FAMILY FRIENDLY, PET FRIENDLY WALLED VILLA WITH SOLAR HEATED POOL.

Ajijic Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Location: Ajijic, Lake Chapala, Mexico

Unlock the door in the wall and step into flower filled grounds with abundant fruit trees, tropical birds, a solar heated pool, and enough space for a game of croquette or bocce ball.

This 4,800 s.f. home is nestled in the foothills of Ajijic with views of Lake Chapala. The 2 story residence is about 3/4 mile from the city center of this tranquil English-speaking town and only 40 minutes from historic Guadalajara.

The villa provides the perfect getaway and is the ideal location for lazy days of sunning, swimming, bird watching, sipping margaritas, or reading. In the evenings you can enjoy superb meals at charming nearby restaurants or create your own meals in the villa's gourmet kitchen and eat on one of the outdoor terraces. The balmy breezes and quiet nights will soothe and revive you; and when you are revived, you can work online or keep in touch with folks back home using our wi-fi and high speed internet connections and VOIP set to your USA area code.

This walled property features 2 master suites, four terraces, abundant fruit trees and a view of Lake Chapala.

I am a retired lawyer and my husband is a retired teacher. We live in the E. Bay Area of Northern California and get down to Mexico about twice a year.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2005

My husband and I visited Ajijic for 4 days in the summer of 2005. Before we left, we bought this house! It was the most impulsive thing we had ever done, especially since we were not planning to move to Mexico. However, we love having a home in the magical little town of Ajijic. And now that we are sharing it with our guests, it makes sense to keep it.

For me it's all about the tranquility. We have the mountains in back of us, the lake down below, and tropical birds splashing in the fountain in front of the terraza. I'm a golfer so I play at Chula Vista just about every day when we're there. My husband is a computer guy so he spends most of his days online. But we eat out most nights -- so that is our together time. Also we're both readers so we bring a stack of books and magazines and catch up on our reading in Ajijic.

Ajijic stay

  • 5 of 5
Definitely recommend this house. It's huge and can accommodate a large family. The house is located on a quiet street and the views are amazing. We decided to travel during the rainy season and the scenery is absolutely stunning. The pool is a great addition and the sound system is excellent (but please remember to bring some CDs). There are several restaurants within close proximity. Looking forward to returning!

Best of the Best

  • 5 of 5
After spending 30 days in Mexico,Rio Nazas was the best of all our accommodations beautiful Villa , great view,well decorated plenty of room and very nice grounds.pictures do not give the villa justice,being there is the only way to feel the Magic of the Villa good location even the walk to town was fine. great pool just the right size and very warm water,the outdoor B/Q was a great touch.The villa was so nice we spent a lot of time cooking in and enjoying all the amenities of the Villa. Sever trips in the area,Lake Chapula,Joctopec and Tequila were fun but Ajijic was our 1st pick.lot's of places to eat in town priced to fit all budget's. Tango is a must lunch or dinner. Ten days was not near enough and hope to return for a longer stay. Also any side trips you want to take Mimi has a very good contact.Once again we thank Mimi for a lovely place to stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Wayne,

Reading your nice review really made me long for Rio Nazas #34. My husband and I can't get there until October this year and we are really looking forward to it. We will go to dinner at Ajijic Tango the day we arrive, so I'll remember to make reservations from here. 30 days may not be enough time to see Mexico but it is enough time to unwind in Ajijic. Check out our calendar and plan your next month long vacation at Rio Nazas #34. Best to you and the family,
Mimi JJ

Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5
Truly a beautiful home, we spent most of our Ajijic time in Mimi's yard, simply beautiful. All our meals were outside on one patio or the other. The pool is a very nice size for cooling off and a little exercise.
The upstairs master bedroom is huge, as is the ensuite. Sunrise is spectacular right from bed. Second master is also a nice size, and very well appointed.

A Magical Spot!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent March 2014 at Mimi's lovely home in Ajijic! This was our fourth trip to the village and this spot was the best place we have stayed. As other reviews have stated ,it is located on a very quiet street but is still close to the main square. The garden is especially lovely this time of year and we actually got to eat the bananas that grow on two trees close to the house. We had another couple join us for 10 days and they loved the fact that they had their own on- suite bathroom and that they could access the patio from their room. Mimi provides everything you need including golf clubs! It is amazing to wake up every morning to the beautiful view of the sunrise over the lake and mountains! We were so happy here that we have already booked for next March! We look forward to returning! Thanks Mimi.

Exceeded Expatations

The casa was better then we expected. This large beautifull house and lush grounds were beyond compare. A rare combination of a fantastic view and privacy allowed us one of our most enjoyable vacations. Located close to town but far enough away to provide connvience and peace and quiet. From the fresh flowers on arrival to the beautiful furnishing and art work Mimi has take the extra steps to insure her guests an exceptional experience. Mimi was helpfull in recommending car transfer services and
pointing us in the right direction for car rental. It was a pleasure working with one so knowledgable.

Fantastic Mexican Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We were so privileged to be able to spend two glorious weeks in this most beautiful Ajijic villa. What a splendid way to celebrate our first retirement vacation. The house and grounds are spectacular and extremely well cared for. The house is comfortable and spacious with ample space to be with friends and have privacy as well. Every day dawned with a glorious blue sky and celebratory bands and fireworks! We couldn't have dreamed of a better place to be than at Miimi's wonderful Ajijic home. We have already booked our return for 2014! Thank you Mimi, Sarah, Juan and Monika for a fabulous holiday!

Owner's Response: Hi Paula,
You are so welcome. I have already told Sarah -- and she told Juan and Monika -- that you are returning in December. They are very pleased about that and so am I. Hope that 2014 has gotten off to a great start for the two of you. Thank you for being our guests and for taking the time to post a review.

Best,
Mimi JJ

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Rock Climbing, Health/Beauty Spa

Golf: There are 2 great golf courses near the house. The first is Chula Vista, a small, visually stunning nine hole course with no electric carts. The caddies, some of them English-speaking are wonderful and knowledgeable. Most golfers play this course twice. Chula Vista is about 3 miles from the house.

The Chapala Country Club also has a nine hole course, providing an 18 hole option. This course is longer than the course at Chula Vista and and has electric carts. It is a lovely place to play, about 20 minutes from the house.

There are also several world class courses in Mexico, several of which are in Guadalajara. Guadalajara is 45 - 60 minutes away from Rio Nazas #34.
