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.

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

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

Wonderful Experience

The Rio Nazas villa is just beautiful, inside and out. Imagine waking to bird calls then watching them bathe in the fountain. From the owner, the driver she recommended to all of the staff who maintain the property, everyone was attentive and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the towns and exploring the surrounding area. If you stay here and want to visit an interesting town, go to Mazamietla. We are already planning to return to Mexico next winter.

Owner's Response: Hi Marge,

I see you have succumb to the charms of central Mexico. I love Mazamitla as well. Thanks for the kind words, and do come back soon. In fact, take a look at the calendar today, after the Superbowl of course, and book your return to Rio Nazas #34. Returning guests are always given priority, not to mention a returning guest discount. Go Seahawks!

A place to remember ....

My husband and I were looking for a memorable and relaxing place in the Chapala/Ajijic area to further celebrate our wedding anniversary and we found it at this lovely place. Truly it was beyond our expectations. No disappointments here.

Each morning I'd wake up early and have coffee relaxing and enjoying the spectacular views from any one of the three terraces or by the pool. Our routine was having breakfast at the house and lunch or dinner out at one of the wonderful seafood restaurants (mostly visited by Mexican folks). For the delicious seafood and awesome views, we recommend El Bambu, La Escondida, and La Iguana (all on the road towards Jocotepec). One note: If you do not like loud music and large crowds, do not go during "la comida" or the happy hour on the weekends. One restaurant you should not miss is Number Four in Ajijic. This is an upper scale restaurant with international cuisine, ambience and nice jazz (loved it!).

We appreciated that the villa kept the charm of Mexico in its design and furnishings and maintaining the well-established gardens. We enjoyed the mandarins and some green prickly green fruit from which my cousin made "agua fresca".

At one point, my cousin who lives in Guadalajara and 86-year mother from SF stayed with us. They loved it! We would talk for hours enjoying the lake views from the terraces.

We'd like to thank Mimi and her husband for allowing us to rent their lovely house. We hope to return next year.

Hasta pronto!

Owner's Response: Dear Deilia and Jose'

It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. Thanks so much for the recommendations. Jake and I will take the road to Jocotepec on our next visit and check out some of the seafood places. We love Four as well. It is a great place to celebrate a special event or just treat yourself for no good reason. About those prickly fruit -- they are guanavanas -- and yes, they make wonderful aquas frescas.

Take a look at our calendar and find a time to return in 2014. Feliz Navidad a ti y su familia.

Ajijic Villa, a Magical Place!

I knew from the pictures and description that this was going to be a really nice place but when we got there we were totally in awe. Pictures do not really do justice to this lovely villa. From the minute you open the lovely gate you walk into a garden paradise with every kind of flower and plant that you could imagine, a pool and fountain.

If that's not enough when you walk into the villa itself every single room has been decorated with class and detail with your comfort in mind. As an ex property manager myself, I am pretty particular when it comes to cleanliness and maintenance of anywhere I stay, and I must say that I would give this an A+ in both those areas.

We also appreciated all of the coordination that Mimi has done to help provide any kind of service you need such as transportation, housekeeping or cooking while you're there.

Ajijic is a small welcoming town where everyone was friendly and helpful. This was the perfect place to celebrate our 20th anniversary!

Owner's Response: Happy Anniversary Cheryl & Gene,

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.
