Guadalajara House Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
This beautiful and recently updated casa is perfect for the traveler who wants an authentic Mexican experience. Centrally located in the Santa Teresita neighborhood of Guadalajara, the house is within walking distance of fresh squeezed orange juice, piping hot tortillas, and a traditional Mexican open-air marketplace. Banks, restaurants, currency exchange, and other conveniences are also within 3 blocks of the house.
The house was remodeled in 2007 by the owners, who aimed to bring a vibrant energy to the house. Set in an “L” shape, the house is bordered on the long part of the “L” by a patio and garden with pomegranate, lime, guava, avocado, papaya, and mandarin trees, as well as an outdoor eating area and a quiet hammock space to relax and enjoy the colorful cascades of Bouganvillea Blossoms. The house sleeps 6, featuring a queen sized round bed in the master, and a queen and bunk twin beds in the second bedroom. The fully equipped kitchen has beautiful granite countertops, and there are two living rooms: one with couches and another with a composite wood floor perfect for stretching out and doing some yoga. A detached office is located in the back part of the garden, and has a built in desk and bookshelves, high speed internet, and is the ideal retreat space for those in town on business or doing a little bit of work on vacation. The two bathrooms are clean, both have hot water showers and one also has a large bathtub perfect for a relaxing soak. Other amenities available on request include maid and cooking services, reliable and trustworthy child care, and use of a local cell phone.

About Annie Chamberlain
I'm an Idaho girl who set out to see the world and landed in Guadalajara for five years. I met my husband and we started our family in Mexico, and we recently moved back to the United States, where we live on a small farm in Boise, Idaho. We return to Mexico often, as we wish to raise our children to be both bilingual and bicultural. While we are away, our house is managed by our long-time friend Antonia Vargas.
Annie Chamberlain purchased this house in 1996
Why Annie Chamberlain chose Guadalajara
I bought this house in 1996, and my then-boyfriend (soon to be husband) and I remodeled it completely. We sought to fill the house with energy, love, and the feeling of home. Though we now live thousand of miles away on the North Side, we still feel a strong connection to the Casa Colorin. Many of our most important family events have happened there: we had our civil service marriage in the garden, and two of our three children were born in the house, Elena in 2008 and Joaquin in 2011.
What makes this house unique
This house offers privacy and the feeling of being on a little island retreat in the middle of the big city. The decor and layout are true to traditional Mexican culture, but the attention to detail and comfort attend to the U.S. traveler.
