My friend and I had a great 2-week vacation in this Mexican roof top style apartment. The apartment has everything you need from cooking essentials to Internet and flat screen TV with English and Spanish channels like ESPN and CNN. Outside the apartment door is a private patio with a table and chairs for dining alfresco or just relaxing.
Being the first time in Guadalajara, I realized that this apartment’s west side location is a preferred area because it has neighborhood parks, small tiendas, clay tennis courts, a weekly open market and easy access to restaurants and larger retail stores like Wal-Mart and Super Markets. We rented a car but really didn’t need one to get around the city. Natividad, the owner, was very helpful and gave us an information sheet with a bus guide and important facts about the area. Two weeks wasn’t long enough to experience it all and we plan to return in 2015 for a longer stay at Natividad and Francisco’s guest apartment. A special note: the owners are open to an apartment exchange, which is what we did, and they stayed in my VRBO Southern California apartment for 2 weeks.
