We are located 2 blocks from the west end of the Ajijic malecon on Lake Chapala. It is a 10-15 minute walk to the plaza, but the public bus passes our home about every 10 minutes. Our wonderful next door neighbor, Sam, runs a taxi service. There are several small grocery stores within a block.
The room, itself, is accessed by a completely private entrance inside the property. There is no need for any interaction with the main house.
Just outside your door there is a niche with a refrigerator, microwave, dishes and utensils. These are strictly for your own use. Close by is the laundry room that can be accessed from the alley that also leads to the back of the property where you can use the swimming pool, outdoor kitchen and patio furnishings.
In the room, there is a coffee maker, comfortable seating area, lots of books to peruse and an ensuite bath with shower. There is also a cable TV and private phone for local calls.
The laundry room, lower patio with outdoor kitchen and the pool area are open for your use.
We may or may not be around when you are visiting. However, we provide information to you about contacting our property manager as well as other information you might need. If you have any problems, PLEASE speak to us. We have had 5-star ratings 90% of the time on our rentals. Our first guest in this particular room had the misfortune of being here when our water system failed. Even though we reduced her rent, she still marked down her rating of this lovely (her assessment, too) room.
We also rent our casita which is at the very back of the property beyond the pool. It is possible that you might be sharing our public area with other guests, but your room is very separate from the rest of the property.
Smoking is allowed on the roof or out on the street - not in the public areas.
Otherwise, use good judgment and enjoy your visit. We will all be happy.
