Wonderful experience here! The space was lovely, Cathy is a doll, and the "caravan" was exactly perfect for us. Highly recommend!
It is hard to sum up my month in Ajijic. I went seeking comfort, rejuvenation and simple pleasure. Without question, I landed in the RIGHT place! The uniqueness of the caravan, garden, comfortable covered porch, restful sleeps, easy strolls to the lake and square, sounds for morning (birds and more birds); they were all so welcomed. What was not expected was the delightful host, Cathy. She is a creative, thoughtful and a genuine heart. It was pure pleasure Cathy. And you are right, I will be back!
I don't know what was more beautiful, the Gypsy Caravan in the gardens or my hostess Cathy's heart and spirit. Actually I do know...BOTH! I knew the first day of my arrival that the Universe had set me up for a very special experience...my body, mind and spirit were nurtured and cared for by my surroundings and Cathy's five star hospitality. By the end of my 4 week stay, I felt like family and to me, that is the greatest gift of all!
Ajijic is an amazing town, the views are just unbelievable. Cathy was an excellent host, always making sure we had everything we needed. Great space and privacy.
Cathy was a great host and accommodated us well. Wish we had been able to visit longer but we will definitely stay at her beautiful caravan again. The location was perfect - only a few blocks from the plaza. Felt like we were in this beautiful, private garden paradise - oh, wait!! - we were!
Cathy is a fantastic host, she's very sweet and was so helpful and knowledgable about the area. We had a great time in her gypsy caravan! Very central location, close to the lake and the plaza. We would love to stay here in the future and highly recommend it to anyone.
Location, location, location!! Cathy's place was perfectly situated for anyone wishing to literally have the town at their doorstep. In the 7 days we were in Ajijic, we never needed or wanted a car. Everything was within walking distance of Cathy's place - shops, restaurants, the lake. When we wanted to relax, Cathy's place was the perfect retreat. The caravan and garden were a lovely oasis. But the most memorable part of our experience was Cathy herself. Pleasant, considerate, helpful at all times, Cathy was the perfect host. Cathy, your thoughtfulness was very much appreciated. As travelers in a new land, to us you were the friendly face in the crowd of strangers. Thanks for everything.
What a gem of a place! Such charm and character all packed into one cabin. Being set back off the little street its on in the courtyard was great. We both thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside, smelling the flowers and taking in the weather. Cable TV (but who needs it with the birds signing to you!), good WIFI signal, refrigerator, water, good shower pressure, plenty of storage. The location couldn't be better for the village. Cathy was available, but not intrusive. Outstanding value for the accommodation - not to be passed up!
The Caravan is set in a beautiful garden with mountain views, centrally located in Ajijic. Not only were Cathy and her family wonderful hosts but they played with our dogs while we were out exploring the town. The room has a coffee pot, a mini-fridge, as much water as you can drink and is totally private as it is separated from the house. We can't wait to come back!
Cathy's Gypsy Caravan is smack in the most charming area of Ajijic. Being a small town you can walk everywhere you need to go, but this place is surrounded by everything that you would want to walk to in the first place.
The caravan itself is very charming and you wake up to the birds chirping every morning. Nights are calm and we got some of the best sleep we have had in months while we were there.
The cabin is equipped with a tv and dvd player and cathy provides drinking water and coffee for guests.
Probably the best part of staying at the caravan was Cathy herself. She is a very outgoing and friendly host and was both understanding and accommodating when our plans changed about 6 times in a matter of 48 hours, she gave us great 'off the beaten patch' recommendations, and made us feel comfortable and welcome at all times. We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a few days in Ajijic. Gypsy Caravan gets two thumbs up.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
