The neighborhood is blue collar with repair shops but very much alive and once inside the house, it is quiet and peaceful. Just relax after your daily adventures and enjoy the pool or a cocktail.

We offer as much expertise about the city as you would like. This could range from restaurant advice to providing information for shopping or any other detail pertaining to the city or mexican culture.

Rob was an awesome host he was quick to reply to all the questions I sent his way.
The villa is amazing and massive and in such an amazing location. Very safe and quiet. Highly recommended will be sure to return next time we are in gh.
Great home located close to the historical downtown district. A unique location that I recommend to those that want to stay close to El Centro. Rob was always quick to respond to our questions during our stay.
Stunning house in a neat, central area of Guadalajara. Rob was very quick to get back to us and very accommodating on our reservation with pretty short notice. Would definitely stay again.
We had a wonderful visit at Rob's villa. It is a beautiful and quiet sanctuary from the city. I loved a swim after a hot day sightseeing and shopping in the city. Although Rob was not in the city during our stay he was always very responsive in email communications with us. I would highly recommend staying at his villa.
Our stay in "the Villa" was great. The house is gorgeous and extremely spacious. Each room has it's own restroom which was a huge plus. The weather in Guadalajara was really nice and we took advantage of the outdoor patio and the pool. While inside, you are completely isolated from anything going on outside. Taco stands and ice cream shops are near by and around the corner. For great birria go to las nueve esquinas, which isn't far. The area of Chapultec known for its bars is a 15 minute taxi drive away.
As a host, Rob was attentive to our needs and extremely responsive. Despite arriving into the city past midnight, Rob made sure to have someone waiting at the house to show us around and to answer any questions we might have.
I would highly recommend staying at the Villa.
Rob was a fantastic host and the home was beautiful. We loved being able to sit outside next to the pool at the end of a long day out and about. The Walmart was super convenient and it was really easy to walk around the corner to grab a taxi. Whenever we had questions, Rob replied immediately with guidance. He helped set up a driver for us and had successful recommendations for local activities. We would definitely rent from Rob again.

Late 40's professional who decided to exit the corporate world and start up some entrepreneurial projects in Mexico. Even with some sacrifices, really loving it. The vacation rentals have been extremely interesting along with a project working with Mexican artists. We are primarily working with artists from Mexico City and helping them market. You will also find some of these pieces, particularly paintings, in the apartment which, I believe, makes the space even better than what appears in the photos.
I originally moved to Guadalajara, a 5 hr drive from Puerto Vallarta. After renovating a house, is now being made available for event rentals as well as for guests to stay and enjoy.
When I am not engaged with some of these projects, I am spending quality time with my partner Felipe, perhaps working out, swimming, or just enjoying a cocktail at one of the local dives.
Some of the people that I have met either staying in one of the units or just chatting with have been extremely interesting. Send me a message if you have any questions that i might be able to help with. Also, we might have another similar property if you week is not available on this calendar
