The space

This quiet room is located in the center of the house, giving it a peaceful feeling for the traveler who wants to work on a laptop or watch a good movie. All amenities apply to other rooms listed in this large house. Check them out along with pictures of common areas.
You have 24/7 kitchen privileges, and all other inclusive amenities, like very good wi-fi at 100 Mbps-wired, 45-50 wireless. , We provide cable with programming from local stations to the premier and pay per view genres. Most guests like to use their own phone privately, but we offer free local AND long distance calls from phones in the house.
This is just one room of a large large house. Please look at the other rooms to see which one fits your personality. The whole house with the 4 rooms that I rent out can be rented as a whole package as well. That is where you will see most of the pictures of the house and the beautiful Chapalita area! There are 30 restaurants for every budget in this upscale neighborhood, along with shopping of any kind-from street antiques to two supermarkets, 2 blocks away. Public transit is two blocks away-going everywhere-unless you want a taxi called for you. Taxis in Guadalajara are very inexpensive. We also have an Uber account that is very popular.
This house is unique because of the great neighborhood it is in and one can walk the streets on safe sidewalks day or evening. Perfect for a guest that will be going to Expo-Guadalajara! We get many business travellers, but must advise you that we cannot list as a business ready home because we have a dog. We will not give her up and you need not even see her in this very large home. She lives with us in a private apartment on the back of the house up the private stairs in back that guests do not use. She is taken out to the park daily when guests are not around. We just need to provide this info because of a review that caused someone to feel the need to expound on this. So we do-on every page we can! Atenita de Chapalita is our beloved pet. In the event that the whole house is rented, she stays with grandma and grandpa not far from home! Not a problem for most.

Guest access

Communal kitchen 24/7
All rooms and spaces are guest friendly except the back stairs that lead to a private apt. space for us. I or a manager will always be somewhere at least by phone to address any concerns or needs in the house or getting around. We are here to help, but respect your privacy, since we all know that really is what most people want. We still enjoy conversations with forward thinking people from all around the world!

Interaction with guests

Someone can always be reached by phone for anything they need or would like to know about. We are not always home, but always available. We are very friendly if you want to talk. Progressive thinking people are most welcome to enter into a lively political exchange- or not! But most of the time guests need their space as we tend to get more business people attending Expo-Guadalajara. We are always reachable, and you will be greeted personally for keys and walk-through. We DO love to hear from guests about anything that they feel needs to be addressed, in terms of repairs, loose somethings- or a burned out lightbulb that can in fact be easily overlooked even by our wonderful housekeeper, Maricruz! We would rather hear it from you while you are here-so we can fix it-rather than hear about it in a post review. This is a big house. We want it to be great for your needs. We will appreciate this very much!

The neighborhood

The neighborhood is minutes from the Expo-Guadalajara, by walking or an Uber ride. We have two parks on each side of us for enjoying the other neighbors or exercising. Grocery stores are 3 blocks away, or food can be ordered online and delivered for your convenience. Shopping malls are within walking distance and there are 30+ restaurants for all pocketbook that surround us. This is a great neighborhood and is close to everything you may be looking for.

Getting around

Transportation by bus or taxi is very easy. We also have an Uber account for faster service if needed. Please see maps upon arrival. We share lots of information with our guests, from personal knowledge to pamphlets and large maps.

Other things to note

This house has been in the business of renting to individuals or whole groups of people for nearly 10 years now. We want you to feel at home while here at all times. We only ask that if there are many guests that you would use the same rules after 10PM to maybe lower the volume on TV's or music systems, unless you have rented the whole place! Then rock on.... If you are a late night person it is all good as long as your return home is respectful of other guests in residence. We want everyone to enjoy their experience here at Dickinson Guest House. Thanks

Guadalajara, Mexico · Joined in November 2009

I am an easy going and tend to get along with forward thinking people. Karim, my partner here is usually busy with his private jewelry business, or helping his family with their business. In his free time he is studying law. We both respect our guests privacy and are bright enough to pick up those vibes if in fact we are here. I truly enjoy meeting other people and know when they want to be alone. In a whole house rental with friends or colleagues-that is most of the time! Although I am retired, this large home keeps me busy.
