This room is in the center of the house. It has some early morning light and is very quiet. It is often requested for those that have studying to do. It is a nice queen bed with all other amenities of the whole house.
Eastern window for morning light. Desk for computing with excellent WiFi. Flat screen TV is opposite the bed. A very popular room!
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.
It has 24/7 kitchen privileges, and all other free stuff, like wi-fi at it's fastest, full cable and free phone calls from your desk- worldwide! Do you know of a hotel that offers free phone service?
This is just one room of a very large house. Please look at the other rooms to see which one fits your style if any. 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! Their are restaurants everywhere in this upscale neighborhood, along with shopping of any kind-from street antiques to high end Plaza Andares. We are in the middle of the whole metro area. Public transit is two blocks away-going everywhere-unless you want a taxi called for you. Taxis in Guadalajara are very inexpensive.
This house is unique because of the great neighborhood it is in. It is all bigger homes, well maintained parks on either side of the house and a friendly and safe feeling that is felt from arrival!
Communal kitchen 24/7
Free phone calls
very fast wifi from everywhere in house and grounds

Interaction with Guests
I interact with my guests as they express to me what their perfect arrangement would be. It is a large home. If a couple or couples want privacy then that is what they will get- but I am always available by house phone to my cell phone if needed for anything. I have a space in the back of the house that I call "my own space!" . This house can be rented by room or rooms-or it is great for a group travelling as one-with all 4 bedrooms and tons of house downstairs to enjoy a really fun area of the city.
No smoking in house
Enjoy your stay!
Although I was raised in the Pacific Northwest of the United States, I consider myself a Californian. After 30 years of working in the high end hospitality business, I moved to Mexico- something planned for a long time. Colonia Chapalita in Guadalajara is the perfect neighborhood to enjoy the comforts of a large gated home and a great neighborhood with parks surrounding the property. And that was just what looking for!
Now that I am enjoying people from all over, I seem to be getting people that enjoy this uncrowded and private house in the new elegant, yet pricey hotel district. It is perfect to come home to get a good nights , ready for the next days' adventure.
This is not restored villa- but is a very well maintained large home with lots of amenities and privacy in a safe and pretty area of Guadalajara.
I want guests to enjoy their stay by making themselves feel at home from the time they arrive. I respect the privacy of all guests, as I do for myself. But I am always reachable to encourage them to try all of this area's restaurants of many different cuisines, and of course the fascinating Colonial Spanish architecture in every direction. I have had a good time meeting so many travellers for business, pleasure or both! The nightlife is everywhere as well that caters to all walks of life- at all hours of the day!
I welcome in advance the next group of 'price savvy travelers' who know a great deal when traveling with friends. Why pay for an elegant hotel that surround us-when you can have an entire home for much less? I am ready to answer any questions you may have. Although I do not get a lot of reviews on this particular site, I can be easily looked up on travel sites for a better idea of what I think is important for my guests.
Saludos de Guadalajara,
