I retired in 1995 and moved to Ajijic, Jalisco Mexico. I enjoy helping people finding out if living in Mexico is for them.

Skip was a wonderful and welcoming host with tons of information about the area and Mexico in general. He is well connected with the ex-pat community and is very knowledgeable about the process of moving to Mexico. He was very nice as were all of the other guests we met.
We liked the very nice open courtyard style of the house, it was beautiful! The friendly dogs barked very loudly every time we entered and left the gate, so don't be startled.
The only drawback was the lack of hot water. We asked Skip about it, and he told us the trick of turning the shower on and off a few times. We got one tepid shower, but after that there was no more hot water.
What a perfect and lovely place to begin a journey to move to the area. So much beauty and areas for conversations and yet maximum privacy with a private bath and patio. Skip was a wonderful resource for so many things. I would recommend this to anyone. We loved the dogs and that it was a dog friendly area. Can't say enough good things about it. Awesome!
My husband and I were in Ajijic for a week in March for dental work (many good dentists in the area). We found Angel Flores through AirBnB (somehow I must have missed it when checking tripadvisor). It's a great place to stay! The rooms are basic and very clean. The mattress was a bit too firm for my liking, but my husband liked it. We spent little time in our room. The garden surrounding the compound is gorgeous. There are covered outdoor rooms, surrounded by gardens - a kitchen, dining room, living room. The outdoor rooms facilitate fun get-togethers with others staying there (we had a great Oscar party!) My husband and I would make some coffee, and sometimes breakfast, and climb to one of two high patios to watch the sunrise. Skip was very helpful with any questions about the area -- I had even taken his advice on a dentist, Dr. Edgard Macias (he was great!) Skip also had great suggestions for restaurants -- I'll be writing a review on one we loved -- Richie's 88, just a couple of blocks away near the town square. We had a great time and would definitely stay at Angel Flores Guest House again!
This is UNIQUE...Now this is a gem that is highly under rated! We feel privileged to have found both the owner Skip and his oasis! We didn't book here before Mexico but on a whim once there and we are so happy we did! Skip has a virtual outside paradise of his own design, an outside kitchen, living area, a place where one can meet other guests and exchange experiences, we loved it! Skip is a virtual fountain of information about Ajijic and Mexico and one feels confident the information that is passed along can be absolutely trusted.. A one night stay that will reverberate with us a long time So much more one can say, this is a delightful experience and although we stayed at three other airbnbs once there, this was our absolute favourite!
