  1. Hi there, My name is Marc, a 35yo dutch guy. I was hoping anyone could give me some information/feedback on the following subject:-) I plan to start up a (small) business around Chapala/Ajijic region and rent e-bikes. Recently i’ve visited Chapala a couple of times and apart from the fact that i personally love the place, believe that there are possibilities. I suppose here on the forum are quite a lot of members active who might be living in the region for whay much longer, and might have some knowhow or relevant information/tips? Many thanks in advance, Marc
  2. We are newly-arrived Permanent Residents, now living lakeside year 'round. We are seeking a 2+ bedroom, 2+ bath home for a 2-to-3 year lease, appropriately priced. We are researching ChapalaMLS and AccessChapala, but we are especially inquiring to discover any properties coming available but not yet listed. Please contact us by private message, or by email to PaxOrbis@icloud.com. Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. Hello! I'm exploring the possibility of being in the Ajijic area for the next month. I'm currently in an Airbnb, but I'd like to find a place of my own to rent. I'm flexible on dates, but my hard leaving date would be mid-May. I don't need anything luxurious, just a small apartment for one in an area that is close in (I don't have any transportation and prefer to walk everywhere). I'd very much like to have a little kitchen, as I haven't had one for most of my time traveling and I really miss cooking (cheap therapy for me!). I'm clean, respectful, financially secure, and friendly. I speak both Spanish and English and work for myself online. I don't have any pets but I love them. I'm also open to a house/pet sit situation if anyone is seeking someone for that. I can provide a reference from the last gig that I was offered randomly in SMA if needed and I am happy to meet up. I'd prefer to pay 10,000 mex$ or less. Thanks for reading, and please reach out if you have any questions for me.
  4. Does anyone have a recommendation of a beach house rental? Any nice beach where it is reasonably quiet and within just a few hours drive ... 3 to 5 hours?
  5. Hello there - We are a retired couple now living in Ajijic looking for a change of home. We seek a minimum of two bedrooms and studio or better a 3/2 with secure parking for two vehicles. We have an adorable and well-behaved Labrador .... our budget ranges up to $1,600 for a minimum of one year. We are long-termers so we are interested in a multi-year rental opportunity. We prefer a gated community on the mountain with a lake view. Thank you for referring this to an interested landlord.

  7. We are looking for a long term rental or house exchange in the Ajijic area. My husband, son, age 10 and I will be here for a year while our son attends primary school in Ajijic. We need 2-3 bedrooms preferably with access to a pool or the Lake. I am a former creative director and designed environments for hospitals. My husband managed residential construction projects and is open to maintaining the property we rent. We are non-smokers, homeowners and extremely responsible. Excellent references. We have a beautiful, spacious 2 bedroom home with a pool in La Paz, BCS as a possible home exchange for 6-12 months.

It is modern, with lots of light and an open floor plan. I can forward photos and provide more information. Thanks for your consideration!
  8. Hello Lake Chapala community! I am coming to Lake Chapala from Dallas, TX for one month in May/June (I will know the exact dates later) and looking for a small apartment/studio/casita for one person (myself) in Ajijic, west Ajijic, San Juan Cosala or San Antonio. Being close to hot springs in San Juan Cosala is a plus. It needs to be on a QUIET street yet very close to buses and taxis (important, since I can't walk distances). I need to have a full kitchen. Would prefer a bright airy place with an outdoor space, a balcony and/or nice view. Budget 6000 pesos. I am a responsible, quiet person, don't smoke, don't party, coming to explore the area, visit hot springs, and for medical travel. Thank you. Elizaveta
  9. I am an expat service consultant seeking a nice house or apartment in Riberas, Mirasol, Vista Lago, Chapala Haciendas and Chula Vista or similar for a client. She is a retired woman who has a well behaved dog and wants to sign a 6-12 month lease starting in April. She is seeking a 2 bedroom 1 bath place with some Mexican charm and an area for her medium sized dog that is fenced. It does not need to be a large area but needs some outside area for her dog. Her price range is around $900 a month which should include utilities. Wifi is also important. Something close to the bus route would be great as well. It should be furnished with decent appliances. If you have something that will coming available please email me at mexicoinsiderguide@gmail.com.
  10. Hi, Does anyone have or know of a 2 bedroom rental in Zapopan for 2 weeks in July? We are visiting family. There are 3 of us. A house or apartment will do. I've looked at airbnb but perhaps members here have something available too. Closer to the basilica the better! . PM if you have something! Thanks! Rich
  11. I rented at the Moon property. The owner has many rescue barking dogs, the place is so run down, the unit was so dirty I had to hire Spring Clean to clean it and I had to buy my own TV. It was impossible to live there, so I had to leave after 2 months of a year lease. The worst part, I had to hire a lawyer, get a judgement against the owner and the owner still refused to refund my $2,000 security deposit and last months rent!
  12. Our family is moving to Ajijic in July from Buffalo, New York. We are looking to rent a house. We have 3 kids that are enrolled at Instituto Terranova. We have been looking since Christmas time and have been down twice without finding a place we like. We will gladly take any suggestions and are planning to return later this month or early June to rent somewhere. Please see our requirements below and pm us is you have something. Thank you!!! Chris and Anne Marie Our requirements on a house are: 1) At least 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms - it is ok if there is a main house and a casita. More bedrooms and bathrooms is ok too; 2) In the village if possible, La Floresta is ok, West Ajijic, Upper Ajijic or Villa Nova is ok, but no gated communities. We like a more traditional looking house; 3) We need a long term lease - at least 1 year, probably 2 years. We will consider renting something from July - December and have more time to look once we are in the area, but we do not want anything month-to-month; 4) We would like a pool, but it is not absolutely necessary; 5) We would like to get a small dog, also not necessary. Our budget is $1000 - $2000 US a month including utilities and internet. We will pay more for more Thank you in advance for any leads you can provide!
  13. After 20 years working as an engineer and manager in the U.S. I have had enough of corporate life and am contemplating early retirement. Thus I plan to spend the month of April experiencing Lakeside life as part of a scouting mission to Mexico. I could use some advice on good neighborhoods to get the most out of the visit and perhaps some help vetting a rental before I commit to a whole month. Online listings and photos don't tell the whole story, and I'd hate to find myself in an undesirable part of town or next to a jackhammer testing facility. On the other hand, I am doing my best to stay within my early retirement budget and expect to make some compromises. I will be driving down with my dog, so off street parking and a garden/courtyard area would be nice. Good internet service would be helpful. Although I will have a car, it would be nice to be able to walk to restaurants, etc. It's just me and the dog this time so I don't need a large house... I would rather be paying for location and quality than size. Tips on where I should focus my search would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this is a tiresome subject on this board. Feel free to message me directly.
  14. I am looking for a furnished rental from approximately Feb 1 to March 15 for one person, female, senior but not feeble. Preferably studio or small apartment. Preferably with all utilities, WiFi, etc included. Prefer La Floresta to San Antonio or Chapala. Of course all my "prefers" are flexible due to the last minute search. Please PM me if you have or know of something or post here. Whichever. A house sit would also work as my dates are somewhat flexible. Thanks.
  15. My wife and I would like to rent a house or apartment near Ajijic for the month of September.
  16. A plea for help. After spending (and owing) mucho deneros on medical tests and procedures Laurie and I found ourselves unable to find the cash for "first, last and deposit" to rent a new place at the end of our lease. Laurie placed an ad on Beg Borrow Buy and Sell requesting a house sitting job. Our prayers were answered By Pat Moir who needed someone to look after her 5 cats and wonderful home. We arranged that Laurie and I would stay and care for said cats and home until the end of October. Perfect! We had a place and would be able to save the money for a new home of our own come November. Pat said she had wanted to make a difference in our lives and was eager to help us. Unfortunately Pat, the wonderful woman that she was, passed away enroute to Canada where she was going to spend time with family after losing her husband. Her daughter ,Kim, arrived to take stock of the house and grieve. Things were still on course for us to stay in the house as Pat wished. When the step son arrived,Kyle, all Hell broke loose. They both now want us to vacate. Unfortunately we neither have somewhere to go or the money to deal with a new rental. Mexican law states that they need to give us 3 months notice whether we had a signed contract or not due to basic possession of the house. I haven't the heart to get into an ugly battle with someone who has just lost her Mom even though apparently have every right to. We both understand the agony these folks are going through but to toss us to the street is beyond uncompassionate. Pat herself I believe would be appalled at this. She was a woman of her word and this would go against the grain of her core values. Kyle has offered us some pittance of financial aid just to speed up the process but it will not be enough. So once more we are putting out the feelers for a house sitting gig ( which we are willing to pay for) or a rental that requires no first and last. We can pay up to $700 a month. We are BEGGING someone out there to help us find a place post haste. Laurie is in California right now for medical reasons and I am left here to feel like a leper in a home that was supposed to be ours for 3 months. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get us off the streets! My email is spexmex@yahoo.ca phone number is 331 433 1408 Thank you in advance for any and all help.

  18. I will be looking to rent long-term in the next few months. This needs to be a place that will be ok with my 3 friendly and quiet rescue dogs. My preferences are that it be unfurnished with a lake view. I am able to put down a pet deposit and put up a fence, if asked. 2+ bedrooms, secure, with a garden. If it turns out to be the right house for us, I would sign a lease for several years.
  19. Hi, I'm a retired artist seeking a two bedroom home or casita to rent with a yard, long term. I have a well behaved dog, and am looking for a quiet, private home/property to rent, not more than $800.00, preferably less, starting October or November.
  20. Looking for small casita, efficiency or apartment on lower Ajijic or la Floresta suitable for one person for month of December. Up to $700. email with particulars and phone number. Thanks email: lizlarrabee@gmail.com
  21. I posted that I was looking for a long term rental with yard, but now I'm seeking a quiet, 2 bedroom home with enclosed yard, on a month to month basis. I'm a retired artist with a very sweet, obedient golden retriever. Look forward to hearing from you.
  22. HI, I'm seeking a 1-2 bedroom rental, long term, with large enclosed yard, starting in September, October or November. I prefer to be on the outskirts of central Ajijic, and like the Tio Domingo and Christina areas near Rancho Salud, or San Antonio near the lake, and possibly other areas that feel open and relatively quiet. Close to the lake or view would be nice. I have a golden/collie dog who I like to take on walks and am a retired artist, teacher, and homeowner. Don't want to pay more than $750 a month, and preferably less. I speak Spanish and have lived in Mexico (other areas) for many years. Thank you.
  23. My wife and I are moving to Ajijic in a couple of weeks, renting a 2 bedroom near Ajijic centro for a year. I see that most rentals have property tax included, some have some utilities included, and a few maybe all. To help us budget and bargain, we'd appreciate knowing some ballpark figures for expenses we might run up to keep the household running. Such as: Electricity? Propane (Is this what's commonly used for cooking)? Water (for potable H2O I figure we'll buy those big bottles)? Wi-fi? Land phone line? We won't need TV cable or a dish if all we do is stream through our laptop--and that's possible--right? Some places advertise that they have internet available. What's the value of this? Also, some rental listings include maid and/or gardener every 2 weeks. What is this service usually valued at? My sense is that all these expenses might add up to about $150/month. Does that seem about right, generally speaking? I've read about some of the unexpected adventures one might have when paying bills--we're just interested here in attaching some dollar or peso value to what we'll be paying. Thanks for your help.
  24. We are a retired couple who want to relocate to the Ajijic area. We are currently in Akron, Ohio. We have lived and owned property in San Luis Potosi, Guanajuato, and Patzcuaro. We want to spend about US$850 per month for a furnished home (not condo) that has a jardin for our two small dogs, and includes all utilities. The house should have at least two bedrooms, preferably three, at least 1.5 bathrooms, preferably 2. We would like to be reasonably close to shopping. Our house here is on the market. We don't know how long it will take to sell, but we might be looking to move in the August-September timeframe. We are planning a visit to Ajijic May 5th to the 12th. We would like to see any properties that time. We will be only interested in at least a year rental or longer. Please keep us posted on properties that fit this description. Thank you.
  25. Hi there, I am looking for a house rental (minimum 2 bedroom/2 bath) close to the Ajijic Plaza and the Ajijic Malecon starting November 1, 2015 for a minimum of a month. Please contact me if you have or know of something suitable. Thank you. Lisa NomadLee9@aol.com
