  1. Our little restaurant coffee has been closed since 30th november, we keep looking for a New space too keep making what we love, fresh food and serve you! We rr looking for a space, local, casita, garage or so, to reopen! Just let me know if you got something! Thank you! 😉
  2. I'd bet a million whatevers almost all of y'all are owners not renters. But just to vent ... I've been three years in this pueblo and I'm looking for my 7th rental house. The rental problems were not really the same in all instances. Had a guy next door who'd beat his wife late at night. Had a full on card-caring prozy across from my place who'd bring her sleazy johns home while the children were there. Then there were ranging, rogue barking, fighting street dogs. Most of the pain was based in broken promises and/or flat out lying. The word, in case you don't know, for a landlord or landlady is casaro(a). Pretty sure that is akin to, home maker. Mexicans make good neighbors. They are polite, helpful and thoughtful ... to their standards, only. Noise doesn't seem to bother them and it'd be against their nature to complain if it did. I'm not afraid to complain. I love the house I now have, no neighbors, no speaker cars, no traffic. My nearest neighbor is a horse. My street has no name. So the casera comes to collect the rent, she's a Tapatia, aggressive like a Chilanga. As soon as the bills were secure in her hand she shouts out, I have to raise your rent, I want to inspect the house every month, I want a one-year contract. I asked if she'd left something of value in the house, like a grand piano? There's nothing damageable here apart from taking the lives of some roaches. Her presentation was enough for me, I gave notice. There isn't a lot of rentals here. The town is in a national park, a desirable place to live. But people here are so very nice to me, I never want to leave, I want to die here. A phrase y'all have to learn, if you don't already know it is, a lo chino; you do business like the cheap Chinese. "Me cobra a lo chino". A place I just looked at wants me to pay half the CFE bill as their house and the rental are on the same meter (an infraction round here). There are six in their family and one in mine. It's not a fortune, it's the realization you're doing business with a person with a twisted sense of fairness. I had to nix it. Too bad, so sad.
  3. Margo with another Foxy (fat white Maine Coon) question: Will it be difficult to find an inexpensive small apartment or casita that accepts cats for long term rentals?
  4. I am looking for a nice rental with a garden area to sit outside close to the market for December, January and February. Do you know of one? I am also looking for Rony Clignet's (the Belgian chocolate man) email address or phone number as I understand that he keeps track of potential rentals in Chapala. Thank you. Lorraine
  5. I am looking for a nice rental in Chapala close to the market with an outdoor seating area for December, January, February and possibly more. The perfect rental that I had for several years is no longer available. It is just for me but I need room to put up a long table for my art work. I have a walking issue so must be near the main market area. Please PM me if you have a lead and I will have a Chapala resident friend check it out for me. Thank you. Lorraine
  6. Looking to rent a fully furnished casa, casita or apartment in Lake Chapala or Ajijic from December 2017 – April 2018 (dates can be flexible), preferably in a secured gated community and within a reasonable walking distance to town, or central plaza. I am fit and enjoy a good walk. Would like something in the $500-$600 range. About me: I’m a Canadian writer, responsible, reliable, quiet, an avid gardener, yoga practitioner and meditator. I spent last winter in Tequisquiapan in a two bedroom casa and am interested in exploring Lake Chapala and Ajijic. I am a recent Lake Chapala Society member and look forward to getting involved in the community. Please contact me at: cwagner@yorku.ca or via phone: 001-416-538-2644
  7. Hey all you rental experts. I do plan on consulting an accountant but I was curious to hear advice from those of you that are renting furnished properties. I just bought an apartment in Guadalajara that I will turn into a high end luxury short-term rental. I'm currently researching what the all in taxes are renting out the property on a short-term rental. Besides the annual property tax, which seems quite low compared to the USA and other places I own real estate, what are all the other taxes involved that are required as a non-resident American renting out their furnished property? I understand that there is an IVA tax (16% for interior of Mexico counties) as well as income/rental taxes. If someone can shed light on their experiences renting out short-term. I realize many probably don't declare all their income and therefore don't pay all the proper taxes but I always prefer to do everything legal. I also understand that there are several items deductible against the income tax like utilities, repairs, cleaning supplies, staff salaries, property management fees, property taxes and replacement of items, etc for Mexican citizens but looks like flat 25% tax on gross income for non-resident foreigners. I'm just trying to do some estimates of what the net taxes will look like. A huge thanks in advance for any information or insight you can provide on this topic along with your experiences. PS. I found this link online but it's a few years old so I wanted to see if this falls in line with your experiences: http://www.theyucatantimes.com/2014/11/facts-to-know-about-taxation-when-renting-your-condos-houses-or-villas-in-mexico/
  8. Hi Lakesiders, Can you help? I will be moving to Chapala in mid April and am looking for a rental in Chapala Centro specifically. My full wish list---2+ bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (tub please), good water pressure, enough hot water for full bath, good internet possibilities, some green space, place for a bicycle. Doesn´t matter if it´s furnished. Would love to have a dog. Can I see the lake from home? Would love to deal directly with the landlord. Will consider something that needs renovation in exchange for guaranteed low rent in the future. Is this pie in the sky? Looking at the listings it seems these wishes are possible. Many thanks for taking the time to answer. Hoolia
  9. I am looking for a 2bed 2bath unfurnished house for long term rent in Ajijic. The lease where I am ends May 31. House needs up to date appliances and covered parking. Otherwise, I have my own furniture.
  10. Returning to Chapala on December 13th - and shortly thereafter our son and five yr old grandson arrive for about a week's stay! Since our place is close to the Malecon, we would love to be able to rent a kid's bike and a kayak during their stay. Any info about a place that does this type of rental in Chapala or Ajiijic would be *greatly* appreciated! Gracias~
  11. From another board, landlords who have not paid taxes on rent might be in big trouble. Hacienda, Mexican IRS, has hired 800 agents to investigate areas where foreigners own rental property. http://www.mexconnect.com/cgi-bin/forums/gforum.cgi?post=189489;sb=post_latest_reply;so=ASC;forum_view=forum_view_collapsed;;page=unread#unread http://mexico.escapeartist.com/newsletter/foreigners-who-own-rent-mexico-its-time-to-get-legal Emoticon won't go away. It is created by the " B)" and can't get rid of it.
  12. Edited: Violation of board policy regarding rental ads. Only rental ads allowed here are out of area resort rentals, like beach rentals. This board is owned and operated by Coldwell Banker Chapala Realty who also lease and manage local rentals. Sorry but competing local rentals cannot be posted here. Please see rental property advertising policy of this board pinned above.
  13. I remain undecided about a long-term stay in Ajijic for the moment. Does anyone live or know of someone who lives at this complex? It is avaiable on a short-term basis and can be booked via Airbnb with a credit card, which suits me fine. According to Google Maps it is only 2 kms. from the main plaza and very near the lake. The House Rules in the ad say that it is a quiet place and that neither parties or noise are allowed after 10 PM. If anyone is presently living there or has lived there can you post a comment? it would be appreciated. The pool looks large from the ad and from the Google Maps aerial view as well.
