In the busy city of Guadalajara you will find this hidden pearl between orange, papaya and avocado trees. Once you set foot into our small community garden, you don't feel like you are in the city at all! Hidden behind a big lime tree (fresh lime tea in the mornings!) you find our ground floor apartment. Our apartment is colorfully decorated and has all basics your need. It's not the newest architecture and amenities, but once you have entered this special place, it's hard to leave!
Since we live in a small community-like place, we share the garden and laundry machine. Our apartment is situated in a corner where you have access to a small 'private' terrace under a lime tree where you can relax in the hammock, chairs or benches, while there is always a furry cat around to give you company. The apartment has 2 bedrooms (for now we have to use 1 as storage room, if you request to use it we can maybe arrange that), 1 living room with kitchen and 1 bathroom. For now we have 4 sleeping places available, of which 2 single beds are situated in the open living room which function as the couch as well. The kitchen has a big fridge, a freezer, and old stove/oven, that works just fine. While you cook a tasty meal, go out and explore all the different herbs we grow in our garden like mint, oregano, basil, rosemary and much more :) Please note that since you will stay in community-like place, this is not a place for parties nor can you invite other friends/guests.
Couples, travellers, anyone with an open mindset and does not mind our old stove, and the fact our walls might not be perfectly straight, are welcome. People who look for a place with a soul and enjoy some relaxing time in the garden. Animal lovers are especially welcome since the garden hosts appr. 10 cats, who love to come up for a cuddle!
Disponible para huéspedes
You can access the apartment, parking space for your car, our terrace, garden, laundry place at the back of the garden. Please request if you want to make use of the laundry machine since we don't own it, but rent it from our upstairs neighbor, Jackie. If you are lucky, in summer we sometimes fill up the little pool for some refreshment.
Atención a los huéspedes
Since we will probably be out of the town/country, we will not have the pleasure of meeting you. Instead all will be taken care of by a family member. We will always leave you our phone number in case you need to reach us, and we will help you the best we can.

We are 25+ something year old Mexican / Dutch couple living in Guadalajara. Since we are from different backgrounds, we often find ourselves traveling to Europe, where Inez her family lives. Our travels are not limited to these 2 continents, we see the world as a big canvas and we feel like painting!
