Just returned from a one-week stay at Casa de Como Casita #1. Can't praise it enough. Bob and Sharon (the welcoming owners and hosts) were so friendly, welcoming and helpful (with tips for the area) that I immediately felt at home, even traveling as a single.

The bed was very comfortable and cozy (what a relief!) with the right amount of blankets for a time frame that had a couple of cold days, the lighting was good for reading, the wifi was blip-free, the pool was refreshing, the security (with three locked doors behind me) and the pets (two adorable dogs, Rosie and Chico, and a sweet cat, Lupita) ---- were fantastic. This is one of the most "user-friendly" places I've ever stayed.

Everything was clean, it has an "old-world-feel" (Mexican tiles) and the kitchen/closet storage and kitchen supplies were excellent. The owners have thought of everything. I didn't cook there (on the 2-burner propane stove) but did use the fridge and microwave for leftovers from a number of the fine Ajijic restaurants.

Location is very central. Shops, restaurants, the Lake Chapala Society, the lake, the plaza, the church ---- all nearby. What a treat to be in the middle of everything.

Owners are very helpful with tips on transportation. I managed to get there myself, from the Guadalajara bus station but Bob and Sharon were very helpful in arranging a trip back to the GDL airport.

I can't think of anything they missed. Except for not having CNN (I may have missed it), everything was perfect. Take your own phone and hair dryer, but I didn't expect those anyway, with a little casita (not a hotel or B&B). Can't wait to return, for a longer time next time.

Casita # 1 was just perfect for our first trip to Ajijic!
Bob and Sharon were excellent hosts, offering advice and infomation on an as needed basis. We
really enjoyed the solar heated pool after our morning explorations in the village. A perfect siesta spot
every day! Private, intimate and most importantly, extremely simpatico! We will return, without a doubt!

“Best Little Casita in the Village”

My husband and I just spent two weeks at Casa de Como Casita #1. What a great place to stay! The casita is very clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen. The casita location is within walking distance to anything you might want to do in Ajijic. Bob and Sharon, Casa de Como owners, are wonderful hosts. We highly recommend these accommodations.

This was a truly long awaited vacation and Bob and Sharon made it a memorable one. The accommodations were very clean and nicely decorated. Being situated right in the heart of town was great, as you could walk everywhere. I would recommend the accommodations to anyone.

Thank you again

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 6 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed in Casita #1 for 2 months and loved it. It is a very good location especially for someone who hasn't been there before. An easy walk to every place you would want to go. Bob and Sharon are very friendly and helpful. We also felt very safe there. Also it is quiet which is unusual for a Mexican village. It includes a washer/dryer and a very nice pool. Generally A+++ all the way.

“Beware of dogs!”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

The casita is inside the owner's backyard. You must walk through their door space in order to enter or exit. There are two dogs on the premises, one is a pit bull that will chase you growling all the way to your door and try to jump on you. They also wash their dogs in the pool. Dogs also poop on the shared outside space. Don't leave anything out or the dogs will destroy it and watch where you step. The rooms were fine, but roaches dropped from the ceiling onto the beds. There was also a dead scorpion in the bathroom. The wife, Sharon, is very nice, but the husband is a Know-It-All.

We had the pleasure of staying in Casa de Como Casita for a week in March..
The casita is in the best location in Ajijic..No need for a car..easy walking to almost everywhere..to Walmart, groceries, Casino..middle of town & so many wonderful restaurants...
If you want to explore...taxi available or hop on a bus & just go...
Bob & Sharon are great hosts...left us alone..but very helpful with the answers for any of our questions...
The pool & patio, was heaven...perfect....would love to go back..but the seemed to be booked up...well in advance. I think we were lucky to be able to rent for a week...Perfect hide a away....
