“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

I have just returned from a 2 week stay at Estrellita's and what a lovely, comfortable place to spend 2 weeks. Lorraine the owner made us feel so welcome we felt like part of her family. The rooms where done in traditional Mexican colours with very clean, comfortable beds & so much artwork to take in. The B & B is located so close to everything such as the Malecon for the early morning walks by the lake, a few short blocks to the center of town with all it's shops & many restaurants all within walking distance. A very healthy continental breakfast was provide to start each day. The courtyards were very relaxing with the sound of birds, flowers & trees made for such an relaxing space.Lorraine arranged cabs to & from the airport as well as seeing us off at 5am. I would definately recommend Estrellita's as the place to stay in Ajijic.

Excellent location, next to LCS and basically in the middle of what is happening in Ajijic. The owner is very accomodating and available. The rooms are colorful, clean, comfortable and filled with local art. I will definitely be back.

Just home yesterday from staying 6 nights at this lovely B&B. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. The inn is charming and impeccably clean. Our hostess, Loraine, couldn't have been nicer and the continental breakfast was always fresh and tasty. You cannot beat the price either. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

I love it at Estrellitta's. It really is that 'little gem' people speak mistily of. While I stayed there I kept thinking it miraculous that I was so completely content at a facility that lacked my very favorite mexican architectural feature - the mirador, a roof-top patio. Now home I discover Estrellita's HAS a mirador! I just missed it, which is likely a good thing as I found it hard to leave the charm and comfort of this little oasis. Had I known of the mirador, leaving might have become truly unbearable. Estrellitta's location makes it perfect for exploring the best of Ajiijic village. The malecon and lake are steps away. A two block stroll up one of the best art-shop streets takes you to the beautiful villages central plaza. To really have THE full Ajijic visit you must have breakfast at a restaurant on the plaza, al fresco, one morning. Of course breakfast is included in the very reasonable price of your stay at Estrellitta's, and they are delicious: featuring the typical incredible Ajijic fruit. On the morning you have breakfast on the plaza, If you must scrape out each dimes worth of value, ask Lorraine if you can doggie-bag your breakfast and then take it and a bottle of wine with you when you go up to the mirador to watch the sunset- another necessary Ajijic visit experience. Ajijic has some excellent dining and nightlife and the majority of it , as well as the artists row and the best massage in town, are short, picturesque walks from Estrellitta's. You can stay on the premises and enjoy two separate beautiful oudoor areas furnished so one can lounge about reading, sun bathing or conversing, The rooms are deliciously comfortable, spacious, clean and pretty. But they don't have TV's. If you're visiting Ajijic to watch television, you won't be happy here. You won't be missed! Laurie (California)

I returned home from two weeks in Ajijic where I stayed at Estrelita's for the fourth time. Lorraine is a perfect proprietor, a hostess with the mostest and has become a friend with a huge heart and a commitment to serve her guests which she does exquisitly. Estrelita's is safe, a perfect refuge and home for however long you can stay. In all probability you will not stay just once! The location is ideal, two blocks from the lake and the "malacon" boardwalk, 5 minutes from the plaza. A diamond in a setting without equal. Can't wait to go back and back again.

My son and I stayed here for one night while quickly passing through Ajijic to visit a friend. We stayed in a very large, comfortable, colorful room, and, as we had to leave very early in the morning, Lorraine (the owner) arranged for us to be served breakfast earlier than the normal hours. She also arranged taxi service for us back to Guadalajara, which was VERY helpful considering our tight schedule. Everything was first class, and I would DEFINITELY stay here again on any future visit to Ajijic.

We live in Ajijic for the better part of the year. Each year we have guests who come to visit.
They always stay at Estrellita's and love the experience as it gives them privacy for down time,
while being so centrally located that they can easily go to the Lake Chapala Society next door
or to the main shops, just down the street. Lorraine Pasini, the owner, come to Lakeside from
having successfully run a B & B in the Napa Valley in California. She is warm and welcoming
and I have never had a guest who had anything but praise for their wonderful stay, their
delightfully decorated room, their fun time meeting other guests or for their ability to spend
quality time with us AND their alone time exploring the area with Estrellita's as their base.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice, but the upstairs rooms have balconies.
