A renewed old mexican villa that dates from the 19th century. The house is an architectural jewel, a unique residence featuring spacious guest rooms with modern elements that provide a feeling of hip and chic to elegant and antique.
***Please note that pricing is based on 2 bedroom rental, 4 people. For the 3rd bedroom please add $60/night. A 4th bedroom also available at additional cost depending on length of stay. Additional details in house rules section. Regardless of number of rooms reserved , you will have the house to yourself. That is, it is not being shared. With advanced notice, we maybe able to accommodate a 5th bedroom.
Extensive renovations have been made to plumbing and electrical along with new, private bathrooms containing granite counter tops. Originally everything was built around the center courtyard and that's how it appears today, providing an interior view you have unlikely seen in any other house. Palacete is one of Guadalajara's premier residences, recognized with an historical plaque on the outside sidewalk for its stunning architecture. Since pictures were taken, additional improvements have been made.
The neighborhood is blue collar with repair shops but very much alive and once inside the house, it is quiet and peaceful. Just relax after your daily adventures and enjoy the pool or a cocktail. The property has four available bedrooms each with private, modern baths, a beautiful kitchen, and of course, the pool. Even if you are traveling with a group, the house offers enough space, ranging from the separated kitchen to the dining area, to the central courtyard, offering ample privacy.
You will have the ENITRE PROPERTY TO YOURSELF but someone is always available if you need anything. This could range from restaurant advice to providing information for shopping or any other detail pertaining to the city or mexican culture. My partner was born in the city and i have lived since late 2008. If you have any questions, just ask.
Palacete is located near downtown and other areas such as chapultepec where you will find nightlife and restaurants ranging from high-energy to more relaxed. There is a taxi stand just around the corner from the house, just in front of the mexicaltzingo church, and parking options if you choose to rent a car.
If you are not familiar with the city, you will find that it has a young and vibrant feeling where you can meet interesting locals and foreigners that will show you a warm smile, making your stay in guadalajara a cultural event.
The climate is typically spring-like, never humid, but almost always sunny. If you live in mexico or just visiting, the villa will offer a safe and authentic experience.
