About this villa

We are taking extreme care of this property with respect to cleaning. We can also offer additional services such as grocery shopping , anything to add to a safe and enjoyable stay.


A renewed old mexican villa that dates from the 19th century, unlike anything you have stayed in before, or perhaps even have seen. The house is an architectural jewel that won first place for renovation in the entire city of Guadalajara 2015, award presented by Mayor of the city.

The price is for entire property, exclusive use, 5 bedrooms, each with large, private bath.

PLEASE NOTE that I do not rent the house for PHOTOGRAPHY or film work unless you rent the house for the minimum days. That is, please do not send an inquiry asking to use the house for a few hours or a day, thank you.



This a unique residence featuring spacious guest rooms with modern elements that provide a feeling of hip and chic to comfortably elegant.

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 in 2015 for number one restoration in the city and for its stunning architecture ( additional articles can be found online ).



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 five 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, courtyard, and backyard with pool.



My partner was born in Guadalajara and i have lived in Mexico since late 2008. Our goal is to provide as much expertise about the city that you will need.



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 limited parking options if you choose to rent a car. I strongly recommend that you use UBER for your transportation as it’s extremely affordable.

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.

Profile: Downtown Guadalajara

Profile: Downtown Guadalajara

For sightseers, Downtown Guadalajara is an aesthetic feast. Many of the city’s star attractions are located here, from the cathedral with its glinting gold spires, to the Palacio de Gobierno with its imposing Baroque façade and political murals by Jose Clemente Orozco.

Once you’ve ticked off the landmarks, there’s lots more to do. You can shop among chatty locals in the colorful San Juan de Dios Market, soak up the city’s past at the Jalisco Regional Museum, or throw yourself into Guadalajara’s tequila-drenched nightlife. Downtown might be old, but it still knows how to party.

    Gorgeous historic home

    From beginning to end we completely enjoyed our experience with booking this home for part of our honeymoon. Rob the owner is very prompt, kind and professional. Angel the keeper of the grounds was incredibly nice, informative and accommodating. The pictures listed are beautiful but you truly have to walk into this home to experience the grandeur this home has to offer. The history mixed with the exquisite interior design adds to the overall experience of living like a king in a beautiful city like Guadalajara. The amenities such as pool, laundry and a/c were huge perks with this property. Even though you are right in the heart of a busy city the house remained calm, and quiet. I would strongly suggest staying here over any hotel that GDL has to offer. I look forward to booking this house again in the future!

    A Property that We'll Remember Forever

    This property is a one-of-a-kind property, which has all the amenities a traveler would ever need. It would be ideal for family or friends' reunion. The location could not be better and our family is glad we found this gem.

    Impressive

    The house is beautiful and comfortable. It was clean and the property manager was very helpful. The location is good, but Guadalajara is huge and traffic is such that it took 30 minutes plus to get anywhere in a car. The Mexicaltzingo Mercado ( 1/2 block away) was a wonderful place for finding fresh food and good breakfasts!

    Beautiful and spacious!

    This house is in a wonderful convenient location! We really enjoyed the pool and the spacious kitchen. We had a huge storm on the evening of our arrival and had a few inconveniences but thanks to Jose he was very attentive and came to our needs as fast as he could! The city streets where flooded but that didn't stop Jose! Thank you so much Jose for making us feel comfortable and safe! We will definitely bring our friends and family back!

    Vintage Chic

    The house is picturesque and the rooms are very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool and the location was close to a taxi station, church, a nice Mercado and walking distance to a very good fish taco place called Fish Tacos La Paz. We enjoyed the convenience of having Angel - the groundskeeper - stock the fridge with a list of groceries we requested for a small fee as we were arriving late at at night. Angel was friendly and explained the history of the house to us. The owner messaged quickly and was very professional. We will definitely book again!
