Guest Book for Ajijic Angel Flores Guest House #5
This is by far the most relaxing place we have ever stayed in. The grounds are absoulty beautiful-The outdoor Kitchen has everything you need to cook and is very clean- the rooms are great-plenty of hot water for the shower. The host Skip and Felipe are the best around. Very helpful and just all around great people. Skip can tell you anything you need to know about relocating to the Ajijic area. We took a tour with Felipe to Guadalajara and went to places we would have never known about on our own- Felipe took great care to make sure we were seeing what we wanted to see. Words just cant describe what a great place this is to stay with the best host ever. A+++++++++ if you dont stay here you are making a big mistake! Skip and Felipe we hope to return soon!
If you don't already know, Ajijic is a small village that retains much of the flavor of old Mexico. We were there for the holiday season and there was much celebration going on. But, while close enough to easily walk to everything Ajijic has to offer, when you get back to the Angel Flores Guest House, you are surrounded by quiet, peaceful gardens. The pictures do not do it justice! Skip has been retired there since 1995 and has a wealth of information for anyone considering this as a retirement destination. Felipe is Mexican with excellent English who will give you yet another perspective on Ajijic and beyond. They are both incredible treasures who not only inform, but welcome you as a friend. More helpful, warm and congenial hosts could not be found anywhere. We would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to Ajijic. We feel as though we made two friends who we will remain in touch with after we retire and move to the Lake Chapala area.
We found Angel Flores Guest House when my husband was looking for some place reasonable to stay in the Ajijic/Chapala area. After looking at the pictures on their website, we decided to give the place a try. I'm so glad we did. The guest house is an oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of busy Ajijic. The garden is more beautiful than it appears on the website (and that's going some!). Skip, the proprietor, has finished the outdoor kitchen, which we, along with the other guests enjoyed on a daily basis. There is even a waterfall and pond feature that should be finished in the next week or so. We were there for the beginning of it. Skip was knowledgeable about the surrounding area and gave us a lot of sound recommendations for things to do in Ajijic and Chapala. Although the rooms are a little on the small side, they are very comfortable and clean. We spent very little time in the room, anyway, preferring to visit with the other guests and Skip and his friend Felipe outside on the covered terrace. We even had a movie and popcorn night. Angel Flores is centrally located in Ajijic and we were able to walk almost everywhere from there, even to the Walmart! It was a great experience and we will absolutely return.
Dear Skip. I like to thank you for all the attentions I receive from you while I stayed in one of the rooms of your property. I am looking forward to my next vacation in Ajijic where I had a wonderful time, especially the piece of mine of having the rental car inside the property where it was safe. Your place is so nice, all the plants and flowers blooming and transpiring piece and a beautiful sense of well being all around the place. And to top it all your personal attention to the needs of your guests makes me feel like I was at home. Thanks again. Your friend Roberto Valdivieso
Ron, we enjoyed having you stay with us and your use of words make all the hard work creating Angel Flores Guest House worth it. Looking forward to your return.
I'd never seen an oasis before, but from the moment the doors opened on Angel Flores #5 I knew I had found one. The flowers, the trees, the cobbled walkways all welcomed me. The love and effort put into everything here was apparent. The 400 thread count Egyptian cottom bedsheets and the over sized belightful pillows and blankets, all say "be comfortable, feel at ease." The same is echoed by the hospitality, Skip and Felipe, the other guests, the common areas with all the nooks and crannies... the well equipped kitchen, the multi-levels of conversation area, places for quietly enjoying a good book, a true oasis. Skip, your imaginaion, your creativity, and your charm have all combined to make staying with you a real pleasure. Thank you, Dr. Ron
Thank you Bridget for your comment
Dear Skip & Felipe, I must tell you how much I enjoyed staying in your beautiful guest house. As a single woman, I found myself very relaxed and at ease because your property is so secure. Thank you for also keeping everything immaculately clean and comfortable. I will be back very soon. Bridget
