About Randy Greene

My husband Andrew and I retired a few years ago and fell in love with the wonderful community of Ajijic. We enjoy the outside living and terrific friendly people. We prefer to leave the driving to others so a walkable location in town is perfect for us. We are fortunate to have an apartment in NYC, a country home on the Hudson River 2 hours north of NYC and now a beautiful mexican home.

I was a NYC school teacher for 30 years and Andrew was in real estate banking and a private consultant. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Randy Greene purchased this villa in 2009

Why Randy Greene chose Ajijic

This house is quite unique, not only due to it's location in the village which contains restaurants, stores and financial services but also because it's only one block from the largest lake in Mexico. Although there is a circular driveway with two automatic garage doors, a car is not necessary.A taxi stand is only a few blocks from the house although drivers will pick you up right in front of the house if you call in advance.The local bus, 7 pesos, is 1 block away going towards the town of Chapala, the Wednesday market and many shops and restaurants, including Wal-Mart.

We just completed an entire paint job, in and outside although with the construction of a mirador to get sunset,lake and mountain views. This is located right outside of the kitchen door for easy access.

What makes this villa unique

Immaculate home with beautiful artwork. Huge fully equipped gourmet kitchen with center counter .


Mirador with sunset and lake views

Guestbook comments from the manager

The location, the setting,the decor was all great. The house and gardens are very relaxing.The kitchen has every thing you would need including a blender.The house is located on a quiet street 1 block from the lake and a few blocks from fabulous restaurants. I traveled with my 20 year old son and his friend and we were all completely taken with this home, the area and the people. I am hoping I can stay again.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this house. Beautiful furnishings and lovely art work. Odd layout but very doable. We spent most of our time outside. The outside area is very comfortable with lots of seating and dining options. The built in grill was nice. The pool is heated with a solar cover and was a perfect temperature. I wish I had brought a float! The yard was very private with beautiful bougainvillea lining the fence and the tallest cypress trees (pencil pines) I’ve ever seen. The front entrance with the double entrance and pull through driveway was really nice. The location was perfect, located on a very quiet street, two blocks from the Malecon, perfect for a morning stroll.

The kitchen was very well stocked. It had a 6 burner stove with a griddle, oven, microwave, separate convection oven and a toaster oven. Blender, food processor, coffee maker, nice new dishwasher, plus lots more. A very eclectic mix of cooking utensils and sharp knives with sharpeners. Everything we needed!

The owner and manager of the house were very helpful but we really didn’t need them because of the very detailed instruction book.

I would stay here again!!

Great house in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming house in an excellent location, walkable to everything. The property is beautiful with fruit trees, palms, orchids, and roses. The description of the property is accurate and the property is clean and well maintained. The owner was great to deal with. We would definitely recommend this property as the place to stay in Ajijic. Don't miss the Wednesday tianguis (farmers market). Try M & J Pizza at Donato Guerra #17. Fun atmosphere & great pizza.

Loved Our Stay

July 31, 2017

Just completed a wonderful two month vacation at this spacious and delightful compound/hacienda in Ajijic. Enjoyed its great indoor-outdoor layout, wonderful use of color, amazing eclectic decor, comfortable furniture, beautiful grounds, and a great location close to all that Ajijic has to offer.

This was such a heartwarming home to be in. Especially appreciated the wonderful artifacts that were abundantly displayed throughout, adding so much to its unique Mexican flavor. For those who love to cook, you'll find the kitchen supplied with every utensil you could possibly need. However, if you'd rather not cook, like me, there are plenty of fine restaurants within walking distance.

Perfect-Look no further

  • 5 of 5

The Home--Perfect. We felt at home the minute we walked in the door; the artwork, the furniture, the bedrooms and bathrooms all give the feel of a very welcoming place to spend a relaxing visit in Ajijic. The kitchen has any and every culinary instrument you could ever want or need for meal preparation. And, the patio and gardens are unbelievable! Once again, the furniture, the artwork, the plants and fountains are very relaxing and accommodating.

The Location--Perfect. Located on a quiet street about 1/2 block from the lake and just a couple of blocks from the center of Ajijic, we never felt the need for a car; our strolls about town became part of our daily ritual.

The Owner--Perfect. Randy was in constant communication with us from the time we expressed interest in the property, throughout our stay and even after our return. No question went unanswered, no request unmet.

In short, if you are looking for a perfect property for a visit to Ajijic, look no further, you've found it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for that glorious review. We agree with you. We love living in the village close enough, yet far enough away to enjoy the quiet in the backyard, the close proximate to tjhe lake, and all the amenities Ajijic village has to offer. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
