Robin and Henry Fremont purchased their Los Ayala vacation home in 2006, and have been enjoying their winters here ever since, along with their seventeen year old faithful dog, Bear. Summers are spent at McPhee Lake in north-central Saskatchewan where they enjoy visiting with friends and family, including four children, and two grandchildren.
Robin and Henry chose Los Ayala as their winter vacation escape for many reasons. They say that they were captivated by the friendly people, the relaxed lifestyle; the warm, sunny climate and the consistently idyllic temperatures of the winter and spring season; the beautiful swimming beach, with its’ quaint palapa restaurants; the surrounding ridiculously luxuriant scenery in Los Ayala, framed by the foothills of the majestic Sierra Vallejo Mountains.
One of their favourite restaurants in Los Ayala is Pikiko’s and one of their favorite times in Los Ayala are (believe it or not) Christmas and Easter! They love the crowds of people strolling about, the big family gatherings on the beach, and the roaming musicians.
The Fremont’s can be seen during the early morning hours walking their dog, Bear, in and around Los Ayala. Henry enjoys golfing twice a week, while Robin enjoys taking classes in stained glass and Spanish lessons. Both Robin and Henry, appreciate how close Los Ayala is to both Guayabitos and La Penita, saying it is very handy, especially since they try to shop locally as much as possible.
Having visited many different areas in Mexico, Robin and Henry are thrilled to be able to call Los Ayala, home!
How Robin & Henry ended up owning a Vacation Home in Los Ayala…
For twenty some some years Robin and Henry, declared a strong desire to retire to Mexico. Friends of theirs from Saskatchewan, Bob and Linda Gibbs, own a vacation rental property called “Casita de la Penita” where Henry & Robin were married seven years ago!
During their stay in La Penita they fell in love with the area, and returned the following year and stayed in Rincon de Guaybitos. During their stay they started seriously looking for property in the Jaltemba Bay area. Their main criteria for their place in the sun, was that their vacation home needed to have at least 2 bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms, with a basic price point in mind.
When Robin and Henry came across their Los Ayala home, they liked its location, the price was right, and since it had 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms, they considered it a bonus!
The fact that their home had never been lived in gave them the opportunity to choose colors and furnishings, to their taste. Since then, they have added on a carport, an upper deck and bodega, and lots of flora and fauna in their yard, which they enjoy immensely.
