Located in San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco Mexico, Casa de las Flores is the creation of a bilingual American and Mexican partnership-Stan Singleton, an artist and chef who moved to Mexico in 1978, and José Gutierrez, a native Guadalajaran, accountant and avid gardener. After travels in Africa, the Middle East, North America and Europe, they imagined a traveler's oasis, a hospitable place to relax and absorb the art and culture of Mexico. Starting with a 19th century adobe home and expanding into a neighboring property, the resident partners set out to create a bed & breakfast hotel that combined the best of both - the security, comfort and privacy of a hotel and the charm, exceptional food and personal service of a B&B.

Named one of the world's ten best places to stay in a San Francisco Chronicle readers' poll and praised in the Washington Post, Casa de las Flores is also a guidebook favorite for Guadalajara. Such public recognition is welcome, but a better measure of guest satisfaction is that people who stay once often return-typically half the guests at Casa de las Flores have come back to experience a bit of the magic of living in Mexico.

From the street, in typical Mexican fashion, Casa de las Flores reveals little of what's beyond the front door. Inside are seven spacious guest rooms designed by an award-winning architect, each with private bath. Rooms feature handcrafted furniture and regional folk art by local artisans. Windows overlook the sun-splashed central garden of vivid flowers, where guests relax by the fountain or under a palm by the outdoor fireplace.

Stan and José, along with their staff of eight, welcome guests each morning with a gourmet breakfast and willingly share local information necessary for a successful business or vacation day.

Travel to and from the airport and within the city is convenient, yet the short walk from Casa de las Flores to the center of Tlaquepaque is a destination unto itself. Tlaquepaque retains its original character as a colonial-era village famous for ceramics, mariachi music, fine food and folk art-an island of centuries-old charm amidst the modern city. Lake Chapala, the Tonala market and the distilleries at Tequila are nearby, but many travelers prefer the shopping, people- watching and music in Tlaquepaque as much as more ambitious journeys.

After enjoying the attractions of Tlaquepaque or beyond, guests of Casa de las Flores return to a peaceful residential neighborhood, where visitors gain insights into daily life. Children in their school uniforms along the morning sidewalks, evening bells from the chapel on the corner, neighbors buying supper at Doña Victoria's nightly stand-small moments that make memorable visits.
