Casa de La Paz consists of two levels Planta Baja y Planta Alta each level is an independent home.
They can be rented separately or together to accommodate larger parties. (Las dos planta se rentan separadas con tarifas para cada planta separadas. Las tarifas son la misma cantidad para cada planta).
The homes are situated in the Paseo de La Presa neighborhood which is one of the most desirable areas to live in Guanajuato. The homes are located on one of the hundreds of callejones in Guanajuato, and yes you have to climb some stairs. However why come to Guanajuato if you don't expect to climb stairs. That is part of the magic of this beautiful city, and what better way to immerse yourself in real callejon living while you are here. You can strike up conversations, exchange greetings with the neighbors, but know you have a very comfortable place when you get home. You will have at your disposable two very spacious homes, that are fully stocked with the best linens, pillow top bedding, and all the necessary utensils in the kitchens to make any cook/chef happy. The homes also have at their disposal a rooftop terrace that has 180 degree views of the Picachos Mountains and La Bufa as they are called by the local people. There is a half bath, patio cover, and plenty of patio furniture to entertain friends or large parties from either house or both. The pictures attached show how spectacular the views are from the terrace, and you will not be disappointed. Year round spring like weather makes it a complete joy to sit up on the terrace to read, have a glass of wine, entertain friends, or just sleep if you wish. There is also a smaller patio that is more secluded next to the first level which has a native cactus garden. This is another good place to read, meditate, or have a drink.
UPPER LEVEL (PLANTA ALTA)
This level is beautifully appointed with 2 big bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a full bathroom and bedroom has a king size pillow top bed. The second bedroom has a queen size pillow top bed of superior quality. After spending long days exploring the callejones of Guanajuato you will come home to rest on a very comfortable bed. Top quality satin sheets, and pillows to match come with each bed. This level is airy and with more views. Both bedrooms are beautifully decorated with nights stands, and ceiling fans.
The living room has leather couches, and all the necessary tables. An entertainment cabinet has a 32" TV that has basic cable to watch local and international news and programming. A DVD player is also available if you want to bring your movies from home for yourself or your children. The house has wireless internet so bring your laptop, tablet or cell phone to connect to Wifi. The second living room is separate from the main living room which is another comfortable seating area to enjoy. There is a small patio at the end of this level which is another place just to relax. There are two ceiling fans in these living rooms, but chances are you will not need them to be comfortable.
The kitchen has a microwave, coffeemaker, blender, toaster, MABE refigerator, and MABE stove, and a top of the line MABE washer and dryer center to take care of all your laundry needs inside the house even during the rainy season. Concrete and talavera countertops are present in this level. Top quality dinnerware, and silverware abound in the kitchen to satisfy even the most discriminating cook/chef. All appliances are completely new.
Both levels have access to the rooftop terrace if you really want that open airy feeling. Each level has a master suite with full bathroom, and king bed, and the second bedroom has a queen bed. All the linens, and pillows are of equal quality, and should make for a great nights rest.
The houses are about a 5 minute walk from Embajadoras, and about 10 minutes to the center of town or the Jardin de Union. Most times it will take longer to get to the center of town just because you will stop and take pictures, get ice cream on the street, walk into a coffee shop along the way, or smell the fresh pastries cooking around the next corner and stop. Guanajuato is such a romantic place with so many things to see and do, and nooks and crannies to go into. However at the end of the day after exploring Guanajuato you will love coming home. You can go up to the terraza with a glass of your favorite wine, and if you are lucky enough to be here during the full moon you will feel like you can reach out and grab it....Read more
CASA DE LA PAZ-UPPER LEVEL (PLANTA ALTA) Guanajuato, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast, Mexico
Additional Location Information
Casa de La Paz Planta Baja is located on Callejon Zaragosa in the Presa neighborhood. Very secure, well lit area with many things to do close by. The home is located in a little side callejon kind of like a cul-de-sac with only four homes tucked away in a very private area. You can walk up to Presa lake, and walk through the beautiful Florencio Antonillo park on your way to Presa lake. You can go right past Presa lake and hike up the Picachos mountains if you so wish. You can walk towards downtown to Centro, and walk through Embajadoras, then on through the cobblestone streets to Centro. Buses can pick you up at the bottom of Callejon Zaragosa, and will travel all the way through downtown, and up to the Mercado Hidalgo if you wish to go there . You can get of the bus at any point of interest you wish to visit. Going to the Jardin de Union, you can visit Plaza de La Paz and its cathedral, the Teatro Juarez and watch the street performers entertain the crowds. You can visit the University of Guanajuato, the Alhondiga or Diego Rivera Museum. From the Jardin de Union you can take the tramway up to the Pipila Monument, where you will view the city of Guanajuato below in all its vibrant colors. Make sure you take your camera if you go anywhere, as the photo ops will certainly abound. If you are traveling to Guanajuato by car parking can be found at the entrance to our callejon, but at times it is difficult. If you let us know if you are arriving by car we can reserve a spot for your car using one of our own cars. The Hotel Independencia is at the bottom entrance to Callejon Zaragosa, and this is a perfect place for our property managers to meet and greet you upon your arrival. I could write about things to do in GTO, but there is not enough space on this page to do so. Besides the best part of all this is how you experience, and discover Guanajuato in your own way. You will relive those experiences back home knowing you discovered many things just walking around. Hopefully you will write us back and let us know you enjoyed your stay in our home, and experienced and enjoyed Guanajuato as much as we do

Left on 05/05/2014 for a stay in April 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed May 5, 2014Stayed Apr 2014
I was just a recent guest of Casa de la Paz, and I was beyond pleased with my stay. My fiancé and I are well seasoned travelers and have stayed in many hotels and rental properties in and outside of the U.S. and Casa de la Paz did not disappoint! The accommodations of Cdlp were up to par with the nicest of hotels and rentals in the states! We stayed on the upper level, which was very spacious and decorated beautifully. The location of Cdlp was close enough to walk just about anywhere, but far enough away to enjoy a quiet evening in. The one evening we decided to venture out and experience GTO nightlife, we had no problem getting a cab to and from Cdlp. Our favorite part about Cdlp was the rooftop Terraza! We loved spending our evenings on the terraza with a glass of wine and completely unobstructed views of GTO! Absolutely breathe taking! Two days was simply not enough in this lovely place! Thank you Jorge for offering travelers such an amazing place to stay! We will be back soon!
We thank you for the very nice review to your stay in Casa de LaPaz. You covered every area of the house that we want future guests to know about the house, and for that we are very appreciative. Hopefully when you return to GTO you will consider Casa de LaPaz for you vacation or business needs while you are here. It was a pleasure having you, and hope to see you again soon. All the Best Jorge Zamora
Para nuestros huespedes de el futuro voy a traducir los comentarios de la Senorita Miller.
Yo fui huespede en Casa De LaPaz y me fui muy satisfecha con todo. Mi novio y yo hemos viajado por todas partes de los Estados Unidos y por partes estranjeras y Casa De LaPaz fue todo y mucho mas de lo que nosotros esperabamos. En comparasion de lo que Casa De LaPaz ofrecia era como de los mejores hoteles en otras partes. Los quedamos en la Planta Alta y estaba muy espacios y decorada bien bonita. Estaba cercas de todo y no batallamos nada para conseguir un taxi si lo necesitavamos. Las vistas de la Terraza sobre la cuidad estan preciosas. Pasamos las dos tardes tomando vino y pasando un buen tiempo ayi. Esteslugar estaba bien bonito, y dos dias lamentablemente no fueron suficientes. Gracias a Jorge por aber ofrecido un lugar tan bonito. Regresamos pronto.
