Description from owner


Now! this summer pay the lowest prices than at any other time of the year. In June, July, and August escape the stressed out hustle and bustle of downtown city life and live on the edge......Which basically is how we live in Guanajuato Since the city is in the shape of a bowl and we live on the edge of the bowl; the mountain & city views are all around you.. For every stay for more than 3 nights, receive a free mini tour of the cities main attractions and feel like a native the first day.

We have Free parking right at your door with open access laundry facilities and your own secured private entrances..... There are hand made tiles throughout, colonial styled boveda ceiling, private bathroom with individual shower covered in handmade talavera tile, and very hot water. It is fully furnished with beautiful artisan hand carved furniture and a strong Fibre-Optic Wi-Fi signal / 20 MG's High speed Internet. It is ideal for couples and single’s who wish to stay and work on long or short term projects. It has a very comfortable queen size bed, a task desk, executive chair, futon sofa bed and study corner. The view from the private patio is not only breath taking but inspirational. Enjoy your vacation experience in a Classic Colonial Mexican environment living in the country while being only minutes away from the center of downtown. This, colonial refuge has a panoramic view of the city which is painted in all the colors of the rainbow on one side and the pristine Mount Bufa Preserve on the other. You get the best of both worlds. Our place is clean and quiet, and located in one of the safest neighborhoods in town. Speaking of safety, we're ranked among the top 3 safest cities in all of Mexico. ( Our guests have commented feeling safe while walking the streets at night)...The natural wildlife and variety of colorful native birds attract all animal lovers . Many are surprised to see at their front doors occasional free range cattle, mules, horses or goats that come from the tops of the mountain to visit. (They love raw vegetables and fruit) You can walk right out your back door and hike up to those impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa & Los Picachos, especially if you love a good place to reflect, study and meditate or even hike, run, or ride a bike , this is the perfect place with mountain trails at every turn .

The air up here is clean and unpolluted with plenty of sunshine. Guanajuato also sponsors many sporting events such as car, foot, bike and swimming races, along many other activities that will capture your attention. So you can choose to be rejuvenated and refreshed by enjoying our protected local state parks. Or take a 10-15 minute bus or taxi ride to the center of town for theaters, restaurants, museums, nightclubs, coffee houses and the list goes on and on. There is literally a revolving calendar of live music, concerts , theater performances. along with many street artists , mimes and musicians who entertain passer's by both day and night... Especially during the month of October when we celebrate our International Cervantino Festival. It's the Mardi Gras of Mexico...(Very Exciting) With hosts from all around the world, drawing travelers and curiosity seekers .

Yes Guanajuato has been considered an international treasure. It is a UNESCO city that is under constant restoration and preservation. There's only two stop lights in the whole city with cars, people on horseback , festivals and frequent encounters with parades of indigenous Indians in their ancient native costumes that date back to before the days of Cortez and Montezuma. Most of the native people have been here for generations which make them so fascinating to observe and get to know. So if you want a taste of the real Mexico look no further.... W--hich is our greatest complaint........We frequently hear at the end of our guests visits, " But I don't want to leave".................., because of this many have stayed and are now our neighbors . So beware!! You may fall in love!

During your stay you can arrange for local or more extensive sight seeing tours, hot spring outings, hikes to local forested mountains, fresh water fishing, culinary, art or cultural tours.... If you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, then take a 20 minute stroll into town passing tranquil streets, ancient plazas, callejons, and outdoor markets, that literally transport you back to the colonial days of Old Mexico. Alfredo's Market, Hamburger stand and groceries are located just a few blocks away with many nearby street side vendors selling the freshest foods at the best prices......and if you like coffee, our next door neighbor is an award winning roaster with a variety of coffees and teas that will hook you at first sip. He personally stands there with a stop watch when it's roasting time. And his famous Beso Negro .... will keep you coming back. .

Getting around

Taxis are 3-4 USD per ride . The transit system runs about every 15 minutes at 7 pesos per ride . So getting around is very easy and the cost is super affordable. Most like to walk since everything is so close by.....restaurants, markets, Bistros, coffee shops, school, nightclubs and entertainment.

Interaction with guest

We love people......And we love to interact with our guests. But, at the same time we're careful not to smother our guests with too much attention. We treat each one as individuals and look for opportunities to go out of our way to spend some social time with them depending on availability and circumstances. So we look forward to getting to know each new guest on their own terms. Don't worry about the communication. We both speak good English, Spanish and some Italian if you desire.

Response from the owner We enjoyed your visit with us and loved your baby. Our policy has always and will continue to be attentive and responsive to every need and want our of clients, which is why Our daily greeting is, "Good morning (or afternoon) is everything o.k? Is there anything we can do to make your stay more enjoyable?". Then if necessary we go to work doing whatever it takes to provide for your comfort,enjoyment and satisfaction..We are truly regretful the walk to our house was not a plus instead of a minus. It is an invigorating last few minutes to the front door. but both young and older previous guests have been happy to make the walk acknowledging our location is what makes their visit so special and totally positive, peaceful and enjoyable. But I do understand having to push a baby stroller up and over the cobble stone streets may have been a bit of a hassle. If we had been informed or knew this was a problem we would have made compensation to you or have done whatever was necessary to alleviate the problem to show our understanding and support....Thank You once again for your honest review. It has given us a new tool to make improvements for our future guests Thanks once again...........
