“LOVED this UNIQUE Home, Perfect Location, Wonderful Experience!”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2018

This is a wonderful, delightful, quirky, fantastic, and unique place! I hated to leave. I can't wait to go back. I savored every moment in this place: The Living Room's 5 sets of french doors overlooking the beautiful plaza, and view to the colorful hillside of houses, and the University and Guadalupe Church; the fabulous oasis of the peristyle and the roof top patios; the fully equipped kitchen, a lot of space to spread out in, the steady supply of purified water in ceramic dispensers through-out the house; Lorena, Lorena, Lorena!!!! with whom we made a great outing to the forested hillsides, the interesting Valenciana Mine, and Santa Rosa for a yummy breakfast and the most beautiful affordable pottery I have ever seen! In my new favorite city of Guanajuato, I loved exploring the historic sights from the BEST location! We visited many many plazas, and even though I was still recovering from a groin pull, I walked up to Piplia -- not to be missed during the clarity of late afternoon! And by the way, that same groin pull did not prevent this 57 year old from happily enduring the many stairs of La Malguena. Yes, bring ear plugs for the joyous atmosphere outside. I slept like a baby in a very comfortable king size bed. The other is a queen size, comfortable, and on the same level as the living area, dining area, kitchen, and the smaller full bath with standing shower. The other bath on third level, with master / king size bed, is much larger. I loved the restaurants MIDI, Truca 7, Mestizo, the ice cream and desert place just behind the house, and the market where it was fun to pick up fresh veggies, and meats for cooking at "home". Much love to Maria for sharing her home.

“Living the Good Life”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2013

This home is as spectacular as it looks in the pictures. If you like design, art, architecture , you'll fall in love with this place. It's location on San Fernando plaza, right in the middle of town, enabled us to take part nightly, in all the cultural richness that Guanajuato has to offer. This town is an undiscovered gem, and Lorena and Sote helped us make the most of it.

“Guanajuato at it's best”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2011

My husband and I have stayed in this beautiful casa twice; we just returned home October 10, 2011. We are reluctantly writing our review only because we wish we could keep this secret to ourselves. Once in awhile you find a treasure and wish it were not revealed. This house on the Plaza is a gem. Even if you do nothing else but sit in front of the veranda and watch the people strolling, listen to the local musicians, smell the delicious odors wafting up through open doors from restaurants below you would have a beautiful experience of Guanajuato.

“A magical spot in Guanjuato”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2010

Fabulous place in a wonderful city. An artistically pleasing, comfortable home is the very heart of this fascinating an unbelievalbe value. Enough rooms and terraces for six to be comfortable. Full kitchen and close to many markets and eating options. Can't say enough positive.

“Perfect place in Plaza San Fernando”

Reviewed 4 Nov 2010

Maria and Gordon's home possesses a rare understated sense of beauty and a generous spirit of hospitality. From our arrival meeting Lorena and Sote (and getting the grand tour of the house and great tips of things to do during our stay), through to the beautiful touches of flowers, fruit and supplies, to the amazing location in Plaza San Fernando, and the many vistas the house offers (particularly the roof top garden and its breath-taking view of Guanajuato). Their home was a precious gem during a month spent enjoying the many delights of Mexico. My only regret about our stay - we only had three nights here, a week minimum would be better so you can relax and enjoy the delights of both the town and this divine home!

“Magical surroundings in vibrant location”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2010

We loved Malaguena!! The house itself was enchanting! Lorena gave us a wonderful introduction to the place along with some of the history which made our stay even more interesting. Sote provided excellent cleaning services and we never even knew she was there. When we ran out of hot water, Lorena had it fixed immediately. The location is excellent. We love being in the heart of Plaza San Fernando, a vibrant plaza full of restaurants and entertainment. The interesting thing is that although the house is right smack on the Plaza where a lot is going on, it is very quiet inside the house. So you have the best of both worlds. Fabulous place!!

“Magical Malaguena”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2009

We had the good luck to stay in this house for 2 whole weeks. Lorena, the property manager met us exactly according to plan at the fountain on the Plaza San Fernando. She gave us a very thorough orientation to the house. The house exceeded our expectations. Everything we needed was supplied - the kitched was stocked with the essentials - like coffee, orange juice - a beautiful bowl of fresh fruit - there was even beer in the fridge. The location of the house is perfect - walking distance to pretty much everywhere we wanted to go. The Plaza San Fernando is probably the most picturesque plaza in a town of one beautiful plaza after another. Sote, the housekeeper/gardiner was wonderful... I wish I could have brought her home with me! The house has a lot of stairs and is definitely not appropriate for elderly folks or for toddlers. But if you are physically fit and looking for an experience where you can really feel like you are part of the community the Casa Malaguena is a great choice.

“The Windows of Guanajuato”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2009

We stayed for a week in Maria & Gordon's home to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. The location of La Malaguena right on Plaza de San Fernando was stunning. The house itself has so many interesting points of view but the highlight is sitting right in front of the window/balcony and watching the happenings right on the Plaza. The experience is a feast for the senses. Watching old, young, families, enjoying the bright colors, listening to spontaneous music and singing; smelling the heavenly aromas from the local restaurants. We loved it all and will definitely return to this unique home.
