Guanajuato City house description
Gorgeous Casa Verde on Caracol is a newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 2 bath view home with a 2 bedroom complete apartment right in the Historic City Center of beautiful Guanajuato. We are steps from picturesque Potrero and lovely Tecolote, and the Escuela Mexicana, an excellent Spanish Language school, with the Jardin Union, Teatro Juarez and all of the sites of this UNESCO World Heritage town just minutes away. With a view of Central Guanajuato and being directly in it provides our guests with an enchanting Guanajuato experience; we look forward to welcoming you to Casa Verde.
In addition to a fabulous location - a 5 minute walk not only to but back from the Jardin - the house is ample and comfortable, with classic charm and modern amenities. We are within minutes of 3 theaters, countless restaurants and bars, 6 ancient churches, hundreds of shops, 2 large outdoor markets and all of the vital, glorious street life and history that makes Guanajuato so special. Our terrace is not a speck on the roof, it is a large 500 square foot outdoor living and entertainment space with stunning views and a full bathroom, built-in grill and wet-bar. It adjoins a huge living room with two walls of arched windows, a large comfortable sitting area with couches, a card/game table, and wireless internet. This room also works great as an office.
Downstairs, on the Main Home middle floor, is a lovely modern kitchen with everything a gourmet cook will need, a large dining room and a sweet sitting nook with a beautiful view overlooking the San Francisco Church. There is a full bath and three large bedrooms: one with a queen, one with a double, and one with two twin beds. Each room has built-in closets and dressers, as well as suitcase storage. With high quality mattresses and down comforters we assure your cozy slumber, even on our cool mountain nights.
On the first floor is a complete apartment with a spacious living room with work station, a huge gallery style balcony, another large full bath, and two more bedrooms - one with a twin, and one with a double bed. The same luxurious bedding awaits. There is a nice kitchen with a breakfast nook. The house can be rented as two units: a 2 bedroom apartment on one floor, and a two story, three bedroom home above. Of course, it is also available as a 5 bedroom house. Please inquire by e-mail about rates for different configurations. Perfect for families, friends & small groups.
All of the bathrooms and plumbing have been newly re-built, and the rental includes maid service once a week, all utilities, gas, as well as greeting/concierge service and professional property management. Parking is available nearby, daily or monthly. The house is approachable by car (200 yards away), but not accessible by car. Parking is an additional expense, available in nearby parking garages.
We love the warmth and beauty of Guanajuato, and its people. The geography, history, rich culture and inhabitants, combine to create one of the world's truly special cities. Obviously, we love Guanajuato! We hope you will to. Casa Verde is a wonderful home-base from which to explore this city of endless treasures. If you’ve been, you know it is not possible to exagerate Guanajuato's unique charms; if you haven’t been yet, you will not regret getting to know this vibrant, fascinating and relaxing city.
We look forward to welcoming you to spectacular Casa & Apartment Verde on Caracol! Kevin & Alex

GREAT PLACE TO STAY
GREAT PLACE TO STAY
We are 3 couples in our 60's (Canadian), our first time in Guanajuato and stayed at Casa Verde for 2 weeks...loved every minute of it...the house is very comfortable and clean and definitely roomy enough for us.The rooftop terrace is very nice, the location to Centro is perfect and the short walk up to the house a nice workout.Words can't express how much we liked Guanajuato....it is more of a feeling. We hired a driver to show us the surrounding area and towns. On a return trip we would for sure stay at Casa Verde.

Owner response: We are so glad you had a great time. You seem to have tapped into the same feeling the makes us love Guanajuato so much. I only wish we could be there more ourselves!
We have been visiting Guanajuato for the past 5 years and have stayed in the apartment below the main house for last 2. We have very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return each summer. The apartment is comfortable with a lovely balcony overlooking the city. The little stove top is perfect for cooking small meals. The living room is spacious and comfortable. It is very convenient to the central historical area. The apartment is in a safe area and I often walk home alone very late in the evening. The city really grows on you with each visit.

Great house in perfect location.
Great house in perfect location.
I spent an amazing 6 weeks in this house and would happily go back again. The owners and house manager were always very helpful and have provided an accurate description of the house. The house could not be better located being just 3 mins walk to Teatro Juarez in the centre of town and only 5 mins run (10 mins walk) up to El Pipila and the panoramica overlooking the city. There are a host of bars, clubs, cafes and restaurants all within 5 minutes walk. The bedrooms are large and comfortable, the kitchen has everything you could need and the dinning area has a nice view of the city. But the terrace is AMAZING! Its a perfect area to relax in the sun, read a book, have a BBQ or host a party. My Mexican and foreign friends alike were all envious of my amazing terraza! All in all a highly enjoyable experience and I look forward to staying again in the future. Thanks.

this house is marvelous
this house is marvelous
We spent half of July 2011 in this house - four adults and three children - and it was completely great. It's a beautifully airy space with an upper level perfect for grilling and hangng out, and a lovely view of the city. We have lived in Guanajuato for two years and have been back many times and this is one of the very nicest houses we have been in. It is two blocks from the Teatro Juarez. One Sunday afternoon we had a leak in the kitchen sink and the handyman was there within half an hou and fixed it right away. We will definitely rent it again if we can.

Great place to stay.
Great place to stay.
My wife and I spent two months in the lower apartment of Casa Verde. We loved walking only two blocks to the central square. The location is fabulous. The apartment is spacious and had everything we needed plus microwave. James Pyle made us feel welcome and went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable. The rental is cleaned weekly which was another plus. We highly recommend Casa Verde to anyone who wants a charming place to live with an awesome location and views to spare.

Just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home in Guanajuato. We absolutely fell in love with the city, and look forward to returning soon. The location of Casa Verde just couldn't be better. We walked out the door and were instantly in the heart of things, a real plus with two small children. And yet, due to the walk-streets, we were isolated from the noise of traffic. It was fabulous to have three full bedrooms (with closing doors), which allowed us to actually sleep through the night (a rarity with small children). We also loved the upstairs patio and sound system - the kids had dance parties every afternoon! Thanks too to your rental manager James, who was extremely accommodating and helpful to us. Thank you James! He helped welcome us to the city, and made sure that we were comfortable throughout. We will be passing along your information to our friends here in San Pancho, who have already heard all about incredible Guanajuato. Thanks again.

can't wait to go back to Casa Verde
can't wait to go back to Casa Verde
My husband and I stayed in Casa Verde along with our 4 year old daughter. The house is immaculate and very well-appointed. Super comfortable beds, great storage space and modern baths and kitchen. The kitchen has a good-sized fridge and an oven (almost impossible to find in GTO). The views are mesmerizing in both the day and night. I found myself just standing and staring from the terrace or out of the windows. The "climb" to get to Casa Verde was minimal, compared to other locations in the city. Just a few minutes' walk from Cafe Santo, a yummy creperie and a sweet little plaza (San Francisco) helps make this house a gem. We didn't take any language classes at the language school that is just around the corner, but we did take a series of cooking classes. I highly recommend looking into classes at the language school there. We also loved the fact that the house is very centrally located, but is totally insulated from any traffic noise. One of our favorite afternoon activities was to walk down to the main Jardin through the pedestrian zone and watch the mariachi bands get started for the night. The Jardin is less than 5 minutes from Case Verde. We can't wait to go back and are hoping to stay for a few months on our next visit.

Why the Owner Chose Guanajuato City:
We simply fell in love with the city and the pace of life in this culture.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the pedestrian lifestyle in the city, as well as the great views due to the incredible architecture and the steep terrain. Casa Verde on Caracol has a wonderful roof-top view terrace looking out over the city center, and we are a short walk down Potrero, the Escuela Mexicana callejon, into the city center. Fabulous access and views are highlights here. We also have a fabulous entertainment room with a full bathroom on the terrace. The home itself also captures gorgeous views of the San Francisco Church and Central Guanajuato!
