Guanajuato City house description

Casa Manzana Verde is here to make your vacation really unique with staying in the historic center!! Just imagine waking up to these views.... looking down on a beautiful Mexican city, steeped in history, and gazing over the mountains! Fresh air, light, nature and wonderful people all together. Note that the VRBO map is not correct! My Casa is located BELOW the Panoramica Blvd, not above it, so it is very close to the center of town ..And a 10 min walk to El Pipila statue. Book for nights or weeks, or for long-term rentals at discounted rates!! Walk a little or walk a lot... it is your choice with direct access to the front gate by bus or taxi or the Pipila funicular is a short walk away. And you can drive your car up to this beautiful casa and unload your suitcases! Cook inside, BBQ on the roof or eat out in any of the fabulous restaurants within 10-15-minute walk. READ Reviews below for comments and insights from travelers like you! Please Check Calendar and rates below! And write with any questions! I am here to make your vacation to Guanajuato special.

Guanajuato is a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site, full of culture, history, 1600 & 1700-century architecture, museums (over 14!), captivating walks, beautiful outdoor spaces, and fantastic music everywhere! And, it is the capital of the state of Guanajuato!

This home is on two levels with the master bedroom and bath on the first level along with a full kitchen, dining room and living room. Downstairs are two additional rooms with equally nice views, a second bath and the laundry area. There are 2 Queen size and 1 Double bed that are complete with luxury linens and towels. Both bathrooms have walk-in showers and, of course stunning views! With all the views there is a lot of light shinning into every room - however if you like to sleep in sometimes.... All windows have both curtains and blackout-energy efficient drapes. Very handy if you want to rest longer or just keep some of the sun out of the home.

There are 40 private steps (some a a bit uneven- but there is a cement planter edge to hold on) to my home and private deck down from the Panoramica road. For your convenience, there is parking off street at the top of the steps. However the city centre is very easy to reach by foot with various paths, and degree of steepness to choose from. One walking route takes you directly to El Pipila monument for important Guanajuato history and spectacular photo opportunities & then a 5 min funicular ride downtown. By another route you will be at Santo Café on the famous Cuesta del Tecolote & Campanero bridge in about 8 minutes!

Catering services are available upon request. My Mexican property managers, bilingual, and with a car and an SUV, if you would like to do some shopping or pick up friends! Long -term rental rates available - please ask!

              Car: Not Necessary

              You are less than a 10 minute walk to the important Guanajuato landmark & monument El Pipila. El Pipila has a museum, shops and fantastic city views plus tons of history AND a funicular ride for 15 pesos - you can easily go up (back to the house) and down the hill (right downtown to the Jardin); it is a great alternative way to get home or downtown without walking down hill. And, of course there is great cardio exercise opportunities just walking the beautiful steps and historic streets!

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About: This is a picture of me and my teenage son, who is now at the University in Colorado.

              Why Guanajuato City:
              A fabulous city, warm, friendly people, and so much to see, experience and hear! There isn't that hectic feeling that you get in resort towns. And, in this city you can walk anywhere and everywhere so there is no need to rent a car to have a wonderful time. The food is just wonderful from the Mercado Hidalgo (oh! the fresh fruit!) to the fancy restaurants and all the places to go out at night for music or just to relax. These are just some of the reasons I fell in love with Guanajuato and its citizens. Also a great city to practice your español.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              A great vacation in a wonderful climate! Views that a freeing!! You do not have to drive to enjoy all the sights and sounds of this historic city.
