One of the few original colonial homes (built in 1792) available for rent. The house is well appointed with colonial furniture, original artwork, high wood-beam ceilings, incredible 4 foot thick adobe walls, a modern kitchen with adjoining formal dining room. Featuring stunning views from a lovely covered veranda of Central Guanajuato and an intimate Central Courtyard with Pool, and open air Fireplace, Casa del Limon provides our guests with an enchanting, relaxing and romantic Guanajuato experience.

The home was carefully restored with the 2 bedrooms, living & dining rooms all opening up to the private courtyard, pool and limon tree. The kitchen is gourmet and fully stocked. The living room spacious with adjoining dayroom/office, and the roof-top terrace, with its quaint sunroom offers stunning views of the San Francisco Church, Guanajuato's Historic Center, and the beautiful surrounding Mountains.

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are a Mexican/Italian couple who travel throughout the world, with homes in San Francisco, Venice & Northern Italy, and in lovely Guanajuato! We travel often with our 2 gorgeous labrador retrievers, Scooby and Angelica..

Why Guanajuato City:
We love Guanajuato for its European style charm and rich Mexican Culture, and we are half-way home here! The home dates to 1792 and is one of the few standing residential dwellings built in the colonial times: most other colonial building in the city are commercial or official buildings. The original house gave us the opportunity to create something unique. The whole house has been restored to its original splendor using hand made furniture and local art. We selected this house after a search that lasted 10 years because it is the only house in the centro which has multiple open spaces: the patio is divided in two: the pool are and the fireplace area, the second floor has three terraces (one is a gigantic service terrace fir hanging clothes and a continuation of the rooftop garden ) aand a spacious veranda where we entertain our guests with stunning views . All other houses in the centro offer only sun baked rooftops, our patio is 100% private and offers the opportunity of spending 100% of the time outside

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to soak in our courtyard pool in the evenings, cook and enjoy gourmet meals in our fabulous kitchen, relax on our roof-top terrace, explore local art exhibits, and dine occasionally in cozy Guanajuato restaurants so close to Casa del Limon.
