Property description

Casa Sierra Roja is centrally located just 3 minutes by foot to the tree-lined Embajadoras area and market and 15 minutes by foot to Jardín de la Unión. It is nestled in a family-oriented neighborhood off a well-lit callejón that is just 39 steps from the main street below. Amazingly, if you hike the 400+ steps to reach the top of the callejón, you only have to walk another 10 minutes to reach the base of the Bufa, a protected area where there are numerous hikes and ample opportunities for scrambling and rock climbing.

Casa Sierra Roja is spacious and well-suited for couples or a family. Kids and pets are welcome. One highlight is the Master suite on the second floor with a king-size bed, vaulted ceiling and covered balcony with glass doors and comfortable seating for two. From the balcony, there is an impressive view of the sierra, which turns a dramatic red shade at sunset.

Another star feature is the roof-top terrace with both open-air and covered areas, where you will enjoy splendid views of the city and surrounding geological wonders. From the terrace, you can plug in your computer or cook dinner on the full-size BBQ.

The lower level of Casa Sierra Roja opens onto an shaded patio with a lime tree that has organic limes for picking year-round. The quaint Mexican-style kitchen and connected dining room include full amenities.

There is a foyer with seating and cozy living room areas on both levels for avid readers looking for a good corner to curl up with a book!

The house can comfortably sleep from 2 to 7 people. In addition to the Master suite, there are two bedrooms on the second floor: one with a single bed and balcony and another with two singles. There is another bedroom with a double bed on the first floor. There are 3 full bathrooms: 1 on the first floor and 2 on the second floor (including Master Suite bathroom).

Other features of Casa Sierra Roja include a full-size automatic washing machine and high-speed wireless Internet service. For families with young children, there are gated areas to control play and child-safe balconies. Equipment for babies and small children is available upon request (collapsible crib, changing table, stroller, etc.)

A once-a-week cleaning is included and additional cleaning services are available at a reasonable price.

We are certain that guests will immediately feel at home in Casa Sierra Roja, which serves as a perfect base for exploring the magic colonial city of Guanajuato and the stunning natural areas that border the city. As bilingual and bi-cultural hosts, we are available to answer questions about the local area and culture. We want to make your stay in Mexico as comfortable and carefree as possible.

Casa Sierra Roja is located on Callejón de Zaragoza, 40 steps up from the main street Paseo de la Presa. It is a 3-minute walk to the Mercado-Jardín Embajadoras and a 15 minute walk to the heart of the city (The Juárez Theater and Jardín Unión) where there are plenty of good restaurants, coffee shops, bars and eateries.

Almost every night there is a cultural event either in one of the theaters or in one of the plazas.

About: We are a bilingual, bicultural couple with Guanajuato roots. We are happy to share information with guests from around the world on local sights and attractions or other topics of interest. Bienvenid@s a Casa Sierra Roja!

Why Guanajuato City:
Guanajuato is one of Mexico’s cultural jewels and there is something magic and elusive about this city of ours. There is nothing in the world that compares to the sight in the late afternoon of the colorful houses set against the reddish hills and the dazzling blue sky. Enjoy one of Mexico’s treasures from the roof-top terrace of Casa Sierra Roja!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Sierra Roja is comfortable and cozy with Mexican charm and has plenty of space inside and out. It is centrally located off of Paseo de la Presa, a 3-minute walk from the colorful Embajadoras market anda 10-minute walk for Jardín de la Unión. The views from the balconies and roof–top terrace are spectacular. You can comfortably read a book or work on your computer on the Master suite balcony or roof-top terrace in rain or shine. The neighborhood is family-oriented and friendly, with good lighting at night. The lime tree in the patio provides juicy limes year-round for delicious margaritas!
