Guanajuato City house description

Nestled in the historical center of the city of Guanajuato, Mexico, Casa Encantada has a spectacular landscape view of this colorful and vibrant city. Its location overlooking Plaza San Fernando means that it is only a short walk to the most interesting sights and activities that Guanajuato has to offer.

One of the charming attributes of Guanajuato is how pedestrian friendly it is. Much of the automobile traffic is diverted below the city in a complex labyrinth of tunnels. The streets through town are narrow and primarily used by savvy local bus and taxi drivers. Most houses are inaccessible by car and can only be reached by climbing the centuries-old stone steps of the callejónes (narrow alleys).

From Calle Positos -- an active street with many attractions -- a modest climb up Callejón Cinco Señores takes you to Casa Encantada. Entering through the main gate, you are greeted by a lovely garden area inhabited by a peach tree and jasmine and hibiscus plants. Ascend a few more steps to the front door of the casa and be rewarded with spectacular views from nearly every room of the house!

The casa has large tiled floors, an artfully tiled kitchen, and large windows and glass doors that provide incredible views of this UNESCO World Heritage city. The house faces south, so on chilly Guanajuato mornings it warms up nicely as the sun pours in. The comfortable interior spaces are decorated with rustic Mexican wood furniture and colorful art on the artfully painted walls.

The 1100 square foot house includes 3 bedrooms, 2 ½ bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living room and a soaking tub. However, the most spectacular area may well be the large outdoor patio on the upper level, which affords sweeping 180 degrees views of the picturesque city while drinking coffee in the morning or sipping wine in the evening.

On the main floor is one of two large, romantic master bedrooms. It has a queen-size bed, high quality linens, and a sitting area to take in the view of the city or read a good book. Off the bedroom is a full bathroom with a walk-in shower. There is also a cozy single bedroom with a painted wall mural for an additional guest. The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-burner gas stove, refrigerator/freezer and basic house wares such as a microwave oven, coffee-maker and blender. Eat and drink from authentic Mexican ceramic dinnerware. Spilling out from the kitchen is a cozy, relaxing living room area with soft lighting, a small music system and, again, the view!

From the garden, a wrought iron spiral staircase takes you up to the spectacular patio area on the upper level. A few steps away from the patio is a second spacious master bedroom with a queen-size bed. Adjacent to the bedroom is a full bath, complete with a walk-in shower and soaking tub. The upper level provides privacy for another couple including a sitting area in the bedroom furnished with a chaise lounge.

Guests have access to the internet throughout the house. The property manager is fluent in both Spanish and English, and will greet you on the day of your arrival and check you out on your last day. Weekly cleanings are included if your stay lasts more than two weeks.

We know that you will enjoy your “home away from home” stay in La Casa Encantada and hope that you take advantage of the amazing historical and arts activities the lovely city of Guanajuato provides!

                  Why Guanajuato City:
                  In our travels to Mexico, we have found Guanajuato to be a magical place. Casa Encantada is the perfect location for experiencing all the city has to offer. The house is close to everything and has spectacular views from nearly every room. You can hear the sounds and music of the plazas, but are far enough away to completely relax.
