Gorgeous Casa Verde on Caracol is a 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 of this UNESCO World Heritage town just 5 minutes (really 5 minutes on foot BOTH ways) away. Combining beautiful views of El Centro with being directly in it provides our guests with an enchanting Guanajuato experience; we look forward to welcoming you to Casa Verde.
The house has a fabulous location, in the Centro but tucked up calle potrero for privacy and tranquility - this is not one of those listings that promises a 15 minute walk but that's only downhill one way. That said, this house like any house in GTO is not accessible by car, it is NOT recommended for people with difficulty walking as there are thirty steps to the front door from the "flats" of potrero and the Centro. The house is ample and comfortable, with classic charm and modern amenities. We are within 10 minutes walk 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 and a built-in grill. 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 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 long gallery style balcony, a 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 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 too. 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.
Rates reflect the fact that this house offers the best combination of quality and location offered in GTO for vacation rentals. Many listings exaggerate their proximity to the centro because almost any house is a 15-20 minute downhill plunge to the bottom. home is another matter. We hear again and again that casa verde has the best location of any short term rental in the city. The apt rents for $300 USD for one week and $750 for a month. The House rents for $700 USD for one week and $1750 for a month. Both units together rent for $1000 for one week and $2500 for a month. Two week discounts are also available upon request. During Cervintino Festival, Day of the Dead, Navidad, Ano Nuevo and Semana Santa rates are increased by 20%. Standard cleaning is provided weekly (floors, linens changed, bathroom). Additional cleaning is available for an additional charge. Maintenance is provided by contacting local property managers.
This Property is Accessible Only on Foot, as is Much of the City. Views Are Stunning, But This is Not Recommended for Those with Difficulty Walking. Unlike Many Listings that Say They Are in the Centro, This House Really is, But You Cannot Drive to the Door. Property Can Be Divided Into Home and Apartment. Smoking on Terraza and Balcony Only Please.
We look forward to welcoming you to spectacular Casa & Apartment Verde on Caracol! Kevin & Alex

Why Owner chose Zona Centro
We simply fell in love with the city and the pace of life in this culture.
What makes this House unique
location and quality. We love the pedestrian lifestyle in the city, as well as the great views due to the incredible architecture and the steep terrain. Views and beauty. 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. near the party, but separate from the party. We also love the festive atmosphere but are happy to leave it behind for the tranquility of casa caracol. This is not always possible with hotels or apartments on the main streets. 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. pedestrian lifestyle. Guanajuato is at high altitude and is full of irregular steps and stairs, if you have difficulty walking you will be limited here! The upside is that after a week walking at this altitude you will feel fit and likely shed a few lbs!

Beautiful and spacious in the centro!
Steps from the city center; no long walk or miles of stairs
Fantastic terrace with gorgeous views
Plenty of room to entertain
Views from the living room are almost as great as the terrace
Amazing terrace “casita” with full bath that with a mini kitchen could be a stand-alone apartment-great for sharing
Updated everything without losing the character of the area
Across the alley from Escuela Mexicana
Cons? Hard to think of any!
We’ll be back next year and probably take the house AND apartment so all our friends and family can visit.
Beautiful house in the perfect location!
This house is literally 2 minutes from the main plaza and is in the center of the historic district. Although the steps leading up to the door are a little difficult they are nothing compared to other houses we've rented in GTO. The caretakers are the owners of the restaurant at the entrance to the alley and are very helpful! The house has an enormous sunny terrace and is great for entertaining. The beds are the most comfortable we've found in Mexico. We love Casa Verde!!
Beautiful house and apartment in central location
We stayed in this house and apartment for a week in February 2017 - our second time there. The house is very comfortable, with an AMAZING patio for outdoor grilling and a pleasant study/game room on the second floor. It is extremely central, yet relatively quiet for a place in the center because of its height and orientation. Sandra and Bere, the caretakers, were friendly, responsive, and welcoming. I recommend it highly!
Stole our money!
This review is a year late. I've finally gotten over what transpired, but would like other renters to take heed. Thought it would be a good rental, whilst we looked for a permanent home. Upon seeing the property, I realized that it was not conducive for my 80 year old mother. I arrived a couple of days before the family to situate us on our move. The stairs are quite steep. I immediately informed management/owners of my dilemma. They were of no help and basically stated there was nothing they could do. We had rented the place for 2 months. They offered no help, no refund, no nothing.... Take heed! They'll steal your money!
This review and its title are misleading and unfair. From the listing on VRBO: "This Property is Accessible Only on Foot, as is Much of the City. Views Are Stunning, But This is Not Recommended for Those with Difficulty Walking. Unlike Many Listings that Say They Are in the Centro, This House Really is, But You Cannot Drive to the Door. " Also our rental contact clearly states that we cannot give a refund once the booking begins (for obvious reasons). in event of cancellation we re list the property and apply any income towards a refund. This is all clearly stated in the contract. Basically, she is blaming us for her mistakes. Also I think VRBO should not permit the dishonest headline to her review to stand. Oh well....have a lovely day everyone!
Case Verde is a comfortable vacation option for 6 people with the biggest plus being the proximity to the center of the action of the Jardin, theaters and plazas with their many shopping and restaurants options. Having a BBQ grill up on the terrace was awesome along with the City views, -but please be aware of the steep and difficult climb to the main entrance -steps are very uneven and of different heights-. For our family to have a TV in the entertainment room would have made it a perfect vacation home -the world series was on when we were there and many of the sports bars in the area were filled with cigarette smoke- as well as small touches such as comfortable towels, a new shower liner and enough usable pots and pans to cook. Yes, James, the property manager, was very helpful in getting us a non-stick egg pan, usable cooking pans and enough glasses/cups for 6 people; he also quickly replaced the gas tank when on our third day the gas was running low so thanks to him the rest of our stay was more comfortable.
Excelent house for big families
Our staying in Casa Verde was very pleasant, we where 8 adults and 2 kids and the space was more than sufficient, the view is lovely, the utilities and furniture where more than enough, you will not need anything more than groceries. Wifi works perfectly, as well as the kitchen appliances. Even though we were 10 people trying to get ready at the same time, we never run out of hot water. We used the washer and dryer machines and both works perfectly.
The only observation is that there are electrical voltage variations (due to city standards or electrical infrastucture) so keep in mind to bring a surge protector in case you are bringing special electronics such as computers, just to be safe.
We definetly recommend it and will be our 1st choice on our next visit to Guanajuato.
