If you've ever been to Guanajuato City, you understand why we have emphasized STREET LEVEL! Most vacation rentals in Guanajuato require a steep and exhausting climb with no vehicle access. Because Guanajuato is a very hilly city, a “good” location is one that is in the main valley. Our house is conveniently located on a pedestrian-only level callejon (street) just off Calle Juarez, one of the city’s main streets. The house is in a neighborhood called Tepetapa. It is steps from the square where you will find many small shops and services, including a tortilleria, butcher, fruit and vegetable stands, hardware, hair dresser, furniture store, etc. Also at the square you can easily hail a cab or hop on a bus to all parts of the city. Both taxis and buses are extremely inexpensive and readily available.
The house itself was designed for two couples and it provides lots of privacy. The first floor has a large foyer, a den with hide-a-bed, a powder room, and a master bedroom with ensuite. The second floor has the kitchen, a dining room, a living room and another master bedroom with ensuite. Stairs lead from this floor up to the rooftop which has a BBQ, eating area, laundry and amazing views of the city. In both bedrooms, there are twin beds that can be pushed together if that suits you better. We have many windows that open, but they are supported by beautiful wrought iron features for your security. The second floor also has two sets of double doors opening onto Juliette balconies. Our recent renovation added modern appliances, and fixtures, WiFi and cable TV. This home has many wonderful Mexican features, including hand painted Talavera tiles and other authentic motifs and local art but, at the same time, the modern appliances and comfy furniture will add to your enjoyment of staying in the picturesque colonial city of Guanajuato.
If you want to see all the sights at a leisurely pace, we are an easy stroll to downtown and all the restaurants, patios and the beautiful colonial buildings and churches which make Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so special to visit. As you head towards town, you will pass the large, modern supermarket, Comercial or, a few blocks further on, you will pass the Mercado Hidalgo, Guanajuato’s large traditional Mexican indoor market. It is totally safe and you will experience the fun of shopping for fresh local produce and browsing through the interesting kiosks.
The local shopkeepers and our neighbors speak only Spanish, but they are happy to help you with yours: buy a chicken and get a free lesson on verb conjugations! Every outing is an opportunity for a cultural exchange!! We think that living in a vibrant Mexican neighborhood enhances the experience of being in Guanajuato and hope that, if you choose to stay in our home, you will feel the same.
Our house is managed by a friendly Mexican family. They are delightful, easy to work with, and will be happy to help you practice your Spanish. They can arrange for a driver to meet you at the airport and drive you directly to the house if that is a help upon arrival.

Guanajuato is tricky for anyone who finds walking difficult. Streets and sidewalks are cobblestone, so wheel-chairs have a lot of trouble. But since our home is on street level, it IS possible with some difficulty. The home is a two-level, requiring climbing one set of stairs to the kitchen....moreless

- No callejon climbing on this home - we're located right on street level! If you've been to Guanajuato, you KNOW what an advantage that is. If you haven't, you should know that most rentals in Guanajuato require a climb to the house, some very steep and long (no vehicles allowed). Many require vigorously climbing steps as well. Our home is right on street level! The house will be fully cleaned and ready for your visit. If you would like to have the house cleaned periodically while you are in Guanajuato, the manager would be happy to arrange for someone to clean again for an additional fee....moreless

Car: Not Necessary
For those of you bringing a car, there is a large inexpensive parking lot about 5 minutes away, although Guanajuato City is best enjoyed on foot! Since our home is uniquely on street level, you can take the bus or taxi right to the door!
Our home is located in the neighborhood of Tepetapa, a safe traditional neighborhood made up of Mexican families. It has its own little commercial area just outside the house, including internet cafes, bakeries, taco stands, artisan market, gift shops, etc. Although it's most fun to shop for food at the local tienditas (small markets/stores), there is a Comercial Mexicana (large grocery store) within a few minutes walk from the house!
Year Purchased: 2008
About: We are two couples (sister and brother and spouses) from Victoria, B.C., Canada. We fell under the spell of Guanajuato and wanted to own property here. Once we renovated the property, we realized that we would love to share this comfortable home with other visitors to Guanajuato. It's a special place to safely enjoy the city in comfort.
Why Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
We looked for over a year for an affordable property at street level and were so happy to find this home located in a traditional Mexican neighborhood, rather than in the center of the tourist areas. We've found Tepetapa to be a hidden jewel, safe and with warm and friendly neighbors. It's just a bit off the beaten bath, but within an enjoyable walk to all the downtown fun.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoyed furnishing the home for our personal comfort, and know you will spend wonderful times here as we have. You will truly love the fact that we are on street level, as your days will already be spent walking the city - at the end of the day, we always are grateful not to have a climb a callejon to our house, especially when we're carrying groceries! There are also numerous public transportation options to the house. We are truly happy to share this property with you and hope you enjoy your stay in our home!
