About the Property

1 Bedroom apartment, street level, town center. Spend a week or a few months!

This colonial era apartment is part of the larger House in Guanajuato (available for larger parties, please ask) but has its own private entrance. The location is inside the UNESCO World Heritage zone, just a few blocks from the Plaza de la Paz, Teatro Juarez, plazas Los Angeles and San Fernando. Theaters, restaurants, museums, shopping and ATMs are within easy walking distance.

The apartment features the high wood beamed ceilings and 3' thick stone walls typical of 18th century construction, updated with modern comforts. All materials used in the renovation were hand made and sourced locally, the tile, stone and wood bring the essence of colonial Mexico into the apartment. The apartment is a short walk up from Alonso, a local taxi can take you via "Cerro de Gallo" to within about 30 feet of the door. Visitors who have problems with stairs will appreciate the street level entrance, and the ability to walk to the main plazas and attractions with very few stair steps required.

The bedroom sleeps two on a full (double) sized bed, with bedside lamps to read by. Extra blankets and a heated mattress pad will ward off the chill in even the coldest weather. The living room couch pulls out into a sofa bed suitable for children. A small but functional equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals at home, though the many local options for eating out from street food to fine dining will tempt you to let someone else do the cooking. The spacious living/dining room makes a great place to study and relax while taking in the sounds of this most romantic of cities.

The apartment is ideal for stays of a week or more. Daily maid service available for extra charge.

Please note that Guanajuato is not a driving town. If you are planning to arrive by car, I can give you advice on where to park, and how to get to the property. The good news is once you are in, you will not need your car again until you are ready to leave! If you are flying into Leon/Guanajuato, I can help arrange transportation from the airport to the apartment.

If you need more room, contact me for availability of the House in Guanajuato.

This is a great city for concerts, chamber music, art and history. Troubadours roam the alleyways, check the posters at the Plaza de la Paz and the Jardin de la Reunion for performance schedules. You'll want to see a performance in the spectacular Teatro Juarez. I saw the Chicago Symphony perform there in 2012 during the Cervantino Festival which occurs each October.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I'm a software engineer who was born in Texas, and lived on 3 continents before settling back in the US. I split my time between Mexico and Austin. I love learning and sharing the history of my adopted home town. I've made the trip from Austin to Guanajuato just about every way imaginable, from the 'cheap' bus to piloting a small private plane. I'm happy to share what I've learned about living and travelling in Mexico.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
We had three criteria when we were looking for this property. Mexican colonial silver city, close to downtown, and access to modern communications and infrastructure. We were able to find all of this and more in this property. We traveled throughout central Mexico, but we kept coming back to Guanajuato. A true walking town, it condenses everything you could need into a compact city center.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We were looking for a home in one of Mexico's colonial cities. I love the European feel, and the uniqueness of a walking town, where everything you need from the corner produce shop to the symphony are within a 10 minute walk. A place where music comes to you. A place where you meet and chat (en Español) with neighbors and local shopkeepers as you see them daily as you walk to and from the apartment.
