About the Property

Upscale PrivateFamily home; 2 large bedrooms with 2 baths + "optional Studio"

Please see our web page about Casa Chan and Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico: THE LINK IS BELOW

One of the VERY FEW Single Family Residences in all of Guanajuato Centro that is completely free standing and does not share any common house walls.

Completely remodeled home in Centro area of Guanajuato. Professionally locally managed to assure an enjoyable GTO experience. Only a 30 minute taxi ride from the Leon International Airport (BJX). The home is situated partially up the hillside a comfortable walk from all GTO has to offer. Spectacular views of the mountains as well as the town. The home is modern with classic Mexican charm. It has 2 spacious bedrooms and 2 baths and an attached, but private, efficiency studio (at an additional expense). Master bedroom has king size bed, bath with tub, large living area and 2 private balconies (one smaller and one very large) that offer spectacular views. The second bedroom has a double bed in a boveda ceilinged room, sliding doors that lead out to a beautiful patio and hall bath with shower. Kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, pots/pans, dishes, oven/stove, microwave, full size refrigerator, & coffee pot. Studio apartment can be rented for an additional fee. It has a queen bed, bath w/ shower and furnished kitchen. The roof top patio offers a great place to soak in the sun, enjoy the awe inspiring views and associated changing colors of the day/night and simply just relax the day away

GTO has many things to offer a visitor of the city: history, cultural events, theaters, museums, monuments, markets/shopping, language schools, restaurants, cafes, bars and numerous outdoor sports options.

It is only a 5 minute walk to the Embajadores area with its market and cafes and just a bit further to the 'La Presa de la Olla'-dam which has a nice area for dinning at one end and boats to rent and ducks to feed....a very popular locals destination.

A comfortable 12 minute walk down to the Union Jardin, Teatro Jaurez, University of Guanajuato, language schools, and a great number of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Just outside the city in Marfil is a sports complex with swimming, volleyball, soccer ect. Nearby excursions include; San Miguel, Dolores Hidalgo & Leon. There are several spas in the city itself, but one of our favorites is about an hour outside the city, 'La Gruta' Thermal Springs and Spa. It offers 3 outdoor thermal pools ranging from warm to hot in temperature. The grounds offer areas to sit in the sun and relax, a restaurant, lockers and showers. They also offer massages and facials.

Some simply consider Guanajuato to be the most beautiful authentic colonial city in all of Mexico. Tremendous history, performance arts, and 'finds' around near every corner. Most that visit once, return year after year.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are a professional long married couple that have traveled MX extensively. We have 3 children that grew up spending much time in this part of Mexico. We have lived full time in Mexico and now live half time. We understand how precious and limited discretionary time is and as such, we do everything in our power to assure your experience with our home is pure enjoyment from initial inquiry through return of security deposit. Our professional property manager is one of the greatest value added benefits of this rental property....

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
We love Mexico, its' people and the associated culture. Guanajuato is the capital of the state and is one of the oldest and safest cities in Latin America and is recognized as one of the principle cultural centers of Mexico and Latin America . The city offers events and attractions year time always runs out prior to seeing and enjoying all of the possibilities. GTO has a wonderful climate year round. We enjoy the pedestrian aspect of the city. Unlike many areas of Mexico, GTO is definitely still 'real Mexico' with friendly outgoing residents. We purchased the home, and spent thousands of hours (in addition to the many professionals we engaged) upgrading and remodeling every aspect of the home to make it a unique and extremely comfortable place to live and relax. When we can not be present, we employ a attentive property manager to assure all is how it should arriving you to the home and answering all of your questions and providing helpful suggestions.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is one of the VERY FEW homes in the Centro area that is truely a standalone home that does NOT share any common walls with a neighbor. Thoughtfully redesigned and upgraded to assure comfort and relaxation. We love to sit in the Union Jardin and people watch, going out to dine at the various restaurants, the La Gruta spa, shopping the markets, jogging around the La Presa and just relaxing /reading at our home. Guaranteed to lower your blood pressure just by sitting on one of the 5 patios and enjoying the view or reading a book.
