About the Property

Don't Worry, I Always Try to Be a Good Communicator With All My Guests. Please

WE'VE LOWERED OUR RATES!!! For the up-coming months we are offering an incentive for everyone to experience this incredible city. It is truly one of the wonders of the world. Seemingly isolated from the hustle and bustle of todays rat race. Many of our guests have said, " I feel like I'm living back in the " 50's" again. You have see it to believe it.......So we welcome you to our Large beautiful light filled apartment nestled at the foot of the majestic Mount Bufa natural preserve. It has a fully equipped kitchen with private patio. Free parking right in front of your door with open access laundry facilities and its own secured private entrances. The habitat is classic mexican colonial style....... There are tile floors throughout, brightly colored contrasting walls, colonial styled ceilings, private bathroom with an individual shower covered in handmade talavera tile, with very hot water. It is fully furnished with beautiful new artisan hand carved furniture and a strong Fibre-Optic Wi-Fi signal 20 MG's Internet speed. It is ideal for couples and single’s who wish to stay and work on long or short term projects. It also comes with a task desk, executive chair and study corner. The view from the private patio is not only breathe taking but inspirational.Enjoy living in the country while being just only minutes away from the very heart of downtown Guanajuato.

This Historic Colonial Mexican, refuge has a panoramic view of the colorful European like town of Guanajuato on one side and the natural, pristine Mountain Bufa Preserve and on the other. Our place is brand new, very clean and quiet, (with an occasional barking dog) and is also in the safest neighborhood of the city. Speaking of safety, we're ranked one of the top 3 safest cities in the entire country. ( You will even feel safe walking the streets at night.) That's no joke.......

What makes this location so unique is it's peaceful, natural surroundings. Our guests always comment on the tranquility of our location... especially when you can walk right out your back door and hike right up to the impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa . If you love to hike, run, or bike , this is the perfect place with mountain trails at every turn , clean unpolluted air and plenty of sunshine. Many sporting events are popular here, foot, and bike races, along with countless other activities that always keeps you on the go. We are actually 6000 feet up so since this is a walking town many choose our transit system which runs anywhere from $.50 - $2.50 to go anywhere in the city. Please bring a good pair of walking shoes since there's more to see and experience on foot. We're surrounded by an incredible array of excellent restaurants, shops, and art galleries clubs, bars, bistros many of which have live music, (rock,jazz, traditional) that are only minutes away;
So you can choose to be rejuvenated and refreshed by the ambiance of our natural surroundings, We have a covered patio where you can watch incredible sunsets every day. Or take a 5-10 minute bus or taxi ride to the center of town for theaters, restaurants, museums, nightclubs, coffee houses and the many other fun things to do. There is a literal revolving calendar of activities each and every month of the year....Guanajuato is the main vacation attraction not only for native Mexican and Latin americans. but also for Canadians, Amerians, Europeans, Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, Australians, love it here because it's a city frozen in time. There's only two stop lights in the whole city and basically the buildings have remained the same for the past 400 years.( Member of UNESCO). Most of the native people have been here for generations which make them so fascinating to get to know. So if you want a taste of the real Mexico you'll get your fill and still keep coming back for more.... Which is our greatest complaint........We frequently hear at the end of our guests visits, " But I don't want to go".

During your stay you can arrange for local or more extensive sight seeing tours, hot spring outings, hikes to local forested mountains, culinary, art or cultural tours. Just let us know ahead of time.
If you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, then simply take a stroll into town passing tranquil streets, ancient plazas, callejons, and outdoor markets, that will literally transport you back to the colonial days of Old Mexico. Alfredo's Market, Hamburger stand and groceries are located just a few blocks away with many nearby street side vendors selling the freshest foods at the best if you like coffee, our next door neighbor is an award winning roaster with a variety of coffees and teas that will hook you at first sip. He personally stands there with a stop watch when it's roasting time. And his famous Beso Negro is a must do.....What we offer is unlike any place else in Guanajuato. Our goal is to make Guanajuato feel like home to you. We love getting to know our guests and doing what it takes to put a big smile on their face. So please if there's any questions, just see what our previous guests have said after their stay with us in the reviews . For one of the best vacations you'll ever have, there's no place like it on earth come stay with us and experience the enchantment of Beautiful Guanajuato. We are here to serve you!!! So, call us or write us now, why wait any longer and relaxation is awaiting you........... we speak English, Spanish, Italian and fluent body language. There are so many interesting things to do I would run out of space if I had to name them all so since we know the area well we will direct you to the places you must see and the things you must do. We look forward to being your hosts in the Enchanted Guanajuato.....................Make a reservation and mention this description for a free welcoming gift......

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: As a couple we love to combine our talents to make the perfect experience. Buzz being a San Diego California born native understands the wants and needs of foreign vacationers and Maria a born native of Mexico who speaks perfect english, both enjoy pampering their guests and individualizing care for each one according to their needs. We love people and find it fascinating to get to know each one. We are both dedicated to making your experience one you'll love and want to extend or repeat again.

Why the Owner Chose De La Presa, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
This place is like a dream come true...Maria and I wanted to live in Mexico, because there is so much about it to love. The people, the land, the natural beauty and tranquility, the easy going pace of life. The only problem was we couldn't make our minds up as to what part of Mexico we wanted to live. We traveled to many different places and loved them all. But when we came to Guanajuato. It was love at first sight. I was immediately captivated by it's pervading peace and tranquility, it's character shaped after 500 + years of history where buildings are original and preserved , the same way they were during the days before the Revolution......Its clean air, land and water. At times I have to look at the calendar to make sure I'm not in the 50's. The longer we live here the more I want to stay an never leave......

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our neighborhood is a highly secured area with security patrols regularly monitoring the area several times daily. It is located in the exclusive area of the city where professors, doctors and professionals live. We are within a 25 min. walk or a 5 minute ride to the center of town yet far enough away that you hear no irritating street traffic, or loud noise of any sort. This place is so infectious that once you arrive the natural ambiance of peace and tranquility will be such an attraction you won't want to leave. The location of our villas are perched right on the edge of the city with a breathtaking view of the Mount Bufa Preserve on the left and a panoramic view of the most colorfully decorated city in all of Mexico on your right. The nearness of the parks, plazas, reservoirs, coffee shops, gyms, hiking trails, restaurants, museums, night clubs and Bistros are minutes away by foot or even less by Uber, bus or taxi... The city is literally frozen in time . The native people here welcome visitors and are treated with the greatest dignity and respect. You will have to pinch yourself at times and ask ......Is this a dream. Bring your camera with an extra chip, photo opp's are everywhere.
