Why Helena OConnor chose Zona Centro

After living in Guanajuato for two years, we wanted a place that was both convenient but above the downtown chaos, barking dogs, and noise. This property has it all: super convenient location, spectacular view, easy car access, and large private lot. The apartments are very livable and cozy. The gardens are lovely and removed from hustle and bustle, yet the city center is a short walk away.

What makes this apartment unique

Secure parking! Sunny orientation, and lovely landscaping. Great view and access to downtown. Unique location.

Family of four w kids gives it five stars!! Cinco Estrella's!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple with two boys ages 11 and 6. We spent several weeks in Mexico and began with two weeks in Guanajuato. We stayed in one of the O'Connor's apartments. We were drawn by the excellent location and beauty of the property but we were impressed beyond our expectations.

Clean, charming, 100% functional with ability to work remotely with dependable WIFi and proximity to all. Laundry for my kids and hubby was a breeze with on-site facility. The property is safe. The grounds are impeccably maintained and my children enjoyed reading and playing in the children's clubhouse onsite.

We did not have a car and never felt like we needed one. Everything is accessible. The bus stops right off the Panoramica outside. This place is crisp and precious and as a bonus, spacious.

Tip: go on an adventure, take a taxi to the central bus station and catch a bus to Queretaro. In Queretaro catch a bus to Ixmiquilpan. Now, get a cab to Grutas de Tolantongo. Look it up online. It's is marvelous. Stay 24 hours and come back.

We did it with kids and it was a life experience we will treasure forever.

We also visited Cañada de la Virgen Pyramid in nearby San Miguel de Allende Area. This location is great as a base or if you just need to get away and post up in picturesque Guanajuato.

Buen viaje to all.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us! We especially love that your boys enjoyed the play house. You are right that our large, safe, nicely landscaped garden is an unusual bonus for Guanajuato properties, and especially good for families. Thank you so much for being great guests and taking the time to write this appreciative review. We would love to host you again!!

Perfect apartment to meet our needs

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in my favorite neighborhood of Guanajuato: safe, perched above the center, and with direct access to multiple neighborhoods. The apartment is clean, comfortable, and situated within a quiet and very beautiful garden among two other apartments and a house. The neighbors are peaceful and friendly and the apartment manager is super helpful. My family felt immediately at home during their stay. There was plenty of space for my two parents and brother, and the apartment has everything they needed during their stay including hot water, a coffee maker, cooking supplies, towels, and comfortable beds and furniture. We also all enjoyed the gorgeous view of the city from their balcony and of the mountains from the garden patio. We would not hesitate to rent the apartment agin during our next visit to Guanajuato and highly recommend it to other visitors.

Bright, beautiful and secure

  • 5 of 5

The simplicity of this apartment first attracted my attention on VRBO: everything you need is here--and not a stick of over-stuffed furniture more! Then, when I arrived and stepped through the door, my first thought was "It's much cuter than the photos online!"

The garden out back is big and utterly gorgeous; every time I glanced at those giant agaves or the fuchsia bougainvillea or the lemon tree, or caught a whiff of the jasmin or rosemary, I felt so happy. And, thanks to its four large windows, the apartment is bright and sunny all day--a rarity in Guanajuato, and a boon in the colder months! The view of the city from the front windows is spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset.

The owners and the property managers are extremely kind, and were very responsive whenever there were problems with the gas, electricity or water--as invariably happens in Mexico!

It's a ten-minute walk down a well-lit callejon into the centre of town. Because the apartment is not smack-dab in the city centre, it provides a nice refuge from the crowds and noise when Guanajuato gets busy, as it can on weekends and during holidays/festivals. The apartment is located on The Panorámica, a ring road above and around the city, so you always have the option of taking a taxi right to the gate--convenient if you have a lot of groceries or if it's getting late at night. (And, if you have a car, you can drive right in!) The property is secured by high walls, and I always felt safe there.

I first rented the apartment for five months. I loved it and Guanajuato so much, I returned for another six!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. So glad you appreciate our gardens. Our goal has been to create a little sanctuary close but perched above the very lively Guanajuato center. We welcome you for as long and as often as you like!!
