About the property

Gorgeous Home In Historic Center With Breath-Taking Views

Casa Mirador, which means a look-out point, enjoys breath-taking views from every room in the home as well as from the covered roof-top terrace. Just a 5min walk up from the Jardin Union, the heart of the historic center, it is a great location to explore and take in the most beautiful views of Guanajuato.

(However please note: Due to Guanajuato's mountainous terrain, one must be able to walk up & down pedestrian only alleyways with stairs to arrive to the home. Not suitable for those unable to walk up/down stairs.)

Casa Mirador Description:

The living room has built-in sofas, plants and a water fountain, as well as a wood-burning fireplace. Throughout the home there are large windows with amazing views, beautiful Mexican tile, terracotta floors, and wood-beamed ceilings. The kitchen has great views and is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare meals (including a dishwasher).

Each of the 2 bedrooms has a king-size bed, views from large windows, and a ceiling fan.

The private covered rooftop terrace has about 300 degrees of breathtaking views of the gorgeous city of Guanajuato and the surrounding mountains.

This is a great house in the heart of town at an affordable price.

Please note, historic Guanajuato is an Unesco World Heritage city not originally built for the automobile. Most homes are stacked up the hillsides and accessed by narrow alleyways with stairs that wind up the mountainsides. (rewarding visitors with those breath-taking views) However due to this terrain guests must be able to walk up and down such stairs to stay at this home. Cars do not pass in front of the home. Therefore unfortunately it is not suitable for those unable to walk up/down stairs.

However with this in mind the home is just a 5 min walk to the heart of town (Jardin Union), Escuela Mexicana and many other downtown sites.

After a long day of walking around town, you can take the charming funicular railway car up to the top at the El Pipila Monument where you can then walk back down to the home.

Parking is also available at El Pipila Monument.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

I have to add to the chorus of delighted tenants-- Mindie's apartment was gorgeous, immaculate, and well thought-out in nearly every way. Every room had a view, sometimes on multiple sides. The details were so appreciated-- the beautiful tiles, lamps, comfortable furniture, and quality appliances. The finer points-- dimmer switches, purified water on tap, auto-irrigation for the plants, and keyless entry (don't under estimate the convenience of this for a family). And I haven't even reached the rooftop terrace! It was just breathtaking. We spent hours up there trying to identify all the places we had visited in the city. This home was a refuge of peace and serenity in a vibrant and lively city.

Mindie responded quickly to every question I had. She provided detailed maps and a book of recommendations, and arranged transportation to the airport. She was great. Honestly, this rental was perfect in every way.

On top of the world.

  • 5 of 5

I didn't want to miss the opportunity to review this fabulous property. It is one of the most beautiful places I have rented through VRBO. Mindie , the owner, has thought of everything when it comes to making a stay comfortable. She was responsive and helpful with respect to arrival matters and provided a great orientation to the city. The location provides spectacular views while still being conveniently close to the center. I am already looking at the calendar to book my next visit.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Guanajuato in what our son described as the perfect home in the perfect location. Stunning views of the city and a great walk along winding cobble stone paths lead us to great adventures. The house is well equipped with everything we needed and each room feels authentic and genuinely comfortable and inviting.

We look forward to returning.

Thank you

Wonderful house

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable, beautiful home with an incredible view of Guanajuato. Location was excellent as it is close to Pipila and daytime parking and an easy climb from the Jardin. Unpredictable hot water issues were addressed quickly. Service and response times were excellent. This house will be our first choice on our next trip to Guanajuato.

Beautiful beyond words

  • 5 of 5

If I had to describe Mindies home I would simply say AMAZING. Well beyond anything I expected. SO much better than the pictures. Could not have asked for a more wonderful home in such a gorgeous city. The house leaves you needing nothing, and in a great neighborhood. Nothing is far away, and the city offers so much. My wife and I fell in love with Guanajuato. So much that we talk of living there some day. Incredible property owner. Mindie is attentive and very helpful. Already planning on coming back and hoping to stay at Casa Mirador.

Beautiful House with Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Mirador for almost a month, and from the moment we walked in I knew we were in for a treat. This is arguably the nicest home I have stayed in, or visited, in Guanajuato. It is centrally located, and if you can embrace the 4 minute uphill climb from el centro as part of the Guanajuato experience, you will be delighted. Everything in this house is fresh, updated and clean, the property manager is polite and helpful, the kitchen is stocked, the decor is charming, the view from the terraza is breathtaking. We loved our stay at Casa Mirador and can't wait to return.
