Property description

This colonial-era house is in the historical center of Guanajuato, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is located at the intersection of two pedestrian streets. It has been renovated to U.S. standards with potable water, a great shower, hairdryer, WiFi, a well equipped kitchen, folk art and books and comfortable furniture. Once inside, a staircase leads to the master bedroom and a separate study with shared bath. The kitchen, dining and living areas are on the second floor. There is a 'dumb waiter' to lift your luggage and groceries to their floors. Above the living area there is a private, sun-drenched terrace with fabulous views of the city. Most evenings the Callejoneadas (student musicians) dressed in traditional Spanish costumes lead groups singing along the historic streets. Its great location makes for easy walking to the markets, city squares, restaurants, the university, museums, shopping, and the Jardin Union, the social heart of the city.

House details: There is a sink using cold water only and a clothesline on the roof. Ceiling fans are in the bedroom, study and living room/ dining area. The bedroom has good storage, bedside lights, and comfortable queen-size bed. The living area has beautiful art and history books, and a large selection of CD’s. There are telephones for local calls only. No smoking is allowed in the house or on the roof. No pets. No children. The house sleeps two comfortably but does have a single sofa/bed in the study. The bathroom is between the bedroom and study. The half bath is located on the third floor near the living room and dining area. The house is decorated with art and folkart.

Across the cobblestone walkway from the house is the San Roque church that is over 350 years old. The charming Plaza San Roque a few steps away is a principal venue for the Festival International Cervantino, one of Latin America’s most renowned cultural festivals.

Location

Car: Not Necessary

The location of the house does not require climbing up hills. It is located on a "pedestrian only" street in the heart of the colonial city. A taxi can let you off 2 blocks from the house. There is a 'dumb waiter' inside the front entrance to carry luggage/groceries/packages up the stairs to the bedroom and kitchen areas. Most sights of the city are within easy walking distances.
