3 BR/3 BA RENOVATED VACATION HOME

Guanajuato House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

GUANAJUATO: the crown jewel of Spanish Colonial cities in the Mexico highlands! Settled in the 1550's, the city looks more like towns in southern Spain, Italy, or Portugal than most in Latin America. Exceptionally mild climate at 6600 ft above sea level; amazingly diverse and cosmopolitan arts. Annual Festival Cervantino runs through most of October and with performers and artists from across the world.

This beautifully renovated house is in the center of Guanajuato, within minutes' walk of the Mercado Hidalgo, Jardin de la Reforma, Plazuela de San Fernando, Alhondiga, cathedral, Jardin Union, Teatro Juarez, and Festival Cervantino venues - the heart of the best Colonial Highland town in Mexico - two blocks from the 'Callejon del Beso' (alley of the kiss) above Plaza de los Angeles, and on one of few streets accessible by car in the Zona Centro (but we discourage driving large vehicles - Suburbans or big SUVs - down our narrow one-way street).

FIRST FLOOR:

Tall Colonial-style wood beam ceilings in living room and one bedroom - both with shuttered window embrasures facing street. Bedroom has double bed, closet, and full set of Colonial-style furniture.

Double keystone arches separate large living room from dining room with formal dining table.

Complete kitchen with all appliances - gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave - and a complete set of cookware and colorful tableware for six from Talavera Vasquez in Dolores Hidalgo. Washer and gas dryer in utility area next to kitchen and first floor bathroom and shower.

SECOND FLOOR:

2 bedrooms - a master suite with king bed and bath en suite, with 3 French doors opening onto small balconies overlooking Callejon San Cristobal; and a second bedrooom with double bed and casement windows opening onto interior stairwell, and large bath adjacent. A reading room on second floor - with a huge sliding window wall and balcony facing the city center - has a loveseat that folds out into a large twin bed. Glass block skylights flood natural light into stairwell, second bedroom, hallway, and baths while affording privacy and security.

ROOFTOP TERRACES:

the entire roof of the house is made up of two terrazas with seating and tables for 6 on lower terrace and large pavilion with table and seating for 4 on upper terrace; breath-taking views of Zona Centro and most of the city and surrounding mountains.

MISCELLANEOUS:

tankless hot water heater supplies entire household without problems. 3 baths have gorgeous talavera sinks and tiling (as does the kitchen). Linens and towels supplied.

We quite accidentally spent a week in Guanajuato during the brief time between the Festival Cervantino and la Dia de los Muertos and were swept away by the visual and musical beauty of the city.

Just go - you will not regret it!

Jeff Cortazzo purchased this house in 2007

more public entertainment and music, more accessible art and culture than any city of like population that we've ever seen - great weather year 'round and particularly in the winter (the dry seaon in the Colonial Highlands)....

within 3 minutes' walk of main public market (Mercado Hidalgo), accessible by car, and within 10 minutes' walk of almost all public performance venues in town.

both the house and the location were ideal . the house is in an authentic neighborhood yet 5 minutes from a major walking street and a lovely treed plaza with an array of restaurant choices. the major community market is also very close. the house has all you'll need , recently decorated, nice art choices, a modern well equipped kitchen plus a spectacular view from the rooftop terrace..think positano, italy or valpariso, chile.

A great experience I recommend! House is in the middle of all the action: attend a posada with all the traditions, wake up everyday to bring home for a few pesos a full variety of deliciously cooked dishes like menudo, carnitas, tamales, guava atole, freshly squeezed orange juice, all within few doors to few blocks away. House is beautiful, well equipped and with great location for all attractions at wlking distance. Thanks Jeff for the opportunity!

Best Ever

We have rented through VRBO for years now, in Menton France, Ceret France, Oaxaca Mexico, and Guanajuato Mexico, in the last case at four different locations, and this was the best of them all. Because we were actually in GTO (Guanajuato) the year before we spent the winter of 2013 at this address, we were able to view it directly before deciding to ask to rent it, so the accuracy of the images on the VRBO website was not an issue: we were immediately charmed by this elegantly renovated, cosy home in the heart of GTO. It's most striking feature is its roof garden on a third floor with a roof for shade, but also ample space for sunning. Because the house is on the side of a hill (not too far up!) it has 360 degree views of the city, including the Basilica, the spectacularly designed university, the Alhondiga where the first successful battle of the struggle for Mexican independence occurred, and the central market "Mercado Hidalgo" just next door with its Eiffel-designed clock tower, and much more. The first floor is very comfortable, with plenty of seating and a cosy bedroom. Even with its window shutters open, it is rather dim during even the sunniest days, but ho cares when you've got that roof? The kitchen/dining area is modern and most attractive, with soaring arches between it and the living rom, echoed in similar arched recesses in the kitchen walls, which hold magnificent highlit platters of local design. There is a small room overlooking the north side of the city, with hundreds of feet of variegated coloured houses to be viewed across the valley through a all of mullioned glass. There is a small guest bedroom with bath, and a huge master bedroom with en suite. And a staircase to this great roof. Because of its location, the house is within easy walking distance of the city's many picturesque squares, Plazas El Roque (where there are bleachers and kleigs for an endless succession of performances of music, dance drama; San Fernando basically across the street for restaurants, of which the Van Gogh is the most reliable, the plaza de la Paz, the most imposing and "European" of the squares, and the most exquisite, El Union, site of the rather stuffy but always reliable Casa Valadez, and the outdoor bar at La Luna hotel for a margarita. Around the corner is teatro Principal, where the excellent GTO symphony holds its concerts, and a short cab rid away is the museo Gene Byron, which has Sunday concerts. The town is one long festival, but I've run out of.
