A lovely Mexican style home just minutes above the University of Guanajuato and an enchanting 7 minute walk to the Historic Centre. The home offers modern amenities, including a computer, internet with wi-fi, and a local cell phone for guest use.
We provide professional management and greeting services. The home is on a quiet and secure street with 8 or 9 other houses and we all have easy car access and private, gated parking, not very common in Guanajuato. (Casa Camino Real has private parking for 2 cars if you have visitors). However to get right downtown to 'el centro', it's best to just walk down the street - and take a $3 cab ride back up the hill again if you'd rather not walk back. The University of Guanajuato, with its self-learning language centre, as well as excellent language schools are all within walking distance, as are good restaurants, fun markets and quality museums. A 3-minute walk up the street from the house, into the Cerro del Cuarto neighbourhood, you will find convenience stores, green grocers etc. - real Mexican street life, including a family who sells wonderful barbecued chicken!
The house has the traditional vaulted brick 'boveda' ceilings in every room with hand made Mexican tiles on the walls and floors. The furniture is a mix of Mexican antique and locally made custom furniture. New quality mattresses and bedding in all three bedrooms and decorative Mexican textiles and locally made light-fixtures and crafts throughout.
There is a cosy study overlooking the living room with a computer and high speed internet.
There is also an extra room that can be used as an art studio. The generous rooftop deck, with greenery and a new gas barbecue, overlooks the local church and the surrounding mountains - a great place to relax in the sun, have dinner or just watch the moon rise and the stars come out and fill the nighttime sky.
The maid will come and clean once a week, and will take care of laundry and ironing for a small fee, if you prefer to not use the washing machine in the house. Our rental agent and property manager, James of Guanajuato Land & Homes, who speaks fluent German, Spanish and English, will
greet you upon arrival and orient you to the Casa Camino Real and Guanajuato. He is always available to answer any questions or help with any
issues that might come up.
We're happy to answer any e-mails with questions you might have about the house, the neighborhood or the town itself.
My name is Kim Young - I am a high school teacher - Spanish and French. I live in beautiful British
Columbia, Canada, on a float home in the harbour of Victoria. I was born in Sweden (hej alla svenskar!) and
grew up in Belgium (salut les Belges!) but chose Canada as my home about 30 years ago.
I started traveling to Mexico with my students many years ago and have always found it to be a magical
place, where one can truly leave the competitive, materialistic world of the north behind and get back to
the real stuff of a good life; enough time, simple real food, genuine people, music.....can't wait for the next
After getting to know many different areas in Mexico, including the coast, I decided that I wanted to be in a place that had strong cultural elements, wasn't too large and had fully maintained it's Mexican character. The fact that Guanajuato is a University town as well as the state
capital gives it a strength of identity and makes for a great mix of people of all ages and interests. And yet there is enough of an international
element to make one feel welcome as a visitor. I bought Casa Camino Real specifically because it is very close to the centro, but not right in
the middle of the action!
