Overview

Guanajuato House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bed/3 Bath, Patio w/ Garden, Rooftop Terrace, Children and Pets Welcome

Casa Sierra Roja is centrally located just 3 minutes by foot to the tree-lined Embajadoras area and market and 15 minutes by foot to Jardín de la Unión. It is nestled in a family-oriented neighborhood off a wide and well-lit callejón that is just 40 steps from the main street below. Amazingly, if you hike the 400+ steps to reach the top of the callejón, you only have to walk another 10 minutes to reach the base of the Bufa, a protected area where there are numerous hikes and ample opportunities for scrambling and rock climbing.

Casa Sierra Roja is spacious and well-suited for couples or a family. Kids and pets are welcome. One highlight is the Master suite on the second floor with a king-size bed, vaulted ceiling and covered balcony with glass doors and comfortable seating for two. From the balcony, there is an impressive view of the sierra, which turns a dramatic red shade at sunset.

Another star feature is the roof-top terrace with both open-air and covered areas, where you will enjoy splendid views of the city and surrounding geological wonders. From the terrace, you can plug in your computer or cook dinner on the full-size BBQ.

The lower level of Casa Sierra Roja opens onto an intimate shaded garden with a lime tree that has organic limes for picking year-round. The quaint Mexican-style kitchen and connected dining room include full amenities.

There is a foyer with seating and cozy living room areas on both levels for avid readers looking for a good corner to curl up with a book!

The house can comfortably sleep from 2 to 7 people. In addition to the Master suite, there are two bedrooms on the second floor: one with a single bed and balcony and another with two singles. There is another bedroom with a double bed on the first floor. There are 3 full bathrooms: 1 on the first floor and 2 on the second floor (including Master Suite bathroom).

Other features of Casa Sierra Roja include a full-size automatic washing machine and high-speed wireless Internet service. For families with young children, there are gated areas to control play and child-safe balconies. Equipment for babies and small children is available upon request (collapsible crib, changing table, stroller, etc.)

A once-a-week cleaning is included and additional cleaning services are available at a reasonable price.

We are certain that guests will immediately feel at home in Casa Sierra Roja, which serves as a perfect base for exploring the magic colonial city of Guanajuato and the stunning natural areas that border the city. As bilingual and bi-cultural hosts, we are available to answer questions about the local area and culture. We want to make your stay in Mexico as comfortable and carefree as possible.

About Kim and Arturo

We are a bilingual, bicultural couple with Guanajuato roots. We are happy to share information with guests from around the world on local sights and attractions or other topics of interest. Bienvenid@s a Casa Sierra Roja!

Kim and Arturo purchased this house in 2000

Why Kim and Arturo chose Guanajuato

Guanajuato is one of Mexico’s cultural jewels and there is something magic and elusive about this city of ours. There is nothing in the world that compares to the sight in the late afternoon of the colorful houses set against the reddish hills and the dazzling blue sky. Enjoy one of Mexico’s treasures from the roof-top terrace of Casa Sierra Roja!

What makes this house unique

Casa Sierra Roja is comfortable and cozy with Mexican charm and has plenty of space inside and out. It is centrally located off of Paseo de la Presa, a 3-minute walk from the colorful Embajadoras market anda 10-minute walk for Jardín de la Unión. The views from the balconies and roof–top terrace are spectacular. You can comfortably read a book or work on your computer on the Master suite balcony or roof-top terrace in rain or shine. The neighborhood is family-oriented and friendly, with good lighting at night. The lime tree in the patio provides juicy limes year-round for delicious margaritas!

This was my sixth trip to the magical city of Guanajuato and I've found the house that I will return to on my next visit. I've stayed in a number of VRBO houses and Casa Sierra Roja is by far the nicest and best value among them.
Four beautiful bedrooms and 3 roomy and functional bathrooms make this an ideal house for a large family (there was 7 of us and plenty of room) or couples. In the month we never ran out of hot water (a treat in Mexico) and the laundry facilities were excellent
The kitchen is fully equipped (the stove and fridge are better quality than mine in Canada) with all the pots and pans and cutlery (including sharp knives) that you need, and great lighting in the evenings so cooking in the house was easy.
Lots of windows in the house bring in natural light and provide nice views of the city and surrounding hills. The terrace was very large and functional with a table and 6 chairs and a bbq. The view over the city and of the surrounding hills…….Gorgeous!! 2 separate cozy sitting areas provide some space to sit and read or chat.
Kim was an amazing host. She was available the whole time to help us out with any questions or requests, provide us with loads of helpful information about the city and surrounding areas, and made us feel at home in Casa Sierra Roja right from the start.
The house is 40 steps up a very well lit callejon. We felt safe in the neighbourhood the whole time. It took about 13 minutes, at a good pace, to walk through the interesting Ambajadores Plaza to the Centro.
I would highly recommend Casa Sierra Roja. By far the best VRBO value in Guanajuato.

Estuvimos el fin de semana de las fiestas patrias. Realmente es una casa hermosa, amplia, muy cómoda y bien cuidada. El estilo elegante y sencillo, y muy propio de lo colonial.
La seriedad y amabilidad de quienes lo rentan nos transmitió mucha confianza.
Recomendamos esta casa, además de que, el costo es bastante accesible.

A lovely escape from A Canadian winter

  • 4 of 5
We spent a wonderful month at Casa Sierra Roja. It's everything the listing said it would be, close to everything (but not too close), splendid views, lots of windows and a lovely, large master bedroom. We had plenty of room for the family to visit and they loved the casa as well. The place was spotless, the beds all comfy and the basket chairs on the balcony perfect for an evening Margarita. The cultural opportunities and great restaurants are too numerous to mention. The city is in a canyon and has the usual Guanajuato noise, but ear plugs worked wonders. The hosts were delightful and very helpful, even leaving a mobile phone for us. We'll be back.

Excelente estancia en Guanajuato!

  • 5 of 5
Pasamos 3 noches en Casa Sierra Roja y fue una gran opcion para nuestra familia, no solo porque se ajusto muy bien a nuestros planes, sino tambien porque ofrecio un excelente valor por la inversion. Queriamos hacer una visita corta a Guanajuato antes de Navidad, ver la ciudad, y utilizar esta locacion como base para desplazarnos a San Miguel de Allende y Leon. Una vez que llegamos y vimos la casa, hubiesemos querido extender nuestra estancia para disfrutar mas todo lo que tenia que ofrecer!

La casa es muy bonita y la decoracion es de excelente gusto. Los espacios estan muy bien utilizados y permite acomodar entre 7-10 personas comfortablemente. Cuenta con 4 recamaras, 3 ba#os, cocina, sala, comedor, y terraza, e incluye vajilla, utensilios de cocina, asador de carne, acceso a internet, TV/DVD, y lavadora, entre otras cosas.

La casa esta ubicada sobre Callejon de Zaragoza a unos cuantos metros de Paseo de la Presa, donde pudimos encontrar lugar para estacionar dos automoviles mientras estuvimos ahi (la propiedad no cuenta con estacionamiento propio). Por cuestion de conveniencia decidimos movernos en taxi para ver Guanajuato (esta es una ciudad de calles estrechas y es dificil encontrar donde estacionarse, asi que esta fue la mejor opcion). Cerca de la casa hay tiendas de conveniencia donde se puede surtir despensa.

Algunos detalles que le a#aden un encanto especial a la propiedad son el area de la entrada con su decoracion colonial, la sala de la planta baja con sus mascaras artesanales en las paredes, la cocina con su acento tradicional de colores rojizos contrastando con arcos y azulejos, y la recamara principal con su espectacular domo concavo. La vista desde la terraza es tambien una de las cosas que vale la pena mencionar.

Nuestra comunicacion con Kim fue muy buena desde que empezamos a planear esta estancia unos meses atras, respondiendo a nuestros e-mails con preguntas de manera pronta y compartiendo recomendaciones con cosas para hacer, lugares donde comer, y sitios que visitar mientras estuviesemos en la ciudad. Kim habla ingles y domina perfectamente el espa#ol.

Por las razones anteriores, recomiendo esta propiedad como una gran alternativa para visitar Guanajuato y sus alrededores.

Bliss in Colorful Guanajuato

  • 5 of 5
Our hosts were wonderful and even provided us with a cell phone so we could reach them easily. Casa Sierra Roja was true to the photos that appear on the VRBO website. The kitchen was well equipped and the house was cheerful, full of light, clean, and comfortable. The views from the rooftop deck were even more beautiful than those depicted in the photos! The location is great because there are grocery stores, a traditional market with fresh fruit and vegetables, restaurants, outdoor eateries,and a most picturesque walk into the old town. There's so much to see and do in this charming town and the surrounding area, that we'll return to this house and recommend it to others. It's worth mentioning that you must be in good shape to climb the forty steps from the main street to the house. It became easy to manage and helped keep us fit after feasting on the delectable Mexican cuisine.

A Guanajuato gem

  • 5 of 5
The very helpful photos truly prepared us for what to expect inside Casa Sierra Roja - a lovely, well maintained home with many colors and inviting places, especially the beautiful kitchen/dining area, the many bedrooms, and the roof garden. Exploring the town by foot from here was a pleasure, as was eating our or preparing our own meals "at home". Kim and Arturo were very responsive and helpful in answering our questions and making our stay comfortable.
