About Susan Pataky
Endre and I are Calgary, Canada based with a love to travel. We discovered Guanajuato in December 2012 and it was love at first sight. The culture, colours, vibrancy and driving throughout the tunnels sealed the deal. Two months later we returned to look for property as and 'exit strategy' and found Carrizo 2. Endre is a project manager and designed the renovation of this four story older building. Translating the drawings into Spanish, he then brought on an exceptional architect from Leon and the two worked tirelessly on this project. Spending about a 1/3 of each month in Guanajuato, together they sourced all the materials purchased locally with the exception of some items brought down from Ikea. You will notice the porcelain tiles from Italy, custom made doors, marble sinks, pillow top beds.
Susan Pataky purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Susan Pataky chose Zona Centro
The pleasure of walking and discovering the callejones (narrow alleyways) gives you an understanding of neighbourhoods connected by plazas full of life and colour. Due to the geography of this small city, many homes are reachable only by dozens of steps. We sought out a home close to the street level so when your taxi dropped you off, it was only a few steps, not a hundred to your front door. Sitting on rooftop terrace in the evening, the spectacular view of the city in the setting sun is a perfect spot for your bbq'd dinner. Head down to walk to the city centre and enjoy the estudiantinas (singing minstrels), street food vendors and outdoor patios.
What makes this Apartment unique
We both need to work remotely while away therefore each floor has individual high speed wifi. The water is heated via solar panels and all lighting is LED. Sky TV offers over a hundred channels. The highlight is the Terrace. With a rooftop garden, two dining areas and lounge seating, this is the perfect spot to relax after your day of exploring. A rooftop washroom saves a trip back to your apartment and if you need, there is a washing machine with lines to dry your clothes.

Beautiful home in central location
We loved the city of Guanajuato. Susan’s home is walking district from the center of the city and there are tons of markets across the street if you want to buy a street taco. She provides all you need for your stay - including ear plugs if you are sensitive to the sounds of the City. There is a great outdoor patio to hang out on at night. We had a great experience!
The property was extremely clean with all necessary conveniences
Perfect for our first visit..
Everything was very good, I just think you should include air conditioning because May was terribly hot and it was difficult to sleep because the street is extremely noisy and we couldn't sleep, not even with the earplugs, but the rest was excellent
Thank you for your observations. We would like to install air conditioning but most streets do not have enough power coming to the buildings from CFE. Our callejon does not have enough power to run an air conditioner. The fan works somewhat but I agree, not on our hottest days.
In the future, we will be installing double paned glass windows from Komerling which will cut down the heat coming in and keep most of the noise out.
Property looks juts like in the pictures. Very clean and well taken care of.
Great experience. The house accommodated 7 people without a problem. Owners were very welcoming,
Lovely property with great location
Three of us 70+ ladies stayed in the Rumba suite at Casa Terraza. The apartment was clean, and well-maintained. Copelia was able to answer our questions about the area, etc. There was a booklet provides that had a wealth of information about the area, with good tips on how much to pay for the bus, taxis, etc.
We were only a few blocks from the real center of Guanajuato, and for only 40 pesos (less than $2.50 dl at the current exchange rate), we took the taxi a lot of places. For anyone with difficulty walking any distance, the taxi is a God-send. There are stairs to negotiate - first from the street up to the main door, and then up to the actual apartment. The roof top patio was lovely. Well appointed, with a great view. The tacos at a little stand across the street at the Glorieta were delicious, as was the birria at the stand directly in front (on the weekend) We would highly recommend this facility, and if we return to Guanajuato, would rent it again. In fact, we would love to come and stay the a month, if possible, in the future. Found a lovely little cafe Los Campos in the Plaza Baratillo. Actually within walking distance - a few blocks. So many things to see within walking distance, but too many to list here.
Great Shared Space, Real Neighborhood
5 of us shared this 3 bedroom apartment in February. We took a taxi from the bus station and found the apartment immediately across the roundabout. It is only 15 steps up to the building but depending on your physical condition be warned that this apartment is up 3 more flights of stairs and then the terrace up another. The shared living space was very large and comfortable. Please notice that the 3rd bedroom has to be entered into in order to go into either of the other two bedrooms so this space might be better for two couples. There was a slight sewer smell in the bedroom without a window and the bathroom floor was usually wet after a shower because the water did not stay in the shower area. Some nights were noisy, it seemed to depend on what was going on in the bar that is located at the bottom of the outside stairs. Housekeeping could have been a little better. It is about a 15 minute walk to Centro through a busy part of Avenue Juarez but if you turn left and go up the hill a bit there is a nice wide not crowded street that takes you most of the way into town. Susan was very helpful with questions and recommendations. Taxis were easy to get. The terrace was very comfortable with a great view. The beds were also very comfortable. We enjoyed showing Guanajuato to our friends.
