Home was really good, every detail was cared and the location of the house just in the middle of city center with son parking spaces next to it. Recommended 100%! Maria was very nice as well and received us even late.

Highly recommend this wonderful apartment in city center.

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed calling this apartment "home" for a month in beautiful Guanajuato city. Phil and Maria were helpful in arranging transportation to the airport and with giving information about the city. The apartment is spacious, clean, well appointed and comfortable. The private rooftop has magnificent views. Very well located right in the middle of the city center, easy walk to the Juarez Theater, the Jardin, historic churches, many restaurants, the university, etc. We would love to come back!

It's rare to find a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom place in GTO. The apartment has everything you need, even for an extended stay. Maria and Phil are great hosts.

Perfect Location, perfect facility, perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Walking distance to many historical buildings, shopping & tunnels. We spent four nights here and we were sorry we had to leave so soon. There is something new to see and do everyday. Taxi, tacos, convenience store all located within steps of the entrance and restaurants are abundant.

Maria & Philip are wonderful hosts who are amazing! Loved Philip’s stories and Maria’s humor. Very gracious and interesting people.

Entrance to the home can be challenging.i would recommend paying someone to haul your luggage up. At 64 & 60, we were able to climb the stairs but hauling the luggage was hard. It is well worth it!

Thank you Philip & Maria for an amazing time!

Worth it!

  • 5 of 5

Very good location and friendly 23 steps. It was nice, clean, and weell-equipped. It was a hot week so it got a bit hot but nothing uncomfortable. We loved it and highly recommended. The owner lives next door in case, but we needed nothing. I would definitely stay here again.

Simply the Best!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by our hosts who assisted us with settling into the lovely apartment. The location is perfect as it is very central to many of the main attractions.

The apartment is simply gorgeous, well-appointed, and designed for accommodating two couples or parties since the bedrooms are on each side of the common living area. The entire place is tastefully decorated.

The most spectacular feature is the large rooftop terrace with sweeping views.

The only thing that tops these accommodations is the incredible service provided by the owners who went out of their way to introduce us to beautiful Guanajuato and show us where everything is located. They are very friendly, welcoming and have amazing knowledge of the area.

Simply the best stay of our extensive travels!

Guanajuato is a cultural and colonial Gem located in the central highlands of Mexico. It has been described as an Italian hill town in Mexico although its roots are of course Spanish. It is a city tailor made for walking with many pedestrian only streets. Much of the traffic is in unique arteries beneath the city where the now diverted river used to flow. Guanajuato is a Unesco world heritage sight and uses funding from Unesco to keep the city very clean and preserved. There are many beautifully preserved colonial buildings and Churches. Many museums including the Alhondiga de Granaditas the site of the first battle of the Mexican revolution in 1810. The city is full of restaurants and bars too many to count but a variety to suit all palates Guanajuato is also home to the International Festival Cervantino The most important music,art and drama festival in the Americas. The festival takes place for most of October. Many consider Guanajuato to have the best climate in the world. There are very few days you don't wake up to sunshine it rarely gets hotter than 85f and during the rainy season most of the rain comes in 1 or 2 hour thunderstorms usually when you are sleeping
