Off-the-grid, rustic but spacious and self-sufficient (with own electrical system) with everything you need for cooking. Interior shower (1 full bath + ensuite 1/2 bath). Woodstove, brand new big fridge. Ideal location, very quiet, no traffic, flat and shallow water, ideal for young families. Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms with queen size beds, and big living room can accommodate kids. Two first weeks of July available at $1500/week, or $800/week in June and September.

  • Martine was just wonderful. Here are only some reasons why:
    When I arrived at her house in Vancouver she drew me a map of the best shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood. She even took me to local hidden clothing stores.
    And her house is just beautiful furnited with tasteful and detailed decor. Here you can have both privacy and also the opportunity to socialize. It was so nice to chat with Martine and the international student from Italy who has been living there for a longer time. (By the way he made the best Tiramisu I've ever eaten!)
    I truly hope to stay there again! Thanks for all your help and wonderful six weeks.

    Anne, you are truly missed! We sure hope to see you again also! Maybe in Mexico! And sorry about the sad weather!

  • Martine's house was exactly as described. The views from the balcony and roof were great and a perfect place to hang out in early morning and for sundowners. The house is a little way outside of the center but really just a 15 minute downhill walk. Taxis and local buses are cheap and easy to get on the way back although we also walked several times too. Martine was a great host and made sure we got to the house on our arrival and helped with arranging transport. Would definitely recommend this house.

  • Our stay in this house was perfect! We enjoyed the comfortable beds and the amazing views from the porch. The kitchen is beautiful and the bathrooms spacious. We would love to stay here again. The neighbor was so friendly.

  • It was great staying at Martine's house. It's a beautiful house with everything one may need to stay comfortably in Guanajuato. The distance to town is fairly short and, if you don't want to walk, the bus passes every ten minutes at the bus stop, a short walk away. Beds are comfortable and everything works in perfect order.

    Communication was very easy and Martine's caretaker was available in case we needed anything.

    Very good experience. Will come back for sure. Super recommended!

  • We stayed in Martine house, it's a beautiful traditional, colorful house. It's really near to awesome places in Guanajuato. About the services: Wi-Fi, Dish, Hot water, Books, all you could need to have a really nice experience.

    One of the things i enjoyed there, was the amazing view in the morning.

    Martine was all the time in contact, she was giving us information we possibly need, she's so nice.

    I truly recommend this place. If you are thinking to stay in Guanajuato, this is an amazing house to enjoy with your friends.

  • I booked the main floor of Martine's house for my parents and sister to stay in while visiting Vancouver. Martine answered questions prior to their arrival, welcomed us, and gave a tour upon arrival. Everything was very clean, and beds were comfortable. My family really appreciated how bright the house was, its convenient location to the stores on Hastings street, and the fact that they could barely hear anything from the apartment downstairs. As my parents are in their 80's and a little wobbly on their feet, the entrance stairs gave us some cause for concern because they are steep...but that is just the nature of this old house :)

    I would be happy to book this house again for guests visiting from out of town. Thanks Martine for your part in making my family's visit an awesome one :)

  • Martine was very helpful and accommodating on short notice. Her place is very comfortable and in a convenient location situated within Hastings-Sunrise.

  • We had a good stay at Martine's Place. Clean room and bath, very confy bed. Good neighborhood with graet eating locations in 10' walking distance at East Hastings St. Bus ride downtown takes 15 - 20', bus stop in 2' walking distance. If you don't mind her cute little dog (Basil) it's a good place to stay.

  • Martine was a fabulous host! She even stayed up past midnight because my train was delayed and ordered me any early morning taxi for my departure. Lovely room, comfortable bed and very friendly dog. Easy to get downtown by bus and shops & restaurants just a short walk away. Martine was also great with suggestions.

  • We had a wonderful time in Guanajuato! Martine met us at the house to give us a tour & show us how everything worked. She even took the time to explain where to get some food essentials. The house was clean & even more beautiful than the pictures. The only problem we had was getting up the narrow one way road the day we arrived. Other than that our stay was perfect!

    Thanks Martine!

About
Originally from rural Quebec (1 1/2 hour from Quebec City), I share my time between Vancouver, Savary Island and Guanajuato. I'm an Artist Painter/Scenic Painter, with a love for music, decorating, and good food. During my travels, I found that a home away from home was important, and that's what I want to provide for people. I have a daughter in her 20's and her and I shared custody of a very loving MinPin Chihuahua, until they both moved to Montreal. Luckily while in Guanajuato, Basil the dog adopted me. Life is very short. Why not live it! I lived in Germany in my 20's, where my daugher was born, so I understand a certain level of German. And of course, I make my way in Spanish.
