This Historical Mexican, colonial refuge has a panoramic view of the colorful European like town of Guanajuato on one side and the natural, pristine Mountain Preserve and on the other. Our place is brand new, very clean and quiet, and is in a very safe neighborhood.

What makes this location so unique is it's peaceful, natural surroundings, especially when you can walk right out your back door and hike right up to the impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa . Plus you're surrounded by an incredible array of many excellent restaurants, shops, and art galleries that are only minutes away;
So you can choose to be rejuvenated and refreshed by the ambiance of natural surroundings. Or take a 5-10 minute bus or taxi ride to the center of town for theaters, restaurants, museums, nightclubs, bistros and the many other fun things to do. We also will arrange for local or more extensive sight seeing tours, hot spring outings, hikes to local forested mountains, culinary, art or cultural tours. Just let us know ahead of time.
If you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, then simply take a stroll into town passing tranquil streets, ancient plazas, callejons, and outdoor markets, that will literally transport you back to the colonial days of Old Mexico. Alfredo's Market, Hamburger stand and groceries are located just a few blocks away with many nearby street side vendors selling the freshest foods at the best prices......What we offer is unlike any place else in Guanajuato. All our guests tell us how they will always treasure the memories they made while they were here. You will just have to experience it for yourself to see what they mean. For one of the best vacations you'll ever have, come stay with us and experience Beautiful Guanajuato. We are here to serve you.........Please, feel free to call if you have any questions in English or Spanish.

Interaction with Guests

We love people......And we love to interact with our guests. But we're careful not to smother our guests with too much attention. We treat each guest as individuals and look for opportunities to go out of our way to spend some social time over dinner, margaritas or just causal conversation depending on availability and circumstances. So we look forward to getting to know each new guest on their own terms. Don't worry about the communication. We both speak almost perfect English and Spanish and we'll give you a crash course on the city, and attractions ....Where to go, what to do, where to eat, and all the things you don't want to miss while you are here. Or if you wish to just unwind, relax and enjoy the peace, quiet and tranquility of the natural surroundings here at the foot of Mount Bufa Preserve your welcome....There's no place like it on earth .....You'll love it here...

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is a highly secured area with security patrols regularly monitoring the area several times daily. It is located in the exclusive area of the city where professors, doctors and professionals live. We are within a 20 min. walk or a 5 minute ride to the center of town yet far enough away that you hear no irritating street traffic, or loud noise of any sort. Our location is right at the foot of the Majestic Mount Bufa, a natural nature preserve, so you get the serenity and tranquility of a country setting, along with the peace and quiet so important for our vacationers to rest, relax and recuperate....Our only problem is once people check they don't want to leave

Getting around

Guanajuato is known as a walking town, with so many things to see and do along the way....Most of our guest prefer walking once they've arrived...It takes about 5-20 minutes to markets, restaurants, street vendors, and night clubs, depending on where you are going. We have an excellent bus transit system that runs every 10 minutes to all parts of the city. So for 5 pesos which is about $.40 USD you can virtually go anywhere in the city. And the taxi's are everywhere and they charge around 35-40 pesos which is around $3.20 USD. It's very easy to get around and enjoy the many attractions all over town, Stay with us and you will see why Guanajuato is the Enchanted City......

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My boyfriend wanted to take me to Mexico for Valentine’s long weekend. We choose Guanajuato
    and when we went onto airbnb and came across Buzz and Maria’s place, we knew that was it. We
    were looking at hotels but Buzz and Maria’s was what we needed. Buzz picked us up at the airport
    and brought us to the house. He was telling/ showing us things/ places along the way. When we got
    there, I was blown away. My sweet boyfriend asked the hosts to have the room arranged with calla
    lilies (my favorite flowers). Maria went overboard; there were cut calla lilies in the room, other
    beautiful flowers, live lilies on the patio, on the balcony, balloons and much more. My boyfriend
    worked this out with Buzz and Maria by email and everything was wonderful including the dinner
    reservation Buzz had made for us in a truly memorable Casa Colorada with an amazing view. Buzz and
    Maria set up times for taxis to pick us up. When a taxi show up for our event on Valentine’s,
    Buzz drove us there himself despite his hectic schedule. On our morning of return, the taxi didn't
    arrive on time at 4am. Maria was up on her own calling them to check on status.

    The room was exactly what we needed and having the kitchenette was perfect. Buzz gave us recommendations
    on places to go to and everyone was great. The town of Guanajuato was great, people were friendly, food
    was good and the views were beautiful. We were there four days and did not see everything but that gives
    us a reason to go back and I think we will later on. Thank you Buzz and Maria, our time that couldn’t
    have been better! Cosita, your cat was cute and very friendly. Shyam fed her some eggs and water one one
    of the nights. Hope that was ok.

    These hosts are very professional and yet have a lot of warmth in treating their guests as if they
    were their own family. When we visit GTO next time, we will stay them again and would recommend them to
    any visitors in a heartbeat.

    Warm Regards,
    Kristina (and my boyfriend Shyam)

  • We enjoyed our stay at Buzz and Maria's place. The apartment was clean, well furnished and the brick ceiling was amazing! It was large and had a nice kitchen that was separated by a partially enclosed patio with an excellent view of the city and the mountains.

    When we arrived and checked in with Buzz he was nice enough to drive us from the apartment into town and point out some of the good restaurants and coffee shops we should try out. We really enjoyed a few of his recommendations and went back to them more than once during our stay.

    Their place is at the edge of town and it is a bit of a walk to get to the downtown area but we did do the walk a number of times and it wasn't too bad. There are options for the bus or cab's too and on the days when we were tired from walking all day we would opt for public transportation to get back up the hill.

    They truly have a unique place! Buzz got a chance to show me around and they actually have three separate apartments in their house... a large one that we stayed in, a medium sized studio unit and a small unit for one person.

    If you're planning a trip to Guanajuato I would definitely recommend checking out all of their listings, it's a great place to stay.

  • We had the pleasure of meeting Buzz, who was both attentive and helpful. The slightly remote location made for ideal relaxation and private getaway. It was a long terrific walk, as in, we burned a few calories since we 'Ate our way' through the beautiful city of Guanajuato. The apartment had everything we needed. The kitchen and outdoor patio were two amenities we used every day. Highly recomendable.

  • Everything was simple perfect, Buzz and Maria were great! Buzz was right, the only problem was we didn't want to leave! The view of mountains on one side and the city on the other was simple amazing, great way to start and end the day. We told Buzz we wanted to cook and the kitchen is not only fully equipped, but he also provided us with spices, condiments, and everything essential for us to cook! it was great. The apartment was beautiful and super clean. Already planning on going back. Hopefully soon!

  • Very Comfortable and Welcoming! My friend and I were very pleased with the accommodations provided by Buzz and Maria. The location makes for a few great things - beautiful scenic views, privacy, and a great work out when walking up the hill. I liked that the location wasn't in the city, but close enough to get to either by foot, bus or cab. I had a very early arrival time and it was nice that Buzz was up at the early hour to welcome us. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again the next time I plan a trip to Guanajuato.

  • Buzz & Maria were great hosts during our weekend stay in Guanajuato. Lovely welcome, even throughout we arrived very late.
    The house is absolutely amazing, great views over the city, very well maintained and a delight to stay. Very short distance walk into the old center of Guanajuato.

    Would definitely recommend!

  • Wonderful apartment and great hosts! We were barely at the apartment as so much was going on in town (which is just a short, pretty walk away). Everything was exactly as described in the advertisement. Everything was clean and well presented. Would happily recommend others to stay here.

    September 2013
  • It has been a pleasure to stay at Buzz and Maria's. The location was perfect for us - not far from city centro yet on the edge of the city. The accommodations were perfect - exactly as depicted and described. Most of all Buzz and Maria were most accommodating. They were always available when we needed them but never obtrusive. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Thank you Buzz and Maria.

  • We love, love, love, Guanajuato and this place! There's so much to do in Guanajuato and this was a fantastic place to stay. It's a nice, quiet and safe neighborhood. We intended to only stay 3 nights, but we ended up staying 5 nights. Buzz and Maria were very flexible in accommodating our needs. We felt so comfortable in this beautifully decorated and clean place! We felt at home and were treated like family by our hosts. This place is very private with gorgeous views. It's away from the hustle and bustle of town, yet close enough to catch a bus or taxi. We actually walked to and fro town several times. The steep hills gave us a good workout though. We had the best experience of Guanajuato and truly enjoyed our stay with Buzz and Maria. We're ready to do it again as soon as possible. We highly recommend this place and know you will be very pleased. It's a great place to experience the beauty of Mexico and all it has to offer. Thank you Buzz and Maria for everything, especially the insightful tips of where to go and places to eat. If you're a coffee lover, you can't miss stopping by "El Cafetal." We enjoyed meeting our neighbors the last night we were there and spending time together.
