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 professionals professors, and doctors live. We are within a 20- 30 min. walk or a 5 minute bus ride to down town yet far enough away to not hear the irritating street traffic, or loud noise . The house is right at the foot of the Majestic Mount Bufa, a natural nature preserve, so you experience the serenity and tranquility of a country setting, along with the peace and quiet so important for rest, and relaxation ...The only problem is once you're here you may not want to leave.
Guanajuato is known as a walking city, with so many things to see and do along the way....Most of our guest prefer to walk once they've arrived...It takes about 5-20 minutes to markets, restaurants, street vendors, and night clubs, depending on where in the city you want to go. 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 you want in Guanajuato or the surrounding towns. And the taxi's are everywhere charging 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, If you desire we can tell you where to eat, drink and be merry. What places are an absolute must to see. And many other ideas for your enjoyment.
We treat our guests like family and will be there when you need us :) Please

Buzz and Maria were amazing hosts to stay with and I would recommend for anyone to stay with them! The views of the city were breathtaking! The rooms were so beautiful from the beautiful brick ceilings; to the tiled shower, to the ceramics light fixtures everything made us feel special. We felt as though we were staying at our own private home as we had our own kitchenette, bathroom, and entrance and exit door. Everything was clean and ready for us once we got there. Maria and Buzz gave us helpful tips about the city and the surrounding area. It was an easy walk or very short bus ride to the city center. Their neighborhood was beautiful and very clean! Buzz also emailed and called us with great directions to get to their home before we arrived. They were very organized! We look forward to staying with Buzz and Maria again!
Really enjoyed my stay here. The room was very big, quiet and extremely clean and the kitchen was small but had everything you would need. The bed was very comfortable. Although the place is on the edge of town it's a nice and easy walk into town. I also ran into town and it was a good, mainly all downhill run. I would definitely recommend this place.
Buzz and Maria were really friendly and hospitable, and took great care of us during our three days in Guanajuato. The apartment is great, with an enormous bedroom (and a positively regal bed) and a wonderful view. We got plenty of exercise walking into town and back, but we were glad to be away from tourist junketings at night, and to enjoy the clear air on the hillside. Splendid churches and museums in Guanajuato, along with fascinating public spaces. We loved it all.
Buzz&Maria are very easy going couple,we really enjoy our stay at their lovely house,the house was just located at the half mountain ,the view through the house was just gorgeous!we would surely like to stay here again next time!
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.
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.

Buzz being a San Diego California born native understands the wants and needs of foreign vacationers and Maria a born native of Mexico who speaks perfect english, both enjoy pampering their guests and individualizing care for each one according to their needs. We love people and find it fascinating to get to know each one. We are both dedicated to making your experience one you'll always remember and want to repeat.
