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

My wife and I were travelling with our 8 month old daughter and had a wonderful stay (5 nights) here with Buzz. Buzz picked us up at the airport and since we did had'nt had dinner yet - Buzz offered to stop at a local restaurant, so we could pick up some take away. The apartment was all as advertised overlooking the beautiful city of Guanajato. We in particular enjoyed the fresh mountain air in the mornings on the beautiful patio, the walks downtown and up to mount bufa and the sounds of crickets at night time.
El departamento es muy acogedor, limpio y bonito. La cocina estaba muy bien equipada y la terracita era un lugar muy agradable con una vista preciosa, donde incluso nos visitaba un gato muy lindo. El barrio es tranquilo y no se escucha el ruido de la ciudad, que puede ser molesto. El departamento está a las afueras de Guanajuato y es necesario llegar en automóvil, lo cual no fue un problema para nosotros. Lo único que no funcionó a la perfección fue la ducha, pero servía.
Buzz y María fueron muy amables a nuestra llegada y contestaron todas nuestras preguntas. Estuvimos como en casa, ¡es mucho mejor que quedarse en un hotel!
You'll be able to relax in a beautiful and quiet neighbourhood staying at Buzz and Maria's house.The bed is good and the main living area is beautiful and spacious with lots of room for your belongings.Wake up and enjoy your morning coffee in your private breezeway.The view is outstanding ,with mountain peaks on one side and the town below you on the other.If you feel like eating at home,the kitchen is small,but very well (website hidden) and Maria are very attentive,and are there to make your stay enjoyable.Maria makes an awesome margarita and we enjoyed their company and conversation.
Buzz made us feel very welcome. He came to pick us up at the entrance of the town and took us to the closest market to buy groceries before night. The apartment was cozy, nice and clean. We do recommend this place.
Well appointed bright and airy apartment on the base of Bufa Mountain. Everything you need is provided. A nice change from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Only a short 5 minute downhill walk to the bus or a 35 minute walk to centro. The taxi ride back is $4.00. Super nice hosts are always available.
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!
