Our place is brand new, very clean and quiet, and is also in the safest neighborhood of the city. Speaking of safety, we're ranked one of the top 3 safest cities in the entire country. ( You will feel safe walking the streets at night.)

What makes this location so unique is it's peaceful, natural surroundings. Our guests always comment on the tranquility of our location... especially when you can walk right out your back door and hike right up to the impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa .

Staying with Buzz and Maria is more like staying with family or good friends. At one point during my stay, I was sick with a cold. Maria gave me a Mexican herbal tea and some natural honey! From the beginning to the end of our stay, they were helpful with picking us up from the gates of the city, and were very kind and helpful with information about the city itself. The view from the house alone is worth the trip. I would highly recommend them to anyone. You might come in as a guest, but you will leave as a friend.

Buzz and Maria are excellent hosts. They are personable and concerned about the well being of their guests. The studio was clean and very comfortable. The view from the "Bufa" was exquisite. I was able to keep in good shape by walking back and forth from the school I was attending - the last climb is a bit tough, but keeps you in great shape! I highly recommend Buzz and Maria's for your trip to Guanajuato!

Buzz was great! He met us from the airport and took us to his home. He was very friendly and spoken highly of by the community members. Unfortunately we didn't meet his wife. The neighborhood was quaint. It is up a steep hill but it's worth it for the view! Overall great experience.

They only draw back was the very steep hill to walk down (which we did everyday to see all the interesting neighborhood architecture). I really doubt anyone walks back to the apartment. Have to take a taxi. Once you get down the hill, there are many restaurants to choose from, a park, lake and all round beautiful scenery.

I could not in my wildest dreams have imagined a more wonderful locale to spend my time in Guanajuato. Guanajuato is a beautiful, unique city and Buzz and Maria's home balances a nice residential area, with a beautiful walking path behind their home, with easy access to the centro. While I usually walked into town, and no walk is without climbs and descents, public access is very available. Thank you Buzz and Maria for letting me join your family during my stay.
