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 for example, 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 surrounding areas....Where to go, what to do, where to eat, and all the attractions you won'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...
Our neighborhood is unique, It is a highly secure 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 loud noise or street traffic. 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..
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,
We treat our guests like family and will be there when you need us :) Please
Inform us of any difficulties you may have, and take care of the room as if it were your own . Our policy is to treat others as you would want to be treated. We will exert ourselves to pamper you, and do whatever it takes to make yours a dream vacation.
I stayed 4 nights at this place. Guanajuato is wonderful and I really enjoyed my stay there. The owner of this place is really nice and friendly. It's not located in the historic centre and it will take you 20-25 minutes to walk to the centre and it's easy by bus. My room was really small and has no view at all, but it was cheap. The place is clean and quiet.
Well if you want a quit place to stay with a friendly owner, this is a good place. If you want a place near the bars and the historic center this is not the place
My stay with Buzz and Maria was just the best! The room was very clean and delightfully decorated. It was very safe and secure. Both were very helpful of places to see and things to do. I loved the invigorating walk to and from town and the stunning vistas.
I had a bit of a challenging taxi ride from Leon late in the evening and hadn't eaten for many hours. Maria provided me a light meal upon arrival which was very, very welcome.
If you're headed to Guanajuato you will love this place!
This couple is really, really nice. Buzz picked me up from the bus terminal and Maria invited me to their wonderful dinner in the first day. That was really precious and happy experience for me.
What I liked most was that these two people provided me everything I needed, but they never interruped my schedule. For example, I got precious information about the best tacos and cafe in the town that is available only from locals. If you once experience, you will know that everything they told you is just true.
Buzz speaks perfect English, and Maria has no problem with communicating. Both of them are very courteous and kind.
The talks with Buzz were so interesting. I really laughed a lot- I love his sense of humor! And he always cared about me with plates and fork so that I didn't have to go to kitchen to have breakfast.
Maria is really friendly, and she did her best to let me enjoy Guanajuato. Everytime she cared about my food, sometimes she gave me snacks, and left kind memos for me. She helped me to have cultural experience until the very last moment.
In some ways they are very professional; they know what guest would need, so they give all the advices and stuffs in the right time and places. At the same time they are very friendly.
I can say that this couple will be just enough reason to go back to Guanajuato. I really miss them.
The room is completely seperated from the space of hosts or other guests but is in same building; I felt really comfortable with this structure, because the room is really independent and at the same time I felt very safe.
Room is not very big but it has everything, like bathroom, closet and even coffee maker and some tea-bags. There's no refrigerator in the room, but if you ask, I am sure they will let you use theirs. There is a single bed which is really comfortable and clean. But you have to wait for some minutes to use hot water to take a shower, and the water pressure is not very high. But I didn't feel uncomfortable with shower.
Well, it is not very close from the centro; it would take about 30 minutes by walking. But it is worth, because there is a market named 'Embajadoras' and there are some really nice bars selling tacos or fresh juices in front of the market. And the road to centro is also nice. If you take a bus, it would take 10-15 minutes because the buses don't run very fast(5 pesos).
The location of the house itself is little bit hilly; you have to walk up some steps and the streets about around 10 minutes. But it was okay for me. It would be okay if you don't hurry and take some time to walk. :)
Overall, I do recommend this airbnb. It was just amazing experience for me.
Buzz and Maria are a very warm and welcoming couple who will help you with any needs but leave you to get on with your own thing if you prefer.
The room is compact and clean and the bathroom is beautifully tiled and fresh.
The house is some way from Centro but no more than a 15-20 minute walk, most of it along pleasant streets. Or you can catch the bus.
The Presa de Olla area is one of the best parts of the town and there are a number of very good restaurants all within easy walking.
After the hustle and bustle of the town there is real sense of relaxation returning to the house each evening. And if you are really keen there is some good walking in unspoilt countryside not too far away.
Buzz and Maria's room offers access to all the sites and quiet relaxation if you want it. Thanks to you both for having me: I had a great time.
A great little room with a very comfortable bed that was super clean. Positioned high up on the mountainside, with great views over the town. A coffee machine was provided with a selection of coffee and teas. Perfect little bolt hole for one.
Buzz and Maria were wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to make me feel comfortable and to attend to my needs. They upgraded me to a larger room with a view, so I can't speak to what it's like to stay in this particular space (One Person Hideaway). Guanajuato is amazing; Buzz and Maria's neighborhood is wonderful, the views are incredible, and the area very quiet.
