About this listing
Mexican tiled charmer w/ sierra views from rooftop terrace & balconies. Lime tree on patio--make margaritas! 3-min walk to Embajadoras market, 15-min walk to Jardín. Hi-speed WiFi & BBQ. Safe neighborhood, comfy, couples and families welcome.
Casa Sierra Roja is a spacious centrally located home that is 3 minutes by foot to the tree-lined Embajadoras area and market and a 15-minute walk to the Jardín de la Union. It is nestled in a family-oriented neighborhood off a well-lit callejón that is just 40 steps from the main street below. Amazingly, if you hike to the top of the callejón, you only have to walk another 10 minutes to reach the base of the Bufa, a protected area where there are numerous hikes and ample opportunities for scrambling and rock-climbing.
Casa Sierra Roja is spacious and well-suited for couples or a family. Kids and pets are welcome. One highlight is the Master suite on the second floor with a king-size bed, vaulted ceiling and covered balcony with glass doors and comfortable seating for two. From the balcony, there is an impressive view of the sierra, which turns a dramatic red shade at sunset.
Another star feature is the roof-top terrace with both open-air and covered areas, where you will enjoy splendid views of the city and surrounding geological wonders. From the terrace, you can plug in your computer or cook dinner on the full-size BBQ.
The lower level of Casa Sierra Roja opens onto an intimate shaded patio with a lime tree that has organic limes for picking year-round. (Fresh margaritas coming right up!) The quaint Mexican-style kitchen and connected dining room includes full amenities.
There is a foyer with seating and cozy living room areas on both levels for avid readers looking for a good corner to curl up with a book!
The house can comfortably sleep from 2 to 7 people. In addition to the Master suite, there are 2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor: 1 with a single bed and another with a trundle bed for 2. There are 3 full bathrooms: 1 on the 1st floor and 2 on the 2nd floor (including Master Suite bathroom).
Other features of Casa Sierra Roja include a full-size automatic washing machine and high-speed WiFi. For families with young children, there are gated areas to control play and child-safe balconies. Equipment for babies and small children is available upon request (collapsible crib, stroller, etc.)
For renters staying over a week, a once-a-week cleaning is included at no extra charge and additional cleaning services are available at a reasonable price.
We feel confident that guests will immediately feel at home in Casa Sierra Roja, which serves as a perfect base for exploring the magic colonial city of Guanajuato and the stunning natural areas that border the city.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 10 days in Kim and Arturo's lovely spacious home in Guanajuato. Kim was very helpful when we arrived. The neighborhood is centrally located and just two blocks from the Embajadores market, which houses the best hand-made tortillas in town. I would certainly recommend Zaragoza 4 to others.
Kim was very attentive to the many questions we had regarding our stay prior to our arrival. The house is well equipped, spacious, and comfortable. It is in a very good location, close to eateries and stores, and within walking distance to the main city attractions and a bus stop. It exceeded our expectations! The decoration of the house is beautiful, and it is nice to have ample common areas as well as private spaces in the rooms. Our 7 family members all had a great time in the house. We highly recommend this house. Kim and Arturo are great hosts
Het is een erg mooi/leuk huis, zeer ruim en compleet, er ontbreekt helemaal niets. Er is zelfs aan kleine kinderen gedacht, speelgoed, stoeltje, bedje, badje etc. Kim en Arturo zijn fijne gastheren, je mag altijd contact met ze opnemen. Wij hebben er een erg fijne week gehad en zouden het zeker weer huren.
Este viaje fue muy agradable, la casa es perfecta para grupos grandes, con espacios amplios y privados.
Tiene cerca muchos servicios para una estancia larga (tiendas, mercado, carnicería).
Kim es muy agradable y esta al tanto de lo que se necesite.
Realmente esta muy cerca del primer cuadro del centro y la caminata es muy agradable.
Muy buena opción para vacacionar!!!
Our family of 5 had a great time in Guanajuato. Kimberley met us at the house when we arrived and showed us around, plus gave us lots of advice on things to do in Guanajuato. Everything was clean and worked well. We had a great time here - really enjoyed breakfast on the deck in the mornings. The house was an easy 15-20 minute walk from the town centre with plenty to see along the way.
Thank you, Sarah. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. To clarify, Paseo de la Presa (down the steps from the house) and the Embajadoras area (a short walk just around the corner) are considered part of Guanajuato's protected historical center as determined by UNESCO. However, Guanajuato's main plaza (Jardín de la Unión) is a longer walk from our place. Thanks so much for your comments.
