You are looking at a very large and opulent, 3 bedroom colonial house on one of the most famous streets in Guanajuato - perfect for a family or friends who are travelling together.

The Space

Just steps from the Alhóndiga de Granaditas, Plazuela San Fernando, Diego Rivera Museum and the Mercado Hidalgo and a few minutes walk to Plaza de la Paz, Teatro Juarez and the Jardin Union, the house is hugely comfortable, brightly colored, and filled with art from all over the world. Also nearby are delicious restaurants, folk art stores, cafes, galleries, museums, and 3 plazas where spontaneous performance and/or music frequently occur.

With over 3,000 square feet of living space, the house includes an overly large living room with two sitting areas, street view balcony, formal dining room, TV room, kitchen with breakfast area, three spacious bedrooms, upstairs patio, rooftop observation deck, 2 master bathrooms and one ½ bath. Also included in the rental are wifi, satellite TV, DVD player, drinking water, well-equipped kitchen, linens and daily maid service.

This house is situated on a main street making it convenient for taxi service and easy and safe walking just right outside the door. On many evenings, the famous estudiantinas walk past the house on their callejoneadas filling the house with robust songs and music – an experience that never fails to draw you out onto the balcony to wave at the parade of joyous followers.

Getting around

The house is at the end of calle Positos near the Alhóndiga and around the corner from the Mercodo Hildago. Calle Positos houses a number of museums, most famously the Museo Diego Rivera - the house where Rivera grew up as a child. El Jardin Union, Teatro Juarez, Plaza de la Paz, and the Basilica are all within a 5 minute walk. Nearby are several good restaurants, folk art stores, convenience stores and a large grocery store.

Other Things to Note

True to typical Guanajuato architecture, this is a three-story house with the main living areas on the 2nd and 3rd levels. The stairways are made of stone and plenty wide with a fairly low rise and railings, however people who have limited mobility may be challenged with so many steps.

  • Anne-Marie and Ethan are amazing hosts! They greeted us at night as we drove in from another city to make sure we found the house OK. The home itself is spectacular and you can tell a lot time and care has been put into the home to make it so gorgeous. Ethan checked in on us periodically to make sure we were doing good and had daily cleaning at the house--at no extra charge. Anne-Marie was gracious enough to take some of my family to the airport! Wow.

    Each floor is unique, housing wonderful pieces of art from around the world. The kitchen, dining room and living room are well designed and decorated (like everything else in the house). We cooked a few times in the kitchen with food from the market a few blocks away from the house.

    The location of the house is as good as you can get in Guanajuato. You can walk to everything that is of importance in the city. The most spectacular thing about the home is that it is literally right next to the Halondiga, a historical building that is at the forefront of Mexican history.

    The bedrooms on the 3rd floor are GORGEOUS and spacious--with the most comfortable beds I have slept on in a long time! We especially loved the outdoor/indoor feel of the all the floors--including the 3rd.

    And on the 4th floor you have a magnificent view of the city!
