We wanted a property as a home for our 6 weeks in Guanajuato, and that is what we had here. The living area and bedrooms are spacious and well equipped and the garden and patio area provided lovely shaded seating areas for quiet moments. We specifically wanted the space that being out of the centre gave us, as we travelled with out eight year old boy so did not want to be in a small city centre apartment.
Pros - easy access into the centre of town on the bus (stop about 4 minutes walk away)
Local shops where we were able to buy all our everyday groceries, including a greengrocer and butcher with good fresh produce and an Oxxo for supermarket goods. The big Comercial Mexicana is a short taxi ride away and it is easy to hail a taxi from the main road (at the bus stop). A taxi also cuts the journey time into town from about 15 minutes on the bus to about 5 minutes.
Within the house, lovely comfortable beds, good supply of hot water for showers (once you work out the trick to the boiler (turn hot water on, run for a minute, turn off and run again, then it stays hot!). Lots of places to sit and relax, both indoors and in the garden, which provides different sunny and shaded areas at different times of day. The wi-fi quality and availability were both excellent.
Cons - small kitchen. It is very well equipped, but has limited worktop space for food preparation. A minor point is that there is no comfy sofa to really relax on in the living areas, but with so much to do, this was never a problem for us. There are two snuggler chairs in the tv area where you can relax. We never watched tv, so cannot comment on the reception.
Location - the property is away from the main road, on a quiet private cup-de-sac with half a dozen other properties. It is close to the church, so you do hear the bells from the clock and for mass. The access up to the property is relatively steep and uneven, so I would not recommend it for someone with limited mobility without a car.
