You'll be surrounded with breath taking views of the mountains on one side and a brightly colored Panorama of the city on the other . WARNING!.... We take NO responsibility if you decide to move here.... . Your studio will have a fully equipped kitchen with private patio. Free parking right at your door with open access laundry facilities, Soap included, with your own secured private entrances. The habitat is classic colonial style....... There are hand made tiles throughout, colonial styled boveda ceiling, private bathroom with individual shower covered in handmade talavera tile, and very hot water. It is fully furnished with beautiful artisan hand carved furniture and a strong Fibre-Optic Wi-Fi signal / 20 MG's High speed Internet. It is ideal for couples and single’s who wish to stay and work on long or short term projects. It has a queen size bed, a task desk, executive chair, futon sofa bed and study corner. The view from the private patio is not only breath taking but inspirational. Enjoy living in the country while being just minutes away from the center of downtown. This, colonial refuge has a panoramic view of the city which is painted in all the colors of the rainbow on one side and the pristine Mount Bufa Preserve on the other. Our place is clean and quiet, and located in one of the safest neighborhoods in town. Speaking of safety, we're ranked among the top 3 safest cities in all of Mexico. ( Our guests have commented feeling safe while walking the streets at night)...The natural wildlife and variety of colorful native birds attract bird watchers. Many are surprised to see at their front doors occasional free range cattle, mules, horses or goats that come from the tops of the mountain to visit. (They love raw vegetables and fruit) You can walk right out your back door and hike up to those impressive rock formations of Mount Bufa & Los Picachos, especially if you love a good place to reflect, study and meditate or even hike, run, or ride a bike , this is the perfect place with mountain trails at every turn . The air up here is clean and unpolluted with plenty of sunshine. Guanajuato also sponsors many sporting events such as car, foot, bike and swimming races, along many other activities that will capture your attention. So you can choose to be rejuvenated and refreshed by enjoying our protected local state parks. Or take a 10-15 minute bus or taxi ride to the center of town for theaters, restaurants, museums, nightclubs, coffee houses and the list goes on and on. There is literally a revolving calendar of live music, concerts , theater performances. along with many street artists , mimes and musicians who entertain passer's by both day and night... Especially during the month of October when we celebrate our International Cervantino Festival. It's the Mardi Gras of Mexico...(Very Exciting) With hosts from all around the world, drawing travelers and curiosity seekers . Yes Guanajuato has been considered an international treasure. It is a UNESCO city that is under constant restoration and preservation. There's only two stop lights in the whole city with cars, people on horseback , festivals and frequent encounters with parades of indigenous Indians in their ancient native costumes that date back to before the days of Cortez and Montezuma. Most of the native people have been here for generations which make them so fascinating to observe and get to know. So if you want a taste of the real Mexico look no further.... W--hich is our greatest complaint........We frequently hear at the end of our guests visits, ' But I don't want to leave'.................., because of this many have stayed and are now our neighbors . So beware!! You may fall in love! During your stay you can arrange for local or more extensive sight seeing tours, hot spring outings, hikes to local forested mountains, fresh water fishing, culinary, art or cultural tours... If you enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, then take a 20 minute stroll into town passing tranquil streets, ancient plazas, callejons, and outdoor markets, that literally transport you back to the colonial days of Old Mexico. Alfredo's Market, Hamburger stand and groceries are located just a few blocks away with many nearby street side vendors selling the freshest foods at the best prices......and if you like coffee, our next door neighbor is an award winning roaster with a variety of coffees and teas that will hook you at first sip. He personally stands there with a stop watch when it's roasting time. And his famous Beso Negro .... will keep you coming back. . More

Buzz's suite was very comfortable and well located in a quiet area about a 25 minute walk from the historic downtown. A bus ride costs 5 pesos, a taxi 50 pesos. Just a 5 minute walk away is Cafe Tal and Mexico Lindo y Sabroso.

About the neighbourhood
We are located on the Presa de la Olla side of the Panoramica. Take Calle Presa de la Olla to Callejon de San Juan de Dios turn right, go to the top, turn left onto the Panoramica, go 100 yards to a blue house on the corner and turn right up the hill, go to the very top of the hill and make a hard left turn and continue to go up til you reach a stone paved road to the right. My home which is white , orange and blue is located at the top, you can't miss it.. We are located in Colonia Universitario..You can't miss it....
Getting around
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 10-20 minutes to markets, restaurants, street vendors, and night clubs, depending on where you are going. We recommend you bring along some good walking shoes since that is the best mode of transportation here. There are inclines, hills and steps at basically every turn so be prepared to burn calories as you go from one place to the other. If you prefer to ride instead of walk 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 $.25 USD you can virtually go anywhere in the city. And the taxi's are everywhe
