About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to the biggest bargain in Guanajuato vacation rentals! Perfect for one or two people, our newly renovated two-room apartment is bright, quiet, spacious, and secure.

La Casa Rosa apartment is located on a quiet, private street in the La Presa neighborhood of Guanajuato. La Presa is the quietest neighborhood in town, and an easy fifteen-minute stroll from downtown. If you're planning to study Spanish here, all the language schools are within walking distance. If you're just taking it easy, three of the best restaurants in town are less than ten minutes away.

A private entrance and a plant-lined patio lead to your apartment. The large main room is the living, dining, and kitchen area, with rustic but comfortable Mexican furnishings, all modern appliances, and a view overlooking the garden. (Help yourself to grapefruit from our tree!) Two steps across a small breezeway is the bedroom, which is furnished with a queen-size bed, a spacious wardrobe, and a nightstand. The bathroom is decorated with traditional Mexican talavera tile.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a four-burner gas stove and oven, a refrigerator, a microwave, a coffee maker, dishes, pots and pans, and complimentary purified water. Wireless broadband Internet service is available at no extra charge if you bring your own WiFi-equipped laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Secure off-street parking is available.

Your hosts live right next door. He's American, she's Mexican, and we're both bilingual. We're happy to offer tips on Guanajuato restaurants, language schools, and things to see and do around town.

La Casa Rosa apartment is self-service. We supply fresh linens weekly. Smoking on the patio only, please.

A word about our town: Guanajuato is the ideal vacation spot for the visitor who wants to see the ''real'' Mexico. Though large enough to offer a wealth of museums, restaurants, and shopping, this historic colonial city is also small enough to be friendly and accessible to the first-time visitor. It's the perfect place to learn Spanish, too, either at the University of Guanajuato or at a number of independent language schools. The three-week International Cervantino Festival in October is the biggest and most important cultural festival in all of Latin America.

Special discount rates are available for monthly or longer-term stays. To inquire, click the ''Send email" link to the right of the photos above.

We’ll say it again: You won't find a better deal on a one-bedroom vacation rental in central Guanajuato.

👍🏻 Lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

Don and Gela were wonderful hosts. They are both bilingual so you can communicate in English or Spanish. They were eager to help us understand how to get around Guanajuato. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and the kitchen has just enough pots and utensils for whatever you want to cook. I would stay there again if I return to Guanajuato and I hope to!

A very quiet, tidy, and comfortable apartment for one or two peoplle!

  • 5 of 5

Don and his wife live on-site and were very helpful with our questions but gave us plenty of privacy. There’s a lovely patio/garden area with a table and chairs to enjoy being outside. It was a great experience!

This house was quiet, clean and private. It was clean and had all of the necessary amenities. The only thing we wish it had was a breezeway between the bedroom and the kitchen/bathroom. We were there for 4 weeks to learn Spanish. While the walk to town was about 20-25 minutes, it was a pleasant way to start every morning. If your not heading into town, there is plenty around La Presa. Don was very friendly and gave us our privacy. He was also helpful with local landmarks and places to eat. I'd recommend this to anyone staying in Guanajuato.

Fun & friendly

  • 5 of 5

We had only a short stay in Guanajuato, but this was a great place to spend it. Don & Gela were helpful and a wealth of information. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The city itself is quirky and fun. Lots to see and do, easy access to public transportation. I highly recommend this city and this casita.

Don and Gela were amazing hosts! The house looks just like the photos. It is nice and clean, surrounded by green.

Gela gave us homemade butter, honey and pancakes. What else can I say? It filled our hearts with joy!

Guanajuato is an amazing city, full of color and history. The house is located on the top of a hill. We could see that it could be an inconvenience for those who don't like or cannot walk that much. A cab can fix that issue anyway.

I would definitely recommend this apartment and Guanajuato to anyone. The food is delicious, weather is perfect and the people make the best of it.

We know we will be back and when it happens it will be to La Casa Rosa.

Study Spanish

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in Guanajuato. I was there to study Spanish and to do some sightseeing. I felt very secure as a single female traveling alone. The neighborhood was quiet. The apartment was comfortable and I used the patio some days to eat and study. The apartment was up a slight incline so I recommend it to people in shape or those who don't mind taking a taxi. Taxi's are not expensive and there is a bus stop right at the bottom of the hill. Buses are 5 pesos. The apartment was clean, well maintained and the kitchen window overlooked a small garden. Don and Gela were very nice and helpful. I would rent the apartment again should I return to Guanajuato. In the winter it is cold at night and I recommend bringing warm clothes.
