Casa Isabel is a unique, solar powered Mexican-style home located in Guanajuato’s historic hilltop neighbourhood, Callejon Tecolote. The architecturally interesting home is within easy access of a large choice of outdoor cafes, museums, galleries, nightclubs, restaurants, boutiques, shops, parks, churches, monuments and language schools.
Casa Isabel is a mix of traditional Mexican flair and modern contemporary style. High, wooden beamed ceilings, saltillo tile floors, talavera ceramic tile, ornate wrought iron fixtures and antique Spanish furniture is accented by whimsical folk art, original sculptures and award-winning photography.
Casa Isabel has 2 baths and a master bedroom with a private entrance opening onto a fully equipped kitchenette allowing guests to share the space with friends or family and maintain a sense of privacy. The spacious open-concept living room and kitchen lead to a private balcony through dramatic arched doors. The rooftop terrace and upper level of the home have fabulous views of the surrounding city and mountains.
Guanajuato was declared a UNESCO city in 1988, and for good reason. The entire city is a maze of colourful buildings, abandoned and working silver mines connected by pedestrian-only streets, tunnels and alleyways located two hours from Queretaro and Zacatecas and midway between Mexico DF and Guadalajara.
Guanajuato is home to the Diego Rivera House and Don Quixote Museum, but the city is most famous for the Museo de las Momias (Mummy Museum). In Guanajuato there’s always a fiesta but the most important feasts are the Day of Flowers (the Thursday before Holy Week), Semana Santa (Easter) and the renowned International Cervantes Arts Festival (October).
James Pyle, House Manager, Juan Flores, Maintenance and the housekeeping staff are attentive to the home and guests. Ask for a tour pack of brochures with maps of the area outlining places to visit, things to see and up-to-date tourist info. Due to the consistent climate GTO is one of Mexico’s popular year-round destination choices.
