La Terraza Del Pipila public parking lot is located on the Carretera Panoramica about 50 ft/15mt from Pipila's right hand with the torch. This is the only parking lot in the area. To reach this parking lot, set your GPS for Monumento Del Pipila. Let the lot men know that you will be living with Carmen and Rick. They will help you and bring you home. Many thanks to our friend Ing. Rubén Rodríguez Nieto, the builder, owner and operator of this lot. Thanks to Rubén, Casa Zuniga guests park for free.
Our internet is via Megacable Mexico. WIFI access is via hardwired access points throughout the home. The WIFI password is casazuniga, no caps or space.
The top entrance to the house is right across from the top entrance to the Funicular station. In just 90 seconds the Funicular will take you to the very center of the village 90 meters down. Erick Knapp and his father Eduardo Knapp of the Funicular and Hotel Balcon Del Cielo are nice enough to help us out so that Casa Zuniga guests ride the Funicular for free. BTW, Hotel Balcon Del Cielo has a fantastic view of the Centro.
Pool,...Yes, however not the Copacabana, Piña Colada, little umbrella type. We whipped this up to do laps. It goes with the gym. It's solar heated. If you want to use it, just roll up the heat pad then cover the pool back up when you're done. Make yourself at home. You're staying with friends. Ask for a pool towel.
Guests are welcome to use my home gym. However,...please keep in mind tthat the equipment has been modify and/or made to fit my exact needs.
Breakfast,....some delicious fancy cheese on some lightly toasted yeast bread with the crust cut off. You can get that but not here. Every morning at 9:00 we have a Mexican style, Sunday morning breakfast. That special breakfast that you have when a bunch of family or friends stay over. In the morning, we all sit down share that special breakfast that we whip up for our friends that stayed over:) We make this breakfast from scratch every morning starting at 7:30 and do everything possible to have it ready on time at 9:00. If you're looking for some coffee, tea, etc., come down to the kitchen anytime after 7:30. We do not have menus. We are just too rushed and not enough burners to make special meals. Our meals include pork, beef, chicken, mushrooms, cheese, cream, butter, plus some good stuff.
" Casa Zuniga was the best and most memorable place we stayed at during our 23 days in Mexico. The room was large, comfortable and had a great view of Guanajuato. The house is filled with beautiful artwork and sculptures. The included breakfasts were outstanding. Rick and Carmen were gracious hosts. We could not have asked for more. We intend to return next year for a longer stay."
" This is where you want to stay. Period. Fascinating host who gives you local history with paintings. Fascinating structure. Clean. Fresh. Views. Best location in town. Great swimming pool. Gym. Did I miss something? Oh, yummy breakfast. Host speaks English. Takes care of your luggage. Worth paying more. So worth it. This place meets all your needs."
" Rick the host of the bed and breakfast was really a cool guy. Made you feel very comfortable and took extra time to show you around and make recommendations. Very affordable and breakfast was out of this world. Highly recommend over other places locally and I did my homework, in fact we are coming back in a few days. Then place is unique and beautiful."
" We must add to the rave reviews of this wonderful and unique boutique B&B high above the hustle and bustle of magical Guanajuato. Our room was large and comfortable, complimented by Mexican furniture and textiles. My husband says it had best shower ever; the water is purified. The large common areas of the property are complete with exciting metal art works, visual art and lush plants which gave me serious plant envy. The view of Guanajuato from our balcony was spectacular, the pool was a delight and the location next to the Funiicular provided easy access to the world below. (We were provided with free tickets.). Thank you Rick and Carmen,"
