Now open for 3 nights or longer reservations. The Queendom of the Golden Bee complex has solar stars in the ceiling. The kitchen is AMAZING. The dining table sits up to 8 people. In the dining area, a glass wall opens to a huge Garambullo cactus. There's also a wonderful garden to rejuvenate in. We have planted over 50 euphorbia's eventually they will be 28" or taller--- its going to bee magnificent to watch the growth.
WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN BEE: 1st FLOOR • This is a great space to enjoy the ever changing secret garden. A place to read and draw while in between walking adventures.
The Golden Bees Caretaker, Warren, is a fabulous host, he will be there to greet you. Warren is originally from Vancouver, Canada but presently lives between Baja California Sur and Guanajuato.
We have added a lot of fun details into the Queendom. In the large brick dome, called a Bovada, above the dining table we have inset solar stars into the bricks. When the sun goes down the stars come out and twinkle on the ceiling. Bovadas are built free standing and is specific to this area of Mexico, truly remarkable. All of the dining dishes are made from artisans in Mexico. There are other wonderful ceramic pieces to enjoy through out the Golden Bee. Theodore, one of the creators of the Golden Bee, has recently added some of his new paintings to the walls. There is a sweet gas fire place and desk in the living room. The couch is also a twin bed. This kitchen is HUGE and so fun to cook in. It has a three station commercial stainless steel sink. This sink has filtered drinking water tap for your ease and comfort. This is a great kitchen for doing cooking retreats. The Stove also has a pot filler. The view from the kitchen is of a 18' foot and 25' across, Garambullo cactus in the garden. The bathroom has new modern plumbing and great hot water and pressure. The floors are hand made mosaic tiles from San Miguel Allende. Sara designed the metal mold for this floor. The bed room can be set up as a king bed or as two twin beds. The bed room also has a closet and plenty of storage for clothes. Nothing better then walking all day through the romantic streets of Guanajuato and coming home to tea in the garden.
The Golden Bee is made of an eco insulated panel system so it's quieter then brick and the room stays cooler or warmer than concrete. The doors, windows and gates are all made of steel so you can lock things up for security but still have light and fresh air.

The Golden Bee is all new construction using a new material called Covintec. Covintec is considered a Lead Platinum Green Product. It is a structural wired panel filled with a rigid insulation, which is than covered with stucco.
There is a beautiful stone wall that surrounds the property and a 20 foot tall old Garambullo cactus tree that is magnificent on warm days the honey bees buzz among the cactus and fruit trees.
HAVE YOUR OWN CAR?
There is a 24-hour secured out door parking lot with a guard, one block away from the Golden Bee. It is about 300 pesos a month (around $17.00). They lock the gate to the parking lot at 12:30 am and open it again at 5:30 am (there is someone there if you need to get in a closed hours).
The Golden Bee is about a 15 minute walk to the down town. You head straight out the door and down the hill, veer to the left and through a tunnel--- then you are in the centro. A taxi ride back up is about 35 -45 pesos. There are also buses that go directly up and will drop you off right in front.
The Golden Bee is located on the city bus line, just step outside and walk 15 feet to the bus stop. There are large buses and small buses. The smaller buses go down Barrio Nuevo and the large buses go along the Panoramic and stay more major roads into the centro.
We are situated in a residential neighborhood and is only a fifteen minute or less walk from down town. Little business and eateries are popping up all the time. A little food market just opened up across the street. In the morning they have different things delivered such as pastries,corn tortillas, and hot rolls. There is also a small hardware store across the street and paper store if you need to make copies.
If you head up the hill behind the Golden bee there is the beautiful old Mellado church at the top with a sweet plaza out front.
WE STILL HAVE SPACE AT THE GOLDEN BEE - FOR FESTIVAL CERVANTINO OCTOBER 2016!!! GUANAJUATO’S, AMAZING PERFORMANCE FESTIVAL IS ATTENDED BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AND PERFORMERS FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE.
At The Cervantino Festival there are many genres of performance art including contemporary and traditional dance, theater, opera, visual arts, film, literature and some fantastic multimedia pieces. There are many workshops, exhibits and conferences that happen simultaneously (mostly in Spanish). Events are held in venues throughout the city and outskirts. Performances happen both indoor and outdoor, in plazas, tunnels, side streets, theaters, cathedrals, historical buildings, parks, and museums. It is a treasure hunt full of amazing surprises. We have seen some of the best work at this festival that we have ever seen.
"The oldest known name for the area is “Mo-o-ti," which means “place of metals." Later, it was called "Paxtitlán" by the Aztecs, which means “place of straw." The current name of Guanajuato comes from P'urhépecha “Quanax huato," which means “hilly place of frogs." ---Wikipedia
BEE NOTE: Of the more than 20,000 bee species in the world, including native species, 2,000 are native to Mexico and depend on specific local weather, vegetation and forest conditions. The main differences between the honey produced by Western and native species of honeybee are in flavour, production capacity and colony size.
The first floor has access to the whole front garden area. The washing machine is on the 3rd floor so we encourage the 2nd and 1st Floor to ask when it is a good time to do some laundry. We ask that everyone leave 40ps a load. This goes back into buying laundry soap and other house hold cleaning supplies.
Each apartment has its own outside space yet the downstairs siting area under the citrus trees is open to all.
We invite you to shop in the local food markets and please remember to soak your fruits and vegetables with a couple caps of the soaking liquid under the sink for 15 min.. Happy adventure cooking!
