Artists, Sara Tink Mapelli and Theodore Holdt created and completed the Golden Bee in the spring of 2016. With the help of many hands the Golden Bee was built out of a Leed Platinum Green Material called Covintec. We went the extra mile with modern plumbing which includes a grey water system that waters the fruit trees, LED lighting and UV filtered drinking water taps at all the kitchen sinks . The stunning views from the terraces are of Guanajuato's incredible colored buildings, the private garden is full of cactus' and citrus trees. The Golden Bee is located on the bus line. There is a gated parking lot one block away with a 24 hour security guard. Tara and David live on the second floor and they will be your Golden Bee welcome Committee. They can answer any questions you might have. They are super FABULOUS!!!!
