Colonia San Antonio house description
One of the most unique homes in all of Mexico. Master artisan and designer Jesus has transformed this home into an incredible collection of Mexican, Mayan, Moroccan and Italian details. Almost every square inch is a delight to view and live with.
The large Living Room and kitchen (over 800 square feet) features tall ceilings (14 feet) and unique floor, wall and ceiling treatments. Maestro Jesus visited various museums and libraries to research these Mayan designs--Mayan symbology with emphasis on the four major elements of the Mayan world--fire, water, wind and earth.
The nearby kitchen is totally up-to-date with all stainless steel Italian, Mexican and American appliances. The kitchen ceiling is the "boveda" style with a major difference--an original Mayan Sun symbol--in genuine gold leaf. The comidor or dining area has a fireplace with an original fresco painting and walls with gold leaf designs.
The second level large bedroom includes one wall totally covered with over 3,500 squares in genuine gold leaf--a design inspired by a Moroccan rug. The attached bathroom (again rather large) has an over sized copper tub and a shower with skylights. There is also an original mural of a reproduction of a Fifth Century Italian tomb scene--and a cozy hand carved fireplace.
Tucked away on a hillside overlooking the magnificent city of San Miguel de Allende, this amazingly constructed and unique home has views of Centro from two levels. This three level gem with outdoor living space is perfect for lounging or entertaining.
Only a short walk to Centro, with off-street parking and a neighborhood watchman, you can feel safe staying at home or walking further into town.
This fabulous location in the heart of Colonia San Antonio neighborhood is not to be missed--whether for a week or several months on your visit to this historic town in Central Mexico.
If you need more space, only a few steps away is a charming & cozy Casita available for 2 people. It has separate entrances, off-street parking, full kitchen, queen bed, fireplace, large bathroom with skylights and a private patio overlooking the city.

Betty's visit to incredible San Miguel
During my month stay, the Casey home was a most pleasant 'home away from home'. It is an architectual delight that is both spacious and comfortably appointed. With exquisite views over San Miguel Centro, the residence boasts lavish decor and is impeccably maintained. The extensive patios provide the opportunity for gracious outdoor living and entertaining while expanding the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking views.

Palazzo six month rental - 2012Guest comment entered by owner
Palazzo six month rental - 2012
We rented the Palazzo for six months, and although we have been coming to San Miguel for many years, this is without doubt the most beautiful, accomodating and comfortable home we have enjoyed here. The staff are superlative and the gracious one bedroom home with the casita for guests is now filled with our memories of a home away from home. This beautiful home, with all of the conveniences we needed, is an oasis of quiet calm, overlooking the center of the city.

"Oh my, oh my ..... what a special place the Palazzo is! Staying there was like living inside a work of art with every square inch jaw-droppingly gorgeous. During our six months in SMA, John and I spent many cozy hours, sitting in front of the grand fireplace, thanking our lucky stars for the piece of paradise we had found. We wish 'tu casa were our casa' but since it isn't --- thank you, Don, for the opportunity to live in your stunning Palazzo. Many thanks,as well , to your amazing staff - Josefina, Pancho and Gabriel. They treated us like family and we have many, many warm memories of our winter in San Miguel"
