Property description

Casa Caracol is nestled on the side of the mountain in a delightful neighborhood a short walk from city center. The house consists of 3, one bedroom apartments plus a guest room. You can rent one apartment to sleep 2 people or add on the guest room or other apartments to accommodate up to 8 people. The house works very well for a couple or groups. Pricing depends on the number of units. The view from the entire house is spectacular including the mountains and sunset. There is a large roof terrace with a 360 degree view, said by many to be one of the best in town, and small garden with fountain. Large sunny windows, Boveda ceilings, built-in couches, beautiful painted details, and a unique circular interior stairway filled with plants make Casa Caracol a delight to the eye. Heaters, rocking chairs, queen size beds, cotton sheets, and down comforters make it a comfortable place to live.
All apartments have a private entrance onto the plant filled central stairway. Weekly maid service is included. Additional services can be arranged.
San Miguel is noted for its art schools as well as many private teachers. Casa Caracol is an easy walk to the Instituto Allende.
Should you visit when the hosts are in residence you will be given a wealth of information and help as you settle into the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1974

About the owner: Charlotte and Wolf designed and built their house in San Miguel in 1995. Wolf is a fine furniture maker and Charlotte is a photographer. Their unique style is reflected throughout the house. The neighbor hood is Colonia Caracol which means snail. The house is built around a curved central stairway like a snail house. People who stay in the house comment on how inviting, safe and comfortable they feel. Plus they love all the color.

Why the Owner Chose Colonia Caracol:
Who doesn't want a house in San Miguel de Allende? Not only is it beautiful and have a climate that cannot be beat year round it is also full of interesting people. We especially like to be in SMA in the summer to get out of the Texas heat where we live the rest of the year.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our neighborhood is special. It is a mix of middle class Mexicans, Canadian and people from the US. Everyone if friendly. Many feel we have the best view in town from our roof terrace. If you should visit when we are in San Miguel we will give you many tips on places to see and will also bring you to visit some of the neighboring villages if you so desire. And a trip to the hot springs is always fun.
