Colonia Caracol house description

You will find the house off of Calle Allende 16 on the small Callejon de la Palma. It is on a secured fenced and gated lot. There are no cars on the Callejon making it very quiet. It is located in Colonia Caracol. Raul and Guadelupe live and worked in San Miguel and Raul was born here and Guadalupe was born in a nearby town. We know the area very well and can help you with whatever information you need to make your stay more enjoyable.

The house is very comfortable and cool in the summertime. The electricity has been upgraded and North Americans will not need an adapter to use their electronic gear - all outlets are grounded. The kitchen is well equipped and there's a BBQ on the rooftop terrace. Both of the bathrooms have new American Standard Right Height toilets and more upgrades are planned. There is a wood burning fireplace in the sitting area of the living room and a space heater is provided for your comfort.

The main bedroom has a ceiling fan and a Sealy Pillowtop queen bed with a feather duvet.

The TV room is a comfy place to watch TV or read. The new 39' LG HDTV and 104 channels including BBC World News, CNN, PBS, and more English channels. Internet is hardwired and wireless.

The view from the rooftop terrace is beautiful. At night the sunsets are spectacular - each one is different in some way. The garden is beautifully decorated and you can catch the morning sun here or go up to the terrace and watch the sun as it comes up over the Parroquia.

The little tienda a half a block from the house sells water and limited supplies. It's an easy 15 minute downhill walk to the Instituto Allende where you'll find language classes, cafes and tours. There's a corner store near the Institute for supplies and a fresh fruit and veggie stand in front. You can continue on to the center of town, El Jardin, which is a 20-25minute walk directly from Casa Colibris. Don't worry - you can taxi back to the house for a mere $30 pesos or $2.50US.

We are very happy to share our home with you. San Miguel de Allende is a World Heritage site and we're very proud of it. You'll feel welcome here - not just by us but also by the town's people.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 1975

                  About: We lived in this house while our girls were growing up. Everything in the house is cared for with love and you can still hear the laughter echoing in the rooms. The location is very quiet and we built our new house right next door. We are close at hand and able to help you with information about San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding area. I (Raul) speak English having lived in the US when I was younger. Guadelupe is from a village near SMA and understands a lot of English but only speaks Spanish. We are both retired teachers. I taught English & PE and Guadalupe taught Spanish. We love San Miguel and we love our house. It is a great honor to be able to share that with you. We will do whatever we can to make your stay a memorable vacation and we hope you will return again someday.

                  Why Colonia Caracol:
                  Colonia Caracol is a classic Mexican neighborhood. It is filled with hard working people. We have a neighborhood church very close by and there are often family activities on the weekends. It is not unusual to see kids out at midnight with their parents watching the fireworks. On Mothers' Day you can hear the groups of young women going around singing on horseback about how much they love their mothers. From the terrace you can watch the fireworks in comfort.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The private house and garden are unique. The house is a traditional Mexican casa and there is a wood burning fireplace in the sitting area. All of the rooms have windows and the house keeps cool in the hot summers. The house is furnished with traditional Mexican furniture and is extremely comfortable. There is wireless internet in the house. It is a nice 20 minute downhill walk to El Jardin, the center of town. You can take a taxi back to the house for a mere $25 pesos ($2.50). There is also a bus 2 blocks from the house as well ($0.50). Half a block away is a little store where you can buy water and a few groceries. Down on Cinco de Mayo there are fruit and vegetables stores, lavenderias, a butcher and many places to eat. All this is a very short walk from the house.
