Centro Historico house description
This recently and extensively remodeled home offers Mexican charm on three lots set in a large garden shaded with ancient Mesquite and Pepper trees. The effect is quite romantic yet we are only a five minute walk to the center of town. We enjoy a formal indoor living room with fireplace and a large estancia (outdoor living room) which looks out on the large terrace with fountain and views the large garden. Each room is artistically designed including the serene master bedroom with fireplace which overlooks the garden and the glassed-in dining room which at tree-top level is excellent for bird watching. There is extensive use of hand-hewn beams, tile floors and Mexican tile work throughout the house as well as special examples of folk art. In addition, there is a separate guest suite which includes a sitting room, bedroom and bath.
The house is located within walking distance of all the historic sites and attractions of this World Heritage Mexican town established 1547.

A Perfect Oasis
A Perfect Oasis
After renting in San Miguel once before, we knew what we did not want in a rental, a rooftop patio, lots of stairs and usually hot during the day. A dark interior or traditional furniture which can be lovely but very uncomfortable. And, the most important thing more than a 5 minutes to anything in el centro. So, our list included, privacy, lots of natural light and space, on the same level, for outdoor living and close to everything. But, we were overwhelmed when we stepped inside our lovely casa. We arrived on a warm day having just spend many hours in a van coming from Mexico City. The cool walled garden with its spacious outdoor living area, large trees and terraced garden with beautiful flowers was to become our perfect oasis. The inside of the house was light (sky light in living room, large glass doors and windows), very well appointed and oh so comfortable. We were expecting guests in the weeks to come and so were happy with the very private accommodations for them complete with their own living area. The bathrooms had the biggest showers I've seen in Mexico. But, the best was our maid, Maria, was very efficient but so helpful. She came five days a week. I'm now preparing lots of Mexican dishes that she lovingly helped showed me how to prepare. We could walk everywhere in town in just a few minutes. The front of the house was on a “callejón” or alley making it so peaceful at least when there were no church bells or fireworks. Lots of celebrations in San Miguel. The property manager was available, if needed, but never intrusive. We hope to return someday, but I know you'll love this casa as much as we did.
