The dining room has a granite table and Mexican dishes for entertaining. Maid service is 3 times a week.

The house is located in the colonia (neighbourhood) of Independencia which is a Mexcian family area with Canadian and US artists. It is extremely easy to get into the main square of the town. The public bus stops just 3 doors away and cost about 50 cents. There are many cabs and they only cost $3.00 to get into town or ride home. This location gives you the chance to enjoy the many activities offered in town throughout the day and evening - and spend your nights in the quiet colonial of Independencia.

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About: I am a retired Canadian. I am an artist and avid reader.

                  Why Colonia Independencia:
                  I wanted to buy a home here as soon as I arrived the first time in 2005. The following year I found the perfect home, easy reach of the town center but up the hill in a quieter area. The house was so beautiful I just had to buy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I have rented 3 times in San Miguel de Allende and know what a rental home should have. A fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, relaxing living room and den(both with tv's), internet, phone and easy access to town. On top of this, a beautiful home with boveda ceilings and light!
