Casa Colibri, home of the hummingbird, is a large bright 2 bedroom home overlooking San Miuel de Allende. This newer home has over 3,000 square feet of living space and is in the neighbourhood next to 'Centro', an easy 20 minute down hill walk.

A gas fireplace, TV with cable, CD and DVD also make the living room a comfortable place to relax. There is a full kitchen with eat-in counter and bar area. The dining room has a granite table and Mexican dishes for entertaining. Maid service is 3 times a week.

The second floor has a the large master bedroom with 2 'Juliette' balconies, its own small terrace overlooking the garden area and a Mexican tiled en-suite bathroom. On this level there also is a cozy den with TV, high speed internet and a pull out sofa.

The third floor has another large bedroom with a balcony that has breathtaking sunset views over the lake. Again, an ensuite Mexican bathroom. On this top level is the a tiled terrace, good for eating, relaxing or entertainig with beautiful views of the city and countryside including the Parroquia (Parish Church). All the bedrooms have hand-carved wood furniture and comfortable beds and linens.

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.

Everything is close by. San Miguel de Allende is a charming colonial town, a national historic landmark with an international community of artists, writers, dancers and musicians. The center of town or the Jardin (garden) has many wonderful sights and sounds. The is nightly entertainment, sidewalk cafes and artisan crafts. There is local theatre, dancing and music. There are many churches along the cobblestone streets to discover. There is a chamber music festival, a jazz festival, lots of local festivals and parades. Also, there are many art galleries, art lessons and shopping.

Truly, it is hard to describe the magic of this city. You need to come and experience it for yourself. You will feel at hone doing that from this wonderful house.

                      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!
