Colonia Independencia house description
Located 1.2 miles from Centro, this cozy one bedroom, one bath upper floor suite is situated in a charming mixed Mexican/gringo neighbourhood (Santa Julia) and is within walking distance (15 minutes) to the Jardin, where many historic monuments of Centro San Miguel including the world famous Parroquia are located.
The unit has recently undergone a complete renovation with a new kitchen, totally painted, new light fixtures, new wiring etc. the kitchen is equipped kitchen, and the bedroom has a matrimonial sized bed and your own washer/dryer as a bonus. There is WIFI for your computer allowing you to stay in touch with family and friends. Of course comforts like cable TV are included. A private terrace features a table and chairs and is perfect for your morning coffee. The house is secure behind Mexican walls.
The neighborhood is safe and clean with many little shops, such as grocery, fruit and vegetable, butcher etc. on Calle Ignacio Allende (our closest main street). Bus and taxi service is available on this street. A bus is 5 pesos (about 45 cents or a taxi is 30 pesos to get downtown). This main road also leads directly to the Mercado de San Juan de Dios one of the two large outdoor markets here in San Miguel.
This magical retreat nestled just above the hustle and bustle of the central area of the beautiful colonial city of San Miguel de Allende is but just a short 15 minute walk to the 'el Jardin' and 'la Parroquia.” After a full day's outing, you can return home and relax in a private, quiet, stylish environment that feels more 'country' than 'city' and has all the amenities of home.
Don’t like walking, no problem because we are close to Centro, and taxis are very inexpensive (30 to 35 pesos)
A dog will be considered based on size and breed.
I have chosen San Miguel as my home. It is a wonderful, culturally rich and diverse tourist destination and also has a large expat community. Santa Julia is located right next to el Centro and is a community that is quieter and less polluted than el Centro. I enjoy living closer to nature, yet near to the action of the center of town. This location makes it possible to walk into the center for concerts and restaurants.
I do not live on site, but help is available to help you make the most of your visit and to help settle in, answer questions about the apartment and also to provide advice and information on local restaurants, transportation, amenities, activities, events, etc.

Very Attentive Owner!
Very Attentive Owner!
We had a great time at Casa Tranquila. The house is newly renovated and decorated and is near the bus line to town (10 minute ride). Lin-the owner-also mentioned that there are nice walks into town but we did not try them. Because this is a new rental there were still a few small kinks to work out but Lin was incredibly responsive to our requests. San Miguel is a beautiful city although we were there during the Day of the Dead celebrations so the traffic downtown was a little too much for such a small city. This rental would work great for a small family or two couples.

Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.
Owner response: Thanks Henry and Rachael It was my pleasure in hosting your family. I hope you and the girls will come back again. If you come again perhaps we can embark on some of the wonderful walks into town, it is so beautiful and quick. The buses are certainly a very easy (and cheap) option that is for sure. Thanks again.
Like the name implies, it was tranquil.

Staying at Casa Tranquila was “the icing on the cake”. San Miguel is a magnificent city with so much to see and do but after a full day of touring around it was wonderful to come back to such a beautiful home. And it was fabulous! The kitchen and bathrooms were new with stylish cabinets, granite and marble. The furnishings and artwork were very attractive. Dramatic high Boveda ceilings with lovely light fixtures were found in almost every room. The accommodation was exceptionally homey, clean and a great place for us to start our day with coffee and end it with a nightcap. I loved the high quality, comfortable bedding. One evening we walked over to the Supermarket and enjoyed a wonderful at home meal. The kitchen contained everything a gourmet cook would want. Absolutely brilliant location, two blocks to the bus, taxis readily available and a short walk to town. The owner was most helpful in terms of finding our way around and recommending things to do and places to see. Hazel Sutherland Vancouver, Canada
