Colonia San Antonio townhome description
Nestled behind a high wrought-iron electric gate is your refuge in the magical town of San Miguel de Allende. In one of San Miguel's most desirable locations, you are close to everything yet apart, in the corner of colonia San Antonio closest to the 'centro historico'. This property is directly behind the exclusive gated community known as 'La Aldea' and the hotel La Aldea with it's lovely solar heated pool and it's two tennis courts, both open to the public for a small fee. You are located just steps away from Calle Oriziba, colonia San Antonio's main thoroughfare where one can easily flag down a bus or taxi. The house is conveniently located a short walk from several of San Miguel's more popular restaurants, the weekly organic market on Saturdays and the Instituto Allende with it's art classes, galleries and monthly Artisan Craft Fairs . These fairs attract some of the finest craftspeople and folk artists in Mexico and are a great place to find that special rug, pottery, painting, piece of jewelry or textile treasure. You are a five minute walk to the Hotel Aldea and a fifteen minute walk from the Jardin.
Set back from the street on a private lane of three houses, this oasis of quiet awaits you at the end of a day of sightseeing, shopping, Spanish lessons, art classes, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, golf, a soak in the hot springs or whatever your heart desires. Both neighbors are quiet and gracious, one is only there six months of the year. If you want peace and quiet, in a flower-filled environment, this is it!
Fully modernized systems make your stay stress free. Local and Vonage phones keep you in touch with family and your new friends here. WiFi throughout the house for all your gadgets. A laundry room with washer and dryer so you can pack less, not worry about your laundry and have more room in your suitcase for souvenirs. Maid service is provided once a week.
Entering your home's spacious hallway, you find a complete laundry hidden behind a door on your left. A half-bath is next while on the right side you have a beautifully tiled and fully equipped kitchen with a south facing window, which opens onto a dining room seating six. The dining room features a 'boveda' or domed ceiling topped with a cupola, filling the room with natural light. Hand painted export quality tiles adorn the kitchen and all the bathrooms.
Up a few steps is a large living room with two couches and a big comfy armchair. An entertainment center including cable television with English language programming and a DVD player . For crisp winter nights there is a fireplace with a gas heater. A plant filled patio extends the length of the Living Room providing beautiful light and can be illuminated at night.
The second floor contains the bedrooms and two full baths. The Master Bedroom has a king bed , full bath with bathtub en-suite and cable TV with English language programming. A wall of closets can accommodate whatever you bring or acquire shopping here. The window overlooks a cluster of cupolas.
Across the hall is a south facing bedroom which has a queen bed, a small balcony and full bath with a shower en suite. Extensive closets with built in shelves keep your things in order. Both bedrooms provide all the comforts and total privacy. Despite an abundance of light coming in through big windows and two sliding glass doors, cross ventilation keeps this house comfortable throughout the year.
A broad flight of steps leads up to your private aerie. Tiled, plant-filled terraces with endless views over San Miguel and the surrounding mountains await you. Whether stretched out on a chaise lounge reading that book you never have the time for, or enjoying a margarita while watching flocks of egrets fly from the botanical gardens back to their nests on the Presa, as the sky erupts in a pink and purple extravaganza, your terrace provides the perfect end to another beautiful day.
There are two terraces, an upper and lower. The upper terrace has an spectacular view of the whole center of the city, including five of San Miguel's iconic churches. A tiled roof 'tejado' offers shade in the heat of summer. A table, chairs and chaises lets you use this magnificent space as you wish, for working on your laptop, drawing, writing, reading, entertaining or just relaxing.
The lower terrace is flower-filled, with views over the dome of the San Antonio church and out to the Picachos mountains to your south. This is a great spot for sunbathing.There is a small table and chairs for breakfast in the sun.
You and your friends will welcome this retreat from the world.

A flower-filled oasis in San Miguel de Allende
A flower-filled oasis in San Miguel de Allende
We recently spent three lovely weeks in this spacious, modern and comfortable townhome in San Miguel. With a large, well-equipped kitchen and living room and second bedroom with an ensuite bath, it would comfortably accommodate 2 couples. We loved the colourful Mexican tiles throughout the house and the tastefully decorated rooms. Ann was a great hostess, who provided everything we needed while there, and was generous with her time to recommend restaurants. It was really nice to have the staples taken care of. This included water, local and long distance phone, reliable internet, bathroom supplies , cleaning, gardening and changing of linen and towels. The gardens and the rooftop patio were the highlight. There was a great view of downtown, the churches and the surrounding mountains from our sunny rooftop terrace. We enjoyed the location in Colonia San Antonio, on the border of the Historic Centro. It was quiet and not full of tourists, but a leisurely 15 minutes to the central square and church. Our Spanish school was just a two minute walk around the corner, and the famous Instituto Allende was a five minute minute walk, as were many good restaurants along nearby streets. We look forward to returning soon.

We spent six wonderful weeks this past summer in Anne's home in SMA. It was our first experience at renting out of the country and it was excellent. The pictures are accurate of this home and the location and accessibility to everything San Miguel has to offer is terrific. You walked out the front gate and taxis were plentiful. Any request we made of Anne was immediately addressed and she made our stay extremely comfortable. We cannot wait to return and hope Anne will be able to accommodate us!!!

For 6 months last year from May to September, I resided at this lovely conveniently located secure home in the heart of SMA while I looked for property of my own. This modern villa with 2 beds and baths is completely furnished from the flatware to the linens and towels. Bring your personal items and leave your cares behind. The double terrace overlooks SMA with spectacular views. I couldn't have found a better situated house, not more than 15 minute walk from the heart of the city. You will find everything you need, including the Aldea Hotel only minutes away with it's pool and amenities. The Ancha (main road with restaurants, shopping and the famous Instituto) is one block away and if you tire the taxis are plentiful and only a couple of US dollars to go ANYWHERE in town.

We stayed for 6 weeks earlier this year and very much enjoyed Anne's house. Roof top patio is the great feature with a terrific view of "El Centro". Beds, kitchen equipment, living room etc were all quite satisfactory. Nice flat walk to the Insituto and El Jardine in the dowtown area.Photos and description is an acurate view of the unit which we highly recomend..Mic & William
