Balcones house description
The vistas from this dream home defy description. The western evening panorama of rose and purple sunsets against craggy mountains plays nightly from the terrace. In the foreground of this spectacular display is the enchanting town of San Miguel with a perfect view of all the churches and their magnificent domes and steeples. To the north is a fabulous view of a lovely lake that supplies water to San Miguel and includes the picturesque ruins of a 16th century tannery and aqueduct.
Decorated in the rich colors that are the hallmark of Mexico with lots of fabulous architectural and decorative accents, the home was designed for comfortable and casual living while always retaining an air of colonial luxury. There are two lushly furnished outdoor living rooms with fireplaces, an indoor living room, a formal dining room and a cozy kitchen. The house wraps-around a central patio filled with flowers and the wonderfully soothing sounds of water falling from stone fountains.
The master suite ia a fairy tale room with a king bed as well as his and hers bathrooms. The other three bedrooms are charmingly decorated and have their own baths. The bed sizes are a king and two queens. There is a lap pool surrounded by bougainvillea and Birds of Paradise.
Our outstanding staff is friendly and helpful. Sra. Trini, our house manager and marvelous cook, can create dishes ranging from traditional, authentic Mexican, Italian, Chinese, kid friendly, or light healthy. We also have many menus and cook books from which you can choose your own dishes. Sra. Trini has even been known to give guests cooking lessons if they ask. Sra. Andrea keeps the house beautifully clean and is professional and very experienced with your laundry. Sr. Sergio keeps the grounds, gardens and pool immaculate. He is also a wonderful musician and has been known to serenade guests that are interested and can help you with many other requests. Sra. Trini and Sr. Sergio speak some English.
Children are welcome. No pets please.

I have been traveling to San Miguel since 1995 and this is by far the best location, extraordinary staff and comfortable home I have ever stayed in. The staff made us feel so welcomed and were always attentive to any request no matter how minor. The home itself is a visual gift. The pictures on the website don't do the home justice.....there is so much more to include wifi and cable. When I return to San Miguel, and I hope it will be soon, I hope to be able to again enjoy this beautiful home!

Wow! From the moment the driver left and we walked down into the entry of the Casa O'Leary this house far exceeded our expectations! The house is so full of beautiful art and magic just like the city of San Miguel. Every time you turn a corner there is something special to see and something else to adorn. From the outdoor views and fountains to the magnificent paintings and sculptures inside this home is the best museum in town ~ yet it is so warm and comfortable. The views from the balcony are amazing and the best sunsets ever ~ especially with the homemade guacamole and margaritas which welcomed us in! It didn't take us long to realize that Senora Trini was one of the best cooks in town! There's nothing better than waking up to the smell of fresh salsa cooking or the taste of Snapper Veracruz ~ whatever your request! It's an even better treat when her husband plays the guitar and sings to you over dessert! One day she heard us trying to make cooking class reservations ~ lucky for us she taught us some of her secrets which were priceless! The city of San Miguel was such a treat as well ~ almost as if you mixed Spain, Italy and Mexico together for an amazing mix of old world, class, and culture into to one small city full of art, music and beautiful charming people and artisans. San Miguel is very clean and so full of art & history. We enjoyed great shopping and wonderful dining and always felt very safe. This was truly one of our favorite trips and absolutely one of the most spectacular homes ever! We can't wait to go visit the Casa O'Leary again! Hasta Luego Amigos!
