'Rife with color, almost every wall, every piece of furniture is hand-painted a different shade yet blends beautifully with each other, flowing from room to patio, roof garden to bedroom. Plants and flowers adding yet more color to this fabulously fun yet comfortable home.' Quote from San Miguel House & Garden Tour, a favorite for 7 years.
For those interested in art classes, Spanish classes, cooking classes, photography classes, birding, music or a special vacation, San Miguel de Allende is a captivating place to visit and Casa Del Alma epitomizes the 'San Miguel' experience. We are conveniently located in Colonia San Antonio, a quiet neighborhood 10-15 minutes EZ walking to Centro, the Mercado, the Instituto and the Jardin. We prefer this area to Centro because it is a safe and quiet neighborhood. It is an easy 30-second walk to a bakery and fresh ice cream. Five minutes to fresh produce and flowers.
This spacious 2-story corner home enjoys a sense of openness & privacy between bedroom suites. Enjoy sunrise & sunset views of the city from the roof terrace or the tree-shaded patio by the fountain. Or spend cozy evenings by one of the 3 uniquely tiled fireplaces.
Surrounded by bougainvillea, this magical art filled home combines the light and colors of San Miguel with modern comforts: A fully equipped large gourmet kitchen, delightful & spacious living room, exquisite dining room, 2 master bedroom suites with ample closets & pillow top queen mattresses. There is a completely upgraded high-speed Wireless Internet network with range extenders set up so you can stay connected through out the entire house & patios. You will be connected and yet you feel like you are on vacation.
Entering Casa del Alma brings a sense of awe. You know you have entered a uniquely special sanctuary, close to everything yet quiet. Kitchen, dining & living rooms plus bedrooms open onto lush patio gardens replete with birds, butterflies and humming birds. For entertaining, the roomy cook’s kitchen is well equipped with 'pass-through’s' to the patio.
Casa del Alma has 2 Master Suites. The downstairs Fountain Room has its own flat screen TV & DVD player, wrought iron bed-frame plus an exquisitely tiled bath where you can luxuriate in a shower of pressurized, unlimited hot water.
Connected to the upstairs Master suite is the den containing flat screen HD/TV & DVD Player with dozens of DVD’s, and hammered tin & tile fireplace plus a Queen Sofa-Bed & Boveda (arched brick) ceiling with skylight.
From the den, go through the wide hallway to the Tree House Room, Master Suite. The Queen pillow-top mattress boasts an elegant hammered tin headboard. Above find a second Boveda ceiling with a skylight where you can view the stars from your bed. Awaken to birdsong from the trees outside your window. The adjacent bathroom has a full sized tub, separate shower, Bidet & Filtered Drinking Water. The pressurized water system with unlimited hot water provides an exhilarating morning shower. Both bedrooms have feather and non-allergenic pillows, quality linens, electric blankets, luxurious Duvets, plush towels and Designer robes to enjoy during your stay.
For cool mornings & evenings, three unique gas fireplaces with thermostats yield instant heat. To cool the rooms, five ceiling fans ventilate both bedrooms, den, living room and kitchen. There are more portable fans if desired. Screens allow windows to be open any season without fear of insects. The secure Garage has a washer & dryer and will accommodate a small car. A special bonus for your Mexican vacation is maid service by Araceli three times a week. She will clean the house, outside areas and kitchen. As an extra service, Araceli will also wash & iron your clothes, shop for you and cook delicious meals both Mexican and American.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We met in a laugh class in 1986 both of us moving to Santa Barbara independently from the mountains of Colorado. Ironically the woman who taught that class now lives in San Miguel. We renewed our vows after 20 years of marriage in Oct. of 2010. There are 2 children from a 1st marriage, 2 grand kids and 2 cats.
Stan built his 1st website in 1997 and founded his web site firm, First Crescent. He has been singing and playing guitar (rock & roll) since he was nine.
After receiving her Masters in Counseling Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 1996, Joanna has worked as a therapist leading groups and doing individual and couple counseling.
Why the Owner Chose Colonia San Antonio: In 2004 we came to San Miguel to visit a friend. We had been looking to buy a 2nd home outside the US. in Victoria, B.C. when, new friends staying at the same B & B, said they saw a home that was perfect for us so we went to see for ourselves. The floor plan fit our indoor-outdoor lifestyle and we saw the possibilities: the quiet, flat streets appealed as did living in a mixed neighborhood of local families and expats. New artistic friends agreed to help us create a warm, comfortable ambiance that still makes us smile and feel good about life.
We love sharing this special home with those who visit for it seems to have the same effect on them.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We walk everywhere! Taxi's are available for 30 pesos if we need to haul stuff. The expats we meet are very interesting. The locals are warm and welcoming. We can enjoy the buzz of centro and walk home to our peaceful quiet home. With the reliable high-speed Internet, Vonage, and cell phone, I can still run my business while enjoying life in Mexico: the best of all worlds.
