Airport transport and tours available by bilingual American owner, Wonderful staff (cook, maid and gardener) plus complete menus, Hot tub, Pool table, Solarium, Beautiful Courtyard, Gardens, Terraces—This property has it all!

This house will truly be an unforgettable experience for you and your party. The property is located in the Historic Centro of the city in one of the most exclusive areas. You will be close to El Jardin with a leisurely 10 minute level walk from your front door. There are excellent restaurants, galleries and shops only two blocks away. Conde Nast continues to rate San Miguel de Allende as one of the top ten destinations.

The rental includes a wonderful cook with a large repertoire of Mexican Dishes. (write for Menus) The owner lives on property adjacent to the house, and is available to help with any problems you may have...a distinct advantage over arriving to an empty house with keys and a sheet of instructions! Airport transfers available too!

Within a quiet and enclosed community, you arrive at this large colonial house, with impressive carved stone facades and ironwork, a huge outside green area with grass, cactus, avocado, lemon, and pepper trees. Go back along the shaded walk to a very private entrance, where you enter the house with a unique and interesting floor plan; including a sunny formal living room, an impressive foyer, a large formal dining room with seating for eight persons, a spacious and beautiful kitchen with its own large table for informal dining, an arboretum with banana trees, ficus, bougainvillea, a 100 year-old pool table, plus a very comfortable adjoining den.

Walk up the impressive stone 'flying stairway' past a 20 foot cathedral window looking into a patio with a flower lined fountain and a beautiful tile-lined spa (easily holding eight persons) with old columns supporting the tile roof. At the top of the stairs admire the cupola and suspended chandelier, walk into the enormous master bedroom and adjoining dressing room and bath. The boveda covering part of the master bedroom is a unique design which lowers the ceiling, giving the feeling of a canopy over the bed. Also at the head of the stairs, you may enter the guest wing of the house, which has a sunny and extremely spacious bedroom, with a similar canopy boveda ceiling, fireplace with gas logs,and comfortable chairs for reading. The guest bath has a shower and is divided into 3 separate sections for the shower, washbasin, and commode. If there are more than 4 people in your party, there is a studio apartment with a queen size bed, TV/DVD, fridge, microwave and nice separate bath. No Children or Pets, please.

The entire house is a feast for the senses, with windows, light, and unending details... such as the lima-bean shaped tile bathtub in the master bedroom, the hand painted relief on the large arch spanning the kitchen, beautiful woodwork, stonework, arches, terraces, fountains, fireplaces, beamed ceilings, etc. The home has two Wurlitzer Juke boxes from the 30's and 40's (enjoy the lights but please do not play) a piano, an antique Brunswick solid oak pool table from the 20's, (please DO play!), Wet Bar, large outdoor grille, and patio furniture for outside dining. There is lots of comfortable furniture for just relaxing both indoors and out.

The staff includes a very capable and sweet cook, an upstairs maid who washes and irons linens and personal laundry, (personal laundry can also be left at the full service laundromat one block from the house) gardener, and a gatekeeper. Your locaton is perfect to take advantage of all the activities in this interesting city. Cozy studio apartment also available on the premises for additional guests in your party. Secure parking is available.
