Colonia San Antonio house description

The street is quiet and picturesque – bougainvillea accent tree-shaded colonial entrances that open onto charming courtyards. Some people say it's the prettiest street in SanMiguel! A peaceful morning is enjoyed among the flowers with the gurgling of the old-world fountain providing a soothing melody.

The bright turquoise door gives this house its name - Casa Turquesa. It's easy to spot!

Only 2 blocks from the San Juan de Dios market, and a short (12-15 minute) walk to the Jardin (town square). You can't beat this location!

The residence includes a one bedroom, two bath ground level home and a one bedroom apartment above with its own entrance. The lower bedroom has french doors opening onto the patio for delightful afternoon breezes. Upstairs, a modern casita with a private terrace offers a view overlooking the city for early or late musings.

The living areas are warm and inviting, with a variety of art pieces illuminating San Miguel's creative spirit. Your guests will enjoy lingering in the cozy spaces, warming themselves by the fireplace.

Our housekeeper Rocio works three days a week, and for a slight additional charge, she can shop for you and prepare authentic and delicious Mexican meals.

Neighborhood restaurants and shops are handy when the urge for a delicious pastry or huevos rancheros strike you. Colonia San Antonio is a short walk or inexpensive taxi ride along cobblestone streets to the town square, El Jardin.

Although we prefer to rent both the upstairs and downstairs to a single tenant, occasionally the two residences are offered separately. Contact us for separate pricing. Each residence can accommodate up to four adults and has its own kitchen. Amenities include house cleaning service, high-speed internet and free calls to the United States and Canada.

                            My family and I greatly enjoyed Casa Turqesa during our recent stay in San Miguel. The house is warm and welcoming, very tastefully decorated with colorful Mexican tiles and ceramics throughout, very comfortable, and perfect for a larger family or two couples. The main house as well as the casita upstairs are very well appointed with everything you could possibly need during your stay. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable family home to stay in while in San Miguel that is close to El Centro or El Jardin (about a 15 minute walk). We greatly enjoyed Casa Turquesa!

                            Recommended for: Families with teenagers, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                            The casa is attractive & within 15 minutes walk to Jardin. Kitchens were well supplied. Casa was clean. Would recommend it to others. Cleaning ladies were very good. Manager was most helpful. The little seafood place on Refugio has been remodeled & great for shrimp cocktails...just off Vergel.

                            Rented the Casa Turquesa for 4 weeks in February. The house is located near the centro within a short walk but need to be able to walk the cobblestone streets and hilly terrain. The house has two levels-one bedroom apartment on each level with a terrace above overlooking the city. The house was comfortable with nice living quarters. The ground floor apt. has a sizeable kitchen with necessary eating and cooking utensils, microwave, oven, fridge, etc. The living and dining space is spacious and fully furnished. The bedroom has a very large bed with lots of closet space. The adjacent bathroom is a good size, very clean, with plenty of hot water. Also has a TV/Den room. House is very clean, well furnished, good lighting, telephone use is free for calls to US., after learning how to turn the gas heaters on - plenty of heat. The house does come with two maids working on alternate days - maintain the house clean, will cook if asked for a fee, and provide much information on San Miguel. The main maid was super friendly, went out of her way to make it a memorable stay. Security is excellent. A couple of neighbors were very friendly and helpful. There are Spanish schools nearby and many options on studying art, dance, etc. House Contacts are available for questions and help. I liked and enjoyed the house a lot, would definitely rent the house again. Very pleasant experience overall !!

                            All the people associated with this rental were very professional and extremely eager to be attentive to all of our needs, from the very beginning the folks were very prompt to answer all questions and were extremely helpful in getting to know SMA prior to arriving. The property manager, housekeeper and the next door neighbor were all great and added to the month long experience. English is no problem and the location is in a safe area. I would definitely recommend rental and look forward to returning.

                            Owner response: Thanks Marvin. We do our best to make renters happy. Our beautiful street is the perfect part of San Miguel to stay...tranquil, near market and a short walk to everything.

                            We have returned in February to 2 Vergel for the last 6 years as this home fulfills all our needs for an enjoyable Mexican vacation. The location is perfect for us, far enough from the city center clatter to feel restful, yet a quick 14 minute walk gets you to the Jardin/town centre. The walk is as flat as you will find in San Miguel. A slight downhill at the end of an exhausting day is very welcome. Taxi access is convenient for non-walking times. The house is spacious, bright and has all the amenities required for a home away from home. We found all we needed for cooking and eating at home. We especially appreciate free WiFi, free Vonage for long distance calling to Canada and the US, and portable local phones in each apartment. For cool weather the heating units take the chill off. Many rentals do not have heaters which has been miserable for the renters. The lower spacious courtyard is generally in shade with the second floor outside patio generally in the sun to accommodate all preferences. The rooftop area is another choice. Rosio, our housekeeper, is friendly and helpful, arrives 5 1/2 days a week to make our beds, do the dishes and dust and sweep inside and out. A more thorough cleaning is done once a week. Erika, the property manager, swiftly and cheerfully takes care of any problems, such as when the fountain or coffee maker quit working. Safe, pretty and quiet sums up the reasons for our continued return. We would recommend this home for your vacation also. Enjoy.

                            I spent a week at the lovely Casa Turquesa. Upon arrival I was greeted with flowers and the lovely lady that manages the property who speaks perfect English. The housekeeper was there and the manager interpreted all questions I had at that time for the housekeeper. Since I love being outdoors I so enjoyed the lovely area just outside the bedroom for morning coffee, sunning myself and just enjoying San Miguel. There is a washer and dryer, cable television and Vonage phone which allowed me to make and receive calls from the US and Canada at no cost. There was also wireless internet which worked well. I loved the bathroom because it had heat and plenty of room for my makeup and all the essentials one needs in the bathroom. Linens were lovely. Plenty of closet space, very adequate kitchen and really lovely Mexican dishes which I enjoyed immensely. The cobblestone street is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood, only a short walk or taxi ride from the Jardin (main town square). It's also only two blocks from the large food market, which has beautiful local fruits, vegetables and meat. I fell very safe, comfortable and secure in Casa Turquesa.

                          Year Purchased: 1995

                          About the owner: We are retired New Yorkers now living in Florida. We have owned and loved our home in San Miguel for almost 20 years.

                          Why the Owner Chose Colonia San Antonio:
                          San Miguel is a wonderful community with a year round climate. Any time is good to visit!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          It's in a terrific neighborhood...near a large food market...not far from the center of town, but far enough to be tranquil and secure.
