"Our trip to San Miguel de Allende was an amazing experience. From the beautiful views, to the delicious food, to the friendly people we came into contact with daily, our family had a vacation we will always cherish. However, one of the biggest reasons for our delight in SMA was that we rented this home. Not only did it have more than enough room for my husband, two children (ages 6 and 2) and my mother, the room that it had was perfectly designed and tended (the gardens/flowers were gorgeous thanks to Carlos), impeccably clean (thanks to the wonderful housekeeper, Ofelia), and gorgeously decorated. A circling staircase allows for the house to include a ground floor level which houses a kitchen, dining room and living room plus a garden patio for relaxing, a bedroom level which includes a master suite with a comfortable king bed and two other bedrooms plus one bathroom, and a rooftop terrace level (with its own bedroom/bathroom suite perfect for my mother) which allowed our family to enjoy coffee in the morning and ice cream at night watching the sun rise and fall! We utilized every square inch of the house, and loved being in all of the areas because there is natural light every where you turn, as well as access to windows or doorways for a beautiful breeze. Very often during our week stay we said that we would love to build a house like this one because so much attention was paid to where each window/terrace should be placed, or where the sitting areas should go according to where the sun hits the terrace, or where hidden skylights should be placed. Not only this, but the colors and fixtures inside provided cozy nooks for our family to read, relax and play games together. We really can't say enough about this house. A special thanks goes out to the house manager, Flor, who welcomed us with open arms, answered all of our questions during the week, and even gave us a lift to the gas station when we arrived late without having eaten dinner just so we could get something in our stomachs before bed. As you can see, we LOVED our trip and hopefully will be blessed by a return visit sometime in the future."
