"Aside from being a stunning home with artwork everywhere and stunning views - the real gem of this house is the staff. The chef and her assistant are angels in the kitchen.
The lap pool is pretty special - and the rooms are spacious, the place is perfect for a family or group of friends. It is a long walk to town -- but scenic all the way. That's if you decide to leave at all - the views from the open air living space offer enough visual treats to fill the day."

"We stayed here for 2 weeks with our three kids (age 3, 8, and 10). The kids liked it. We liked it. The kids stayed upstairs in the second floor casita that had its own bedroom, living room w/ sleeper sofa, bathroom, and kitchen. They could go up there during the day for some quiet time as needed. At night, after they went to bed, the adults had the whole downstairs main house to ourselves. Very relaxing. There's also a living room and den downstairs, so I could sneak off and read for a bit in relative silence while the kids played in the main living room downstairs.
Overall, there was plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was decently equipped with plenty of cooking gear. Full size fridge that was COLD! Washer/dryer in upstairs casita works great.
We stayed in June where the daytime temps sometimes hit 85 F or so. It never got hot in the downstairs house, and just a bit warm in the upstairs. I worried about not having air conditioning but we didn't need it at all.
Only downside was the fireworks at weird hours of the early morning and late evening. Some crazy festival was going on (which included an awesome parade on a Sunday!), but the fireworks at 6 am weren't that fun. Not a problem with the house itself, just a quirk of staying in San Miguel de Allende apparently. We could, however, usually see the fireworks from the rooftop terrace above the 2nd floor casita. Pretty cool overall!
Location was pretty good, though it's a 10 minute walk or so to get into the downtown centro area. The local market is only <5 minutes away and offers tons of fresh fruits and vegetables and a few "comedores" with great local cuisine for just a few USD per meal (50 pesos I think). Taxis were plentiful from the main street maybe 2 minutes from the house. We walked to the main bus station multiple times for day trips out of town - maybe 10 minutes or so from the house. On the way to the bus station is a nice discount grocery store called Neto that is dirt cheap and clean and offers most of the staples (just no produce and no fresh meat).
We enjoyed the location being a little bit away from the "touristy" downtown area because it's probably quieter at Casa Turquesa that way. And the local restaurants and market that caters to local Mexicans seemed more authentic and less expensive than the more touristy restaurants in the centro that cater more toward tourists and ex-pats.
Overall, a great place to stay in San Miguel de Allende."

"This is a special house that is hard to describe in words. Two roof decks, interior atrium. Everything is cozy but perfectly proportional. We stayed their with a family of five and our pre-teen daughter loved the couch nook in the study as her personal domain. Location couldn't be better in town -- just a block away from all the happenings but quiet. (although people in San Miguel do love to celebrate weddings and recognize funerals with very big fireworks so it's not exactly a quiet place.) Had two great adventures with Coyote Canyon adventures -- highly recommend the overnight horseback trip. Our youngest was 4 and she loved it."
