"The Magical Garden House was the perfect choice for a first visit to San Miguel with our 13-year old son. I love color and Mexican folk art, and this place has it in spades! The property includes a two-story, 2-bedroom home on one side of the garden, and "The Casita" - a studio apartment - on the other side. We rented only the two-story house, which has the living/dining/kitchen spaces and a powder room on the main floor, and an elegant curved wooden stair leading to the two bedrooms, bathroom and laundry facilities on the second floor. There are large, handsome built-in cabinets in which to store your belongings, and the entire wall facing the garden has operable windows to let in fresh air and the delightful frog and cricket sounds (and the occasional rooster) of uphill San Miguel!
The furnishings are cozy and comfortable and the beds and bedding are too. The huge bathroom upstairs is a work of art with its colorful hand-painted tile work and I especially enjoyed soaking in the deep tiled bathtub. The central garden is amazing, and features table and chair seating areas adjacent to the kitchen, a large covered seating area facing the garden and another umbrella table and chairs on the roof of the covered seating area. From the second story of the main house you access the Crow's Next -- which boasts a territorial view of San Miguel and the surrounding mountains. It is breathtaking and truly the cherry on the top of this charming house.
The location is very secure on a quiet street with a keyed metal door from the street into the garden. If that wasn't enough, the property is watched over by a lovely Virgin of Guadalupe wall mural across the street! Not once at the property or out and about in San Miguel were we concerned for the safety of ourselves or our belongings. It is an ambitious yet delightful 15-minute walk down hill to the center of town along rustic cobblestone or stone block streets. Everyone in San Miguel -- including the locals -- wear sturdy athletic or walking shoes. Keens would be perfect. Although we did walk back up the hill a few times, we more often opted to jump into one of the many green taxis which are prevalent in town and pip up the hill for the equivalent of about US$2.50. Can't beat that!!
There are many restaurants down the hill, as well as fresh tortillas, rotisserie chicken and other delights on your way to the Mercado des Artisanias. Don't miss the street tacos near the main square at night!"

"Five of us—an 88 year old woman, three middle-aged women, and a 20-something woman—just returned from a week at one of the most beautiful spots in San Miguel. Villa Feliz is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The staff members are incredibly helpful about what to do and see. The owner, Cory, suggested a guide who took us to Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo as well as the Tuesday market in town. The house manager, Holly, was always available to suggest activities and give us advice. You can't go wrong staying here. I'd return in a heartbeat!"

"This apartment is ideal for one or two people that want to stay close to the Jardin but still want a quiet place.
A kitchen, living room and dining room, bathroom with shower with hot water, bed room, patio and roof access.
Purified water in the tap. It was a little dark, no natural sunlight but otherwise it was great. I recommend it. Lyn was great to work with, very attentive and responsive."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at SonjoWasi.
The historic garden property is located in centro San Miguel, very close to the beautiful Parque Benito Juárez and the new Rosewood Hotel and Spa. Many wonderful things to see and do are within easy walking distance, such as the Instituto Allende, Tianguis Orgánico Saturday market, and so on.
Villa staff members took very good care of us, and made us feel right at home, esp., preparing home cooked Mexican breakfasts and lunches, helping with our laundry, calling taxis, and so forth. A modern Peruvian restaurant called La Parada, is located conveniently just outside of the villa gates.
To conclude, we absolutely enjoyed our sojourn at SonjoWasi, and we totally recommend it."
