"A well equipped home with a lovely sunny garden in a quiet convenient neighbourhood. Lots of restaurants closely as well as a gym and yoga studio. It is a comfortable walk to El Jardin, in the centre of town. The house had a well equipped kitchen, four spacious bedrooms, a den and comfortable living/dining room. Everything worked well. The owners, Frank and Mona, could not have been more accommodating. Special thanks to Erica, the wonderful housekeeper."

"We (3 women) spent 6 days at Casa Turquesa and enjoyed our stay. It was a delightful setting and a very well equipped house. There was a slight miscommunication in the beginning about getting the key, but the agency was so sweet as to give us a bottle of wine for any inconvenience caused. There was a lovely bouquet of fresh flowers on the dining room table upon our arrival. It's a sunny house with various seating possibilities outside and indoors so that we could each enjoy our own private space if desired. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and we could walk to the center in about 20 minutes and to the Ancha in about 10. I felt safe at all times. We didn't cook our meals, but the kitchen had everything needed if we had decided to do so. I slept on the couch that converts to a bed upstairs and the mattress was too soft to my liking, but may be perfect for someone else. There are 3 TVs downstairs and one upstairs so it would be possible to watch different programs if desired. The maid is very friendly and helpful. I would gladly stay there again."

"My wife and I, along with our close friends and traveling companions, spent a wonderful week in San Miguel and stayed at Casa del Alma. The house is in a great location: easy walking distance from downtown but just far enough out to escape a lot of the street noise. The house is laid out perfectly and the furniture and furnishings are a treat in themselves. Araceli, the housekeeper, is incredible and was very helpful. The house has everything you could possible need. All you need is food, some wine and cold Victoria's and you are all set. Make sure you sit up on the roof top terrace just before sunset. A glass of wine, some bread and cheese and that view and you won't want to leave.
There are several good options within a few minutes walk for groceries and there is an incredible Rotisserie chicken stand right up on Canal, just across the bridge - less then 5 minute walk. For the grand price of 60 pesos (4USD) you can get a great rotisserie chicken, with onions soaked in the juices). That, some wine or cold Victoria's, sitting in the courtyard for dinner, with some church bells in the background. Better than any fancy hotel dining room anywhere in the world.
We walked just about everywhere from Casa del Alma. Those places that we decided to use a taxi to reach, cost us all of 30 to 40 pesos. Cheaper than the chicken. And all the cab drivers, and everyone we met, were friendly and very helpful.
San Miguel de Allende is an incredible city. And Casa de Alma is the perfect place to base yourself to experience it. The churches, the beautiful parks, the incredible views around every corner and the people.
San Miguel de Allende is a magical city, and her people are very friendly and inviting."

"After renting several different residences in the San Antonio neighborhood of San Miguel de Allende for various holiday visits, in 2007, we discovered Casa Cielo Azul. We were taken not only by the wealth of stunning photos on the VRBO website, but also by the artistry of the décor, the beautifully designed kitchen, and the breathtaking views. Since then, we have never considered another place for our annual Christmas/New Year’s holiday visits to SMA.
The house is exactly as pictured and invariably immaculately maintained. Each of the three beautiful patios provides a different garden/view experience, either for dining, sunning or simply relaxing. The beds are very comfortable and there are extra blankets, pillows – and space heaters if the weather turns cold-- and fans for the warmer season. At every turn there are lovely visual surprises, chosen by people with both an artistic eye and a passion for local crafts. Each year, we have looked forward to returning to see what new creations have been added
The owner is an avid gourmet cook and a most gracious and conscientious host, easily accessible by email (and the residence’s Vonage phone) and always prompt to answer questions or resolve problems or concerns. The kitchen is equipped with high quality pots, pans and utensils, good, sharp knives (virtually unheard of in vacation rentals in our experience), wonderful ceramic dishes, both for everyday use and for decoration. The pantry is stocked with cooking basics and an array of fresh spices. The dining room is beautiful, functional and comfortably seats eight.
In all, Casa Cielo Azul exudes the unique warmth, comfort and character that comes only when a family-owned and cherished home is offered as a vacation rental. We cannot recommend it highly enough."
