"We loved this house!! A quick walk to the center with restaurants, shops, street vendors and taxis. The kitchen has everything you need if you like to cook. Visit the Mega store for your supplies. We loved the restaurant Hecho en Mexico and the staff at this house were lovely. Gracias!"

"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."

"Stan and Joanna have put so much love and care into Casa del Alma—it shows in all the details. Not just the amazing art and decor, but the thoughtful household supplies and extras that are too numerous to count! From the gorgeous, totally equipped kitchen with filtered water, to spare Post-It notes and paper clips, this magical house of color lacks nothing. I think we took as many pictures of the house as we did other sites in San Miguel, it's that beautiful. Don't miss the little El Rinconcito restaurant on Calle Refugio, walking distance from the house. Simple, absolutely delicious food. We walked everywhere: in and out of narrow streets to El Centro, the Mercado de Artesanias, Via Organica natural foods/restaurant, and dozens of art galleries. Take a short cab ride to the big Tuesday market (Tianguis del Martes). It's a magical city, and Casa del Alma is a magical place to stay. Stan and Joanna have raised the bar for vacation rentals; I’m not sure any place else will come close."

"The "flower pot" is a very well supplied house in a spectacular neighborhood. As someone who comes to San Miguel every year, this was my first experience in Colonia San Antonio, and I was delighted. Everything is here - from "fruterias" to butchers and chicken stores. You are easy walking distance from the Ancha de San Antonio, with its restaurants and the Instituto, and a short walk beyond that to the center of town.
The secret delight of the house is the roof, which is equipped like an outdoor room with grill, refrigerator, sink, bed, even a full bath with a shower. My husband and I worked from this level every day, enjoying the warm air and view of the Parroquia. It's great to have a bathroom on every floor -- so convenient. Everything was charming and worked well. I am glad to be able to put this house on my "will visit again" list."
