"My husband and I returned to San Miguel after our first trip in 2012. This time we were with two couples who had not been to the City. On our recommendation, we stayed again at Casa Pina, where we had stayed in 2012. The other four were seasoned travelers, and so we held our breath, hoping that they would love Casa Pina as much as we had the first time we were there. We needn't have worried. They were as charmed as we were, and thanked us many times for bringing them to this magical home.
Maria and Theresa, the cook and housekeeper, were there again, and were again attentive to our needs . . . and patient with our lack of Spanish speaking skills. Again, we did not take advantage of the lunches that they would have provided, but enjoyed their wonderful breakfasts every morning, as well as one dinner prepared at our request. The house was also beautifully maintained and picked up for our return each late afternoon or evening. Aleida, the owner, was also available to answer any questions that we had, as was the English speaking property manager.
The location of the house is without peer. Within 1 1/2 blocks of the Jardin, and very near to the action while being very quiet and secluded. The design and decoration of the house are also very special. Three very private bedroom areas gave each couple all the privacy that they might want, while the common areas (particularly the living/dining room that is open to the courtyard, gave ample space for our time together. A second living room and dining room are available, but seldom used because we didn't want to leave the open air living area and large fireplace - perfect for eliminating any early morning or evening chill.
In addition to the ample private areas, the Wi-Fi helped those of us who had to do a little work while we were there."

"My wife, my dog and I stayed here in December. We had the upstairs apartment and it was great. The owner was there during our stay. She is very kind, and a talented artist and poet. She was very helpful throughout our stay with recommendations, advice, and even booked things for us to do!
The apartment is fully furnished and is in a fantastic location. It was an easy walk to Centro and most anywhere we wanted to go. If we wanted to go further out, taxis were not too expensive and easy to pick up a few blocks away. There are fresh produce markets nearby on the weekend and many small neighborhood shops should you need something straight away."

"My husband and I rented Casa Gilberto for the month of February 2015 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The 2-bedroom home was everything we wanted and had everything we needed. The gardens are lovely. The Pratts (who live next door) are outstanding hosts, welcoming, available as needed, and ever helpful. We enjoyed our daily walk to the centre of town (El Jardin) whick took about 15 minutes, all downhill. After a few days of adjusting to the altitude (SMA is over 5000 feet above sealevel), I started to enjoy the walk back up as well. For those not inclined, taxis to anywhere in San Miguel cost a very affordable 35 pesos. SMA itself is a wonderful place, so much to do, and no need for a car. We warmly recommend Casa Gilberto based on experience, as well as the 2nd smaller property based on looks."

"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."
