Steps to Jardin, Rooftop View of Parroquia Next Door!

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

This is a centuries old house of 'original construction.' Exact dating unavailable due to revolutionary destruction of municipal records in early 20th C., but the thick walls which hold coolness in heat of day, the interior courtyard, the scallop shell decorative motifs [reference to St. John's baptisms with sea shell] and the very central location adjacent to Parrochia all confirm its authenticity.

Large 'great room' [15' x 35'] adjacent to kitchen [cocina] with 2 sinks, refrigerator, gas stove, water cooler, fully furnished, and the courtyard with fountain, flowers and plantings and garden furnishings.

Large Master bedroom with large closet and a full bath on first floor adjacent to kitchen and courtyard.

Alhambral bedroom of Moorish design with 2 single beds off courtyard with full bath.

Rooftop 'Casita' bedroom with large closet and a full bath adjacent to spectacular rooftop view of Parrochia next door and scenic surrounding hills and sunsets behind Parrochia Dome!

Wonderfully convenient to all centro advantages: Post office, DHL office, money exchanges and banks, restaurants, shopping, and the Jardin.

Holiday rates are greater than quoted rates here.

Great location,lovely home !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Harry, for sharing your beautiful home with us!! Loved how close it was to el jardin,restaurants and anything you need..the home was very spacious,comfortable and all the amenities that we like to have. Wifi in the main living area,English channels on TV, availability of local/international phone.

We went to Guanajuato one day on a bus tour. Excellent!

One day we had a two hour massage(50.00), well worth the money.

We discovered many restaurants ..our favorite was mamma Mia and tapas..all within walking distance. We participated in a Zumba class on Saturday morning in the park.

Wonderful city!!! We will definitely come back!!!! Thanks again !!!

A wonderful vacation

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location a block from the Jardin (plaza). A spacious colonial home which has kept its authentic charm rather than be remodeled to fit some decorator's concept of magazine perfection. Yet the house has enough modern amenities for comfort, including heaters in every room for these cold November nights. Our one recommendation - please upgrade the beds. Our king bed in the main bedroom was so stiff and hard that we joked that they were the stone platforms from the pyramids.

Owner's Response: Thanks for lovely review...although I would add that all mattresses are top brand and new, but I do prefer a firm mattress on the King and while not pyramid stone hard, I cannot abide a sink in soft surface which is all a matter of personal preference I suppose. In any case, never heard of sleep lost on this matter...gracias."

Great house near Jardin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, large home located a block from the main square (where all the action is, especially on weekends!). We had a wonderful time and stayed a week. The home is very spacious and only used the kitchen for breakfast. It was nice to be able to watch TV in the evenings. This home has a washer and dryer which was very convenient after traveling in Mexico for two weeks. The view from the roof top was very romantic. The church bells were ringing all the time but after a couple of days we did not notice them. The street is very lively which we did not mind at all since we like crowds and noise.

One block from the Parroquia on my favorite street in SMA. Spacious rooms, tranquil courtyard with fountain, rooftop terrace with stunning sunset views, spotless housekeeping. All three bedrooms have their own bath. Very private within and right in the center of activity. Tremendous value. It will be our home for all future visits.

The location cannot be beat

  • 5 of 5

Harry communicated very clearly and in a timely manner to set up the rental of Casa Solano. I really appreciated that. In his words, "The location cannot be beat." The house is just around the corner from El Jardin, and as the photos show the Parroquia dominates the view from the rooftop terrace (though there is a chain link fence marring that view somewhat). The house itself is delightful and beautiful, which the photos also clearly demonstrate. There is plenty of room to spread out with three nice rooms for sleeping. One downstairs room has a single bed, the master bedroom has a king size, and the bed upstairs is a double. Each bedroom has a bathroom either off of it or across from it (in the case of the downstairs patio room). There is a washing machine and also a dryer, which is not common in Mexico. Also, the hot water tank is a full sized one, not an "on demand" tank which is the usual for Mexico. Things were done right here for a comfortable stay. The wireless is really only useable in the living/dining room due to the thick stone walls blocking the signal to the rest of the house. The kitchen is very good for cooking and has most basic cooking tools. There are not, however, any "starter" ingredients other than salt and pepper, so anything else needed must be purchased. There were also not umbrellas, which would be handy to have in the summer rainy season when it can really pour rain. The church bells, which are ubiquitous in Mexico, are very clearly heard but do not ring "all night". We did not find them to bother our sleep. The fountain was very charming to have on for sleeping and otherwise. What one does NOT hear in the house is traffic (though there is a fair amount of auto traffic on Solano) or dogs barking all night (which can be a problem in Mexico). We needed to wait a fair while on the street for Lucha to arrive after we had arrived (despite two phone calls regarding our arrival time), but otherwise she was a tremendous help (arranging an electrician, for example, when we had a short circuit in a fuse). Juan the gardener is extremely friendly, and Lupita will spend the day with you when it's her cleaning day. They keep the place up well, are friendly, but will otherwise be hanging out with you on their work days (especially Lupita). If we were to return to San Miguel with children we would definitely stay here again. Otherwise, for a couple the house is pretty big. It's a great place to use as a base for San Miguel.
