Located just a five minute walk from the Jardin and Parroquia (the main plaza and church) on one of the city’s most desirable streets, Casa Rana Feliz (House of the Happy Frog) is centrally located near all of the wonderful amenities that San Miguel has to offer. You’ll enter through the original mesquite front door through the zaguan (entry way) and into the flower and plant-filled interior courtyard, around which are nestled the rooms of this charming, San Miguel-style home.
The dining room – with a large wood table easily accommodating six – is to your right as you enter the house. Pass through the beautiful archway into the comfortable, light-filled living room, which features a cantera stone fireplace, and high wood beam and brick ceiling. Electronics include a Samsung Smart TV (with cable channels in English and Spanish), DVD player and CD player.
Across the courtyard you will find the spacious Mexican-tiled kitchen, which features a traditional horizontal gas burner stove and hood. Off the kitchen is a breakfast nook, with French doors opening out into the courtyard and fountain – a lovely place to enjoy a cup of coffee and the latest edition of Atencion (San Miguel’s weekly English newspaper and events listing). The courtyard also features an outdoor grilling area for entertaining, and a half bath under the stairs.
Head up the stairs and enjoy the sound of the fountain as you relax in the inviting, fern-filled outdoor sala, just outside of the Master Bedroom – the perfect spot for a leisurely afternoon read.
The Master Bedroom features a fireplace, boveda (domed brick) ceiling, desk with Wifi and phone, and a Sealy American Queen high-end mattress. The ensuite bath features a tub and shower with brass fixtures, boveda ceiling, and a large adjoining walk-in closet.
The Second Bedroom is across the courtyard at the opposite end of the house, offering plenty of privacy. It also features a fireplace, boveda ceiling with cupola, and Sealy American Queen high-end mattress. The ensuite bath features a shower and adjoining closet.
The spiral staircase to the third floor may be steep, but it is well worth the 270 degree views from the terrace! The sunsets are spectacular, and the terrace - with pots of jasmine and bougainvillea - will likely be your favorite hangout spot to recount your day’s adventures in San Miguel.
