About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a 2 bedroom condo located in Los Balcones , a quiet, secure neighborhood, just minutes away from the heart of San Miguel, in the Los Balcones area. Do not use the location in this app to see where the house is located as it is wrong. There are 2 bedrooms one with an in-suite bathroom with shower and tub. The second full bathroom with a shower that has best water pressure ever. There is a very large living room and dining room, with wonderful views of San Miguel from the heights of Los Balcones. . There is a full kitchen with an attached area that serves as a breakfast area, a den ( Smart TV with cable and internet in this area) or an additional reading room. This area also has a small outdoor porch for reading or just hanging out, as well. Each bedroom has a gas fireplace which can be used during the days (but never sleep with them on). Electric blankets are provided if you need them to sleep. I just dress cozy at night.

From the terrace, you can sit and enjoy a view of the lake, the mountains, downtown and the incredible sunsets.

Includes out house manager and house keeper Patty who comes to the house 2 days a week to clean and do laundry and she can help you with other needs should they arise.

The water system is filtered and safe, so no bottled water necessary! Though I do suggest carrying water bottles on your outings in SMA.

There is a washer and dryer in the garage downstairs. You can do your own laundry or have Patty take care of it for you. Just put the laundry in the basket in the hall closet.

A very cozy and peaceful place to enjoy while you are getting to know San Miquel!

About Karen L. Ave, DVM, PT

Hello my name is Karen Ave. My parents fell in love with San Miguel many years ago and traveled back here year after year. They eventually bought this condo after they stayed it many because it offered the best of SMA. They were close to downtown(centro a 10 minutes walk) but above the city for peaceful nights. My father and mother died recently and the casa was to become a family legacy so it was passed on to me recently.

Karen L. Ave, DVM, PT purchased this condo in 2008

Why Karen L. Ave, DVM, PT chose Colonia San Raphael

I have been traveling to SMA since 2001 and enjoy spending my vacation time there. It is beautiful, peaceful and has many activities to enjoy! The people are friendly and warn. It is an easy place to make friends you will want to make plans to come again and again. The condo is high on the side of the mountain in a barrio called Los Balcones with an amazing view of the Parochia and the city. Because it is high, the breeze keeps the house comfortable and cool in the warm months and has gas fireplaces keep the condo warm in cooler months

What makes this condo unique

Cool, quiet, scenic but very easy 10 minute walk down the hill to "Centro" .

I love the privacy and quiet but easy access to whatever I want to do.

I have stayed in the Centro but I prefer the peace and quiet and beautiful view of the parochia and the mountains especially at sunset.

A Home With A View

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely! The living room is spacious, light and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and fun to cook in. The bathrooms have abundant hot water (not always found in SMA) and it's all on one floor! The housekeeper, Patty, is kind and helpful. But, best of all, is the view - spectacular!

A vacation vista

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Casa Mariposa which is beautiful and spacious. Even though it's a steep walk back from town, it's worth it for the view and we got our exercise as well. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and having Patty (who speaks no English so knowing some Spanish is helpful) to show us the ropes was invaluable. We were very comfortable, and, though January is cooler, there were plenty of blankets and space heaters to stay warm.
