Why Marlene johansing chose San Miguel de Allende

The colonial town of San Miguel is my home.I live here because it is peaceful and tranquil. The people are gentle and friendly. Mexico is so much more then the coast or border towns often thought os as Mexico. It is a country with a rich history.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in centro all museums, cultural activities,shopping and most resturants are within a couple of blocks.

Couldn't be better!!!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that hasn't already been said in the other reviews. We loved this apartment and we loved Marlene, our host. The apartment is so lovely, and one of my criteria is a comfortable bed. And it is! The apartment has a lovely rooftop terrace, great for afternoon naps, and evening happy hours. The location can't be beat, near all of our favorite restaurants, markets, activities etc. Marlene's assistants, Ana and Jose, are delightful and helpful. Thank you Marlene for your hospitality, introducing me to your friends, our writing class and the tour of the clay studio. See you next year.

Vibrant San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week in San Miguel at this apartment and could not have been happier. The location is perfect, close to Centro basically a block and half off the main square. The apartment itself was nothing like I have stayed at before as it is designed and decorated in the traditional way for the area.

I golfed almost everyday which I needed a cab to get to the courses. Walking out the door, I never had to wait more than 2 minutes for a cab to come right by my door and you can get anywhere in San Miguel for 3 to 4 dollars. Walking out the door everything is at your finger tips and there is so much to see, the city is vibrant is the only way I know how to explain it.

The owner was incredibly accommodating as I arrived after midnight and with a touch of the flu. Not only was she helpful with things to do, she set me up with a doctor that her handy man took me because my Spanish is not good. Her helper that takes care of the cleaning went above and beyond as I also needed laundry done which was taken care of while I was golfing. Could not have been happier with the accommodations.

Visit San Miguel de Allende

  • 5 of 5

My 5 y/o daughter and I visited San Miguel de Allende for the first time in April, arriving just after the Easter celebrations that are so colorful. Our week long stay was fantastic and incredibly memorable for layers of reasons. Meeting Marlene, the owner of our apartment, and enjoying a couple delicious comidas at her place with her lively friends coupled with our action packed days full of the simple pleasures of exploring SM to excursions outside of town we couldn't have asked for more. And when we were just getting started it was time to leave!

Here's how I would promote a trip to San Miguel de Allende:

Take me to San Miguel de Allende!

Experience arts, culture, and world class cuisine in the well preserved, colonial-era, and simply gorgeous San Miguel de Allende. Stay in a fully outfitted private apartment (part of a 350 year old original home) in the historic center of town, located just one block from the famous Jardin and main plaza. Walk to all the sights, museums, parks, and fabulous restaurants and allow yourself to absorb the rich spirit of central Mexico. Live a little and visit a nearby ranch for some horseback riding, rise above it all in a hot air balloon, and then soak your muscles at local hot springs, and maybe grab a bite at Nirvana.

The easy 2 hour flight from LA to Leon and simple shuttle connection to SMdeA makes this gem of a destination even better!

Great location, quiet apartment, rooftop views

  • 5 of 5

We returned to this vibrantly decorated apartment for a second year -- it's a block and a half from the Jardin and close to restaurants, shops, and the flower, produce, and artisans market. The outdoor space includes a small, well landscaped courtyard and a serene rooftop garden with views of five historic churches. The apartment features colorful decor and excellent folk art with several interesting pieces of furniture and a comfortable king size bed. The owner's staff -- Ana and Jose -- provide smiles plus daily maid and gardening service.

There is not a better location in SM. 1 1/2 blocks from the jardin and around the corner from the biblioteca. The apartment has everything you need and is decorated with art work. A great place to stay.
