About Meg Frizzell
Your hosts are travelers too! We know how nice it is to have a “home base” where when you return each night you will have a comfortable respite. Maybe it is a vacation, but you still need to be able to access the internet so that was a priority for us. We have traveled and lived in New Zealand, Australia, most of the countries in Europe, South Africa and Tanzania. We want to thank you for staying at Casa Mirasol.
Meg Frizzell purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Meg Frizzell chose Zona Centro
We chose our condo for all the artistic Mexican craftsmanship, including the brick and cobble patterns in the driveways, the stonework in contrast to the white walls, the leaded glass for the outside staircases, all the arches, tile floors and even the tile roof. We love having a rooftop area for evening barbecue or even just a quiet moment around sunset to watch the clouds, the birds and appreciate the fresh, perfect temperature. San Miguel is a city of many small delightful neighborhoods, each with its own shops, panaderias, and restaurants, but we somehow always seem to gravitate back to this part of town. We hope that although you will explore as much of San Miguel as possible, you will enjoy coming home to Casa Mirasol.
What makes this Condo unique
I would say the uniqueness is not one thing but having in one place all the ingredients for a pleasant stay while away from home. Many rentals seem to lack a really functional kitchen so while this should not be unique, it is something that means alot to us. The beds have good mattresses and fluffy duvets. There are a variety of pillows so you can choose whether you sleep on your stomach, side or back. The flatware is new and of a good weight, Mexican dishes add local color, and there are stainless steel frypan and pots for your healthy cooking.

Wonderful, Safe and Modern!
We have visited San Miguel many times before for 4-5 weeks at a time and this is the first time that we have stayed in a gated community rather than a private home. And we had a great time! Although the condo did not have the same 'lived in' feel that the houses we have stayed in previously have, (it could use some "real" plants) it was clean, totally modern, with filtered water, dishwasher and laundry, and a large TV that was already set up with Netflix and Movies if we wanted to watch something at night! We also loved having the swimming pool to hang out by, the tennis court and the well kept grounds. We love this part of town as it is right next to a friends' art studio that we could paint at (we are both artists), close to great restaurants, and a flat walk to centro. And we also felt extremely safe!! In the past we had never worried about this, but recently there have been some incidents in San Miguel which have been concerning, so it was great not to worry about that aspect of our stay! Meg (the owner) was very communicative and available and although we never needed to speak with the property manager, they contacted us several times by e-mail to make sure that our stay was going well. All in all, we would stay here again in a heartbeat!
I am glad that your stay was enjoyable. We are more of the clutter free mentality and with others cleaning and looking after our place, managing real plants doesn't work so well. But, I also love plants which is why wandering around San Miguel is so nice. We do have the "Bougan-boys", our bougainvillea plants on the roof! Maybe we should do a weekly flower arrangement rather than just the welcome flowers? We'll think about that for your return visit. We have had some allergy issues with other guests so we need to ask prior to the visit whether flowers are appropriate.
I highly recommend staying here. The condo was clean. The ambience of the grounds was so peaceful. The Mexican birds woke us up. There is security for the whole condo complex. We would have the doors and windows open through out the day and a cool breeze would come through. The kitchen has all the utensils to cook in. I had some questions on how to operate the TV, the property manager was very helpful and came to my aid. There is a washer in the condo which was very convenient. It is walking distance to our favorite restaurant and we took taxis to centro.
I would definitely stay there again.
Thank you so much for your recommendations. We are happy that our property managers came to help you. We don't want little problems that they can solve become an irritation. I, too, love the birds. There are lots of different species, depending on when you visit, but my favorite viewing spots are from the desk that looks into a pine tree and from the patio in the evenings. We hope that you will come again.
Perfect stay in San Miguel!
My family of 4 recently stayed at Meg's condo in San Miguel de Allende. I was looking for a place that was close enough to the action to walk to but not right smack in the historic centro. I wanted a pool for my kids and I to enjoy after a day of sight seeing. I wanted some green space, a tranquil, peaceful, and quiet place (especially during Holy Week!). I wanted to be able to cook a few meals, have separate rooms and bathrooms for my 2 kids and my husband and I. I wanted to feel safe and secure. Well, I got all this and more from our stay at Casa Mirasol. Thank you Meg for your attention to all the details and for the attentive and intentional service you provided. We absolutely loved San Miguel de Allende and your condo was part of the magic. Thank you for making a tremendously special visit absolutely perfect!
I know that you really wanted the visit to be perfect and I am so happy that we were able to make your visit so special. Thank you for staying with us!
A great place to stay, clean and an easy walk to the Jardin
Casa Mirasol was a perfect stay for us as it was clean, bright and well appointed. The rooms including the bathrooms are large, modern and in very good condition. Bathroom accessories are in great shape and toilets can flush paper waste. Both bedrooms are large and about the same size and beds are firm and comfortable. Kitchen has modern and up-to-date appliances, a large refrigerator and large cooktop/oven if you prefer to cook. There is a new and large smart TV in the living room along with clean and tasteful furniture.
We found the entrance to the complex very easy to come and go and with a high level of security. We did not have a car so I really can’t address the parking situation, but it appeared that there were plenty of parking places even on the weekend. We also did not use the swimming pool, but it looked nice and clean with updated lounges and many people enjoying it, especially on the weekend.
The location of the complex was also very important to us as it was just a few minutes walk to Fabrica la Aurora which is a San Miguel destination with many art galleries, furniture design stores and restaurants. From Casa Mirasol it is also an easy 15 minute level walk to the Centro with galleries, restaurants and bars along the way. It really is very centrally located. All-in-all it was a perfect place for my wife and I to stay.
Thank you Ken. We are happy that our condo provided you with a good "home away from home" during your stay. Do come again!
LOVELY apartment with all the amenities!
We stayed here for 10 days and absolutely LOVED everything about it. The apartment is spotless and tastefully decorated. The spacious 2 bedrooms are separated by the main living area which affords privacy and quiet. They are nice balconies with sliding doors and lots of windows that provide great air flow and natural light. The beds and linens are quality and comfy. The complex is well maintained and the pool is divine (stake your claim early as there about 8 chaise lounges with umbrellas). We loved the location...an easy and interesting 10 min walk to centro and Fabrica La Aurora is directly across the street with a couple of coffee shops and restaurants.
The owner and the management team were responsive and a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. (We had a small faucet issue and the management team took care of it immediately).
The apartment and complex is very quiet...but keep in mind this is Mexico, so there will be fireworks, parades, live music, etc at ANY time in the neighborhood. Saludos!
Thank you Debi
Casa Mirasol is a comfortable and secure oasis amid the hustle and bustle of San Miguel. It is well equipped, especially the kitchen, which allowed us to cook meals when we wanted to. The property is very quiet at night and the pool was a real treat on many afternoons. The only improvement we would suggest is black-out blinds or heavy curtains in the bedrooms to block the bright morning sun. Highly recommended!
Thank you for your suggestions. Knowing what you want is how we improve.
