WELCOME TO CASA ROJA!
We offer a PRIVATE, EN SUITE apartment with a lovely COURTYARD AND GARDEN in San Miguel de Allende! Our house is located in a Mexican neighborhood and while there are English speaking neighbors nearby all of our immediate neighbors are Spanish speaking.
THE APARTMENT has spacious rooms that open to a private, stone courtyard that includes a fish pond! It is located on the first floor which is above the ground floor and is accessed via a flight of stairs.

All of the rooms have their own entrance from the patio in the true Mexican style and are all secure with their own locks.

SOME THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE RENTING: 1) the neighborhood is MEXICAN. It can be noisy at times especially fiestas. There may be music and fire works. Also, Mexicans stay up late. There will often be adults and children out talking and laughing til midnight. 2) San Miguel is at an ELEVATION of 6,400 feet. 3) Our house is UP A HILL – not a really big hill, but still a hill. For a very flat walk to the center of town consider renting in Colonia Guadalupe. 4) In March, April and May we can have a lot of WIND and DUST. 5) Cleaning is provided ONCE a WEEK which includes a change of towels and sheets. Extra cleaning can be arranged at an additional cost. 6) TOILET PAPER goes into a small bucket next to the toilet. Our town's sewage treatment system is not up to USA standards. 7) Taxis drive by the house frequently (usually).
