About the Property
BEAUTIFUL ONE BEDROOM APARTMENT WITH LOVELY COURTYARD!
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.
THE LIVING ROOM: The living room is artistically and tastefully decorated in the San Miguel style. The furnishings are comfortable and stylish. There are pieces of various styles from the local area. The living room is large and bathed in sunlight. The dining area sits up to 6 for large meals with family and friend.
There is a flatscreen TV with cable channels some of which are in English. There is also a DVD player and a Roku device with Netflix.
THE KITCHEN: The kitchen is nicely equipped with hand made Mexican tile! (The owner is a chef and knows what you need for a good home cooked meal)! There is a coffee maker, electric tea kettle, gas range, microwave and toaster provided.
THE BATH: The bathroom is large! It includes full walk in shower with Mexican tile plus double sinks in a separate room. (There is no tub.) A hair dryer is provided
THE BEDROOM: The bedroom is large and lovely. It has soft light filtering in and is PERFECT for sleeping! The bed headboard was HAND MADE of wrought iron crafted by a local artisan! We leave extra heaters, down comforters and electric mattress pads in case of chilly nights which will occur during the winter months.
THE OFFICE: There is a extra room off the bedroom that can be used as a sleeping space for a child, an office or walk-in closet! There is also a cot for a child or young adolescent.
2ND BEDROOM: There may be a second bedroom with en suite bath available to rent. Contact us for availability. Cost is $20 per night. Call (541) 683-7779 to check availability.
All of the rooms have their own entrance from the patio in the true Mexican style and are all secure with their own locks.
From the second floor there is access to the large roof terrace and it's WONDERFUL VIEWS of the city and the nearby mountains. Sunsets from the roof terrace are often spectacular. The downstairs apartment has open access to the roof.
THE COURTYARD: FANTASTIC!! Large, lush, comfortable and easily accessible from all areas of the house. Sit, read, sleep, dream.... Your oasis awaits!
THE NEIGHBORHOOD: 1.4 km or .87 mi to the center of town (El Jardin), or a short taxi ride. We are located southeast of El Jardin in Colonia Caracol which is up a fairly gentle hill from the town center.
There is a large gourmet grocery, lots of fruit stands, tons of restaurants, bakery and everything you want or need within walking distance!
GREEN!! Casa Roja is equipped with a water purification system throughout the entire house. Hot water is supplied by a solar hot water system with a gas water heater as backup. Also, the water system is pressurized. We recycle glass, plastic, metal paper and cardboard.
A washer and dryer is provided for guests. All bedding and towels are provided.
CASA ROJA: A GREAT PLACE TO CALL HOME!!
25% discount from standard rates for the months of April through November! Rate information included in NOTE section below the Rates listed after the review section. For rates longer than a month contact the owner by email or phone - (541) 683-7779.
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).
Map coordinates: Latitude N 20.902074 and Longitude W 100.743338. On the LOCATION MAP below our house is located just under the first "A" in CARACOL.
