Property description

'VILLA FELIZ' If you enjoy privacy, serenity and comforts this is the house for you. Rent this wonderful San Miguel Villa where you can enjoy a fabulous vacation relaxing and having fun in this very private, charming, tranquil designer home. Ideal space for two, four, six, eight or ten people.

Whether you are a couple or a group this villa is designed so visitors can have their own 'space'. Not just a bedroom door to close for privacy but two actual efficiency apartments in addition to the main house; a real retreat for an afternoon nap or an early morning cup of coffee.

Free Vonage phone service to and from the US and Canada. Broadband internet. Enjoy a free Mexican Cooking Lesson with daily cook; Guadalupe.

This house is described as four bedrooms but two of the “bedrooms” are separate apartments (only used in conjunction with the main house to provide additional privacy).
However at no time are the apartments used or rented separately from the main house. You will not share this property with other guests. The efficiency apartments could be entered from a private walkway from the front entrance of the main house.

All beds have very comfortable bedding. Good natured cook with a wonderful disposition loves to cook and will gladly teach you Mexican recipes. Relax on the rooftop garden and marvel at the panoramic views and lovely sunsets while sipping a margarita. This is paradise! Visit the web site listed below to see what other guests have said about their vacation at Villa Feliz.

Villa Feliz is located in a safe neighborhood; Enjoy concerts, lectures, plays, readings, dance performances and art openings held on a regular basis. The most popular restaurants, tennis, golf, gym, galleries and the Instituto Allende are within a short walk from Villa Feliz (no hills to climb).

San Miguel sits at 6300 feet altitude providing warm sunny days and cool nights.

Villa Feliz sleeps 2 to 10 comfortably and rates depend on the time of the year and/or the number of persons - there is also a loft that sleeps four. Well behaved children are welcome.

Both Guadalupe and Rosie (bilingual helper) are anxious for you to be comfortable and help you in any way they can. .

The cook and the maid have the unique ability to 'spoil' guests and they really please everyone who walks through the front door. They both have a wonderful disposition and always a smile and helpful nature. If you desire privacy you can easily change their work schedules.
There are many different areas to sit peacefully and relax or the grand sala and outdoor dining area where guests can meet together. The connecting apartments are a big plus in this environment where everyone in your vacation group can have their separate 'space' when desired. Guests continue to be surprised at the lovely outdoor ambiance where the weather is fabulous year round.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Grew up in the northeast. Graduated from Bucknell in Lewisburg, PA. Former school teacher and real estate broker. Retired to San Miguel from Florida. Still spend time in Vero Beach where I have family. Truly enjoy all that magical San Miguel and Vero Beach have to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Centro (Ruta Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico):
The owner built this designer villa from scratch: This house has the charm, comfort and convenience which she enjoys when in residence. She says, 'I can live anywhere in the world and my choice for the past 30 years has been to live in this delightful haven; San Miguel is perfect for me with the activities and culture galore. Gives me great pleasure to share this special place with visitors from near and far. I truly love the location and neighborhood and feel fortunate to have friendly Mexican neighbors.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It is important that my guests enjoy their special vacation in this lovely, very private and comfortable home. The peaceful and very private ambiance of the entire house will entice guests to return to Villa Feliz. The house is located in a very safe neighborhood with very friendly and helpful Mexican and Gringo neighbors. Two minute walk to the well known and friendly San Miguel Bridge Club where guests are always welcome. Guadalupe the cook/maid has the ability to 'spoil' guests and she really pleases everyone who walks through the front door. She has a wonderful disposition and always a smile and helpful nature. Rosie my bi-lingual assistant will greet you upon arrival and serve you a welcoming meal and make certain you are in comfortable surroundings with choice of sleeping areas. There are so many different spots to sit peacefully and relax or the grand sala and outdoor dining area where couples or individuals can meet together. The connecting apartments are a big plus in this environment where everyone in your vacation group can have their separate 'space' when needed or if you are a couple this house offers total privacy, seclusion and comfort. Parties: Guests at Villa Feliz can also take advantage of our in house catering service, authentic Mexican cuisine, prices to fit every budget. Plan a cocktail gathering or a Mexican dinner party .. a fun and inexpensive way to entertain the "Mexican" way. "
