About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Each bedroom has its own bath with tub and shower, with a mini-bidet in the master bath and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. All water is purified with ultraviolet and activated charcoal, and the hot water is plentiful.
Ceilings in the master bedroom and dining room are arched brick, known as boveda. A skylight in the master bath provides cross ventilation and a view of the sky when you shower or bathe.
Above the master bedroom is the azotea, a covered terrace with two open walls, stone columns, a gas fireplace and a mini fridge. A 6-foot wrought iron screen is patterned on a Picasso etching of artist and model. This is the spot for a quiet read in the afternoon and drinks at sunset.
The house is seven minutes from San Miguel's two major markets. The food market is filled with wonderful fresh fruits, vegetables and flowers, and the artisan's market has dozens of stalls filled with rugs, ceramics, metalwork, leather goods, clothing and jewelry, most sold by the families who made it.
Another five minutes (all level) brings you to the Jardin, the heart of San Miguel. Good restaurants are a ten minute walk from the house, and the kitchen is well equipped to create wonderful dinners from the bounty of the area. The famous hot springs are ten minutes by taxi.
Day trips include the potteries of Dolores Hidalgo and the exotic stone landscape of Pozos Minerales. The amazing reserve where the Monarch butterflies return each year from their journeys to Canada and the US is a memorable overnight trip.
Some guests comments:
'What a treat it was to spend a month here – convenient location, great layout, and beautiful décor. Fine architectural details set the house apart; we never grew tired of looking at it. We loved the location – a brisk 7-minute walk to the center of town. In addition, being in a cul-de-sac meant quietness. Numerous small shops dot our daily walk, making it a delight in exploring and discovery. Visiting friends put the guest room to test. They loved it and, as we did, marveled at the beauty of the house. Free technology such as Vonage phone and WIFI sure made staying in touch with family and friends easy. We feel fortunate to have chosen this house as our home away from home – the comfort, beauty, and the owner’s hospitality made our visit to San Miguel most memorable.'
'Everything was great. The house was very well equipped for cooking in, there were plenty of linens and it was very comfortable. Javier was responsive to any questions we had and had excellent follow up. It actually ended up being a great location for our family and was kid friendly. Nicholas (our 5 1/2 year old) played outside with the local kids every day and the fact that the house was on a dead end made it easy for us as parents to let him play outside without worry. the place was perfect for us and we'd recommend it.'
'Our stay in this beautiful home can be summed up in one word, HEAVENLY. The sound of the courtyard fountain, the ultra-comfy beds, and the open-air setting was incredibly refreshing. We slept late, ate breakfast on the terrace, and had a difficult time leaving the comforts of the house for day trips. Everything was absolutely exceptional from the cleanliness to the decor! The location was perfect- a short walk to shops and restaurants and we always felt very safe. We felt as though we had our own luxury Mexican Villa for the price of an American hotel room. We can't wait to return!!'

About the owner: I have been staying in VRBO homes in Europe for years, getting to really know neighborhoods. I return from each trip with a broader sense of the world and a deeper appreciation for other cultures... and for my home in the Hudson River valley.
Why the Owner Chose Centro Historico, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
I spent the last three days of my first trip to San Miguel looking at more than 30 lots and houses. When I turned into this quiet little privada, I knew this was the place I wanted to be. I worked with a wonderful Mexican architect to build a house that was comfortable, beautiful and environmentally responsible.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I think the house is in one of the best neighborhoods in San Miguel, a few minutes from the Jardin and the market but away from the tourists. The kids on our block are friendly and inclusive, as are their parents.
