About the Property

Casita 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Color is everywhere in Mexico, streets and markets, food and flowers, homes and gardens. Our casita is no exception, and it clearly reflects the exuberance of rich colors freely combined in the unique Mexican way. This Mexican relationship to color is alive in our light-filled one bedroom casita, recently converted from a wing of our antique colonial home in the historical center of San Miguel. The main room with gas fireplace combines living/dining area, and kitchen with full sized fridge and stove. Sunshine beams in through skylights and two glass paneled double doors open out to your own private patio, the perfect place to enjoy meals alfresco. The bright sun filled bedroom with queen size bed has skylights for star gazing and a window facing the courtyard's fountain and flowers. The en-suite bathroom is decorated with a colorful hand painted ceramic sink. Casa Mandu is a large walled garden property containing the Casita, the owner's home, a historic adobe hacienda,and a two bedroom Garden Villa rental unit. As well, a guest suit in the main house with queen sized bed and attached bathroom is available for short term rentals for guests of our Casita or Garden Villa. The lush walled garden behind the main house is a quiet retreat for all. Our bubbling fountains will soothe away your cares as you read or relax in the shade of our 100 year old mesquite tree. Pomegranate, avocado, orange and lime trees also compliment the garden and butterflies and hummingbirds visit daily.

Maid service is provided daily and is included in the rental price.
Located in the Historic Center of San Miguel, a 3 block, level walk finds you in the main square. (El Jardin). Colonial architecture, historical landmarks, fine restaurants, cinemas, pharmacies, artisan markets, art galleries and supermarkets are all within easy walking distance.
The Canadian owner lives on site and can advise you on dining out, places to visit and arranging transportation to and from any of the area airports.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: After traveling the world and living in many countries - Canada, England, France, Italy, India and Brazil, I discovered San Miguel de Allende in Mexico in 2006 and decided to unpack my suitcases and settle down. The Spanish colonial architecture delights my eyes as I walk the cobblestone streets. The sun shines daily and the climate suits me to a T. There is an incredible expat community in this town, many are travelers like myself, artists and writers. I enjoy the banquet of cultural activities the town has to offer, live theater, music festivals and art openings. And San Miguel has one of the largest English libraries in Latin America. As an avid reader this is a big bonus for me. It took two years to convert my old adobe house with large garden into a guest house with three units. Renovating and decorating is my passion and I have built and remodeled homes in Canada, England, and France.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
Our property is located in the heart of the historic center a few minutes walk to everything, yet the garden provides a quiet welcome oasis in which to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of the lush vegetation. I wanted to be in the center of town, close to everything.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Right in the historical heart of San Miguel, I can be in the Jardin in a few minutes. There is no need to have a car since everything is close by. Walking the quiet cobblestone streets, lined with flowers, on the way to my favorite cafe reminds me always to be grateful that I chose San Miguel as home. Magic happens here on a daily basis, and at Casa Mandu I am right in the center of it all, but our garden oasis is the perfect place to relax with a book or just sit and watch the butterflies flit from flower to flower.
