A sanctuary in San Miguel!
The pictures do not do justice this property! It was a lovely and comfortable place to stay for a week in San Miguel. The location was great....a short walk to the Centro and easy enough to go out for awhile, come back for a siesta and then head out again. Also loved how close it was to the Artesian Market. The layout was ideal for us, as we were two women traveling together and loved having our own rooms, bathrooms and even floors!
Comfy beds and we adjusted to the funky gas heaters and used a few times in the mornings and evenings as it did get cool. We loved the rooftop deck and enjoyed the sunset and a glass of wine several times before dinner. The kitchen was well equipped, though we did not do much cooking as there are so many great restaurants in SMA. Would come back here again happily!
Absolutely recommend you stay at this house. The architectural design and decore of the house is high end, and very clean. Definitely would rent again!
An incredible find
We spent five nights in this jewel box of a home—we used it as our home base for various adventures around town and also as a hideaway when we wanted to read and write (there’s a great office for those activities, but we really loved using the rooftop terrace, too, with its striking potted cacti and a fantastic view of SMA). We also had guests over for a great dinner prepared by the wife of the owner’s house manager for a reasonable fee. The kitchen is warm and versatile. The amenities in general are terrific—the owner has imagined every need ahead of time. We felt in very good hands!
Thanks so much, Barbara! I hope you'll return!
Truly a gem
My wife and I spent a week at Casita Laurita in June and enjoyed every minute of our stay. It is a wonderful home in a magical city. The location simply cannot be beat. Calle Loreto is a quiet street and a stones throw from the jardin and everything else that you want to walk to and see in San Miguel. My wife and I spent every morning on the rooftop terrace listening to the birds in the morning and watching the sunset at night. If you look close enough there is a view of the Parroquia from the terrace. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything that we needed; the jug of filtered water is a nice touch as well! We slept well every night with the window open and the cool breeze blowing through the room. We had the fan on but never woke up once because of street noise. From the artwork to the architectural elements everywhere you look there is something new to see and appreciate at Casita Laurita. You can tell that the house was built with love and is truly a home to be enjoyed. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
Thank you so much! I’m delighted you enjoyed the house and your time in SMA!
One of the best Streets in town - comfy house - great roof terrace!
Had a wonderful month at Casa Laurita in San Miguel - the location is perfect, the house efficient and comfortable - the connected staff terrific and responsive. The outdoor space is delightful- and watching hot air balloons pass over in the early morning was a highlight! I love the town and the Garden Botanico and the markets and creativity of the Mexican artisans.
So happy I rented this great spot for a month!
Thanks, Holly, so happy you enjoyed the house! Guillermo told me you were a great guest. Hope you return!
Artisan market, cafes, restaurants, arboretum, nearby Spanish schools and art schools, dance classes, cooking classes, galleries, design center, near jardin. Great organic shopping right nearby.

About Laura Fraser
Laura first came to San Miguel de Allende with her family when she was ten years old, to learn a little Spanish and a different culture (smart parents!). It was a wonderful childhood experience that made her forever interested in languages and travel. When she returned to SMA in 2007, she fell back in love with the magical town and bought a run-down lot in the Centro on an impulse. Everyone thought she was crazy, until a year later, when they saw the amazing house she'd built with her architect and friend, Anja Fauske.
Laura Fraser purchased this House in 2008
Why Laura Fraser chose Zona Centro
Location, location, location. Casita Laurita is on one of San Miguel's best streets--Calle Loreto. It runs through the artisan market, is convenient to the design center, and three blocks to the jardin in the center of town. It's a great location, and yet retains an authentic feeling of Mexico. It's wonderful to be right near the market and to live on a small, curving street with little traffic.
What makes this House unique
I built this house to my aesthetic and practical tastes, with a lot of light and indoor-outdoor living. The house is comfortable and relaxing, with three terraces, and the top has a protected, splendid view of all of San Miguel. The office is beautiful, and a wonderful place to work, with an extensive lending library. Flowering plants on all floors, everything simple and elegant, and the kitchen has all the tools (sharp knives! Le Creuset!) a cook could desire. The neighbors are friendly and there has not been a robbery on my street in 30 years. I always feel safe walking around by myself at night. Please note that this house is not for people who have mobility challenges, as there are a lot of stairs. This also isn't the house for you if you require a large livingroom with a giant TV.
