Located in the very safe oldest part of town, a warren of narrow cobblestone streets. Walk only 4 1/2 blocks from the main square or 'jardin' as the locals call it, and the Instituto Allende and the Plaza Civica with its open air artesian and vegetable markets are also only 4 blocks away.

Private entrance on a quiet cobblestoned street. You will enjoy the modern Mexican tiled, full kitchen with French doors open to the view. The garden rooftop vistas are breathtaking in all directions, with a private eating area and chaise lounge and a shared gazebo with table for dining or wireless internet use.

Gas fireplaces in living room and bedroom provide warmth. Maid and garden service provided. Within a block you will find several Mexican mini groceries, vegetable markets and the friendly oldest cantina in town.

It is also a short walk to the Jardin Botanico canyon and nature preserve, the beautiful Parque Juarez, and 1 block to the Casa de Cultura. You won't want to leave this beautiful place.

About Megan and Gordon

We live in Olympia, Washington, but we lived with our youngest son in San Miguel for a year in 2008/2009. Our son went to a Mexican school for his 8th grade year.

Megan and Gordon purchased this Apartment in 2006

Why Megan and Gordon chose Zona Centro

We purchased this casita for its easy access the rich culture of San Miguel, the friendliness of the people and the opportunity to be part of this unique community.

What makes this Apartment unique

We especially enjoy the nightly sunsets over the sierra from the french door windows in the kitchen/dining room. We enjoy being close to the central square, the open market, the Institute Allende and language schools. We enjoy moutain biking with the 'Bici-Burro' bike shop just two blocks away.

                                                            San Miguel is the best!!

                                                            William W.

                                                            San Miguel is the best and this apartment is clean, nicely equipped and well maintained . The view of the city and surrounding countryside is astounding. This property is highly recommended.

                                                            Great location in Historical area, lots to offer!!

                                                            Donald M.

                                                            We had a very enjoyable stay at this apt.( Jan 17-31, 2018). Apt tastefully decorated Mexican style, beautiful Mexican artwork and pottery and ceramics. Bed very comfortable, bathroom newly tiled, very clean. Maid and gardener lovely ladies, friendly, kept apt and patio very clean.Abraham ( apt mgr) and his office staff very helpful.During our stay it was quite cool in the mornings and evenings, definitely needed the extra layers at that time of day. In contrast though, our rooftop terrace was very warm mid day until the sun set. And the terrace was very spacious, comfortable furniture and spectacular views of the city.

                                                            We ( seniors aged 70 and 81) walked everywhere, despite my husbands bad hip, he managed the hills just fine ( used a cane and glad he did).Three flights of stairs were not really a problem.

                                                            Parque Juarez close by was beautiful, quite a gem..visit on weekends to enjoy the local artists and their displays.

                                                            Easy walk to Centro and all the activities it provided daily.

                                                            You have to visit the oldest cantina in SM, El Manantial, few doors down the street from this apt. Great place to enjoy Happy Hour, or dinner and drinks, staff and locals are most friendly.

                                                            Only downside ( and this is minor): have to agree with previous guest ( Nick H Dec 2017) who said he would have preferred a comfortable sofa for relaxing in the evening..the twin bed and pillows looked great but not cosy enough.

                                                            All in all we loved our stay, apt is in a great location, being able to walk everywhere a real plus!!

                                                            SMA is a beautiful city with so much to offer..

                                                            A perfect place to stay for longer

                                                            Nick H.

                                                            It was our second stay at this apartment and we loved as we did the first time a year ago. Again we stayed for a whole month. It is conveniently located near the town center, only minutes to walk to the jardin. Its roof top terrace offers great views over the city and colorful sunsets.The apartment has all you need when you are a way from home: a well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, TV, great internet reception. The maid service is perfect and lovely. Only thing I would wish: a comfortable couch to sit in the evenings. Who knows, maybe next time it is there.

                                                            High, cool and comfy

                                                            Randy D.Shreveport, Louisiana

                                                            This apartment is on the third floor and normally I would not even attempt such a thing. But I figured ok, try it, even with my knees which are sometimes challenged. But it was a great, airy one bedroom...just what I needed. The cross ventilation and cool nights were perfect. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very nice. The whole place is very clean and the cleaner who came twice in the week I was there was friendly and did a very good job and was very helpful with laundry. Downside: San Miguel is on the side of a mountain and the cobblestone streets and narrow sidewalks can be a challenge but if you've done your research you know what you're getting into. The people I met along the way were cordial. I even lost weight because I walked every where and only restored to the easy to get and use taxis three times the whole week. The apartment is at the bottom of a very narrow street so it is not a real challenge and it is indeed close to the center (the Jardin Allende). I enjoyed my stay.

                                                            Great place

                                                            john n.

                                                            The apartment was great!

                                                            Clean and neat, it had everything.

                                                            Location was fine for me but for older folks it may be a bit far form centro.

                                                            Taxis are cheap and easy to get.

                                                            I would love to return!

                                                            great price, perfect location and the terrace for morning and evening enjoyment was "tops"!!

                                                            William "Tomas" C.

                                                            First, let me say that when we return to SMA it will be in Apt. 3 (top apt) of Gordon and Meg's lovely "home" away from home. The BdRm was large with a view of the city. All the comforts were afforded us including a very well stocked kitchen.

                                                            The location was in walking distance to "Everything and everywhere".

                                                            The top outside terrace had a fantastic view of the city and many of its beautiful churches and of giant air balloons floating gracefully over the city early every morning with the sun catching their beautiful bright multicolored markings. In the late afternoon it was a perfect place to chill out with a Ginger Margarita and watch the sun descend behind our location.

                                                            Thank you Meg and Gordon!
