Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Robert and I have always loved Mexico -- so, no surpise when we visited San Miguel we knew immediately that this was the place we wanted to be! We had owned and developed many other properties in the US, but that did not necessarily prepare us for the construction process in Mexico. But, when all was said and done, we managed to take a small run-down residential compound in the heart of the historic center of town and make it an oasis of calm and beauty, where we love to be and where we love to greet others coming to San Miguel. Whether you are tourist or are considering moving to Mexico, we would love to have you as our guests. Move the view of the map to HYBID view to see where we are!

Why the Owner Chose Centro Historico, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
San Miguel is magical - a well-deserved UNESCO World Heritage site with cobblestone streets and the occasional donkey side by side with modern restaurants and art galleries in a perfect year-round moderate climate. A Mexican friend of ours calls San Miguel '2nd world' - that is, a combination of the 3rd and 1st worlds. And that seems about right. Our house and our apartments are in the best possible location in San Miguel. Many other rental possibilities will tell you that they are some number of minutes (10, 15 sometimes 20 minues) walking distance to the Centro - but that often translates into how long it takes to get to the outskirts of the Centro. Here is why we bought where we did -- we are 1 level block from the Jardin. Period. Could hardly be closer...

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Because the weather here is mild year round, we enjoy being outdoors daily on our patios and roof terraces. Just breathing in the air, listening to the fountains and enjoying a cup of coffee outside seems to create a peaceful beginning to every day. We enjoy walking to the Jardin, sitting on the park benches and 'people-watching.' For more sophisticated pleasures, there are hot springs for swimming, 1st class restaurants to walk to, shops, museums, artisan markets or hiking in the nearby hills. Maybe Spanish classes. At the end of the day, back to the terrace to watch the sun go down over the valley -- perhaps with a glass of wine or a margarita. What could be better?
