About Susan Hassenplug
We are a retired professional couple who live in Lake Tahoe, CA. We are actively involved in our community, volunteering and participating in local events. We enjoy continuing this lifestyle in San Miguel by taking art and language courses, attending music and live theater events, and the wide variety of cultural festivities that take place often in San Miguel. We love nature and gardening, as is evident in our garden at Villa Colibri. We would love to share our home with you!
Susan Hassenplug purchased this House in 2004
Why Susan Hassenplug chose Guadiana
We choose San Miguel de Allende because of its charm, warm people, and beautiful colonial setting. There is an abundance of art, music, theater, and wonderful restaurants to enjoy while relaxing in our beautiful home.
What makes this House unique
Our property is unique because it is located in a residential area yet is a short and beautiful walk to downtown through the park (Parque Juarez). It has a lovely and private garden with a fountain for a relaxing atmosphere. Finally, we love the tasteful and authentic Mexican decorations throughout our home. Wi-Fi available.

A piece of paradise!!
The house is absolutely lovely and the gardens spectacular! We found peace, beauty and function all in one property! The location is good, as it is a flat walk to the historic center, the park, and shopping. We heard all the lovely sounds of San Miguel, roosters, bells, and parades but it was always quiet at night! We are coming back!
Villa Colibrì is a beautiful, restorative, very lovely place to be in a city that must be seen.
Many reviews already outline the luxurious and delightful details of the Hassenplug home. I’ll not repeat those words other than to heartily agree. Certainly I feel the opportunity to stay in such a wonderful setting is a gift to all of us who come their way. We were charmed by San Miguel de Allende. The world needs more of this Mexico. We were fortunate to enjoy the Christmas season of posadas, the Parochia and many other cathedral settings. Divine! Our favorite restaurants are El Pegaso, Nectar and La Mancha coffee shop. They took very good care of us and we soon became friends. I’ll admit we went to Starbucks, but it was fun, and we only took a taxi twice: out to the Charco and the Mirador lookout. It’s a beautiful, beautiful time. We leave warmed, cheered and energized. Thank you John and Susan!
Five wonderful weeks in San Miguel
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Colibri in San Miguel. The house is beautiful and we never tired of looking at the many decorative objects and the garden and it even had a washing machine and dryer which was wonderful since we were there for almost five weeks. The house is about 30 to 45 minutes walking to the Jardin. We enjoyed taking a new route each day. We recommend taking the city walking tour sponsored by the Library when you first get here.
You will find everything you need just a short block from the house on Cinco de Mayo. On that block there is a tienda that has most everything, a fruit and vegetable market, a tortilla store, chicken wing restaurant, barber/beauty shop, and a really good restaurant called Pork Belly. You also can get bus #7 at the corner of Cinco de Mayo and Calle Moras that will take you right to the Centro for 7 Pesos.
It should be noted that San Miguel has no traffic lights or stop signs and pedestrians always have right of away. It seems to work fine. July and August when we were there is the so-called rainy season, but it didn't rain that much and then only a slight sprinkle in the late afternoon. Also internet service was somewhat intermittent, especially during daytime hours.
We would highly recommend this listing, but hope it doesn't become too popular because we may want to return.
Best of the Best Mexican Colonial!
Better than the photos, perfect location - wonderful!
Beautiful house with enchanting garden
I so enjoyed my one month stay last September at Villa Colibri that I can't possibly say enough good things about it! The elegant house with the incredibly beautiful garden is in a wonderful neighborhood where one can walk to the center of town as well as many neighborhood restaurants. Local markets and stores are conveniently located within a couple of blocks. I think I found the best breakfast tamales at the stand a half block away at the end of Moras at Cinco de Mayo. The owners could not have been nicer and were attentive to all my needs and requests. I hope to stay at Villa Colibri again.
Perfect House for San Miuel Vacation
Our two week visit in this Casa was beyond amazing! It filled our hearts with joy! The personality of the house made us fell like a a resident rather than a tourist. It was clean, comfortable and well situated with the beauty of Mexican aesthetes . The outdoor garden patio and lovely water fountain was soothing to the soul. It was my favorite area for morning coffee watching the humming birds and butterflies only to return in the late afternoon to enjoy wine before returning to our favorite restaurant Tio Lucas. The owner left a book of instruction with map and tips which guided us to enjoy the town. The property manager and gardener was joyous and most helpful. Paula also took very good care of us! My only regret we had to leave and by posting this glowing review others will discover our treasure and it will become more difficult for us to return.Oh! one more thing....the photos do not express the true beauty of the house. We will return!
Historical San Miguel de Allende is the birthplace of the Mexican fight for independence. It has classic Spanish colonial architecture and an outstanding mountain climate. San Miguel is known for art, theater, music, great food of all varieties, and the most friendly people in Mexico!
