15% OFF THIS SUMMER FOR WEEKLY RENTALS!

In the heart of beautiful San Miguel awaits a luxury retreat that's perfect for entertaining friends and family, yet is comfortable and warm enough for just for one couple. With beautiful interiors, 11-foot-high ceilings, and loads of light in all the rooms, this new home is one of the most spectacular places you can rent in one of the world's most enchanting towns!

Casa Tres Hijos is an immaculate, 6500-square-foot, light-filled, open home with an American-style great room (kitchen with marble island, dining area and living space in one 50-foot great room), as well as 5 gorgeous bedrooms, each with a private bath (including two master suites with soaking tubs and double vanities on the first floor), a kids' den/TV room, a separate study, and three terraces for lounging and sunning.

To add to your enjoyment Casa Tres Hijos has a large grass yard in an 800-square-meter lot, one of the largest you'll find in centro; a 25-foot, solar-heated pool (heated by gas if you wish) with a deep end; separate 12-person Jacuzzi; outdoor BBQ area; two rooftop decks, on the second and third floors, with gorgeous views to all of San Miguel's churches and hills; and a long covered porch with stone arches facing the pool, perfect for entertaining and relaxing.

The charming interior boasts five large bedrooms--four with king beds and one with twins--all with soft linens, neutral soothing interiors, and blackout drapes for a good night's sleep. Downstairs are two of these king bedrooms, a den, and the wonderful living room/dining room/kitchen. Upstairs are three more light-filled bedrooms (two kings and one with twins), as well as the children's TV/playroom. Other amenities include the solar-heated/gas-heated pool and Jacuzzi, and pressurized, purified water. Drink from every tap!

If you've ever wanted to take a month off, learn Spanish, experience another culture, or just pamper yourself, this is your chance. No cleaning, no laundry, no housework, no gardening--let our helpful staff do it for you. We can even provide a cook if that appeals to you.

The pool is the perfect place to unwind after a day of sightseeing and walking the atmospheric streets. Or sit on the covered porch, dine under the stars, or have a cocktail overlooking the Parroquoia from the second-story patio with its olive trees and herb garden. One of the main benefits of this house is the tranquility and quiet, a real treat when living in Centro. Not to mention that you can walk everywhere from here.

We are located in the upscale La Aldea neighborhood--a quiet gated community of Mexican and ex-pat homeowners. Located off Zacateros and Ancha San Antonio, we are an easy 10-minute walk to the jardin (main square), and even less to the Instituto Allende, the new world-class Rosewood Resort, beautiful Parque Juarez and a host of gourmet wine and cheese stores, organic markets, craft stores, and restaurants (all within about 4 blocks).

This is the perfect spot for your next family vacation. We welcome kids! You will not find another house this big, beautiful, light and well-located in all of San Miguel. Come see for yourself!

About Ann Hillers

We are a family of 5: Sam and Ann and three super boys, ages 13, 15, and 16. We spent six full years in San Miguel as part of the vibrant expat community here, but moved to San Diego in August 2015. Now our house is available to share year round. Sam is an English teacher and Ann organizes international tours and writes travel brochures.

Ann Hillers purchased this house in 2009

Why Ann Hillers chose San Miguel de Allende

We fell in love with San Miguel the first time we arrived here--like everyone! San Miguel is such a magical place and when we are home here, the beauty of the town and the beauty of our experiences here are only magnified by the sweet sanctuary of our new house. It's one of the most peaceful places we know in San Miguel and the place folks wants to come to to relax, rest and play.

What makes this house unique

The sound of the mourning doves at dawn...the donkeys who graze in our corner park when they're finished selling their wood...the proximity to centro, but without the traffic and the noise...the quiet of our little neighborhood and most importantly the fantastic convenience to everything we love to do in San Miguel: walk, go out to eat, visit the local tiendas for produce, meat, and fruit, shop along Ancha San Antonio, enjoy tapas and live music at Cafe Rama, and occasionally, go to the Luna Bar at the Rosewood for the best view in town. All are an easy, easy stroll from our house!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, Ann. We had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. LuzMa was amazing, as were Usha and Cindy (in home spa services). We also found the book recommendations to be very good and found a few treasures on our own.



Take care

PERFECT home in awesome city!

  • 5 of 5

As others have stated, the pics did not do this house justice. It was everything and more we had hoped or could've asked for. My husband and I brought our 3 adult children and their friends and we all had our own private areas. Gorgeous furnishings, artwork, textiles, details, etc. so many vignettes to relax together or alone, different areas where we all played games. Truly, we wanted to stay there all of the time, but we did venture out into the city and it couldn't have been easier. The location was perfect, only a few blocks to shops, restaurants, stores, and just a few blocks up the hill to El Jardin, the town center...easily walkable. Excellent food of different ethnicities were found all around. We also opted to stay home one night and cook in the chef's kitchen. And how could I forget to mention Luzma, the housekeeper! She was there every morning by 9:00, cleaned, cooked breakfast for us one morning, did laundry, just made the house spotless every day, as well as her son keeping the yard and pool clean. I simply cannot say enough things about this gorgeous, private, huge, well-appointed house! We highly recommend and to return, as well! Thank you for sharing your fantastic San Miguel home with us!

Unbelievably Beautiful, Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful, amazingly decorated home was the highlight of our girl's trip to SMA. The house is even better than the pictures, believe it or not. It is centrally located (15 walk to the main square) and convenient to all sorts of shops, restaurants and the Jardin. In a quiet, gated neighborhood. We were in the pool every day and night and the open concept living and kitchen welcomed us every morning. Did I mention all of us wanted to take every piece of art in the place home? This is an authentic home with every detail taken care of. We cannot wait to visit again - as this is our new vacation home away from home. The owner was fantastic, attending to every detail and incredibly responsive on the fly. I cannot recommend this vacation home enough!

A stunningly beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after dark, entering through a beautiful door that led into a safe and lovely property. First sight - the swimming pool lit up, showing off the surrounding open seating and covered porch. Breathtaking. The modern kitchen was one of the many modern elements that were built into a new home that blended in beautifully with the colonial accents. The art in the home is stunning.

The floor plan of the home was well thought out - each bedroom large and inviting - giving personal space to all. The bedding and linens top notch - made for some very comfortable sleeps.

As for the location - it could not be better. Walking to the Jardin a bit uphill - but very doable. Many good restaurants within walking too - and safe taxi's/drivers are easily obtained. Gated community was nice for security and the house set back so noise was at a minimum. It was over Christmas, so of course lots of fireworks and such - part of the wonderful celebrations of that season.

Having said all this - our hearts were stolen by our housekeeper Luzma and her son Jesus. Beautiful, loving people who worked so hard to make us welcome. This was our favourite part of all.

San Miguel de Allende is jewel - culture, shopping, history, fine cuisine, language institution and world class art....... what more could you want! I will be back!

Unexpected Gem

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this beautiful place justice. You have the best of both worlds in this home you get the villa Mexican style home feel with functionality with modern updated affects. Our stay was better then we could of expected. Andrea the coordinator was very helpful in setting up transportation and a chef which made the stay very stress free. The home is inside a gated neighborhood which made us feel extra safe being that we had kiddos with us. The home was an easy 10 minute walk from the centro and parroquia area which was very convenient. We definitely intend on coming back to this home when we return to San Miguel. The style of home and decor with modern flares really stood out. Overall just Beautiful home.

AWESOME STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a GORGEOUS home you have in SMA!! We can’t express enough to you what a wonderful time we had, and staying in ‘Casa Tres Hijos' was definitely a highlight to our vacation!! Luzma was the icing on the cake and all her reviews are spot on! She is super sweet, a wonderful cook, always kept the home tidy and made our stay so relaxing and comfortable. As you know we were nervous about the rental since our family is used to hotels/resorts for our family vacations and this was our 1st home family vacation rental. I know we will never stay anywhere else in San Miguel!! Of course your prompt answers to all my questions and concerns prior to renting and then during our stay gave us a sense of peace.. all your recommendations were awesome and we plan to go back just to finish your lovely list of things to do, where to shop & where to dine!! The location is PERFECT!! so close to EVERYTHING!! and the neighborhood was safe & beautiful.

Our 3 daughters can’t stop talking about their “Dream Home” in SMA!! They loved having so much space to enjoy, the soaking tubs and of course the beautiful yard with very fun & relaxing pool! Every morning I would sit & have my coffee on the top terrace to watch the sun rise & catch a beautiful view not only of the Parroquia but of the hot air balloons setting sail!! I would then come down to the 2nd level wake the girls and we would all sit on the 2nd floor terrace planning our day & reminiscing our adventures of the day before!! Luzma made us delicious, authentic breakfasts the mornings we didn’t head out super early for volunteering and/or day trips. Having picky eaters, I was pleasantly pleased to see every family member going for seconds!! As many of the other reviewers have mentioned, your home is straight out of a magazine and although your photos are beautiful, once you walk in to paradise the photos really don’t do the beauty justice!! Fresh flowers throughout the home and kept up by Luzma were a subtle but impactful touch!! My best friend who was getting married in San Miguel commented that your home was so beautiful she could have had her ceremony or reception there if she didn’t have over 150 guests!!! I can go on and on… Ann, thank you for an AWESOME stay and we will for sure be in your home when we get back to SMA!!

AMAZING. even better than the gorgeous picture!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely perfect. We traveled to SMA for one of our best friend's weddings and the location was central, the place was clean and well-maintained, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We couldn't have found a more perfect place! We would definitely stay here on our next trip to San Miguel de Allende (along with all the other wedding guests that stopped by just to see the gorgeous place!).

Barrio La Aldea is a private community in the Colonia Centro (central district) with ample street parking and no through-traffic located at the western edge of the historic district. It is where Zacateros and Ancha San Antonio meet, opposite the street that the Rosewood Hotel is located on. It's the perfect location for walking to all local attractions, bars, restaurants, organic markets, craft fairs and the Saturday Organic Market. It's biggest advantage is the ease of parking and the quiet! As it's a series of just four streets in a square accessed by an entrance road you do not have traffic moving through the neighborhood. There is also a lovely community garden at the end of the block with cactus, fruit trees, grass and other local plant specimens.
