About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Attractive, completely furnished, two bedroom, two bath house bordering the Centro area of San Miguel. From its location in the San Antonio district it is an easy (5 min.) walk to the Instituto Allende (Art and Language School), and a 10-13 minute walk to the Jardin (center of town). It is a easy, level walk to the Warren-Hardy Language School.

The house is located in a neighborhood containing both Mexican families and foreign residents. It is a safe area and close to a produce and flower market. (I will be happy to provide directions to the closest grocery shopping!) In this casa you will get a taste of everyday Mexican culture, yet be within walking distance of the primary sights and events that San Miguel has to offer.

You will have panoramic 360 degree views of the city and surrounding mountains from the roof terrace and second-floor patio. Living room with cable TV, gas heat, full kitchen, office alcove, telephone, and high speed internet hookup. Once a week maid service provided with rental, more often if you wish to arrange this with the maid. Rentals include utilities, excepting phone beyond basic monthly local service, and any usage beyond the first tank of gas (usually free for all but long-term rentals).

You have seen that our prices are among the lowest on this website. We would rather have happy renters than hold out for a higher price.

Casa De Amistad: Great View, Convenient, Wireless Internet
average rating of 4.85 based on 20 reviews

Cozy multi-level house with 2 nicely decorated bedrooms. Very centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Amistad. The manger Flor was very attentive and accommodated us at late check in time. We parked car at the front door and walked everywhere, not moving until we departed. Quiet neighborhood away from main drag. Clean, nicely decorated home. We would like to go back to this casa again in the not too far off future.

Convenient Urban Location with Views, Multi-spaces & Amenities

  • 4 of 5

It's like having your own vacation property in San Miguel, except you get a bonus manager (Flor) and owner (Tina) who strive to make your visit pleasant and burden free. The value is good and appropriate.

Your pleasant experience starts with speedy and good communication with Tina. We booked well in-advance; Tina kept in-touch, helped with suggestions and delivered as promised. Flor met us at the property, showed us how everything worked and provided her contact details, just in case. The property was fine, we never had cause to contact Flor until we reconfirmed our check-out.

The property is as represented, with the small caveat that the bed in the second bedroom won't sleep two individuals, unless both want to be intimate with the other. To be clear, if one individual intending to sleep in the second bed is much bigger than 5'10" or 150 lbs, or if you have teenage brother and sister, then only one will fit in the bed and the other will be on the couch cushions downstairs.

The view is great as represented, with the caveat that it's not 360 degrees panoramic. The view to the St. Michael Archangel church is not obstructed as of Nov 2017 (and it's better than conveyed on the website photos); but the view is channeled between the rising fourth stories of neighbors. You can't see the whole downtown; but the roof patio is large and fine to enjoy the sunrise or sunset over the St. Michael Archangel church; plus, the view about the town is also good.

When booking and enjoying this property, recall my description that it's just "like having your own vacation property." It's not your best linens, couches, mattresses, appliances, etc. Everything is clean and fresh; house appearance is fine (and in keeping with San Miguel ambiance).

Everything works great, for a vacation. Don't use hot water at bedtime; the hot water heater works great but it's noisy! Expect some toilet smell in the guest bathroom. Don't expect a hotel or the house to be like your main home.

You are in a residential neighborhood: very safe at all times. It also means that it's not quiet. Cobblestone streets amplify road noise and almost all neighbors own a non-stop barking dog. Watch your steps too: don't twist an ankle nor step on a sidewalk pet mess.

The property is not a long distance nor steep walk from central downtown (Jardin), although at the end of a long day you are grateful that it's mostly downhill back to Casa Amistad. For us, it was no more than ten minutes downtown.

Fantastic price for comfortable stay in super cute, well-situated house

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying in Casa Amistad for 4 days and enjoyed it thoroughly. We loved the rooftop terraces. The view to the Parroquia and for sunsets were fantastic. Beds were comfortable; showers were hot; everything was very clean; well-stocked. The owner provides a 5 gallon garrafon of drinking water and there are basic cooking supplies as well (coffee, sugar, oil, spices.)

We spent almost all day out of the house and the location is fantastic. It's a short walk to Centro, and close to a large local market. In the immediate area are a tienda for basics (beer), and several good restaurants right on the same street. The street is quiet at night - no roosters, barking dogs, or honking trucks. (Of course, being Mexico, you never know when there will be fireworks or a party.)

Would easily recommend Casa Amistad without hesitation. Communication with Laurie (the owner) and Flor (the house manager) was quick and easy.

A perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I have just returned from a two week holiday in San Miguel. Her daughter asked us to pick our favorite day and we told her that would be difficult because there was something special about every day. There is so much to see and do in San Miguel and our accommodation was perfectly situated to be able to walk to just about everything we did. The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped with all the comforts of home. We really enjoyed the rooftop terrace where we usually started and ended the day. The kitchen had everything we needed and grocery stores and markets were close by.

A taxi or bus is very affordable if the distance to far to walk. We took a bus to the weekly Tuesday market and a taxi to the Equinox celebration which involved a beautiful concert where everyone sits on the rocks over looking the stage. It was quite spectacular! Another day we signed up for a historical walking tour which was both informative and interesting. There also wonderful restaurants throughout San Miguel.

Thank you to Flor for always being available whenever we had a question and thank you to Tina for providing us with such a pleasant home away from home. Terry and Myrna

Very nice house and would recommend again.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nicely decorated and furnished. It has a total of five floors with a few steps in between each level so you did get your work out going up and down. The two separate balconies were wonderful that overlooked the city and great views. It was longer to walk to the Jardin than we had thought and depending on the way you went the steepness of the streets varied. We choose to go a bit farther in order to avoid the very steep street. The distance from the jardin probably saved us from hearing the noise from the church bells and the people at night. We had been advised by two people to never walk at night especially since there were 4 of us ladies but to take a cab which only cost us $50 for the four of us. We fully used the kitchen and really enjoyed resting in the middle of the day. We definitely walked allot and saw allot of the city on foot as had been recommended. There were lots of restaurants, bars and a few small stores near by so it was conveniently located. I would recommend this to others but advise that you need to be in good physical shape because there are allot of steps in the house as well as in the streets and bring your walking shoes.
