About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
You will be in the perfect place to see all the parades that will go right by the home. There will be parades for religious celebrations, important dates and even parades celebrating specific neighborhoods!.....all with the traditional Mexican pomp and flair. Then there are the firework displays! Absolutely spectacular and you'll have one of the best seats in town to enjoy them. It's hard to go very long in Mexico without something being celebrated. It is a delightful aspect of the culture and you'll be able to see it all from your own perch.
This is my own home when I'm in San Miguel. I am a decorator and have put my heart into decorating this home. It is filled with lots of Mexican art and decor, some of which I created. It is a truly very special place to be. I absolutely love my time here. I run to the window or terrace countless times just to see what parade with marching band is going by now! It leaves no question that I am in the real and authentic Mexico
Talking about location, it is wonderful being so close to the jardin/town square. It's just an 8 minute downhill walk. The location is super convenient; taxis go right by the house every few minutes so it's very easy to go anywhere you want to go. Then there's the bus that stops right across the street. Take it up the hill to the shopping center with a fabulous supermarket and cineplexes showing the latest movies.

A Comment from one of our guests:
“This house was a very comfortable place to stay. My family and I were there for 1 month and were very glad for the conveniences like purified water, a dishwasher, and washing machines in the house. The house is very new and modern with plenty of space for the 4 of us. After visiting some other homes in the area I felt even more pleased with our choice of rentals. From the balcony we had an amazing view that we were able to share with friends for drinks and an evening meal. We were able to sit in our chairs and see most of the downtown area while the sun set behind them. This balcony is also right off the master bedroom, which made for 31 glorious mornings where I woke up and pulled the curtains back to be welcomed by the view of beautiful San Miguel. The walk to the Jardin is short and we rarely used the taxis to get anywhere in town unless we were shopping and just didn’t want to carry things. There is a small hill getting to the house from the Jardin but it’s short and didn’t really cause us any problems. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone heading to San Miguel. For us, the modern conveniences made our stay much more pleasant. And the view was truly beautiful.”

Year Purchased: 2008
About: I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career at 24, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with architects and interior designers and watching as the more artistic elements of construction fell into place. After 13 years in real estate, I built two homes, vacation rentals on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked during that process of transforming the cabin into a unique work of art; I knew I had found my purpose in life. Through the next several years, I transformed some 30 rather decrepit homes into fresh, beautiful residences, working tirelessly at the rate of two or three a year. Then I decided to turn my creative attention to designing and constructing very special vacation accommodations. I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there. The most exciting phase of building a new place is when everything gets pulled together. I love the details, making sure that one thing plays with another in perfect harmony. During the process, I'm absolutely consumed. Each project takes every ounce of my imaginative life -- and I love it. I enjoy being able to see the possibilities in a wreck of a dwelling. When I first set eyes on a place in need of a make-over, I see what it could be. I can envision how the finished place will look...and that vision guides me. I work an average of six to eight months on each project, directing a local architect and construction team, supervising every step along the way to make certain my vision is embodied in bricks and mortar, paint and plaster. Be my guest at one of four different and individually unique accommodations in San Miguel de Allende.
Why Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
San Miguel is a beautiful old colonial town. The importance of the arts scene is very alluring. I chose this particular house because it's in centro and just a short downhill walk to the Jardin (main town square) and also for it's panoramic view that's seen from two floors.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I loved watching all the pageantry and parades that passed right in front of the house. The vantage point for watching firework displays was the best in town. It's like I had gotten the best view seat money could buy.
