Beautiful, Well Apounted With Friendly Staff

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 10 nights at Casa Estana. Liz was very helpful during the reservation process. The house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Veronica, our housekeeper, was very friendly and helpful during our stay. We looked forward to her margaritas and guacamole each day. Her daily visits were unobtrusive and the house was spotlessly clean. We enjoyed morning and evening views from the wonderful rooftop terraces. Since we were there during a holiday weekend, there was a significant amount of street noise in the casita bedroom which might be a problem for some guests. However, this noise was not noticeable in the living areas and two bedrooms in the main house. The house is conveniently located within a short walking distance to the Jardin and many great restaurants and shops. We will definitely return to Casa Estana!

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to describe how beautiful this house is. It is in an amazing location, close to the Jardin and an easy walk to almost everything in town. Veronica, who helps take care of the house, is kind and helpful and an amazing host. Perfectly appointed and the views from the top decks are stunning. We would stay here again in an instant. Thank you for hosting us at your beautiful home.

A beautiful estate, in a great location with wonderful staff.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend the month of August at Casa Estana and were very pleased with the experience. The premises are extremely attractive, the location is great, especially for first time visitors, and the service expemplary. I particularly appreciated the almost immediate landlord response we received when I had questions during our stay. Now having had the experience of four weeks at CE I can safely say that it is a super choice for anyone visiting SMA; a "must have" choice for first time visitors (you are within walking distance of almost everything you will want to visit). And as others have done, I must specifically mention Veronica, who made each day special. We have traveled extensively for the last couple of decades and my wife and I put CE on our AAA list of accommodations. Muchas Gracias Liz D.

We didn't want to leave.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Estana is absolutely gorgeous. Every detail has so obviously been painstakingly considered. I have no idea if Liz is an interior designer or employed the assistance of one, but the way the home has been decorated is a fabulous combination of eclectic and composition. Veronica was as kind and helpful as she was discreet and quiet. She was a pleasure to have around and never felt intrusive. She always did her best to help us with any of our questions. We've been to San Miguel de Allende four times now and this is the first time we opted for a rental rather than a hotel. To be honest, I wish we had stayed longer so that we could have enjoyed all of the amenities available. As it was, we did spend time enjoying the roof terraces very much and the view is beautiful. Aside from the fact that Casa Estana is a home you wish were your own but that you feel grateful for the time you have to pretend it is, it couldn't be more conveniently located.

Liz was prompt, helpful and pleasant to deal with, which gave us a lot of confidence in booking and we appreciate her patience with us as we had to do things a little bit differently as we were not visiting from the USA.

Thank you, Liz, for sharing your home with us. I hope we'll be able to stay again - and, next time, even longer.

A Dream Getaway in SMA

  • 5 of 5

Casa Estana was a truly magical place to call home for the week we spent in the ever-enchanting San Miguel de Allende, and one we were immensely sad to leave. This stunning home, situated only a few blocks off the Jardín Principal, is ideally located within easy walking distance of the innumerable and exquisite restaurants, shaded rooftop bars, winding cobbled streets and hidden galleries of the city’s historic Centro. Liz has clearly taken great care in designing a serene and stylish getaway, and Casa Estana is every bit as beautiful in person as it is in pictures. The furnishings are elegant but casual, the beds and linens clean and comfortable, and the incredible, wraparound vistas from the house’s multitude of shaded roof terraces are completely unforgettable; nothing beats coffee at sunrise, watching hot air balloons drift over the city, or watching its lights twinkle to life in the evenings over a pitcher of margaritas from Casa Estana’s roof deck—it was the picture perfect vantage from which to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of this charming colonial city. In spite of its central location on a fairly busy street, we were never bothered by noise—other than the occasional dog barking, the high-pitched whistle of the man who sharpens knives or the all-too-common, all-night “cohetes” (fireworks) announcing whatever fiesta happens to be taking place that week, but such is life in San Miguel. In spite of its old-fashioned charm, the house is well-equipped with modern conveniences—including reliable wifi in both the main house and casita (perfect for sending photos to inevitably envious friends!) and plenty of fans that helped us sleep through the sweltering midsummer nights. Vero welcomed us with margaritas and maintains the home to an impressive standard. It’s hard to imagine a visit more carefree, or a home more tranquil and charming than Casa Estana; it was a vacation we won’t soon forget.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in VRBO's for many years in a variety of locations and owned/managed one in the mountains of Colorado. Casa Estana is by far the most beautiful and well managed properties that we have ever stayed in. Liz has superb attention to detail and has a staff who reflects her desire to make your vacation special. The house is as lovely in person as in the photos and Veronica is kind, accomodating and makes the best margaritas!! San Miguel is a lovely and interesting city with friendly inhabitants who gladly share conversation and info about their city. We would welcome the opportunity to return to SMA and Casa Estana.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just want to let you know that we enjoyed the time last week in your wonderful house in San Miguel de Allende very much! It is just a perfect place, your house is amazing! We do rent houses from time to time, but a such nicely and perfectly designed and furnished house for rent we haven´t seen at all. Each piece of furniture is beautiful, well selected and lovely combined with all the other wonderful details, such as pictures, lusters, decorations and so on. The two terraces and the atrium are stunning. My father, a 81 year old artist, enjoyed the view from the terraces and painted every day the town and landscape of San Miguel de Allende.

Israel and Veronica attended us very well. José is a dedicated person and spent a lot of time with your plants. Veronica is a nice person and we spoke about her son Jorge who will go to Germany as graduated engineer for a while.

Thank you very much for renting your wonderful Casa Estana to us.
