Location and quality. Our Guadiana Neighborhood is Golden. Walk a flat 5 blocks to Centro. And to parks, many restaurants & stores from one of the most desired neighborhoods in central San Miguel. Casa Sirena is in a quiet 7 home group on a non cobblestone street. The walking is easy on our flat paver street, with no steep hills between here and the centro jardine main plaza, which is about 10 minute stroll, good day and night. There are several different & interesting routes to take. Or a 30-50 peso ($2 - $3 US) cab ride which are always going close by. Beautiful Juarez Park is a 5 minute walk. NO noisy BUSES go down our street. There are several good produce markets 2 blocks away in an "authentic" neighborhood or the upscale market at the end of the street plus Organic and artisan Saturday market.
Casa Sirena is behind an always locked gate, secured with a buzzer system to let you know guests have arrived. Our home is at the end of the complex so no one walks by. It is private & quiet. With a complete remodel, it has all modern conveniences but is loaded with Mexican charm. We had most furniture and accessories made by local artisans. Colorful and tasteful art adorn the walls. Objects from all over Mexico are there to enjoy.There are 2 spacious bedrooms with new high quality bedding, very comfy pillows, comforters and custom made writing desks. And both have the gravity defying traditional high boveda (Spanish dome style)ceiling. The King (or can be 2 twin) bedroom has a Juliet balcony and the Queen has a private outdoor plant covered terrace. There is rooftop terrace access and a private hot water outdoor shower, which is a pleasure in this climate. Both bedrooms have heat. The bathrooms are furnished with tile made locally at a historic Dolores Hidalgo, We installed a new water system with pressure pump so the water pressure is great, which is unusual, and the hot water plentiful. The gourmet kitchen has been completely remodeled with custom cabinets from local carpenters, stone counter tops, custom designed tile back splashes and floor tile, and tons of storage space. A beautiful hand made mesquite table and chairs and local artwork make it a pleasure to be in. It provides a full dinner service for 8, bar ware and all the appliances, pots and pans and utensils you could ever need. There is a large pantry furnished with modern Corning Wear, old style Mexican cookware and a new set of aluminum cook wear, and tons of space for your stuff, food or otherwise. There is a full size double door frig, 5 burner stove and oven and large microwave. Even if you only make breakfast, you will have all you need and a great space to enjoy it.
In the living room is a shaft that goes up 3 stories with a skylight ceiling so the space is open and bright. The living room has new custom made comfortable couches and chairs, even for tall people. No tiny furniture here. Included are a gas log fireplace and a large 56 inch flat screen TV and DVD with the most American channels we can get. Netflix is included free. And TV trays for eating while movie watching. Local art and folk-art make it a joy. 3 remote telephones and free long distance are provided. For wireless internet, there are 5 routers so you can get a good signal in any area of the home. You don't have to hover in one spot. This is unique as the walls are so thick most homes only offer internet in one place.
There are 3 gas fireplaces for winter warmth, a gas wall heater, 4 space heaters, and fans for summer. Temperate days and cool nights make the cross breeze usually enough.
There are 3 outdoor spaces for soaking up the amazing weather. On the first floor by the front door entry is a lovely covered patio with festive bench, dinette set seating 4, plants and extra chairs for guests. Great place to have morning coffee or sit if it is raining. On the second level is a private plant filled terrazzo with 4 chairs, a bubbling fountain and an outdoor hot water shower. And there is a private roof top terrace with views of the lovely Paroquia an centro, local Biajo hills and distant Sierra Madre mountain range. Great place for a morning coffee or sunset. Or just sunning and reading your book.
