Your perfect getaway to San Miguel de Allende takes place here in this airy, bright, happy house. Enter through a series of arches into a romantic, palm lined, trellised arbor that leads you from the front door to an open air patio surrounded by mature bougainvilleas. Their bright happy colors beckon you to enjoy the outdoor area amid other lush, green plants. You'll want to sip your morning coffee at the tiled table in this patio or you may prefer the rooftop covered terrace. Here you have a broad view of the town's church steeples and colorful buildings as well as the sprawling countryside to the north of town. The open terrace is perfect for lounging and sunbathing, or during the winter months under the tiled roof you can curl up comfortably with you book or enjoy intimate conversation around the fireplace.

Great location, beautiful house, lovely staff and owner
The family stayed here for a month in April 2018 and had a great time at the house. It was pretty hot in the afternoons in town but the lovely garden made the house a cool oasis every time we returned home from our daily outing. The housekeeper, Veronica, kept the house spic and span 6 days a week and cooked us some meals (additional cost for food). Sally, the owner, was just a phone call away if we ever had a question or needed help navigating the city (restaurant recommendations, car service, etc.). If we got home before sunset, we all relaxed on the rooftop patio and enjoyed all the hummingbirds. Very idyllic!! We had a wonderful stay at the house and would highly recommend.
Our visit was over the Christmas holiday and were three adults. Once you enter, you are in a magical world of your own. Sally has attended to every detail with charming and delightful interior finishes. I loved the morning ritual of opening the wooden shutters, curling up on the sofa with a soft blanket and welcoming the day. The beds were cozy and warm, bathrooms were accommodating with space, but still unique and the rooftop patio was a favorite of my daughters. The location is ideal. Internet worked very well. Couldn't ask for more.
Beautiful, close to all sights, accommodating in every way.
I highly recommend this beautiful casa in the heart of San Miguel de Allende. We stayed here with two small children and were quite comfortable. Sally checked in on us often and helped with tourist arrangements. Because we arrived late at night they stocked the house with fruit and snacks to make our transition from a long travel day easy. Veronica is so sweet and so helpful. I wish I could take her home with me!
We will be staying here again if we find ourselves back in SMDA!
Conveniently located and beautifully decorated
Sally is a wonderful host. She checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our stay. Veronica made delicious meals. We completely enjoyed our stay
Beautiful house and great location
My family really enjoyed our stay at this charming house near the center of San Miguel. The rooftop lounging area is especially nice.
Photos do not do this house justice. Beyond magical at every area of house.
From the moment we walked in to the courtyard-- we were overwhelmed by it's charm. Oh and the guacamole and chilled wine wine awaiting us was a PLUS..
There is a newly restored pyramid from 1000 AD just 25 minutes out of town, fascinating
