Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

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.

You will be pampered by a full time, (five and a half days a week )

housekeeper who also cooks. The kitchen is equipped with all modern appliances including a Cuisinart food processor and KitchenAid mixer, and water purification system. She will prepare your breakfast and lunch upon request. Of if you prefer to indulge in the joy of experimenting with your own preparations, you have a brightly lit, inviting kitchen to make whatever you choose after a visit to the nearby fruit and vegetable market. The kitchen is done in fanciful Mexican tiles and comes complete with all your dishes, flatware, glassware, pots and pans. Everything you need for preparing and enjoying your meals. Of course if you prefer to dine out, you are walking distance from San Miguel's host of restaurants that include everything from four-star elegance to corner walk-up taquerias.

In fact this house is within walking distance of all of San Miguel's major attractions as it is on Calle Barranca. Two blocks from the Plaza Principal or Jardin, you may walk at your leisure among museums, galleries, colonial churches, historic landmarks, and of course the shops where you will find everything from antiquedades to hand-painted pottery and dishes to jewelry, clothes and souvenirs.

The master bedroom has a queen bed and seating alcove surrounded by French doors facing the central patio. You'll stay warm and cozy in the winter with the fireplace lit. There is ample closet and storage space. The adjoining bathroom is light filled by a cupola over the bathtub/shower. There are typical San Miguel architectural features like wall conchas and beamed ceilings. It the warm months you'll enjoy the ceiling fan over the bed. In this bedroom there is a wireless Internet connection.

The guest bedroom comes with two twin beds both hung with romantic mosquito netting. The room also has an adjoining bath, a fireplace and plenty of closet space.

The main indoor sala/living room is a gracious space fully equipped with a wet bar, a fireplace and unique art and accessories. As a fellow traveler, you will appreciate the owner's flare for incorporating collectibles gathered from places around the world such as the Morroccan light fixtures, French bedspreads and of course many unique Mexican paintings and decorations.

You will not be missing anything as you are provided with internet, cable t.v., telephone and washer/dryer which the maid will use to do the laundry.

Come and snuggle into this charming and cozy nest in the center of San Miguel.

Feathered nest

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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!

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..

Beautiful, convenient, comfortable and accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I enjoyed a very comfortable stay. Communication was excellent with Sally, Veronica and Ponciano making sure anything we needed was taken care of.

The location is excellent. The home is just far enough from Jardín Allende to avoid most noise, but a very short walk away.

We've already discussed making another trip to SMA next year. If you have a small group this is perfect.
