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.

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.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Sally's home is so much nicer than the photos and descriptions! It's perfectly located close to the Jardin, restaurants (esp my favorite La Manantiel) and shops yet still quiet and residential. The home is very comfortable and everything to make your stay homey and luxurious has been provided. Veronica and Ponce were lovely and helpful. Veronica prepared a delicious welcome dinner and breakfast on occasion in addition to doing laundry everyday. The beds were really comfortable which is a huge plus especially if you're staying for a few weeks. The third floor terrace was where I spent the most time. The seating was so inviting I found myself taking a daily siesta there after a long day exploring SMA. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and am already planning my next visit. Thank you Sally for being such a thoughtful hostess!

A beautiful home in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We three cousins had a wonderful stay in San Miguel. The apartment was even better than we anticipated. It was so beautiful with flowers and foliage at every turn. Veronica was a jewel and prepared several delicious meals. The atmosphere of the place was so relaxing it was difficult to leave the premises. But, it was just a short walk to centro and the jardin. We ate out for several meals but the best food we had was at 22 Barranca. We definitely hope to return and would not even consider a different location for our stay.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days at this beautiful casita. Adriana your housekeeper made us feel like we were right at home, she went above and beyond to make our stay a comfortable one. I don't know if she will stay with you for the long run, but I sure hope so. Because if your casita is available for our next trip we hope to stay there.

Once again, everything was just perfect! !

Thanks

Oasis in the City

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was lovely! A beautifully laid out open air floor plan with plants and charming decor. We were pleasantly surprised by the quaintness of this wonderful place. Sally was a wonderful host. She checked in with us several times to make sure we were comfortable and Veronica was very helpful as well. I recommend this charming and comfortable home to all!
