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.

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!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The only negative of our stay is that it didn't last long enough! While the photos of this casita capture its beauty, they can't adequately convey the charm and thoughtful attention to detail Sally has created. Ponce's warm welcome, the awaiting guacamole and wine, and sweet Veronica quickly assured us that we picked the perfect spot. Just a few blocks from the bustle of the Jardin and Centro's restaurants and shops, it remains an oasis of tranquility, especially on the rooftop terrace. A quick walk to Cumpanio for pastries, to be enjoyed in the lush courtyard, became our morning routine. The Mercado is in easy walking distance, and a wonderful place to experience the bounty of produce that Veronica puts to such satisfying use. Sally has thought of every comfort and convenience with great style, and livability. We will be back, again and again, to this perfect little jewel.

An Incredible Home in an Incredible City

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing more that we could have asked for. The home is located part way up the hill from the Jardin and Parroquia, making for a quick walk to the center, while also being in a quiet location.

The photos are accurate but are no substitute for being there in person.

The home is comfortable as well as being creatively decorated and furnished. We were delighted and impressed with every aspect of the home. We had our morning meals in the courtyard surrounded by greenery and birds, then spent the afternoons and evenings on the rooftop terrace.

Sally was great to work with- quick with information if we had questions.

Ponce met us upon our arrival and explained everything to us.

And Veronica...... She was awesome! Despite us with limited Spanish-language skills, we were able to communicate. She made us breakfast each morning before heading out to explore SMA.

Don't get me started on the city. Between the architecture, history, festivities, religious processions, weddings, and friendly citizens, it's a place that must be experienced.

Charming, private sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our dear friend truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, well-appointed home. From the moment we stepped into the beautiful courtyard, we knew it was the perfect spot. The bedrooms were private and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed and we enjoyed all of the outdoor living spaces. There were cooing doves and darting hummingbirds - enchanting! Sally was attentive and having Veronica there to tidy up was a huge bonus. (I have a suggestion for a new name; Casita de los Pajaros.)

  • 5 of 5

The patios are so beautiful, landscaping is gorgeous and lots of hummingbirds. Furnished with beautiful Mexican things in very good taste. Good beds, we slept very well. Kitchen has everything but with all the great restaurants we didn't cook much! We will return.
