Overview

About the property

6 BR home with swimming pool 2 blocks from Parque Juarez

Feel pampered in this large, centro, comfortable colonial home overlooking San Miguel de Allende. This house is beautifully furnished and offers all the comfort you could expect from a vacation home. The house is located two blocks from Parque Juarez and four blocks from the Jardin (the main square in town), and it is located on one of the most famous streets in San Miguel. At the bottom of the street, you can still appreciate women coming from the surrounding areas to do their laundry.

The house is very spacious, and each en suite bedroom has its own balcony overlooking beautiful San Miguel. Each bedroom has a closet with a safe and a full bathroom. The bedrooms are spread out all over the property to offer privacy.

For your own convenience, there is an additional bathroom next to the swimming pool.

With five fireplaces and multiple terraces, there are many cozy places to sit, relax and enjoy the sites and sounds of San Miguel.

Enjoy the well-equipped, stylish new chef's kitchen that includes a commercial oven/stove and pizza oven.

The maid is also an excellent cook--you will be delighted by her Mexican cooking!

Beautiful home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning and great for group travel. The location is fantastic - an easy walk to main parts of town but also on a quiet street. Rachel was a very responsive and accommodating host, and Tina was very helpful when we first arrived.

JAGO

  • 5 of 5

Una muy agradable sorpresa fue encontrar la casa mejor que lo que había visto y leído de previas criticas. Simplemente extraordinaria ubicación.belleza,cuidado de toda la propiedad,limpieza,mobiliario (pareciera que fuera la casa en que vive uno, con adornos y todo lo necesario en un hogar). Realmente se siente uno "en casa".

Y por supuesto no puedo dejar de hablar de Tina. Nos hizo sentir que no nos faltaba nada, muy atenta y comedida desde la preparación de desayuno hasta ya entrada la tarde ( la queríamos traer con nosotros pero no se dejo, me imagino que Rachel la tiene muy consentida y no la culpo).

No trate con Rachel, pero por lo que mi hijo me comento, hizo todo lo posible para que nuestro grupo que era grande (16), estuviera cómodo y así fue, realmente fue una semana extraordinaria "en casa".

Gracias Rachel, Tina y Mari.

Amazing Family Experience!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Rachel, was very attentive. We stayed in the house with the entire family, 13 of us, and she made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this property for a large group or family. The rooms were comfortable, the pool was great for the kids, the kitchen was great for cooking with the kids.

This is a lovely gracious home.

  • 5 of 5

Rachel's home in SMA provided us with everything we could have wanted for our vacation (two older adults, three younger adults). There are five bedrooms of equal size all with private baths and patios looking out over the city. We gathered in the evenings in the living room around the fireplace. This combination of privacy and wonderful communal spaces was perfect for us. The accommodations were all first class: luxurious linens, comfortable beds and furniture, super kitchen and cool art. The view of San Miguel is expansive, the walk into town easy.

The highlight was Tina, housekeeper and chef extraordinaire. Waking to the smell of her cooking breakfast remains one of my favorite memories of our trip. Tina shopped for groceries for us and keep us exceedingly well fed.

Maybe not the perfect place for small children but otherwise I cannot recommend this home more highly.

Unforgettable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Given all the enthusiastic reviews of Centro Historico, this will be somewhat like gilding the lily. But I want to add my family's perspective on this exceptional property. My husband and I - both active and in our 70's - wanted to gather our 3 daughters and their families to celebrate a 75th birthday over the week of Thanksgiving. There were 12 of us, and we needed a place that offered both togetherness and privacy. Two families had young children, the 3rd not yet. I'll organize our experience into 3 parts: the house; the owner, Rachel; and the housekeeper, Tina.

The House - Beyond being even more beautiful than the photos could convey, the house provided 4 separate bedroom areas, 2 of which consisted of 2 rooms. These are the separate apartment, just a few steps from the main house, and the upstairs of the house. They were perfect for the families with children. There are two other large, single bedrooms. The gathering rooms - kitchen, dining room, and living room are large, comfortably furnished, welcoming, and the walls are adorned with beautiful art. There are also endless outdoor areas on each level and a lovely pool area with grass, a fountain, and a shower.

The Owner - As many others have said, Rachel was a tremendous help in making our visit unforgettable. During the months before we came, I had countless email exchanges about all aspects of our stay, especially planning for the children, with cribs, gates, high chairs, etc. She replied quickly, connected us with the equipment rental people, and patiently answered many questions and concerns. It would have been a completely different experience without Rachel's kindness and assistance.

The Housekeeper - Tina was an important part of our daily life. She was there from 10-3 each weekday, tidying up, doing the grocery shopping and being a cheerful presence, especially with the children. She has limited English and several of us have limited Spanish, and with her good humor we communicated very well. We asked her to cook 5 of our 7 nights, including Thanksgiving, and with a little guidance about our preferences, she did a marvelous job. We explained we didn't want a traditional American Thanksgiving meal, but a festive Mexican one, and she created an abundant feast that all of us will long remember.

I would add that the many levels of the house mean that monitoring young children takes more effort because of stairs, doors to the outside, etc. For us it was well worth it.

Amazing House! Your Search Ends Here!

  • 5 of 5

When you look at houses on VRBO or hotel pictures, its rare that the real thing matches up let alone exceeds expectations. This one does that and then some. Everything about this house is amazing. From the outrageous views of San Miguel down and the far mountains (which you can see for basically every balcony since every bedroom and room has its own walk out with seating) to the pool to relax by, and the whole time you are no more then a 10 minute walk from anywhere you would like to be around the town square. We were a group of 9 in town for a wedding and as the person who took care of booking the house, I had a lot of apprehension about how the place would be. Well it was a hit to say the least. Rachel, the owner you will deal with for booking your stay and payments, was available at all times via phone and email to discuss questions about the property and will put your mind at ease about the whole process. It also helps that she has a spectacular home! Last but certainly not least, possibly the best thing about the whole house/experience, was Tina the housekeeper. For the price of ingredients, she will cook breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it is amazing. We had breakfast every morning and it was delicious. Bacon, eggs, fruit, you name it, she took care of it. She turned over every room, every day. Always had a smile on her face and helped with booking cabs and transportation, etc. She was the best! Frankly, everything about this house was the best!
