About the property

6 BR home with swimming pool 2 blocks from Parque Juarez

Feel pampered in this large, centro historico, 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. All bathrooms are supplied with a hair dryer and locally handcrafted bath products from Ablu (shampoo, conditioner, bath soap and hand soap).

With five fireplaces and multiple terraces, there are many cozy places to sit, relax and enjoy the sites and sounds of San Miguel. The bedrooms are spread out all over the property to offer privacy.

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

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

Great family time

  • 5 of 5

We had a Wonderful time during our stay, the property is perfect for our group of 12. Tina was Great, and an awesome cook. We would not hesitate staying again, everything was in walking distance and San Miguel is truly a colonial masterpiece.

This house made our vacation

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the pictures don't do the house justice. It's absolutely stunning. It's huge, and each bedroom has their own bathroom. The bedrooms are pretty separated so there's tons of privacy (and not loud), but the communal area (pool, outdoor couches, and lawn) have plenty of space for everyone to hang comfortably and be together. Tina, the housekeeper, was so sweet and made daily fresh salsa and guacamole that was to die for. Rachel, the host, was incredibly responsive throughout the weekend whenever I had a question. She was even nice enough to make us dinner reservations at a restaurant we couldn't get a hold of from the states. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend staying at this house - our weekend would not have been the same without it.

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.

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.
