Convenient location, comfortable apartment w/sunny courtyard

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our one month stay in Leticia's casita. Great location, mostly quiet; however, firecrackers and late parties on the weekends are a way of life in Mexico, so be prepared. Nice 10-15 min walk to Jardin, less to the lovely Juarez park. Right in the neighborhood are Victoria Restaurant just around the corner, Sano organic market and cafes just 5 minutes away, Italian restaurant Francesco's near a very good Lebanese restaurant, Buon Forno and Zenteno Cafes are both excellent. The list goes on with all that is happening all the time with music, art and theater and lively street life.

Stayed for a month while exploring San Miguel!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a month while exploring San Miguel de Allende. The property is located in a very safe area, within walking distance to parks, restaurants, and centro. We never used our car unless going to grocery stores or out of town. We came during May, hottest month of the year, and the casita would heat up during the day, but eventually cool off at night. I doubt this would be much of a problem any other time of the year. The casita is well furnished, although mattress in front bedroom has seen better days! This casita is budget friendly for a month's rental, and the location is awesome. The best things about it are location, and the wonderful little courtyard (with a lemon tree for shade) to enjoy your morning coffee. Leticia, the owner, was responsive to emails. Maid and gardener were friendly and helpful.

Quiet neighborhood and lovely patio

  • 4 of 5

My wife enjoyed our week stay in Tres Casitas. Since it was very cool period in January, I especially liked basking in the sun during the day in the delightful little patio with fruit-laden lemon tree. In the late afternoon, as the day cooled, I loved to then ascend to the chairs on the rooftop, and savor the warmth from the sun-soaked wall and survey the neighborhood scene with flowers spilling over from the rooftop patios.

The owner, Leticia, was quick and helpful in responses to queries and the housekeeper was affable and punctual in meeting us at our arrival and departure.

Best location in a charming casita

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a month in the two bedroom casita. A great location, quiet, safe with a wonderful stroll to the jardin. The facilities were charming, soulful. I was very comfortable ... the bed was great. Josefina the housekeeper was friendly and dependable. Good restaurants and all necessities are a block away. There's organic food supplies right around corner! Heaven on earth.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

I just returned home after a lovely two month stay at Leticia's casita. The location is ideal--in a lovely, safe neighborhood--a short walk to the best coffee shop in San Miguel, Cafe Zenteno (worth a trip every morning even though I enjoyed a cup of french press at home earlier each day). It is also a short walk to the Jardin and Parrocchia. I was taking Spanish classes each morning at Escuela Josefina's and it was right around the corner. Saturday's organic market and the weekend Hecho in Mexico bazaar is a block away. You couldn't ask for a better location. While taxis are inexpensive, I rarely used one as most everything was within walking distance.

Leticia was great, readily accommodating a last minute request to add an extra day up front to my reservation. Josefina met us at the door and responded promptly to any concerns or questions. Between she and Angelica everything was taken care of.

The two-bedroom casita was nicely laid out with bright and cheerful colors. The photos accurately this lovely casita that became my home away from home for two months. I believe that Leticia is planning a few upgrades which will make it ideal. I hope to return!

I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. And if anyone wants to learn Spanish or brush up on their Spanish I would absolutely recommend checking out Escuela Josefina (Centro Mexicano de Lengua y Cultura). I spent two hours there each morning before heading out to explore.
