Balcones House Rental Photos and Description

Strikingly beautiful contemporary adobe colonial home overlooking San Miguel de Allende, three bedrooms, three and a half baths, swimming pool and a large, beautiful back yard. The home is in a very peaceful, quiet section of San Miguel (no traffic noise, no bar/restaurant noise) and is 20 - 25 minute walk down the hill to the the center of town. Master bedroom has a king sized bed, an extraordinary view over the botanical gardens, a master bathroom and walk-in closet. Two guest rooms in the south wing of the house each have queen sized beds and their own bathrooms. The Blue Guest Room additionally has a niche with a twin sized bed. A large living room, a library (with wide screen, cable television) and a bridge over the flooded patio which links the guest wing with the rest of the house, a large, modern kitchen and a lovely formal dining room. There is internet access in every room (hard wire and wi fi). There is a full time gardener and a full time housekeeper who attend the house Monday through Friday who are able to provide some assistance with cooking and shopping. Details can be arranged. The owners, he is a painter, she a ceramicist, maintain a home in San Diego and during the times they are in California they have made their San Miguel home available for rent.

Un pueblo hermoso, una casa hermosa

  • 5 of 5

Pasamos una semana deliciosa, aunque no era la primera vez que visitábamos San Miguel, si fue la primera vez que nos hospedamos en una casa y la experiencia fue muy satisfactoria, las fotografías son incapaces de describir el ambiente de cada una de las habitaciones y en general de la casa, es una casa realmente hermosa con detalles en cada rincón de ella, el jardín es increíble, particularmente disfrutamos mucho la chimenea en la terraza que da al jardín.

El personal de servicio es amable y servicial, y mantienen la casa y el jardín en perfecto estado.

San Miguel es un pueblo colonial, sus iglesias, calles y arquitectura son encantadores. Para aquel que quiera pasar un tiempo de relajamiento, de buena comida, gente amable, y estar rodeado de arte, San Miguel y esta casa son la combinación perfecta.

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on this website showcase a beautiful home, BUT, once you arrive, you instantly realize that the property is actually ten times as gorgeous in person, and that it's impossible for a camera to capture it's grandeur! This place belongs in the pages of Architectural Digest. Richard (owner) was prompt to answer, very accommodating, reliable, and overall delightful.

The property is quite large, which helps give you privacy or a quiet space when you need it, even if traveling with a group. We had 3 adults and one baby in our group, and the house felt big for us! My husband, our baby and I occupied the master bedroom (upstairs), and our guest stayed in one of the bedrooms downstairs (this was an ideal arrangement because there's a lot of distance between the master and guest bedrooms and we didn't have to worry about our baby's crying waking other people up in the middle of the night). The floors are all stone (with some rugs here and there); they can be hard on bare feet, so bring sleepers or flip flops.

The backyard is breathtaking and we enjoyed taking a stroll, relaxing and admiring the impeccable landscaping. Because the house is located on the outskirts of town, all you can hear are the fountains and the birds. The botanical gardens next door offer lots of privacy and beautiful views. Early in the morning you can see the air balloons fly over the town. The rooftop terrace was perfect to admire the sunset while sipping wine. If privacy is what you want, this place has it. If you like being in the middle of the action, then keep in mind that you’ll have to take a taxi to get to it. We took many walks into town from the house, but the hills are steep and the streets are cobblestoned, so it may not be a feasible walk for everyone.

The only hiccup on our trip was having a pool that was too cold to use. We had very nice weather (high 70s, low 80s) and there were times when it felt hot enough to crave a dip in the pool, but the water was ice cold! It can be heated, but the gas to heat the pool and jacuzzi is an extra cost and it is extremely high. But, assuming usage of the pool is possible during your visit, that makes this house an even greater place to stay in and take a break from sight-seeing.

Mayra and Rolando were invaluable to our stay. She prepared delicious meals for us and he helped us resolved any technical issues around the house or answer any questions. Overall an unforgettable experience, we hope to be back soon. Book it now!
