Beautiful house, but up a steep hill

  • 3 of 5

Advertised as a 10 minute walk to town. This is true, as long as you are in good shape (which we are) and have exercise shoes (which we didn’t) to scale the very steep hill. Also, given the location, you should supply coffee and shampoo in the home for your guests. It isn’t easy to pop out to obtain these things.

Stunning home

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending Christmas in Melissa's home. It's beautifully decorated in mix of traditional decor and modern convenience, with comfortable furnishing both inside and out, and an amazing, eclectic art collection. There were even some Christmas decorations. We felt at home in no time. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom, lots of books, and all the beds are comfy. The kitchen has anything you could need, including a cook if you like. (Viri, the housekeeper, prepared a few wonderful meals for us for a very reasonable fee and always left us plenty of leftovers. Be sure to have her cook at least one meal for you.)

We are a group of seniors and some of us managed the walk into town fine, but we all took taxis back up the hill. Inexpensive and easy. As others have mentioned, the views are fantastic. Most mornings we enjoyed watching hot air balloons and at night there were lots of holiday fireworks. The church bells on Christmas were wonderful.

The attention to detail really made it a pleasant place to stay. We look for homes that feel like a destination in themselves, so that we don't feel like we are missing out on the local experience if we choose to stay in for an afternoon. This home fit the bill perfectly.

Great time in San Miguel de Allende

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the house and in San Miguel de Allende.

The house is gorgeous and the view is wonderful. We were greeted at the front door just as we rolled in and everything was all set to go.

The house is a bit of a walk from town, which is kind of nice because it is very quiet.

Everything was in great order and we enjoyed the city very much.

Would come back again and stay at the house too!

Paradise at the top of the world

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in this home and we will choose this place again if we return to SMA. The views are spectacular, the location is perfect, and the hostess and staff are superb. The neighborhood is very quiet also. You can't go wrong here.

A home with a View of San Miguel

  • 4 of 5

Villa Linda is a gorgeous property with spectacular views of San Miguel in the toni neighbourhood of Los Balcones. The kitchen is well stocked, the linens are lovely, and there is room for a large party given that the dining and living room are joined. The house is filled with period pieces and artwork from all over the world. This home is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. There are stairs which cannot be avoided, and three of the four bedrooms have steps either up or down to get to them. The two twin bedrooms are reached by the outdoors. The telephone and wifi are not reliable and of very poor quality. The location, while spectacular is at the top of a mountain. It is necessary to walk up and down the equivalent of a ski hill on rough cobblestoned narrow streets to get to the city centre. Taxis, while inexpensive ($30-50 pesos) add up quickly and should be factored into your budget, especially if you are considering a long stay. One advantage to being away from the city core is that it is delightfully quiet on nights where there are no fireworks, There is no bus service in Los Balcones. Several Mom & Pop convenience stores are a ten minute walk down the hill and stock just about everything you will need. The proprietor responded immediately to all of our requests and resolved issues.
