About Herb Miller

We now make SMA our full time home after years of visiting from Western US homes. We love the near perfect weather, good golfing, great restaurants, and the diverse and interesting culture of this wonderful place.

Herb Miller purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Herb Miller chose Zona Centro

We searched for the best combination of location, privacy, security, and modern conveniences before purchasing this home, and the Casita has all those qualities and its own special charm as well. It is a short, flat walk to the Jardin, we're two blocks from the lovely Parque Juarez, and the action on the Ancha is close by. We lived in the Casita while our home was being remodeled and know that it is a perfect place for your stay in SMA.

Elegant casita ideal for two

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this casita . The pictures are accurate . The kitchen is great to cook in and the bed is very comfortable. Water pressure is great and lots of hot water. The sitting area is elegant. TV service is very good and lots of DVD movies to choose from There is a small desk to do computer work as necessary separate from the dining table in the kitchen.

The location is in a very elegant, upscale neighbourhood that is quiet and peaceful with little traffic. It is about a 7 min. walk to the nearest nice restaurant and the same distance to the large Benito Juarez park which is very beautiful. It is about a 20 min. walk to the center of town near the main church and Jardin. Fascinating shops along the way.

The entrance is very private and the owners , who were there at the time were very respectful of our privacy and yet were quite available for our queries. The french window shown in the cover picture above the garage door is the main sitting room window in the casita. There is a beautiful sitting area just to the right of the garage door that is for the casita and has garden table and chairs to eat at .

Please note that this address is on a major hill in San Miguel and the streets are paved with an uneven cobblestone, so it may be difficult for those who are not good walkers. Bring substantial walking shoes as much of San Miguel is the same cobblestone.

All around a very great stay

Wonderful Casita To Come Home To

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2 weeks in January. Delightful weather - the days were warm and the nights cool. This private apartment is a 20 minute walk from most everywhere we wanted to go in San Miguel.

The owners were very helpful with restaurant tips and sightseeing ideas, plus they gave us a fact sheet on tipping, using taxis, grocery shopping, etc. We loved our stay in San Miguel de Allende. Wear proper footwear, you will not be able to avoid walking on some hilly, cobbled streets.

Convenient - Comfortable - Close to Centro

  • 5 of 5

The hosts Bob and Cher were super, reading us and our needs just right by inviting us along on interesting ventures at times, offering us lots of helpful hints, yet also giving us lots of time and space to be ourselves. The casita was perfectly located for the two of us in that we could explore the center of San Miguel totally on foot, taking the "very affordable" taxis only once the dark set in. If you are looking for that homey feeling, you will love this unit as it is nicely and comfortably decorated, and overlooks a great enclosed garden court. All in all, our month long stay in this casita proved to be all it promised and more.... Maybe next year?!

Delightful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in San Miguel. Bob and Cher's casita was the perfect place for my wife and I to stay. The location is great - close enough to walk to Centro and far enough away escape the fireworks and celebrations. This casita is nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Most importantly our hosts were so very accommodating which was helpful to 1st time visitors to San Miguel. We'll stay here again when we return! Thank you Bob and Cher for a great vacation.

Car: not necessary

Great location. A quick walk to shops, restaurants, gallaries with no steep streets to climb. Our casita is behind a gated wall on a quiet dead-end street. 10 min. walk to Instituto, 12 min to Jardin, 5 min. to Parque Juarez.
