About the Property
4 Bedrooms (1K, 1Q, 1 F, 4 Twins), 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9-10
This warm and brightly decorated home has four cozy bedrooms (1K, 1Q, 1F, 4TwBunks) that comfortably sleep 9-10 along with 4 bathrooms. All bedrooms have comforters and the home features 2 gas fireplaces, for comfortable living year-round. The newly-built handicap accessible queen master bedroom has a stunning boveda ceiling and tiled bath with a jacuzzi tub. The second-floor master bedroom has a gas fireplace, king-sized bed, and is next to a bedroom with 2 twin bunks that is convenient for families traveling with children. The rooftop bedroom features a large terrace with a view over San Miguel.
This is a completely walled-in property featuring maintained gardens and is perfect for the pet-lover or for kids needing space to run. The kitchen is well-equipped, including a gas stove, refrigerator and microwave. There are four private terraces for dining, reading, writing or resting. The home also has WIFI and cable television for staying in touch with the world outside. There is a formal dining room and a sunny breakfast nook.
A friendly on-site caretaker family, who have lived on and managed the property through multiple generations, lives in a separate dwelling and is available to clean, do laundry, run errands, or simply answer questions about San Miguel. House cleaning every 3 days is included in the rent. Laundering and other services are available for an additional fee.
There is a covered carport, although this home is so close to town that a car is rarely needed unless you want to venture out to the nearby hot springs, historic Delores Hidalgo, or the many other sites near San Miguel. This home is a magical retreat into old San Miguel, while also offering easy access to San Miguel's downtown treasures.
