A friendly caretaker family lives in a separate home on site; they have lived on and managed the property through multiple generations 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.
