Beware! A very deceptive listing by an unreasonable homeowner. The house was advertised as having two bedrooms. The second bedroom, on the roof, had no heat and in February the night temperature was 53F. One of us tried to sleep in the “media room” on a rock hard futon but that was impossible because of a metal rod down the center. We tried putting the outdoor chair cushion on the futon, but that didn’t work either so we were forced to bring down the mattress from the upstairs bedroom to put on the floor. We paid additional rent for the second unheated bedroom on the roof. We requested a return of our additional rent for use of the second bedroom, actually used for one night only, but were refused.
Although there were multiple TVs, none worked because there was no cable connection. We were not allowed to use the locked up washer and dryer as they were “for the maid” only.
There was no English speaking person to contact regarding concerns with the house or its location. We had to send e-mails to the homeowner in Chicago and she was most unpleasant to deal with. In one note she advised us that if we stole anything it would be deducted from our deposit!
THIS REVIEW IS TWO YEARS OLD AND WAS UNFAIR. SHE CHOSE TO COMPLAIN INSTEAD OF CONTACTING ME FOR MORE INFORMATION. THERE IS A HEATING UNIT UPSTAIRS IN BOTH ROOMS AS WELL AS RESTURANTE TYPE HEATERS ON THE PATIO.
I GUESS THERE IS A BAD APPLE IN EVERY BUSHEL I NOW HAVE ENGLIISH CHANNELS AND NETFLIX OPTIONS..
There is a very large warm orange comforter on the second floor bed that has a fluffy warm filling and makes sleeping warm and comfortable. Other renters have used this room without any comments or complaints. If this renter had contacted me, I would have given her information about special cushions that are used on the sofa when it is used for sleeping. I would have contacted the house maid to prepare it properly. I did not receive any request for a refund. The laundry room is opened to renters who stay one month or longer, but not for short term renters. The amenities section states there is no English speaking cable TV in Nuevo San Miguel but I have installed a cable to use a laptop to display on the large wall mounted TV.
I answered all arrival questions and am sorry she did not feel that was helpful. The pictures show the details of the house so one can see that I have everything that would provide for a comfortable stay. Other reviewers have commented on how well appointed the house is in their reviews.
.. Not happy to hear the second floor mattress was moved to the first floor! No extra money was charged just the whole house rates as posted.
A pleasant stay
This is a comfortable, modern home that is in a very quiet neighborhood about a 25 minute flat walk to the biblioteca and jardin. All amenities were as listed except there was no television service or working DVD player. This was not a problem for us as we enjoyed reading and other relaxing activities. Internet service was reliable. The maid and her husband, who served as a gardener, were exceptionally polite and helpful. The owner was responsive to our questions. There was a misunderstanding about whether propane gas was to be included in our monthly rental payment as we began our stay with very little gas in the tank and the owner only had it filled to slightly less than half a tank stating that it would be our responsibility to pay for any additional gas. It would have helped if we had understood this from the beginning. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
I am shocked that you only placed three stars in your review. This house is not of three star quality nor was your experience a three star experience.
You listed only your issues over the amount of gasoline.and DVD. I have already explained you came in the same day as the former renters left. on January 1st.and they came to fill the tank on the next working day.
The DVD was broken by the guests that were there jus before you and has since been replaced. I am sure you realize that it was impossible to have a new one sent before or during your stay...
On advise from VRBO customer service I have pasted your positive comments that you sent to me in your emails while you were staying in the house. I think they give viewers a more accurate account of your stay.
Comfortable Niche in Quiet Neighborhood
this home is beautifully appointed. The private outdoor seating area with water wall is a wonderful refuge. For us, the house was well situated; the 15 minute walk to Via Organica ( a great food market & restaurant) and the 30 minute walk to the Jardin were just right. Property Manager, Ben, and Security Guard, Jesus, were always extremely helpful. This was the perfect hub for all our tourist activities.
I am glad you and friends enjoyed Casa Blanca and liked Via Organica, a special place. Although walking times vary from person to person, keeping a group together can slow one down somewhat. Most people find the walk about half the time stated here, but I am happy you enjoyed yourselves with a four star rating.
Casa Blanca, San Miguel, Mexico
Sorry that it has taken so long to write this review to you.We have had to deal with some sickness.
But here it is.
We had a wonderful experience in your Casa Blanca. Our favorite time was watching the sun set from the second floor patio.
It was just the two of us, my husband and I, so we made little use of the upstairs rooms. Two couples or one couple with children would have been better. We would like to invite friends along to share the place with us the next time.
The neighborhood was lovely and we appreciated the security patrol and the police attention to the alarm we accidentally set off. The manager was especially helpful in several ways.
We really enjoyed walking along the Calzada de la Aurora with its shops and galleries – the Fabrica in particular – and restaurants (we ate a lot of Pollo Feliz and frequented the Via Organica often). Access to Centro was especially easy by bus and cabs were available whenever we needed them.
The house itself was beautiful and comfortable and the artwork was a pleasure to wake up to daily. If we can make it back to San Miguel, we would like to spend a longer time in the Casa Blanca.
