About Gail Vibe

I was a huge fan of Marion Perlet's art and when she died on a cruise Nov/13 I remembered how charming her casa was and spontaneously bought it without even looking at it to purchase.

I had been coming to San Miguel for 5 years and had been very taken with the old world charm of San Miguel and also the increase in synchronicities while there.

Although at first I questioned my impulsive purchase (had to second mortgage my home in Toronto to purchase) I have come to realize that there are no accidents and the beauty and charm of this casa unfolds more with every visit!

Gail Vibe purchased this house in 2014

Wonderful stay in a Wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 fabulous days in San Miguel and Gail's house was a perfect place to stay The house is beautiful and unique. It was perfect accommodations for our party of 8.

The kitchen is well appointed & great for morning breakfast or a home cooked meal after a long day of sightseeing. 3 full bathrooms were a big plus. The rooftop patio, with a view of the city, breathtaking! There are restaurants and little convince stores near by. The center of town is only a 15 minute walk from the house or a 40-50 peso ($3.00) cab ride. There were a few minor issues, but the property manager, Leonor, was easy to get in touch with and quick to solve the issues. If you do have older travelers or ones with disabilities. The last hill to get to the house is pretty steep.

I highly recommend Gail's home for your stay in San Miguel.

Pictures do not do the house justice

  • 5 of 5

My wife, pup, cat and I had a wonderful stay in Nov. The house is more beautiful than the pictures could capture. The staff was very welcoming, helpful and very professional. We enjoyed the house very much and its location to the centro. Thank you Gail for being so accommodating with our fur babies we look forward to staying with you again.

Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful, loved the decor. I loved the big mirror in the living room, wish I couldve taking it home :) My parents and I enjoyed the house. Leonor and Christina were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you Gail for being prompt with your responses and for being very informative. The list you provided helped me and my Fiancé getting around in SMA.

MAGICAL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5

ALTHOUGH THE HOUSE'S STREET IS A LITTLE BIT NARROW, THE HOUSE ITSELF IS A VERY SPECIAL ONE. WE COULN`T ENJOY IT AS MUCH AS WE COULD'VE JUST BECAUSE WE HAD TO BE OUT MOST OF THE DAY BUT IF POSIBBLE I WOULD'VE HAD BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER IN THE ROOF TOP!

SUPER!

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 10 days in this charming casa. The house is beautifully appointed, with gorgeous art, wonderful lighting, and a great kitchen. The rooftop is to die for, sipping margaritas looking down unto the town in the evening with the sun setting behind the mountains. Absolutely gorgeous.

About a 15 minute walk to the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel.

Great home, great town. Highly recommend it.
