Your private Oasis in the Heart of San Miguel

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Three Bedroom, Plus Studio A 10 minute walk to The Jardin

If you are the traveler who wants to live and feel as if you are part of San Miguel then this home is perfect; located in the heart of the San Miguel. As you walk out the door you can either walk to the bustling Mercado San Juan de Dios, a quiet church or any of the many restaurants that fill the surrounding streets.

Our delightful home recently underwent a complete painting and is perfect for families, an intimate vacation for up to three couples, with private quarters for everyone. In 2017 we completed 2 bathroom renovations. The charming garden with fountain and large sun terrace allow for much time to be spent outside enjoying the beautiful San Miguel weather.

This bright airy home circles around your private courtyard. Here you can relax and enjoy the gentle splashing of the fountain as you linger over coffee, a late breakfast, evening meals and after-dinner drinks. The living room is perfect for entertaining friends and family, watching a movie after a meal prepared in the lovely Mexican tiled and spacious kitchen. The 3 bedroom home has two bedrooms with queen size beds on the ground floor. Each bedroom has separate entrance, a private bathroom and windows opening onto the courtyard. Casa San Juan de Dios is all about outdoor living; the bright and airy living room opens onto the central courtyard.

The terrace is tastefully landscaped with ficus trees and bougainvillea. The second level master suite overlooks the courtyard.

Your house keeper comes to clean and change linens, but is available for an extra fee to come more often, cook or babysit. Our property manager will be your host, serving as a great source of information and can assist you with all of your scheduling needs.

About Shaun

Our parents have been vacationing in SMA for years; in 2015 my wife and I visited and immediately fell in love! The 4 of us agreed that SMA should become our home away from home and began our search to find the perfect home. As retirees, our parents enjoy traveling the world while my wife and I have come to the conclusion that there is more to life than working 9-5. Whether family our guests, we take great pleasure in knowing that we can open our home to others and enjoy all that is San Miguel.

Shaun purchased this house in 2015

Why Shaun chose Zona Centro

This property is San Miguel. The décor speaks to traditional Mexican architecture and the location puts us at the doorstep of all that is San Miguel. We are steps away from the market, which allows us to shop for fresh foods and flowers daily. Everything we need is steps away from our front door. Behind the doors is a sanctuary for us to spend our lazy afternoons.

What makes this house unique

Our home recently (2015) underwent a complete, inside and out re-painting. We spent many hours testing until we selected colors that are very calming/relaxing and highlight the unique craftsmanship throughout. Current photos do not show our new colors, but our most recent guests LOVE IT! In September 2016 we completed an expansion/renovation of the master bathroom and purchased new washer and dryer. Our parents continue to add their personal touch each time they visit San Miguel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Shaun: Merry Christmas to you too! Our stay has been excellent and we are still enjoying our last hours in your nice home. Thanks a lot for your kindness and we hope to be in touch, again soon.

Best regards, SSD

It was comfortable in every sense! Perfect sitting areas for all six of us to sit, talk and laugh.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed Shaun's home. Very welcoming! I had never rented a home, always hotels. This experience totally changed my mind.

It was an hacienda of sorts, just perfect. We would conjugate in the courtyard every night, play games, recount our day, and laugh. There was so much laughter. San Miguel is by far a beautiful place as is this home.

We asked if the cleaning woman would cook us a meal for an extra charge and she was willing. Soledad and her sister cooked a wonderful meal. I would highly recommend that anyone renting this home ask about her cooking for them. Delicious!

Jesus the caretaker was very welcoming and friendly, made sure we were comfortable. Was easy to communicate with.

We had fresh orange every morning! A woman around the block squeezes and sells different juices!! The market is out the door to the right one block. Fresh fruit and vegetables. It was a perfect place to stay and we had a wonderful time. Thanks for having this home available to rent!

A wonderful casa near everything

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at this very livable Mexican home. Just a few blocks up the hill to the Jardin and all of the center of San MIguel. The four bedrooms were perfect for our family who just love our visits to San Miguel. A great kitchen and living room which everyone fit in. I can certainly recommend this home. Everything went perfect with the visit.

Wonder property, Great central Location

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to San Miguel we had no idea what to expect. The property is a short walk to the town center and right next door to a large market. The staff who look after the property are fantastic and willing to help with any queries or recommendations. We would highly recommend this property if you are thinking of going to San Miguel.

Wonderful stay in a well-located house

  • 5 of 5

Our party of six was very happy at Indio Triste this past week! All aspects, from the lovely courtyard to the comfy furnishings to the advanced water filtration system (so nice not to have to shower with mouths closed and brush teeth with bottled water, as is normal in Mexico!) to communications with owner Shaun and house manager Jesus, ran very cordially and smoothly.

Several caveats, neither of them about the house itself: the house is literally next door to one of SMA's large open-air markets, which was being renovated when we were there. That meant noise fairly early in the morning. On the other hand, how convenient to have an excellent market so close at hand! Second, expect a four-block uphill walk on typically ankle-twisting SMA cobblestone streets to reach the Jardin and Parroquia. Just watch your step and wear sturdy-soled shoes and you'll be fine.

Family weekend in San Miguel de Allende.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a weekend, we liked the house very much. It was extremely clean and comfortable. On this time of the year, the weather in San Miguel is beginning to get warmer, the house is kind of warm with not much cross ventilation.

Overall a great house for a great price, comfortable and close to "El Centro".

The manager "Jesus" very kind and attentive.
