About the property

1 Bedroom for two people + firm sofa bed for 3d, 1 Bath (Maximum 3 guests)

Casita Treetops is nestled on a hillside among the tree tops overlooking the beautiful colonial city of San Miguel de Allende. Take advantage of serious rental savings of 7 day periods and even more for a stay of at least 30 days. Just a short 7 minute walk to the Jardin! Enjoy morning coffee or sunset from your own private balcony. This 1 bedroom cozy casita has an open floor plan with plenty of large windows that give a feeling of spaciousness and light. Colorful seating flanks large windows face the small, terraced garden or overlook rooftops and city views. The wide granite bar seating is perfect for casual dining. The kitchen is equipped with toaster-oven, microwave, coffee pot, blender, dishes and glassware for up to 6 guests, cooking utensils, etc.

The comfortable King-sized bedroom (which can also be set up as two twin beds) has extra down comforters and ample pillows and bedding. There is an additional bed for one that can be made up in the living room. The bedroom has a work station below a wall mounted Smart TV with DVD player. A 42" Smart TV is located in the kitchen and can be adjusted to be viewed from anywhere in the living areas. Basic cable TV and you can bring your own Apple TV, Amazon Fire or other USB enabled media appliance. One Ipod dock/clock is in the bedroom. Wi-fi throughout the home for use with your own devices. Please note that internet speeds may not mirror that which you are accustomed to in your home country. The updated bath has both shower and tub, great for relaxing after a day's sightseeing, shopping, language or art studies. Two free pool passes included; additional pool use and gym use are available by arrangement with the staff at the covered swimming pool located steps away, but far enough away to go unnoticed. You're going to love life at Treetops!

NOTE: ACH or E-check payment via VRBO website preferred over credit card payments, but both are accepted.

Winter rates increase because we are finding that "snowbirds" often use much more electricity and gas to keep the home toasty at all times (even when they are not there, in some cases).While we support smart resource use by turning off lights and heat when not in use, we also want our guests to be comfortable during their stay. This modest seasonal increase during the winter months reflects the reality of higher utility costs associated with that season even though the usage of individual guests may vary.

Check-in starts at 3 p.m. and Check-out ends at noon. If our calendar permits, a request for a late check out made as early as you know your need may be subject to accommodation, depending on our schedule for cleaning and the arrival date of the next group of guests. Thank you for keeping this in mind as you plan the time on your last day.

About Local Manager: Yoko Nishiguchi

Your host is a San Francisco native who discovered San Miguel in 2004 and has been visiting annually ever since. I enjoy cataloguing my favorite activities, restaurants and events to share with visitors. There is a binder in the apartment with tips for household operations and for activities in the area. Welcome to my (and your) home away from home!

Local Manager: Yoko Nishiguchi purchased this condo in 2005

Why Local Manager: Yoko Nishiguchi chose Zona Centro

Located in the historic centro district, but well above and away from the noise of the central jardin and the streets. The hillside location offers nice city views and breezes. Common noise of the city center is often buffered at this location. A short walk to the jardin, but taxi service (about $3 US per ride) is easily arranged to and from your door.

What makes this condo unique

I am unaware of any properties at this price point that offer a pool and gym, wi-fi, Smart TVs, in-unit washer-dryer and twice-weekly maid service. Lovely views and breezes. Relative calm and quiet for a central location near the hub of activity. A very 'clean' unit. A professional, local manager is available to assist you with your arrival, departure and any needs during your stay.

Fabulous Choice

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casita Treetops and we love it. The local manager answered all our questions promptly and we had no problems. There's filtered water in the kitchen and bottled drinking water is provided. This casita is close to downtown but at the top of a steep hill. This turns out to be perfect, because we walked downtown to be part of the action, and then returned up the hill to a quiet, friendly atmosphere. We walked up the hill sometimes, but after a delicious dinner in town, we often took a cab ride home -- cabs are inexpensive in San Miguel. The "little white book" provided by the owner gives great info on what to do in San Miguel as well as how to get to the local grocery and other useful facts. We highly recommend a stay at Casita Treetops. Our time in San Miguel was dreamy!

Casual Elegance in San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

We think 700 square feet have never been better arranged for comfort and convenience. The four huge windows provide views of the little garden, the terrace, the city and the trees, but your privacy is assured because no one accesses your staircase but you. Storage space abounds, a safe held our extra cash, and the kitchen was equipped with every device imaginable. The TV offered all the major US stations plus a few more like CNN and PBS.

One distinct pleasure was having plenty of hot water--sometimes a rarity in SMA. The terrace provided great views of town and occasionally fireworks. The local manager was helpful and immediately responsive to questions. Truly, the only aspect of this gem we would change is the furniture; it was comfortable only for short periods of time.

We strongly recommend taking the "shortcut" to the street by using the gate on the terrace to access the hillside steps. We are in our late sixties and thought we were in great shape with daily visits to our local gym, so we walked to town every day but the steep climb proved too much and we took a taxi every day (35-40 pesos which is about $2) to return "home." We also felt the pool was slippery with no handrails or steps so we only used it once.

We loved having maid service and a responsive guard at the gate house who arranged for water delivery or taxi service.

All in all, we felt this treetop casita offered the right mix of comfort, privacy, and convenience. We know you'll be thrilled to call it your temporary home while you explore the wonderful city pf San Miguel de Allende.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the thoughtful comments. So glad you had such a good time. You are correct that Mexican safety standards are different and I am glad you made the decision that was right for you in terms of pool safety. Sorry to hear that the several pillows did not do the job for your comfort in the living room seating. Best, Julie

Great place. Lots of steps

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed here several times. Great condo. Has pool and gym available. Only thing to be prepared for are steps to access. Short walk to town but I sometimes take cab home when I don't feel like hiking the hill

Owner's Response: Delighted to host you again. I agree that the inexpensive and readily available cabs are a great alternative to the walk uphill whenever the mood strikes. Julie

Owner's Response: Hi, Lauren. Thanks for such a positive review. I tried to review you, as a guest, in the same vein, but had trouble with the system. If you ever return, we'd love to have you again. Julie

Convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two-week stay here and would highly recommend it to other singles or couples. It is close to El Jardin and for most of our daytime trips we walked there and back. The hills are quite steep, but doable (note: we are in our 70s, so we carried canes that helped us navigate the cobblestone streets throughout the town). At night, taxis are readily available and inexpensive. We cooked about half of our meals inside the unit and everything we needed was available and clean. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. We enjoyed most of our afternoons sitting on the wonderful west facing patio enjoying the sunshine and the magnificent view!

Owner's Response: HI! Delighted to hear that you found everything to your liking. I, too, love the hillside location that allows one to enjoy the views, breezes and outside life. Particularly happy to hear from cooks that the kitchen is well outfitted. Happy travels, Julie

Lovely condo in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, well appointed condo in a quiet location. The kitchen is well equiped and everything is in good repair and very clean. Comfy king bed and lots of hot water.

Yoko, the manager was very welcoming and met us at the condo and answered all our questions. The pool is very near the condo and I very much enjoyed my refreshing swims at the end of the afternoon. The condo is located 15 to 20 minutes by foot from the main plaza. It is an uphill walk and sturdy walking shoes are recommended in this area (ROUGH cobblestones). From the main road, there would be the equivalent of 2 flights of stairs to the condo. There is security 24 hours and the grounds are well attended . I would recommend this condo to anyone seeking a quiet, secure location. If the walk to town is an issue, taxis pass on the road at a regular basis (not expensive). The owner returned our damage deposit after an email reminder.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your compliments supporting our on-going efforts to provide a comfortable retreat and local management support for our guests along with your detailed description of your personal experience with pedestrian and vehicular access. While it does add some time to the walk, another option to the steeper driveway/staircase pedestrian access route immediately below the apartment is to walk the somewhat inclined Sto. Domingo to the upper gate and walk back the length of the broad, mostly flat, driveway within the complex. I apologize again for the brief delay in processing your security deposit refund. Julie
