About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

2 bedrooms, 2-1/2 baths. Secured behind gates and located in a quiet, exclusive and private neighborhood just 2 blocks from the Instituto de Allende in central San Miguel. A flat 7 minute walk to the Jardin, and only a block to one of the best neighborhood grocery stores, 24 hour pharmacy, a great deli, art galleries and restaurants make this one of the most desirable spots in San Miguel.

The first floor features the living room with fireplace which looks out onto the plant filled patio with its tiled fountain. Another large outdoor patio is off the kitchen. The two story dining room seats 8 and is perfect for entertaining. Viewing balconies look down from above. The light-filled, fully equipped kitchen boasts all new appliances and amenities. A half-bath is tiled in blue and white.

The second floor (bedroom, full bath and second living room): The spacious guest bedroom has twin beds (optional as a king) which feature locally hand-carved wooden headboards, and has French doors which open up for a view of the mountains. The full bath is tastefully decorated in Mexican blue and white tile. The second floor living room with television has a boveda ceiling (domed brick), is decorated with all new furniture, a few antiques, opens to the dining room below and looks out over the terrace and fountain below.

The third floor features a romantically-decorated master bedroom with a boveda ceiling, a queen-sized bed and a full-bath. Luxury linens provide complete comfort. The roof-top terrace is plant-filled with comfortable furniture and a lovely view of the mountains and city.

Maid service provided.

About Mark Hager

We are professionals living in Minneapolis who love being in San Miguel when we can. Our house is in a perfect location, and everyone who visits is happy there. The city and our great friends there are very important to us.

Mark Hager purchased this house in 2005

Why Mark Hager chose Zona Centro

The culture, restaurants, people and pedestrian friendly lifestyle all combine to make San Miguel de Allende an ideal home away from home. The climate can't be beat. We feel so safe and cozy at Casa Iris, and the city and mountain views from the roof terrace are magical.

What makes this house unique

Casa Iris is only a short walk to many great restaurants, shops, a wonderful park and the Jardin. Plentiful taxis are 1/2 block away. The comfort and privacy of living behind a high wall while still having ample outdoor space is a rare find in the center of town. We feel great being there and so will you.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight days in this fantastic home with three generations under one roof. Nothing could have been better and as the English say the 'value for dollars' was amazing. We arrived to a huge cut flower display, i suppose from the adjacent flower stand. The plashing fountains, two levels of roof top deck with views forever… well tended plants and a well cleaned home with traditional tile floors. Cooking meals worked out well in the stocked kitchen--including traditional dish ware. There was plenty of room to spread out with two living rooms and huge dining area. The house has wonderful 'architectural interest'--the photos don't lie. The bedrooms are spacious and the en suite baths a bonus. The home is walking distance-- no thats wrong-- immediately adjacent to things as diverse as the huge Parque Juarez and the roof top dining at the Rosewood Hotel; to local supermarkets for the bottled water and milk run; to restaurants and shops; to the local Taco cart… and is perhaps four or five blocks to the Jardin and Parrochia at town center. The owner was very communicative and paid attention to details like making up one room as a king bed rather than two twins. The staff was unobtrusive and willing to be of further (negotiated) service. The home is on a gated cobble stone street behind a porte cochere, on a private courtyard covered with flowering vines--c'mon now, ¿whats not to like? We engaged the ** highly** recommendable SMARide for airport and day trips and they knew the location well. Do yourself a favor!

Wonderful Home, Great Staff, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a nearly perfect two weeks in San Miguel. This house is in the Barrio de la Aldea, which is quiet yet just a few steps from everything. Location really matters, and this is just perfection. Could not have been happier.
