About Cristina Arroyo

Cristina Arroyo purchased this House in 2002
Why Cristina Arroyo chose San Juan del Río
I bought this house when it was not finished and abandoned. I did not have to see the interior of the house to fall in love with the location and the promising future of this property. I just returned from Greece when I started the remodeling work that became an act of love, as the house needed much more work than expected. This home has become one of my favorite places to relax and enjoy the sound of birds, the water views, the peaceful location. Whoever walks in inevitably falls in love with this unique place, the lake is the heart of the house and the decor invites to enjoy life and relax!
What makes this House unique
Located directly on the lake, comfort, privacy. Definitely the best location of San Gil; main gate right on 45 highway, making it easy to get to the most important cities in central Mexico. Southern exposure, large windows and the best view you can imagine. No need to have AC or heat! Weather is mild all year round, warm summers, easy winters! And most of all plenty of daylight all year round. Safe location, walking distance to all you need.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely place at a great price.
I wish I could say there's places like this one in Chicago but there isn't. This place is isolated enough for our family to disconnect from the life in a big city yet close enough to town to not lack any of the amenities. Cristina was quick to reply and help us out all throughout our trip and I hope we get to stay with her again.
The place was clean and well upkept in a gorgeous location that made our family feel safe and comfortable. Gracias Cristina!
Thanks for your review, you were perfect guests!
Thanks for taking care of the house. I hope to have you back soon!
Preciosa casa, única ubicación!
La casa es preciosa, con una decoración muy bonita e impecable y de buen muy buen gusto. La cocina es amplia y con todos los accesorios. La vista al lago que es única y maravillosa!
Mi familia y yo disfrutamos cada momento, ya que es un lugar muy tranquilo, fuimos a pasear a Bernal y a Tequisquiapan, están muy cerca. San Gil es muy bonito, seguro y la gente muy amable.
Hay un Super Q en donde compramos leche, huevos y botanas, también hay un restaurante de pizzas y pollo, muy rico y sencillo. Hay otras tiendas que venden queso, leche, verduras, frutas y carnes.
No hay necesidad de salir de compras. San Juan del Rio es una ciudad Colonial bonita con todo. Fuimos a Liverpool, es pequeño, pero mi hija necesitaba un traje de baño.
Paty la cocinera es muy buena y amable. Cristina estuvo pendiente de responder a nuestras preguntas inmediatamente.
No tuvimos que ver a nadie, pues la casa tiene chapa de combinación así que la llegada fue fácil y tranquila.
Si esta pensando en rentarla, usted como nosotros quedara sorprendido por el lugar, por la bella casa y el servicio.
Esperemos volver pronto! Gracias Cristina!!
Muchas gracias por sus comentarios, y gracias por la tarjeta de agradecimiento! Fue un placer tenerlos como huespedes! Hasta Pronto,
Wonderful place and a very comfortable house
San Gil es un gran lugar para descansar y para recorrer localidades cercanas de gran interés turístico y culinario en el centro de México.
La casa se encuentra en excelentes condiciones y tiene una ubicación privilegiada con vista al lago. Todo, instalaciones, muebles, decoración y utensilios, se encuentra limpio y en perfectas condiciones.
Realmente recomiendo el lugar y felicito a Cristina
Muchas gracias por tus comentarios, me alegra mucho que hayan disfrutado su estancia en la casa y los lugares interesantes que hay cerca!
Espero que regresen pronto!
Great house, sunsets, peaceful place!
We want to thank Cristina for all the help we received from her. The house was just gorgeous, lots of details, clean, everything working perfectly, much more of what we expected. The lake view is beautiful, specially the sunsets. San Gil is a great place to rest and the surrounding towns are a treat. Our friends and us were delightful with the house, no complains, just gratitude. We hope to come back soon!
Thanks for your review, I am happy to know you enjoyed staying at my house! It is very rewarding to know I could made your vacation special.
Come back soon!
Gorgeous lake home with fantastic second floor master suite with very large balcony!
My wife and I stayed here for just under four weeks and we loved it. We walked around the lake almost every day (70 minutes total), ate outside both by the lake and on the balcony, and were really able to unwind and recharge.
With the wifi I could work every day.
Shopping for groceries in San Juan Del Rio was easy, and if we needed something small there are stores in San Gil that sell food, vegetables, cheese and pizza (they deliver).
We enjoyed eating dinner at Campo Bravo, Galindo, and Corral de la Vaca, all reasonably priced with excellent food. For breakfast we ate at the Club House in San Gil overlooking the lake.
We rented a car and driving around was easy with the MapQuest app.
We recommend this place and we will return! Thanks Cristina--your attention to detail and commitment to perfection shows!
Thanks for your review, I am so glad to know you enjoyed your trip to Mexico. I hope to have you and your wife back soon!
Great stay at San Gil
We loved staying at San Gil on our recent trip to Queretaro.
at first, we didn´t expected it to be so far out from the city, but this turned out to be one of the best features the house has to offer.
its location is great if you plan to visit the nearby towns, we enjoyed day trips to san juan del río, peña de bernal and tequisquiapan.
getting to this "pueblos magicos" is a short drive from San Gil.
The house is beautiful, well kept and its location overlooking the lake makes it all the better, its peaceful and quiet and really lends its self for enoying quality family time.
Patricia, the house keeper, is friendly and warm, she even cooked somo seriously delicious pozole for us!
We loved our time here and will definetly consider coming back!
Thank you so much for your review, I am so glad to know you enjoyed your staying at my house and it is rewarding to know we did a good job.
It was a pleasure to have you as guests and hope to have you back soon!
