Great casita and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

This casita was a wonderful home for my wife and me during our stay in San Miguel de Allende for the month of January. It’s located in the area of San Miguel that we most like to stay, in the vicinity of the Ignacio Ramírez market. It’s safe and secure behind high walls. The hosts, Dan and Bea, designed and built the casita (and their adjacent casa) with attention to detail, to make it a very inviting place. The king size bed is one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. The bathroom is especially serene, spacious, and beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well designed and equipped – facilitating easy preparation of breakfasts, and our occasional lunches and dinners. Because we both came down with colds, we spent more time in the casita than we expected, and found it comfortable/inviting even under those adverse circumstances.

Dan and Bea were very welcoming, generous and friendly. They had lots of ideas and recommendations for our stay. The minor questions we had were quickly addressed. We highly recommend this casita and are definitely planning to visit again ourselves.

A lovely home away from home stay in this “casita”

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in San Miguel de Allende and staying in “la casita” had a great deal to make our vacation there so enjoyable. It is a very new house with very nice interior, european windows that shut off almost all the sounds from the street and keeping a nice temperature indoors. The kitchen is fully equiped with pots and pans, dishes and glass ware etc. The living room area is beside the kitchen. A large bedroom is upstairs with a very comfortable king size bed, a lot storage space and a large bathroom with the comfort of your own home.

The casita is walking distance to the main plaza “el jardin” and to all the important things to see in San Miguel. The mercado (market) is 3 blocks away where you can buy all kinds of fruit and vegetables. Next to the food market is the largest “mercado de artesanias” in San Miguel, a lovely artisans market to buy gift and souvenirs to take back home. 😉�👍�

I would highly recommend this casita , I can assure you, you will love it too !

Designer Suite in Central San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

This suite on two levels met all of my needs in Centro San Miguel. Beautifully designed and appointed. I lacked for nothing in the suite. The security system and the water filtration system made for a very comfortable stay, no bottled water needed at this casita! I would highly recommend this VRBO to all, and I would be pleased to stay there again when I return to San Miguel. Coral C.

Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

Nice location, close to the central market and square. It is on a relatively quiet street, in a private courtyard.

Map

Nearest Airport
55 Miles

In 2008 UNESCO recognized San Miguel de Allende and the neighboring Sanctuary of Jesus de Atotonilco as World Heritage of Humanity sites, citing the town's religious and civil architecture as a demonstration of the evolution of different trends and styles, from Baroque to late 19th century Neo-Gothic.

Located in Guanajuato state, 265 km (165 miles) northeast of Mexico City and 96 km (60 miles) from the state capital, Guanajuato city, San Miguel is located within Mexico's hilly central highlands. San Miguel de Allende has no international airport so visitors usually fly into either the Leon/Bajio airport or the Mexico City airport and then take a bus. This is not a major drawback and may in fact add to the city's charm: the sound of an airplane coming in for a landing never disrupts the pealing of church bells, plus the effort required to get here makes it all the more enjoyable.

Walking is undoubtedly the best way to explore San Miguel. A car can be more of a hindrance than a help in town, though it can be useful for day trips to the nearby cities of Guanajuato, Dolores Hidalgo or Queretaro. When your feet get tired, hop on the sightseeing trolley that departs from the tourism office on the north side of the Jardín Principal. After a tour of the main points of interest, it will take you to the Mirador, a lookout point where you'll be able to have a panoramic view of the city.

There is a substantial expat community in San Miguel, so it's easy to find services in English and hotels and restaurants cater to the Americans, Canadians and Europeans who flock here. It is still very much a Mexican town, however, where locals cheerily co-exist with the foreigners who visit or call this city home.

San Miguel is a preferred destination of art lovers. Whether you're an aspiring or accomplished artist, or just prefer to admire the creations of others, you'll be happy here. Studio openings, courses and workshops form a vital part of the thriving arts scene. Galleries, boutiques and shops selling a wide range of art and handicrafts are plentiful so it won't be hard to find souvenirs to take home with you.

San Miguel de Allende has an air of tranquility about it, belying the fact that there is always something happening. This is the perfect city for an extended stay. Take a Spanish course or some art classes and make yourself at home. It is safe to walk around day and night and the climate is pleasant year-round.
