  • Light-filled Condo with Incredible View!

    "My husband and I spent almost two months at this condo and found it very enjoyable, perfect for one or two people. Although the bathroom was a bit small the shower itself was very spacious and always had good water pressure. With windows on three sides we had loads of light coming in throughout the day. Having the terrace with table and chairs right off the dining area was very convenient. Most mornings at about 7am we were able to watch the hot air balloons take off -- once they even came quite nearby, just off the terrace where it overlooks a large, open field in the foreground of the view overlooking downtown San Miguel de Allende. Due to the strategic positioning of a mirror on the bedroom wall on my side of the bed, every night, if I left the bedroom door open, my last view would be that of this beautiful church with lights all around it. Those lights stayed on all night, truly beautiful. There was also a very spacious rooftop terrace with more outdoor furniture accessible via a spiral staircase that my husband took advantage of occasionally. The condo has 24/7/365 gated live security which made us feel comfortable with having brought our car down with us on this trip. The pool looked lovely; however, it wasn't warm enough for us to take advantage of it. The grounds-keeping by the full-time gardeners was top notch, right down to the waterfall just outside the bedroom Juliet balcony. And the beautiful indigenous potted plants continued from the front doorway, to the dining terrace and rooftop patio. Thank you, Chris, for our enjoyable stay."

  • Great stay!

    "Truly enjoyed our two-month stay in this house. It was our first time, though we've been to San Miguel half-a-dozen times over the last seven or eight years, always renting a house. We like the idea of feeling at a 'home', and this place has it in spades. Spacious, comfortable, clean, and just a delight to be in (kitchen gets special mention -- Diane's a cocinera and knows whatof she speaks!). There was just the two of us for most of our stay (it was fun switching bedrooms every now and then just to enjoy the house's various senses of ambiance), but we did have our daughter and her two children (5 and 9) with us for a couple of weeks. They really enjoyed themselves, for the house and the patio and the terrace are wonderful to kick around and hang out in. Ditto for the neighborhood. So much to see and do -- close in (just north of Orizaba, one of the main east-west streets leading west off of the Ancha), we walked everywhere we needed/wanted to go, and ate ourselves silly in the various restaurants, cafes, storefronts, butcher shops, front stoops and hand-carts. San Antonio is a wonderful section of town, with warm, friendly people everywhere and streets just made for walking around and exploring. Erica, the housekeeper, is an absolute jewel, as is Arcadio, the gardener. Always welcoming and courteous, we never found them intrusive at all (actually looked forward to their arriving). The manager is just a few blocks away, and although we didn't have an occasion to see him much much when we did he was friendly and warm as well. Just a great stay at a great house in a great area in one of the best towns in Mexico -- must say we'll be back..."

  • Excellent..........as described

    "Our stay was exactly as described by owners. Charles (Carlos) and Linda go all out to make your stay at Casa Bella as easy and comfortable as possible. Linda's own artwork plus their personal collection of Mexican art enhances the experience. Carlos makes sure your comfortable from the time of booking, your arrival until your departure. Wish we could have stayed longer. RE San Miguel d'Allende - have known about this destination since the late 60's but this was my first visit: most likely more charming, more 'natural' and fewer Americans back then, but still maintains a special charm and atmosphere. Easy to understand why there are more Ex-pats there."

  • Wutta GEM!!!

    "I always wondered what it would be like to actually live (if only for one week in our case) in a home out of the pages of Architectural Digest. NOW I KNOW...fabu!! Having been through a few remodels myself, I can only imagine the headaches that must have come with ALL of the design decisions made in creating the perfect home base environment to enjoy a stay in San Antonio, San Miguel de Allende. The amenities are, to understate, too many to enumerate but, suffice to say, everything you need to accomplish on your visit...you WILL be able to! Casa Fortuna is positioned in a residential area outside the central zone and is a healthy hike or a short AND cheeeeep taxi ride away from shopping, restaurants and all attractions. We are told that SMA is usually a fairly sleepy little town made even milder by the super laid back attitudes of the locals. We arrived on Christmas Eve eve and stayed until New Years Day...& honestly it was bedlam (in a pretty good way, I guess) although, it might be nice to return when it's not such a celebration. Really, people came into town from ALL over, and it was basically mobbed...Times Square in NYC has nuthin' on this place during a holiday week!!! Casa Fortuna is on the edge of a very active community in San Antonio...people out at all hours (except mornings), dogs barking through the night, roosters crowing at dawn through mid-morning, fireworks, parties, loud bangs (???) proliferated while we were there. Luckily, we brought earplugs and used them! Norma & Lupe were just great...going above & beyond. Norma even arranged to have the rooftop terrace fireplace working a couple of days before departure and we REALLY enjoyed it up there. In December you need a fire to take the chill off the morning and evening temps which are coolish. Totally in the spirit of aiming for perfection we aren't fans of the solar water heating system. We could operate it well enough on our end, but it's hardly efficient from a user standpoint. It takes 3-5 minutes to actually get hot water out of the shower, wasting a LOT of precious Mexican filtered water. The pressure isn't great but passable AND, the lovely bathtubs are clearly for show ONLY. With no hot tub on the amenities list when we booked, I was deliriously happy to see two big soaking tubs for my daily, lengthy bath with book & wine. Soooo sad when it became obvious that baths were not on the agenda due to extremely slow water flow & non-working drain plugs. A memorable stay."
