"We stayed in this house in July and August of 2016 while we were deciding whether or not to move to SMA and again in December while we were waiting for our furniture to arrive for our house. This is a great house. First of all the house manager greats you and takes care of you while you are there. He was even kind enough to stock the house with some basic food and drinks to get us through the first days (have to have coffee the first morning!). The kitchen is more than fantastic for a rental. It's as good or possibly better than home. It is fully stocked with lots of great dinnerware, glassware, pots, pans, serving pieces, storage containers and every utensil you could need. You could easily entertain as many people as you want. It has a dishwasher which is not always the case here.
There are 4 bedrooms as listed, two of which as masters. One has a fireplace, separate dressing room and bathroom. There are screens on all upstairs windows for those great cool nights. There are flat screen TVs and DVD players in both masters as well as in the living room. Peggy provides very nice linens which can be difficult to find in most rentals.
The house is located in oneinf the best areas of SMA, Guadiana. It is a beautiful, clean, safe and charming area. One and a half blocks down is my favorite park - Guadiana Park. We had 2 dogs and they loved it and we met SO many nice neighbors in the park and along the street.
Taxis are easily found on the street or 2 blocks down on the Ancha. There are some great restaurants close by and it is an easy 15 minute walk to the centro. At the end of the street is the Saturday Organic Market. That same venue, Mercado Sano is open 7 days a week with small vendors selling, produce, organic meat, quiches, sausages, coffee, tea, cheeses, desserts and personal natural beauty products - all top of the line.
Also close by is the historic Instituto Allende which offers top notch Spanish classes and art classes.
We have visited her many times and after years of researching rental properties I found this house to a great value for the house, its size and location. It's a can't miss!"
