Description

The space

Beautiful house with lush garden and two fountains. Enjoy all the birds that frequent the garden early morning or late afternoon. Brightly painted 3 bedroom/ 2 bath artist home. Located in Colonia Linda Vista ( beautiful view ) at the crest of a hill with views of the city from the west. In a friendly Mexican neighborhood enjoy the local tiendas and thriving market at the bottom of the main street. Cabs and buses are available at the top of our street and the local bus marked Santa Julia can be boarded on Umaran st. and Zacateros drops you at the top of our short street. There is a gym down the main street and you can sign up daily or weekly if inclined. This stay offers a unique experience of living in a Mexican neighborhood. Our wonderful handyman Enrique lives in a separate apt. on the property but has no access or window views to the main property. He is there to help you in any way and you can make arrangements with him for any kind of transportation. We can arrange maid service at an additional charge if requested. Please note that weekend charges are slightly higher.

An absolutely stunning home and garden. Our only complaints were barking dogs and noisy neighbors.

Mary, So sorry you had that experience. All tranquil last weekend. I think some of the neighbors talked with the father.

This Airbnb is located in a Mexican residential area about a 15-20 minute walk to the historic center of San Miguel. If you take a taxi (inexpensive and numerous), it's more like 5-8 minutes. We walked frequently as it was good exercise and we enjoyed seeing the area. Instead of just seeing the downtown tourist area, you'll get a real feel for a local experience. At the top of the street, you'll find a store selling roasted chickens (delicious), a tortilla place, and a small butcher shop. Walking a few blocks toward town, you'll find a small grocery store (green awning) for basic supplies. Nancy is the woman who's frequently behind the counter, and she's friendly and helpful. Sometimes it's difficult to get a taxi. So we ended up using our Uber app on our phone and it was great. Fast and reliable and quite comparable to a taxi. We took a taxi to the local Tuesday market across town, which is a fun experience to see a huge market in full swing. The house was a real treat to live in. It's decorated with tons of Mexican art, has a beautiful, serene outdoor garden with two fountains, and was a pleasure to come home to every night. Three bedrooms. Master is large, comfortable bed, plenty of light. Second bedroom also has a comfortable bed with a built in desk. Both are on the second floor. Up to the third floor is a loft bedroom, quite large, with access to two decks. We called it the penthouse and our younger son was thrilled to have this space to himself. There are two bathrooms both with showers. Lots of towels were provided. Showers were good pressure. Not fabulous, but more than adequate. Kitchen (we did not cook as there were so many delicious food options around) was large and well stocked. Coffee maker, blender, microwave, fridge, stove/oven, plenty of dishes and cooking pots and pans. If you wished to cook, you'd be quite happy with the selection. There is a washer and dryer next to the kitchen. Everything worked and it was all clean on our arrival. Enriquez, is the caretaker and lives in a separate apartment from the house. He's a gem. Extremely pleasant man who maintains the house and grounds. He would take care of the garbage for us and was there should we need him. The neighborhood was safe and pleasant. We were out at all times of the day and night and never felt any concern to our personal safety. We had great communication with the owner before and during our stay. He gave many suggestions of what to do in SMA. We all loved our time here and would be very happy to return. We can highly recommend this spacious, beautifully decorated, comfortable home.

What can I say about this place that the pictures don’t convey? It is as advertised, a finely appointed and beautiful property with a large private courtyard oasis. Everything is in its place, and there is an onsite caretaker always available. We were just two couples but Gary and Katia’s home would be comfortable for a much larger party. We particularly enjoyed sitting out in the courtyard during happy hour and relaxing in the beautiful living area. The gated and shaded interior parking spot was also nice for storing our rental car. Since we traveled as a group of four, we used the inexpensive and readily available taxis for getting to the center of town, saving our energy for long walks around the stunningly beautiful city of San Miguel De Allende. Definitely recommend this property!

Great experience. Very cozy and unique home. We loved all of the artwork in the house and found it to be very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful as well. We spent time inside by the fireplace and outside listening to the sounds of the city. The location was a little far from the center of San Miguel. We actually thought the GPS took us to the wrong house at first. We had to take Uber to the center every time (we have a 6 month old so the walk from the house to the center) was a bit difficult for us. Overall a lovely stay!

ABSOLUTELY LOVE this house. The house was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed. The garden is my favorite space in this house. The garden is just perfect. The owners have been wonderful. We will be staying there again especially because it's perfect for a family. The housekeeper Enrique is very helpful, always available and an all around nice person.
