Other Things to Note
It is the custom in San Miguel de Allende to tip the maid 5% of the total rental amount a guest pays. Just as you would do in a restaurant, you can adjust this based on the service you receive.
The pool can be heated, but it is an extra $175 US Dollars per week to cover the cost of the gas. You can decide to heat it only certain days, and the rate will be prorated at $25 US Dollars per day and charged accordingly. Please let us know before you arrive if you would like it heated for your arrival. Otherwise, you can coordinate with the house staff.
Check-in is between 3 and 5pm. If you need to check-in later, we can arrange to have someone to meet you. If you need to check out before 9am, we would need to arrange to have someone meet you at the house to get the keys, lock up, and set the alarm. Whether it is a late check-in or early check-out, we ask that you tip the person meeting you $20 US Dollars or $250 Pesos.
While we allow pets, we do need to approve their size and number. We charge an additional pet deposit and renters are responsible for any damage caused by their animals.
Smoking is only allowed in the outdoor entertaining areas. Please do not smoke inside the house.

Muy buena experiencia, La casa es muy acogedora y el servicio de las personas a cargo espectacular, sin duda cada vez que visite San Miguel trataré de hospedarme en esta casa. Gracias Rob.
The place was gorgeous and the staff extremely helpful/friendly. I went and stayed with 5 friends of mine and we all could not have asked for a better place to crash. Quiet at night yet close to the center. Great sun area and the pool does the job (definitely get it heated!). All in all, a very successful stay
Rob was very helpful in making last minute accommodations and helping figure out logistics for our group. We have a very pleasant experience. The property was beautiful and exactly as pictured. Our expectations were met and more. We highly recommend staying here and would like to thank Rob again for his help
Rob has one of the most beautiful houses in San Miguel hands down. It is a very private and yet open house that could not have been better four our stay. The house is spacious and really well design and maintained, service is great (Isabela know how to cook really nice, she will take care of you!). Two blocks down from the main church makes this place a jewel in San Miguel.
Excelente ubicacion, limpieza y servicio. Staff muy bueno y estilo de casa muy agradable.
This house is a true gem. The location is very convenient (only a few blocks from the center of town), the decor is beautiful and the staff is welcoming and helpful. Rob was easy to communicate with and he was happy to accommodate our special requests. It is very evident that no detail went unnoticed in decorating the home. We were very glad that we chose this rental and every member of our group said they would happily return again. It is the perfect house for a relaxing vacation no matter the season - we only wish we had been able to stay longer!
I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for the perfect accommodation in a great location at a reasonable price.
