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.

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.
The house is just amazing! It is in perfect conditions, clean, cozy, and taken care of in every detail.
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute!

The house is a green courtyard dream, the small but deep pool refreshing, impeccable bedrooms and grand living room. Location is perfect, all of San Miguel can be discovered on foot. We felt very much at home.
