The Space

This beautiful 400 year old colonial home is on one of the best streets in the historic center of San Miguel de Allende, just 1.5 blocks from the "Jardin" or main square.

The house includes 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms:

The master bedroom in on the ground floor and has a king size bed and a fireplace. The master bathroom is en-suite and includes double sinks and separate tub and shower.

The guest bedrooms and bath are on the second floor. One has a queen size bed and a lovely balcony overlooking the front patio. The other has two twin beds, a desk, a balcony and a tree-lined private terrace with two lounge chairs.

The guest bath has double sinks, a large tub/shower combination, a toilet and a bidet.

There is a central stereo system with speakers in the main entertaining areas. Just plug in your iPod or MP3 player and you are all set.

The house has a living room and dining room each with a fireplace. There is also a morning room off the kitchen. The third bathroom is located just off the morning room and very close to the pool. This bath also includes a shower.

The kitchen is very well appointed and has a large commercial range.

There is an outdoor "sala" (living room), an outdoor kitchen with gas grill and an outdoor dining area.

The house has a heated pool located in a very private and sunny patio just a few steps away from the outdoor kitchen and dining area. This area is perfect for year-round outdoor entertaining.

The roof terrace has spectacular views of San Miguel and the mountains beyond.

The house is staffed with a maid 6 days a week and a part time pool/garden man. In addition to keeping the house clean, the maid can cook one meal a day. Groceries are not included but she will do the shopping for you if you would like.

Interaction with Guests

We are not normally in San Miguel when our house is rented, so our interaction will be minimal. Our office is on site so manager is in and out and always available to answer questions. We are always available by email, should a guest need additional help.

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 and charged accordingly. Please let us know before you arrive if you would like it heated for your arrival. Otherwise, you can coordinate it with the house staff.

Check-in is between 3 and 5pm. If you need to check-in later than that, we can arrange for someone to meet you. We only ask that you tip the person meeting you $20 US Dollars or $250 Pesos.

  • This house is even more beautiful than the pictures. We felt as if we were staying with friends who had a magnificent home and great taste in decorating.
    Rob was great to deal with. His prompt emails provided answers to questions and even made suggestions for things we hadn't considered.
    Anna is wonderful asset to the property; kept the house tidy and made some nice meals for us.
    We hope to stay again and would recommend this property for both comfort and location.

  • Both the house and all communication with Rob couldn't have been better. The house is exactly as described. It's about a 5 minute walk from the Jardin, so right in the middle of the action.
    It's very obvious the thought that went in to the meticulous remodel and decorating of the house. We enjoyed all the different indoor and outdoor rooms, including lounging by the pool in the sun in the afternoons, and cozying up by the fire in the evenings indoors. The house was immaculate, and stayed that way during our stay by the housekeeper, Ana.
    Instructions on how everything worked were really clear, which I particularly appreciated. Rob was really proactive about checking in before the stay, including getting our grocery list so the house would be stocked before we arrived, and answered any question promptly.
    If you want a really special place to stay in San Miguel de Allende, stay at Rob's house!

  • A dream of a place, cosy and very, very comfortable, with the soothing sound of water fountains on the terrace and in the entrance hallway. We highly appreciated the owners´ taste in furnishing and decorations. Everything is walking distance and San Miguel is a Mexican treasure.

  • I've stayed in over 10 airbnb rentals and have never had as much luck as with Rob's San Miguel de Allente colonial house. It is beautifully preserved, and is located one block from the center of town. Ignacio, the property manager, was extremely helpful in getting us situated and explaining how everything works. Highly recommended.

I am an architect who has lived and worked in Mexico for the last 20 years. I enjoy travel all over the world, and normally rent houses almost where ever I go. My favorite destinations are Buenos Aires and Spain. I also enjoy food, wine and entertaining.
