About this listing
Casa Christina is an authentic experience of real Mexico, San Miguel de Allende style. Set in the quiet district of San Antonio, it is only 2 blocks from the world famous Instituto which offers a wide range of Spanish and art classes. The Jardin at the center of town, is an easy 15 minute walk.
Stepping into Casa Christina’s walled-courtyard with its pre-Columbian sculptures in the fountain, immediately sets the relaxed pace of your visit. The spacious 3200 square foot house sits on a large lot and is furnished with antiques and the beautiful art collection of Robert Somerlot, a well known author who lived in San Miguel for 35 years. The living room is graced with 18th century carved chapel doors from a historical hacienda in the local area.
MAID & GARDEN SERVICE are included five days a week. We now have a breakfast option. Maria will prepare and serve breakfast for up to 4 people for $25 a week and for 5 to 8 people for $35 a week extra. You provide the groceries. She can also cook dinners for 200 pesos (she can shop for the food if you give her the pesos) or 300 pesos if she stays and serves the meal. The fountain courtyard or lower garden are ideal for outdoor meals.
The second story terrace is shared by the 2 upstairs bedrooms and has a view of the countryside. The rooftop garden with its incredible close-up view of San Antonio Church, is a wonderful place to enjoy the sunset, practice yoga or relax in a lounge chair with a good book.
Each of the 3 bedrooms has its own attached bath. The Master Suite and Lower Bedroom Suite have King-sized beds and a twin bed in thier sitting rooms. The third Bedroom has a Queen-sized bed. The Lower Bedroom Suite has a separate entrance and kitchenette.

We offer an optional breakfast for $25 a week for up to 4 people and $35 a week for more than 4 (you purchase the food and Maria cooks and serves).
Great location, great housekeeper,great house. Wi-Fi might need to be upgraded. If you are bringing an auto with a rear wheel drive be careful. Getting into the area is difficult as there is an old non drive-able being stored.
Otherwise great stay! We are very happy and would recommend Casa Christina to all our friends.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. We have removed our friends car from the parking area, so this is an improvement. I plan to increase the Internet speed next November when Christina and I come down to the Casa. thanks for your input which helps us create a wonderful experience for our guests.
Todo muy bien, buena ubicacion, la casa en perfecto estado y justo lo necesitabamos para ese fin de semana. Muchas gracias
We had such a delightful time while we stayed at Casa Christina. The house is spacious and beautiful and Maria was very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts that she cooked for us! everything was as advertised (except that there was no water in the fountain while we were there). The few issues that we had were resolved quickly. The restaurant suggestions in the house guide manual were very helpful for us as well. Thank you for a great time.
Beautiful property. We had an amazing time and Maria was simply the best. Thank you for letting us stay at your house.
Craig was an excellent host, responded quickly to all questions and was very helpful. Casa Christina is a beautiful home with gorgeous terraces and views, the location is perfect. The rooms were very comfortable and Maria cooks up a delicious breakfast. Its the perfect place to stay. Thank you so much!
Although Craig doesn't live in San Miguel de Allende, he was very responsive and communicating everything accurately. He has someone in town to manage the property who checks you in and provides all instructions. There is also someone that comes in every morning to clean the house and cook breakfast if you ask her to.
The house is beautiful and has great pieces of art. The decoration is impressive and you really get the feeling of a traditional Mexican house. It is about 8 blocks from the main center plaza, still walking distance to main places. Has a beautiful church a couple of yards away.
Casa Christina was the absolutely perfect home base for our lovely visit to San Miguel de Allende. The house is artistic yet also comfortable, and the three generous and separate bedrooms creates th chance for both privacy and togetherness. We also loved the outdoor areas, especially the rooftop terrace, which was warm and sunny, even in December. The location is also great, an easy walk to the center of town yet on a quiet street. Craig was very prompt and helpful with his communications and everything went very smoothly upon our arrival. I can't imagine visiting SMdA and staying anywhere else!
