About this listing
A light, simply furnished & wonderfully spacious house with a small garden, 5 terraces & a stunning roof terrace from which to enjoy the sunset. 4 blocks from the main square, a tranquil haven on a cobbled street in the heart of San Miguel. Paradise!
Beautiful, light-drenched, open-plan artist's house in centro - just 4 blocks from the main square - surrounded by trees - 5 terraces - gorgeous views of the mountains and the town and the sunset views are spectacular - 2 double bedrooms - plus a huge studio/bedroom (pictured with the desk in the photos) - others have to walk through this room to get to the roof terrace. 2 1/2 bathrooms, purified water system/ maid/cable TV/ internet and phone. Sleeps 4 - 7. Only 4 guests would have a totally private room - the remaining 3 would be sleeping in beautiful but less private spaces.
Casa Carolina is an architect designed house, comfortable, very spacious and very quiet, it is tucked away on a cobbled lane right in the centre of town. The tranquil garden is full of herbs and flowers and humming birds. There is a BBQ on the 40 foot roof terrace which has beautiful views of 3 different churches and of the whole valley and mountains. It's really a delightful place to hang out.
There's Ofelia, the house manager who will welcome you and take care of everything for you. If you'd like her to cook for you, you can arrange that directly with Ofelia. This is a family house so we are leaving books and personal things for your use. Any food and toiletries are for your use too.
The neighbourhood is fantastic - within two blocks there are wonderful restaurants (Thai, Lebanese, Mexican, Steak House, German, Sushi, Argentinian and many more); within 3 blocks there are 2 private cinemas where you can watch cool films for 3 dollars including popcorn and a drink; plenty of yoga studios and art courses, swimming pools with thermal water, hot air ballooning, horse riding - you name it - it's here!
This house is in the centre so everything is walkable but buses pass within 2 blocks, taxis are cheap and plentiful.
Interaction with Guests
I live in London but am on hand via email for any worries or concerns or for help. Ofelia the housekeeper is on hand to help you.
The neighbourhood is called CENTRO - it's very quiet despite its proximity to the main square.
Buses and taxis pass on the main road which is a block away.
Other Things to Note
Please note that the bed in the downstairs bedroom is an old fashioned double - and for some guests used to a king size bed - the atelier sometimes proves more comfy.
Pets are welcome. We'd like guests to behave responsibly - please leave it as you found it. We'd prefer you to smoke outside. Check out is midday but we are flexible - especially if there are no guests arriving the same day as you check out.
Perfect! We were very happy with this beautiful, light and bright house. So close to everything. We made breakfast everyday. The rooftop patio was great after a long day and Caroline and Ofelia were awesome! Caroline is a very good communicator. Thank you so much!
My daughters and I had an absolutely wonderful time in San Miguel de Allende, thanks in no small part to Caroline's lovely and strategically located home. We were in San Miguel for Mexico's Independence Day celebrations, and though there was plenty going on downtown it was delightful to be able to walk a couple of short blocks, turn into the callejon, and have all the noise disappear. The house was a perfect respite. It was also much larger than we had expected; there was plenty of space for both together time and quiet time alone.
Caroline was a great communicator throughout the process and we always felt that if anything came up she would be very quick to respond. Ofelia, the local contact person, was a delight, and I very much enjoyed our conversations when she would come by to check on things. An absolutely wonderful stay!
Muy bonita la casa!!, muy cómoda, la atención muy buena y la recomendaría muchísimo
The house was wonderful! Incredible view from rooftop, great location, Ophelia, who works at the house in an angel! She made a beautiful breakfast for us 2 mornings!! Fresh squeezed juice, eggs, homemade tamales and fresh salsa!! To die for! Caroline was very easy to communicate with and overall it was a perfect week!! I would recommend it to friends and we will come back!:)
We had a lovely recent stay in Caroline's beautiful home in San Miguel De Allende. The home was as advertised- close walk to the centro, quiet street, very comfortable with bright open space. The caretaker of the home, Ofelia, took great care of us from the moment we arrived and even, at our special request, prepared a perfect meal for us on my birthday. We were traveling with young children- a 2 year old and 6 year old. Caroline obtained a crib for us at our request which was also very appreciated. A beautiful home in a lovely town! We hope to return soon.
La Casa esta limpia y muy bonita. Su ubicación es excelente, pues todo esta a 5 min caminando!
Caroline was/is the most welcoming host. She planned for her housekeeper to be at the property to let us in upon our arrival- even though our flight arrived way passed regular check in time. She equipped us with all the important phone numbers, internet access, addresses of all that would make our stay relaxing and safe. Her recommendations of what to see, where to eat, and what to do were invaluable. She was/is always available anytime we had a question. The spacious central home was just as she described. Very clean, all of the amenities one could hope for. The home is walking distance to the most desirable sight seeing spots.Or, if you just want to relax at home there are beautiful views of San Miguel from the roof top terrace. It's lush and charming and very comfortable.
