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. 2 1/2 bathrooms, purified water system/ maid/cable TV/ internet and phone. Sleeps 4 - 7.
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 let you in and take care of everything for you. This is a family house so we are leaving books and personal things for your use.
The neighbourhood is fantastic - within two blocks there are fantastic restaurants (Thai, Lebanese, Mexican, Steak House, German, Sushi, Argentinian and many more); within 2 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.
The neighbourhood is very quiet yet central.
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 - leave it as you found it. We'd prefer you to smoke outside. Check out is midday.
Great location, lots of bright sunshine streaming through the multitude of windows and doors. Views from the upper terrace are spectacular. Simply furnished, but most everything you need for an enjoyable stay. You definitely feel that you are a part of the wonderful ambiance of San Miguel.
The neighborhood was very good for San Miguel. It was the best location we have stayed in for noise and convenience. The house was beautiful inside and out. Very clean. Our only comment was that we didn't read carefully enough and the main floor bedroom only had a full bed which would have been very small if our couple friends had joined us as planned. It did work perfectly for us, as we only had one other guest besides ourselves.
We stayed at Caroline's place for one week and would have stayed longer if it would have been available. Her house shows her great taste and breathes elegance and spaciousness. We liked the way she had furnished and decorated it, simple, with lots of love, detail oriented but comfortable. The downstairs room with the kitchen opening to the court yard was our favorite place to be: preparing food, hanging out or curling up around the fireplace. Weather permitting we spent time on the roof terrace, enjoying the views and the sunsets. Ofeila, the housekeeper keeps the house in great shape and did her job around the house without disturbing us. Too bad we do not speak Spanish (yet) for better understanding each other. The infrastructure of the house worked perfect and we really appreciated the reliable internet connection. A minor inconvenience with the fireplace was resolved with quick response from Caroline and Ofelia. The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood within a short walk from the Jardín and the places to go in the downtown area. It was our first visit to San Miguel de Allende and will for sure not be the last. We will be back and - if available - back in Caroline’s house.

Wow. What a wonderful place to stay. This home is so beautiful and both the indoor and outdoor spaces are stunning. There is so much space in the house, and we also really enjoyed spending time on the terraces. Everything is very clean and perfectly maintained. We always had everything we needed. And the house is very close to the city center and many wonderful shops and restaurants. We definitely hope to stay here again.
I had last-minute changes and could not stay at the house, unfortunately. Although Caroline doesn't live in San Miguel de Allende, she was very responsive and communicating everything accurately.
This is the first time we rent a house and it was a great experience. The house is huge and we want to go back! It is really close to downtown (7 min walking) and it has everything you need. Great price for a great house. We could even see the fireworks from the terrace since we spent there new year´s eve. I highly recommend this house.
The house was spacious, clean and full of light. It also had a great location, central to everything we were visiting. We had a great time staying there.
