We recommend Lit's Airbnb to all who want to visit San Miguel de Allende. It is a warm and comfortable home with excellent to the central part of the city. Everything is walkable. This was one of the most exceptional Airbnb stays that I have had over the last few years.

Lita is a welcoming host and a very seasoned traveler herself. The accommodations were as-advertised. Her residence is located on a street, but is really more of an alley as it is not a thru street. This means having the advantage of peace and quiet, while being a stones throw away from being in the thick of things. Two precious little dogs greeted me on arrival. Lita was gracious enough to provide a nice start to the day with coffee, fruit and a croissant, while visiting with me, a solo traveler in this instance, for a glass of wine with cheese a couple afternoons. Finally, no one knows the area better and her restaurant recommendations I found to be spot-on. If I return to San Miguel, I would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Lita's home is exquisite. It exudes Mexican charm with its warm decor, layout, and artwork from San Miguel and Lita's travels abroad. The moment I set foot in the house I felt a part of an authentic Mexican experience enhanced by Lita's own wonderful hospitality. Each morning she had a delicious breakfast ready, a great start to the day's excursions. Her outside patios are a perfect setting for contemplative moments. Lita herself has an inviting presence with many memorable stories from her life in San Miguel and travels around the world. I know travelers have multiple choices on lodging at commercial locations. Lita offers an authentic experience that a hotel's synthetic rooms simply cannot approach. I highly recommend her exceptional home. It will add incomparable charm to your travels to this magical city.

Lita was extremely accessible. She was very welcoming, and made us feel very at home from the moment we stepped in the door. The location was great, close to the plaza and many restaurants. We used a cab only once to go to a restaurant on the outskirts of town. She hooked us up with tour people that were great. We want on a tour to Guanajuato, and had a great day. Beautiful place with a lovely host.

Lita is a very kind person, she is generous at every turn and welcomes you as an honored guest. My friend and I were invited to join Lita and her friends on a few occassions. She was incredibly inclusive and helpful. I would recommend a stay in her home without reservation. You will walk away feeling like you have made a true connection. Really adore this woman!

I love to travel and because I'm retired from the airlines, get to do it frequently. I'm a former Flamenco dancer but am now obsessed with Tango and travel to Buenos Aires at least once a year to dance. I entertain frequently and like nothing more than providing mulit-course meals for my many friends.
