Downtown hideaway, one block from El Jardin, El Mercado and La Biblioteca, rooftop terrace with stunning, panoramic, sunset views.
Cosy, downtown, newly-renovated, one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bathroom apartment with a great location. This second- and third-floor hideaway with an inviting rooftop lookout sleeps two guests and is on Calle Mesones, San Miguel's main shopping street. This apartment's next door to gourmet grocer Bonanza, and equidistant from the main square, the main market and the main library. Really, you couldn't live in a more central location in El Centro Historico.
The third-floor, rooftop terrace is a unanimous favourite among guests and where many choose to spend the majority of their time: reading the Attencion over breakfast, lunching al fresco, catching up on emails via the WIFI and enjoying margaritas by sunset. The towering steeples of el centro historico rise from the shadows of the rooftops and loom in the foreground in front of a fiery, multicolour horizon.
The bright, third-floor bedroom's set back from the street for added privacy and has a queen-sized bed and a full bathroom.
The second floor features a spacious, open-concept living room with a with a gas fireplace, a large dining room for four guests. A arched service window opens onto the kitchen's tile countertops, a double sink and new appliances, including a gas stove, oven, fridge and washing machine. The second floor also has a a half-bathroom for visitors.
Guests of Casita Marilu will enjoy the action, convenience and authenticity of being on Mesones. Living on this central commercial strip provides a unique slice of “real-life” San Miguel-- part of the bustling market district where many locals come to shop.
Pese a ser un espacio amplio y agradable, la casita estaba sucia a nuestra llegada: había mucho polvo en el piso, la estufa tenía cochambre, las almohadas estaban impregnadas de humedad. Sin duda la ubicación es excelente, pero fallaron en los detalles. Sagrario, la persona que nos recibió. nos regañó llegando porque supuestamente nuestra reservación era desde el día previo a nuestra llegada, lo cual era falso.
Angelica's house was absolutely amazing and we highly recommend staying here. It's right in the middle of town and close to all the shops and cafés.
We only wish we had more time here!
Angelica was a thoughtful host. She was out of town during our stay, but was available by email both before our arrival and during our stay. Her mother works nearby and was available to help. There were some unusually heavy rains during our stay that caused some minor leaks in the apartment, but Angelica sent two maids the next day to clean. Unfortunately, the internet malfunctioned due to the storm and could not be repaired during our stay.
The listing was accurately described. You will not be disappointed. My wife comments that it was cozy, clean and a great location. Be aware that the front door opens to a flight of stairs extending up two stories. I mention this because it could be a problem for the elderly or infirm. The first level (second story relative to the street) is an open floor plan consisting of a kitchen, dining room and living room. From here, the stairs continue up to the apartment's second story, where the bedroom, 2nd bathroom and terrace are.
There is a small fruit and veg store right next door, a great taco stand on the same block and many restaurants within a 500 meter radius.
Casita Marilu, una excelente opción en San Miguel. Se encuentra en pleno centro a tan solo cuadra y media del jardin principal del puablito.
Super cómoda y limpia, con una decoracion acorde al pueblito, tienes la ventaja de encontrarte en el corazón de San Miguel, caminar por sus hermosas calles, bastantes opciones de lindos y ricos restaurantes además de galerias y tiendas para comprar algún lindo recuerdo.
la vista de la terraza esta genial y un café ahi es algo que tienes que probar.
Our 4 night stay at Casita Marilu was perfect! We were in an outstanding location in the middle of San Miguel de Allende, steps away from everything this magical town has to offer.
The apartment is very spacious, well maintained and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and has an outstanding view. Every morning we would eat our breakfast on the terrace, loving the town atmosphere. The days we spent in San Miguel happened to be during Holy Week so there were many festivities going on all around town. As it turned out, our terrace was the perfect place to watch many of these celebrations.
Angelica was very easy to communicate with and provided us with all the information we needed regarding our stay.
We will definitely return to Casita Marilu!!
Casita Marilu is a lovely place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. Angelica was very helpful and answered all of my questions.
It is so convenient to walk to grocery stores, market, Jardin, theater, and movies. I enjoy walking and walked to El Charco Ingenio, Mega, Soriana/Liverpool Mall, Tuesday Market, and Fabrica Aurora. Bus stops are just a block away to go exploring and enjoy the hot springs.
I had a wonderful stay at Casita Marilu :-)
We stayed at Mesones 49B for nearly two months and thoroughly enjoyed it. Angelica was most helpful, along with her hands-on assistant Lali. The house is central, on a street filled with shops and food outlets. You never have to go far for anything. Accessing the house involves a staircase, but on the upper floor it is traditional-type architecture and on the top floor the bedroom is very comfortable, with access to a lovely open deck. There's no hot-water tap in the bathroom basin, and no bath, but both are common features. In the cold weather we experienced, we were able to run the gas fire and the gas stove to keep us warm. Stroll out to the Jardin any time, or wander up to the Allende square, or round to the Biblioteka. You are always surrounded by lovely architecture. Overall, a highly recommended residence in a prime spot.
