  • I spent a couple lovely nights at Patricia´s home. Her home is beautiful, artistically decorated. The Hummingbird room is magical - there are constantly hummingbirds at the window, the bed is comfy and there is plenty space for personal items.
    The location is perfect if you don´t mind taking a walk or taxi into town, peaceful street, easy to access transportation.
    Best of all... Patricia´s urban garden where you can sample heirloom tomatoes and harvest lemongrass for an herbal tea.

    She provided everything we need. Led us to many places, met a lot of San Miguel de Allende with her.
    Very comfortable house, full kitchen and low price.
    I strongly recommend staying at the home of Patricia.

  • Patricia is a priceless gem in the world of airbnb hosts.She is warm, welcoming, pleasant,other-centered,a gourmet cook, avid organic gardener, and excellent company.
    Her apartment is spacious, excellently and artistically decorated, and totally peaceful.Most conducive to (website hidden) would be without hesitation or reservation that I would encourage travelers to reward themselves with a stay at Patricia's.This review is based on my seven week stay there.

  • It was an amazing stay thanks to the gracious host Patricia. She knew the ins and outs of the city and was kind enough to show me around. Acclimating was easy after that, what to eat, not to eat. how to and where to shop, to learn spanish, all the contacts and costs for things.
    One of the most important aspects I found was the environment, it was a very relaxing and comforting place. At no time did I feel as a burden or an unwelcomed quest and as most would attest this can either make or make your trip. I feel fortunate and spoiled to have had such a host.

About
I am going into my seventh year in Mexico and during those seven years I have travel extensively –many many visits to Michoacán and Oaxaca and Puerto Vallarta, Melaque (four hours south of Puerto Vallarta), Merida and Cancun. The way I travel is to be able to focus on my main interest in Mexico which is the Folk Art of Mexico. I had two quarters to go to finish a BFA with an emphasis on Ceramic Sculpture and Life Drawing. So I have gone to the areas where Mexican ceramics are most famous, Oaxaca, Michoacán and in the state of Mexico, Metepec. I have never been a weaver but I am passionate about learning and collecting textiles-Huiples and rugs. I also make jewelry and I collect beads on my travels i.e. amber from Chiapas. I stay in simple places to save money and so that I know I will be speaking Spanish and getting tips on finding the artist that I might want to speak to and learn from. I love reading book about artisans and how they make their crafts. In SMA I go to art opening and because there are so many artist here-this is could be a weekly occurrence. Simplicity lets me meet people easily. I am a psychiatric social worker so I like to listen to the stories about the lives of the artist and I enjoy hearing what drives them to do the work they do. SMA offers all kind of music from rock and rolls, blues and jazz to opera and classical music all of which I love. It also has theatre I particularly like the play readers group –they read plays on stage -a very high caliber of acting. And we must forget the Sunday afternoon Poetry group or the Writing conference and Poetry Conference. There is also dance, salsa, tango all kinds of Latin dances… Flamenco –you can learn it here are just go out and dance. Of course another passion is organic gardening-I go to the Tianguis Organica weekly to get the veggies that I don’t have in my own garden. I also enjoy swimming in the local Hotel Aldea pool and going to the hot springs at La Grueta. Oh let’s not forget the food in SMA! I just had the best Chiles en Nogada at the Bugambilia Restaurant, a wonderful dish of a stuffed poblano pepper-stuffed with ground meat and dried fruits with a white walnut sauce with red pomegranate seeds in top –traditionally eaten on Independence Day September 16th. There is also a gluten free restaurant –the Good Food Café that is amazing!
