There are two master suites containing king size beds and fireplaces. The third bedroom has a queen size bed. All bedrooms have their own private bathroom and closet.

This is my third trip in SMA , I stayed in beautiful Boutique Hotels which were costly and Airbnb's that were not as expected , this was the exception ... It felt like a boutique Hotel but with the privacy of your own home . We actually tried a few airbnb 's on this trip and I wished I would have known about this listing when I first booked because we never wanted to leave . Frank and his management team were on top of it all , this was one of the best Airbnb's I have stayed and I have done quite a lot of them around the world . The view is truly magical and everything is in its place . Don't hesitate to rent this little gem , it wont stay vacant for long .

1st time to SMA, and I can tell you that this house is STUNNING! We were met at BJX airport and the driver, Christian took us home and let us in and gave us keys. Each of the 3 bedrooms (easily each bedroom can be a "master bedroom") were BEAUTIFUL. I loved the colonial Spanish decor, each room had lots of attention to detail. Even brick arched bathrooms! This is a four level house. Everything you need is included and Frank the owner is very responsive. (I only called him to THANK HIM, on our arrival and he called back immediately) He has a "staff" including property manager, house keeper (who was very unobtrusive) and transportation manager who was very helpful. The house had stunning views of SMA, on all levels with plenty of places to relax. Our first night was even cold enough to light up the fireplace, which was great! Seriously, every room was decorated beautifully. I actually never wanted to leave the house, but the historic center of SMA cannot be missed. There was only one thing wrong, and it was also addressed in other reviews. It's the incredible amount of noise!! Roosters crowing constantly, accompanied by a symphony of dogs barking all day and night, peacocks and church bells ringing endlessly, music and treefrogs (which we actually did love) and the FIREWORKS that popped off relentlessly. Weekend nights, expect the local neighborhood to gather outside the front of the house and in the adjacent alley, they stayed up until 4am each day. Windows aren't insulated so you can hear their late night conversations from each room, especially the bottom floor level room. Everyone is so friendly in the neighborhood and nice, you just can't go outside to ask them to be quiet. It's their culture and it's sweet. But you MUST bring ear plugs and sleeping pills if you want some sleep. We thought the eternal noise would end after the weekend but it didn't. The noise was so relentless, (church bells going off at 5am!) that we felt tired all day, each day. Lack of good sleep each night made us weary in the day. The saving grace was that this house is gorgeous and the noise is NOT the fault of the owner. I just want to put this in the review for viewers who are looking for a quiet peaceful vacation, this may not be for you. By day 4, watching the evening sunset became a laughing matter, as dogs bellowed around us all evening. I must reiterate, if you want a peaceful and quiet resort, SMA and specifically this house may not be for you. If you want a beautiful villa to stay in and you've got lots of Zanex, then try this house! SMA is beautiful, we loved the historic center and the beautiful rooftop restaurants (try Quince and The Rosewood Hotel!) and the weather this week (May 1-5th) was perfect. 80's in day and cool evenings.

Response from Frank:
I am glad Chris liked the home. They were at the house on a festival weekend. I had been at the house for two weeks before and all was quiet in our neighborhood. The neighborhood is avery high end with 90% of the homes belonging to wealthy Americans, there is also a high end very high rated BNB on our block. There are 2 small homes that belong to local mexican familly. There are some young kids that play in the street that are very cute and kind. Usualy the street becomes very quiet by 9pm. I will say in general San Miguel is a loud festive town. Often festivals, fireworks, chickens, and dogs. Its really part of the charm and atomosphere of our town.

This home is well designed, built, furnished, appointed and the views are magical. Everything in the home is in its place and properly functions. I highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity.

This is a great house, part of a beautifully designed and constructed group of houses. It is located in a hilly area, which provides fantastic views of the SMA Cathedral and historic center! This may make the house's location difficult to access, but there is an alleyway (Callejon de Chepito) which connects with the Cuesta de San Jose. I stayed with my wife and 4 kids from Decemb(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) to January 1, 2017. The description in the Airbnb site was accurate and Frank, the host, is a very nice guy. We communicated during the stay and, prior to arrival, he put us in contact with the property management company. The kitchen was well stocked, with sufficient utensils to be able to prepare meals. The cleaning service was punctual and very good. No complaints there. Guests that have not been to the house before (in my view, it is worthwhile to repeat a stay) should, however, be aware that the house is in an area that, while accessible, combines upscale houses and pre-existing homes, where several Mexican families live. We enjoyed talking to the Mexican neighbors, but on occasion there may be a lot of noise, such as roosters crowing (inevitable perhaps?) and dogs barking, and kids playing and having fun. This gives guests the opportunity to get a closer look at a microcosm of Mexican society in a small city like SMA.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a month at Frank's place. We had a fantastic trip. We loved the accommodations and SMA. Frank's home is well furnished. The kitchen contains the basic necessities one would expect. The beds are very comfortable. The home is cleaned three times a week. Frank, and his property manager, Maribel, were very communicative. They assisted us with transport from the airport and even arranged for a cook to come to the home on our request for several meals (that were excellent). The views were incredible! It is about a mile walk down steep stairs or a rough cobblestone road into town. (Leave the uncomfortable shoes at home.) We did it many times. Back, of course, is a bit more of a challenge. That can be avoided, however, by a $2.50 cab ride. Frank's place is in an area where both expats and local families live. The front door faces an alley that is the "back yard" of many local families. Every day there are children playing in the alley. It's part of Mexico. It's the real Mexico. We enjoyed them. I played with the kids, and even joined them in a baseball game at their local field. We frequently came home to find kids sitting on the step to our local home. One of the boys would come in and hang out where we stayed and played on my tablet. The connection to the kids got us invited to a posada the night before we left and the celebration they had on December 12 (for the Virgin of Guadalupe) -- both in the alley behind where we stayed. We had some fantastic homemade Mexican food and drank tequila with our neighbors. We embraced the local culture and recognized we were guests. It made the trip that much more enjoyable. While the local connection was great, there those considering Frank's place should know there is a lot of noise that emanates from all the activity in the alley. The intersection of the alley and the stairs that lead into town is right at the corner of the home. It's a gathering point as well. We used earplugs at night. Roosters and barking dogs are the soundtrack of the area. Fireworks (a common means of celebrating about anything in SMA) were shot off in the alley into the night. But, it's not easy to avoid such things in SMA. And if you do, you aren't experiencing the culture. If serenity, quiet, and isolation are what you are looking for, this isn't the place for you. In fact, SMA may not be the place for you. But if you want to interact with and have the opportunity to become a part of a Mexican neighborhood, and still be able to escape into a very comfortable home with an amazing view overlooking the City, this is your place.

Maribel Felix, the property manager, was extremely responsive to all of my questions. She arranged our transportation needs and followed up to insure I was happy....that is over and above as far as I am concerned.

I live on the northshore of Kauai and enjoy traveling to my home in San Miguel de Alllende and my original home of Boulder Colorado. There is nothing so special as waking up in San Miguel to the church bells. Sitting on the terrace outside my bedroom drinking coffee as I look down and across the beautiful town. Aloha
