Let our Casa be your Casa.
Our home for rent in San Miguel is only blocks away from La Parroquia and the Jardin. Importantly, the four blocks are not straight up a sharp hill! We have had guests of all ages (1-76) stay and they all found the walk easy. Even better, this close proximity is yours without having to endure the noisy night activity often found in the Centro. Our home, as can be seen on the attached map, is on a short one-way alley off of Umaran with only 5 residences. That means the street gets little traffic and noise but is close to everything and safe.
The home is perfect for couples due to the romantic master suite and sweeping views of San Miguel. We recently completed a remodel of the master bath to add a glass-enclosed soaking tub allowing you to soak while sipping wine (or tequila!) and gazing at the stars. The house is also perfect for families due to the many separate sleeping areas and bathroom facilities, and laundry.
It is an extremely comfortable three-story home broken down as follows--
Roof level: Master suite with full bath and tub and spectacular terrace for outdoor living. Fully furnished bedroom with boveda (arched brick ceiling), 22" flat panel TV, DVD player and DISH satellite TV w/HBO, double bed, nightstands, alarm clock/ipod dock. Romantic gas fireplace. Outdoor table with seating for 4, along with Zero Gravity lounger.
Second Floor: Bedroom, sleeping den, and Full bath. Bedroom with double bed adjoins to full bath and has a gas fireplace. Sleeping den has bunk bed with double bed on bottom and twin on top. Desk and chair.
Main Floor: Large gas Fireplace, Couch, Two Armchairs, Dining Table with seating for 4, Laundry, Stocked Kitchen with built-in gas stove and oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, blender, toaster, coffeemaker, 42" Flat-Panel TV, DISH satellite TV, CD stereo, IPOD dock, region-free DVD player, and 1/2 Bath.
Connecting all floors is truly the most unique stairway you will see in San Miguel. Saltillo and talavera tiles and arches throughout add traditional charm.
Amenities: DISH satellite TV; WIFI throught house if you need to work, write, or surf; Local telephone; Magic Jack with unlimited US and Canada calls; Full Washer and Dryer; (Kids) Games. All linens, including plush towels. There is also a high chair and crib/playpen available on request. Most everything is new!
Fall 2013: We have just completed a full kitchen remodel and it is gorgeous! New stainless steel dishwasher, gas cooktop, built-in oven, and refrigerator. Granite counters, ornate tile backsplash, blue stained cabinets with Moroccan details. You will be more than pleased. We have added pictures but, alas, they do not do the house justice! Feel free to ask any questions if you want further information as to details.
This is a second home for us, hence, we can keep the cost reasonable yet still offer amazing location and comfort. If you decide to rent our home away from home, please let us know what we can do to make your stay more enjoyable or relaxing. We have an amazing housekeeper who can stock the refrigerator, provide more extensive cleaning during your stay, or babysit, upon advance request (for a fee).
We have an oustanding crew, including house manager and housekeeper, ready to greet you and make your stay unforgettable. We look forward to hosting you!

UPDATE: There (email hidden) webcam setup in the Jardin for those who are interested in seeing the goings-on in the main square, El Jardin. The camera is actually facing the street that leads down to our house:
We have tried to provide some comforts in the home that required a significant investment. Thus, we hope our guests are prepared to treat the furnishings and amenities with the respect and care they would treat their own and there is no smoking. A copy of a passport or ID will be made upon check-in and destroyed upon check-out. Also, we do not permit SUBLETTING. Thanks much!
Other than that, there are no rules! Enjoy our home and enjoy San Miguel!
For those who are scheduled to arrive after 10:00pm, there will be a surcharge of $20 as the house manager has children and to ask her to be available late is exceptional. Thanks for your understanding.
GUEST REFUND POLICY:
Given recent experience, we have to change our cancellation to STRICT. We hate to do it but feel it is necessary to prevent abuse of the policy; especially during the high seasons. Sorry! Thanks for your understanding.
Everything in the description was accurately represented. Petrus was the perfect host and was quickly available to us on an as needed basis. The Casa was situated four blocks from the Jardine which was close enough for us to get there easily but far enough away to be able to disengage from the late night festivities. The set up was perfect for us four friends with enough privacy if necessary but we were able to spend good quality time having tons of fun. This place was perfect for us in every way!
The hospitality that comes with La Casa Nuestra began even before we left home. Petrus called me and we spoke for nearly 45 minutes about the house, the area, and details that were invaluable, especially when travelling with kids. We arrived in SM and were blown away by the home, the view, the location. It was gorgeous and well maintained. Our family of 6 was comfortable and the kids had room to spread out while we relaxed, cooked, and enjoyed sipping mescal. Nearly everything we needed was steps from our door - shopping - both food and wonderful boutiques, fabulous and diverse restaurants, a pharmacy, the center of town, and cultural sites and events. We hailed taxis a few times to get to a water park for the kids that Petrus told us about and to visit the botanical gardens, another of his suggestions. We can't wait to go back and we hope La Casa Nuestra will be available - it was perfect in every way.
This house is fun and lovely with excellent beds-very comfortable!
There's also more natural light on the first floor than many of the casas in San Miguel.
We had some issues with the master shower at first but Petrus was a great host, very attentive and working hard to make everything good for us.
And the location can't be beat!
We greatly enjoyed our stay at La Casa Nuestra. Petrus could not have been more helpful or more concerned about the quality of our experience in the house itself and in San Miguel in general. The house is extremely comfortable and very attractive. For Petrus and his family the house has been a labour of love and that clearly shows. The location is excellent - a short walk from the Jardin and in the midst of all that San Miguel has to offer. Highly recommended!
A perfect place to stay in SMA. We are two adults and two kids (7 and 4). The flat was just right for us with space for a couple more easily. The fireplaces were so great and we put them to use each cold evening or morning and the warmed the house quickly and cozily. The beds are comfy, the kitchen was well appointed and the hosts, Petrus and Onika are by far the most helpful and considerate hosts we've encountered on airbnb. Petrus set us up with a map marked with all his family's favorite places in the city, all very nearby- restaurants, parks, liquor stores, chocolate shops, hot springs, etc. He arranged our shuttle from the airport and back. He checked in with us well before our trip to make sure we felt prepared and had all the info we needed from him. An easy, dreamy stay with these airbnb hosts. Location is great- quiet and still close and easily walkable for us and the two kids, no problem.
We had a great stay at Casa Nuestra which was very conveniently located to Centro and even better in reality than in the photos shown on airbnb. Petrus was very helpful in getting us situated with info about places to eat and shop and even helping us book the transfer to San Miguel de Allende from Leon airport. We felt very much at home with cosy fireplaces on every floor which were beautiful decorated, landlines available to both local Mexican landlines and a MajicJack phone to be able to call back to the US if we needed. Petrus was always quickly responsive to any questions and needs that we had there and very enthusiastic that we enjoyed our stay as much as possible. Thank you Petrus and Onika for helping to make the most of our time in your beautiful house and city. I highly recommend anybody to stay here on their visit to SMA!
