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.
Making the reservation was very easy. Close to our travel time, Petrus contacted us and let us know what to expect and gave us some information about San Miguel in general, which made our stay easier.
We were met at the property by the caretaker when we arrived and she gave us a run down of the house and where things were located.
The property is in easy walking distance to El Jardin and to many shops and restaurants in general. It is a comfortable three story house with a bedroom, roof terrace and bath on the top floor. The terrace is a wonderful place to sit and relax. The bath has an outside view but is still private and is a great way to begin (or end) a busy day.
The beds were comfortable and the weather was great for sleeping.
Another feature that we really appreciated was the availability of a washer and dryer in the house. This made things much easier for us, not having to rely on a trip to la lavandaria.
There was some minor excitement when a float valve on the rooftop water tank stuck and there was a little water leakage over the outside wall, but on alerting the house keeper and Petrus, a handyman came out the next morning and fixed it quickly. I should mention there was no danger of running out of water, the tank was still full.
We also had a cat visit us unexpectedly, dropping down the back stairwell, apparently. The cat appeared to be uninjured and opening the front door was the quick and easy solution there.
All in all, we had a very positive experience with our first Air BNB usage.
We had a great stay at La Casa Nuestra. Onika & Petrus were wonderful to work with! Loved staying there - great location, beautiful views from the terrace & a quiet setting made for a perfect trip. Thank you!
Great place! Very clean and close to the town center. IT is a very, very safe area. Nice outdoor patio.
Petrus was an amazing host and the house is wonderful; charming, spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean with all the creature comforts you might want. And it is in a great location.
We will return!
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!
We have had a great time at La Casa Nuestra.
Petrus could not have been more accomodating and helpful. all our questions where given swift attention. The house is in a perfect location with easy walking access to downtown San Miguel.
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.
