OVERVIEW of your perfect home away from home:
THIS SMALL APARTMENT is A BRAND NEW (DEC 2013) DESIGNER LOFT-LIKE SPACE IN CENTRO within walking distance to everything. This gorgeous white and wood, modern-rustic apartment is a wonderful alternative to pricey boutique hotel rooms. Located in an EXCELLENT location, the apartment is a 5 minute walk from the JARDIN, where many of the historic monuments in San Miguel, including the world famous Parroquia, are located. An array of good restaurants, cafes and shopping are also located within a few blocks. Hotels within a stone's throw of this special apartment start at $350 USD per night. At the LOFT, you have complete privacy in a thoughtfully designed, lovely space.
LOFT 1 has a new, designer ivory colored polished concrete kitchen. You will find a fridge, counter top stove, nice pottery, drinking/wine glasses, coffee mugs, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, and all the cooking utensils you will need for your stay - including pots, pans. The kitchen is always stocked with the most divine sea salt (hand carried from the ocean in Ixtapa), Chiapas coffee + key Mexican spices. Industrial chef's faucet and industrial lighting lends a warm and elegant feeling to the space. There is as a nice counter for eating or hooking up your computer as well.
The living area/bedroom is a loft style room with a new matrimonial sized bed and fold out suede sofa bed, down duvet(s), Belgian linen duvet cover, crisp and soft cotton sheets and wonderfully comfortable medium/firm mattress. You will also enjoy a flat screen HD TV with 175+ channels (including US channels) (website hidden)3 speakers can be hooked up to your music device. A custom ivory sofa and colonial wooden coffee table are perfect for relaxing and reading. This room is outfitted with gorgeous modern lighting and an excellent space heater for chilly nights. A window allows sunlight to stream in during the day.
Off of the bedroom is the bathroom which has a new, ivory colored polished concrete rain shower, designer Turkish towels, brand new toilet and lovely rustic wooden sink from India. A brushed nickel sink faucet adds simplicity and style. The water pressure is extremely strong and hot.
This apartment is one of two identical apartments in this two story building. If you are traveling with another couple, friends or want a separate space for your kids, you may wish to rent the entire building and have the amount of privacy you each require.
ROOF TOP DECK:
A few steps up the common staircase, you arrive at the rooftop deck where the sunset views over the Sierra Madre mountain range are unobstructed. Lounge in a lounge chair, roll out a yoga mat, or have your morning coffee overlooking hilltops with small pastel colored houses dotting them. A relaxing and private spot. Flowering plants add a lovely touch of green.
WHY LOFT 2 is DIFFERENT THAN OTHER APARTMENTS OR RENTALS IN SAN MIGUEL?
SAFETY: On a safe block in the heart of Centro Historico. Friendly neighbors. Inside doors lock and are made from steel. Bedroom door locks for extra security. Totally safe for single female travelers. Walk to and from safely. The LOCATION IS EXCELLENT.
WARMTH: Houses and larger apartments can be very cold in the winter in San Miguel as the evening temperatures drop into the 30's and 40's. LOFT 2 is a perfect small size that heats quickly with an efficient heater and natural sunlight throughout. Beware of larger rentals that are difficult to heat!
STYLE: Simple, non-cluttered, stylish, comfortable space is unique to San Miguel design-wise.
LOCATION: Walk everywhere! You can not beat this location! Plenty of safe street parking at all times of day or night. One way street that does not allow buses and trucks makes for quiet.
This apartment is a totally unique concept for San Miguel. It's a way to stay in a designer suite with the ability to cook and have peace and quiet. It is the BEST alternative to the expensive hotels in the area. It's simply a peaceful retreat in the heart of San Miguel. Perfect for a couple or a solo traveler.
Interaction with Guests
Our local Guest Services Manager checks guests in and out and is available at all times for needs of guests.
It's the perfect location for discovering San Miguel by foot. It's also very safe, very quiet at night, has a neighborhood feel, lovely architecture and the traditional pastel colors of Centro.
Walking is the best option because you are very close to everything. However, taxis are readily available on the street for 30 pesos (a flat rate anywhere in town.)
No Smoking, no parties, no loud noise. This is a quiet building.
The apartment is in an excellent spot, and sooo close to downtown! It's really cozy and perfect for a couple. Other than the water taking a while to heat up, the toilet paper roll being hard to replace and the locks being a bit stuck (loft door and room door), everything works perfectly! The shower head is heaven!
I don't think the description mentioned it -and I had wondered-, but the loft features a mini fridge which was perfect for our stay.
We will definitely try to book this loft when visiting San Miguel again!
Thank you so much Lisa, it was a very Happy New Years indeed!
Its a very comfortable house , very near of everything :) we had a very nice stay . Lisa was great a very nice .
In San Miguel de Allende Location is very important and Loft 2 is located on an excellent spot very close to the city center.
Lisa was very nice and very helpful with everything.
Lisa IS one of the nicest hosts I've met. She received my gf and me in the shortest notice and even have us recommendations for the best día de muertos parties in San Miguel. The apartment has a great location and a Nice decoration. The Only downsides are that the mattres is pretty hard so you have to be into that and the extra charges which can bring up the price a Little bit. I'd recommend the place if you don't have problems with hard matresses!
Dear Mau, I am sorry that the mattress is not to your liking. We haver had other guests say that it's the best mattress they have ever slept on, because it is a high quality medium/firm ... so I guess it comes down to personal preference. Thanks for your other nice comments! Best regards, Lisa
Al departamento es muy bonito, céntrico y muy cerca del jardín. Lisa es muy buena anfitriona, siempre preocupada de que todo esté bien y que los huéspedes estén agusto. Definitivamente lo recomendaría!
The loft is comfortable and clean, it has everything you need, it is a bit smaller than it looks in the pictures. We took our baby travel crib and we could barely place it in the bedroom. At night we were very hot and there is no aircon nor fan. Lisa is an excellent host and I think if we had asked she would have given us a fan! We had a great time, and the sunsets and roof terrace are amazing.
Hola Daniel, thank you for your review! We haven't had anyone with a baby crib yet, so I appreciate knowing the bedroom is too small for a crib and can tell future guests with babies. Thank you for this feedback. Also, yes! It is getting unusually hot here way earlier in the season. Thus, we are installing new fans in the Lofts TODAY so it should be nice and cool at night. Glad you enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets from the roof and that you had a great time. Best to you! Lisa

About the Host, Lisa
I am a traveler at heart and have settled (for now) in San Miguel De Allende after working in nearby villages with leather Artisans. I have been a fashion designer and worked in different cultures to preserve hand-crafting and support skilled people. My eyes are peeled for new discoveries. Keeping it simple and living with beauty and inspiration is what I look forward to each day. I am a regular meditator, a decent cook, have a dog named Tickles, and love to spend peaceful time in nature. The beach and the mountains are my refuge. I am originally from Chicago.
As far as hosting goes:
I really want happy travelers! My philosophy is that being as communicative and descriptive as possible is the most fair way to enter into a booking. I also like to leave some snacks for guests when they arrive. Providing local insider tips is really helpful for visitors. I also try to respond to questions ASAP from guests. Also, a great mattress, luxury linens, and clean, cozy place are key.
My favorite travel destinations are:
I am looking forward to visiting:
That's a little bit about me. Hope it's helpful!
