About this listing
The artist studio is a large bedroom with an Italian custom-designed king bed, it's own bathroom and gas fireplace with sitting area. It is located on the second floor with the rooftop veranda viewing area just above. There is a 2 night minimum.
One of three bedrooms in a beautiful hacienda in the central district of San Miguel de Allende, within a 10 to 15 minute walk from all the amenities of the city: restaurants, theaters, art institutes, movies, galleries, shopping, and the central square, the charming Jardin, the center of everything-the very heart of the city. One can rent the entire home during part of the year on a weekly or monthly basis. We also rent the three unique bedrooms on a nightly and weekly basis. There is a three (3) night minimum.
Guests have access to the whole hacienda - indoor and outdoor living rooms, dining areas, verandas on two levels, and entertainment center. The home is quite large with lots of places for privacy or camaraderie, whatever you desire.
Interaction with Guests

A great Mexican neighborhood that is well lit and very safe. There are a few expats and others from the US, Canada, and Europe who live here and there in the area. It is close to everything.
Walking 10 to 15 minutes to everything or there are taxis to take you anywhere in town for 30 pesos. Getting there from the airport is usually best arranged in advance by contacting Bajiogo at "(email hidden)" or contact us for more information.
Absolutely NO SMOKING ! No pets and the home is not the best place for small children.
The house was lovely! Exactly as shown in the pictures. It was really spacious, and less than ten minutes to the jardin. The studio itself was HUGE, with a great big walk-in closet. The courtyard was a real treat, and we enjoyed listening to the birdies singing to us each day.
Casa de Silbador was wonderful! The room was gorgeous, and the view from the private rooftop terrace was spectacular. The house is a fairly quick walk to the center of town, yet the area is still quiet. Michael and Annika were great hosts; they provided suggestions for restaurants, etc., answered any questions we had, and made us feel very welcome. Though the Artist's Studio is one room in the house, it still felt very private. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!
Michael and Annika's house is a 5 STAR hotel and they are 5 STAR guests!
The photos are very accurate, and "downtown" is about 4 short blocks away.
This was our second stay at Casa de Silbador and it was just as enjoyable as the first visit. The home is beautiful, very comfortable with a peaceful central courtyard and fountain. The hacienda style home is a short walk to the jardin or central part of town.
Our long weekend at Casa de Silbador was relaxing and most enjoyable. The home exceeded our expectations and is only a short walk or taxi ride to the Zocalo or town square. If you are seeking a stay in an beautiful and tranquil Mexican style hacienda this is THE place to go. We cannot wait to return.
We weren't able to meet Michael and Annika during our weekend stay in San Miguel. However, they did everything possible to accommodate us, even while out of town. Their home is lovely and very comfortable. We enjoyed the roof deck, the TV room, the outdoor living room, the indoor sala -- as well as our spacious bedroom. We felt completely welcome and at home.
