About this listing
CASA GUADALUPE 2 is a lovely two bedroom home. The main part of the house has a full kitchen and combination living room & dining room. The second bedroom is on the mezzanine level below and small but it does have its own bathroom. This room is perfect for a child or an adult that is not to large.
The house is located in the happening San Antonio District of San Miguel de Allende, two blocks from the Instituto de Allende and a short walk to the Jardin in the center of town. The house is cozy with many artistic touches. An added bonus is the beautiful Mirador (roof top patio) which has outdoor seating and great views of the city.
If you are interested in renting both Guadalupe 1 and 2 for a larger group please make contact and I will quote you a price. It is possible to sleep 6 if you rent the entire property. This of course is dependent on the availability of both casas.
HOUSE DESCRIPTION: Two bedrooms with two bathrooms, kitchen, dining area and living room. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The second bedroom is on the mezzanine level and is quite small. It is fine for a child but the bed is to narrow for an adult although it does have its own bath and shower. The house also includes a large rooftop lounging area which is partially covered. This rooftop mirador is shared with our other two bedroom house Guadalupe 1 and has fabulous views of the city.
MAID SERVICES: We provide maid service three days a week to wash your clothes, clean the house, make your beds, wash your dishes and take care of the many plants that grace the property. Marta works at the house Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
GUEST ACCESS: Our guests will have sole access to Casa Guadalupe 2 with their own keys. The rooftop mirador is shared with Casa Guadalupe 1. The house has a street door as well as a front door which both lock for excellent security.

SAN ANTONIO NEIGHBORHOOD: Our neighborhood is mixed with both local people and ex-patriots who all get along well. It is an exciting place with lots of restaurants, shops, services and the art and language school, The Instituto de Allende. It is also very near to the new fancy hotel The Rosewood and only a 15 minute walk to the Jardin in the center of town.
GETTING AROUND: As we are in the old historical part of town it is easy to walk everywhere. Taxi's charge only 35 pesos or $3 US and are easily available and safe. There is also a bus that will take you into town from Ancha San Antonio, the main drag of the neighborhood.
