If you have the opportunity to stay at Elaine's while visiting San Miguel - do it!
Especially if you are an artist or writer looking for quiet inspiration off the beaten path, away from the noise of the the city, but really just a few minutes drive outside of town. So close, yet so far!
This is a great place for a writing retreat.
I could tell you Elaine is a wonderful hostess - but easier to tell you ways she went out of her way to make my stay a five-star experience and above and beyond my expectations:
She made me tea from England and served me her handmade chocolates on the patio when I arrived, and discussed my whole stay, offering to help me with logistics. PEACE!
Took me to several places (all in opposite directions) to help me find a charger for my bluetooth keyboard and a new microphone headset for my phone. WIFI!
Introduced me to her friends in San Miguel and always invited me to join in any group plans if I desired.
Stayed in touch by cell phone with me to make sure I had transport to and from the house and went out of her way to offer me rides on her ATV. A fun way to see San Miguel!
She cooked me breakfast and made soup and other goodies - so there was always food in the house to nibble on.
Elaine's house is just lovely - the room has it's own bathroom and is spacious and light-filled. She made me feel at home using the kitchen and outdoor spaces (with a hammock for sunset siestas).
Elaine is full of energy and creative ideas and used to manage a youth hostel....she really knows how to make people feel welcome and find their way in a new place.
About the Host, Elaine
I am from England and have lived in San Miguel for 15 years and would love to share my years of experience and knowledge of the area with you. I enjoy meeting new people from all cultures and will do my best to make your stay a memorable one.
I am here because it inspires me creatively and I love the culture of Mexico.
I designed and had my house built in 2005.
I am a photographer and was officially involved with photographing the local archaeological site - the canyon of the virgin between (phone number hidden).
Among the many other activities I have been involved in, I now find myself making hand crafted chocolate truffles that are sold in local stores. – you may find one on your bed! I have always loved chocolate!
