About this listing
Private room in lovely quiet house away from the tourism of San Miguel, yet just a 15 minute walk to the center of everything. xox
I have available a downstairs bedroom with bathroom just off it. The living space and kitchen are shared. Rent includes all utilities and wifi. The cleaning fee is for general weekly cleaning, not maid service. There is a stationary sink for hand-washing out back, which you are welcome to use and you may have limited use of the washing machine.
Mine is a quiet writer's house in Col. Independencia - a great place to work or relax. Lots of light, lime and fig tree, great neighborhood, convenient to everything, nice neighbors. Fifteen minute walk into el centro or local bus passes by the house.
My home is a very basic Mexican house in a working class neighborhood. I have no off-street parking. I cannot accommodate pets as there are already two dogs here and an elusive house cat. If you're looking for a nice secure and pleasant home in San Miguel, come stay with me. xox
No off-street parking.
Interaction with Guests
good level of privacy.
No smoking in the house please, on the patio is okay. Must be okay with dogs and one cat in the house. No additional pets please. The room is rented to individuals and I ask that there be no additional guests without prior permission and a supplement paid.
Relaxed, easy-going atmosphere.
I stayed at Fay's house last year for two weeks. This year I stayed for five. It's still great. Quiet, the loudest noise is the sound of the doves. Sunny patio with flowering trees. The house is a mile from town, so you're out of the tourist area, but when you want to be where the action is you can walk, take the bus for .30 (10 minutes to the center of town) or a cab for $2. People are friendly and you hear laughter everywhere. Amazing sunsets two blocks away. Because food is so inexpensive, I ended up spending less for this vacation than I do living at home. And when you have questions, Fay has lived there a long time and knows the answers.
Fay was lovely and so is her home. A friend had recommended Fay and her place because it is comfortable, pretty and has reliable wifi and it delivered on all three counts. The neighborhood is a very safe area that is about a 15 minute walk from the Centro. There's a great breakfast spot just around the corner 7 days a week, and a very elegant restaurant nearby on the weekends. Fay herself is a fascinating individual and professional poet; we had great conversations when both free but she had no trouble giving me quiet and privacy to work when I needed to (I'm a writer). Thank you for everything Fay!
Fay was LOVELY and so helpful!! She took great care of me but gave me plenty of space. The room was extremely comfortable (best bed EVER) and the super-fast wifi made it easy to get some work done. Hope to be back one day!
A lovley week staying with Fay, it felt like home. Slept in a comfortable bed and a great hot shower. There a regular buses or an easy 15 to 20 min. walk to el centro. I would be very happy to stay there again on my next visit to beautiful San Miguel de Allende. Danielle
I spent two delightful weeks in Fay's home and immediately booked my time there for next year. The house is exactly as described, not too surprising since Fay is a writer. Super quiet, and you can't hear a car at night at all. Very Mexican, but with a French press coffee maker and better wifi than I have in Portland. It's exactly a mile from the central plaza, so you can amble up there, take the bus at the next block, or a cab. I liked being out of the bustle of the tourist and commercial center, but i liked being able to get their slowly, medium, or quickly as needed. Fay is a very busy person, but she always has time to help, and gives reliable advice. The dogs are no problem, they only bark when it's important.
Excellent location, easy walking distance to everything in san miguel city and bus station and lovely women! Great size room, everything you need. Wonderful place to visit! Thank you for having us!
