Cate and Judson were great hosts, the house is lovely. We rent the whole house, and the time there was really relaxing. They were very helpful from the beginning to the end; I think it’s nice to live a couple days in an artist house, because you get to know the art-community. Hope to come back soon.
very pleasant stay,bed was great,room comfortable,Cate and Judson were very helpful and knew the local art scene,enjoyed the view and air up above SMA.
There is nothing like a good surprise. Cate and Judson´s place combines a great taste in Mexican arquitecture with the taste of two unique Artists. Considering that the location is a little out of the action, your first impression can be confusion, since this is a case in which a new development is in an area that still has low income residents. The bedroom and the bath are beautiful and in excellent conditions. Regarding Cate and Judson, I can share several nice details that made my visit to SMA unforgettable. Now I have a place that I feel as home and a couple of new friends that I see as Family.
This place is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, easy to get to/from...perfect in every way. I didn't get to meet the owners, but they were great to communicate with before my trip, and once there, Sergio, who helps take care of the house when they're gone, was a great host both at the house and gave me a great orientation to the city--how to get around, what to see, where to go. In short, I can't imagine that there is a better place to stay while visiting San Miguel de Allende.
Beautiful home with and amazing view of San Miguel. Cate and Judson's Art is through out the house adding a personal touch to an already outstandingly designed home. Sergio (who was looking after the house) Was so kind and generous and really made us feel welcome.
I could';t recommend this home more!!!!! thank you !
I know San Miguel very well. The best thing is to be in the middle of one magic and cosmopolitan place. Among galleries, traditions, sceneries and very polite people.
These are the reason why, boutique hotels are so common. But (always the “but”), they are expensive.
So, I was trying to find something very San Miguel style, but affordable.
I did it.
This is the kind of house you usually find in “Architecture digests” or “Habitania” magazines.
A home with character, full of details, art, wood, textures, rocks, homey atmosphere, open spaces, etc. My room was very comfortable, beautiful ceiling, perfect bathroom, full of light and the main: a GOOD bed (soft, firm, new fine sheets, feather eiderdown, nice pillows, quietness, etc.).
The best was to find out how artists live. Their house is like them, they are like everything they have.
The house is not in the “Centro” area. But SM is small. In exchange, is cheap, you have a mountain in your back and an astonish 240° San Miguel view. I enjoyed being in the “terraza” quietness, waiting for the sunset. It happens just in front of you and in the middle you will have the Cathedral.
I need to be alone most of the time. And they respect that. But was very difficult to stay inside when I smelled “the Judson’s coffee”.
The place is good. However my personal experience with Judson and Cate was especially meaningful. Their culture, art, warmth and friendship, was the best unexpected experience in my San Miguel trip. In many ways they have touched my life.
If you would like to feel you are the most important guest in San Miguel, and live the kind of life you imagine when we are reading a magazine… this is the place.
