About This Listing
Whole third floor. On a quiet walkway half a block from the main street with shopping and restaurants.
Rustic contemporary design with lots of skylights, Kitchenette, 2 ceiling fans and gas fireplace. Both covered and open outdoor seating areas.
The entire space has a fantastic view of the church spires without needing curtains for privy.
Space has about anything needed but just in case I live on the second floor and can loan what is needed.
Interaction with Guests
This is brand new so it hasn't happened yet. It's probably up to them. The stairway to the third floor is beside the entrance to my house on the second level so we will be likely to see each other when they enter
It is a quiet walkway so no traffic noise. The walkway is charming with murals and garden areas along it. It is very close to major shopping and restaurants. Walk one way to the jardin, another to the Instituto which is close.
At the end of the walkway (about half a block) is a major bus stop and one of the best places in town for taxis.
Other Things to Note
The kitchenette is small so not for major cooking. It is perfect for breakfast, snacks or heating up last night's doggie bag. The space would also work for entertaining outside and the kitchen has enough space and dishes to manage a small gathering.
Two plush bathrobes are included as well as hairdryer, WiFi and cable tv with English channels.
smoke only outside. Don't make too much noise. No dogs since I have three cats. The cats may want to visit so if that's a problem, keep the door to the unit closed. The doors to the terraces face the other direction so can be left open if you choose.
Beautiful apartment in a great location! The patio views are stunning. Suzy is a wonderful, welcoming host.
Suzy made us very welcome. The apartment is on a very quiet lane but very easy to walk into town. We would definitely return.
I am a longtime visitor to San Miguel and I can confidently say Suzy's penthouse is hard to beat for location (5-minute walk to La Parroquia for example), silence (always an issue when staying downtown), terrace views (you could spend your whole San Miguel holiday on Suzy's terrace) and overall price-for-quality ratio. And don't forget to check out Suzy's wonderful gallery downstairs as well.
We so much enjoyed Suzy’s warm interactions and help her provided us with suggestions for what we could see, eat and do in San Miguel. Her apartment is on a quite walking street and thankfully away from the ubiquitous street noise. We enjoyed the beautiful design of the apartment including very private shaded and sunny decks. The views of the lighted cathedrals are awesome! We appreciated the daily maid service, which kept the apartment spotlessly clean. The kitchen has all that is needed and the rock walk in shower was a pleasure.
Our vacation in San Miguel de Allende was incredible. Suzy's penthouse was in a great location and we were able to walk everywhere. The penthouse had all the amenities we needed and was very clean and roomy for a couple. The view and lounging area on the balcony became our favorite past time. Ceiling fans were also a nice bonus. Suzy was very helpful in finding our way around the city and had amazing travel guides for us to borrow. She's very friendly and not too invasive. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend her Penthouse to others.

About the Host, Suzy
I am an interior designer who turned to painting. I worked in NYC for 20 years where I also studied painting at the Art Students League. I then moved to CT to have more room to paint.
I moved to San Miguel 8 years ago. I built on a vacant lot and have a gallery on the ground floor, my home on the second and this space on the third. I designed the entire place and the paintings and furniture in the gallery are all my work.
