El Nido is a brand new, large, artsy, tasteful 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in colonia Guadalupe. It's 5 minutes to Via Organica and 12 minutes to the jarden/centro. Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, original art, rooftop garden with herbs, veggies and views!
El Nido is extraordinarily beautiful and unique with Mexican touches. Guests have said that it is like living in one of Diane's paintings. It fits 4 comfortably. The guest bedroom has a murphy bed so if there are only 2 people, it can be used for writing or studio space. Guests have outdoor spaces with the patio which overlooks the courtyard and the jardin upstairs.
Guests have access to laundry and spectacular jardin/garden upstairs.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house to the rear of the property. We are respectful of guests' privacy and are happy to answer questions and interact as much as guests wish.
Guadalupe is one of the best neighborhoods. It has been designated as the Arts District and has over 25 murals (soon to be 33!) which are fun to discover. We are 5 minutes to Via Organica and the best art supply store, plus 12 minute easy walk to the jardin.
Walking is the best way to get around, but taxis are readily available and affordable. There are also buses.
Other Things to Note
We call our complex Casa Caramba. We have solar electricity, hot water and some space heating, plus many green features. It is truly extraordinary.
We expect respectful guests and pets and inside smoking are not allowed.
The Nido is a beautiful house. I was delighted looking at every single detail. The roofs are hand painted! Gorgeous! The house is a 12 min walk from the main square. A very good location not no far away, neither to close to the buzzling central area. So it is perfect for a resting holiday. Diane kept our luggage safe the day of the check out, for a couple of more hours. It is very clean, and in a safe and quite neighborhood. I highly recommend this place.
DIane es una excelente anfitriona, a pesar de que no estuvo al momento de la llegada nos dejó encargada con una vecina que nos mostró el lugar y nos ayudó a encontrar lugares de la zona.. El lugar es muy bonito y está muy bien equipado. Los cuartos están limpios y están muy cómodos.
Beautiful place, a short walk to downtown San Miguel, and extremely friendly and accommodating hosts! Only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
We recently stayed at El Nido, and it was just lovely! Everywhere you look there is a thoughtful, artistic detail, not mention the fresh fruit and flowers on the day we
The apartment is on a lovely, quiet part of town, near La Aurora and a wonderful organic restaurant and store.
Walking distance to downtown, delightful terrace and garden, beautiful interiors, charming hosts... didn´t need anything else!

Rob and Diane designed and built El Encanto and Casa Caramba as the kind of place we'd like to live in and stay in--full of nature, art, and comfort. We're both botanists by training and the gardens are a special focus. Diane is an artist and you'll see her touch throughout the property.
