Casa Karina is a luxury vacation rental in San Miguel which perfectly blends contemporary design features with eye-catching rustic elements. The attention to detail is second to none. This peaceful retreat has thought-provoking indoor and outdoor living areas which are mindfully designed to complement your mood. This stylish vacation home hosts two spacious bedrooms - each with their own private en-suite bathroom.

The space
Casa Karina is located at the top of a quiet pedestrian alley just below San Miguel’s main lookout point, and extremely close to two wedding venues, Casa Chorro & Casa Cien. It is also located right above The Rosewood Hotel, and Parque Jarez, two main attractions that should be on your 'to do list'. The house’s rooftop terrace captures sweeping panoramic sunset views, including sight of the town’s most famous landmark - the Parroquia de San Miguel. The rooftop of Casa Karina features a heated glass bottom swimming pool, a black marble firepit with wraparound seating, and an outdoor kitchen with a Viking barbecue grill. The terrace is complete with a half bathroom and a laundry room.

Guests enter Casa Karina via a commanding 19th-Century River Teak door which was imported from Rajasthan, India. You are immediately welcomed by a handmade hammock which sits next to a fireplace. This artisan hammock is weaved over four months in the Wayuu style prevalent in northern Colombia. The floors and beams are made from recycled hardwood ‘Trojes’ from the state of Michoacán, which is prominent in the blue tones of the kitchen’s ceiling. All of the doors in the home are made from heavy antique mesquite wood, also from Michoacán.

The living room in this luxury retreat has a double-height ceiling which fills the floor plan with natural light. The house’s rooftop swimming pool has a glass bottom which serves as a skylight, casting a subtle teal hue throughout the home. This unique effect is due to the small, polished glass beads that possess an individual brilliance. Casa Karina’s artwork makes use of thick wood as a canvas. All the pieces are by Lola Picó - a local artist originally from Lleida, Spain.

The ground floor hosts one of the spacious bedroom suites, which opens up to the main living room area. This bedroom is furnished with a king-sized bed and has a fireplace. The en-suite bathroom features a double vanity with sinks upscaled from coffee mortars, quartzite counters, and tan river stone flooring. The room is complete with a bathtub and shower.

The chef’s kitchen perfectly blends contemporary functionality with attractive vintage-chic finishes. The open kitchen features a complete range of Viking appliances, including a professional oven, a dishwasher, and a French door refrigerator. The counters are finished in raw quartzite while the basin sink is made from a large river stone. The ground floor also includes a bar area, which is stocked with mezcal and wine for guests’ enjoyment.

The second bedroom in Casa Karina is located on the upper level and also features a king-sized bed and a fireplace. This bedroom also has a cozy reading nook/window seat which captures sight of the Parroquia. The en-suite bathroom is finished with grey shaved stone flooring, a river stone sink, and a large walk-in shower.

Additional rooms on the upper floor include a TV room with a custom L-shaped sofa and an office with a desk and a Balinese day bed. This can accommodate an extra adult or two children, putting the sleeping capacity of the home at six. Those interested in learning more about the niche details of this one-of-a-kind vacation rental are invited to inquire for further information and availability.

Location

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico

What makes our neighborhood so unique is that we are two blocks from the main center square, but our location isn't near any direct busy traffic. We are nestled up a callejon, which is a dead end street. This street gives you privacy, and is quiet. Also, since we are right in town, you are walking distance to many boutiques and restaurants.

Although I am originally from Mexico City; I have been living abroad throughout the United States since I was 14 years old. About 8 years ago I decided to move back to México (Puerto Vallarta) and convinced my soon to be wife, Julia, to do the same. A few years later we moved to San Miguel Allende on a hunch.. which easily turned into the best decision we ever made for ourselves. We now have a 3 year old daughter and surrounded by a wonderful community of like minded friends. I am a photographer / video producer by trade; recently immersed in Design & Architecture together with Julia, who is passioned by her Yoga teachings. We've just spent the last 3 years designing & building an incredible project to build a small house in the heart of San Miguel Allende with only you, our guest, in mind. We've tried to think of every perk imaginable to perfect the SMA experience. As they say.. Mi Casa es tu Casa and we cannot wait to share it with you. I have no doubt you will absolutely love this town as much as we do.
