The space

As world travellers,we purposely built eStudio UNO to include everything we look for while travelling;
-an economical price
-accessible/safe/quiet location
-super comfortable bed,good linens,towels
-hot shower w/great water pressure
-fully equipped kitchen
-wifi,cable tv,intercom
-relaxing outdoor hang out spaces
-incredible views!
The eStudios are in a a secure,private,walled compound with two apartments and furnished, covered rooftop terrace with sweeping views over the San Miguel church steeples and the "big sky" mountain valleys-and exquistive sunsets-every night!

eStudio UNO is on the entry level and opens out into a a circular stonework garden courtyard. A curved textured wall seperates the sleeping area with a king bed,from the open plan living/dining/kitchen area. Two handmade cottonwood tables offer space for meals and are moveable to use as a desk as well.Sleeping area has large closets and shelves and a ensuite spacious rainshower (URL HIDDEN) comfortable and stylish with a mix of traditional and Mexican Modern detail,art and quality furnishings.

Also available is eStudio DOS the second floor apartment

Located just 10 minutes north beyond the Fabrica Aurora Art & Design Center, a further 20 minute walk to center of town,central markets and Jardin! Walkable 30 minutes total trip/ 7 minute cab/local bus stops every 10 minutes at bottom of our street.Our street is on a slight hill so the return walk is a short distance of 5 houses but steep (as is much of SMDA)

Please READ ON below "The Neighborhood
and Getting Around" for location details!!!!

Guest access

The eStudios are within secure,private compound with two apartments,garden courtyard and a third floor, panoramic view rooftop terrace as a shared common areas for both apartments.

We are often here working in our private art studios in an adjacent, seperate buildings.We welcome you to visit our art studios! We are available to you anytime but will always totally respect your privacy!

Interaction with guests

We can turn you on to all things on offer from quirky to elegant in this amazing town. We are engaging hosts (as you can see from our reviews on our other listings.) We love to share our discoveries as lovers of great food, music, architecture, archaeology, history and both ancient and modern culture.

You will have all the maps and local suggestions you may need for a magical stay in San Miguel!

We have been managing properties a long time and are very aware of creating comfort for our guests! if we are away, we have a wonderful manager that will check you in and make sure that you have everything you need.

Other things to note

Some houses in San Miguel can be dark, cute but not comfortable,massive in scale, draughty and cold, or are in neighbourhoods that are crowded and constantly noisy.There are benefits of being right in Centro but we offer the serenity of being just outside of the San Miguel yet having access to all the action whenever we want it being a short distance to town. Although we do not have traffic or music or crowded conditions in our area,this is Mexico and fireworks,domestic dogs barking and festival music is part of the culture and therefore part of the soundscape!

As a painter and sculptor we know the local art scene & where the best classes are. The property is close to both the Fabrica Auruoa and Guadalupe Arts District,where there are many art classes held. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you want answered before you arrive or travel options you want to explore.

Cate & Judson are great hosts!! They were very kind from the time of the booking and throughout the stay (what a special touch it was being invited for a drink to a meet & greet!!). Paulina, the property Manager, is awesome!! She handled everything in a way that I felt very comfortable and taken care of, always promptly providing the answers to the questions I had. I stayed at the eStudio UNO for a long weekend and had an amazing experience!! It's very cozy and neat, with a very comfortable bed (the mattress is a bit too soft for me - I have a semi-orthopedic, that's why), nice hot water pressured shower, a fully equiped kitchen, excellent wi-fi signal. Natural lighting is great during the day and yesss... the roof-top was definitely a plus!! It was the perfect place to enjoy a few glasses of wine while enjoying the beeeautiful view of SMA!! The only not so positive comment I have is about the barks and cock crows; there were dogs and roosters around and they were up really early in the morning. Overall I definitely recommend Cate & Judson place!!

Place is awesome and clean! Only negative is that it is far from the city center and difficult to find a taxi or store near the house. Perfect location if you do not plan on leaving to much and spending your time relaxing or working. Great place for creativity! Just ask if construction next door is done. The workers are up early in the AM and it can get pretty loud.

Response from Cate & Judson:
Gracias Giovanni! We are sorry transportation was an inconvenience over Christmas. Our little town is growing and with that we need more drivers during holidays! Our listing clearly shows the distance from town-35 minute walk,7 minutes taxi/car. We also provide info on UBER and Ventu drivers for that reason. The construction is another San Miguel growing pain that is unpredictable. Being airbnb travellers ourselves we do not like surprises but did not realise they would be working over Christmas. Sorry for the disturbance! We are glad it is complete and not ongoing. Thank you for the feedback and also your comments on how beautiful and clean the apartment is-really appreciated! Saludos!

Cate and Judson were amazing hosts! They made us feel welcomed before arriving to the apartment and Paulina was also very helpful with any questions we had while we were in San Miguel de Allende. Their studio is also beautiful and super comfortable. I highly recommend staying here.

We really enjoyed our stay at here. The place is clean and nicer than the photos showed. Paulina was available and answered our questions promptly. The place was a little father from the city center than I anticipated but only a short taxi drive away. We would definitely stay here again.

I had a great time at Cate & Judson's apartment in San Miguel de Allende. The apt itself was very clean and modern, and I loved the floor-to-ceiling windows that provided a great view of SA. Judson was very welcoming, and I highly recommend this apartment to anyone traveling in the area!
