Completely self contained and made more spacious with queen size "Murphy" wall bed (same as those used by Hilton Hotels) Cool,comfortable and stylish with a mix of traditional and modern detail,art and quality furnishings.The covered rooftop terrace offers even more spectacular views and exquistive sunsets-everynight!

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 art studios in an adjacent, seperate buildings.We welcome you to visit our art studios! We are always available to you but 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.

if we are away, we have a wonderful manager that will check you in and make sure you that you 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!

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.

Other things to note

Some houses in San Miguel can be dark, cute but not comfortable,massive in scale, draughty and cold, or 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!

I'm glad we decided to stay in Cate's place, It was a great experience, well thought designed and cosy space with the most beautiful views of San Miguel de Allende. Cate was very responsive and flexible before and during our stay. I will definitely recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment seems to hang amidst multi-level gardens, and comes with a comfortable bed; stylish, low-slung cowhide chairs at the dining table; a high-pressure rainshower under a skylight; clean, cool terra-cotta floors; and a breeze coming in off the balcony - all glorious. From the roof terrace, incredible views of the city and surrounding hills. Perfectly-fit screens on every window, fully-equipped kitchen, washer/dryer. Way nicer than home! Cate and Judson's friend Paulina greeted us at the door, and made sure we got settled in. She checked in with us online several times over the course of the week to see that we were fine. It was great to know we had someone so accessible and kind to rely on if needed.

I had a great stay at Cate & Judson's apartment. Very clean, quaint and cozy. It was somewhat off the beaten path but I used an Uber which took less that 15 minutes of travel to the center of town. There is also a taxi service that you can contact. I took advantage of the quietness to catch up on some work but for the most part I spent my time taking in all that San Miguel de Allende had to offer!

Paulina, i(URL HIDDEN)G. Whatever we needed she instantly was able to help, from ordering us taxis to pizzas, to everything. The place was great, wifi was fast, no AC but if we keep the windows open we were fine... the price could have been a bit better and the rooster that was crowing in the mornings should have been my dinner, but over all it was a great experience. Would definitely recommend!

This is my second time staying at the studio, and I am certain there will be many more stays. I just love it here. I like the ability to be a little away from the center, and have the additional peace and quiet, plus THE VIEWS. The studio is equipped with everything you need to make for a great stay. The location is a good walk to the center. I usually would walk there and take a cab back. It's always a simple process. The rooftop is a spectacular place to watch the sunset each night. Cate and Judson are amazing, and Paulina (house manager) is incredible.

Cate & Judson User ProfileCate & Judson is a superhost.

We are both full time practising artists, Judson, a New Zealand born sculptor and master carver and Cate a USA born painter (and also life coach). We have created amazing homes in both Mexico and Australia that are filled with our paintings and sculptures along with surprising artworks of other international artists and many treasures from both our travels and from nature. We have both managed B & B properties as one of our many lifestyle incarnations and take pleasure in making travellers welcome and comfortable. We enjoy sharing our passions of art,history,culture,music, great food and of course traveling, with others!
We ended up living in Mexico after going on a year trip through South America and across the USA visiting the national parks.Looking for a place to stop and do some artwork, we went to San Miguel de Allende and felt so at home in this amazing colonial jewel. We are currently exhibiting our sculptures and paintings in Mexico, California and Chicago.
We also are enjoying sharing our skills and passion of art making with others. Recently we have opened our home studios both in Mexico and Australia up to both experienced and beginner painters and sculptors who want to have some fun and receive qualified, professional one on one art instruction. Feel free to ask us more about it!
Adventurers at heart, we have soaking up as much of beautiful Mexico when we are there doing trips to various archeological sites and many colonial towns along the way! People often ask us where is home-and we reply that home is in our hearts because we have them with us wherever we go!
Come visit! Happy Travels!
Cate and Judson
