This lovely 700 square foot Condominium was totally renovated in Dec. 2008. It is located in a lovely, countrified area which is a 20 minute walk from the Jardin called Colonia Allende.
The house has a very nice private patio, and is surrounded by trees,plants, and fountains.
The appliances are just a few years old, with lots of dishes, linens, and everything you need for a comfortable vacation. We have a washer/dryer, microwave, desktop computer, flat screen cable TV(English stations) wi-fi, and Vonage phone that is free. The bedroom has a brand new king size bed, and walk in closet. We have many CDs and books.
The housekeeper cleans once a week at no charge to you, and will supply purified water for a few dollars.
The bus is two blocks away, and takes you to the center in 10 min. or it is a $2.25 cab ride.(30 pesos)
We also have a private secure parking space inside the condominium
There are two gas fireplaces that work well.
The condominium is well managed with a manager who is bi-lingual, and very helpful. He will meet you with the keys, and explain all you need to know.
The neighbors are a very nice mix of ex-pats and Mexicans. Please e-mail for more information. Thank you. (email hidden)ere is a $300 security deposit that will be returned the day you leave.
I live in NY, but am always available by phone or email. The manager Oliver Caraco is in San Miguel, and is almostt always available should there be any problems. He is very responsive, and very nice to deal with.
The neighborhood is quiet, and peaceful. If you don't feel like shopping in the bigger stores there are many small groceries, and vegetable stores right on Cinco de Mayo just a few blocks (website hidden) is a nice 20 minute walk to the Center with interesting shops,cafes, and restaurants along the way.
There are 2 bus lines a few blocks away, and taxis are always available.
Joan's condo in San Miguel de Allende was perfect. It is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and an easy, interesting 10-15 minute walk to El Jardin. I was very glad not to stay in the busy center. Right near the condo, there were some wonderful fruit and tortilla shops, and the huge grocery store, Mega, is a 10 minute walk away. There is a vonage phone, too, in the condo, which was so convenient for calling my family (unlimited calls to Canada and the States). Joan was a pleasure to make arrangements with and was very responsive to emails. And Oliver, the caretaker of the condo, is really welcoming and helpful if you need anything. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, beautiful, comfortable place to stay in San Miguel!
Joan is a very responsive host. Plus her property manager, Oliver Caraco is terrific. I had some minor issues with phone, shower, and internet which got fixed quickly. The condo is quiet and restful, only a 15 minute walk from El Jardin.
The bed was very uncomfortable for me. Overall I would recommend this place highly, especially if the bed situation improves.
Very cozy appartment in a very quiet and private street. Perfect for a couple in a convenient location, not so far from downtown but still far enough to avoid noise for September 15th. independence day celebrations. Would definitely stay again. Was not able to meet Joan but she was very accesible by mail and met with Oliver, the manager without any trouble. Thanks for letting us stay in your place!
A very nice condo, perfect for a couple. Pleasant patio, big king bed (very firm), comfortable kitchen/dining/living area. We came to S. Miguel with a car and it was wonderful to have a place to park inside the condominium compound gate. Very close to the center but far enough away to avoid noise ( zero traffic noise). All in all, a very good spot for our stay in S. Miguel.
This place is absolutely fantastic! Whether it is your first visit to San Miguel or are already familiar with the city, Joan's place has the best of both worlds: you are close enough to the city center (about a 20 minute walk - also, very pretty!) but also far away enough that you can "get away" from the noise and the tourists. The apartment itself is very comfortable, it does get chilly especially at night, but that is easily fixed by turning on the fireplace. Also, we were very pleasantly surprised to find hand-written instructions and tip sheets with recommendations for dining and shopping, which were very helpful! I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend. Thanks!
Our stay at this condo was excellent. Its in a rather good location. Far away from all the city noise but close to the center of the main Jardin. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay. The Condo is very well furnished and located in a secure and small gated community. Very nicely decorated and very clean. The condo has everything you need to enjoy a good stay in San Miguel. The city is beautiful and it has so many attractions. The condo is perfect in every way. My family and I will definitely stay here again in the future.
Staying at this condo made our stay in San Miguel so much more comfortable.
Good value for the price. Best part is the silence. Generally a very nice stay. Gracias!
We enjoyed our stay at Joan's condo in San Miguel and would consider returning. The condo itself was very well equipped and we found that we used the washer/dryer and the free Internet and long distance service more than we anticipated. The condo itself was very quiet, which is sometimes a challenge in Mexico. The onsite Manager, Oliver, was very helpful if we needed directions or assistance. In a few instances, we had a question for Joan and she was very quick to repond by phone or email.
As advertised, the location was about a 20 minute walk to Centro and La Jardin, but there were lots of inexpensive taxis and regular buses within a short distance to the condo. Also, some of the best restaurants in town are as close as a 10 minute walk.
All in all, we loved San Miguel and Joan's Condo was a big part of this.
My parents had an amazing time. They loved the apartment and the peacefulness of the neighboorhood. Would book again, may be for me.
