THIS LOVELY, HAPPY, SPACIOUS HOUSE IS ACROSS THE STREET FROM PARQUE JUAREZ AND SANDWICHED BETWEEN THE NEW FIVE STAR BOUTIQUE HOTEL MATILDA AND THE NEW FIVE STAR ARTESANA ROSEWOOD HOTEL. CASA NARANJA IS DIRECTLY ON ALDAMA, WHICH IS HIGHLY REGARDED AS THE MOST BREATHTAKING AND MAGNIFICENT STREET IN TOWN, DUE TO IT'S CHARMING, PASTEL COLORED, MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR COLONIAL HOUSES. CASA NARANJA IS A 3 STORY, 2 BEDROOM, 2.5 BATH, TERRACED HOME WITH THE SPECIAL LAID BACK, ARTISTIC FLAIR OF IT'S OWNER, WHO IS A FILM MAKER AND HAS SPENT MANY YEARS LIVING BETWEEN LA, NYC, BROOKLYN, CHICAGO, TULUM AND SAN MIGUEL.

  • Our San Miguel experience was absolutely incredible and Lisa's house was the perfect complement to the most charming town on earth.

    The house is truly in the best location in San Miguel. You can walk to all the cool spots from there and having the park across the road is fantastic for morning runs. The house interior feels fresh and airy and the decoration is cozy and original. The back garden is so inviting that we decided spend most of our sunday there enjoying all the delicious food we bought in the market earlier that day.

    Lisa was super helpful and her list of recommended restaurants / places to see was spot on. Her house manager was delightful and very responsive to our requests.

    A return trip to San Miguel is in the plans and will definitely stay at Lisa's house again.

About
I am a traveler at heart and have settled (for now) in San Miguel De Allende after working in nearby villages with leather Artisans. I have been a fashion designer and worked in different cultures to preserve hand-crafting and support skilled people. My eyes are peeled for new discoveries. Keeping it simple and living with beauty and inspiration is what I look forward to each day. I am a regular meditator, a decent cook, have a dog named Tickles, and love to spend peaceful time in nature. The beach and the mountains are my refuge. I am originally from Chicago. As far as hosting goes: I really want happy travelers! My philosophy is that being as communicative and descriptive as possible is the most fair way to enter into a booking. I also like to leave some snacks for guests when they arrive. Providing local insider tips is really helpful for visitors. I also try to respond to questions ASAP from guests. Also, a great mattress, luxury linens, and clean, cozy place are key. My favorite travel destinations are: Tulum Michigan Bali Chicago Maldives I am looking forward to visiting: Morocco Barcelona Panama Greece Istanbul That's a little bit about me. Hope it's helpful!
