About this listing

Casa Dos Angeles offers location, elegance, and comfort (and a very engaging host!).

The space

Welcome to Casa Dos Angeles! Located on a private, gated cul-de-sac with only seven homes and 24-hour security, just steps from the Rosewood Hotel & 3 blocks from our Jardin, my two angels (the house name, of course!) greet you at the front door upon arrival, and they set the tone for the elegance you'll encounter within.

As an architect, I can tell you my home doesn't fit any one description--it's a cross between European elegance and Spanish Colonial comfort. This is not the home for a family of young children--your vacation abode is furnished with European antiques, Mexican stone, and eye-catching details, perfect for evening cocktails in the courtyard or intimate dinners beneath the candlelit chandelier.

Fireplaces warm the four-poster bedroom and enliven the grand living room, while French doors abound, allowing the entire home to flow seamlessly into the central, fountain-anchored courtyard. If you're ready for a holiday that you'll remember a lifetime, this is your temporary home!

Guest access

I'll greet you personally upon your arrival, provide keys, and show your breakfast-stocked kitchen (I provide supplies for a couple morning's breakfast, then you provide the rest as you settle in). Casa Dos Angeles is also my home--my guests enjoy a private ground-floor en suite bedroom with separate entrance, able to be locked away from the rest of the residence for hotel-like privacy, while I live on the upper floors.

Your rental also includes shared use of the entire lower level: the massive central courtyard, living room and powder bath, dining room, and the gorgeous kitchen. Although I must exit the house through the lower level living room when I come & go, I live upstairs with a breakfast bar, so your mornings are quiet--I only pass through the living room upon exit, and occasionally need to share only the kitchen with you midday or evening.

Besides your own courtyard off the bedroom, I've an astounding roof terrace that you may access upon request while I'm here, say for an al fresco massage in the sun.

Interaction with guests

It's important to know that I work--I'm a Realtor with a home office, so I may come and go throughout the day and when work is done, I'm usually sequestered away upstairs relaxing. But I love being your host--I'll be here to greet you and get you acclimated to both your environment and our town, and enjoy hosting a Happy Hour during your visit, time permitting, to share details about this magical village.

I also write the social column for our local bilingual newspaper, so I tend to know of the social events in town and may leave you a note letting you know which events you might enjoy attending. In short, you'll see me as little as you like!

Other things to note

Your stay at Casa Dos Angeles can be as luxurious as a five-star hotel stay, primarily because there is one next door available for your enjoyment. My goal for you, however, is to connect with our village and our lifestyle--sorry, I don't currently indulge you with a TV, but there is WiFi in your room, of course, MagicJack long-distance phone service for your laptop, streaming music available from an iPod dock, and the most indulgent full-service kitchen available for cheerios or champagne-fueled five-course, chef-catered dinners--just ask!

House rules? Well, my new friends, I live & work here too, so there are some simple requests: no smoking, no pets, and please let's keep the Placido Domingo arias at low volume after, say, 11:00 (your headsets are welcomed!). Momma taught me good manners, and to turn the light off when I left a room, so I'd ask the same of you, nothing more.

Greg Gunter is the consummate host, and his home is exquisite. My husband and I are finishing our second stay with him. The beautiful bedroom opens to a courtyard reminiscent of an Italian piazza. A highlight was enjoying breakfast every morning there. The location is perfect, next to the park and a 5-10 minute walk to the Parroquia. Though Greg lives in the upper two levels, we felt like we had the place to ourselves most of the time. All in all, this Airbnb property is an exceptional value.

We very much enjoyed our two weeks as Greg's guests. He was gracious, helpful, and very knowledgeable about San Miguel. His home is spotless and very comfortable. His housekeeper, Louisa, who is there three days a week, is sweet and efficient. After being out on the town, it is a delight to spend time on the spacious and pleasant patio unwinding with a book or just snoozing in the shade. The patio is also a perfect place to have drinks before going out for dinner. The kitchen is modern and well-equipped, although this is not the place for couples who want to cook in all the time, since you are sharing it with the host. We pretty much did breakfasts in, and an occasional light lunch or dinner. The house has a northern exposure and tends toward the cool side. The bedroom has a small gas fireplace that works well, but we recommend bringing along a sweater if you are going to be there in the colder months. The house is in a very good location, less than a 5 minute walk to the Park Juarez (a leafy place to stroll and sit, along with friendly neighborhood kids and families), less than 10 minutes to the Instituto Allende and the shops and cafes on Ancha San Antonio, and less than 15 minutes to the main square, the Jardin.

Greg was the perfect host – greeting me on arrival and carrying my suitcase into the room. I had my own private entrance into my room. The location is perfect, only a ten minute walk to El Centro and around the corner from the Rosewood Hotel where I was able to go daily to work out and enjoy the pool for a nominal fee. Greg was a perfect host, pleasant and friendly. The kitchen was stocked with necessities such as coffee, filters, milk and breakfast food. I had to buy very little in the way of provisions. The next time I go to SMA, I will stay there again.

Greg was the perfect host -- and his beautifully-decorated home provides a convenient and comforting resting place for all that San Miguel has to offer. He greeted us warmly upon our arrival and meticulously went through all the sights we needed to see during our stay, as well as recommendations for food and drinks (the Rosewood Hotel's terrace, which is down the street, is a must at sunset!). His house is situated a short walk from the "bustle" of the town's center and has a 24-hour security guard at the entrance. He provides all the amenities you need, including breakfast, and is more than willing to offer suggestions or answer any questions. The next time I am in San Miguel -- as I definitely plan on returning -- I will be sure to stay at Greg's place!

Hi, AirBnB Guests!
In the internet age, it's easy to check out your potential hosts on affiliated sites or About Me (check out my profile there, it's full of easy hot-links to see more about me), but let's get acquainted here first!

When my AARP membership kicked in (just over five years now), I became a full-time expat in the Conde Nast Traveler-ranked Number One City in the World, which happens to also be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like Florence, Italy. If your visit here is simply for some experience-rich R&R, I'm great at offering suggestions and pointing out the hot spots in town (I'm the social columnist for our local bilingual newspaper, so I get out once in a while!), but if you're here to explore San Miguel as a potential home, I'm an expert. I'm a top Realtor here--originally trained as an architect in undergrad--a Mexican business owner, a published novelist, have built a home here, and can share everything you might wish to know about life in Mexico.

I'm also an Italophile--perhaps I was Italian in another life?--and my home is very European in style. I love the indoor-outdoor lifestyle our weather here encourages, and you'll find my home flows seamlessly with the outdoors--the French doors at the foot of your bed open directly into your fountain-anchored courtyard in the main photo.

You'll see from the home description that I work full time and am in-and-out with appointments or sequestered away in my upstairs office, but I certainly enjoy playing the role of host--plan on a Happy Hour, time permitting, so we can chat! And remember, your living quarters here are also perfect for hosting a dinner party with new-found friends--I'm happy to provide resources to maximize your enjoyment, from groceries & catering, to in-home massage services or personal tour guides.

I'm thrilled to welcome you to San Miguel, and to Casa Dos Angeles!
