Interaction with Guests
I live on the property and love assisting my guests in whatever they may need. I aim to be invisibly available. I can also help you plan personal retreats.
Our location is very special. We are tucked away on a cul-de-sac. Close enough to the action yet removed just enough to provide a sense of spaciousness.
There are taxis and buses available throughout town.
Please let us know in advance when you will be arriving so that we can figure out the best way to get you the keys. Please be respectful of others in the compound. It is OK to party but do so quietly after 12 am. Please lock all doors when you leave the building. If you lose your keys please let us know immediately.
When we arrived we were greated by Patricia and Rodrigo and they welcomed us and got us a bit settled in. We had no information about restaurants or where to go for groceries and they were very helpful getting us in the right direction. The apartment had old world charm, lots of gardens and greenery and the beds were very comfortable! It was located just a few blocks from town and was a great location, but to get to town you must walk down from the hill. I would advise taking a taxi back up to the apartment at the end of the day. ($40pesos)
This was my second time staying with Patricia in San Miguel de Allende, but the first time staying in this apartment. The photos of Casa Dharma are very accurate. Spacious, clean, eclectic and surrounded by nature! Little touches like fresh flowers, and a massive bowl of fruit greeted us upon our entry.The master bedroom opened to a private terrace, surrounded by trees which was very nice for sitting out. Patricia as usual was a very gracious and helpful hostess. Even though she was busy, she was always available by phone. There was also a binder on the coffee table explaining everything from the internet password to take-out menus. She does warn you that there are fireworks that go off almost nightly from 4am onwards, but if you're expecting it, it's fairly easy to ignore, or maybe I'm just a deep sleeper.
She has two dogs, both of whom are very sweet and affectionate. If you're not a dog lover, they'll leave you alone, however we love dogs and enjoyed having them around.
I'll definitely be staying with Patricia again!
The unit is as described by Patricia. If you want a quiet and natural setting away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown, this is the place for you. The furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. Even though there are a few other rental units within this gated compound, the property remains serene and introspective. Renters are allowed to use the host's upper terrace for incredible views of the city. It's a few blocks walk to the beautiful Juarez Park and about a 15 minute walk to the Jardin. Yes, there are cobblestones to negotiate so don't wear heals. Patricia was very nice and accommodating during our stay. FYI, there are 3 large, but friendly, dogs that live on-site.
