The space

Charming furnished apt. on 2 floors, fully furnished. Wonderful open-air kitchen, queen size beds, 1 1/2 bthrms, greenery everywhere, in one of the most sought-after districts of colonial San Miguel de Allende, easy walking distance to the main plaza and all the principal sites and places of interest. Wireless internet, basic cable, central purified water throughout, weekly use of washer/dryer, very large private terrace, pet-friendly - a dog and a cat live on the property. You will enjoy tranquility and privacy from the moment you walk through the door into the walled garden and up the path to the steps that lead to your apartment, which is where "your space" begins ..... with the romantic roof-top bedroom and a view of all the church spires and domes that San Miguel is famous for. Housekeeping service once weekly.


There is a small, cozy restaurant a block away, if you don't feel like cooking in your fully furnished open air kitchen. And ... an easy ten minute walk will take you to a variety of San Miguel's restaurants to choose from.

Those who love the outdoors, lots of light and Nature, will be very happy here!

Guest access

You will have access through the main garden to your apartment, which includes 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bthrms, sitting room, open-air kitchen, and large roof terrace with outdoor furniture. You will also have access to the laundry area on the ground floor and use of the washer and dryer one day a week.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with guests in general is minimal and easy. I live and work on the property and am available when the occasional concern that requires my input arises, which when possible, will be solved immediately. I will receive and orient guests and be happy to answer questions during the first days. If you are staying for more than just a few days, I expect that you enjoy discovering new places on your own and will make use of the many sources of information available to you both in the apartment and around town. And of course, I am always reachable in an emergency, since you will have my cell phone number.

House Rules
Check in is anytime after 3PM

No smoking, please. No loud parties. We are energy savers, so have invested in LED bulbs, and we turn off lights that aren't being used, etc.
In order to respect others on the property, use of the clothes washer and dryer is restricted to the hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on the day of the week pre-assigned to you.
Enjoy and care for this delightful home as if it were your own .... but also relax in it, and feel as free and comfortable in it as if it truly were your own. Most of all, it is a place of harmony and of mutual respect, where guests can leave to enjoy the wonderful attractions of San Miguel and engage in all its festivities, frenetic or otherwise - or a hard day of shopping - then come back home to relax and breathe in the feel of peace, beauty and one's own space.

This is a great place for exploring San Miguel de Allende. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and pretty much all of SMA is within easy walking distance. We never used the car or a taxi and we very much enjoyed our walks to and from the city center. We're a family of four and the house was a very good fit for us. Airy, plenty of room, open air kitchen, a terrace, nice garden, a bit of a view, filtered water, wifi... it's all there. The listing and pictures describe the place well.

My friends and I stayed for a long weekend at Heather's and it was just as described. The photos really do show how beautiful her home is. It was a little further from the city center than we'd liked- so remember to bring comfortable walking shoes as there is a big hill before getting to the center. Very comfortable accommodations and clean! There was a bit of miscommunication in the beginning but it was quickly handled. I would recommend staying at Heather's if you want to be close enough to the center but far from the noise and bustle.

Clean - almost spotless, despite the dustiness of the town. Airy. Bright. The third floor bedroom has a beautiful view. Convenient to the Jardin and Centro. It is an upstairs apartment, so stairs may be an issue for some, plus another set to the third floor bedroom. Loved the open air kitchen on what was once a terrace, however this may be a problem in colder months. Central water filtration system was a pleasant surprise.

Heather's place is a special retreat. It's fun to have a fully supplied kitchen which enabled us to bring home the fresh fruits and vegetables from the open air markets, easy walking to the center and surrounds. Lovely garden as you come off the street. All positive!

This lovely property was an ideal spot to call home during our visit to San Miguel. The location is near the center of town and only a few minutes from the heart of the city. The grounds and garden are a beautiful respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The charm, convenience, value, and clean accommodations, provided by Heather, made this our perfect home away!

Even better than expected from those gorgeous photographs. We recently spent two weeks at Heather's beautiful hideaway in San Miguel de Allende. The location is great, with everything in walking distance, or a short and inexpensive cab ride if the hills get to you. But we had to force ourselves to leave sometimes - it was so idyllic! We spent lots of time just hanging out in the beautiful flat, surrounded by lush gardens, marvelling at the hummingbirds and the butterflies, enjoying the open air kitchen (we ate there most nights) and the adorable bedroom upstairs and its lovely terrace. Terrific value. Everything you need is at hand. We had a wonderful holiday - the place is paradise. Obviously, highly recommended.
