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.

The neighborhood

The neighbourhood is mixed Mexican with both "snowbird", seasonal and permanent international residents. When the weather is right, the street is a riot of vivid flowering bougainvillea bushes, especially during the rainy season. There are dogs that bark - some more than others - and "environmental music" often spills over from neighbouring houses.. .you don't get to pick the play list or the volume.... the San Antonio district is no stranger to fireworks, cohetes at odd hours of the day and night, and many of the traditional fiestas originate in or pass through this part of San Miguel, albeit generally at a distance of a few blocks away. If you are adventurous, you can stand on the street corner and eat hot, charred elotes straight off the coals, sprinkled with lime, salt and red hot pepper. Or try your luck and your Spanish in the fruits and vegetables city market, a 5-minute walk from home, and also have fresh produce in your frig every day! A freshly-made quesadilla, taco or torta at the market is also a possibility. In other words, the neighbourhood will give you "the full Mexican experience" if you open your eyes and your senses, slow your steps, query differences instead of judging them, maybe try some on, smile a lot, buy hand-made tortillas around the corner on Canal St, and fill them with rajas y champiñones for breakfast, walk slowly, breathe deeply, listen for the church bells, and smile a lot.

Getting around

There is public bus service around town, as well as inexpensive taxis, and also "cuatri-moto" rentals. There is a new car rental service. relatively expensive. Transportation to/from the airports is provided by BajioGo shuttle service, Viajes Vertiz, and others. There is street parking - sometimes you have to struggle for it! - and if you plan to walk most of the time, it is recommendable to place your vehicle in one of the parking lots around, for a moderate fee.

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 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.

Not far from all the central activity but on a charming street of its own. So pleasant I could have stayed in. Reviews and pictures are accurate.

Heather has the most beautiful courtyard in San Miguel! The casita is bright and colorful, and Heather is a lovely host. I enjoyed my two-month stay with her.

You enter Heather's front door into a little garden paradise. The apartments are lovely. I highly recommend her AirBandB. Be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes. There are uneven cobblestone streets everywhere.
