About This Listing
This apartment is suitable for 1 or 2 couples and is augmented with a nice enclosed exterior courtyard to enjoy the outdoors.
We have 2 two ensuite bedrooms, exterior terrace, wifi, flat screen TV & DVD, all in contemporary fashion. Apartments (5) are 10 minutes walk to the Historical Centro. There are a selection of good inexpensive restaurants locally (they will also deliver), and a daily fresh produce market within 5 minutes walk. The bus station for away days to interesting colonial cities is 5 minutes by taxi. We have a great roof top terrace for chilling out in with panoramic views of downtown and surrounding mountains. There is ample street parking outside the building and secure off street parking a minute away (if required). I am Mike from Ireland and have made San Miguel de Allende my home away from home .. perhaps that will happen to you! I am assisted by Stefy who is bilingual and both of us are here to ensure your stay is memorable.
Taxis pass the building all day long and a bus is available one block away.
Apartment 1 (ground floor) consists of a living room with fireplace (gas operated), with leather sofa and 2 sidechairs, sideboard and flat screen tv/dvd leading to a diningroom with table and 6 chairs. This in turn leads to the well appointed kitchen with all equipment necessary to prepare a great meal for six!
There are 2 large bedrooms with queen size beds en suite with all the furniture required to enjoy a good night's sleep.

Surrounded by nice open spaces in quiet area with access to local fruit market and restaurants.

Mike was there to let us in and provided us with a map source and hints on getting around. The apartment was as described and quite lovely. The rooftop patio was delightful especially at sunset with a view of the town blazing up golden in the failing light. The walk into town took us a little longer than ten minutes and the hill was quite steep. We sometimes resorted to taxis that drive by the apartment all the time as an inexpensive alternative.
Spent 3 months in the apt. Well appointed very clean and modern not much street traffic so relatively quiet except for local dogs. Comfortable beds with upscale bedding and towels.Lots of room for guests and entertaining. Other tenants were mostly long term so got to know them. Mike was very welcoming and took me to the grocery store to pick up my first supplies,which was very helpful.If he is not traveling he is available on site.There is a small store 2 blocks away and a good but inexpensive fish restaurant. The apt. is about 15-20 mins from the center of the town depending on how fast you walk. I used this to get my daily exercise but taxis are under $3 if you cannot do the walk.Lots of hot water, heater if it is cool, TV, wireless access, washer and dryer (guests pay gas and electric). Beautiful roof top patio but there are 3 sets of stairs to get up there. I am returning next winter for 3 months. Looking forward to seeing Mike and other returning guests. Jaci Winters
