La Pajarera is a lovely apartment just steps away from the center of San Miguel. The artwork, tile work and decorations are beautiful and fanciful. It is clean, comfortable and magical. It is walking distance to everything you would wish to see in San Miguel. The rooftop terrace has unbelievable views of the churches and town squares - the sunsets are awe inspiring. I loved watching the doves sail down through the sky to and through the church spires. Patricia is kind and very helpful - and a great source of advice about good restaurants, etc. We absolutely loved our stay there - and plan on returning to La Pajarera. I give this 6 stars out of five!

We encountered an apartment and rooftop terrace, which was the featured photo of Patricia's Airbnb listing, under construction for well over half of our stay. I would never rent from her again. Her attitude was meant to be accommodating, but in fact she blamed others for the condition of the rental and moved us to her own house well outside the "awesome location" of central San Miguel while construction continued, despite the fact that I had rented the house more than a year previously. At her house, I was responsible for overseeing her five animals, which I agreed to as someone sympathetic to animals and having no alternative. In high season, there is no where else to stay in San Miguel, which is why I'd rented her apartment so far in advance. Patricia is not a bad person, but she is an incompetent and deceitful landlord who did not even alert me before my arrival to the construction going on. Instead of a restful three weeks, I had to endure noise and workmen for five days, then move to her house, care for animals, and ten days later -- after a couple of postponements, move back to the apartment -- move again back to the apartment. She cited her "strict" cancellation policy when I suggested I be compensated for the problems. I was the one who paid the price, both literally and figuratively, for renting from her.

Response from Patricia:
This was indeed an unfortunate and temporary situation, that rarely happens, and is now resolved. The upgrades are in. I tried to rectify this situation to the best of my ability, my house being far more valuable in rental terms than our other places. These things happen in Mexico, and some people would be better off in a hotel with a concierge. Again, every year we strive to improve on our properties as San Miguel itself is blossoming as a favorite destination. Saludos!
