Wonderful house in a great neighborhood of San Miguel de Allende. Frances met me on arrival and showed me around, explaining how everything worked. The house has tons of space and the rooftop terrace is really nice. The bed is also fantastic. Absolutely recommend!
Frances' house was absolutely lovely! I wish I could've stayed longer! It's so close to the center, we just walked everywhere. Clean and spacious, with a charming terrace. I definitely recommend it to everyone who visits San Miguel!
Frances and David were perfect hosts, communication was easy and straight forward. They very nicely accommodated me when my arriving flight was about an hour late. The casita is exactly as pictured, very comfortable, clean and pleasant. The bed was very comfortable, and the roof deck was an extra treat. There is some street noise as the bedroom fronts onto the street, which calmed down by about 10-10:30 every night, I did not find it bothersome. Small shops just down the (steep) hill were very convenient. Altogether a great place to stay, and I hope to return!
The casita was basically perfect. Comfortable and closely situated to the centro, the casita served as a near perfect place to stay in SMA. The terrace offered incredible sunset views overlooking the downtown area. The only downside to its location is that it requires an uphill hike at the end of each outing (or a taxi ride). Apart from that, the casita and Frances & David were fantastic. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable place near downtown SMA.
The house was very nice and walking distance to the Jardin. Frances made me feel very welcome and I would recommend her house highly
We had a good stay at Fran's charming casita. The house is comfortable and spacious. The bed was especially comfortable. The house also has a charming roof top terrace, which is a great place to have an evening cocktail.
The location is good. About a 10/15 minute walk to the Jardin, but up the hill a bit and away from too much activity.
Frances & David tracked our flight, saw that we would be arriving much later than originally scheduled and adjusted their schedule to be there to meet us when we arrived at 2 am. They also emailed instructions we would need to be comfortable and independent during our two week stay and provided info about activities and restaurants, as well. And when there was a problem with the water, they took care of it immediately so it wouldn't affect our stay. Frances was extremely responsive to emails, our primary method of communication. The casita WAS cozy and functional, and within easy walking distance of everything. Watching the New Year's Eve fireworks from the terrace was an exceptional way to welcome in 2015!
About the Host, Frances
I'm an American retiree married to a Mexican artist. We have lived in San Miguel since 2008, in a house that had previously been our vacation home. Best decision we ever made. Hope our guests will love San Miguel as much as we do.
