I stayed in Joyce's place recently while in San Miguel. Being here for the first time and having lots of questions, Joyce was a wealth if info and made me feel at home in her charming and cosy place, which was super convenient to my spanish school. The bed wss comfortable and i had full use of the main floor kitchen to prepare mesls if I felt like it. Joyce is a great free spirit with a really propensity to "tell it like it is". I really enjoyed her outlook in general and her keen interest in current affairs.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Parroquia bedroom for a month while working on an intense project in San Miguel. We weren't in the room much, but it was cute, very similar to the photos. Joyce was warm and welcoming, and seems to get a great deal of enjoyment from her guests. I was also happy that the location of her building is well uphill from the canals, which can get a bit smelly in certain weather - the air at Joyce's was quite fresh compared to some of the other parts of town.

What can I say? Joyce is a spectacular host with a big heart. Her dedication to the comfort and support of her guest is better than you would find in most fine hotels. That said, if you are looking for Ritz Carlton level accommodations, then stay elsewhere. But, if you are looking for RockStar accommodations, a great bed, a beautiful well-designed private bath and balcony area as well as a fantastic and unique view of the San Miguel Church at a fabulous rate, Stay Here! The room is located in a nice quaint area of town within easy walking distance to a great market and food area, many squares and San Miguel centro. The descriptions are accurate. And, Joyce is a pleasure to be around. I have traveled for many years in Mexico during my 42 years on this planet and I have to say I will be returning to stay with Joyce as soon as my schedule permits. Her hospitality cannot be beat. She knows the city, she knows the world and is an old soul type who can teach you a thing or two if you listen. Lastly, it is Mexico, that said, if you never been to Mexico bring earplugs, Immodium, and a respectful open mind. Walk in Peace.
