Interaction with Guests
I sometimes see them at breakfast, but they generally are out all day. I am happy to give them information on tours, shopping, transportation, etc.
My townhouse is located in the historic center, is a few minutes walking distance to art galleries, library, restaurants, theater, the artisan market and the main square. I am surrounded by friendly Mexican kneighbors and banking and shopping is all around me. It is convenient, friendly and safe.
There is a bus stop on the corner of my street.
Respect the house rules of smoking only in the patio and roof terrace, not be noisy and respect my private spaces (studio and bedrooms that are not yours).
La casa maravillosa, la decoración y los detalles exquisitos, la ubicación perfecta, céntrica y a la vez tranquila y cómoda, dormimos súper bien, el desayuno estupendo. Le mande el link a todos mis amigos porque fue un gran descubrimiento.
The house and the room looks just as beautiful as shown in the pictures. This is beyond expectation. Chocolate, flowers and purified water were just by the bed upon arriving. It makes you feel at home. I really like this place.
Margaret's home was stunning, the bedroom spacious, comfortable and impeccably clean... Margaret and her housekeeper were both very kind and accommodating... The home is a short 5-10 walk from the major sites in San Miguel de Allende's historic city centre, and only steps away from the artisan market... The location is quiet and conducive to a good night's rest... We would have liked to stay longer and will definitely stay at Casa Rossa when we return to San Miguel de Allende...
Esta fue mi primer experiencia utilizando este servicio. Quedé muy contento, la casa de Margaret es muy acogedora, bonita, limpia y ubicada en un lugar perfecto. Desde ahí se puede caminar al centro y prácticamente a casi todos los lugares de interés en San Miguel. El cuarto es espacioso, suficiente para una pareja, muy bien decorado y con libros y algunas guías disponibles para conocer San Miguel. Por la mañana desayunamos fruta, yogur, jugo, café y pan que nos preparaba la ama de llaves. En el cuarto cada día nos dejaron un par de botellas de agua y chocolates. Nos sentimos siempre muy cómodos aún cuando la mayor parte del día la pasamos fuera conociendo los alrededores. Margaret es muy amable y atenta. Nos sugirió algunas exposiciones y lugares para comer (excelentes recomendaciones).
