About this listing

I DO book for more than 30 days, but talk to me first! Walk to everything SMA has to offer. Your private, colorful, clean apt. 10 min. drive to Ventanas Golf! Great neighborhood, w/street art, restaurants, organic market & more. Most comfy queen bed in San Miguel, private outdoor space.

The space

Whole Apartment! Smoke free, but you may use the private yard to smoke if you like. This is a wonderful, serene, comfortable one bedroom apartment with a private yard.

There are weekly and monthly discounts!

I have dogs in my yard, and you have to walk through it to get to the street, so you have to like dogs, and not let them out. The dogs will be gone July 27-Sept 6.

Minutes walk to restaurants, art supply store, organic market, streets full of street art, neighborhood stores for anything you need, including meat, chicken, fish, tortillas, hair salon, etc., etc. The Parroquia and Jardin Principal, tourist office, dozens of restaurants, Artisan Market, is all withing 15 minute walking. Don't like to walk? No Problem. Call a taxi. Super affordable!

Your kitchen will be stocked with your first breakfast foods or snacks, so you can rest after your trip. Sip your morning coffee or tea in your own tranquil garden.

Feel Old Mexico in the lovely colors, brick arches, and large windows, in this apartment, which is part of a large hacienda style home. Walk barefoot on your marble floors, sip your cold beer at your outdoor table.

Pleasant, private and charming, is this garden level apartment in Colonia Guadalupe. No stairs!

Utilities, WiFi, are included. Dishes, linens, and of course, all necessary appliances are provided. Your first few day's supply of paper and plastic products, and complimentary soaps and shampoo, will be ready for your use, so just bring your art supplies, computer, clothes and a toothbrush! You can get anything else you need here in our many stores.

Most folks who come for a vacation, do little cooking, but you have a small gas stove with oven, a microwave oven, toaster, blender, and all necessary pots and pans that you need to make meals, coffee or tea, etc.

Your weekly cleaner, only charges you $250 pesos to change your bedding, wash the towels and sheets, clean your bathroom and all counters and floors. This is about $15 usd.

The apartment is at one end of a large house. You share a typical Colonial entrance-way into a courtyard. The laundry room is also shared. Rules and hours will be posted in the laundry room. I'll supply the soap and dryer sheets for the first load.

My dogs are often in the courtyard, so if you do not like dogs, this is not for you. (They are friendly)

Guest access

There is a large inexpensive gym in our neighborhood, a few blocks walk.

I've already mentioned some of the convenient businesses here in Colonia Guadalupe, and will describe some of the amenities of the larger community of San Miguel.

If I am available, I am always happy to take a couple of walks around to introduce you to the sites and shops! You will have a map in your apartment, and information including menu's for take out, etc.

San Miguel is a UNESCO World Heritage City, with so much to recommend it, that it is hard to know where to begin. There are theaters for film, jazz, classical, Latin, music fests and performances, classes in sculpting, painting, pottery, stained glass, etc, etc. The hot springs are a short ride out of town. Many people go horse back riding nearby. There are numerous language schools and private tutors.

There is a large bi-lingual library that will issue you a card. There are house tours, walking tours, out-of-town tours that could keep you busy all year! Most people walk from here to the Center, but there is a bus about 2 blocks away, and Taxis are about $40 pesos all over Centro Historico. (Buses are 5 pesos)

Smoking outside only, and no wild or loud party animal types, please.

You can usually share the large courtyard if you want to catch the sun, or take your morning coffee with company.

Interaction with guests

You will be greeted upon arrival, and given an orientation and map, so you know where you are and how to begin your explorations of this fabulous historic town. If possible, I will take you around the town personally...(or not, if you prefer) You will share my property and courtyard entrance, because the apartment was originally part of the large house... and can ask me questions any reasonable time.

Other things to note

Airbnb gives you the wrong address!! It is not number 11-12, it is out of sequence. There is a long turquoise wall with a mural of a woman's head, and it is not on the side of the street an odd number should be on! The number is 5- B.

Utilities, tap water, electricity, cable TV, gas and WiFi are all included unless your stay is over 2 weeks, in which case, you pay for part of your gas. Beginning supplies of paper products and complimentary shampoo, and bath soap are also included. When you use my gifts up, the replacements are yours to buy. If you don't use up what I supply, please leave them for the next guests. (except for bar soap...if you can use it, keep it!)

You may book here for up to 30 days...if you want to stay longer, that's just great, but you must make those arrangements with me directly. Rent and security deposit of $150 for the time booked directly, come to me directly.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check in time is flexible

Smoking is allowed outdoors only. This is an apartment for mature quiet living. Pets with written permission only. It is not baby proof, and only one queen bed, so if you bring an infant or toddler, or any age child, you must be vigilant in watching them, for their safety! I have some cushions you might be able to fashion into a floor bed for a small one. Too small for anyone over 3.5 ft, I think.
Conservative use of utilities is a must if I am to provide them. No electric heaters are allowed. Use of laundry machines, no later than 9 pm. Thank you!

You must also acknowledge
Potential for noise - San Miguel celebrates everything with noise. There can be construction sounds in the metal shop across the street during the days. Etc. Mexico!
No parking on property
Some spaces are shared - Laundry room and machines shared with main house. Entry from street into courtyard is shared.

Sharyn's place is lovely full of color, and even better close to everything and away from the noice in centro. The stay here was perfect and she was an awesome host. The kitchen is fully stocked to cook anything. The patio was Lovely, and we met her dogs only a few times during our stay, and super friendly. This is a perfect place for anyone trying to see the city and super close the artisan market which is sooo worth it.

I had a very comfortable stay at Sharyn's studio. When I arrived, I immediately felt so right at home. Sharyn was so accommodating and surprised me with a thoughtful spread of fruits, healthy bread, granola and fresh milk. I am so grateful to have had a wonderful experience at Sharyn's place.

I stayed for a wonderful week at Sharyn's apartment in the Guadalupe neighborhood of SMA. I very much enjoyed my stay, and greatly appreciated the spacious, clean and comfortable apartment Sharyn provided for a really affordable rate. She was very helpful ahead of time, as I had never been to SMA and had no idea about airports and shuttles and the like. Sharyn is very upfront about the neighborhood environmental noise, but it was unexpected that her dogs would be adding to it whenever she left home. Luckily, I was out most of the time that happened, but one should be aware that it could happen. Bring earplugs no matter where you stay is the best advice, and just enjoy the magic of San Miguel!

Response from Sharyn:
Colleen did tell me that the dogs barked ONE TWO HOUR PERIOD when I was gone. Her comments sound as if she knows it happened other times when she was not home? And yes, it could happen. But know (URL HIDDEN) dogs sleep inside and quiet all night every night. My dogs are kept quiet for sure when I am home.

I retired to Mexico from California with a desire to re-connect to creativity and fun and adventure. It has not disappointed me! Inspiration is everywhere. I feel so fortunate to live in a thriving artist colony. I had no idea how culturally diverse and wonderful Mexico is. Come for a visit, and you just may stay forever for the lifestyle!

I have a son, a daughter, and 3 wonderful grandchildren still in California and New Mexico.
