San Miguel de Allende offers visitors incredible colonial beauty, charming cobblestone streets, nearby hot springs, fabulous restaurants and art galleries; as well as a vibrant and lively community of artists, musicians and writers and a delightful mix of Mexican folk traditions, fiestas and religious celebrations. It is a place that should not be missed in this lifetime!
This lovely flower-filled courtyard home is located in Centro, just a short walk to the Jardin (main square), to the Instituto Allende, as well as many great restaurants, and several of the best language schools. This is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom house which sleeps 2 to 3 people. There a king size bed and bath in the master bedroom- with a terrace right outside; and a separate single bed and bath downstairs which looks out into the courtyard. For your comfort, Casa Ramona has only the softest and finest quality sheets and towels.
There are several wonderful outdoor sitting areas filled with flowers and bougainvillea, and a lovely fountain in the courtyard, all to enjoy the beautiful San Miguel weather in. There is a rooftop terrace with panoramic views of San Miguel, the Parroquia, and the mountains beyond. On the roof along with a terrace with views of San Miguel, is a studio that has a high-speed Internet connection.
In addition to the high-speed Internet access & wifi, we have extended cable television -- with many English language news, sports and movie channels. A 5- CD stereo system. A telephone and answering machine is also available for your use. There is also a combination living area and dining room, with a fully-equipped kitchen. Plus, a maid comes 2 days a week to Casa Ramona to help keep the house clean during your visit.
Romney was able to arrange a last minute stay for us at the house, despite the fact it was Christmas and she was overseas, This was a total lifesaver for us! She responded promptly to the request and everything that was advertised was ready for us upon arrival. Clean house, clean towels, clean sheets and an office with a computer and internet access ready to go. A person was waiting there to give us the keys and voila we were left to our own devices. The location is magnificent. Just a few blocks walk from the main streets of SMA with its craft shops, cafes, supermarkets, galleries and historic places. The neighbourhood feels safe. You don't 'stand out' as foreigners and we found the locals are very helpful and kind. It is also easy to get a taxi from the street in this area. We arrived on a bus from DF and only needed to pay 40pesos to be driven to the house.
Lots of beautiful nooks to hide away and read a book or write across the three floors of this house. My advice for other BNB users is to carefully read the information leaflets Romney has prepared for guests. Thanks for your hospitality Romney!
We stayed here over Thanksgiving weekend. The house is great, really nice location slightly away from the hub-bub of Centro but easy walking distance. There are two bedrooms, a small one off the lower courtyard and a bigger one (with a fabulously comfortable king-sized bed) on the upper level. Both have bathrooms. The kitchen was well-equipped and we really enjoyed the fireplace and the terrace overlooking the city. Great price, too!
Thank you Romney for a wonderful stay! The house is truly beautiful, set on three levels with a gorgeous panoramic roof terrace. The beds and rooms were very comfortable and you are provided with everything you could want. The décor is traditional Mexican and there is a wonderful and relaxing fountain in the courtyard. The house is a short walk from the town center; I couldn't recommend a better place as a platform for exploring San Miguel!
Terrific place. Quiet area yet accessible to Centro. Master bedroom had a very comfortable bed. All the necessary amenities and plenty more. I recommend the unit to everyone and the price is right too!
