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.
This was a nice place, but a little too far off the beaten path. The walk toward the centro was all uphill and there were no buses. Also, lots of stairs to get to the master bedroom. All in all, not the best place for an elderly couple. We felt it was over priced. We hd rented 3 other places that were Better located at about half the cost. Would not stay there again.
Hi Dick, I am so sorry that our home did not fit all your needs. I can sympathize how the stairs, and the 10 minute gentle, upward slope to the centro, could be challenging for an elderly couple. Although it is true there are no bus lines, the taxis are plentiful right outside the door, hopefully you were able to take advantage of this inexpensive service and enjoyed your time in San Miguel.
Romney is a terrific host. I arrived late (and my bags were lost) and she made sure there was someone there to meet me and show me around. Her girl even took me to a grocery store at midnight for a tooth brush. The house is better than described - 3 levels, all clean, tranquil, nicely decorated and most definitely filled with flowers. A true refuge. The quick walk to town (Centro - Jardin) is easy, safe and picturesque. The rooftop terrace is so relaxing. The king-size bed is very comfortable. The internet is fast. And great towels! An excellent value. San Miguel is a truly magical place to escape, relax and get back in touch with some of the more basic (and important) values in life - which includes no stress, no hustle & bustle, great weather, sensational margaritas, huge fresh breakfasts for less than $5 and the occasional donkey walking in the street. I went there for 5 days to write and the house afforded me all the inspiration and tranquility I could have asked for. Thanks! Had a great trip.
Such a lovely home in San Miguel. Very well equipped. The fountain in the courtyard was so relaxing. The upstairs bedroom was so comfortable! We had everything we needed, even a fan to keep us cool. We had plenty of hot water for our showers each day. The neighborhood is in a flatter area and we walked all over! Excellent restaurants only a few blocks away. We highly recommend staying here!
Romney was an excellent host, and the place was exactly as described! A charming home with bright colors and a stunning terrace. San Miguel is such a magical place, and it was great to have a clean, comfy space on the edge of town to retire to at night. Rosa the housekeeper was especially sweet and did such a nice job also. Thanks for a great stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed this casa while staying in San Miguel. The photos are accurate but don’t capture the wonderful light and shade that changes throughout the day on the walls and patio spaces. An artist owns this place-- artful but uncluttered. A real retreat. The kitchen has plentiful cookware and even some food staples on hand.
The only drawback for us was the walking distance to the town’s bustling sections. That said, my husband and I both have some leg issues. It took us a good 20 minutes to walk to the Jardin and a good 15 minutes to the Instituto surrounds. On our daily adventures we learned to walk one way and taxi back. (Taxis always show up within a couple minutes of looking for one and cost about 35 pesos plus tip.)
The owner gives good information about the town (some of it a bit out of date) and her local staff people are responsive to any questions.
It’s obvious that the owner pays attention to her property and its amenities.
So glad you enjoyed Casa Ramona Gayle. I will definitely look over all the town info (of which there is a lot) and update anything that has changed. Of course walking distance is relative... I walk to centro in 10 minute, but I know Jack had a fall while there. I hope he recovers quickly. You were a pleasure to host. Best, Romney
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Ramona. The house was as described, the kitchen well equipped, the beds comfortable, and the location was a very doable 15 minute walk from the central part of town. It was easy to get a taxi near the house and they were inexpensive.
The owner, Romney, was very responsive and a pleasure to work with.
San Miguel is a delightful place. The people are warm and friendly, the food is great, and we always felt very safe, even when walking home late at night.
We would definitely recommend Casa Ramona to anyone and San Miguel is not to be missed!
