About this listing
This is the most confortable space at Casa Las Palomas. An open concept 900sq. feet, with a fully outfitted kitchen, a dining table for ten. The sitting area open to a narrow private courtyard with plants and a table for a quiet tea. A confortable, new king bed awaits for your afternoon siesta !
Lovely green tiles in the large bathroom.
Our guests can enjoy wonderful sunsets from the terrace, where we often join them for a glass of wine and music. The nest (see photos of bamboo structure) is also a wonderful place to sit and read book and watch the entire town below. It has a 360 degree view.
Interaction with Guests
We want our guests to enjoy their privacy while they stay at Casa las Palomas, but we find that since Joyce and I love to meet all the wonderful people that come to stay with us; we often gather at the terrace in the evenings , for the spectacular sunsets. We also love staying and and cooking simple but tasty meals from great local food and we often invite our guests to join (website hidden) is best when shared with friends, a glass of wine and good conversation.
Also, first time visitors to San Miguel join us in our daily walks to the centro and sometimes sit with us at the cafes, where we can talk about the many wonderful things to see and visit.
We love our neighbourhood !
It has a vibrant community feeling. Children playing on the streets, lots of grocery stores, butchers, and bakers at hands reach. Our immediate neighbours are both Mexican and American and they are all lovely and friendly people. There is even a 50 seat run theatre called The Shelter Theatre, run by a Canadian and Mexican couplewhere every tuesday there is an open mike evening.
The Santa Julia bus comes from the Jardin (the main plaza), passes by at the corner of the street. I take it home sometimes, when I have been walking all day and my feet are screaming at me. I like the bus, because each driver is always playing their own taste in music, and most times the bus has great friendly energy.
Other Things to Note
Some guests have asked us about the fountain in our courtyard. They ask about how much noise it makes. It is just a trickle.
It is set up on a timer and it shuts off at 10 pm.
Everyone who has enjoyed our house has been wonderful, friendly and very respectful of our Casa las Palomas. The house has various common areas where guests often find themselves sitting down and getting to know each other. My wife and I find this very charming and love getting to know our guests when we are there. Smoking is ok in the open areas of the house, like the rooftop terraces and the patio.
