Heather's casita was exactly as described in the heart of the oldest part of this remarkable UNESCO Heritage Site. The out door kitchen was magic. The home was comfortable, light lit, and warm throughout. The second floor bedroom, with its private vine-entwined courtyard, amazing views of the city and moonlit night nights was stunning. Heather was welcoming, warm, informative, always available, yet non obtrusive. Secure internet was perfect.
moonlight nights, chruches and historic builsings was awesome. The quyaint yet comfortable living room was perfedt - and that it lead onto the outdoor kitchen/dining was even better.
This is one of those places you want to tell people about and NOT tell them about! What a find. Great location, Heather is wonderful, the ambience is relaxing, I wanted to move in!
Our host was very gracious and welcoming. Heather took the time to provide us information on the local area and her property is gorgeous and in a quiet neighborhood. We would not hesitate to recommend a stay here in SMDA.
Heather and her sidekick Hero greeted me with a warm smile and a generous heart. As we made our way through the garden passing orange trees and stone sculptures, under arches of flowering vines and around a bubbling fountain I knew I was in for a treat.
At the top of the stairs, the guest house was awaiting me, sparkling clean, inviting and well appointed. My thoughtful host had gone marketing that day, leaving a big bowl of fresh fruit, coffee and the fixins' for an omelet my first morning in San Miguel. On the table I found a packet with a current local paper, a map and info, and detailed notes to help me get accustomed to the house and neighborhood.
The house was completely charming. I especially loved the tiled bathroom with cupola ceiling, and the open air kitchen where I sipped my morning coffee amongst flowering vines and hummingbirds. I enjoyed a marvelous view of the Parroquia and city beyond from the roof top bedroom. Each morning I opened my eyes to see the rising sun illuminate the pink stone church...an amazing way to wake up!
Exploring was easy from here, with the center of town a pleasant 15 min walk away, the lovely park Juarez and the Instituto de Allende only 10 min walk down cobbled streets.
My sincerest thanks to you Heather, for your generosity, your many extra kindnesses, and sharing your very special home.
Heather met us at the door and welcomed us like we were family. The place was exactly as advertised and tastefully decorated creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The neighbors are friendly and always smiling. The next time we visit San Miguel the only place for us is Heathers !!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 month stay at Heather’s beautiful garden home.
The house is set back several hundred feet from the road and secured behind a privacy wall, so there is a definite sense of safety. It was also nice being a bit away from the loud noises of centro but only 10-12 minute walk into town via Pila Seca, 8 minute walk to Zacateros/Ancha San Antonio, and less than a 5 minute walk to Mercado San Juan Dios. There’s also an awesome fish restaurant (Mariscolandia) and a bakery just a block away, and a handful of other convenience stores in the immediate neighborhood.
The street, Del Vergel, is definitely the nicest street in Colonia San Antonio, lined with trees making it very tranquil and quiet. Her house and garden are immaculate due to her amazing gardener and housekeeper. The outside kitchen made for beautiful breakfasts, lunches, and dinners! We called it our “tree house” since the open 2nd floor kitchen feels like you are living among the trees and birds.
Some of the highlights of the apartment are the plethora of nice towels and sheets, purified water thorough out the house, a washer AND DRYER (!!), private internet modem just for the apartment, fully stocked kitchen, full sized refrigerator, lots of great light in every room, and ceiling fans in all the rooms.
Heather takes pride in her house and makes sure that everything is in working order, if anything needs attention someone is there to attend to the issue immediately. In addition to having the wonderful opportunity to stay in such a lovely house, we also enjoyed getting to know Heather and her pets and are sure you’ll love her place too!
We LOVED staying at Heather's place; it was just as beautiful as the images show (and more so). Heather was a wonderful host—helpful and welcoming, but allowing for plenty of privacy and independence too. I felt that I could turn to her with questions any time, and when I did, she was a wealth of knowledge!
The space is truly fantastic; the rooftop bedroom was so unique! Sun-drenched and up in the treetops, it had a treehouse feel (except with all the amenities). I relaxed (and exercised and did yoga) in the rooftop patio with the birds most mornings, with lovely views of Central SMA—and I could see the lights of town twinkling at me from bed at night. I also really enjoyed the outdoor kitchen, which even during a downpour, was quite protected, the best of inside-outside living. Internet was great (important as I was doing work while in SMA), and the location was ideal; in a real neighborhood set just a bit away from the center of town, it was safe, comfortable and convenient. This is my fave AirBnB experience to date. Thank you Heather!
What a fabulous place.This beautiful ,quiet nabourhood was just what we were looking for.Heather's beautiful lodgings are an oasis within the town.A short 10 minute walk gets you to the market,El Jardin,or any place you might want to visit.The apartment is very well equipped and very comfortable.We couldn't have asked for anything more.Heather was the perfect host,always greeting you with smiles and (website hidden) one could be more (email hidden)eph and I would not hesitate to go back.Thank-you Heather.
Heather's place is an oasis of nature. From the wonderful, fully equipped outdoor kitchen, you can watch butterflies, hummingbirds, and many other birds amongst the flowered trees. In the upstairs bedroom, with its surrounding windows, you can get a panoramic view of the catheral and the hills of SMA. You also are awakened every morning by singing birds.
Heather is a wonderful host, and meeting her surely enriched our visit to SMA.
This is a lovely place to just be. The beautiful garden was in full bloom and we enjoyed bird watching from the sunny outdoor kitchen. Heather is a kind and caring hostess who made us feel very welcome. Even her two little dogs and Murphy, the cat, got into the act. It's the first time I have ever arrived anywhere to find a supply of food in the fridge and staple items in the cupboard. There are other things there, too, that are often missing - face cloths, plugs for the sinks, good pots WITH LIDS and sharp knives. The stove & fridge are exceptional and the beds are very comfortable. The private rooftop patio is a great place to lounge. The whole place gets a very thorough cleaning once a week. We liked the location, too. There are interesting neighborhoods to explore with good markets and restaurants. I hope I can return there one day. It would be like coming home.
Thank you, Carole. And you would be welcomed back like family. Please stay in contact. Heather
Heather is the perfect hostess to make your experience in San Miguel one to remember. As a long time Mexican resident, she is completely bi-lingual . When needed,. she can make virtually anything happen, and solve the unsolveable. She goes above and beyond anything one might imagine to make sure her guests have an exceptional and singular experience.
The apartment sits above the lush gardens and you feel as though you're sitting in a tree house, Everything you could possibly need is there, away from the tourist noise and traffic, but oh so close to everything you might want to see and do.
Whether this is your first time in San Miguel or you are a regular visitor, you can't go wrong by selecting this lovely property.
