The location is superb and Barbara is a lovely and gracious hostess. The only complaint I have about this property would be the lack of cable TV. Otherwise, it is fine
Barbara's place is beautiful and in addition she is the best San Miguel tour guide - so impressed with her help with transport and thorough guide to San Miguel! The space is beautifully furnished and provides everything you could possibly need for a pleasant stay in an excellent location.
This was truly the most relaxing vacation we have had in some time. The location was excellent - easy walking distance to the center of the city. Our hostess, Sam, was so generous with her ideas and hospitality - and Joey, the wonderful Italian water dog, made our stay even better! When we return to San Miguel, we will certainly come back to this location!
An excellent small studio apartment on a ground floor courtyard - very quiet. Located within easy walking distance to Benito Juarez park, very lovely, and the Jardin at the center of town. There was construction going on at the house during our stay, limiting use of the garden, so check with Barbara to make sure that it is finished.
Otherwise highly recommended - Barbara is a fine host and gave us some excellent local recommendations.
Super-pleasant light-filled apartment in a great location. Close to town, the Instituto Allende, and the Saturday organic market. Lovely garden. Barbara is a nice person and pleasant hostess. I really enjoyed my nine-day stay!
I want to come back!
Barbara's place is as magical as SMA. Located in a safe, beautiful and very well located neighborhood, I had pleasure to spend time in the patio to write, share a glace of wine and rest.
I staid downstairs, where the design is beautiful, I felt at home. Everything was perfect and Barbara did her best to be sure everything was fine (it is more than pleasant to found a basket of fresh fruits at your arrival).
Aldama is one of the best streets in the town, and I had no issue in walking in the middle of the night after a dinner or party.
I hope I will have soon the opportunity to come back, share more times with Barbara and more than everything, feel the energy of SMA and its magic.
Many thanks, et à bientôt !
Barbara is a lovely hostess and has a wonderful cassita (or two) for anyone lucky enough to book it. The location could not be better and Barbara goes out of her way to assure her guests enjoy their visit. I'm so glad I'm going back in February, 2014.
This is the ‘room of ones own’ that everyone dreams of - a room of light, air, beauty and peace. My wish would be to replicate this studio at my own house. I would only go out to gather food, books and art supplies. It is the perfect space in which to read, write, paint, sleep and dream in.
Barbara is just the person that you have always wanted in a host - lovely, kind, generous and in love with the city in which she lives. Her artistic aesthetic is seen everywhere on the property. Her home is her art and I feel so fortunate that she is willing to share it with those of us who come to San Miguel. I felt both protected and independent during my perfect two-week stay.
I will most certainly return to Jardin Ciervo Vililante on my next visit to San Miguel de Allende and highly recommend it to newcomers and return visitors alike.
This apartment was immaculate and beautifully decorated, and a very convenient walk to the center of town and a large park. The garden offers a lovely refuge. Barbara was very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. A beautiful, private spot in a lovely town.
As soon as Barbara opens the door and welcomes you into her home a feeling of peace and tranquility immediately descends upon you. It is evident that her home, garden and casitas are a labour of love. The studio apartment that I stayed in was an absolutely amazing space, like wow - what a gift! Barbara's home reflects who she is and she is as amazing as the space she has created. I highly recommend staying at Jardin Ciervo Vigilant.
Barbara was a wonderful guest. Very interesting conversation, respectful of the place. She hosts, so she knows what it is like from both sides. Again, great guest,
Barbara is a fellow Airbnb host(ess), so she knows the drill quite well on being a good guest. She was quiet, clean and orderly, and very respectful of normal house protocol. She stayed for 3 weeks, but the time flew by. She made and shared a delicious lamb dinner one night..!
Barbara and Sara were gentle and quiet and easy going. They fit right in and did their own thing. Barbara rents in San Miguel so that was interesting and informative as she has had more experience with Airbnb. Wish I had chatted more with Sara. Before I knew it they were gone, off to Yelapa.
Barbara was a lovely guest! She figured out the somewhat slim public transportation system in Houston with virtually no assistance. I felt she treated my home as if it were her own.
Barbara was a character. She and her companion fit in very well with the island vibe. I wish they could have stayed longer, and I look forward to their return visit.
Barbara was a great guest , she came by just for a night .
She is comunicative and uncomplicated and I am sorry that her stay was so short
Barbara was great to have here. She communicated very well and was very kind. We hope she comes back soon and would recommend her as a guest very highly.
Barbara stayed at my place for just over a week, and was a wonderful guest. So pleasant, and so easy to host, and left everything in perfect order during and at the end of her stay. Will miss her! To other AirBnB hosts: Highly Recommend!
