Beneficiencia 42 is an absolutely gorgeous home. The photos do not do justice to this breathtaking property. The staff is outstanding and worked well beyond our expectations. The location is prime; just a few minutes walk from the Jardin, the Parroquia, and the Mercado de Artesanias. We were in town for a wedding and had lots of friends staying at Airbnbs. Our home was by far the most beautiful. We fell in love with San Miguel de Allende, and are already planning our return visit. We will certainly rent this charming home during our future stays in SMA.
The hacienda was impeccably maintained, magnificent gardens, devine chef, housekeeper that made our stay heavenly.
I can't wait to return. I extended my stay 10 days.
Mi familia y yo tuvimos una estadía muy placentera en casa de Jod. El personal fué muy amable y atento a nuestras solicitudes. La casa es una maravilla de arte colonial, y mucho más amplia y cómoda de lo que imaginábamos.
La localidad es excelente, a solo unas cuadras del jardín principal de la ciudad.
Recomiendo ampliamente esta opción de alojamiento en esta bella ciudad.

Dear Denis...thank you for pointing out the absence of house instructions in spanish....I will remedy that as soon as I return to San Miguel...Jod
such a great place ...
Jod & Richard's house has quite likely ruined it for all other vacation rentals from this point on. As amazing as it looks in photos, they do not do it justice. They layout is perfect for families, with plenty of shared space and bedrooms...also perfect for groups that want a little more privacy. There are no less than three beautiful dining areas that can accomodate 8 or more people. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. More showers than you could use in one trip, full bathtub for those who like a soak. Rooftop dining, views of the valley, pool, hotub all impeccably maintained. Where do I stop?
The staff was warm and helpful. We hated to say goodbye to them! Lettie did our laundry and made up all the rooms every day - we actually started to feel a little guilty at the royal treatment. Juana cooked beautiful breakfasts and lunches, and treated us to surprises of homemade limeade and jamaica punches when we arrived home from long days of walking. Hector took us on some wonderful driving tours of the local area, and was johnny on the spot when we had questions about the property.
Finally - Jod was a wonderful hostess. She was forthcoming with all the information we needed, so there were no lingering concerns or questions by the time we departed the states for Mexico. Would not HESITATE to rent from them again.
My friends and I stayed here recently for four nights over my brother's wedding weekend.
Jod was more than helpful during the lead up to our visit, helping with transfers and information on the town.
On arrival, as others have mentioned, we were gobsmacked at the beauty of the house. We ran around excitedly exploring all the rooms, and arrived just in time to watch sunset from the roof. Stunning.
The photos really do not do it justice. There are so many areas to gather in, you easily be as a group at one of the large tables or couch areas, or have some quiet time on one of the terraces, by the pool or one of the living rooms.
The staff were friendly and helpful, the house was always immaculate, the rooms were spacious and the meals were delicious.
I cannot recommend this villa more highly. We loved every minute and truly wish we'd had longer in San Miguel to enjoy the beauty of not only the town, but the house as well. I had several family members who had also hired houses around the town for the weekend, and we all rated our villa as the nicest and most comfortable by far.
We all cannot wait to return.
The house is beautiful, spacious and very well maintained. We loved every single space of this house and we had a wonderful time here. The staff house:Oli, Lety and Héctor are very nice and helpful. They keep the house immaculate! Jod, the owner is a fine person and very attentive to all details. I highly recommend this property to everyone, great value guaranteed!!
My family and I stayed here over Christmas this year and had such a wonderful experience. The house is stunning and Jod was a pleasure to work with- everything was easy to arrange. The house staff is so kind and helpful and prepared us wonderful breakfast and kept the house looking amazing. We would highly recommend the Spanish Colonial Villa with pool and spa to anyone- a true gem in San Miguel de Allende!
After a very long day of travel we arrived weary and ready to sleep but as we opened the door into the entry way, all of us dashed around looking at all the different levels of the house calling out to one another to "come see". The online photos of the house are good but the house is even better which is not always the case in rentals.
One of the great features is how easy it is to both gather together in different spaces and to also find some private space both outside and in. This house can accommodate a large group easily.
Location is great.
Beautifully designed rooms and artwork throughout with very comfortable beds, couches and dining areas on every level.
Rooftop living area was a treat.
Jod the owner was easy to interact with, responded quickly and with care.
The staff of Ollie, Lettie and Hector were extremely helpful and keep the house and it's visitors feeling very cared for.
I want to recommend this home to everyone I know.
We (my husband and our 2yr old along with several family members and friend who joined us during our stay) had the most amazing month-long stay at Jod's stunning property in San Miguel. The pictures don't even do it justice. Everything was impeccably clean throughout our stay. The gardens were so well-maintained and lovely. The pool was too cold to use (and costly to heat), but we enjoyed lounging by it anyway. The outdoor living room was our favorite space to enjoy the sounds (fireworks, roosters, festivities) of SMA. The staff was fantastic and the house is very well-equipped with everything you could need and all the modern conveniences (vonage phone, satellite tv, high-speed internet) that you might not expect. The location is perfect - a short 5-10 min walk (uphill) to the Jardin in the center. Jod was a pleasure to deal with and quickly returned every inquiry we had and gave us great advice for places to go; etc. We would not hesitate to return to this place on our next trip to SMA. We miss it already!
Great guests! Happy to have them again!
Thank you for staying with us!
Jod land her family are a nice bunch and left the loft in good condition to clean up. They communicated well and were on time. Jod expected a more family-oriented, private unit, but as I told her before she booked - my unit is a contemporary open-concept loft. It's not family friendly. I would recommend Jod pick the appropriate housing for her needs.
It was a pleasure that i welcome Jod and Richard in my flat. A couple of friendly traveler with a great autonomy. I can only recommand them. They' ve left the apartment in a goog condition. See you soon....
