I´m a retired Canadian who loves San Miguel de Allende, has an appreciation for art and culture and has travelled extensively throughout Mexico.
Willa's home is unique and beautiful, with architectural details that make it very Mexican yet filled with light. The antique doors are stunning as is the private garden, a place of beauty and serenity. Willa was a wonderful host and provided extensive information about both the history of San Miguel and the special places not to be missed.
The kitchenette does not really lend itself to preparation of meals other than breakfast/lunch but I understand that renovations are planned to make the kitchenette more convenient. However, restaurants are plentiful and wonderful. The house is located on a hill which affords beautiful views from the rooftop terrace. The walk back from Centro is only for strong walkers, but cabs are very inexpensive. A wonderful stay, thanks Willa!
Tom and I stayed at Willa's house for 10 days. The place is on a quiet street with an easy walk to the centre of town. The house itself is lovely with great views of the city. Our room opened on to a walled garden filled with beautiful plants. The room was comfortable and it was great to have our own bathroom. We also had use of a kitchenette where we could prepare simple meals.
Willa and Susan were very helpful and welcoming. They provided a lot of valuable information on San Miguel de Allende and surrounding area.
Willa es una anfitriona muy atenta y servicial, nos estaba esperando para explicarnos detalladamente los detalles de los servicios. La casa es muy iluminada, y soleada, con una vista maravillosa de San Miguel de Allende!! Está caminando a 15 mins del centro. La casa está decorada con muy buen gusto y la limpieza es excelente. Pasamos un lindo fin de semana
Amazing place and great host!
Amazing house with plenty of space to spend a great weekend in San Miguel. The garden, terrace and roof are amazing spots to either read a book or have a few beers with friends while enjoying the view. Last but not least, Willa's hospitality is unbeatable!
I stayed in Willa's private guest suite for ten days. The purpose of my visit to San Miguel de Allende was business, unfortunately a bit stressful. Willa's peaceful, tastefully designed house with a lush, secluded garden was a welcome respite from my work. And Willa, a gracious, generous host, added to the air of peace and tranquility.
The house is just about perfect for a visit to San Miguel as it combines extraordinary privacy on a quiet, out-of-the-way hillside street with a spectacular panoramic view of the city and countryside below. I have stayed in more expensive places in town that cannot compare in quality and value to Willa's garden suite. I recommend it highly.
