We had a wonderful time in your house. Quick and good hosting experience!
We had the most fabulous experience staying at your absolutely gorgeous home! The house was comfortable, practical and perfectly unique. We made use of the kitchen and the tortilleria/mercado nearby which gave us a very "local" feel which we enjoy. Enrique was friendly and helpful and even drove us to town once. The restaurants, sites, shops and restaurants were out of this world! We had a perfect trip!
La casa esta muy bonita decorada con un estilo muy mexicano , enrique el cuidador es sumamente amable e incluso nos llevo en su camioneta a la iglesia , lo unico es que la calle en la que se encuentra la casa no es tan linda pero en 10 mins estas en el centro! Gracias gary y katia la pasamos muy bien !
We rented Gary & Katia's gem of a casa this past weekend to use as a base for visiting family in nearby Dolores Hidalgo and the stay was excellent. Gary was very helpful with staying in contact via email and answering all of our pre-arrival questions. The house itself was perfect for our needs, and the size and comfort of the patio made it possible for us to have several large family gatherings. An added bonus to the house is Enrique, the caretaker, who is incredible helpful and personable. The neighborhood is a bit removed from the center of SMA, but it's not too far, walkable for those who like to walk and easy cab ride otherwise. There's also a tortillaria at the top of the street which was super convenient.
La cosa nos encantó!! Es exactamente igual a la fotos !
Enrique nos atendió súper bien , es muy amable. Estuvo al pendiente de nosotros en todo momento.
El lugar donde esta situada la casa no es muy bonito. la ventaja es q estábamos a 10 minutos del centro en coche
Definitivamente si recomendaría esta casa
We were lucky to spend four months in Gary's and Katia's casa and were very sorry to leave. In short, it's something of a paradise of birds, flowers, and art. The courtyard is large and meticulously maintained by the caretaker Enrique (who is himself the soul of kindness). Hummingbirds, exotic succulents, fountains--and at night all of it lit beautifully. The house is wonderfully curated, every cranny and corner filled with art. That said, it is simultaneously cozy enough that we never felt worried that our children (6 and 3) would break anything. The casa sits behind high walls in a Mexican neighborhood overlooking the city (the views are incredible, especially at night). One of the pleasures of our stay was walking out to the local produce stand and tortilleria and then walking down the hill to the centro. Which means you can have the best of both worlds--live in a total comfort in a Mexican neighborhood. Over our four months we visited at least a dozen homes of expats and a few locals. If there is a lovelier casa in all of SMA, we didn't see it. This is a stunning home, and we can't wait to go back.
Las fotos de la casa corresponden 100% es una preciosa casa estilo mexicano, con detalles en cada rincón.
Es espaciosa y con un patio grandisimo y muy bien cuidado, esta muy comoda, tiene de todo.
Enrique es muy servicial y siempre esta dispuesto a atenderte.
Muy muy recomendable!
Nosotros seguro repetimos.
This house was perfect, thank you very much!
We wanted a house to host my family on my wedding weekend in San Miguel. The patio area is amazing and really spacious. But the most important value here is Enrique's help. We had his help all the time! what a wonderful and helpgul person. Thank you Gary and Katia, I hope to meet you one day.
I really recommend this house.
Our San Miguel visit was made all the more fantasti due to our place of residence. It truly is a "gem," as advertised, with all the comforts of home (they thought of everything). My husband and I stayed for three weeks, and felt right at home after the first day and after our 21st day we hated to leave. It was thrilling to listen to the many birds in the morning and evening and gratifying to pick oranges for breakfast and mandarins for a quick snack. The touch of the artist was evident throughout the house and was enjoyed anew each time we entered a room. Definitely a return visit is in order.
We spent 3 days in San Miguel and stayed in this house and there is nothing to complain about it. The garden a little oasis where we spent a lot of our time. Enrique a very nice and helpful housekeeper who was always available in case of need. We highly recommend this location in San Miguel. The only sad thing was that we had to leave!
We have no words to describe how great, warm and amazing Gary and Katia are!!! So easy and smooth to deal with- happy people! Incredibly inquisitive and fresh!!!They are the perfect guests, easy to communicate with and friendly. They left the apartment in a perfect shape. I would definitely recommend them and host them again. We wish them all the best! Tanja and Alex
