I like to travel, take pictures, meet people, enjoy food and feel I am alive!

Sergio is a very kind host. Not very punctual but compensates with attention. This was the last available place of his listings so I think it's not his best but still great for a couple. I would recommend it specially in summer since San Miguel is kinda cold and the studio is a little bit cool. Do visit the town and listen to Sergio's advice as he'll direct you to the nicest places to visit. I'd definitely stay with him again though in a different apartment. Luckily he's got many.
Super fácil, super puntual, el lugar esta super limpio y super tranquilo :)!
We totally loved our "comfortable room in Casa Mexicana" and it was all that the description promised and more! We wanted a truly authentic Mexican experience and we got it! Casa Mexicana is in Bario San Luis Rey, a ten minute bus ride out of San Miguel; it's a typical Mexican neighbourhood, San Miguel style. The cobblestone streets are lined with plain, high, walls of stone or brick; each home has a wood or metal gate that opens into the courtyard and a different world.
Casa Mexicana is enchanting - the courtyard is sunny and bright, fragranced by orange blossom and features the biggest, healthiest agave I've ever seen. Table and chairs under the orange trees offer an inviting spot for any meal but we especially enjoyed breakfast out there. The house is charming - immaculately clean, tastefully furnished, with some very handsome older pieces. The "comfortable room" is on the second floor, up beautifully tiled terra cotta stairs which exit onto an exterior walkway, with wrought iron railings, pots of succulents, a bench for reading (or just dreaming) and another set of stairs to the roof, from which we enjoyed some spectacular sunsets. Our room was bright and welcoming; a double bed and a twin, both very comfortable; a small but delightful bathroom with a San Miguel "skylight" and colourful Mexican tilework that extended into the shower. A bonus was a closet - no having to live out of my suitcase!
Sergio was super helpful, he and his wife showed us around the neighhbourhood and made sure we knew where the stores were and how to use the bus system - the bus stop is literally right outside the door. We spent time in "Centro" enjoying the plaza, the church, the shops and the markets and museums. We took day trips to Guanajuato and Dolores Hidalgo and steeped ourselves in the history of these places - I could imagine that I was in the crowd outside the church in Dolores, in 1810, where Fray Hidalgo issued el Grito de Independencia! And when we returned "home", Sergio and his lovely wife were often there to help us as we tried to describe our adventures in Spanish. They were wonderful hosts, we have not one single complaint - except that we wish we'd booked for longer!
Upon arriving Sergio was very patient through out the whole checking in process as we arrived a little late. The house is absolutely perfect and very close to the historic center about a 5 minute walk. A huge patio entrance and a very charming kitchen and bedrooms!
The house has wonderful terraces and it is kept in impeccable conditions. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this location and could not have asked for a better host. Sergio made sure all of our needs were met and exceeded them. Plenty of fresh linens and clean white towels. The bathrooms all have modern fixtures and work perfectly.
If I were to come back to San Miguel, I would definitely contact Sergio. I greatly recommend this listing! Thanks Sergio!
I travelled to San Miguel with my dad and a good friend, Sheila; Sheila and I had never been to Mexico before.
Our experience with Sergio and at Casa Vainilla were very positive.
Before our arrival, I corresponded with Sergio via email, and he answered every email I sent him in a thorough and timely matter.
Upon arrival, Sergio met us at the bus station in San Miguel, where we followed his car (in our car) to get to the casita. I'm sure we would have gotten lost otherwise! He helped us get settled and then he gave us a short walking tour of San Miguel.
Sergio was just as lovely upon departure. He helped us with our bags and encouraged us to come back soon! You will not find a better host!
With regard to the casita, we stayed in 'Vainilla' and were very pleased with the cleanliness, décor, and location to the city centre. There were also little details that made the stay special (e.g. a CD of Mexican music left out for us to listen to, etc.) Our stay here was virtually problem-free!
I would certainly recommend 'Vainilla' to people traveling to San Miguel, and I would - without reservation - recommend working with Sergio to find a place to stay.
We made a last minute decision to go to San Miguel de Allende for New Years and after looking at several great options sent a message to Sergio. He was the perfect liaison, not only because of his super quick replies, but also because he really went out of his way to make sure we found a place in San Miguel that suited our needs and budget.
He and his wife greeted us at the property (no trouble finding it thanks to (website hidden) Maps) and we had a great and really comfortable stay that we won't easily forget. We loved the apartment, it was tastefully furnished and had every little detail taken care of (bathroom soap, clean towels, even drinking water!) Sergio was a very attentive host, was always reachable by phone and happy to help us wherever he could.
We can highly recommend both a visit to San Miguel and a stay with Sergio!
Sergio is the best. I stayed in San Miguel de Allende for one month and he found me an amazing place that happened to be available, so I got it for a fraction of the usual price. We really became friends and he is so personable and trustworthy and caring that I can't say enough good things about him. He is now working as a property manager and has places all over SMA available. He is attentive when you need something and an incredibly helpful person. For sure, go with Sergio!
My husband and I stayed in San Miguel de Allende for 5 days. We enjoyed this very much! Just want to give to Sergio my most sincere appreciation for his assistance, he was a great host to us!. We stayed in a very nice apartment in a great location! The space and privacy were a plus!! Very close to El Centro as this was important to us. He made this possible to us and we are very greatful to Sergio for this!. With no doubt, on our return to this magical town we will contact Sergio for our stay in San Miguel de Allende! Thank you Sergio for everything!
Sergio was a very conscientious and helpful host. We were upgraded from Magic villa to another very nice apartment near Centro at no extra cost. This other apartment was fully stocked with appliances, had a nice kitchen, and we were provided a few munchies to tied us over after we arrived. Overall, it was very comfortable. Included was a pool & weight room in the complex. It was furnished in an international/contemporary style. Sergio also provided a cell phone pre-loaded with his phone number, taxis, etc. He called a couple of times over the week to see how we were doing which was nice. Sergio was available to help us whenever needed! We had a very pleasant stay and hope to return to SMA soon!
Sergio made me feel as though I was family or at least a good friend in his care and concern for my wellbeing and enjoyment while in San Miguel. He lent me his cell phone to use and made sure I had his phone number. He made sure I knew how to get around and shared several restaurants and shops he thought (and was correct) I would want to visit.
The home in which I stayed was spectacular and beautifully cared for, close enough to walk to Centro but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing.
All though I'm fairly independent, I'm 60 years old and was visiting on my own. I could,nt have felt more welcome and taken care of.
Muchisimo gracias Sergio for helping make my visit such a wonderful experience.
Sergio was the perfect guest-relaxed,considerate,engaging,interesting and very helpful! He appreciated what we created in our home and enjoyed our coffee-complimenting us for everything. Sergio loves life and has a great curiosity. These traits are wonderful in a guest as it makes you you just want to share with them even more!
We have become friends in these few days and we look forward to when he next visits with hope he will bring his beautiful wife with him!
We highly recommend Sergio as a airbnb guest! Cate and Judson
I loved Sergio, his beautiful wife and wonderful mother and mother in law! I want them to be friends forever.
Sergio was the perfect host! It's obvious that he loves the city and truly cares about your experience in San Miguel. He gave me a great orientation to the city...how to get around, where the buses go, what to see, where to eat. Even better though, he was a great guy! Another reviewer said it perfectly--you see his warmth, trustworthiness, integrity, positivity, intelligence, and humour. We became friends instantly and shared great conversations in the mere 2 days I was in San Miguel. I would recommend Sergio to any traveler looking to have a great experience in this beautiful Mexican city!
I've known Sergio for several months now. We met when he was taking care of our neighbours house and their Airbnb clients. We quickly became friends and went for long walks in the surrounding countryside of San Miguel. The first thing that became apparent for me in getting to know Sergio is that he loves people! But as we spent more time together, I discovered his other great qualities: his warmth, trustworthiness, integrity as a person, positiveness, intelligence and humour. I would recommend Sergio to anyone contemplating renting one of his rooms on Airbnb. You will be very well attended to! In short, I can't think of anyone better suited to host Airbnb clients as Sergio! Go to him with complete confidence.
Me he hospedado con Sergio dos veces. En ambas el alojamiento ha sido de primer nivel, asi como el trato considerado que brinda Sergio. Eficaz anfitrion, atento a las necesidades del huesped, interesado en que las personas que recibe se sientan lo mejor posible. La gran simpatia que Sergio despliega va de la mano con su seriedad de compromiso con el cliente. Lo considero garantía de certeza personal y de que el alojamiento será excelente, porque él se mueve en ese nivel, así como de recibir un excelente trato. Lo recomiendo a toda persona que desee pasar desde un día hasta años en san Miguel.
