Overview

San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come share the colors, sights, sounds, charm, excitement, and classes in this artist town maintained as a historic, colonial landmark in Mexico with a large population of both visiting and residential Americans.

Four Bedrooms, study with a sofa bed, den with an inside table and cable TV in English and cable internet, outside dining room with a fountain, corner garden with a card table, rooftop garden with a view of the neighborhood, and a spectacular rooftop terrace with a view of La Parroquia.

Sleeps ten (five couples).

Four full baths, two half baths.

There are four bedrooms on different levels for privacy, each with screened windows, ceiling fans, dark curtains for summer, and heaters for winter, as well as American-sized beds with down pillows.

The inside den has cable internet, cable TV, American DVD player, VCR, fireplace, table for breakfast and games, and Sony music system.

Next to that is the picturesque outside covered dining room with fireplace, fountain, and garden of its own.

Up a short stair is the corner garden with a card table. Above that is the rooftop garden with mandarin and orange trees, roses and other flowers you can pick to grace your table, and places to sit, walk, and dream. The corner garden especially attracts hummingbirds.

Finally, via a conch-shell spiral staircase from the corner garden, and with a private entrance to the master bedroom, there is a study with doors opening onto the corner and rooftop gardens and a view of La Parroquia Church. A great place for reading and writing. There is a sound system in this room as well as the sofa bed and a large shower.

The uppermost rooftop terrace, up the second section of the spiral staircase, has one of the most spectacular views of San Miguel, La Parroquia Church, surrounding plains and mountains. Great location to watch the sunset. Has a table for evening meals and high chairs to kick back and watch the sun set.

The housekeeper is Veronica and is much loved by the regular visitors. She manages the assisting housekeeper and gardener and is available M-F and 1/2 day on Saturday. Clothes can be washed daily, except Sundays.

She loves to cook and will provide breakfast and lunch, with enough food for the evening, if desired (you provide the funds for food, Veronica will shop on her own or even take you along to see the markets). There is a Spanish-English cookbook, with the same recipes in each language, should you like. There are also classes on gourmet and Mexican cooking at the San Miguel schools.

The kitchen was recently remodeled with marble countertops, dishwasher, garbage disposal, gas oven and range, microwave, blender, and juicer. We have many appliances not available in other homes such as the pressurized water system, new water heater, and clothes washer and dryer.

The House is a five minute walk from El Jardin (the center of town for all the San Miguel activities) and is situated on a quiet residential street so you do not have to put up with late night revelers (bars do not close in San Miguel at night). While in San Miguel de Allende, you can go to the Tuesday market to see a Mexican bazaar, attend wine receptions in art galleries, take art classes at the Instituto or Belles Artes, hear classical music in the historic Angela Peralta Theatre, or go on the Famous Home Tour on Sunday mornings from the Biblioteca library to help other Americans raise funds for medical care for impoverished ranch children. People come from around the world for the art classes. There are also 8-9 Spanish language schools.

Or just stay in Casa DeMarco and read and relax. Restaurants in town are excellent, silver jewelry costs one-third less than in the United States, and getting a pair of the San Miguel women shoes is a must!

The in-town manager, Ricardo Vidargas, lives in San Miguel and knows much that can be helpful.

About Bill East

We, the owners, are a Dallas couple that have enjoyed our time off and treasure being able to visit areas that offer historical as well as cultural events.

My name is Bill, the manager and I will handle your reservations and contract request.

Bill East purchased this house in 2000

Why Bill East chose San Miguel de Allende

We fell in love with San Miguel when we first visited it, and like many others, bought our house on our first trip there. Spanish schools, art schools, art galleries, photographers, writers, and a lovely population of hard-working people who treasure their kids, churches, and their friends. There is so much to do and so, in a town that was founded in 1826. All local children learn both English and Spanish in school.

What makes this house unique

Breakfast in the covered dining room by the kitchen but outside is delightful. Dinner in the same place with a fire going in the fireplace. Drinks and appetizers on the top roof while watching the sunset each night. An average low of 55 degrees and an average high of 75 degrees in the spot called perpetual spring. We continue to update the casa and encourage your suggestions on how to make it better for you and others return visits.

Guestbook comments from the manager

.....We truly had a lovely stay, and while no one cooks like Maria, Veronica did a very nice job. My brother John went shopping at the market with her a couple of times, and he was in heaven!....

Lovely house in very quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This house was so much more than we had hoped for. The photos in the listing do not do it justice: it is all that and much more. The view from the upper roof garden (yes, there are two roof gardens) is just fabulous.

Veronica keeps the house absolutely spotless: fresh towels and (I think) fresh sheets every day are an absolute treat. Insider tip: let her decide what to make for breakfast!

Absolutely the only downside of this place is the walk uphill back to the house: don't forget that you are at 6500 feet above sea level. Your lungs will remind you! Fortunately, it's only about 50 pesos (currently ~ 3 USD) for a taxi: highly recommended, especially in the heat of the afternoon.

Comfortable and spacious home with magical rooftop view

  • 5 of 5

We spent part of the past two winters at Casa DeMarco and will be returning next year for another six weeks.

The house is roomy, well appointed, with great mattresses and excellent linens. There have been recent upgrades to the furnishings to keep the house fresh and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked and kept immaculate by Veronica, the delightful and capable cook/housekeeper. She kept us with a daily supply of fresh squeezed orange juice, fruit platters and guacamole. Casa DeMarco is in a quiet neighborhood by San Miguel standards (though up a steep hill) and well located, with beautiful views of La Parroquia and the surrounding town. Riccardo, the house manager, and the house owner are cooperative and very helpful.

Amazing home in all aspects!

  • 5 of 5

Casa DeMarco was even more than what we could have imagined. A beautiful balance of outdoor and accessable indoor living. The charm and character of the architecture, tile work and decor was amazing. Spacious yet homey feel. We traveled with our five children who also appreciated the beauty of the home and could find places to have quiet time. While we kept them off the uppermost deck, the main rooftop terrace was a wonderful place to enjoy the fresh air, views and to stop to smell the flowers. Veronica and Guadaloupe were fantastic with breakfast preparation, cleaning and laundry. They were also patient and understanding of our limited Spanish. The location couldn't have been better as was within walking distance to the Parroquia, Park Juarez and the San Antonio district. From the neighboring rooster to the resident donkey down the next road, cobblestone streets, friendly coffee shop and convenience store owners, we felt this area was safe, picturesque and full of culture.

I spent new year's vacation with my extended family in Casa de Marco. We all had a wonderful time and the house was everything we could expect: great location, wonderful views from the terraces and excellent service from the cook and housekeeper. it was easy and convenient to make all the arrangements with the owner.

Definitely recommendable.

Absolutely delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Our three-week stay in Casa de Marco was absolutely delightful. It met and went well beyond our expectations. This was the sixth time we’ve rented a house or apartment in San Miguel de Allende, so we are confident in saying the living quarters rank among the best in the city. This is the first place we have stayed that we did not feel the need to request or purchase anything (beyond food) to make our stay comfortable. Casa de Marco was truly a home away from home.

The views from Casa de Marco are spectacular. Three of our party saw their first shooting star while on the “middle terrace.” The sounds, while new to most of our group, became part of what’s good about staying in San Miguel. The neighbor’s rooster became known and loved as “Hector” despite his confusion over when sunrise really occurs. Occasional fireworks, church bells, trash-truck clangers, distant drums and bugles and even a thunderstorm added to the symphony.

Veronica, Maria and Augustino helped in so many ways to make our stay fulfilling and comfortable. They were efficient, friendly and made every effort to understand and meet our needs. Veronica prepared several meals for us and her cooking skills were much appreciated, especially her homemade flan. Our youngest granddaughter especially enjoyed sharing time with Veronica’s son and Maria’s grandchildren.

The occasion for our gathering of children and grandchildren, several at a time over our stay, was a belated 21st birthday celebration held 54 years after the actual 21st birthday. The honoree was alone in Mexico City on his real 21st, with no one to help him celebrate. The comfort and luxury of Casa de Marco helped make this 75th birthday celebration a joyful experience for all of us. Many of our guests who were visiting Mexico for the first time fell in love with San Miguel de Allende and came away convinced that they will return.
