Views include the Parroquia, Parque Juarez, with spectacular views of the Sierra Madre Mountains; nearly every window in the home has beautiful scenery to enhance the enjoyment of your visit! Yet, the location is near the Centro, Art Institute and everything else San Miguel has to offer.

About Lynn Donovan

Hello, my name is Lynn. I am the former owner of a very successful Commercial Real Estate Company in New Jersey which I recently sold. I have over 25 years of Commercial Real Estate experience and over 200 million dollars in personal sales. My expertise was in listing, contract negotiations, marketing and property development. I was all about business, however, I wanted to do something more creative and fun.

Back in 1998 while traveling from Kauai I had a conversation with a woman who was in the high end home vacation rental business. She had homes all over the world and this intrigued me. I started to research information and bought my first property in Goodyear, Az., Estrella Mountain Ranch; it is a custom home with a pool and spa with great views and privacy! I went on and purchased Poipu Villa Vista in Kauai, Hawaii with ocean, golf course, mountain and crater views and an international vacation home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with a rooftop deck and views of the entire city. Our latest purchase was in Lake Como, New Jersey it is a seaside community just a half block from the lake and eight blocks from the ocean.

Owning vacation properties gives me a chance to be creative in renovating and decorating these custom homes to correspond with thier locations. Our goal is to have the stay for our guests become a special and unique experience and create memories for them that they will cherish forever. We live in a stressful world and each property has a calming effect that our guests love. They let us know we have achieved this by thier comments!

Lynn Donovan purchased this house in 2006

Why Lynn Donovan chose San Miguel de Allende

San Miguel de Allende is a very unique and quaint town. It's architecture is amazing with homes dating back to the 15th century when Spanish Conquistadors dominated the area. It is consistentley rated by assorted travel magazines as a 'top must see' destination. It was accepted by Unesco World Heritage Centre in 2008.

The art and culture this area offers is incredible! The property has proximity to several hot spring locations and is near other popular destinations.

What makes this house unique

Location and views! This property is located in a neighborhood with other high end vacation and private homes. The veiws from all the rooms are just incredible! The rooftop terrace is huge and offers our guests incredible views and sitting area including a gas firepit! The dream kitchen has all high end appliances for our guests. The house also features gas fire places in the living room and both master suites. There is also a private walled in garden area with a fountain and tiled scene of san miguel in the backround!

Outstanding location and beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5
This home was everything described and more. It was in perfect condition upon arrival. The housekeeper (upon our request) had prepared a fabulous Mexican dinner. The management had shopped for us (at our request) and the fridge was stocked for us after a long trip. The view from the roof terrace is without a doubt one of the best of the downtown and it was especially beautiful during the Christmas season. San Miguel de Allende deserves all of the raves it has recently received. We enjoyed every minute. It is a fascinating city with a fascinating history. There is not a bad meal to be had and the city is welcoming and very safe.

Owner's Response: Casa Puesta del Sol is a special home. We are so happy that you could experience the views and the peace and warmth that our Casa has to offer. Everything in and around the home was chosen, hand picked in and around the area.
San Miguel is a special city and Sunset magazine has an article online in the January issue raving about how charming and quaint San Miguel de Allende is.
There is good reason Conde Nast Travel readers voted San Miguel de Allende the BEST city in the world to visit in 2013!!
It is a very safe city as well! No matter what we should never walk streets alone at night.
Please return and enjoy the beauty as you travel back in time to a more peaceful and slow paced time!

Great House

  • 5 of 5
I enjoyed my stay at Puesta del Sol and would recomend it to everyone. From the moment I walked in I felt right at home. If you want to cook the kitchen has everything you'd need but I can not say I used it much because San Miguel offers so many food choices. I loved the master bedroom/ bath and the guest room is beautiful too. All in all this is a wonderful vacation rental.

Couldn't Be More Pleased!

Couldn't Be More Pleased!

With many choices to choose from, WE LUCKED OUT!!! We had the best week. We went to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I had visited San Miguel while in college, 27 years earlier and had always wanted to take my husband. The home is in mint condition with every amenity. No expenses were spared in the construction, design and furnishings. We were spoiled with maid and garderner service! The walk to El Centro was so pleasant, not any trouble at all, even with me recuperating from a back and nerve injury. Taxis are affordable and easily accessible to get back to the house. The rooftop patio is an added bonus with beautiful sunsets and views! Having a Vonage US phone and high speed internet was also a blessing. Another huge blessing was working with Lynn. 5 stars, without hesitation.

A week in Casa Puesta del Sol

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week in San Miguel earlier this month and stayed in this beautiful house. The most memorable thing about San Miguel was the gorgeous views from the rooftop. I was literally up in the rooftop every single day I was there, whether early in the morning, or around sunset, or while enjoying a glass of wine under the stars.

The house itself is incredibly well designed. I always love houses with lots of natural light so I knew I'd like this house immediately. The colors are warm and fitting for Mexico and so are all the little decorative details. The rooms are spacious and the living area on the ground floor will easily accommodate a family or a group of friends traveling together. The kitchen is great as well. If you're looking to cook instead of eating out every night then this is the kitchen for you. There's also a little garden where you can choose to have brunch or of course the rooftop. I can't be effusive enough about the rooftop!

San Miguel itself is a charming little town and the center of town is within walking distance. I'd recommend walking into town then taking a cab back since those hills can be quite a challenge. Spend your day exploring the multiple churches and staring at the wood and iron work of old homes or inside the different private galleries in town. For excursions outside of the city Guanajuato, another UNESCO heritage site is only an hour and 15 mins by bus. And the Canada de la Virgen, half an hour from San Miguel, is worth seeing. There's also the hot springs at La Gruta. For shopping I recommend stopping by at the Artisans Market.

All in all my week at San Miguel was a wonderful one and Casa Puesta del Sol was a great house to stay at.

Killer Views, Every Comfort Imaginable, and Service With A Smile!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks at Puesta Del Sol at the start of our extended stay in San Miguel and found it hard to leave when it was time to move on. We were enchanted with the unparalleled views from the rooftop, enamored with the kitchen facilities (having reverse osmosis treated water is so convenient too), and simply delighted with the light and space of the home. And then there were the staff, Jorge the gardener and Azucena the maid/cook-- they were so discreet yet personable and really catered to our personalities and needs as if we were long lost family friends.

Sound too good to be true? It almost was.

Of course, there is one other small "benefit" I should mention-- the hill leading up to the house provided mandatory exercise each day to help work off the calories of living the good life in SMA but you can cheat and simply catch a cab back home too).

It's not often that a place delivers on everything it is represented to be, but this home certainly did, and provided us with a sensational start to our extended holiday.
