¿Que es?

Casa Piña SMA is one of San Miguel de Allende’s finest colonial homes furnished with period antiques and original artwork. This three-bedroom and four-bathroom downtown villa sleeps up to six guests and is attended to by a courteous, diligent and trustworthy staff that provide personalized service for guests and the luxury of total leisure.

Experienceing the best of both worlds

Casa Piña SMA’s front door is just half a block from the center of town, offers unparalleled access to the idilic life of el Jardin and convenient strolls to all points beyond in the centro historico. Yet behind the thick adobe walls of its original facade guests will experience a rare form of peace, privacy and privilege.

Dining al fresco and sunsets from the mirador

Casa Piña SMA’s focal point is the central patio with a large stone fountain in the middle. The south-facing “outdoor” living room and dining room is a year-round favourite with all guests. It fills with warm winter sunlight and remains cool and shady in the summer as the sun travels further north. It is a lovely spot to spend the entire day, to entertain or host a comida with guests. Another table in the cactus garden at the rear of the house provides an al-fresco dining option.

At sunset, the rooftop mirador is the best spot in the house to start the evening in style or to reflect on the day’s events as the sky lights up in a coulurful display and sun disappears behind the distant mountains.

Master bedroom suite and guest bedrooms

At Casa Piña SMA, the three widely-separated bedrooms over three stories provide privacy, tranquility and rest.

The second-floor master bedroom suite has a huge boveda, or domed, ceiling and provides guests with total comfort and space. It includes a king-sized bed, an adjacent, private, outdoor sun deck, two walk-in closets, and two en-suite bathrooms. Banks of south facing french doors on either side of a fireplace keep the room toasty with direct natural light in the winter.

The second bedroom, in a separate building, is half a flight up from the patio and has it’s own veranda. It has soaring ceilings supported by original beams, twin beds, fireplace, bathroom with shower, and French doors that open on to the cactus garden.

The third bedroom sits atop the the second bedroom but is a full story up from the master bedroom suite. It has a has a Queensize bed, bathroom with shower, and a comfortable terrace overlooking the central patio. Guests seeking higher ground will find it along with stunning views up the sprial staircase to the rooftop mirador, or lookout.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I'm the leasing agent for this exceptional property... It is only on very rare occasions that the property is available to rent... in fact it is only available for October OR November of 2002, being rented straight through until Dec. 1 of 2003 already. What's so remarkable about this home? Three things: The location is unbelievable, the help (including a full time maid and a full time cook) are very attentive, and the home is furnished with valuable antiques and has a wonderful feel to it, especially the outside, south-facing living/dining room...everyone's favorite room. Hope you can come for one of the two months that it's still available. Judy

My family and I have stayed in Casa Pina twice in the last few years; the house and the location are remarkable. We have stayed in other homes in San Miguel but the house on Aldama has been the best, it makes the SMA experience even more memorable.

BEST STAFF IMAGINABLE!

  • 4 of 5
We loved almost everything about Casa Pina. The staff was so great that we wanted to take them home with us!! The house is due for a little update and the formal living room has a very strong mold or mildew smell. One person in our party had constant sniffles due to an allergy to mildew. The location is unbeatable - very close to the square, shops and restaurants. The house manager was very helpful and wanted us to enjoy our stay - which we did! We would rate this 5 stars if the updating was done!

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
Four of us stayed at Casa Pina earlier this year. One of us had been to San Miguel before, but the other three were new to the City. The location of Casa Pina could not have been better for our stay. It is centrally located, and ideal for a walking trip to San Miguel. Aleida, the owner, was extremely responsive to all of our questions before arriving, and her staff were wonderful to us. We did not take full advantage of the cooking that could have been done for us, but the full breakfasts each day got us off to a great start. The three bedrooms are each lovely, and while there is a lovely living room and dining room, we spent virtually all of our waking (and non touring) time in the outdoor living room around the fire. It was magical. The house is filled with lovely art, and was a delight to come home to every night. We will definitely be back.

MAGICAL

  • 5 of 5
Our family (4 adults) stayed at Casa Pina over Thanksgiving. It was a magical experience. The interior courtyard and outdoor living room were just wonderful. The location was very convenient. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to experience San Miguel. It just can't be beat for location and beauty.

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN CENTRAL SAN MIGUEL

  • 5 of 5
Casa Pina is beautifully laid out for the right balance of privacy and intimacy with lovely courtyard and rooftop spaces. The three bedrooms are elegant and snug, but we felt that the staff and service were the real keys to a perfect stay. Let Mari cook you dinner and you won't go to another restaurant. Just a few steps from the Jardin, the house is perfectly located. Highly recommended and just as advertised.

In addition, there is an English-speaking property manager on-call at all times just in case.
