San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Casa de los Amigos, a home away from home. A home that was put together 4 years ago with a lot of love by two closely knit families because we fell in love with San Miguel the first week we were there and now we want to share our enthusiasm with you. All the colors of Mexico you will find in our Mexican townhouse. Located in San Antonio, a ten minute walk to the center of San Miguel and a eight minute walk to the famous Instituto de Allende. This area is what we would call Soho/Tribeca type neighborhood. You will be among a varied group of people with lots to explore behind every door. Many little neighborhood restaurants where everyone goes for great guacamole and frozen margaritas and so much to explore. Every time we go there is something new to discover. And wait until you see the view from the rooftop garden. So magical!
As stated before, this house is very recent, and each time we are in town we cannot resist to add more artwork for our own pleasure. It is so cozy that you will want to come back, not just to visit San Miguel and all it has to offer but to see what we have been adding. This is really a neighborhood that is so close to all that there is to do in San Miguel. Great restaurants, theater, art, music, local markets, etc. ... and all this can be at your fingertips without paying the price for being in “Centro” with its noise and pollution.
Enter through our beautiful wrought iron door and walk under the trellis we have built that is covered with lovely local flowers, and enter into the main room of the house with its mango colored walls and a cantera fireplace which opens into our fully equipped kitchen where there is a door that leads into a small outdoor area with plants to enjoy while you are having a Mexican breakfast. Also there is a bathroom located on this floor with, of course, Mexican tiles and more colors of Mexico. Follow the great staircase up to the first floor, this is the office corner with a desk, broadband internet connection (ethernet cable and wireless)and a nice comfortable bench if someone wants to keep you company while you are sending emails home to all your friends telling them about San Miguel or checking online for San Miguel's events of the day. Also on this floor is the first bedroom, which sleeps two in a Queen bed with a fabulous newly carved out headboard, ceiling fan, Sony LCD flat screen TV (with cable access to international programs in addition to the regular Mexican programs) and bathroom with again Mexican tiles and a great shower and bath which is all tiled, plus a hammered brass sink. Then take the staircase up to the next level to the second bedroom. This can be either two twins or a King bed with more beautiful carved headboards, ceiling fan, another LCD flat screen TV (with also full cable access) and a full bathroom with a gorgeous ceramic sink. This room opens up onto a lovely terrace with an outdoor couch and beautiful plants. A perfect spot for having breakfast under a sunny sky. You'll get a lot of sun in the morning. Also on this level, there is a brand new washer dryer in a room right outside the bedroom. From the terrace you will take a circular staircase up to our rooftop garden where you can enjoy the view of the whole city with all different kinds of flowering plants and a table and chairs where you can relax and enjoy a nice cool drink.
Truly, it is hard to describe the magic of this city. You need to come down and experience it for yourself, and you will feel at home doing that from this wonderful townhouse in the heart of San Miguel, Colonia San Antonio.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My friend and I really liked staying at the Casa. I wish we spent more time there to fully enjoyed this lovely house. We liked the fact that each of us had a private bedroom and a bathroom. The terrace is a delight, especially at night.
The location was convenient, it was quiet at night, and in the morning we loved smelling freshly-baked bread from the bakery next door.
It comes with nice beds, plenty of towels, well-equipped kitchen.
I would definitely stay there again!! Wine that Patrick left for us was a very nice touch and made us feel very welcomed - Thank you and hope to visit again!
