Guestbook comments from the owner
This spacious and beautifully decorated home was very clean and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the views of the city and surrounding areas. There are small grocers and good restaurants right outside the gates, and the town centre is just a short walk from the house. After each day of activities in San Miguel, we always looked forward to coming back to the comforts of the house. We have already started planning our return trip to Casa Fortuna!

beautiful Casa Fortuna

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful comfortable house more then met our expectations. Lots of places to hang out, well appointed kitchen ( for cooking at home or entertaining friends) and very comfortable beds. A lovely place to come home to after exploring the town or just take the day off and enjoy the fantastic roof terrace with views of the old town. We found the neighbor hood friendly and safe; a store and a bus stop right in front of the gate or a pleasant walk to Centro and we would recommend this rental property highly. Perfect for 1 or 2 couples but it can sleep 6 comfortable.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the month of February in this beautiful casa. It has every convenience one could wish for, comfortable beds, fine linens and a magnificent rooftop patio with an almost 360 degree view of San Miguel. The place is spotless, thanks to dear Lupe who came 3 times a week to clean and take care of the numerous plants and cacti that adorn the patios. The casa is in the Colonia San Antonio district which is a little further away from the Jardine but well worth the extra 5-10 min walk.
We have already booked for next January!

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the house late on a cold afternoon. After we got settled in, we lit the fireplace to warm up the house before we headed out for dinner. The house is beautiful and has everything you need for your stay in SMA. Short walk to the Insituto and the Jardin. Lots of shops to visit on the way to the Jardin. Norma (the house manager) was awesome and speaks good english. Guadalupe (Housekeeper) is very nice. She doesn't speak english but I was able to communicate with her fine with my limited spanish. The beds are supper comfy. The rooftop view is awesome to say the least. Very happy we chose this home to stay at. Wouldn't change a thing.

fabulous view - high level of comfort

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Fortuna and well worth the return. The comfort of the house, high ceilings, spacious feeling all made the 6 weeks a pleasure. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bathrooms large and beautiful and the roof top deck so nicely greened by olive trees and flowering cacti. We also enjoyed our breakfasts sitting on the entry level patio watching the hummingbirds swoop in to feed on the courtyard flowering bushes. This is a wonderful place to stay.

Great, convenient location, quiet area that is close enough to the action

  • 5 of 5
The property is as beautiful as promised. Spacious, clean, comfortable and very private. An oasis away from the long days you want to be out exploring the area.

For out of town exploration, the bus station is a comfortable 15 minute walk (whic we did) or a very short taxi ride and Centro is a similar distance, although up a walkable grade to the Jardin. Local markets close by provided basic provisions of fresh fruit, milk and bread which made our stay feel more like home to prepare some of our meals.

Finally the property manager, Norma, was a pleasure and made sure our arrivial and departure were smooth and seamless and transactions with the owner was timely and responsive setting up the rental.

My wife and I highly recommend this property to others.

Words and pictures cannot adequately describe---

  • 5 of 5
----what an amazing place this is. Although this was our first trip to San Miguel we could have not anticipated any better accommodations. The phtos posted on line dont adequately convey how truly majestic and comfortable this property is. The craftsmanship is mesmerizing.
Before you go, note the following things that are not specifically listed
1) Water: This house does indeed have a treated and purified water system. In addition bottled water is supplied and plentiful.
2) FIreplace in winter: The one living room fireplace, miraculously enough adds warm to the entire house.
3) Access to El Centro: there are two routes - one that is level and about 20 minutes by foot and one shorter but requires a bit of a climb up a hill. There is a bus stop right outside the front gate and taxis are inexpensive (about $2.75 US) almost anywhere you care to go. The neighborhood is clean and extremely safe and quiet (well except for New Years Eve). So the location is great and the roof top view UNBEATABLE!
4) Norma: The house manager is a GEM! We had a problem witht the firepace on the terrace and she wcame right over in about 20 minutes and had the lines cleaned out the next day.
5) Hot water - is plentiful thanks to teh on-demand hot water system. Even though we were told that one of the showers would take a while to warm up - we experienced no problem whatsoever.
6) It is only a 10 minute wal to teh central bus terminal, so great for day trips to other locations, such as Guanajuato.
We hated to leave and look forward to returning some day.
