Surround MUSIC Sound with 99 CD collection

Distinguished home designed by the famous Architect Alan Wilkenson, featured internationally in architectural magazines. The Kitchen, Living Room and Master Bedroom are on one floor. There are ample spaces for either indoor or outdoor dining. Rooftop Terrace with gas grill. Outstanding lighting throughout all four levels of the home. The house is designed around an historic tree, 'El Arbol', that grows up through the center of the house- an architectural wonder in itself. All of the interior floors are polished Cantera, while the outside floors are created from rustic, hand-carved Cantera. The owners' art collection compliments the subtle elegance of the home.

CASA ARBOL, a short walk from San Miguel's gorgeous Parroquia Cathedral and its bustling central Jardin, is one of a kind. Built only 6 years ago, it has the flavor and feel of a centuries-old home.

Three master bedroom suites in total with two on the Jacuzzi level along with the Media- Library Room .

Villa's History: CASA Arbol was designed and built six years ago by a noted SMA architect. He designed a four-level stone house on the side of a hill that leads down to the arroyo and the orchid garden. The stairs are few and have the perfect pitch. A fine home, indeed, he did build. With the home being located 'just so' on the property, the views across the arroyo and through the gardens and out to the mountains beyond are so very wonderful All along the street side is a tall stone wall that ensures both privacy and security. The home is safe and in a very nice neighborhood just four blocks from the Jardin and the heart of old San Miguel. It's a lovely walk both to and from the Jardin, or if you prefer, taxis 30 pesos [ $2.30 USD] are always available.

With all of the art, the concerts, the mariachi bands, the pageants seemingly every weekend, San Miguel is a fascinating place to spend some time. The history is rich, the people are warm and helpful, and the restaurants are good and many. Parks, museums, botanical gardens...all are here.

About Sheila Sheehan

Our villa, Casa Arbol in San Miguel, is our primary residence. Because we travel a great deal, we offer our property to select individuals for rent while we are on the road. We are retired entrepreneurs both of whom were in the travel business. Nanci hails from Michigan with a long layover in Florida. Sheila spent her younger years in Morocco, Baltimore, and Jacksonville, FL. San Miguel has been home since 2006.

Sheila Sheehan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Sheila Sheehan chose San Miguel de Allende

Casa Arbol exudes the flavor of a historic stone house, but it has all of the amenities of a new house. Totally constructed out of native Mexican stone, its rooms are all connected with hand-carved cantera walkways. A roof top terrace offers a view over the valley and distant mountains. Nearer are the ruins of an old tannery that is now an orchid garden. In short, it is paradise...very comfortable and comfortably private.

We rented this house in 2006 for two weeks; within 8 months we owned it and became San Miguel residents.

What makes this villa unique

Security and privacy and the best staff in all of Central Mexico.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Sheila,



Thank you for everything, we really enjoyed our stay in San Miguel. The house is incredible, my mom loved the kitchen and her bedroom. My nephew was very happy taking care of BB. Every corner, every room of the house was just amazing.



Thanks for your tips and recommendations very helpful to us.

Angelica, Guadalupe and Rene give us an incredible service, they are amazing, very helpful and kind.



We hope next year we can stay there again!



Thank you very much to you and Nancy, it was really good meeting you.

Amazing house, best in SMA!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing house, every room was incredible, beautiful kitchen very spacious with everything you need, amazing master bedroom. The architecture and design of the house are unique and is very close to the main attractions in SMA. Our stay was just like if we were in our own home. The service was excellent, very helpful and nice. We are definitely coming back next year. Thank you!

Stunning Stone Retreat above the Orchid Garden

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in many lovely homes in San Miguel over the past 8 years, but Casa Arbol is now one of our favorites. With the comfort and ease of new construction, its hand hewn stone walls and half timbered ceilings exude the look and feel of centuries old buildings, perfectly sited with views of the lush greenery and storied past of Stirling Dickinson's orchid garden. Everything was clean, well maintained and comfortable, while the staff was reliable, warm and efficient. The owner Sheila not only arranged for the head housekeeper and a neighbor to meet us upon our arrival, but she also called us at the house that day and again prior to our departure, a level of customer service we had not previously experienced with vacation rentals anywhere. The location was especially ideal for us, a brief walk to the Jardín, yet removed enough to be free of the ubiquitous roosters calls, firecrackers and street noise closer in. We particularly enjoyed our bracing walks uphill to the house after indulgent evenings out, but those less inclined to walk can rest assured that taxis both to and from the house are plentiful and inexpensive. In short, I would not only recommend this home to others, but am already scheming my return to Casa Arbol this year!

A Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

Casa Arbol is truly one of the most beautiful homes in San Miguel. From the stone walls to the beautiful furniture and art to the views of the town, it provides an experience in gracious living second to none. The location is ideal, right on the edge of Centro, far enough out to be peaceful and quiet yet still close enough to the center of town to walk. All three bedrooms are elegant suites with the most comfortable of beds and a dinner party in the great room is a regal event. The staff keeps the house immaculate and they could not be nicer and more attentive

to your needs. It was very difficult to leave. I highly recommend this property.

Visually stunning with relaxed seclusion!

  • 5 of 5

This sophisticated home is the perfect setting for an "escape" vacation. This home is more gorgeous than the pictures and has a welcoming, peaceful and relaxing ambiance. The whole house is connected by its beauty and great design. The open architecture of the home integrates it and you with nature. The inside of the house blends into the outside...it is so aesthetically pleasing and relaxing.

This house has every amenity that I would find in my own home....and then some.

It was immaculate and very well maintained. Angelica, the main housekeeper of this house is an outstanding cook! The food was great tasting, very authentic, and so fresh. Eating a meal at Casa Arbol was equivalent to eating out at any fine dining restaurant!

The house is conveniently located within walking distance of the main jardin or square of San Miguel De Allende. This charming historic city is like traveling to another world....the food, entertainment, shops, and culture were unforgettable. A nightly ritual that we established while in San Miguel was to watch/listen to the Mariachi bands at the main jardin, which was then followed by a refreshing margarita (or two), at the Ceilo restaurant (rooftop seating)....allowing us to take in the spectator view of the city.... before heading back to the relaxing Casa Arbol for the night.

A unique experience in one-of-a kind property

  • 5 of 5

San Miguel de Allende is the center of the Universe! This house perfectly captures the character and spirit of the town. You can't tell when the comfort of a room ends and the outside natural environment begins as the natural peace of the outdoors blends in with the luxury of the indoor. I enjoyed having breakfast next to the big tree and a sunset aperitif on the roof terrace. Every corner of the house is a place to discover! The kitchen is certainly the heart of this place and the staff is available to cook the most delicious and authentic meal. You will love this property and want to come back to make more memories!

Hot springs dot the countryside surrounding San Miguel. Not far are the ruins of pyramids. Guanajuato, an hour away, is a wonderful day trip. Pozos, a quintessential Mexico village, is worth a visit if you want to get a feel of Old Mexico.

Notes:

It is very important to note that we have lowered our weekly rental rate because our beloved cat has to be a part of the rental agreement. Although our cat is cared for by our staff, renters of our home would have to be cat fans. Our home is not particularly suited to children, unless they are 13 or older.
