There is a 5% Hacienda Tax added to the rental price. This is my home part time. I enjoy sharing it when I am not in Mexico. You may call me at home for more information. There is a deposit and must be paid when making reservations. I have people tell me that they are committing and would love to rent the house but I cannot consider it rented until I receive your deposit.
The house comes with maid Monday - Friday for four hours a day and a gardener to serve your needs. If you require a maid for longer, she may be acquired for $4.00 US an hour. The maid is happy, pleasant and enjoys cooking for your pleasure. We recommend a tip of $3.00 per person a day at the end of each week or your departure, whichever comes first. This property can be purchased.
I have stayed in many houses in SMA. Don't even think about staying anywhere else but here! Most comfortable house in all of SMA. And trust me, none of the other houses are comfortable.
I live in San Miguel part of the year. They say Florida is where you go to die and San Miguel is where you go to live. I have small well behaved dogs that travel with me. If you have the same, you are welcome to bring them along. No biters please.
Why choose my house? Many houses in Mexico are not comfortable. This one is truly comfortable. I have gone to great lengths to be sure that this is a home and not just a house.
This house is a truly fully handicapped house with extra wide doors and ramps. You may enjoy the gardens while using a wheelchair. The bathrooms are extra large and you can turn your wheelchair around in them. Even the bathmats in the bathrooms are painted on the floor to accommodate a wheelchair. If you are not handicapped, you will enjoy the spacious areas unknown to most Mexico houses. All the rooms in the main house are extra large, including the kitchen, laundry room and the bathrooms.
San Miguel de Allende is a city that manages to be both quaint and cosmopolitan at the same time. Once an important stop on the silver route between Zacatecas and Mexico City, its historic center is filled with well-preserved buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. With its narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards, fine architectural details and sumptuous interiors, San Miguel de Allende is arguably the prettiest town in Mexico.
In 2008 UNESCO recognized San Miguel de Allende and the neighboring Sanctuary of Jesus de Atotonilco as World Heritage of Humanity sites, citing the town's religious and civil architecture as a demonstration of the evolution of different trends and styles, from Baroque to late 19th century Neo-Gothic.
Located in Guanajuato state, 265 km (120 miles) northeast of Mexico City and 96 km (60 miles) from the state capital, Guanajuato city, San Miguel is located within Mexico's hilly central highlands. San Miguel de Allende has no international airport so visitors usually fly into either the Leon/Bajio airport or the Mexico City airport and then take a bus. This is not a major drawback and may in fact add to the city's charm: the sound of an airplane coming in for a landing never disrupts the pealing of church bells, plus the effort required to get here makes it all the more enjoyable.
Walking is undoubtedly the best way to explore San Miguel. A car can be more of a hindrance than a help in town, though it can be useful for day trips to the nearby cities of Guanajuato, Dolores Hidalgo or Queretaro. When your feet get tired, hop on the sightseeing trolley that departs from the tourism office on the north side of the Jardín Principal. After a tour of the main points of interest, it will take you to the Mirador, a lookout point where you'll be able to have a panoramic view of the city.
There is a substantial expat community in San Miguel, so it's easy to find services in English and restaurants cater to the Americans, Canadians and Europeans who flock here. It is still very much a Mexican town, however, where locals cheerily co-exist with the foreigners who visit or call this city home.
San Miguel is a preferred destination of art lovers. Whether you're an aspiring or accomplished artist, or just prefer to admire the creations of others, you'll be happy here. Studio openings, courses and workshops form a vital part of the thriving arts scene. Galleries, boutiques and shops selling a wide range of art and handicrafts are plentiful so it won't be hard to find souvenirs to take home with you.
San Miguel de Allende has an air of tranquility about it, belying the fact that there is always something happening. This is the perfect city for an extended stay. Take a Spanish course or some art classes and make yourself at home. It is safe to walk around day and night and the climate is pleasant year-round.

Allow yourself to be caressed by San Miguel de Allende
San Miguel is the ultimate destination for a good rest, everything here has been designed for your complete satisfaction and comfort.
Like most Mexican towns, San Miguel de Allende has a main square that is a lively hub of activity. Unlike most Mexican towns, instead of being called the zocalo or Plaza de Armas, in San Miguel the main square is called el Jardin Principal. Jardin, which means 'garden' is a fitting name for this square which is full of carefully trimmed laurel trees and other greenery. Plentiful benches invite you to have a seat and watch the people go by. A kiosk in the center of the Jardin provides a space for live music performances. This is the meeting place for expats and Mexicans alike, and the perfect spot to while an afternoon away, or spend an evening enjoying live music and the animated social life of this colonial town.
The Jardin is surrounded by remarkable colonial buildings, and traffic is closed to all but the north side of the square. The municipal government office is located to the north. On September 17, 1810, the First Council of Independent Mexico took place in this building, with independence leaders Hidalgo and Allende presiding. There is a tourist information office here where you can get a free map of the city and information about current events. To the east and west there are buildings with high arcades. You'll find cafes and restaurants, along with vendors set up in the shade.
