CASA CATALINA - EXQUISITE COLONIAL, SPACIOUS AND ELEGANT

San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description

.3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

Casa Catalina is a beautiful colonial home designed by two of San Miguel's finest architects. With its beautiful gardens, large terrace, warm colonial colors and tasteful furnishings, Casa Catalina provides the perfect surroundings for relaxing and entertaining.

The home has a fabulous kitchen, three bedrooms, each with a full bathroom and roomy closet, a study, four fireplaces, a living room and a great room. The home includes a cook, housekeeper, and a gardener, who keep Casa Catalina impeccably clean. The home also includes a modern ultra violet filtration system for water purification.

This colonial gem was designed with charm, tranquility and privacy in mind. As soon as you walk through the antique wooden entry doors, you can feel the home’s incredible energy. You’re greeted by the sound of a trickling fountain and a charming courtyard with lush greenery that provides a striking contrast against a beautiful stone wall. Just ahead the home beckons, with its warm colonial colors, high ceilings, and tasteful furnishings.

The colonial kitchen opens to an informal family room where you can enjoy meals with friends and family, or watch a movie or listen to a favorite CD. You can sit in the patio just off the kitchen for a relaxing breakfast or lunch prepared by Carolina, who is Casa Catalina’s delightful cook.

The three bedrooms upstairs provide comfort and privacy, each with its own full bathroom, closet, and TV for private time. All beds have non allergenic pillows, and clean, seasonal covers.

The study provides quiet time if you need to work, with a high speed, wireless internet connection. It's also a nice place curl up with a good book, while enjoying the natural light and breeze from the windows that overlook patios on either side.

In the afternoon the terrace is inviting for a gathering of friends for aperitifs, while you enjoy the sounds of San Miguel as they fill the air—church bells, birds, music, and fun.

Casa Catalina is just a short walk to the Instituto Allende, La Parroquia, the Jardin, Parque Juarez, and to many of San Miguel’s fabulous restaurants, night spots, shopping, museums, galleries, and much more.

When we first walked into Casa Catalina we knew it was a magical place. The wonderful energy that fills this house is indescribable. Every vacation we've enjoyed with our children in this beautiful home has been a treasure. We've hosted friends in this house from all over the world and they've been grateful to have enjoyed a stay in San Miguel in a house that is truly amazing.

This home is quiet, clean, and beautiful. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. The house has great places to relax, read, or work (if you must). Carolina is a fabulous cook, and will prepare delicious breakfasts, wonderful lunches, and snacks.

A SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
Casa Catalina is a gem. We spent a week in this beautiful home with two other couples. The home is tastefully furnished, beautifully maintained and the staff anticipates your every need. We arrived late to discover a meal waiting for us. There were several big arrangements of gladioli which accented the beauty of the home. We truly felt welcome.
Each day Carolina prepared a delicious breakfast from a menu that had many choices. Angelica kept the house spotless, took care of our rooms and did whatever laundry we had left out.
One day we enjoyed a walking tour, others we explored on our own. We went to Santa Rosa and Dolores Hidalgo to the pottery factories, to the city of Guanajuato, and to San Miguel's own market. We bought beautiful pottery and glassware, punched tin, linens, jewelry, hats and clothing. One evening we went to a cooking class where we prepared and ate some wonderful dishes. It was great fun for both the men and the women.
And speaking of food, we soon discovered that there were more outstanding restaurants than we had time to try -- virtually all within easy walking distance from Casa Catalina. The amazing thing about this home is that it is quiet and relaxing and comfortable and yet near to everything.
We look forward to returning to Casa Catalina -- and especially to breakfast in the charming patio off the kitchen, cocktails in the lovely rooftop garden, and just the right mix of activity and relaxation.

A BEAUTIFUL HOME CLOSE TO THE CENTRE OF TOWN

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful home, just as described in the listing. Very clean and well maintained, with very helpful and capable staff (cook, housekeeper, gardener). I would definitely recommend Casa Catalina to a friend or relative.
The location is central and makes it possible to walk into the centre of town easily, though taxis are cheap and easy to find.
We very much enjoyed the guitar duets of Jack and Frances at Los Milagros on Calle Reloj. Our favorite dining experience was eating on the patio at the Institut Allende ... wonderful ambiance.

WE ARRIVED IN THE EVENING AND WERE TREATED TO A WONDERFUL MEAL THAT HAD BEEN PREPARED IN ADVANCE.

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautifully maintained property, spacious,comfortable and extremely well located. The full time maid and cook and lovely and very helpful - but a bit more than we needed as we preferred to eat dinners out and had little for our cook to do.
I would rent this house again as out stay there was wonderful! Casa Catalina is a wonderful space for a family as it has a formal living room, a family style kitchen with a family room and a study. There are plenty of outdoor spaces to enjoy especially the rooftop with sweeping views stunning sunsets.

AWESOME, COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I visited Casa Catalina with two other couples February 9-16, 2013. Our driving trip from Bucerias, Mexico through the mountains to San Miguel was an interesting and enjoyable experience. Mexico is a very beautiful country and the roads are excellent.

We discovered that Casa Catalina was the perfect base for our adventurous week in San Miguel as it is conveniently located close to the city square. We parked our vehicle in a nearby lot and were able to make our way around the city by walking. We found the casa to be spacious & beautiful as well as exceptionally comfortable with soft sofas & chairs, wi-fi and all the comforts of home. The owners and staff have taken great care to anticipate your every need by supplying daily fresh towels and so many other little things that are so nice to have when traveling. We don't think you will find a 5 star hotel with better accommodations.

Each day of our stay began with an substantial, tasty breakfast prepared and served by Carolina and her daughter who are not only skilled in the cocina but spotless housekeepers as well. And at the end of an active day we were able to talk over our experiences with a drink on the rooftop garden. The vista from this vantage point is very memorable.

While in San Miguel we toured the city in a trolley car and visited the Allende Villa museum on the city central square. If you have a car (or there are day excursions available) we recommend driving to Guanajuato to see the underground tunnels, mummy museum and scenic vista above the city. We also spent time at the hot springs, pyramid and driving through the beautiful areas surrounding San Miguel. There is so much to do and see that we are looking forward to a return trip and another stay at Casa Catalina!

STAYING IN SAN MIGUEL

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed staying here. It was cozy yet elegant. Close to the historic district, walking to the Jardin. We took a trip to Guanajuato (the city), and tried to see the pyramids (they were closed that day for something we couldn't figure out). Went to the hot springs which was totally relaxing for the afternoon. Carolina and her daughter work hard to make your stay great; the meal prepared for the evening we arrived was a pleasant (and delicious) surprise.

AMAZING PLACE TO CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
This home is more beautiful than the photos show. The home's decor and details are wonderful. There were six of us and with the layout of the home we all had places that we could get away. That said, we mainly found that we loved being together on the rooftop terrace. A lot of reading and a few naps took place up there. The bougainvilles were lovely, we never realized there were so many different colors. They were in the courtyards and on the terraces. The location was fantastic and we walked to the square every day. As beautiful as this home is, it was the amazing staff that added delight to our stay. We were greeted by their smiling faces every morning as they prepared breakfast for us. Carolina is an amazing cook (we had her show us how to make her delicious green sauce....hot,but so good) and her daughter kept the house spotless. We loved San Miguel and this home made the experience so much more. Thanks for opening it to guests.
