I am a Landscape Architect and Artist with a private practice in the New York City Metropolitan area. I also lecture at Pratt Institute. The house contains several of my paintings which are part of a series of work called 'The people of San Miguel de Allende'. Other paintings of this series are in the collections of prominent New Yorkers and in residences in San Miguel.
Chuck purchased this house in 2005
Loved the house, enjoyed the dining room and the original Art work. The house was always cool even on the hotest days.
Owner's are deceitful...Do not deal with these people. Many things in the house were broken. Three of the six dining room chairs, garbage disposal, dishwasher, empty propane tank for hot water, multiple lightbulbs missing with no replacements, towels provided were not even car-wash caliber, broken/busted table, chairs and umbrella on roof deck, kitchen utensils were more than 50 years old, 1/4 roll of toilet paper in bathrooms, no paper towels,
old dirty soap chips provided, no dishwashing liquid or dishwasher soap, no matches long enough to light the propane stove, broken chair in one master tied w/twine etc. etc.
The unit is NOT wheelchair accessible. Lots of potted plants busting out of their containers...totally root bound and busting terra-cotta pots. Only three bedrooms and three en-suite bathrooms. One studio on roof deck (accessible by small cat walk) where dryer was located outside it's door. The shower and toilet and washer were totally separated by the catwalk on the other side of the roof. The listing description was virtually totally inaccurate.
It was accurate in saying it was located in centro historico. There was a great restaurant on the street (Calle Loreto) named Cafe Muro. The property was clean enough...just everything was busted. We had to wait 24 hrs after arrival to fill the propane tank (at a cost to us of $250) which the owner's falsely promised to reimburse. The owner wanted us to pay to fix the sink & dishwasher and again claimed they would pay us back. The house had tons of jerry-rigged electricial issues....i.e. cords wrapped w/duct tape, funky outlets etc. Location was great....this could be a great rental but for the neglect of the owner's and their lack of a property manager in town to deal with major issues that may arise. The view from the roof deck was incredible...but the four chairs and table were trash. There were only two of us renting this for the entire month of March and we had prepaid the deposit and rent. The couches in the living room were covered w/blankets which we washed as they appeared to be dingy. We went to Costco and bought normal supplies that our generally included in a rental. We had to buy towels and washcloths along w/paper supplies. We had to buy a coffeemaker as the one provided was broken. Most of the dishes were chipped but useable. Probably had lead paint. Expensive month and lesson.
I stayed at the house in Centro for 10 days over December/January. It was magnificent. The house was impeccably clean, the rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated, and the art was a lovely addition. The rooftop access was a huge plus – with views overlooking all of Centro including the churches. What a perfect evening with a glass of wine and a sunset! Easy access to transportation and walking distance to town. Delicious restaurants, great shopping, wonderful people. Very safe area. The owners were so incredibly accommodating. Thank you so much for an absolutely wonderful vacation!!
