We are a couple who have owned property here in San Miguel since 2005. We know the town well and are excited to share it with our friends!

Michael MacQuarrie purchased this house in 2012

This property blew us away when we first saw it! It had everything we wanted and things we couldn't imagine we would get. There were many surprises as we walked through the house for the first time. Once we had seen it we looked at each other and both knew that this was the place for us!

Yes, it's an amazing location. Yes, it has more than enough room. Yes, we feel completely safe staying in this beautiful house. But what we never cease to notice are the details put into the home. For starters, what other house in town has a Bedouin tent inside that you can stay in?!? We've never seen one before but we thought it was so great that we kept it. Other little things like the beveled windows and the mature garden. This house has obviously been taken care of by someone very passionate about their surroundings. We then added our personal touches such as our own original artwork and a grand piano which gets use every time we come down.

Those are just a few things we love about this home, then there are the fireplaces in every room, and the fountain in the middle of the garden. Everyone seems to find their own favorite piece of this house, and we know you will too!

Back again but for longer this time.

  • 5 of 5
I was so impressed by the city of San Miguel and so comfortable in this home, I chose to come back and explore a little more of the city. This time I had 3 weeks and could really relax! Everything is so close, I was able to walk most places and if it was too far to walk,I could get a taxi, usually right outside the door of the house. I think I must've gone to at least two restaurants a day during the three weeks I was there discovering so many wonderful people, foods, music, art. There is music around every corner with world-class musicians playing at reasonable prices or even for free!
It was the rainy season this time and the courtyard again was one of my favorite experiences because I could be laying on my bed in my room and watch the rainfall, hear thunder and see lightning. Usually the rain only lasted an hour or so and I was back on out discovering more of San Miguel. Just be careful in town on wet, slippery cobblestones!
The accommodations again were beautiful and comfortable although this time I stayed in a different room. It was also little bit warmer this time of year and my room was always cooler than the outside temperature was which was nice. During one of the thunderstorms we lost some power for little while but I really didn't care because this is Mexico and that's part of the beauty of it all. These things happen. Things are simple there and not always perfect. But that's part of the reason I go there… To disengage a little, to enjoy a slower pace, to enjoy the simpler life.
This time I enjoyed the roof deck a little bit more with a view of San Miguel that is incredible. I really like that there are so many outdoor covered areas at the house that allow you to enjoy whatever weather there is without getting wet or too hot or burnt .
Now, I want to come for a few months a year. That will take some planning. But until then, I'll be back here!

Peaceful, natural elegance.

  • 5 of 5
Upon my arrival on the airport shuttle van, I was greeted by the grounds keeper to receive my keys. As the door opened , I was overwhelmed by how open and spacious the property is. The high ceilings, stone and tile so beautiful. One of my favorite things was the courtyard that is open to the sky which allowed the birds and butterflies to come down and play in the flowers on the vines. It was so naturally restful for me. Between classes at the San Miguel Writer 's Conference, I walked through town and then back to the house many times during the week for more lounging, reading, whatever I felt like. The little organic store across the street had sliced fruit with lime and chile powder... So good and about 15 pesos. I loved my stay there. The temperature was mild and the house felt pretty even so a sweater in the am and evening when going out was plenty. My room had a fireplace which I used but more for the ambiance than necessity. The housekeeper was sweet and helpful, everything was spotless. I will definitely come back and would love to bring friends!

Misleading and Disappointed

  • 3 of 5
Here are the issues we experienced with this property:
1. No air conditioning in one bedroom as promised was working;
2. TV not working until third day of our stay;
3. No hot water after the 2nd day;
4. House was not very clean esp. in bedrooms. While the maid and gardener were there from 9-5pm every other day (an extremely long amount of time to not have privacy) our rooms were not cleaned, towels were not replaced nor were beds made;
5. The 3rd bedroom was locked by the house keeper on the 3rd day of our stay for no reason, outside of owners’ retaliation for making valid and reasonable complaints to him;
6. There was a sewage smell in the upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, and this smell increased to include the rest of the downstairs by the end of our stay;
7. There was a mold smell in the entertainment room that was so terrible and overwhelming we would run through it just get to the outside deck;
7. One of the front door locks didn't always work and we would spend many long minutes trying to get back in. This was confirmed by the housekeeper -we were told not to use the front lock, which made house more unsafe;
8. WIFI connection only worked in one room off the kitchen, and only intermittently, at best. This was advertised as a main feature of the house and we chose this house based on the available Internet. We asked the gardener about it not working and he confirmed it often didn't work.
We detrimentally relied on the owner's mischaracterization and advertisements of the home both on VRBO and in emails, all of which were false and incredibly misleading.
We emailed the owner the first morning we were there after we were promised the entire house and that the air conditioning in one of the bedrooms would be working, and the satellite was not working, and here is his response, in pertinent part:
"Three bedrooms and the whole house is plenty for your group WE NEVER, NEVER, NEVER RENT OUT OUR BEDROOM WITH ALL OUR BELONGINGS."
And after referring us to the manager to help us with our concerns (one of which was never addressed) he stated, " It is hard for me to believe that ANYONE goes to San Miguel to watch television, but the company that set up the satellite system can take care of it. Sorry you are disappointed. While you are there perhaps you can find a more suitable residence for your next visit. Michael
As you can see, this unprofessional and reactive email left us with no recourse to have our concerns addressed.
