San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

When you arrive at our charming Casa de la Luna Sonriente you will first notice the nice entry way with a unique front door which allows the top windows to swing open to catch the breeze allowing you to immerse yourself in the romance of this intriguing town. To the sides of the entry way you have the living room and dining/kitchen areas both with rustic exposed beam ceilings and either wrought iron chandeliers or Mexican style metal lighting fixtures.

The living room has a red plush, sink in and relax, sofa and loveseat. Other seating includes a lovely Mexican style carved bench covered with a plump cushion and decorative pillows. There is a TV with cable, combination dvd/vcr, ipod docking station with speakers along with several reference books about Mexico and San Miguel. The half bath is just off the living room. The dining area has a glass dining table that seats four with a charming tiled complete kitchen behind. The living room and kitchen have gas fireplaces. Purified water is available in the kitchen (cold water faucet ONLY). There is a glassed in pass-through (breezeway) that allows light to flood in from the roof through all three floors.

Going up the spiral staircase to the second floor you will find a small den area between the two bedrooms. A nice window with a small balcony gives the room character and more light. Curl up in the leather Equipale sofa to read a book. On one side is the Master bedroom with a queen bed, with memory foam topper, looking up to a boveda ceiling with a ceiling fan. The room also includes another window with a small balcony and a gas fireplace.There is a color cable TV and a DVD player. Adjoining the Master bedroom is a small walk in closet that leads to the vivid blue tiled bathroom with skylights. This bathroom has a comfortable tub and shower with a window to access the breezeway. On the other side is another bedroom, also with a boveda ceiling and ceiling fan. There is a small TV with cable provided. There are two twins beds - also with memory foam toppers - (that could be pushed together to make a queen) and a smaller full bath with a shower only.

Up the stairwell to the top floor and you will see why this house is the Gem of Guadalupe. Enjoy the covered patio with views of the Parroquia and San Miguel in all of its glory. There is a small refrigerator/freezer provided to chill your wine and drinks. Also a propane tank gas grill can be used to prepare a nice rooftop dinner. Relax and watch the sun set over the mountains with the churches and town lights twinkling below.

The entire house has beautifully tiled counter tops and floors. All bedding, towels, kitchen utensils, pots and pans are provided. Twice a week maid service is also provided. On the top floor just around the corner are the covered washer and dryer for your laundry needs. We have Vonage phone service which allows free calls to the USA, Canada, Puerto Rico (both cell and land lines) and many other Countries (LAND LINES ONLY). We provide a listing of the free calling countries in our rental information. We have wireless service for our laptop users. We have tried to make this house as livable as possible although we will be continually making upgrades. A few of the photos do not show the new furniture or updates - please contact us for more information.

The location is in Guadalupe; a flat 12-15 minute walk to the Centro. Also 5 minutes to the artisans walk and 6-7 minutes to the Fabrica Aurora There is a tienda on the next block for any late night munchies or needed supplies. Several smaller restaurants and a good local pizza joint are nearby. As always most places are reachable by a 25-35 peso cab ride.

Lisa loves to travel and is about to eclipse 40 countries on her list. I love sports - especially college football 'Go Hogs Go' - and dancing.

Lisa Widner purchased this house in 2007

I arrived in San Miguel the first time by accident. I was supposed to fly into Chihuahua and missed my flight. Luckily they allowed me to choose another flight so I flew into San Luis Potosi and rented a car. I spent time in San Miguel and Guanajuato. Being that it was August and I live in Houston, I immediately fell in love with the weather. I was entranced by the beauty, architecture and vivid colors. I continue to enjoy the varied restaurants, entertainment, culture, and never ending parades that typically end with fireworks. More importantly I easily slip into the calm and tranquil lifestyle once there. I appreciate the graciousness of the Mexican people and hope in some small way I can resemble them. I plan to spend more time and enjoy this area once I retire.

Fantastic time!

My husband, son & I really enjoyed our stay- it is a calm, beautifully decorated home in a nice neighborhood where we could enjoy some of the real Mexico. Nice views, beautiful sunset and a 10 min walk to the Jardin. Public transportation is nearby as well. The noise was average considering that people work and live here. The house fostered privacy between the 2 bedrooms yet provided a sense of togetherness when we wanted. We would easily stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you - so glad you enjoyed your stay and we were able to work it out with the two crazy schedules. I know you son will remember this trip. Good for you for exposing him to another country.

San Miguel de Allende house

This is a good budget accommodation. It is well described in the listing, and is quite well equipped, though the kitchen is small and pots etc. are not easily accessible if one is looking to prepare meals. The bathrooms are small but functional, with lots of hot water and good water pressure. There are some indications of needed maintenance, such as the wood cupboard under the sink in the MBR ensuite - it needs a coat of finish. The plug is missing in one sink.
Fortunately there are detailed instructions on the operation of the stove and indeed, for the entire house. The pictures of the house in the listing tend to be a bit flattering.
The house is spacious; the LR and DR are very pleasant, as are the bedrooms. The rooftop patio is a strong point with very nice views over the town.
It is well situated, a 15 minute walk from the centro. There are many corner stores in the immediate area. A 5 minute walk away finds the Via Organica, a highly recommended cafe and food store. Buses and taxis are also a 5-minute walk away.
The cleaning lady did a very good job, and was much appreciated.
The owner responded quickly to any questions or concerns, and has done a fine job of providing extensive information on the house, and living in San Miguel.

Great home away from home

If you are looking for a true Mexican experience this is it! Colonia Guadalupe is a working class Mexican neighborhood with all the sights and sounds of such. Ice cream, tortilla, tamale, corn and jicima vendors pass by your door every day. If you are lucky you will see small brown burros carrying sacks of garden mulch being led down the street. Wonderful, authentic slice of Mexico.
The house is as advertised with views of the Parroquia and other churches downtown whose bells ring out the time. If you spend time (and we did) on the roof patio you will find that neighbors will wave to you from their roof tops when they hang out clothes or check their cisterns.
We walked to and from the Jardin every day and most evenings. Interesting looking in all the little tiendas along the way. If you make an effort to communicate people will go out of their way to help you. Great places to eat or stop for a drink.
Elena, the maid, keeps the house spotless and is very helpful. Don't be afraid to use a translater on your cell phone to communicate with her. Tip her well, she is worth it.
We had a wonderful, relaxing, fun month in this home. No problems at all. Oh, don't miss the murals on the walls in Colonia Guadalupe. Truely outstanding!

Owner's Response: You have captured why we love our home so much -the sights, tastes, sounds and textures of a vibrant Mexican community. So glad you enjoyed the stay and thanks for recommending the murals in Colonial Guadalupe. Hope you make it back again sometime in the future.

Wonderful Home, Noisy Neighborhood

I rented the house for the entire month of September. This house is very comfortable and well equipped. Lisa, the owner, was wonderful to work with and has lots of integrity. I truly believe that she wants to satisfy her renters. I found that the problem in living there was not the house but the very noisy street. Naturally, Lisa has no control over noise, but even though she recommends bringing ear plugs, it doesn't prepare you for the early morning traffic (6:00 a.m. - 8:00a a.m.) of horns blowing, garbage trucks, kids going to school, people walking to work, etc. Neighborhood dogs bark constantly around the clock.

Owner's Response: Yes we are not able to control the noise especially the school and garbage schedule. Although I do think we all have different levels of noise we tolerate. I stayed at the house in July and do not recall dogs barking all day long and I even sat outside many evenings. One option is for the renter(s) to sleep in the twin room - it is darker and is further from the street noise. Eventually I hope to switch these bedrooms but that would entail some construction as the twin bedroom bath is smaller...but it is an option if a renter is ok with the smaller bath or is okay sleeping in one room and using the master bath. Once again it is Mexico which is a delightful mix of colors, smells and noises.

Wonderful home away from home

This really is a well maintained delightful home, as pictured. The decor is fun and quirky, and the beds are comfortable. I want those couches! Just right for curling up in, any time of the day. The owner was fantastic to deal with, we had a slight change of plan and she was extremely accommodating. The kitchen is really well equipped and everything is perfectly clean. Upstairs the patio is just wonderful, a cool place that gets the breeze and there is even a fridge up there. We loved staying here and would recommend to anyone wanting a comfortable place to stay, only a short walk to centro. I didn't find it very noisy at nighttime. Get in quick and book this place.
