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.

Stay: Jan – March, 2010



We stayed at Casa Luna Sonriente (smiling moon) January, February and March of 2010. It is situated in the barrio of Guadaloupe north of el Jardin (the center). As advertised, it is a flat walk of 10 to 15 minutes to the center which may be relevant to non mountain climbers as San Miguel is located on the side of a mountain declining from east to west. For those unfamiliar with San Miguel be advised that restaurants abound and there are many a mere 10 minutes walk south. In the immediate neighbourhood try Gombos a pizza delivery joint which also has a small dining area with a limited but excellent Italian menu. One of our favourites was Vivoli on Hernandez Macias opposite Bellas Artes. Say hola to Rita for us. There are at least three tiendas within a couple of minutes for access to those valencia oranges to squeeze for breakfast. Or if you prefer someone else to do your squeezing try Buenos Dias on Relox just north of the biblioteca (library). We found the casa to be very comfortable and well taken care of by Elena who thoroughly cleans every Monday and Friday. It is typically Mexican with boveda ceilings in both bedrooms and a center hall plan with the living room separated from the dining room and kitchen. It has all the amenities including TV’s in both bedrooms and living room. The portable Ipod station with speakers can be transported to the roof deck to provide music while you sip your margarita or cerveca while absorbing the view of sunsets or the lighted domes and steeples of chuches and cathedrals. You may reach into the fridge on the roof to replenish your beverage without having to move too far. This was our third trip to San Miguel and it didn’t disappoint. The local folks, the cultural events, the restaurants and the seemingly endless festivals and celebrations make this a special place.

I love to travel and am 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.

FABULOUS AS ALWAYS!

  • 5 of 5
We spent three weeks enjoying this terrific home in April. We were there for Semana Santa and our home away from home once again proved to be the perfect place to be. This was our second stay and we highly recommend it! We love the neighborhood, the walk to the jardin or Fabrica Aurora, or to many of the great restaurants within walking distance. The house is comfy and a cool respite in the heat of the afternoon. We feel very safe in this neighborhood and all we've walked through (we do not need a car while there) in San Miguel. We taxi to Mega and the far end of Ancha San Antonio but other than that we mostly walk.

The house is located just far enough away from everything to be good exercise without being exhausting when you walk. We definitely recommend this place - and Lisa is a wonderful host. I can't imagine anyone staying here and not loving it - and as another reviewer said - the house is really exactly like the pictures. Very nice!!

AMAZING STAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in San Miguel De Allende and Casa Cielito Lindo only made our vaction even more enjoyable. It is a very beautiful home to kick your feet up and relax after being out exploring the beautiful town of SMDA. The house has everything you need to make you feel at home and for the price, it is a steal. I plan on another trip to SMDA and I definitely want to stay at Casa Cielito Lindo again.

CASA DE LA LUNA SONRIENTE

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a one month stay at Casa de la luna sonriente. The month of May just sped by. My wife and I have nothing but raves about our stay in this house and Colonia Guadelupe. Just read the review posted by Barbara R., 2/3/14 and add exclamation points. This was our second stay in San Miguel and we would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative. Hope to stay there again next year.....N & M

FANTASTIC TIME!

  • 5 of 5
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.

SAN MIGUEL DE ALLENDE HOUSE

  • 3 of 5
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.
