San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 5 Baths (Sleeps 6) The casita can be rented separately.

On the southern edge of Centro within a 5 minute walk to Parque Juarez , and a 9 minute walk to the center of San Miguel de Allende, sits Casa de Mariposas. It is situated in a very quiet and private area with no road traffic and a large, lush beautiful garden and courtyard. The furnishings are primarily contemporary with antique counterpoints and fine art. The property could accommodate a couple in the main house alone, or 6 people using the entire property. There are 3 separate structures, each sleeping 2 people.

Upon entering the property, you enter a serene and magical world. There is a large courtyard and garden with 3 ancient trees which provide respite from the almost year round sunshine in San Miguel. The courtyard offers a Jacuzzi, a meditation area surrounded by foliage and flowers, and a hammock for reading and watching the birds and butterflies flit in and out of the overhead trees. A fountain surrounded by lush plantings and a sitting area provides soothing water music.

There are 2 structures accessible from the court-yard, the main house, as well as another building containing a large, light filled studio and a well decorated separate bedroom and bath.This bedroom and bath with limited kitchen facilities can be rented separately from the main house for $500US per month.

There is also a veranda overlooking the garden which has a dining area which seats 8, along with a sitting area for enjoying drinks and looking out to the garden.

The main house has a very large living room with 3 couches, many pieces of art and sculpture and is a perfect place for large scale entertaining. There is also a bath with shower, a dining area, a kitchen and TV room as well as an office with Internet and Vonage phone, all on the lower level. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the TV room as well as an adjacent flower-filled patio for your morning coffee.

On the second level is a very large bedroom suite with king sized bed, and down comforter, with a dressing room, a separate reading area and large luxurious “his and her” bathrooms. The womans bathroom has a tub and the mens bath contains a shower. There is a wood-burning fireplace in the bedroom for romantic, winter nights.

Also on the second level is a separate casita (small house) with a large main living area with full kitchen , living area, dining area and a bedroom and bath. There is a private patio adjoining the casita which looks down into the courtyard below. There is Internet service here as well as a Vonage phone. Additionally, the casita has a separate entrance allowing the occupants to come and go without disturbing the occupants in the main house. This lovely and well appointed casita is available for rent separately from the main house. The cost for the casita alone is dependent on the number of people and the length of the stay and includes a housekeeper once a week. Contact me with your proposed dates for a quote.

On the roof accessible from the main house is a patio looking out onto all of San Miguel. It faces southwest, so the sunsets are quite remarkable. There is a sitting area surrounded by bougainvillias, the perfect place to have your evening wine or margaritas. And if you are planning to prepare your dinner at home, there is a garden from which you can pick your organic lettuce for a salad!

The very friendly housekeeper, Lillia, comes twice weekly on Monday and Thursday and will also do your laundry and any ironing at that time. Should you desire her more often for an additional fee, that can be discussed with her.

The calendar for the property makes the assumption that the entire house is rented when it is shown as reserved…..if you are interested in either the casita or the separate bedroom and bath, you are welcome to contact me to find out about availability.

About Carol Deal

I moved to San Miguel almost 19 years ago and have happily called it my home since then. I am an artist and have my studio on my property and share it with my 2 dogs, Maggie and Mister, who delight in keeping me company while I am working.

Carol Deal purchased this house in 2000

Why Carol Deal chose San Miguel de Allende

My husband (now deceased) and I built this house 14 years ago after much time spent searching for the perfect piece of land. We wanted something that was in the Centro area of town and at the same time, very private and this property satisfied that criteria.

I believe that this property is unique in that it is primarily my home and not simply a rental. Because of that, it is filled with treasures from all over the world, providing the guests who do come here with a very personalized space for their vacation.

Like many others, we originally came to San Miguel for a vacation and immediately fell in love with the town and its ambiance. I am still enchanted with it after almost 19 years.

What makes this house unique

The sounds of the birds in the trees in the early morning, the incredible view of the entire town from the rooftop area, the 'hacienda' type architecture, the sounds of nearby church bells, the massive old trees in the main courtyard, the hammock where happy reading time is spent and much, much more.

An oasis of a house, within an oasis of a city

  • 5 of 5
I brought my business clients to this home a month ago and we had an extremely enjoyable time. We are photographers, and the rooftop view was actually BETTER than Mirador lookout at the top of the city. The owner was extremely kind and accommodating, and she keeps the grounds full of greenery. The large hammock was well used! I recommend this home to anyone.

This place is absolutely beautiful and an ideal place to stay in SMA! My husband and I rented the casita for 5 weeks and enjoyed every minute of staying here. My girlfriend also came down and rented another part of the house for 10 days and also loved staying here.
It is extremely safe and quiet. It is located on a cul de sac in what we feel is in the best neighborhood in SMA. It is in Centro, very close to El Jardin (about 8 min walk) and near Parque Juarez. Best part is you don't hear any noise. It is like an oasis with beautiful gardens and trees surrounding the place where you enjoy listening to only birds.  The place has courtyards filled with beautiful gardens and trees, and STUNNING views of the city, including the magestic Parroquia, and mountains beyond. Even while taking a shower (which by the way, has excellent hot water and water pressure) you can admire these great views. The owner is an artist, and I felt like I was staying in a boutique apartment with the pieces of art and antiques displayed everywhere. You feel pampered in the incredibly comfortable bed, down pillows, down comforter, nice towels, and all the amenities (including free calls to US and excellent internet).

The owner is also incredibly nice and friendly and always cheerfully provided us with whatever we needed and asked for but also really respected our privacy.
Highly recommend!!!! 5 STARS!!!!!

My property is located in a prestigious area of the city and is a 9 minute walk to the center of town. The largest and very beautiful park is a 5 minute walk from the house. The property is very private with high walls and a quiet contemplative atmosphere and yet only steps away from the excitement of San Miguel.

Aside from the listed attractions in San Miguel, there is a multitude of activities to suit most any interest. Numerous art galleries with openings on several nights of the week, local tours as well as tours outside the town, remarkable musical events with performers from all over the world, live theatre, horseback riding in the nearby mountains, cooking classes and much more. You will not have time to do all that you want!!! The local English newspaper has all the events listed for the week, so it is easy to plan your stay here.

I believe that my home offers many things that most rentals do not provide. It is truly my home and is filled with treasures from all over the world which make it a very personal 'home away from home.' Additionally, although it is in what is referred to as 'Centro', it is very private and secure.
