San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description
House—2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 2-4), 2.5 Baths. Well-behaved children are welcome.
Enjoy a fabulous and relaxing vacation in this charming and tranquil home in San Miguel de Allende. Nestled in the Sierra Madres, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a wonder of cobblestone streets, winding alleys, extraordinary vistas, and international charm. Year-round the flawless climate attracts visitors from around the world who come here to enjoy the cultural richness of this “jewel of colonial Mexico.” Located in a quiet neighborhood close to the Historic Centro, our home is just a short walk to the Instituto Allende, shopping and dining along Zacateros, and the vibrant nightlife of El Jardin. Enjoy concerts, lectures, plays, readings, dance, and art openings held on a regular basis. The most popular restaurants, galleries, and cultural venues are all close by. For the more active there are gyms, tennis, golf, spas, and swimming. And just outside of town you can horseback ride across a magnificent canyon ranch with our friends Srs. Tomas and Felix Morin. Don’t miss the wonderful hot springs that dot the surrounding countryside; La Gruta is our favorite. Our lovely housekeeper Carmen will see to your comfort and we’ll direct you to all the “secret” finds that make our time in San Miguel so special.
One of the joys of our house is its wonderful indoor/outdoor accessibility. As you enter there is a small plant-filled patio adjacent to the very private guest suite. There you’ll find a gas fireplace for the winter months, a small dressing room with built in closets, and a large, beautifully tiled bathroom. From the patio, the outdoor staircase (abundant with fern) takes you to the open design living room, kitchen (with new appliances) and dining area. There is a powder room and French doors to a second small patio dominated by a beautiful mosaic mural by local artist Lucinda Johnson. The tiled kitchen faces a spacious and comfortable seating area that’s filled with sunlight all day long. A second stair takes you to the upper terrazzo and fountain adjacent to the master bedroom suite. From here you can view the city and the mountains beyond. The bedroom itself features large closets, contemporary design, gas fireplace, and a window seat for reading and gazing across to the Parroquia, which is spectacularly lit at night. The spacious tiled bath is a prize. From the terrazzo a small circular staircase leads to the rooftop concina. Here you’ll enjoy panoramic 360-degree views that are among the best in San Miguel. Enjoy the sunset from here while sipping a margarita. That’s what we call paradise!
