Overview

San Miguel de Allende House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, sleeps 6

Your vacation home is a sunlit jewel of a house in the heart of the colorful and much sought-after neighborhood of Colonia San Antonio.

Step through the colonial-style wooden door into a welcoming private courtyard that leads you into your vacation home.

The first floor is designed for one-floor living with a dining area, living room with fireplace, master bedroom with en suite bath, laundry and rustic French doors leading to the garden. Great care has been taken to make certain that the kitchen is fully equipped with quality cooking utensils and dinnerware - everything you need for any type of at-home entertaining. The charming first floor patio is accessed through the master bedroom or the kitchen and features a 'weeping wall' fountain with cool water cascading over a rock wall to create a relaxing environment for your morning coffee.

The second floor is flooded with sunlight through multiple skylights and French doors. Each of the two bedrooms has its own balcony. A spacious, plant-filled terrace completes the second floor.

The rooftop terrace offers spectacular views of the San Miguel landscape and opportunities for sunbathing, afternoon cocktails or starlight dinners.

If you are planning to drive while visiting San Miguel, Casa Jorge has a secure garage - a rare feature in San Miguel rentals.

Casa San Jorge is just as described.

  • 4 of 5
Casa San Jorge was a great fit for us to settle into the month of March 2014 in SMA. We are just a couple, but for part of the time we had two individual guests stay with us and the three bedrooms, 4 baths, living areas inside and outside accommodated all of us comfortably. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds and linens and clean, tiled, bathrooms and showers, and private outdoor decks. The house has modern furnishings, clean and well maintained, tasteful but simple Mexican art that adds to the ambience of where you're living. With the roof top terrace, mid level terrace and main floor outside dining area with BBQ, it increases the overall living area and allows one to easily move inside or out and enjoy the wonderful climate. A couple things that would improve the kitchen is a dish washer, some sharp knives and some bakeware for cooking in the oven, but it is easy to get by without these.

The location has the feel of the true local neighborhood it is, busy with shops where people work at their trades, very convenient local stores for fruit, vegetables, groceries and any daily needs, people are friendly, it is safe, and it is an easy 20 min walk to the central garden and heart of the city. Also taxis are plentiful and easy to catch near the house. We like the Colonia San Antonio area.

We thought the house was a very good value for the price, and we have stayed in several others. It was always comfortable to come back to after being out in the town, and it was fun. It felt like our home while we lived the month in SMA. We will take Casa San Jorge again if we have the chance.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review! I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay and always appreciate hearing from my guests.

As suggested, I'll be purchasing some bakeware as well as making certain that the kitchen knives are sharper.

As far as the dishwasher... I love my dishwasher at home in Canada and wouldn't give it up for anything but, as part of the water and electricity conservation efforts of the San Miguel area, it's unlikely I'll purchase one for the house. As part of my own conservation efforts when I stay at the house, I usually even use my dish water to water the plants (although I certainly don't expect my guests to do the same). :)

Hasta luego!

Highly recommended for comfort, safety, value

  • 4 of 5
This rental met all of my important requirements. The neighborhood is residential, safe and quiet (except for barking dogs, at night -- but that's true anywhere in Mexico), and the house, though it had every modern convenience except a dishwasher, fit beautifully into its charming colonial setting. The city's stunning central square, with its cathedral and "jardin", is only about a 20-minute walk away, but if you're not up to that, taxis are plentiful and very cheap.
The house was spotless when we arrived, and the weekly maid service was excellent, though if you have special requests it would help to speak a little Spanish. The property manager, however, speaks excellent English, knows every detail of life in San Miguel, and turned up with a bouquet of roses the evening we arrived! Can't ask for better than that!
There's a local convenience store a block away, and two excellent restaurants. El Rinconcito (Refugio Norte 7) and El Buen Cafe (San Jorge 26), both of them very nearby.
The house has several terraces and a roof patio -- perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. The ground floor back garden has a water feature which attracts doves and humming birds.
The beds are new, as is the linen. The decor nods respectfully to the local culture, without going overboard. The owner clearly has taste, and values comfort.
I can highly recommend Casa San Jorge. Our party of three would go back at the drop of a "sombrero"!

Top-notch digs - classy, comfortable, cozy casa

  • 4 of 5
This pleasant house lived up to its description. It was spacious yet cozy, classy yet casual, and not trying to show off too much. We found it clean and well-maintained, with an excellent local house manager who speaks English well and is attentive to visitor needs, although in our case they were very few. Each bedroom has its own spacious bathroom. The decor is tasteful without being kitchy or ostentatious (the living room just needs an extra area lamp or two). The roof-top patio, recently painted, walled and tiled, has a great view of the sunset as well as offering a glimpse of the downtown church towers. Colonia San Antonio is a handy 20-minute walk from El Jardin and is a modest, safe-feeling residential area not over-run by ex-pats. There are several small but tasty local restaurants, including one we discovered on our last night a block up the street, called El Buen Cafe, a favourite of expats. The kitchen is well-equipped and it has a snug adjoining patio with a water-fall wall and frequented by delightful hummingbirds (a San Miguel speciality, it turns out). I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a comfortable, reasonably-priced, well-maintained house in beautiful San Miguel de Allende.

Recently returned from our second stay at Casa San Jorge and it felt like we were back home! The house was just as wonderful as we remembered, and we have already booked for next year. Thank you to owner Barry, and his wonderful house manager Alfredo for ensuring that our every need was met!

Casa San Jorge

  • 5 of 5
I rarely write a review, blog or tweet unless I am passionate about something and I think that it is worth sharing. I want to share my experience with everyone who is looking for a place to rent in San Miguel de Allende.

The moment I stepped into the front courtyard of Casa San Jorge I knew I had made the right choice. I had originally planned on taking many days trips to other parts of Mexico but as soon as I saw the house I realized that I was staying in such a beautiful home that I didn't need to travel around to enjoy myself.

The house is very spacious with cathedral ceilings, a rooftop patio with a view of the city and mountains, two courtyards and a private patio on the second floor. My biggest dilemna was where to sitt and enjoy the outdoors since there were so many options. I opted for a schedule - mornings in the back courtyard to enjoy the hummingbirds, afternoons on the patio having a leisurely lunch and evenings on the rooftop to gaze at the stars.

It took my a couple of days to walk through the house to enjoy the decorations which consisted of Mexican paintings, tapestry, pottery and handmade furniture. It is very luxurious but very homey due to the subdued earthy colours of the walls and furnishings.

Even though I was in the middle of a town close to the centre, the house was so private and peaceful that I felt like I was in my own private retreat. So I decided to take this opportunity to write. I have been writing a novel for the past several years. I am grateful for the time that I spent at Casa San Jorge. In a short time, I worked on the fifth and hopefully final draft of my novel.

When I wasn't working on my book, I walked to the historic centre and markets or I took a bus to the hot springs that are less than 20 minutes from the main bus station.

My only regret is that I didn't stay longer. I will know better next time. Whether you are a writer or looking for your own private oasis, Casa San Jorge is the ideal house to relax in a town with amazing energy!

Amazing first experience with Homeaway Rental

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from spending a perfect week at this wonderful home. The home we rented from the owner Barry was exactly as described. It was perfectly suited for us and was our oasis at the end of long days of sightseeing. It was well appointed and comfortable and located within walking distance of major attractions, restaurants, and other points of interest. The booking process was so easy and seamless. Having only stayed at hotels in the past we were concerned about booking a private home, but were delighted with the ease. Barry was a pleasure to deal with. Once we arrived we had everything we needed. His personal touch went above and beyond with his house manual that answered every question we had about the house and the area. The view from the rooftop terrace was lovely. The patio outside of the kitchen with its gorgeous waterwall was our haven every morning, drinking our coffee and planning our day. We looked forward to having drinks and dinner there at night when it was lit up - very relaxing way to end the day. We highly recommend this home and hope that you enjoy your trip to San Miguel as much as we did.
We`ll be back......
