About Sandi Burton
We are both born and raised Seattleites who love to travel. Believe it or not, we met at school. Community College while both of us were temporarily unemployed. I was there for 1 quarter and we shared 2 of 3 classes. Michael was the consummate gentlemen who carried my books from class to my car and I guess that just sealed the deal. We've been married since 2011 and enjoy spending time in the mountains near home, with our kids and our parents or just hanging out discussing the merits of American politics and daily news. Michael has been building planes for Boeing for going on 20 years and my career has been mostly in food and beverage originally in sports and entertainment having run the facilities at the Seattle Center, University of Washington, Dallas Reunion Arena and opening Safeco Field for the Seattle Mariners. We've both had the opportunity to do a lot of things, but this is the beginning of a new phase for us. As our kids are growing up and our parents aging, we have turned our thoughts to what we want out of our retirement and a global life is what calls. We hope you enjoy our San Miguel home as much as we do.
Sandi Burton purchased this House in 2017
Why Sandi Burton chose Zona Centro
It's a good story actually... We had been researching retirement locations for some time. Having looked in several Mexico locations, Panama and Ecuador, but we have friends here in San Miguel who kept talking up the merits of the location. Over dinner with these friends at their home on Camano Island in Washington Michael said "go buy us a house in Mexico" so plane tickets were purchased and the two wives set off on a mission. We flew in on Tuesday night, looked at houses on Wednesday, made an offer on Thursday and were in contract by Friday. The most spontaneous thing I have ever done in my life, but everything about it felt right, you see I had come back to this house time and time again in my online search and once I saw it, nothing else could compare. I knew it was where I wanted to be.
What makes this House unique
The master bedroom is amazing. To wake up and walk out on that gorgeous terrace, gaze over the courtyard and the city. It is our little piece of heaven.

Thank you Ann!
Lovely home in San Miguel
The property was really lovely with balconies, terraces and fountains. The owner’s personal touches were charming. Good location for the event we were attending. Appreciated personal contact with owner and property manager.
Thank you so much Arlene! We are so pleased that you enjoyed the house and the event in SMA!
Perfect location, beautiful house
We stayed a week in July 2019. The house is spectacular, and the neighborhood is, for us, perfect. A short walk from the center of town but we appreciated being able to get away from the bustle of the central square at the end of the day. The owner and/or the property manager answered every question immediately. Truly a five star experience.
Thanks so much Joel! Happy you enjoyed your time in SMA & our little piece of it. Hope you come back again!
Chorro-Mexico at its finest
Chorro is beyond beautiful in its carefully furnished & decorated interior & exterior. The rooftop patio was perfect for enjoying the stunning views of San Miguel & the many birds that frequent the garden. This casa was one of the finest places we have ever rented!
Thank you so much Mary! Thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay. Come & visit again if you make your way back to SMA, we’d love to have you!
WOW... is a perfect way to explain the whole experience! I was wowed when I first saw Casa Illuminada pictures and then had the privilege of organizing the whole stay with Sandi and her incredible team!
Upon arrival, we were met by Jose and Charly. Wine, guacamole and a feeling of being welcomed by gracious hosts was such a special way to be welcomed to this amazing home! Walking into the house, is exactly as the pictures show...the care and detail are prevalent everywhere you look!
I cannot say enough good about the whole experience! This was my first time to San Miguel...I've had thoughts about becoming an expat. The incredible experience of this home, this staff, this city and country makes me want to make a new home here and be able to live my life with truly gracious people!
I could go on and on about the beauty that awaits you! Trust Sandi and her staff to help you find it!
Oh my gosh Brian - WOW is all I can say back :)
Thank you so much for this amazing review. We are grateful beyond measure that you were so pleased with the house and with SMA - it is a wonderful place! Please come back and see us again, we'd love to have you!
