About Lynn Donovan

Hello, my name is Lynn. I am the former owner of a very successful Commercial Real Estate Company in New Jersey which I recently sold. I have over 25 years of Commercial Real Estate experience and over 200 million dollars in personal sales. My expertise was in listing, contract negotiations, marketing and property development. I was all about business, however, I wanted to do something more creative and fun.

Back in 1998 while traveling from Kauai I had a conversation with a woman who was in the high end home vacation rental business. She had homes all over the world and this intrigued me. I started to research information and bought my first property in Goodyear, Az., Estrella Mountain Ranch; it is a custom home with a pool and spa with great views and privacy! I went on and purchased Poipu Villa Vista in Kauai, Hawaii with ocean, golf course, mountain and crater views and an international vacation home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, with a rooftop deck and views of the entire city. Our latest purchase was in Lake Como, New Jersey it is a seaside community just a half block from the lake and eight blocks from the ocean.

Owning vacation properties gives me a chance to be creative in renovating and decorating these custom homes to correspond with thier locations. Our goal is to have the stay for our guests become a special and unique experience and create memories for them that they will cherish forever. We live in a stressful world and each property has a calming effect that our guests love. They let us know we have achieved this by thier comments!

Lynn Donovan purchased this house in 2006

Why Lynn Donovan chose San Miguel de Allende

Three of us, a married couple and a single friend, stayed 4 nights at Casa Puesta del Sol in December 2016, and it was perfect. The decor and furnishings are high end and very comfortable, and it was very clean and well-maintained. The two master bedrooms felt luxurious, and we really enjoyed the fire places in the bedrooms while we got ready for bed each night. They warmed up the rooms just right, so that we could turn them off before we went to sleep and be plenty warm all night. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom with the huge tub was great---not so great for showering (couldn't get much water pressure from the giant shower head), but when we resolved ourselves to bathing it was wonderful! The water stayed nice and hot, and you could really get comfortable soaking in it. I haven't taken a bath in years, but this was quite a luxury after walking up and down the cobblestone streets all day. The kitchen was very functional, but the restaurants in San Miguel were so reasonable, it was easy and affordable just to go out to eat. We did have coffee in the house every morning and sometimes breakfast. One minor inconvenience is that we couldn't find any sugar in the house and had to go buy some just for our coffee. As someone mentioned in a previous review, you need to bring pretty much your own shampoo, sugar, etc., as it is a house, not a hotel, although salt and pepper and sugar might be a simple added convenience. The rooftop terrace had a breathtaking view, and although it might have have nice to be a little closer to the historic center, it was an easy and interesting walk downhill. We did take taxis on the return as the house is up a pretty steep hill. Overall, we had a great time at Casa Puesta del Sol and would certainly recommend it to friends.

Owner's Response: First of all I want to take the opportunity to thank this guest for leaving a very comprehensive review. I really appreciate the five stars but also a few things mentioned that we can improve. I already emailed the property manager in san miguel about the water pressure and also ton make sure that there is sugar, salt and pepper when guests arrive. Thank you again for a wonderful review and we hope to see you again sometime.

My family has just stayed one week in the Casa Puesta del Sol and we had a great experience of comfort and privacy.

The architecture, decoration, furniture and equipment is well chosen and equilibrated, transforming the house in a very warm and nice place to stay.

A few minor issues to comment. The TV sets are very small and the refrigerator was not cooling as it should be. Walking distance to downtown is a long way (20 to 30 minutes down the street) and we normally used Ubher or taxis to return home, especially at night. Within walking distance, you will find a couple of corner stores to buy basic groceries but not an extended list.

If you arrive in your car, be aware of the slope of the street that is high. Since most of the city has stone roads, if it is slippery, it may be complicated to arrive at the front house.

Personnel helping us form the rental office, as well as cleaning service were very helpful, friendly and efficient.

We would love to return to the Casa in our next visit to San Miguel.

Beautiful home in the hills

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home with ornate Mexican design. Great roof views of SMA. Kitchen is set up for cooking meals. It is a 10 minute walk up the hill so bring your sneakers. The house was clean and had all the amenities described in the ad. We would rent again.

Beautiful House in a Beautiful City!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Puesta del Sol was absolutely beautiful and met every one of our needs. I cannot recommend this house highly enough for people that want to a great trip to San Miguel de Allende. We needed to arrive and leave a bit earlier and later than the check-in and check-out time. The owner and property manager worked with us to meet our needs. Thank you!!

Great views and super comfy house

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a very nice area in San Miguel. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the master suites are very spacious. We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. The rooftop was beautiful views of San Miguel and there are many exquisite architectonic details around the house. I would definitely recommend it.
