Views include the Parroquia, Parque Juarez, with spectacular views of the Sierra Madre Mountains; nearly every window in the home has beautiful scenery to enhance the enjoyment of your visit! Yet, the location is near the Centro, Art Institute and everything else San Miguel has to offer.

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 Colonia Caracol

Wonderful, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in San Miguel. Lynn's home is comfortable, well stocked and quiet. There were some very cold nights during our stay and the gas fireplaces worked great and kept us nice and warm. We enjoyed the different sitting areas inside and out and the beautiful view. I would stay here again.

Wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful with fantastic views of San Miguel and the sunset as the name suggests. The housekeeper and gardener were very helpful and pleasant. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking. It was really nice to have a washer and dryer to clean clothes.

For people not in reasonable physical condition, the hill on which the house is located could be very challenging, both going down and up. Seriously, if you are less than sure footed or cannot withstand the strain of climbing the equivalent of 7 to 10 flights of stairs you will have to have a taxi to come and go. Taxis are easy to get.

On the down side the address in Home Away is incorrect and caused a lot of problems finding the property. The correct address is 17 Ojo de Agua. The bed in the first floor bedroom is terrible even for young people. Those are my only two complaints.

All told, Casa del Pueste is a great place to stay. Very enjoyable.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

The women in our group loved the place, the decoration, details etc. The men found the place very comfortable and practical. We did not have the opportunity to enjoy the patio roof in the evenings but was a great area for morning coffee, it has a great view but we were walking around almost all day and we did not have time. The two bedrooms upstairs are big and very nice (bathtub, fireplace , TV), the one bedroom on the first floor is a bit small but really cozy (per the women) we were three couples an just flipped coins to see who got what bedrooms, but in the end everyone was really comfortable. We rented a car but ended up just walking to downtown and other places (15 min max to downtown) an you don't event feel it. this city is all about walking and not driving. Excellent place. Thank you.

Beautifully kept, loved the authentic decor !

  • 5 of 5

My family all loved the house, was just beautiful with an easy walk to town. Then we cabbed it back each evening because of the steep roads. Felt very safe, would definitely stay there again!
