House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Attractive, completely furnished, two bedroom, two bath house bordering the Centro area of San Miguel. From its location in the San Antonio district it is an easy (5 min.) walk to the Instituto Allende (Art and Language School), and a 10-13 minute walk to the Jardin (center of town). It is a easy, level walk to the Warren-Hardy Language School.
The house is located in a neighborhood containing both Mexican families and foreign residents. It is a safe area and close to a produce and flower market. (I will be happy to provide directions to the closest grocery shopping!) In this casa you will get a taste of everyday Mexican culture, yet be within walking distance of the primary sights and events that San Miguel has to offer.
You will have panoramic 360 degree views of the city and surrounding mountains from the roof terrace and second-floor patio. Living room with cable TV, gas heat, full kitchen, office alcove, telephone, and high speed internet hookup. Once a week maid service provided with rental, more often if you wish to arrange this with the maid. Rentals include utilities, excepting phone beyond basic monthly local service, and any usage beyond the first tank of gas (usually free for all but long-term rentals).
You have seen that our prices are among the lowest on this website. We would rather have happy renters than hold out for a higher price.

Cozy multi-level house with 2 nicely decorated bedrooms. Very centrally located.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Amistad. The manger Flor was very attentive and accommodated us at late check in time. We parked car at the front door and walked everywhere, not moving until we departed. Quiet neighborhood away from main drag. Clean, nicely decorated home. We would like to go back to this casa again in the not too far off future.
Stuart we are delighted that you had such a positive experience at Casa Amistad .
There is something so magical about San Miguel and I always feel like the real heart of the place is in the neighborhoods, like our San Antonio neighborhood.
Thank you for taking such good care of your temporary home, and we would be delighted to welcome you back again.
Enjoyable once again!
We stayed at Casa De Amistad last year and felt fortunate to be able to book it again this year as we have heard that it is very difficult to find accommodation unless you book a year in advance. We loved the location as it is a short walk to San Antonio, organic market, the Centro. As always Flor met us upon our arrival to give us the orientation. We had to call her once throughout our visit and she responded very quickly to our problem with the wifi connection that was solved very quickly. The residential neighbourhood was not as quiet this year with construction next door and nightly barking dogs! We were out usually all day so construction was not a bother but you could not sleep with windows open due to the street noise and barking dogs. We noticed this year that the bathrooms are in need of some upgrades. The shower tiles, bathtub need to be grouted again, cleaned or redone completely. This would greatly improve the over all appearance of the bathrooms. We spent many nightly hours on the rooftop and would highly suggest more comfortable chairs with seat pads. The rooftop is large enough to accommodate more seating or lounge chairs.
Thanks again and hoping to return again,
Myrna & Terry
Thanks terry..I appreciate your comments and will indeed address the seating and the bathroom suggestions.
Sorry about the noise next door...all of San Miguel feels like it is under construction. Hopefully that will slow down a bit soon.
Hope you decided to join us again.
Convenient Urban Location with Views, Multi-spaces & Amenities
It's like having your own vacation property in San Miguel, except you get a bonus manager (Flor) and owner (Tina) who strive to make your visit pleasant and burden free. The value is good and appropriate.
Your pleasant experience starts with speedy and good communication with Tina. We booked well in-advance; Tina kept in-touch, helped with suggestions and delivered as promised. Flor met us at the property, showed us how everything worked and provided her contact details, just in case. The property was fine, we never had cause to contact Flor until we reconfirmed our check-out.
The property is as represented, with the small caveat that the bed in the second bedroom won't sleep two individuals, unless both want to be intimate with the other. To be clear, if one individual intending to sleep in the second bed is much bigger than 5'10" or 150 lbs, or if you have teenage brother and sister, then only one will fit in the bed and the other will be on the couch cushions downstairs.
The view is great as represented, with the caveat that it's not 360 degrees panoramic. The view to the St. Michael Archangel church is not obstructed as of Nov 2017 (and it's better than conveyed on the website photos); but the view is channeled between the rising fourth stories of neighbors. You can't see the whole downtown; but the roof patio is large and fine to enjoy the sunrise or sunset over the St. Michael Archangel church; plus, the view about the town is also good.
When booking and enjoying this property, recall my description that it's just "like having your own vacation property." It's not your best linens, couches, mattresses, appliances, etc. Everything is clean and fresh; house appearance is fine (and in keeping with San Miguel ambiance).
Everything works great, for a vacation. Don't use hot water at bedtime; the hot water heater works great but it's noisy! Expect some toilet smell in the guest bathroom. Don't expect a hotel or the house to be like your main home.
You are in a residential neighborhood: very safe at all times. It also means that it's not quiet. Cobblestone streets amplify road noise and almost all neighbors own a non-stop barking dog. Watch your steps too: don't twist an ankle nor step on a sidewalk pet mess.
The property is not a long distance nor steep walk from central downtown (Jardin), although at the end of a long day you are grateful that it's mostly downhill back to Casa Amistad. For us, it was no more than ten minutes downtown.
Fantastic price for comfortable stay in super cute, well-situated house
We were 2 couples staying in Casa Amistad for 4 days and enjoyed it thoroughly. We loved the rooftop terraces. The view to the Parroquia and for sunsets were fantastic. Beds were comfortable; showers were hot; everything was very clean; well-stocked. The owner provides a 5 gallon garrafon of drinking water and there are basic cooking supplies as well (coffee, sugar, oil, spices.)
We spent almost all day out of the house and the location is fantastic. It's a short walk to Centro, and close to a large local market. In the immediate area are a tienda for basics (beer), and several good restaurants right on the same street. The street is quiet at night - no roosters, barking dogs, or honking trucks. (Of course, being Mexico, you never know when there will be fireworks or a party.)
Would easily recommend Casa Amistad without hesitation. Communication with Laurie (the owner) and Flor (the house manager) was quick and easy.
Rebecca thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at Casa Amistad. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your visit and had a chance to explore the neighborhood as well as the whole of San Miguel . We hope you will consider us should you be visiting San Miguel again.

Ivonne, thank you for your lovely words. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us and the wonderful city of San Miguel de Allende. I always wish there were more hours in the day, there is so much to do and explore in our wonderful city. Thank you for being such wonderful guests. It would be a pleasure to have you return.
A perfect holiday!
My friend and I have just returned from a two week holiday in San Miguel. Her daughter asked us to pick our favorite day and we told her that would be difficult because there was something special about every day. There is so much to see and do in San Miguel and our accommodation was perfectly situated to be able to walk to just about everything we did. The accommodation was very comfortable and well equipped with all the comforts of home. We really enjoyed the rooftop terrace where we usually started and ended the day. The kitchen had everything we needed and grocery stores and markets were close by.
A taxi or bus is very affordable if the distance to far to walk. We took a bus to the weekly Tuesday market and a taxi to the Equinox celebration which involved a beautiful concert where everyone sits on the rocks over looking the stage. It was quite spectacular! Another day we signed up for a historical walking tour which was both informative and interesting. There also wonderful restaurants throughout San Miguel.
Thank you to Flor for always being available whenever we had a question and thank you to Tina for providing us with such a pleasant home away from home. Terry and Myrna
