Casita Coronado is centrally located in the heart of San Miguel de Allende and just a 10 minute walk to the Jardin and La Parroquia. The Mercado de San Juan de Dios with wonderful fruit, vegetables, and arm loads of fresh flowers, is just a short walk away! The Casita provides convienent access to Spanish langauge schools (Warren Hardy and Centro Mexicano are both five minute walks). Please note: Casita Coronado is accessed via a circular staircase which rises from the ground level to the apartment. The staircase continues up to the private rooftop terrace which has 360 degree views.
The property contains the Casita, the Casa rented separately (see VRBO listing number 196392 for more information), a garage (available if not being used by Casa guests), and the laundry and utility rooms.
The Casita has its own private street entrance, a large cheerful bedroom with queen bed, lots of closet space, a complete kitchen, a comfortable dining area, toll-free calling to the US and Canada, and a great TV/Entertainment area with high-speed internet access. For cold nights we have just installed a safe, efficient, wall furnace. The Casita also has a private rooftop terrace with a tejado, beautiful plantings, and ample seating to enjoy the beautiful San Miguel sunsets.
Our housekeeper comes to clean and change the linens and we can arrange to have someone cook for you. The property is managed by an English speaking manager who is always on call in case you have any problems.
San Miguel de Allende (SMA) is a beautifully restored 400 year old colonial silver city, considered by many to be the prettiest town in Mexico, and it is protected by the government as an Historic Trust site to ensure that it stays that way.
SMA offers an extraordinary array of concerts, live theater, lectures and famous art institutes (Instituto Allende and Bellas Artes). Classes are offered in painting, sculpture, weaving, dance, photography, and ceramics to name a few. There is a wonderful English language library with the largest collection of books in English outside of Mexico City.
Weekly events are published in the bilingual newspaper, “Atencion”, each Friday.
John & Lynn purchased 'Casa Coronado' in 2006. The Casa, with its colorful and spacious Casita, is the perfect getaway for our busy families and is a wonderful base for exploring San Miguel de Allende and the beauty that is Mexico!
John Manning purchased this apartment in 2006
The property is located in a warm and friendly neighborhood. In the years we have owned our San Miguel de Allende home our neighbors (both Mexican and Expatriates) have become dear friends.
If I knew about the outside winding metal staircase to get to the Casita I would not have leased
Perfect location for short or long stay in San Miguel de Allende. My stay at this beautiful casita was enhanced by the maid, the gardener, and manager to make sure that I was accommodated with full service for two months and always with a SMILE. This apartment is about 5 blocks from the main jardin, and was easy walking. This upstairs casita has a full kitchen with every gadget, TV and VCR and lots of movies, free telephone to the USA, and locally. The apartment has a second level terrace with an awesome mountain view and easy lounging. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. This review is for the casita, not the main house.
We spent the month of February in the casita and enjoyed it very much. Perfect for two people. Very comfortable and in a great location. At walking distance to all the interesting places in SMA. Everything worked in the casita, good heaters during a few cold days, very good shower , comfortable bed, nice kitchen. Good housekeeper and very easy to deal with John the owner who was always very responsive and very efficient. I definitely recommend the casita .
We just stayed for a week in a cute and convenient casita in San Miguel. It was perfect for our needs and close to everything. The owner was very responsive and helpful with all our questions. We would stay again for sure!! R & J
Location is the most important criteria in San Miguel. This apartment is walking distance to everything and the perfect distance from el jardin as to be unaffected by nightclub noise on the weekends. I was not woken by loud church bells or barking dogs. This is a peaceful spot! I spent the full month of March, 2014 in the apartment. My college age daughter stayed for a week with me on the living room fold-out futon sofa which was perfect. Let me start with the unique qualities of the apartment. It is exceptionally private. I loved the small outdoor courtyard on the apartment level in addition to the lovely roof-top. I doubt many apartments have such outdoor options or any outdoor space, particularly with such privacy. For a one bedroom, every aspect of the unit is very spacious. The bedroom is very large and includes a desk. There was more than enough room for the massage therapist to set up her table below the skylight. I greatly appreciated the very ample closet space, built-drawers and lockable drawer. The bathroom has a large counter and lots of storage. I loved the large shower. The layout and furnishings of the living/dining/kitchen area are perfect. The kitchen is big enough for several to work in and well equipped. I was delighted that I had access to laundry facilities (in the lower level behind the ping pong room) and even played ping pong once with a friend! I will be back!
We had a marvelous six-week stay at Casita Coronado. The layout and amenities were perfect for us as a couple, especially the spacious rooftop terrace where we spent many sunny and restful hours. Owners John and Lynn were in town during this time, and were very considerate to our needs.
The casita remained cool throughout the days and evenings for this winter period. Two well-placed heaters were a good remedy for comfort, along with good-quality bed coverings. Ana was a diligent and thoughtful housekeeper, who we enjoyed chatting with on her breaks. The quiet and privacy of this place is remarkable, given its proximity to busy communities and roadways. By walking or taking a taxi or bus, you can quickly travel anywhere around SMA.
