Overview

Los Mezquites House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Located in Colonial San Antonio at the top of Orizaba at San Felipe, this new home is only a 10 min. walk to the Instituto and then a short walk up Zacateros to Centro.

You enter the property through a lovely rock garden where cactus and flowers thrive and the sound of the fountain invite you to relax and stay awhile. From this level, you begin to see why we call it the 'Million Dollar View.'

This 3-story 3-bedroom home has unobstructed views of Centro and most of San Miguel from every level.

All bedrooms have their own bathrooms, gas log fireplaces, individually regulated heated mattress covers on the beds, IPod docking stations and ceiling fans. The TV/family room has a very comfortable fold-out couch to sleep additional guests and has a full bathroom as well.

The ground floor bedroom has a queen bed with a beautiful headboard made from a 150-year-old door. This cozy room has a large armoire for your clothing and its own entrance from the patio.

The master bedroom on the second floor is decorated in blues and the king size bed with its tin starfish designed headboard reflects the owners love of the ocean. There is a beautiful view of the Parroquia through a glass door and wall of windows that lead to the 2nd floor terrace.

When you aren't looking at the view, there is a 42' LCD TV and DVD player in the room for your enjoyment. There is a large tub/shower in the master bath.

The 3rd bedroom also located on the second floor has 2 twin beds and a distictive jungle feel with ceramics of parrots and other wildlife. It also has a glass door and wall of windows for viewing the city and access to the terrace. A 32' LCD TV and DVD player is located in this room.

The living area has comfy soft cushioned Equipale furniture. There is a long cushioned bench with a cocktail table located between the fireplace area and the dining room that is great extra seating for entertaining.

In the dining area you will find a large antique door fashioned into a table that seats 8. A wall of windows overlooks the patio with its large wall fountain. Open the door and listen to the fountain or place your IPod into the sound system and listen to your favorite tunes.

A fully equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare and serve meals for 8 is just off the dining area. With a whole-house water purification and ultraviolet light treatment system, it is safe to drink the water from the faucet.

If cooking isn't your thing, then have Our housekeeper/cook prepare something for you. There are many bilingual cookbooks for your review.

The family room with its full bath and queen sleeper sofa may be closed off and used as an extra bedroom with its own access through the patio. Or, just use it as movie central with its 52' LCD TV, IPod docking station, DVD player and surround sound.

Our house manager can tell you just about anything you want to know about the city. The housekeeper comes 3 days per week and will prepare a meal and wash laundry at your request. For an extra fee, she is available for parties and dinners.

Casa Madonna has a Vonage line with unlimited long distance to the states, computer, fax, printer, high speed internet connection and WIFI. This is all located in a seperate office area for your privacy and convenience.

Why Donna chose San Miguel de Allende

Our family has been coming to San Miguel de Allende for years and decided to buy a home because we love the city's charm and the people. Our daughter loves going to the day school in Centro and learning Spanish with the other children. We have made many friends while visiting SMA and enjoy exploring the surrounding area and its rich culture.

Spacious, welcoming, well-appointed and comfortable home in gorgeous San Miguel de Allende

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to San Miguel de Allende was wonderful, and the highlight was our home away from home, Casa Madonna! It is a spacious, well-appointed and comfortable home only 15-20 minutes easy walk to the restaurants, shops and other points of interest in the city center. All three levels of the home have outdoor spaces to enjoy beautiful weather and views of the San Miguel vistas.

There are many very positive comments about Casa Madonna set forth below -- we wholeheartedly agree with all these glowing reviews!

Great View & Convenience

  • 5 of 5

Casa Madonna has one of the best views in San Miguel. It is on a natural ridge which overlooks the city. The house is designed to take advantage of the views from almost every room. The local bus stop is a half a block away and there is a little tienda on the corner where you can get milk and other supplies.

We have stayed here for the last 3 years and the staff and the owner have always been very responsive. There are 3 full bedrooms each with their own bathroom so it accommodates a number of people. It's a great place to relax and enjoy all the beauty of San Miguel.

Noise

  • 1 of 5

The location was not what I expected. I didn't feel safe. The alarm didn't work, phones didn't work, rooms had water due to leaks from the rain and construction was too loud. The cook was the most amazing part. She was very accommodating. The owner only charged me for the days we stayed until I found another home.

Owner's Response: It is difficult to comment to negative responses without coming off as defensive, yet if you do not respond you come off as not caring. I will try to respond with facts. Our home is located in Colonial San Antonio. We have a map of the location on the website. It was your decision to choose the area; I'm sorry you didn't find it suitable. There was an unusual amount of rainfall that caused many services to be out all around town. My home was no exception. We addressed the sporadic phone service immediately and it was fully restored as soon as humanly possible. Due to the heavy rain, water did come through a window seal. Once you informed my staff, they made every effort to get it sealed and cleaned up. Construction is a daily part of life in San Miguel. It is a Spanish Colonial City made of cobblestone streets and centuries-old buildings. They are repairing old and building new structures all the time. This is out of my control. When you informed me you were moving to another location, I had no problem returning the rent for your unused stay. It wasn't possible for me to give you a refund, if I didn't even know you were leaving. I do hope you enjoyed the remainder of your stay and that you will return to San Miguel de Allende.

Fantastic & Relaxing Casa Madonna

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of Feb & Mar here & are signed up for next year. Tony (Prop Mgr) & Rosaria (maid) went out of their way to take care of us & assist us. Both are delightful and Tony speaks very good English. The home has fantastic views of the downtown & the mountains to the west. We enjoyed many sunsets on the 3rd floor terrace. The house is well laid out and the downstairs has a very open concept. All the rooms are bright & cheerful. It worked well for friends who visited because each of the 3 bedrooms has a private bathroom.

It's about a 20 mn walk to the main Jardin but taxi's are plentiful if needed & there is a local bus that stops on the corner. There is also a great little tienda for buying any last minute supplies from milk to toilet paper on the same corner. Donna, the owner, is very responsive and she has decorated and outfitted the house with everything you could want for a relaxing time.

There are several nice neighborhood restaurants, fruit & vegetable store, etc. San Miguel itself is a wonderful city with lots to do (or not) and great restaurants. We would highly recommend Casa Madonna.

Super Casa Madonna

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in Casa Madonna this past March during the holly week, and I must say that the house is just perfect. It is big enough to have the family very comfortable and happy. The property it is in perfect conditions, all of them. It has everything you would have at home. The house is more beautiful than it seems, and the view, oh well, you'll enjoy the beauty of SMA from every window in the house.

I highly recommend this property, it is such a beautiful house to stay in SMA, also, the town it's just gorgeous, either you decide to visit for a getaway or for seightseeing, Casa Madonna is the perfect place to stay.

Bravo Casa Madonna!

  • 5 of 5

Last July was my second time to stay at the property. It is absolutely stunningly relaxing and beautiful in so many ways - sunset on the observation deck while sipping Tony's homemade margaritas is probably my favorite time of day there. You can see all the major points of interest in San Miguel, the churches, chapels, the different communities, you hear the bells and even the dogs of San Miguel occasionally. It is a perfect rental property if you do not have a car - taxis are in abundance and, for barely just a few dollars, you can ride into town within a few minutes. Upon entering the property, you feel very secure and you are in a tranquil place with water at the entrance as you cross a little bridge. Tony, runs the house and ensures that you have every comfort you need. The rooms are beautifully decorated - you literally just need to arrive with your clothes as everything else is provided. At the end of your stay, it is customary to tip Tony and the cook/chef. The town of San Miguel is magnificent - very old, pebbled streets, lots of quaint cafes, bars, hotels, art galleries, furniture, furnishings, and shops. The doors of San Miguel are very famous - you will find yourself taking pictures of these huge doors on haciendas, etc. Very tourist firendly town. I highly recommend this Casa and hope to return on an annual basis. Cheers!
