CASA MONET is a beautiful one bedroom apartment located at Zacateros St, and the entrance to the Barrio de la Aldea. It is above the famous Cafe Monet, which is known for its beautiful art and European ambiance, not to mention its fabulous food.
From the fountained entry foyer, you will step into the beautiful living room, with a gas fireplace, dining area and kitchen, all open to each other. The patio off the living room and bedroom looks over the Rinconada, a private walkway which is quiet and safe.
There are two patios, one off the bedroom, and one off the living room. The bedroom has a queen-sized bed with beautiful woodwork and a lovely bathroom that is adjacent to it. Another 1/2 bath is off the living room. Upstairs, there is a roof-top terrace which offers views of the surrounding city.
Casa Monet is located across from the Instituto de Allende, and is just a 5 minute walk to the famous Jardin. Great shopping, restaurants and groceries are nearby and we offer a 'Combo' breakfast of your choice for a small extra fee, for you and your companion, 7 days a week at Cafe Monet.
A housekeeper is available 2 days a week, and there are laundry facilities for your use.
My husband and I have been in the rental property and construction business in Boulder Colorado for 40 years. I have been staging homes for sale for several years. When we purchased a home in San Miguel and built a restaurant, we decided to expand our business into San Miguel. We are very proud of our vacation properties and enjoy renting them.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007
My brother and I bought the building to build a restaurant. We decided to re-model the 3 apartments above the restaurant. Two of the apartments are rented year around and the 3rd is used as a vacation rental. The location is central to the City and is a wonderful and easy area to access.
This rental unit is wonderfully located for access to most areas of the City of San Miguel. It is above our restaurant, Cafe Monet, which has become a destination for many of the City locals. We have wonderful food, a beautiful atmosphere and are well known for our great breakfasts. We offer complimentary breakfast and coffee to our guests 6 days a week. The unit is beautifully furnished and has every amenity that can be offered for a trouble-free vacation.
We have been visiting SMA yearly for the past 10 years or so.... We have rented everything from Casitas, to full Casa's, to new Condo's all around SMA... Case Monet is by far, one of our most pleasant experiences... Location was ideal, apartment was as advertised, cozy, comfortable, and had all we needed to for a pleasant 5 week stay... Bill Mendenhall the owner and manager of the Cafe Monet lives directly across the foyer and he could not be more pleasant and helpful in making your stay a great visit... We had a chance to meet Kati, the owner of the apartments in one of her visits to SMA and she was also very attentive to our needs and had people in to fix a couple of detail issues as soon as she was aware of them... All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and are already planning for next years trip... As mentioned, in the past we would look for different places in different areas to get to know the whole city better, however, we will probably try to rent this same apartment next year, if available, for our dates.... I would highly recommend the apartment and the owners to any and all of our friends visiting SMA... Ps....bonus feature....Bill's Dinner and a Movie on Monday Nights.....hope for the Cajun Meatloaf...
We stayed here for 1 week and it was better than home.This place has everything you will need I give this place a 5 star rating.Located right in the heart of town with good eats downstairs at Cafe Monet.
Kati and Bill were very nice and friendly enjoyed talking about different vacation spots.
It was a pleasure doing business with you and hope to see you again in the future.
The listing photos and descriptions were accurate and the place was very clean and well maintained
by owner.I would highly recommend this place to my family, friends and relatives.AAA+++
We stayed at Casa Monet last September and enjoyed all the Bi-Centennial celebrations in San Miguel. The accommodations were lovely and better than anticipated. The apartment was outstanding and centrally located within walking distance to just about everythig. Every possible convenience was available to us and if we needed something in addition, the service was excellent. Breakfasts at Cafe Monet were great and we enjoyed several other meals there as well. Bill was a delight and his staff, well trained and genuinely accommodating to guests. Meals at Casa Monet are very special given the social intereaction between guests and without realizing it, new friendships are born. We enjoyed our two weeks and look forward to returning. MK
