Colonia San Antonio House Rental Photos and Description

Jewel of A House 1 BR 1 1/2 BA

Casa de Paz is a jewel of a house in the heart of the colorful neighborhood of Colonia San Antonio. Located off Pila Seca, this enchanting house embraces you from the moment you enter the beautiful wooden door. You find yourself in a plant filled atrium with a rock garden filled with colorful flowers and a three tiered cascading waterfall pond. The tiled patio leads you into a small house with all kinds of interesting architectural details (pillars, arches, etc.) The first floor has a master bedroom with glass French doors that open to the Rock Garden waterfall pond, making the bedroom seem like a large nature atrium. The second room on the first level functions as a study/bedroom with a desk, and couch that pulls out to a single bed. There is a tiled bathroom and ample closet.

The second level is an open floor plan with lots of light that floods the interior space from a large beautifully tiled skylight.

The open floor plan flows from the living room that has an adobe fireplace and a comfortable sofa (that pulls out to a double bed) to the dining area (table seats six), to the fully-equipped tiled kitchen. A second floor outdoor patio dining area overlooks the cascading waterfall rock garden below.

A spiral staircase leads to a rooftop terrace that has a beautiful view of the Centro City and the Parroquoia (16th Century Church). There is also a half bath on the second level. It is a ten minute walk to the Jardin (the center of town).

A little peace of paradise

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. It was a 10 minute walk uphill from the city center. It was in a quiet safe neighborhood. Definitely worth the stay. I hope to return again next year!

A Real Mexican Home

  • 5 of 5

San Miguel is a colorful town. This house was a gem in the middle of it all! A close walk to restaurants, shops, vendors, the center garden and taxis made it a lovely spot. When home, you are in your own oasis. Cooking in the open kitchen was great. Shop at Mega for all your needs . We loved the tamale shop on Canal for a quick take out meal. The staff was just like family!

We loved this house!! A quick walk to the center with restaurants, shops, street vendors and taxis. The kitchen has everything you need if you like to cook. Visit the Mega store for your supplies. We loved the restaurant Hecho en Mexico and the staff at this house were lovely. Gracias!

Great stay in San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Casa de Paz and found it to be an excellent location in San Miguel. We are seniors who like to walk, and we were able to get to the centre of town in about 15 minutes. ( Good walking shoes are recommended to deal with cobblestones.) The house is very comfortable, with a lovely private garden and fountain inside the entrance door, comfortable sitting room and good kitchen leading to a small outdoor breakfast patio, and an upstairs roof terrace - both with abundant flowering plants. The bedroom was comfortable and quiet. We didn't need the pull-out extra bed, but it was available. Housekeeper Avelina came three times a week to clean, and was very helpful in responding to any questions we had.

Ariel, the owner, provided us with lots of information about the house, and many excellent suggestions for shopping, dining and places to see in San Miguel and the surrounding area. One of her best suggestions was to hire Fernando Ibarra as a guide. We did this one day, and he took us to Dolores Hidalgo and Guanajuato. We can't say enough about this trip - Fernando was so knowledgeable about the area and the history, and his suggestions for places to visit were excellent. His charming and entertaining personality made this a special day for us. We had used a shuttle service to get from Mexico City to San Miguel, but on a future visit we would certainly ask Fernando to provide this service for us.

San Miguel de Allende Rental

  • 4 of 5

My adult son and I stayed 10 nights at Casa de Paz. The listing description was accurate and the photos accurately reflected everything and we had everything we needed for our stay. Fernando met us at the Queretaro Airport on schedule and let us into the house as it was a Sunday afternoon. We talked with Pilar, the manager, to request a second set of keys which were delivered the next morning. The property was clean and Amada, the maid, was accommodating to our needs. Ariel Abramsky, owner, was helpful before our arrival and we had no problems. We have been to San Miguel many times and try out different rentals. As Casa de Paz is small, possibly when we return we would rent Ariel's other house on the same street as it is much more spacious, with washer/dryer, and not all that much more expensive. We did not see many foreigners there, I suppose because of the drug-related violence in Mexico reported by the media. But we had no fears in SMA. Thank you, Ariel

Owner's Response: Hi Kathryn, So glad you had a good trip with your son. I am so happy you had such a positive experience at Casa de Paz. You are certainly a seasoned traveler to San Miguel, staying in many different areas so that your review means a lot! You also realize that San Miguel is safe. Many of my guests now are Canadian or European because they realize San Miguel is safe and beautiful and charming as it has always been. I hope you return to Casa de Paz or Casa Ariel!! Saludos, Ariel
