About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom (queen bed), 1 Bath

Cinco Flores is a small, secure residential community in the heart of San Miguel's Centro Historico. We are one-half block from the town's Central Jardin. We have five lovely casitas in a lush setting of fountains and plants. Each casita has a private entrance and a private terrace. There is on-site management.

Please see the notes on the "Rates" page for information about the rental agreement we will send you which provides the actual terms of the rental including how to finalize and pay, and the cancelation policy.

Your private entrance to CASITA TULIPAN opens into a modern, elegantly appointed living area decorated with warm Mexican colors and filled with the work of Mexican artisans, painters and photographers. It features a window seat, gas fireplace for cool mornings, a comfortable leather sofa and a flat screen TV.

The eat-in kitchen features hand-painted Majolica tiles and lots of storage space. There is a refrigerator, gas range, microwave and a colorfully cushioned dining area.

Upstairs, the large, sunny bedroom has a queen bed, ensuite bathroom, dressing area, ample clothing storage, plus a built-in corner writing desk.

From the bedroom you walk up to a spectacular, plant-filled private roof terrace. You will find a table, chairs, umbrella - plus an additional private, romantic seating area with a lovely view of the Parroquia.

About Robert Merchasin

We are semi-retired lawyers and real estate developers.

Robert Merchasin purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robert Merchasin chose San Miguel de Allende

The day we first arrived in 2005 we immediately felt a resonance with the ambience of the town. We were right on the cusp of making some kind of life change, and it was at that moment in our life together that we encountered San Miguel. The rest is history.

What makes this condo unique

We have found being so close to the center of town very fun and rewarding. It is quiet where we are, but when we want a little fun or excitement, or just to feel the flavor of San Miguel, we are a 30 second walk from the Jardin.

Classy and Convenient - you will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casita Tulipan for two weeks over Christmas and New Years - a popular time in San Miguel. It is the only one bedroom of the Casita at Cinco Flores - one of five casitas. It was perfect for two people, with three levels, lots of room and very nice views from the roof top deck with multiple seating areas both on the roof and the main level. The bedroom is large and comfortable and lots of space for clothing and storage of luggage. Aldama is one of the most beautiful streets in San Miguel or anywhere and it is just a few minutes from Jardin, dozens of quality restaurants and lots of the the wonderful history of this most special city. The gas fireplace was useful this time of the year for the morning chill. Very professional staff who help us find convient parking for our rental car and kept the place clean and well cared for. Booking with Robert was straightforward. We have visited San Miguel a half dozen times and staying in Centro was great and we hope to return one day.

Heart of the town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The condo was beautifully renovated and very comfortable. The owner Robert along with his staff were fantastic. Their communication regarding arrival and departure along with any other questions were timely and accurate. The location allowed us to explore most of the downtown on foot yet still allowed for a short taxi ride to other amazing experiences in San Miguel de Allende. Cinco Flores is highly recommended.

Look no further. Cinco Flores is the perfect place to call home.

  • 5 of 5

As explained, we can confirm it is only steps to the center of San Miguel. We did not have the opportunity to meet Robert and Carol as they were out of town, but there is no question they have a great place and take very good care of their clients.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week in this charming casita and were delighted. The casita is larger than it looks in the photos and the location is perfect. We loved having a kitchen for breakfast and the space to spread out upstairs or down. Robert and Carol the owners were extremely helpful and made our visit much more of an in depth cultural experience.
