As beautiful as pictures

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this beautiful home. First time in San Miguel and Kim was available to make us feel comfortable and provided a wealth of useful information about best restaurants, sights to see, and much more. Claudia kept the home extremely clean and it was very well maintained. Would highly recommend to anyone able to spend some time in this beautiful city.

The house was beautiful and the beds very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The house was as pretty as the pictures, the beds were so comfortable , it was just a shock that I thought we had rented the whole house and it was like sharing a house with the owners sister. She was very sweet and lovely about my little Chihuahuas but it made it awkward to have someone else in the house. I was planning on having a dinner with friends but I didn't feel I really could.

Had I known the conditions I probably would have rented the house but it would have been nice to know.

Owner's Response: In response to this review. The website clearly stated that this was our residence and that someone would be here during this guests stay. We never wanted to surprise or disappoint any guest but unfortunately we have learned that most people do not read past the lovely photos for the specifics. Our intention was to be fully transparent regarding this fact. We have also had some wonderful experiences and met great people who rented with this knowledge. POLICY CHANGE We have changed our rental policy and we are NOT in residence during full house rentals, which is also reflected in the website so guests can know that they will be ALONE. However, the owners quarters in back are NEVER rented and remain locked at all times.There are no photos of the owners quarters and it is not advertised as part of the rental. I hope this information answers any questions or concerns future guests may have regarding our rental policy. Again, there will be NO ONE living here during whole house rentals. Thank you for your attention and enjoy!

Wonderful hosts, wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

The host and hostess of this grand hacienda were by far the most accommodating and enjoyable couple I have yet experienced in my many visits to San Miguel. I have to dispel any question of their integrity that was brought up by another review. The owners graciously accepted a last minute booking as the house I had been staying in had no water due to water line work on the street ... So I was fortunate to stay in one of the many beautiful bedrooms, and baths, and experience the convenient and unique neighborhood near the center of San Miguel. I certainly look forward to future stays in this home! I have found my spot in San Miguel!

Owner's Response: You are always welcome in our home. We would like every guest to have the experience you had and are so glad you enjoyed our hacienda as much as we do. San Miguel is a wonderful, exciting city and Casa del Silbador is a magical place to experience it from! Best regards, Annika and Michael

About Kim MacQuarrie

We are a couple who have owned property here in San Miguel since 2005. We know the town well and are excited to share it with our friends!

Kim MacQuarrie purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim MacQuarrie chose Colonia San Antonio

This property blew us away when we first saw it! It had everything we wanted and things we couldn't imagine we would get. There were many surprises as we walked through the house for the first time. Once we had seen it we looked at each other and both knew that this was the place for us!

What makes this house unique

Yes, it's an amazing location. Yes, it has more than enough room. Yes, we feel completely safe staying in this beautiful home. But what we never cease to notice are the details put into the property. For starters, what other house in town has a Bedouin tent inside that you can stay in?!? We've never seen one before but we thought it was so great that we kept it. Other little things like the beveled windows and the mature garden. This hacienda/home has obviously been taken care of by someone very passionate about their surroundings. We then added our personal touches such as our own original artwork and a grand piano which gets use by many of our guests.

Those are just a few things we love about this home. Then there are the fireplaces in every room, and the fountain in the middle of the garden. Everyone seems to find their own favorite piece of this house, and we know you will too!
