About Carole or Bill Meyer

Bill, the retired lawyer in our family, and Carole, the artist of the two, have been married for over 30 years. One of the greatest and most fun adventures of our marriage has been buying and building our much loved home in San Miguel de Allende. Though having traveled to many other parts of the world, we have always been drawn to Magical Mexico! San Miguel has given us another life, new friends and a new second language ( more or less!!!) Over the last 20 years, we have spent approximately 4 years total time living in San Miguel. Be warned.....upon our first visit of 10 days, we returned home and promptly started to dream and scheme on how we could get back to this wonderful little town in the mountains. Let it be said, like may before us, we fell (hard) under the spell of San Miguel de Allende! Bill and Carole

Carole or Bill Meyer purchased this villa in 1995

Why Carole or Bill Meyer chose San Miguel de Allende

We fell so in love with the town and with our location......love the San Juan de Dios Church and the beautiful gardens around it! The weather, people, food and cultural activities were all there for us to enjoy. Building and decorating out home was great fun and a wonderful learning experience.

What makes this villa unique

Oh my God.....let me list the ways! Well, TIME.... Time to spend with old friends, leisurely lunches, enjoying the perfect weather, taking some classes, the fresh food, the new friends, both Mexican, American, Canadian, Italian, etc, etc!! We love our home....it has been a work in progress that took several years to complete. (This means we did spend many months actually working our tails off!) But now.....it is massages, dips in the pool, manicures, pedicures, FABULOUS food prepared by Terri ....AND.....I never clean, change a bed, wash a dish.......you get the idea.....makes it hard to come back home to Portland!!! Carole

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Bill and Carole,



I’ve been wanting to email you both since we arrived 2 days ago, but my head has been spun in so many different directions, I’m only now finding the time!



I wanted to tell you both just how magnificent your home in San Miguel de Allende is, and just how much we all appreciate every single detail that you’ve thought of. It’s such a pleasure to spend our time in your home, and we truly love it as our own…so much so that we rarely get out the door until well after noon!



Teresa and Rosa are wonderful as well, and their attention to detail, as well as our wishes, is above and beyond.



The city itself is pure magic, and we’re exploring more every day!



You two have really done it right, and I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are to be able to stay in your marvelous home away from home!



All the best,
Dec 2014

fantastic home, fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

My five girlfriends and I enjoyed a wonderful week in Casa Carole to celebrate our big Birthdays! It is a beautiful home that truly brings to life the spirit of Mexico. Teresa and Rosa (our maids) were attentive and helpful. We also very much enjoyed San Miguel and would encourage all to have Angelica Tours assist with in home massages, facials, pedicures as well as day outings and other activities. it was an amazing stay.

Beautiful home, lovely city

  • 5 of 5

Bill,

Just wanted you to know that we spent a remarkable week at Casa Carole. My wife and I were so taken with la Casa and la Casita, and so impressed by the care, the attention to detail, and the artistic touches that you and Carole have lavished on your homes.

Whilst San Miguel lived up to its reputation, Casa Carole exceeded any expectations we may have had prior to experiencing it. It's a lovely place. And Teresa and Rosa were excellent 'hosts'! By the time we left they felt like family.

Thank you for sharing Casa Carole and La Casita. One day we hope to return, primero Dios....

Family Feeling

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a family get together to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. There were 8 of us and we were amazed upon entering this spectacular home. We immediately felt right at home, it was elegant, warm and relaxing. What made it even better was the friendly and caring staff. The housekeepers Rosa and Teresa became part of our extended family. They kept the home clean and neat. We requested they prepare breakfast for a few days plus a dinner. Their cooking could rival a meal from a Michelin Star chef. The most difficult time we had at this perfect home was saying goodbye to Rosa and Teresa. We congratulate Bill and Carole Meyer for having established this diamond of a home in a city that is known for its art and beauty.

Unique House in a Special Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Carole - the house surpassed even the marvellous photos we had seen! It is a beautifully restored and furnished property with Carole's wonderful art gracing many of the walls. Rose and Teresa are there to help with most things - and to cook a wonderful breakfast or two. The location is great - about 10 mins stroll from El Jardin, the centre of town. A perfect introduction to a unique town!

You will feel as if you had entered paradise...

  • 5 of 5

This home completely exceeded our expectations. I am originally from Mexico City and I have traveled to a lot of places but this home is by far one of the most beautiful ones. You truly feel as if you were living at an art gallery. The decorations are fantastic, the location is amazing and the home is beautiful. Don't hesitate to book this home. You will not be disappointed.

Amazing Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a perfect family vacation to San Miguel! We were there last year and decided to return with extended family for a New Year's Eve getaway. Casa Carole abolsutely lives up to and exceeds the reviews on VRBO. It's absolutely beautiful - the architecture, the furnishings, the art and including all of the little details you would hope for - nice sheets, well equipped kitchen, etc. Despite that we were a party of ten, there are an abundance of places to find solitude - multiple terraces (the one off of the master bedroom is especially delightful!) and places to relax and unwind. We rented both the main house and the casita together which worked perfectly given the size of our family. On its own, the casita is also beautiful! One bedroom of the casita is just a few steps down from the pool (the main floor of the house) which provided fairly easy access for anyone challenged by stairs. We traveled with our 9 year old son who loved the pool along with everyone else! And the outdoor barbeque was perfect too. Teresa and Rosa were immensely helpful and we also enjoyed the local market which is just a few blocks away from the house (opposite of town). The local market has fantastic produce and much better than what you will find at MEGA. The house is located on a lovely, quiet street within easy walking distance of the main square. Last year we stayed at the Rosewood Hotel and I can tell you that you will not be disappointed in Casa Carole! It's simply beautiful - absolutely on par and surpasses a 5 star hotel experience.

Bill and Carole were incredibly helpful in answering questions and recommeding local attractions and restaurants. (Thank you for letting us enjoy your gorgeous home - we look forward to coming back!)
