One important aspect that makes this casita more unique is it gives you a blend of both centro and a more spacious, beautiful environment. You can easily get to centro but return to a peaceful home with gardens, hummingbirds and amazing views. In addition, i love San Miguel which was voted #1 tourist destination in the world by Conde Nast I want you to enjoy San Miguel too. I provide information on tours with locals that I personally know (eg horseback and atv riding, rock climbing, day tours to Guanajuato etc). When i am going kayaking, to the hot springs, the Mercado or a Mexican fiesta i will invite you to join me and/or provide transportation. You will have the opportunity to explore on your own but see more of San Miguel via the eyes of someone who lives here. Please, be aware this is Mexico and there are fireworks, barking dogs at night etc. If sensitive to noise you may want to bring ear protection etc. for sounder slumbers.
Hola! I am Canadian but lived in Seattle, WA for many years and now reside in beautiful San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Previously worked at the Univ of Washington Harborview Medical Center as a nurse practitioner. I bought a casa in San Miguel in March 2009 and l completed the casita, third floor terraza and garden in late 2012. I love to be active in terms of hiking, kayaking and swimming. I am open and artistic as evidenced when you meet me or walk in my front door. Travel and photography are two of my greatest passions.
Joey Merrifield purchased this apartment in 2009
San Miguel de Allende is a beautiful Unesco World Heritage city. Voted #1 tourist destination in the world by Conde Nast, NYC. There are festivals and fiestas Home to environmentalists, bird watchers and artists
I love going to centro yet appreciate coming home to a more peaceful environment with a luscious garden filled with bouganvilla, cactus flowers, herbs and an amazing views of the mountains .
Warm, cosy, private and very comfortable. We prefer to stay away from the center of town. We walked into town, but it's also easy to use taxis. Once we learned public transportation, we felt like locals. Wonderfully decorated separate apartment with all amenities. Great movie collection, music, lovely garden with a view, a bottle of wine and the most comfortable bed I've slept on in Mexico. Joey was a great host , giving advice and even checking in regularly to offer us rides into town. Bring earplugs if you have trouble sleeping with barking dogs, but this is Mexico. I prefer them to bars and street noise. Highly recommended for a couple who wants to imagine living in San Miguel.
Loved our stay in Joey's casita. The place was clean and organized. We had everything we needed to make it feel like home. The shower was powerful and hot; amazing for mexico. The listing description was very accurate so we knew what to expect. The views from the top deck were awesome!
Even though this property was not in the centre of town, there was no problem getting around. We did walk a fair bit, and the buses were cheap and always entertaining!
Joey was a great host. Her knowledge of San Miguel de Allende and surrounding areas proved very helpful, and we sometimes hitched a ride into town with her. Would definitely recommend her and her charming oasis.
We really enjoyed our stay. Joey our host was extremely helpful in letting us know about events and things to do and the Casita was very attractive and well equipped. We especially appreciated the availability of a washer and dryer. The garden was delightful and fascinating with the various species of birds. Sitting on the rooftop patio and watching the sunset was a daily ritual.
A+++++ accommodations. We had a wonderful time in San Miguel, and Joey's casita helped make our stay amazing. Wonderful city, wonderful rental property. Within walking distance of city center, fabulous views of the city, very clean, very comfortable, great hot shower. Joey is just wonderful. She's sweet and attentive and had great recommendations. We loved our stay in San Miguel, and would absolutely return and stay in Joey's sweet casita again.
Everything you could possibly need while visiting San Miguel — a comfy bed, a kitchen you can cook in, a terrace with a view, and quite possibly the BEST shower in Mexico!! Seriously, hot water and water pressure that rival showers back home. Joey is an extremely helpful host — if there is anything you need, she probably already has it covered. She has her thumb on the pulse of the city and will share all her knowledge with you, very sweet.
We've had a great stay at Joey's lovely casita. Everything was exactly as - or better than -advertised. We especially appreciated the comfortable bed and high quality linens and towels. Joey puts a lot of effort into keep the place spotless and homey, and is very responsive to any issues that come up. We enjoyed the walk to town and used the shortcuts through the vacant plots along the way for a slightly shorter walk.
It's Joey herself, however, who really adds value. She is a great resource, especially for us because we are thinking of relocating here. She was always willing to introduce us, direct us, advise us, connect us - on medical questions, restaurant recommendations, entertainment, the rental market, transportation, and all the random questions that came up for us. Her 'welcome pack' was very thorough and up to date. Thank you Joey!
