About Judith Jenya and Mark Johaningsmeir

We are retired couple who met and married here in Mexico. Judith is an artist, photographer and poet. Mark is a writer.

We love our life here in San Miguel. Unlike many cities that attract tourists, we think that San Miguel is an even better place to live than visit - and people do enjoy their visits! We enjoy the rich cultural life of art exhibits, concerts, plays, discussion groups, writing groups. There are festivals happening throughout the year: Poetry workshop, San Miguel Writers Conference, Chamber Music Festival, Jazz and Blues Festival, film festival, a live Opera, the final of Mexico's finest young opera singers, Cuban music, many culinary special events and more.

Why Judith Jenya and Mark Johaningsmeir chose San Miguel de Allende

We built this home a block away from our previous home of 8 years. We like the neighborhood - its people and location! We are close enough to the city center to engage fully in the vibrant social and cultural scene there. And we are far enough away from the center so we can enjoy a quiet night of rest without the noise of traffic and celebrations.

Our neighbors are about an equal mix of Mexicanos and ex-pats.

What makes this apartment unique

We built this house for simplicity and comfort. The Casita is a guest suite for our family and friends who come to visit. We also make it available to guests from around the world - like you!

The Casita is a fully separate, self-contained suite on the second level of our home. In addition to creating a lush garden on the ground level, we are adding shrubs and small trees to the Casita's patio. The patio has a large umbrella and table and chairs.

Wonderful place and great hosts with the mostest.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place on the 2nd floor with a private terrace overlooking SMA and the countryside around it. ...Even air balloons floating overheard a couple of AM's. thanks for arranging that. Very comfortable bed. Great kitchenette but no time to use it. Public bus at the end of the street but walking to El Centro doable. They gave me suggestions of where to eat etc.

Mark and Judith very amiable and so helpful. They went out of their way to make my visit enjoyable.

Since I was there to investigate living in SMA they invited me to accompany them on a couple of their personal short trips around SMA, and meeting their friends. I really appreciated that. And, they graciously told me about their experiences of living in SMA.

I also appreciate their very timely return of my security deposit.
