About Paula Doherty
I have worked in Hollywood designing DVD and BD special packaging for years. Some of the films I worked on include: Star Wars, Star Trek, Batman, Harry Potter and the Hobbit to name a few. I have been a designer all my life and my husband and I built this home as a living art project. Our goal was to make it elegant yet comfortable. We hope you enjoy our Treasure House.
Paula Doherty purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Paula Doherty chose Zona Centro
We saw the lot and fell in love with the view, air quality and array of birds. There is always a gentle breeze so it never gets too hot in the summer or too cold in the winter.
What makes this Villa unique
Magnificent views, Flowers and birds everywhere. An eagle actually came and sat beside me when I was on my outdoir sala. Incredible, large pool with lion head fountains. Shamans, art, antiques and good vibes. Our staff Is full of love and generosity.

Truly a treasure
Wow!! What a gorgeous property. Words cannot explain how beautiful this place is. It is an elegant and artistic reflection of Mexico, and the view from the rooftop is truly breathtaking. We enjoyed happy hour sunsets on the roof, laying by the beautiful pool, and all the great outdoor sitting spots that are available on each floor. The view from the master bedroom is also spectacular....what a treat to go to sleep and wake up to the town of San Miguel framed in your bedroom window. This property truly is a gem, and no review would be complete without mentioning another treasure that comes with this property, the amazing Elvia, who makes your stay so special. She is a wonderful cook and a beautiful presence. All the meals she prepared for us each day were truly the best of Mexican cuisine. Thank you for providing a wonderful spot to host our extended family.
Thank you for your lovely words about our home and Elvia. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time in San Miguel. Please come again.
Beautiful home in San Miguel
Family of four with 2 adult daughters stayed here. Beautiful home with amazing sitting, relaxing areas. Once we learned how to call for a taxi in Spanish, all was perfect. And the cost for taking taxis was so reasonable. The owners met us at the home with a pitcher of margaritas and guacamole. Such a great welcome after a long day of traveling. The pool was so nice in the mid day heat. Elvia was fantastic with taking care of us. Found out quickly that her cooking was better than any restaurant we ate at in town. She even shared her recipe for the sauce for her chilaquiles which we try to make at home. Overall, a great place to stay. Peaceful, relaxing and we already miss being there. I cannot say enough about this beautiful home.
Amazing house - relaxing and beautiful ambiance
Great experience from the get-go! The owner, Paula, was so helpful, answering question before and during our trip. The house was amazing - the decor and artwork is fabulous. There are great outdoor spaces for relaxing and enjoying the incredible views. Juan, the gardener, keeps the grounds lovely.
San Miguel de Allende is all that we heard it was. The town is so full of energy, while being extremely relaxing. The people are lovely and the food outstanding. The walking from the house is a challenge with the stone roads and uneven surfaces, and the hill to the house is definitely a feat. Saying that, taxis are very available and Paula provides great transportation contacts.
The best part of the week is the cook/house cleaner, Elvia. Her cooking is amazing and she is so pleasant and thorough. She made our stay wonderful.
Thank you so much for your positive review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed our home and appreciated our wonderful staff. Please come
visit us again.
If you are looking for a very special and rare getaway this is your place. The artwork, decor and views are spectacular along with the great gardens and pool. Then to add to it you have Eliva who is a terrific and kind cook each day and Juan taking care of grounds so you are spoiled. Paula also provides all the info you need to enjoy your stay and makes it so very easy. The walk uphill is serious exercise however the view from top deck makes it worth it each night as the sun sets or you can easily grab a cab for a few dollars or uber. Indulge and stay here for an ultimate vacation.

Paradise with a view.
Charming villa with exquisite antique interior, and dynamite views, perched atop our favorite San Miguel colonial, Ojo de Agua. The chef was unbelievably gourmet.
Stayed here for 10 days with our four older children. It was perfection. Comfortable and beautiful. The decorating and space could not have been better, very special. We hope to stay again.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review. Please come again!
