Chorro House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 4 1/2 baths in a beautiful, park-like setting with many mature trees

The Treehouse is an incredible three-story home (with its own 4-person Otis elevator!!) located in an exclusive, gated community of only 6 grand residences. Set in the most sought after part of San Miguel, the homes in this private enclave were all designed and built by the famous Hawaiian architect, Norman Lacayo. His vision was to create a seamless juxtaposition of modern angles with the warmth and charm of old, colonial Mexico and the tranquility of nature. Because 2 large, mature trees on the building site were saved and incorporated into the walls of this home when it was designed, locals often refer to it as 'The Treehouse'.

Hallmarks of this elegant home are the soothing shades of charcoal, cafe, cream, gold, deep red and violet. The clean lines, contemporary furnishings and soothing decorative style are a refreshing change from the sometimes overwhelming bright Mexican colors and tiles!

Besides its beauty, the Treehouse also enjoys the most prestigious locale available in San Miguel; one block south on the beautiful tree-lined street, Cañadita de Los Aguacates. It is situated right next to the historic Sierra Nevada Hotel and very close to the luxurious Rosewood and Matilda boutique hotels. Only 1 short block away is the Parque Juarez (our beautiful, tree and plant-filled park), where you'll find a popular basketball court, morning exercise classes (yoga/zumba/tai chi), a myriad of walkers/runners all hours of the day, a modern playground for the kids, various ice cream and snack vendors, local marching bands practicing for their upcoming parade, and possibly even young men honing their bullfighting skills - without the bulls of course! Only 4.5 blocks away, along the charming street Calle Recreo, is the Jardin Principal (the main square in the historic center), where you'll find daily/nightly music and art events and various local food vendor carts.

When staying at the Treehouse, you'll enjoy being within an easy walk to almost everything. Yet, when you are ready to return, you'll enter a peaceful, private and safe abode. Guests frequently comment on the utter tranquility one feels while relaxing in this quiet, extremely comfortable and safe home. Usually, the loudest thing you'll hear is the mourning doves singing outside your windows!

When you first enter our home from the front (ground floor), immediately on your right, you'll find our large, guest bedroom with king-sized bed, private bath, wooden desk and leather desk chair - if you must work while on vacation! Its wall of windows look out onto our cobble-stoned entrance area (with parking for 1 car) that's shaded by large, mature trees. Take our elevator, or the stairs, and ascend to the first floor where you will find the other 3 bedrooms. These bedrooms are comprised of 2 master suites, each with a king bed and private bath and an additional small, but cozy bedroom next to the guest suite that's perfect for children, teens or a nanny, as it has its own private bath and a twin daybed with an additional twin pull-out trundle bed beneath. On the second floor (top floor), with views across the park and church spires of San Miguel, you'll find a very well-stocked kitchen, wet bar, living room, dining area for 8 and a glorious, outdoor entertainment area. Another more intimate patio is just off the dining room and kitchen; a quiet, restful spot where you can take your morning coffee while listening to the soothing sound of water flowing in our pretty, cantera-stone fountain.

To make your stay even more sumptuous, all beds have 3-inch thick memory foam toppers, luxurious, Egyptian cotton sheets (400 and 600 thread-count) and super-soft, micro-plush blankets. To keep you warm during those chilly times of year, we also have micro-plush electric blankets and warm duvets.

Our state-of-the-art, whole-house water purification/treatment system (with ultraviolet (UV) light sanitizer, 3 different levels of filtration and water softener) allows our guests to safely drink water from any tap in our home. Our new, stainless steel refrigerator uses this same purified and filtered water to provide cold water in the door and ice in the freezer.

All utilities and housekeeping/gardener service 3 times/week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) is included in the rental prices. If needed, additional housekeeping, gardening and/or a private cook can be made available for an additional fee.

About Owner

Over the years we've had the opportunity to travel to many incredible places in the world, and have been exposed to a myriad of amazing cultures, languages & people. These international experiences had a huge impact on us, shaping our world view in a big way. So much so, that we decided to set about crafting a part-time ex-pat life for ourselves in 2 of our favorite countries - Mexico & France - and we are thrilled with the unconventional life we've chosen!

We currently own homes in the US, Mexico and France & when we aren't able to use them, we offer them to other adventurous people like you!

Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner chose San Miguel de Allende

We first saw San Miguel almost 20 years ago & swore that somehow...someday...we would find a way to live here! We began our search for a home here 8 years ago via the internet. Then, 6 years ago, we took the plunge & starting living in San Miguel part of the year, still looking for our dream home, while renting other people's lovely homes in the meantime.

We found that most homes in San Miguel don't offer a lot of privacy and outdoor space because they are essentially townhouses (sharing 3 of their walls with other homes). We also found many homes are often are quite dark and cave-like inside. So, when we saw the Treehouse, (located right next to Parque Juarez), and we saw the extensive, lushly landscaped gardens with large mature trees and how incredibly light-filled, spacious and private this property felt both inside and out, we knew we'd finally found our home!

beautiful private property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the treehouse. The location was excellent for us, right next to the parque. Lulu and Eduardo kept the property clean and were great hosts. The layout is very interesting, more like a compound than a traditional house, with essentially separate structures and lots of space. We also appreciated the water filtration, we never had any issues, even our little kids could drink it. There was some construction going on next door, so it was quite noisy during the day, so one should ask whether that is still going on if that is an issue for you.

Owner's Response: We're so very sorry about the noise you experienced during your stay, and we appreciate you letting us know about this. We feel terrible that this happened and are so glad it did not ruin your stay. We have been assured that all work next door will be done by September 2, 2016. Again, we sincerely apologize, and hope that you will consider returning to our home again in the future, so you can enjoy its normally peaceful and very tranquil environment.

Great place to stay in San Miguel!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was great! Of special note, the beds and linens were excellent. We felt safe there, inside their private locked and gated compound. The fireplace in the living room was very much appreciated as the weather was a bit cool. The outdoor areas were very private and we spent very peaceful afternoons there. It's large enough that everyone in our group felt they had their own privacy and space. Cindi is very good about responding to questions and gave us a referral for a great airport shuttle. Lulu, the maid, was very accommodating, pleasant, and trustworthy.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house- amazing people- amazing city! The house is immaculate with linens that top the best hotels anywhere. The entire process was great- everyone we were involved with always went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we need. You have to make sure Lulu cooks up some food for you- amazing!!!

Extraordinary Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse is truly extraordinary. From the moment we entered the gates of this secure, private compound (containing 6 incredible homes), we knew we were someplace special. This compound, as well as all the homes in it, has obviously been thoughtfully and carefully planned - resulting in the Treehouse being perfectly located. Its specific orientation allows for lots of soft, natural light inside every room (through the numerous, large windows), but, at the same time, we enjoyed a level of privacy we haven't found in most San Miguel houses. There are wonderful outdoor spaces with sweeping views of the city and countryside, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time spent outside among the numerous plants and large trees. This home is artfully decorated, and provides superior comforts along with many conveniences. The many photos and descriptions provided, gave us a good idea of all that the property had to offer and what to expect during our stay. However, they didn't fully convey the peacefulness and uniqueness of this home. The Treehouse is truly a sanctuary to relish. It was a perfect base for us to explore the beautiful city of San Miguel and beyond (makes sure you visit the city of Guanajuato!). Cindi, the owner, was gracious, and sincerely interested in us enjoying our stay in her home. She was very responsive and a delight to interact with.

Beautiful Home in the Heart of the City

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter was recently married in San Miguel and our family of 8 stayed here for a week. The home is beautiful and well cared for. It is situated within walking distance to Centro and many other sites. Each bedroom is self contained with it's own bathroom and heat. The beds are comfortable and cozy in the coolness of the night. There is an elevator in the home which would be helpful for those who cannot manage the many stairs. We like to cook and found the kitchen to be well equipped although there is no kettle (we are tea drinkers) or dishwasher. The housekeeper Lulu comes to clean on Mon Wed & Fri. The gardener, Eduardo tends the garden and also came by the sweep the stairs and patio after several storms while we were there. There was some noise late into the night on the weekend and we were grateful for the white noise machine that was supplied in two of the bedrooms. Overall a perfect home for a family wedding!

Wonderful House in SMA

  • 5 of 5

The Tree House was in a great location. A ten minute level walk to Centro (many houses are uphill from Centro). It was much quieter than another house that I rented in SMA in the past. The kitchen had all the items we needed but we enjoyed eating out for most of our meals as many restaurants are just a short walk from the house. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the matresses, sheets, towels and amenities all top notch. I stayed there with 3 girlfriends, we each had our own room and could hang out together on the 3rd floor where there is a lovely living room with a fireplace, cozy blankets and sofas or out on the patio with a view of the city. The staff, Lulu and Eduardo were helpful and polite. Lulu did some laundry for us and also made us fresh salsa, guacamole and home made tortilla chips. The owner was very responsive and helpful with email as was the local house manager, Andrea. Overall, an excellent choice for staying in SMA and I would stay in this house again.
