Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

LOCATION LOCATION, just 2 short blocks from the Jardin, in the historic centro part of San Miguel and flat walking area. The Artesans Market and Mercado with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and flowers are just a block away. The Biblioteca is a block away. The Biblioteca, the largest English language library in Mexico is the place for movies, concerts, books and a very good restaurant. You can even get the New York Times daily at the Biblioteca. The owner is usually located on the property and there is also a property manager. Both are available for questions and suggestions.

Casa De Las Divas has two, two bedroom, two bath casitas. Each casita is on a separate floor, one lower and one upper. They can be rented separately or together. Luxury sheets and towels are provided. Each casita is colorfully and comfortably furnished, with a nice-size kitchen. Beautiful oriental rugs are in the living area and bedrooms. The bathrooms are ensuite. The spacious living/dining area overlook the interior courtyard with its fountain, plants, and flowers. The living room has a nice gas fireplace to keep the chill away in the mornings or late evenings.

The casitas have a rooftop garden with a beautiful 360-degree view of San Miguel. The Churches of San Miguel and the mountains create a mesmerizing vista. The terrace is a perfect place to read, relax, sip a margarita or just take a siesta. The living room overlooks a patio with a fountain and a profusion of colorful flowers and plants. Often there is a turquoise hummingbird enjoying the flowers.

The casitas are part of a historical construction and contain many interesting architectural details with thick walls and archways on the interior.

Listening to the sound of the fountain will help get you in the rhythm of San Miguel. The Artesans Market and the Biblioteca are less than a five minute walk. I can arrange for babysitting services if they are needed.

The downstairs casita has a private outdoor breakfast patio. Each casita has 1100 square feet. The bedrooms in the upstairs casita have beautiful boveda ceilings.

There is a $60 fee if initial arrival to the property is after 9 pm.

Cute place and great location

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful place and right next to the centro.

Walls are a bit thin so the people above can be heard pretty loud but other than that- a really awesome rental.

Owner's Response: I wish Shelby had mentioned to me that noise was an issue I could have spoken to the people in the other casita about it. Some people are not aware they are being loud. I was unaware there was any issue.

Lovely casita convenient to all

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upper casita for 3 nights. It's beautifully appointed and had everything we needed. It was quiet - except for the 6am fireworks one morning. The property is in a wonderful location just a short walk from the Jardín. We'd love to come back.

Central, adorable, comfortable and charming casita!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in the center of town. The walk to the Jardin was easy and quick. We had all the amenities we needed in the casita, loved the rooftop and courtyard gardens and all of the artwork and finishing touches on the house. The beds were super comfortable and the house was very clean. Easy communication with Melissa; and Lorena checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Wonderful suggestions for good places to eat and things to do and see in San Miguel.

An absolutely darling town rich in history and filled with beautiful people, views, art, architecture and food! I would highly recommend staying at Casa de las Divas and will definitely book again on my next trip to San Miguel de Allende!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed in the lower casita. This is a lovely property. We were greeted with a fabulous floral arrangement in an immaculate and very appealing space complete with a fireplace, comfortable beds and sheets and great water pressure!

The owner, Melissa Hirsch, and her staff made us welcome and answered our many, many questions.

The location is perfect. It is flat and right in the midst of everything. The library, garden, theater, grocery and art market are all within a ten minute walk.

We were warned that staying in the Centro would be noisy and to bring ear plugs, this was not our experience. We slept with the windows open and while you hear the bells and fireworks,they are not bothersome.

It was an incredible experience and I will definitely return!
