LOCATION, location, location. This location can't be beat! We are in "el centro." It is a short 5-6 minute level walk to the "jardin," the absolute middle of town.
We have two very beautiful private suites (actually they are studio apartments) that overlook a flower-filled garden. Both suites have incredible bathrooms made of Mexican tile.
Suite #1 has a King bed, or it can be changed to accommodate 2 twin
beds. This suite has a small fridge, a microwave and 2 burners for
light cooking. Electric coffee pot. Purified water in the pipes! Luxurious bathroom with blue and white Mexican tiles.
Wirelss internet. Mexican cable TV. DVD with large collection of DVDs. Spacious and filled with light. Two full walls of glass windows overlook a flower-filled garden. People describe the garden as "Giverny comes to Mexico."
In the vacation rentals site that you are now on, there is no option for "suite." Thus I choose "apartment." The two suites could be used as apartments but a better description is "suite."
Suite #2 has a Queen bed. Small kitchenette area with a microwave, bar-size fridge, two burners, electric coffee maker, purified water. Wireless internet. Small TV with Mexican cable and a DVD player with a large library of DVDs.
Suite #2 also overlooks the flower-filed garden. Lovely bathroom with spacious shower of green and white Mexican tiles.
High quality linens and down comforters.
Both Suite #1 and Suite #2 have a small sofa and a comfortable chair as well as a small dining table for light meals and sipping coffee. Excellent
reading lamps by bed. Both suites have their own outdoor patios for sipping morning coffee or a glass of wine at sunset. Comfortable lounge chairs for outdoor reading and relaxing.
Location! We are a 20 second walk to the main mercado where you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables and flowers. And at 8:30 in the morning, freshly baked bread.
A minute away is the beginning of the artisans market where Mexicans sell their jewelry, crafts, native clothes, etc.
We are within an 8 minute walk to 90% of the restaurants that one would frequent.

About david cross
My husband and I visited San Miguel de Allende for ten days, went back to our home on the U.S. east coast, and couldn't get San Miguel out of our minds. We've now been here for 18 years. So we know the town well and can help you, should you desire, design your time here. We are serious about food...so we have a long, detailed list with our subjective opinions. And we can help you choose cooking classes, horseback excursions, night life activities, massages, spas, hotsprings, etc
david cross purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why david cross chose Zona Centro
Our suites overlook a beautiful garden. You have lots of light and privacy. We are a FLAT walk to most places that you will visit. The suites are private with outdoor seating. We live on the second and third floor. You enter our compound and walk through the entrance way to the garden in the back of the property. Should you want any help, we are close and can aid you. BUT, we leave guests all the privacy they desire.

Beautiful, peaceful and Convenient!!
Being a first time at VRBO, I felt David was very accommodating and helpful with information. We had a great time as this house was very relaxing and peaceful with a lot of local character to it. Also, we were very close to most locations and especially the Mercado that was just a stone throw away.
Lovely, comfortable, safe, quiet, near to Jardin and Centro
My husband and I stayed in Suite #1 for five nights in March, 2018. As soon as our host, owner David Cross, opened the main door for us, we knew we would be happy here. Our suite was just a few steps into the flower-filled courtyard. Beautiful. Everything worked – refrig., shower, hot water, tap water to drink, all of it was in perfect working order. It felt very private, too, and safe. And the decorating! So many wonderful touches. I echo other reviews in that it is a short walk to Ramirez Market and just a bit farther to the Jardin, the center of town. Even though just a few blocks to Centro, it was quiet (well, except for the church bells which can be heard everywhere). David was fabulous, helpful if needed, and friendly. We hope to return for a longer stay in 2019.
These guys are great interesting and fun. I recommend them to any host band I hope they come back next year.
Love, love, love this place
Wonderful to wake and have coffee outside in the private garden listening to the birds.
Very peaceful and quiet even tho close to the centre
David is a wonderful host. Very knowledgeable about SMA
and has lots of suggestions of what to see and do
A taste of paradise
The instant you enter the House of Flowers you know you have found your way to an extraordinary place. Everywhere you look there is art, color, texture, light and, of course, flowers. The suites offer a sense of living in the midst of a garden by way of their large arching windows that open to a central courtyard filled with cascading bougainvillea, fruit laden trees and busy hummingbirds. On a more practical note, the location is ideal, just steps away from the market and an easy stroll to the Jardin or central square of the city. If you’ve traveled in Latin America before, you’ll also be pleased with the purified water available throughout the suites, the abundant hot water and plumbing that works!
Another feature of the experience at the House of Flowers, to rival its beauty, is the generous hospitality offered by David, the owner of the property. Whether you’re in need of a general orientation to the city or on the hunt for the perfect croissant or cup of coffee, he’s there to assist. Though I’ve been to San Miguel many times before, I was delighted to be introduced to even more wonders of Mexico and this fascinating city. I will return. May it be soon.
It's easy to be a good host when you have guests like this. After the first day it was like we were old friends. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Perfect Location and Host
We spent 10 days in House of Flowers and greatly enjoyed the visit. It is located within a two minute walk of the Mercado but is extremely private and quiet. The garden with a central fountain is beautiful and a great venue to recharge and/or read a book. David was a perfect host, not intrusive but always available for advice and suggestions. San Miguel is an interesting city with great restaurants and friendly residents.
Perfect San Miguel Stay
I have been to San Miguel many times, lived here for a short time and this was the best location by far. David was extremely nice, the apt was perfectly decorated and plenty spacious. My wife and I had our newborn with us and layout suited us great. It is a studio space with everything you need. Also a beautiful courtyard to sit in private and enjoy. The location is great, 8 min walk to Jardin, 5min walk to San Francisco. And the cafe across the street tops it off. We had to cut our trip short a day, due to our baby and without even requesting David refunded us the last night. We will stay here again next time for sure, until then enjoy it! Thank you David!
It is so nice to have sweet people stay at your house . These two and the baby couldn't have been nicer. They have been married here in San Miguel and return for visit . I hope to see them again soon .
San Miguel offers an incredible array of activities. Fabulous shopping, incredible restaurants, nightlife, cafes, art galleries, hot springs, horseback riding, hot air balloon rides. Incredible hiking trails with vistas that are to die for!!! These trails begin 10 minutes from the property. The most popular thing to do, however, in San Miguel, is to sit in the jardin-the main square- and people watch.
