In this high end community, maintenance of common areas is impeccable. All new construction has to follow a strict building code that includes the outside design in a modern colonial style; bricks, stone, wood a white stucco is required so that there is a community feel to the neighborhood.

San Gil is one of the most beautiful places to live and to spend your holidays or just a romantic weekend.

About Cristina Arroyo

27 years’ experience as a business owner, architect and rental property manager in Mexico and the U.S. Loves working with people. Fluent in English and Spanish.

My hobbies include pottery, gardening, sailing, kayaking, travel and cooking.

Cristina Arroyo purchased this house in 2002

Why Cristina Arroyo chose Mexico

I bought this house when it was not finished and abandoned. I did not have to see the interior of the house to fall in love with the location and the promising future of this property. I just returned from Greece when I started the remodeling work that became an act of love, as the house needed much more work than expected. This home has become one of my favorite places to relax and enjoy the sound of birds, the water views. Whoever walks in inevitably falls in love with this unique place, the lake is the heart of the house and the decor invites to enjoy life!

What makes this house unique

Directly on the lake, privacy; comfort, privacy and one of the best locations of San Gil; located less than 10 minutes from a major highway, making it easy to get to the most important cities in central Mexico. The home has a southern exposure, large windows and the best view you can imagine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was very impressed with the owner of the property, she immediately called us after booking to thank us and arranged everything for our stay to be comfortable and gave us instructions to get to the house and how to use all the amenities of the house. Very impressed with space and how clean it was. Top level service here guys!

average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Gorgeous lake home with fantastic second floor master suite with very large balcony!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for just under four weeks and we loved it. We walked around the lake almost every day (70 minutes total), ate outside both by the lake and on the balcony, and were really able to unwind and recharge.

With the wifi I could work every day.

Shopping for groceries in San Juan Del Rio was easy, and if we needed something small there are stores in San Gil that sell food, vegetables, cheese and pizza (they deliver).

We enjoyed eating dinner at Campo Bravo, Galindo, and Corral de la Vaca, all reasonably priced with excellent food. For breakfast we ate at the Club House in San Gil overlooking the lake.

We rented a car and driving around was easy with the MapQuest app.

We recommend this place and we will return! Thanks Cristina--your attention to detail and commitment to perfection shows!

Great house, sunsets, peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Cristina for all the help we received from her. The house was just gorgeous, lots of details, clean, everything working perfectly, much more of what we expected. The lake view is beautiful, specially the sunsets. San Gil is a great place to rest and the surrounding towns are a treat. Our friends and us were delightful with the house, no complains, just gratitude. We hope to come back soon!

Wonderful place and a very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

San Gil es un gran lugar para descansar y para recorrer localidades cercanas de gran interés turístico y culinario en el centro de México.

La casa se encuentra en excelentes condiciones y tiene una ubicación privilegiada con vista al lago. Todo, instalaciones, muebles, decoración y utensilios, se encuentra limpio y en perfectas condiciones.

Realmente recomiendo el lugar y felicito a Cristina

Love it and will go back.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the opportunity to get out of Queretaro for one night and experience a romantic getaway. The house is in a gorgeous and isolated country club called San Gil, a 20min drive from the big city “Queretaro.” We were treated promptly at arrival to this community and ended up grabbing snacks, drinks and groceries for one day at the local store, which I’m happy to say it had everything we needed. The drive into the house was scenic and soothing, something about the air there seems just magical. Upon arrival at the house we were delighted to see the place, the pictures don’t do it justice as the view from the main room is outstanding. Cleanliness didn’t disappoint either as the house had the smell of new and fresh! We only had the chance to stay for one night but we will surely come back for a longer getaway.

Coming by yourself, with your significant other or with your whole family should be fun as there are plenty of green areas and I can only imagine the lake is a playground for kids over the summer, not that it was cold at all over the winter.

Communication with the owner was great. This place is a hidden GEM and I’d recommend it to anyone visiting or wanting a getaway.

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful place and we are looking forward to our next stay.

- D. & S.

Great stay at San Gil

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at San Gil on our recent trip to Queretaro.

at first, we didn´t expected it to be so far out from the city, but this turned out to be one of the best features the house has to offer.

its location is great if you plan to visit the nearby towns, we enjoyed day trips to san juan del río, peña de bernal and tequisquiapan.

getting to this "pueblos magicos" is a short drive from San Gil.

The house is beautiful, well kept and its location overlooking the lake makes it all the better, its peaceful and quiet and really lends its self for enoying quality family time.

Patricia, the house keeper, is friendly and warm, she even cooked somo seriously delicious pozole for us!

We loved our time here and will definetly consider coming back!
