About the property

4 Luxuriously appointed bedroom suites each with private baths

Welcome to Casa Florida, a historic 250 year-old rescued treasure, remodeled in 2007/2008 into an exquisite home. This charming, airy, home, right in the center of the World Heritage site of San Miguel de Allende, will delight you with it's open central courtyard design, full of original artworks from local artists and sculpture.

Situated a short, flat, 2 minute walk, from the main square (Jardin), & the grand Parroquia Church. Just 2 doors away you will find the Angela Peralta Opera House & the Bellas Artes, a showcase for art exhibits and concerts. The Biblioteca, one of the largest English-language libraries in Latin America, with its own theater is just 1.5 block away.

An easy ten-minute walk to the Instituto Allende, which offers classes in Spanish, painting, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, batik, weaving, art history and more. It is an ideal location for easy, flat, walking to dozens of restaurants, theater, concerts, festivals or other cultural events. So close to the entire central area of town, Casa Florida is truly at the heart of it all, whilst still being very safe and secure.

Casa Florida is exquisitely furnished, with bespoke linens & custom designed pieces throughout. Supremely comfortable beds, and lovely designer bathrooms to linger in. The living areas are beautifully appointed and are a lovely retreat at the end of a busy day. Continental breakfast is offered daily and is included in the price of your stay.

Rental includes unlimited free phone calls to US, Canada. Also included is high-speed wireless internet, utilities, local phone, cable TV with English-language stations, Apple TV, washer/dryer, hairdryers in each bathroom and daily maid service. Private driver service and caterer available on request for a fee.

Your beautiful rooftop, private terrace has stunning views of the cupolas and spires of San Miguel. Furnished with table, umbrella, chairs, and lounges, & with a refrigerator & sink, you can breakfast on the roof, or sip cocktails while often viewing a dazzling display of fireworks.

With good weather all year long, San Miguel is one of the 10 most visited cities in the world. Colonial architecture has been greatly protected as a national treasure in this walking city! Excellent restaurants abound, and with copious art galleries, English theater, music venues, dance, hiking, biking, active Audubon Society, golf, tennis, and glorious bougainvillea, it is sometimes said we are the 'Santa Fe of Mexico with San Diego weather'!

Come, enjoy, and where better to do it all, than from your San Miguel home, the lovely Casa Florida!

About Steven

I visited San Miguel de Allende in 2004 and fell in love. I bought the ruin of Casa Florida & renovated it from 2006 until the end of 2008 into what it is today. I am a native Floridian from Tampa, FL where I have lived for 58 years and raised two daughters. I taught for 38 years & also had my own company, renovating historic buildings. I find living in San Miguel most of the year to be the retirement I had always hoped for. I never dared to dream the dreams that are as good as the life we are blessed enough to have here in San Miguel!

Steven purchased this house in 2004

Location the best! House was wonderful, especially the terrace - great for reading and relaxing. Patty took such good care of us that we wanted to take her home. Although she didn't speak English that didn't stop her from understanding what we wanted. Steven is a dream come true! His attention to detail even included getting our boarding passes. Thanks to him our experience in San Miguel was wonderful and we would definitely rent this house again and again and again!

Very comfortable villa right off the Centro square

  • 4 of 5

For price, it rates 5 stars. There are newer and fancier places but could not be any more enjoyable. Highly recommend manager and his gang. And take the road trip to Delores Hidalgo with manager's recommended transportation specialist!

Great location, beautiful rooftop patio.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a great 200 year old classic. The owner was super nice to work with and we came to meet us the last day. Breakfast is provided, but after the first day, our group really wanted to get in there and make our own, which was fun, and fine with the cook/housekeeper.

Walking distance to literally everything. Tio Lucas is steps away, and many others.

The only negative has nothing to do with the house or the owner. I just wouldn't recommend going in January. It was too cool to enjoy the beautiful rooftop patio, and the house was really chilly, even with the fireplaces going.

This house is in my top 2 and we've stayed in many rentals in San Miguel.

Beautiful home in the center of town.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa Florida and would stay there again. The home is beautiful and the breakfast that was cooked to order everyday was delicious. Steve was very helpful when we needed to organize a car or answer any questions about the city.
