About Lynn Carlton

I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career at 24, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with architects and interior designers and watching as the more artistic elements of construction fell into place. After 13 years in real estate, I built two homes, vacation rentals on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked during that process of transforming the cabin into a unique work of art; I knew I had found my passion.

Through the next several years, I transformed some 30 rather decrepit homes into fresh, beautiful residences, working tirelessly at the rate of two or three a year. Then I decided to turn my creative attention to designing and constructing very special vacation accommodations. I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there in 2005.

I enjoy being able to see the possibilities in a wreck of a dwelling. When I first set eyes on a place in need of a make-over, I see what it could be. I can envision how the finished place will look...and that vision guides me.

I work an average of six to eight months on each project, directing a local architect and construction team, supervising every step along the way to make certain my vision is embodied in bricks and mortar, paint and plaster.

I'm always on the hunt for that specific hand-selected piece that blends with everything else. The beauty of Mexico is being able to design a particular piece that can be made by one of the talented artisans that works a glorious puzzle.'

Be my guest at one of eight different and individually unique accommodations in San Miguel de Allende. They range from a one room studio apartment with kitchenette to a one bedroom casita to a 3 bedroom view home.

I invite you to check out the luxury, turn of the century art deco apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina

Wishing you all the best and a very pleasant stay,

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The location is great. We met several ex-pat neighbors who live on Animas. They said it was like a little family. They were very friendly and helpful, too.

We would love it if there were hooks on the bathroom doors (inside) as there were not quite enough places to hang pjs, etc., when there were multiple occupants. Actually, even for one occupant, hooks would be very helpful!!

Azucena was lovely and took care of any cleaning requests we had. Any (minor) problems we encountered were taken care of in a very timely manner. Christian is a great fix-it man!

Prefect Location, Perfect Size for 2 People

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week visiting San Miguel and staying at the Salma Hayek. The assistance that we received prior to our arrival was greatly appreciated. Lynn's office manager arranged a driver for us who communicated with me several times before we arrived. He was waiting at the airport and got us to the apartment safely, and efficiently. They also offered to provide the essentials in the apartment for us, which we didn't feel we needed, but appreciated the offer since it was almot midnight when we arrived in town.

The apartment itself was comfortable, clean, and located in an area where it was very easy to walk everywhere we wanted to go. There was a little rooftop seating area that was lovely in the evening.

There was one small issue with a missing screen in the upstairs window that caused us to get a few mosquito bites at night as it was too hot to sleep with the window closed, but I communicated directly with Lynn after our trip and she was very quick to respond with affirmation that it would be corrected.

Overall, I can't say enough great things about the apartment, and have every intention of staying here again on our next trip.

Very well equipped and very well located

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Salma Hayek. The short walk to the town center went by two major markets and the launch site for the tourist trolley. The apartment is roomy and had everything. And, it all worked except the local phone. The private rooftop patio was a nice feature. We found the furniture uncomfortable, except for the big king bed which was just fine. The street noise was loud at times. So, if you want to get out and see what San Miguel has to offer and can put up with the hum of urban life, this is a good choice.

Great location - but there are some minuses

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is in a great location. It is within walking distance of the Central Park, several churches, and a Starbucks. The kitchen is well equipped and the bed was very comfortable.

There were lots of books available in the common area.

During my stay I had to deal with a leaky toilet and cockroaches. Lynn was very responsive and took care of both problems right away.

Here are the reasons I only only gave the apartment 3 stars. First, and most important, you can’t flush the toilet paper—you have to put in a small garbage can for which liners were not provided. I wish that this important detail had been disclosed in the property description. If I had known this I would have selected another rental. I am not a prude. I own 3 dogs and am so very familiar with disposing of poop. Just don’t want to deal with that when I am on vacation.

Second, the photos of the apartment make it appear that the apartment is very bright. It’s not. Downstairs, there is one small window facing the street and 2 windows facing the common area. Bulbs in the lamps did not produce much light.

Finally, the apartment was dirty. The shower floor was grimy, surfaces needed dusting, and the whole place needed a good scrubbing.

Totally impressed...this was HOME!

  • 5 of 5

So we'll appointed, totally charming and the very best location one could ask for. I felt safe and pampered with immediate response from Gwendolyn the property manager when I had questions like where to get a wonderful massage. I wish I were able to stay longer. I will be back! Housekeeper was a charm too!!

Mostly nice.

  • 3 of 5

The bathroom odor was over powering. The apartment was very dirty when we arrived. Kitchen, living area and bedroom. There is a open hole to the street outside in the stove hood which causes some dirt to come into the apartment. But, that didn't answer why the dirt was caked on and why there was even spilled coffee in the microwave. The landlord was called and within a couple hours there was a maid cleaning and a plumbers trying to fix the bathroom. The bathroom order got better but was still there and remained throughout our stay. We covered the drains and keep the door closed. The apartment is cute and assessible to the center of the city. Managers very quick to respond.

Owner's Response: I'm terribly sorry to hear of the problems, yet at the same time I appreciate hearing about them so I can do something. We have addressed the bathroom odor extensively and wound up replacing the toilet seal. We will certainly keep checking on this. I have talked to the maid about the cleaning and went into great detail about what needs to be done. We intend to remain on top of the situation.
