About Ivy del Pozzo

After 20 years of a career in costuming for competitive ballroom dancing I decided it was time to make a BIG move.

My love of the Mexican culture, as well as a strong desire to make a difference, brought me to the highlands of Chiapas more than 25 years ago. My desire to connect with people and my skill with conflict resolution led me to work in Indian Human Rights and the preservation of the rain forest. My Spanish language skills were developed at this time and are today important cornerstones enabling me to work here in San MIguel on a bilingual basis.

Loving where I live has led me to want to share the experience of San Miguel with world travelers offering them the opportunity to stay in the casita in my home and view the town a bit through my eyes. I am here to help during your visit but definately give you the space you need to have your own experience.

It has also led me to working in the real estate business with Coldwell Banker SMART giving me the opportunity to Live the Dream and and help others start a new chapter of their life here finding their Dream Home as well.

Ivy del Pozzo purchased this apartment in 2014

Lovely Mexican Casita

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the one bedroom Casita for a week from October 29th to November 8th. Ivy was there to greet us, and make sure we settled in nicely. She had great recommendations for restaurants and Dia de Muertos activities.

The casita was very comfortable, cosy, with a lovely Mexican decor; very authentic.

In the kitchen there was a full size fridge and four burner gas stove, and microwave oven.

There is no air conditioning as the Casita has three large floor to ceiling windows to keep the air flowing nicely.

The beds were very comfortable and the one and half baths were a great size and gave us enough room to spread out. The doors were nice to reduce the sounds of the dogs in the morning.

Great location for walking into town; such a colorful vibe in San Miguel de Allende.

Lots of great places to eat, and shop. Coffee is fantastic! The center of town is so close; we really enjoyed watching the street artists and Dia de Muertos festivities.

Ivy was a wonderful host, very caring and attentive.

If we had any questions, or needed a recommendation; she was right there to help us.

We would definately come back!

Living in San Miguel at the Casita was WONDERFUL.

  • 5 of 5

We came to San Miguel for a wedding. Ivy's casa was located near the Life Pathway, which led us in a beautiful way to the roads that led to the Centro and the heart of San Miguel. The casa had everything we needed and felt like home the minute we walked in the door. I was able to grade papers using the fast Wifi, and the coffee pot was ready for us. She knew we wouldn't have time to run for groceries right away, so that was nice to have ready to go. It was super clear and super comfy. We'd love to go back!

Casa Contenta

  • 5 of 5

One of the many charming aspects of San Miguel is the naming of the homes and casitas. Casa Contenta is definitely the most descriptively-appropriate name for this charming home. Beautiful designed and appointed, with a generous bath and powder room, this one-bedroom hideaway is suitable for short or long-term stays. The charismatic proprietor, Ivy, has thought of everything to ensure comfort and convenience. It's well located to be just far enough away from Centro to be quiet but just close enough for convenience.

Communication was thoughtful and easy. 5-Stars! Enjoy!
