Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

LOCATION LOCATION, just 2 short blocks from the Jardin, in the historic centro part of San Miguel and flat walking area. The Artesans Market and Mercado with fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and flowers are just a block away. The Biblioteca is a block away. The Biblioteca, the largest English language library in Mexico is the place for movies, concerts, books and a very good restaurant. You can even get the New York Times daily at the Biblioteca. The owner is usually located on the property and there is also a property manager. Both are available for questions and suggestions.

Casa De Las Divas has two, two bedroom, two bath casitas. Each casita is on a separate floor, one lower and one upper. They can be rented separately or together. Luxury sheets and towels are provided. Each casita is colorfully and comfortably furnished, with a nice-size kitchen. Beautiful oriental rugs are in the living area and bedrooms. The bathrooms are ensuite. The spacious living/dining area overlook the interior courtyard with its fountain, plants, and flowers. The living room has a nice gas fireplace to keep the chill away in the mornings or late evenings.

The casitas have a rooftop garden with a beautiful 360-degree view of San Miguel. The Churches of San Miguel and the mountains create a mesmerizing vista. The terrace is a perfect place to read, relax, sip a margarita or just take a siesta. The living room overlooks a patio with a fountain and a profusion of colorful flowers and plants. Often there is a turquoise hummingbird enjoying the flowers.

The casitas are part of a historical construction and contain many interesting architectural details with thick walls and archways on the interior.

Listening to the sound of the fountain will help get you in the rhythm of San Miguel. The Artesans Market and the Biblioteca are less than a five minute walk. I can arrange for babysitting services if they are needed.

The downstairs casita has a private outdoor breakfast patio. Each casita has 1100 square feet. The bedrooms in the upstairs casita have beautiful boveda ceilings.

There is a $60 fee if initial arrival to the property is after 9 pm.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

My stay was quite nice. One week, location is fabulous. Walking to the main plaza was easy. Going farther, a cab was always close by. Our place was 2 bedroom, 2 bath. Beds very cozy!

We did not use the kitchen, however, seemed well equipped . There were 3 of us. Me, Nina and Grand Daughter. As women sometimes do...we are talkers, our upstairs neighbor shouted down they could hear every word we were saying ! I did not think we were loud, and the windows were open. Bottom line, yes stay at this lovely home, but keep looking if your Honeymooners. Installation is poor. We did not leave until 6 pm, check out was 11 am, how nice that they let us stay until our ride to the airport. See.....nice place, nice people. Norma in California

Good

  • 4 of 5

Melissa was so very helpful with things to do: concerts to attend, even texting while she was away on holiday,

Casita was a little in need of some upgrades to the bathrooms, but for the price and location it was a steal

Great location, beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Casa De Las Divas is close to everything, and was perfect for our week-long (not long enough) stay in San Miguel. The casita is filled with Mexican artwork, the most comfy beds, nice hot showers, fully equipped kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, and flower-filled roof top patio. We even had the pleasure of a visit or two from the owner's cat, Horchata, who snuggled on our laps while we watched TV. Melissa, the owner, was very warm and welcoming, giving us lots of suggestions of fun events and great places to eat. Don't miss Zandunga on Sunday afternoons! Loved our stay!!!

Perfect location with the best beds in San Miguel!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in San Miguel de Allende and I believe we've found a perfect casa. Let me say first that the location is A+++, just a couple of short blocks from the jardin, Starbucks and all of the action that is San Miguel. The casa is very charming as well as comfortable. Our casita had plenty of space for two couples and we each had our own bathroom. The casa is well outfitted and the beds are the most comfortable we've every slept in away from home. The landlord was very helpful in suggesting transportation that were very affordable and reliable. She also checked in with us regularly by email and sent suggestions for dining as well as activities. As a result we experienced a wonderful week in San Miguel and will definitely try to stay here again!

Fantastic Place to Stay In Magical San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Upper Casita, with all the required amenities and all the attention given to the decoration, there is beautiful vegetation everywhere and a nice fireplace for chilly nights, and very important bottled water, also a wonderful shower with plenty of hot water. I have rented before but was never greeted with a most beautiful floral bouquet in the living room. The owner was not in San Miguel but kept in frequent contact to assure everything was alright even going the extra mile in forwarding any info she received regarding events in San Miguel. Lorena, the housekeeper is a sweetheart and was always available if we needed anything. The house is situated within walking distance to everything such as wonderful restaurants, beautiful boutiques, cultural institutes, etc. When we did take a cab to further distances such as Fabrica Aurora, a must see, the cost was minimal. I am a senior traveling with an almost senior and we had a most wonderful time in San Miguel. We were there during the Festivities to the patron Saint, it was an entire weekend of music, crowds, church bells, firecrackers, parades of indigenous people. We loved it and were in the midst of it till 6 a.m. without any problems and felt totally safe. If you prefer a quieter visit choose another time. I would definitely recommend this rental and if I return I will be right there.
