Diane Varney purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Diane Varney chose Colonia Guadalupe
We are delighted to finally have a home base in San Miguel de Allende. It captivated us on our first visit in 2001 and is still captivating us now. This property was a wreck and now has everything new except a few original walls and ceilings. It's great because it is only a few blocks from Via Organica (with store and restaurant), plus it's only a 12 minute flat walk to the jardin. The neighborhood has been designated as the Arts District and has over 25 murals to discover.
What makes this Apartment unique
We created our dream home and property and it is unique in all San Miguel. It is tasteful, original and functional.

My stay at El Nido
Lovely, well appointed property. Good location. Worked very well for us.
Would advise anyone staying to head to the tourist office opposite the cathedral for a good map of the city and then you are set.
The place was more beautiful than the photos!
It is within walking distance to everything.
Thank you, Doreen for being our guests. Sorry I didn't get to meet you. We hope you'll come back and stay with us again someday.
Lovely space in an awesome neighborhood!
You can certainly tell that this apartment was designed by an artist. The beautiful colors, artwork and finishes are evident throughout the entire space. The kitchen was well equipped and it made it easy for us to cook meals there with ingredients bought at the local markets. The beds were comfortable and the area was nice and peaceful at night. Guadalupe is considered the Arts District of San Miguel de Allende and one can spend an entire day photographing the murals in the neighborhood. It's also handy having La Organica close by! Eva was great in helping us check in and out of the apartment plus offered any assistance if needed. I'd definitely stay there again! Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet Diane next time!
Thank you so much for staying with us and for your lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed Casa Caramba and Guadalupe. I hope you can return and stay with us again--I'd love to meet you and I'm here most of the time.
Fantastic place to stay!
Our stay at Casa Caramba was phenomenal! We were greeted by Diane as soon as we arrived, and she was available throughout our stay, to answer questions. She also left us with a comprehensive list of places to see, eat, tours, bus lines, banks.And a wonderful housekeeper ,Eva, who we adore.
The apartment itself is gorgeous, filled with Diane's artwork, gorgeous tiles on floor and ceilings,, fresh fruit to greet us, in a fully stocked kitchen. We did NOT want to leave! The bed was super comfortable and cozy.
I could go on and on, but will stop, with the recommendation that you come stay here yourself!
It was lovely to have you stay with us. So glad you are as enchanted with San Miguel de Allende as I am! Really hope you can come back and stay with us again.
My husband and I recently spent eight weeks at El Nido. This rental was loaded with Mexican charm....as an artist, Diane truly worked her magic in the design and decor of El Nido. The kitchen was fully equipped and very functional, as well as a visual delight. The living room sofas were very comfortable and the master bedroom bed and bedding were superb. Storage was more than adequate. We really appreciated the extra space on the balcony and enjoyed reading and barbecuing outside. The neighborhood was exceptionally quiet compared to some previous rentals in years past. We also liked the flat walk into town and the easy access to the Fabrica. Eva, the housekeeper, was a delight and very patient with my poor attempts at Spanish. I will always have fond memories of the laughs we shared. Diane and Rob were very attentive in responding to any questions and issues that arose. Highly recommend this rental. Enjoy!
Thank you SO much for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and we hope you will come back again one day to stay with us.
Diane and Rob
We had a great 6 day stay at El Nido. Communication with the owner was quick and easy (we planned at the last minute, so we were in a hurry to book a place). The location is excellent, just a short 15 min walk to the center of town. There is a small convenience store across the street, where they have some of the basics (there's a larger store around the corner from Via Organica restaurant three blocks away). El Nido is well appointed, with lots of character (painted ceilings, wonderful rugs, mexican art). There is lots of space and both bedrooms are very comfortable! The balcony to the inner courtyard is amazing ! Señora Eva, who is the caretaker, was wonderful ! I fortunately speak Spanish so we had great conversations about San Miguel, life in the USA, she she was able to provide a couple of restaurant suggestions. She also stopped by to clean mid-week, which was great. Overall, a great stay in very comfortable surroundings !
Thank you SO much for taking the time to write your review. I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay so much--very gratifying for us. We hope you'll return again soon!
