On the third level is the rooftop terrace, the perfect spot for al fresco dining, evening cocktails, or just relaxing on the chaise lounge to read or nap. The many potted trees and flowers make the rooftop a perfect private oasis.

Preparing meals is a joy in this chef's kitchen, equipped with high quality kitchen tools and appliances, including a coffee maker, juicer, toaster, cappuccino maker, microwave, and a KitchenAid blender,

Recent upgrades include double thickness, privacy glass in the master bedroom, a whole-house water purification system, custom made furniture, and new linens, towels, and kitchenware.

About Laurie McIntosh

I first visited San Miguel de Allende for a week in January 2015 and fell head over heels in love with this charming city. I returned in March to spend an entire month and found this beautiful house and knew I had found a home away from home - I think you will feel the same here.

Laurie McIntosh purchased this house in 2015

Why Laurie McIntosh chose Zona Centro

This spacious, light-filled, beautiful home is ideally situated at the end of a small callejón or lane, which eliminates the noise of downtown traffic so common with other Centro locations, yet you are just a short walk to any of San Miguel's delightful restaurants, churches, shops, and theaters.

What makes this house unique

The rooftop terrace is truly an oasis in this downtown location. Potted trees and flowers bring color and nature to the terra cotta tiled terrace that looks out to the nearby hills surrounding the city.

Beautiful casa, great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a wonderful month at this casa. The house itself, which is perfect for a couple or family, is comfortable and beautifully appointed and the kitchen is well-equipped and a delight for cooking. We especially enjoyed the second floor with its great light and windows to the street and open floor plan (living, dining, and kitchen), and the terrazzo. Communications with the owner and house manager were effortless (and personal - we felt that they became friends) and the staff great. We also absolutely loved the location - close to El Centro but on the north, less touristy side and at the end of a sweet essentially dead-end callejon in a primarily Mexico neighborhood. It was very real (and friendly) - people in the house a couple of doors down loved to sing, we heard others practicing the piano and guitar, kids played up and down the callejon (occasionally a bit noisy but they'd generally settle down by 9) - it seemed that something interesting and different happened every day. We've stayed in various neighborhoods during the past decades of travel to SMA, and this is our favorite - we hope to return.

Stay cool sleeping downstairs, close to town

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my one-month retreat in San Miguel. It is away from the noise of Centro, yet just a short walk to town. Everything was top-notch. The owner was extremely helpful and housekeeping was great!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de la Puerta Rosa is a light filled, spacious and fully equipped home. The location is great, a 10 minute flat walk to the mercado. It is in a quiet neighbourhood of friendly people. There are 2 bedrooms and one bathroom are on the ground floor and we never heard a sound from the street. The open living room, dining room, kitchen and another bathroom are on the second floor with lots of light. The kitchen is well equipped with all you need to cook your meals. The 3rd floor terrace has lots of lavender plants, lemon trees, lovely flowers and great views. The perfect place to relax in the San Miguel sunshine. The Casa is clean and tastefully decorated. We really enjoyed a month here and will definitely return. Thank you Laurie for sharing your home.

Wonderful house, great location

  • 4 of 5

“Puerta Rosa” is a charming, well equipped house on a “privada” (cul-de-sac), walking distance from the center of San Miguel. The neighbors are primarily Mexican giving a stay there more of an authentic feel than in other areas. Laurie, the owner, and Jose, the property manager, were responsive and easy to deal with. The “capper” for me was purified water throughout the house. The only thing that kept me from awarding a fifth star was a problem with the hot water in the upstairs shower and tub. When we had friends staying with us,, this was an inconvenience. That said, I would definitely stay there again. Only a week after arriving home, I’m already thinking about returning next year.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We have done many renovations and upgrades to the house in the few years we’ve had it, including the whole house water purification system. Next up is renovating both bathrooms, which will nclude tearing out the tiled wall in the bath and replacing the mixer valve, which should solve the intermittent problem of a generous hot water supply in the upstairs bathroom with other simultaneous demands on hot water. Thanks again for choosing Casa de la Puerta Rosa and hope to welcome you back next year!

Perfect house, perfect neighborhood, perfect town

  • 5 of 5

I almost hesitate to write so glowingly about this house because it may mean it will be booked next time we want to rent it! But I have to say: this house is phenomenal. It has everything you need—including drinkable tap water, a luxury in Mexico!—and is just absolutely gorgeous. And the location is superb: on a little cul de sac at edge of the Centro so you're away from the hustle and bustle of San Miguel streets, but still an easy flat walk to almost everywhere you need to go. Our daughter loved playing in the evenings with the kids on the street. We loved finding our favorite little cafes nearby. It was just a dream. We will be back next year!!

Car: not necessary

With a perfect Centro location, you will have easy access to all of San Miguel de Allende's treasures! A short, flat walk brings you to Mercado Ignacio Ramirez, where you can buy fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables, as well as gorgeous fresh cut flowers. Steps away from the fruit and vegetable market is the entrance to the city's famous artisan market that stretches across the Centro area offering traditional Mexican handicrafts including clothing, jewelry, pottery, and many other decorative arts. Head south past the markets and a five minute walk will bring you to the Jardin, where day and night offer the best spot for a cappuccino or an ice cream and the best place to see and hear music and dancing, as well as street vendors, or just meet up with friends.
