About Wendy Carroll
My husband and I are seasoned world-travelers. Our company focuses on international business and we have traveled all corners of the world for years. Our "happy place" for the last fourteen years has been our visits to the charming town of San Miguel de Allende. We love the ambiance, the pace, the history, the pageantry and so much more. We find the people that San Miguel attracts both interesting and interested. We love our many Mexican friends who help to make San Miguel the town it is.
Wendy Carroll purchased this House in 2015
Why Wendy Carroll chose Ojo de Agua
We fell in love with "Casa Dulcinea" and her extraordinary views - the moment we saw her. We think that our casa is located on one of the nicest streets in town - it is a hidden gem on a secluded cobblestone street. We bought our home in November of 2015 and immediately went to work renovating and refurbishing the house, its furnishings and gardens. Our remodel was extensive. Casa Dulcinea needed updating and love. And that is just what we did. Look for pictures of the transformation in the Casa Dulcinea notebook.
What makes this House unique
Casa Dulcinea is in a prime location in San Miguel. It is a lovely 15 minute walk to the heart of the town - and the hustle and bustle. Yet your retreat to Casa Dulcinea promises quiet, lovely seclusion, a lush garden and exquisite views. Our home is located in a local neighborhood - with many interesting San Miguelians and ex-patriates. We have a great team of people who will make sure your stay at Casa Dulcinea is absolutely wonderful. Our maids - Rosa and Angela - will clean the casa and change the linens twice a week. We also have Beto who looks after the gardens and keeps the rooftop and patios pristine. We are happy to arrange extra hours for a nominal fee. We also offer meal preparation and will stock the refrigerator and pantry. We share a fabulous chef with some offer properties. Let Mario cook for you - a quiet night at home or a wonderful party at Casa Dulcinea.

A Week in San Miguel de Allende
We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Dulcinea on our vacation. Wendy was beyond helpful in helping us plan our trip and arrange transportation from the airport. She checked in while we were there and left us a very generous welcome basket with goodies and a bottle of wine. The property manager, Jerry, met us the first day to show us around. He was easy to reach if we needed anything.
The house is stunning and is located in a beautiful neighborhood with the most amazing rooftop views. We were there during La Fiesta de Los Locos and we loved watching the fireworks from the roof! The walk to Centro takes about 15 minutes, but no matter which way you go the walk is beautiful. We usually took a taxi back to the house for 50 pesos. The city is busy and full of life, it was so nice coming back to such a relaxing home after our daily adventures. There is so much for a family to see and do in SMA. The restaurants are so delicious that we never did any cooking but the kitchen is fully stocked and there is a grill for barbecuing as well.
I would not hesitate to make Casa Dulcinea your home away from home while visiting. My ten year old daughter said it best, “we left a piece of our hearts in San Miguel de Allende!” We are already talking about our next trip back and would love to stay at Casa Dulcinea again. Thank you Wendy!
The house is terrific: very comfortable and well kept.
The house is very light with great views, patios, roof deck and fountains. The beds are super comfortable and there is a lot of cross ventilation. The management company is very attentive and the staff is well trained and helpful.
Glad you stayed with us - thanks for the review
What a fabulous place!! It is so well appointed, so comfortable and so incredibly charming! The pictures don't do it justice. Views from the rooftop deck take your breath away, the patio outside the living/dining area is beautiful. Artwork, amenities, furniture, landscaping are all spectacular. The weather was perfect - in January it was 50 at night, 75 during the day and we never saw a cloud. Best of all - it was a true pleasure working with Wendy - she is a gift! She recommended activities, (even helped us enroll in some), provided a lovely welcome basket, promptly responded to questions , recommended restaurants (so many amazing ones!), and checked in with us along the way. Her staff (Jerry the property manager, the ladies who came in to clean and the landscaper) could not have been nicer, more professional. Only word of caution, the streets are very rugged, so have comfortable shoes and know that walk into town is about 15 minutes on rough streets. We actually enjoyed it (good exercise, pretty scenery and arriving "home" was always such a joy,) but if you didn't, taxis are a cinch to get and cost about $3.00. This was out first visit to SMA and we will definitely return - it is a magical, delightful place with so much to see and do! And we can only hope Casa Dulcinea #5 will be available!!
Muchas gracias! We loved having you stay at Casa Dulcinea - come back and stay with us again. Thank you very much for your great review

A Beautiful Property
We loved our stay at Casa Dulcinea. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. The views are spectacular but the payment for that is it's location up the hill. It is walking distance to most everything in Centro, but wear comfortable, stable walking shoes - the cobblestone streets are punishing if you have unstable shoes. We generally walked down and taxi'd back up. We would definitely stay here again.
Thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Dulcinea and in magical San Miguel. Yes - those cobbles can be rough. We always tell visitors to forget about fashion and go straight to comfort. Please come stay with us again.
It is a rare week when something intriguing isn’t happening in San Miguel. Local festivals alive with color and sound abound – along with a world-renown literary conference (March), a film festival (July) , Chamber Music Festival (August.) Fine dining along with delicious street foods abound in San Miguel. Shopping is incredible from local handicrafts to world class art galleries. There is no end of fabulous things to keep you busy in San Miguel de Allende.
