Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Christmas Special: due to cancellation the last 3 weeks in December are now open. Book 1 week (Saturday to Saturday) and get 1 day free; 2 weeks and 2 days free; 3 weeks and 3 days free. See Calendar. Christmas here with the local posadas and pagents is nearly free of commercialization. No matter your faith enjoy a tranquil and spiritual December with us. Our home has been called an eco-lodge with a "secret garden" watered entirely by re-cycled grey water.

Designed by Japanese-American architects, Casa Chepito has amazing views not only from its balcony and terraces but also from inside the house. Enjoy coffee or drinks under the "tejado" on the roof with views to the mountains of Guanajuato. Fronted with a huge, eclectic garden, it is just 5-7 blocks from the Jardin yet is a quiet and safe hideaway. It has an open-air yet private Japanese bath, a well equipped, colorfully tiled kitchen, fireplaces, purified water system, high speed internet and cable TV, as well as the two front suspended mountain bikes for use by guests. Eat fruit from the mature orange and avocado trees; pick herbs from the kitchen garden. A cook is available. (Please ask me specifically about location).

The smaller bedroom has a boveda ceiling done by a master craftsman with a covered terrace ideal for breakfast. There is a new covered 'outside room' on the roof terrace, where you can watch vermillion fly catchers playing in the giant bamboo, with views of town and the valley to the mountains of Guanajuato beyond. There is a garden with fruit trees in back, and off-street parking. The gardener/handy-man and housekeeper come three times a week.

Located in the centro, mid-way up the hill from the jardin (6 blocks), this two bedroom, two bath home is the perfect place to relax, read a book while dozing in a hammock underneath the mesquite tree, or simply do nothing but watch birds overhead on their way to the Jardin Botanico, or the fish as they feed in the pila. In town yet on a quiet street, enjoy the many restaurants and shops of San Miguel, or take the bikes out for a spin on the miles of single track.

From Casa Chepito it's ten minutes on foot down to the main square, 15 minutes up to the JARDIN BOTANICO, Mexico's largest botanical garden, and by bike, minutes away from more than 800 miles of some of the best mountain biking trails in Mexico. Adjacent to the landmark orchid farm, there is a heated pool at the gym just across the arroyo.

As a happy renter recently commented:

"'Casa Chepito' is a country home in the city. (You really can walk downtown in five minutes, but once inside the property's walls, you are in a 'Secret Garden' kind of world.) On every level, it opens 'wide to the view', and it may well be the best view in San Miguel. The huge garden is terraced down from the house to the street (no traffic) and has 3-story high bamboos that will astonish. One of Casa Chepito's best points is a big, comfortable eat-in kitchen with windows to the view. Those who like a 'natural' setting, will love 'Casa Chepito'."
