About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

San Miguel is a small colonial city that is exquisite in the ease with which it carries its venerable age into the modern world. It is warm and wonderful in the human element, with customs that encourage you to share in the city's daily life.

This condominium is part of a beautiful six unit garden courtyard complex which will surprise you with its comfort and convenience. Covered by huge pepper trees, this home never escapes the sense of being surrounded by gardens and being a part of a community. Located in a lively, family-oriented neighborhood - including kids playing ball in the street - yet with easy access to the town center.

The studio is on the third level and provides exclusive use of a covered roof deck from which you can see all the beautiful domes, towers and spires of the beautiful churches of San Miguel, with the mountains in the distance. Many of our renters have told us we have the best terrace in Animas. Inside, there is a full bathroom with a step-down tub and tile-covered walls. The kitchen is fully equipped. Attached to the main room is a glass-enclosed sunroom which extends the length of the studio.

Although San Miguel is a city of hills, walking from here to the central part of town is flat and easy. It is 5-10 minutes to the Farmers'and Artisans' Market and the central plaza, the Jardin, is another 5-10 minutes.

With all these features at very reasonable rates, this condo is an exceptional value. To quote a recent guest, 'The top floor unit with private roof deck was absolutely ideal for us. Everything we could have hoped for was there for our enjoyment and the unit was very comfortably furnished. Certainly, we felt we had found one of the great bargains of SMA.'

Why Sma Home Solutions chose Zona Centro

We love the unique location of this property. Close to the lively center of San Miguel, yet in it's own, secluded, private 'sanctuary' in a quiet neighborhood. We think you will agree.

What makes this condo unique

The deck is an incredible place to spend your mornings or evenings. With a lovely view of the town and it's surroundings, it can't be beat!

Nice Place But....

  • 3 of 5

Overall we liked our stay. Pros and Cons are below.


Location is good, close to the main attractions within walking distance. This place has a lot of authentic Mexican charm. The staff is easy to work with and very responsive, they even came on Xmas day to fix an issue. Kudos to the property manager. The lady who met us at the place was very helpful and gave us a lot of tips about SMA. The property team speaks very good English. The place comes with drinking water which was very good. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes. The bed was clean and the place was well stocked with towels and bedsheets. The terrace is nice to relax.


The bed is quite small for 2 people. If you are 2 with both more than 150 lbs . It is going to be a tight squeeze. There is a fold-out bed available.

The pressure in the shower is not that strong or at least not to our liking. The shower was unique for us. You have to step down to get in.

You won't hear any cars, but you will hear the rooster crowning and crickets and fireworks.

Some of the areas in the place was dusty. We wiped the floor after we reached there. They should clean the place before someone moves in.

Superb - exctly as represented

  • 5 of 5

What a truly pleasant, centrally located and charming studio apartment with fantastic views. I own an rent out in San Miguel and my own place was already rented when I decided to come to town. This special rental will surely meet anyone's needs and it is most affordable - stiff competition for me.

Beautiful "Sanctuario"

  • 5 of 5

I loved this place!! I was there for a month and everything was perfect! I loved being the "penthouse" in this complex - all the windows and the beautiful scenery - particularly on the upper terrace!! Even though it was a studio - it seemed so much more spacious! I would highly recommend this apartment in beautiful San Miguel!

Owner's Response: Don - sorry your stay was less than perfect. We strive for 5 stars. We will be at the property soon and will look at installing additional shade for those who want it during the brief hot season.

just delightful!

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling studio apartment in a quiet corner of Centro not far from the Artisans Market. The views were amazing and I loved watching the birds do thier thing in the trees outside the 3rd floor sunroom. As there is only a double bed I would recommend this for a fairly fit single who would not mind the climb up to the apartment. It was so bright and cheerful. The management company was very good and responsive. As other reviewers have mentioned you will not be able to get a taxi to the front door. This was a challenge as I had heavy luggage.
