Photos and Description of the Centro Historico vacation apartment rental

A Split Plan Apartment, on the 2nd floor.

This is a small, elegant, split plan apartment in the Historic District of San Miguel de Allende (see the Map), in the centre of Mexico. It has Persian carpets, original paintings, filtered water throughout and reverse osmosis water for drinking and cooking. It is 3.5 hours by comfortable bus, or shuttle, from Mexico City Airport, less from Queretaro or Leon. The centre of San Miguel de Allende is the Jardin (Har-deen); the Jardin is on the other side of the block this apartment is in. Our street door is 20 yards from the Angela Peralta Theatre. We (the Courtyard and apartments) are set in an entire apartment from the street. The apartment is comprised of a Master suite (walkin closet, ensuite bathroom) and a Guest suite, separated by the living/dining/kitchen/laundry areas; it is on the second floor. Apartments overlook a courtyard and fountain. This creates extra security, along with a daily doorman and camera surveillance. The roof terrace has plants, flowers, outdoor furniture and lovely views in every direction. There are 2 seasons remaining in 2016: Off Season October 21 to November 20, 2016; the Christmas Season (Dec 18 - Dec 31) is $1,500 a week. High Season (Jan1 - Mar 31), the apartment rents for $1200 a week. The Living Room and Master Suite overlook the beautiful Courtyard and fountain. The Master suite has a King bed, large desk, blackout curtains, 2 lamps, a Queen Ann chair, a bookcase, and a flat screen TV, equipped with Amazon FireTV Stick, and a DVD player. Ensuite are a 6 foot, 2 sided, walk-in closet with 7 drawers, shelves, cupboards, and hanging area, with clothes and pants hangars. The Master bathroom has a shower and overlooks the small garden, that is on the first floor. On the other side of the apartment, down a short corridor, and in the south east corner of the apartment is a small, fully furnished Guest bedroom. It has it's own bathroom. The Guest Suite has a desk and chair, an upholstered Club chair, a footstool, and 3 lamps; French doors open onto a flowered balcony, over a small garden. The full Guest bathroom is separate, has a tub and shower and overlooks another small garden. A heater, a fan, a white noise machine, Vonage phone, wireless HS Internet, and a flat screen TV, with Amazon FireTV Stick (MB) and Apple TV (GB), are furnished. There is an automatic washing machine; but there is also a dry cleaners and laundry across the street. All linens (sheets are ironed), towels, paper products, and laundry soap are included. You enter the complex (again, please see the Video, although it is for people only interested in renting the Guest Suite), through a courtyard with flowers, trees, and a lovely fountain. There is a roof terrace with views almost to Madrid; guests enjoy it for morning coffee, watching the hot air balloons, to entertain friends, or for sun bathing. The ambiance of the apartment is French Moroccan, so shade is valued and blackout curtains are available at many of the windows; the light here is very strong. This is not a hostel, B&B, or pension. Sex, age, and sexual orientation are irrelevant. Due to it's location, around the corner from the Jardin, this apartment is ideal for people wanting to get to know San Miguel and the Historic District. Maid service, 4 hours 2 days a week, is included; more may be available with one month's notice. No subletting, no pets, no smoking; overnight guests limited, with prior permission, and at the rate stipulated. NOTE: I do not rent by the night. You can stay the days you want to, but your rate will be for 6 nights. Please check the Calendar for availability. The Guest Suite only is available off-season at a different rate.

Restaurants and cafes are ubiquitous - you'll never get through them all. There are 2 small foreign film theatres around the corner from me, on Hernandes Macias; the movies change daily. (You can get on their mailing lists or I can send you the week's movies from my email.) There are classes in most of the arts, cooking, and Spanish. The second largest English language library in Mexico is a block and a half away; it has a theatre, a cafe, and a large sunny, WiFi'd courtyard. DHL, FedEx, and UPS all operate here.
