About the property

Casa Déja Vu Is The Best Value In Town!

Security. location, and comfort -- that's what Casa Déja Vu has to offer you. The minute you step into our condo (approx 1250 sf) , you’ll feel right at home. Beautifully furnished with comfort in mind, the casa boasts good lighting, top-of-the-line mattresses, comfy sofas and chairs. The newly-remodeled kitchen is a delight, with granite counter tops, dishwasher, reverse-osmosis water tap, breakfast bar, gas stove, full-size refrigerator, microwave, blender, coffeemaker, and toaster. In the master bedroom, a king-size bed entices you to linger in the mornings or enjoy the charming local tradition of siesta in the afternoons. A flat-screen TV and DVD player complete the Master bedroom. The master bath has double sinks, a tub/shower, and a huge walk-in closet. The large guest bedroom has a queen-size bed, 2 desks, and its own private bathroom with shower. Two gas fireplaces, as well as a portable gas heater, will keep you warm on chilly nights.

You’ll enjoy morning coffee or afternoon margaritas on the lovely brick terrace which overlooks the city. Located in one of the most desirable areas of the city, a 8-minute walk downhill puts you in the Jardin -- the center of the magical, colorful city of San Miguel.

Our gated community has a 24-hour security guard. Casa Déja Vu has a private, secure parking space just outside the door, as well as a full-size washer/dryer in the garage. A fitness club located a few steps away can fulfill your exercise needs, and amenities include passes to the condo pool and gym. Also included is maid service once a week, as well as high-speed Internet and wifi (computer not included), cable TV (including many English-language channels), and telephone for local calls.

About Sandra or Roy Speight

We live in Sun City, Lincoln, California. We first visited San Miguel 14 years ago and fell in love with the city, the country, and the people. Casa Déja Vu is the second home we have owned in San Miguel. We tried renting for a while, but none of the rentals in our price range offered anything but the bare necessities.

Sandra or Roy Speight purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sandra or Roy Speight chose Atascadero

We wanted a place that was as comfortable as our California home, so we have done the required remodeling and updating. Our condo is safe, has beautiful views, and is in the perfect location near Centro. We have everything in the condo that WE need because we live here for part of the year, and our renters enjoy the benefits of that arrangement. Many renters have said that it's like their home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is unique because it is a gated property within Centro. We have easy access to Centro and also an extra measure of security. We are also unique because we are one of the very few locations in town with a swimming pool, a fitness center, and our own private parking space..

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have been travelling for a number of years now and usually rent an apartment or villa wherever I go and I must say that Casa Deja Vu is the best-equipped apartment that I have ever rented. Everything that I have needed has been there and I was amazed to discover 3 different ways to enjoy my morning coffee (French press, drip or percolator) and that there was even a coffee grinder. What a difference it makes having a salad spinner, garlic press, etc. The only item that I that I didn’t find was a bread bin to store the delicious bread available here.

The layout is wonderful with two large en-suite bedrooms with super comfortable beds and the living room has a lovely gas fireplace, which adds so much ambience and warmth to the chilly Autumn evenings. It is in a great location with only a short 10 minute stroll to Jardin Allende, where all the action takes place, though the journey back was uphill I enjoyed the exercise especially after sampling the delicious pastries on offer at Panio bakery just down the street. Another bonus is that it is in a gated community with 24 security so I had no safety worries and the use of a gym and swimming pool were the icing on the cake.

Sandra and Roy have done a wonderful job in creating a home away from home and I will certainly stay at Casa Deja Vu again should I choose to return to San Miguel de Allende.

Oh so lovely !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa Deja Vu for two weeks at the beginning of May, 2018.

The condo is in a secure area about 10 minutes walk from the town center. The condo itself has PLENTY of space. We were two people, but easily four can fit in the two bedrooms each with its own full bath w/plenty of hot water and water pressure. The beds and all furniture are very comfortable, the living room is full of natural light, and the kitchen is VERY WELL APPOINTED. One could easily cook and serve a multi-course meal for 20 people with all the dishes, glassware and silverware. Or - one could easily cook for two people and not have to do dishes for days ;) If you can't find something you need in the kitchen, check the large cabinet in the dining room - trust me, whatever you're looking for is there. The condo was extremely clean, plenty of towels/linens available, and allows access to the owner's washer/dryer in the garage area below. Additionally, the gym on site is great, as is the pool which is great for laps.

The condo comes with an "official greeter" in the form of a friendly bichon frise dog named "Bruno". If you leave the door open he makes himself at home :) I found after a few "No, Bruno"'s he took up a napping spot by the front door. It is a treat to watch him chase the black cat also present in the gated area!

The condo is within walking distance of the centro and many, many restaurants and shops. It is a very steep walk down, and hence a steep walk up. Be sure you have good walking shoes to navigate the cobblestone streets and slate sidewalks. Or walk down, and taxi back up.

Keep your eyes peeled on your walks - doors that are closed now, maybe open later resulting in the discovery of a small shop or restaurant that you didn't see earlier.

Do take some time to visit Jardín Botánico El Charco del Ingenio to enjoy nature and quiet scenery. Fantastic ! Sign up for a great walking tour given in English by the group Patronato Pro Ninos. Plan about 3 hours to learn a lot about history, architecture and culture. Bonus: the tour fee ($300 MXN = $15 USD) goes to charity. We highly recommend a visit to the Biblioteca Publica - nice cafe and several programs available regularly.

We recommend drinks at El Pegaso on the terrace (say hello to Fernando - impeccable service). La Unica and Cien'Tanni are terrific for dinner; pizza on 3rd floor of La Grotta. Indulge in tapas/view of La Luna at Rosewood Hotel. Enjoy SMA!

Beautiful and Conveniently Located Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were expecting a nice place to stay in San Miguel de Allende and were not disappointed. Sandra went out of her way to make sure everything was pleasant and uneventful for us. The two bedroom - two bathroom condo was very clean and comfortable with all of the amenities of home. The terrace and gardens as well as the panoramic view were spectacular. It was only a short walk downhill into the centre of town with all of the restaurants and attractions, and a walk or inexpensive taxi ride home for those without the will or stamina for the uphill walk. As the locals advised us - it is only a few paces into the centre of town and a few pesos back. Thank you Sandra and Roy for allowing us to experience your wonderful place. J and C, Toronto.

A lovely home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to San Miguel de Allende, and we could not have been more delighted with our 10 day stay at Casa Deja Vu. It is in a location that could access the magical center of SMA but just enough on the fringe to be a peaceful haven at the end of a long day of exploration. It is located in a community that is gated and secure, quiet (away from most fireworks), and where there are a number of friendly resourceful Americans living. The condo is large and lovingly and tastefully decorated with warm colors, comfortable furnishings, and beautiful art (including some wonderfully skillful and also heart-full watercolors of local scenes by owner, Sandra) and set up to make you feel right at home. The price of the condo is also reasonable. Whenever we get a chance to return, we will be sure to book this special haven well in advance.

Lovely, Safe Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My sister, a friend, and I stayed for the 2nd time at Casa Deja Vu for 3 weeks in late September to mid-October. The condo is beautiful with comfortable furniture and beds and a nice view from the patio. It is located within close walking distance to the main plaza, el Jardin and is walkable to most other sites in town. I loved swimming in the pool located within the gated condo area. Both the Speights and on site mgmt are very responsive to any needs or for information you may seek as a traveler to San Miguel. Highly recommended!

San Miguel de Allende is a World Heritage Site, filled with buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. It looks more like a Spanish city than a Mexican city because it was colonized by the Spanish.
