Photos and Description of the La Palmita vacation cottage rental

Garden house with casita nestled in garden. Enjoy peace and comfort.

$875/month Casita. Main house (VRBO#88178) $1997/month

* PLEASE CHECK REVIEWS AT VRBO #88178 which is for the Main House, however Casita reviews can also be viewed at this site.*

The property is situated in Centro and it takes between 10- 15 min. to walk to the heart of town. All of my guests have enjoyed the walk down as it's fascinating to meander on the many and different, small, winding streets while appreciating the flowers cascading from terraces and balconies. Many guests also look forward to the aerobic exercise coming home! However, it’s easy to catch a $2.50 taxi for a 5 minute ride in either direction.

PLEASE READ 'TRAVELER REVIEWS' on the link above as that will give you a good idea of what other guests have felt about both houses and their visit in general. They say far more than I ever could!

Experience luxury and privacy in one of the most beautiful gardens in San Miguel. Both the casita and the main house are within a walled and secure complex and there is a good deal of separation between the two homes.

The casita is charming! It has an open floor plan which echoes the main house in design and décor. Warm terracotta walls and polished tile floors coupled with a most comfortable queen-size bed with pillow-top mattress, mini-kitchen, a beautifully tiled bath with shower, living area, dining nook, and a lovely view of the fountain and garden.

For both properties there is high speed wireless internet. Most of my guests have downloaded Skype and can sit outside under the shade of the outdoor sala/living room while listening to the fountain, catching up on emails and having chats with friends at home.

Cable television is available in both homes and there are many movies with Spanish sub-titles (a great way to practice Spanish!) as well as American news stations, Discovery, etc. Plus the Main house has a DVD and C.D. player with many C.D's and some DVD's.

From both homes one enjoys the antique cantara stone fountain, lush lawn, flowering garden and vine covered high walls which surround the property. Each has its own front porch which face the lovely and most comfortable outside sala.

The outdoor living room (sala) has a dining area, and comfortable cushioned sofa and table and chairs. This is the perfect place for using your lap-top or simply reading while listening to the fountain. A charcoal barbecue makes it the ideal spot for entertaining and eating outdoors. Above the sala is a very large roof-top garden with a large table with umbrella for morning coffee or watching the sunset in the evenings.

The wonderful housekeeper and gardener live right across the street and keep an eagle's eye on the property. She cleans twice a week and deals with water, trash and oversees all other details. For a small, additional fee she would do your personal laundry when you wish. Her husband is a talented gardener who treats the garden as his own. Their weekly work hours are included in the rent, but if you wished to have them for more time, I could make arrangements with them.

There is off-street parking for one large vehicle behind the walls for you or for your friends and additional space in front of the house.

Please there is no smoking inside either home.

It's a lush, fragrant year round retreat.

The main house is a truly a “home” with many exceptional features …. it has sophistication and charm, but is also warm and cozy due to the unique bamboo and wood beam ceilings, warm terracotta walls and polished tile floors. It has one very large master bedroom with fire place as well as a combination den/bedroom. There is a very large bathroom upstairs and a half bath downstairs.

The first floor is an open floor plan with a lipstick red kitchen which looks out onto the garden and the casita in the distance. There is a dining room/living room combination and a half bath. Naturally, the fireplace is the focal point especially on nippy evenings.

Upstairs the master bedroom is amazingly large with fireplace and again the high ceilings with the bamboo and wood beams which make it cozy as well as elegant. The custom-made queen size bed with its delicious pillow-top mattress guarantees a good night’s sleep. The den/bedroom with a twin bed is just off the large dressing room from the master bedroom.

The adjoining bathroom is quite a luxury due to its large size, beautiful tile work and the fact that there is a lot of natural light from a window looking out onto the garden. It includes both a shower and extra long bath. Women certainly appreciate and take notice when they see it ...we ladies like light and this bathroom has it as well as lots of counter and drawer space. Off the dressing area, there is an office/bed combination for an additional guest or child. The room is full of brilliant colors and overlooks the garden and fountain. Going outside from this room there is a washer/dryer. From that point, there are stairs leading to the crow’s nest terrace with a spectacular view of the Paroquia, city and surrounding countryside.

Keywords: Charming garden house with casita within secure vine covered walls. Enjoy peace and beauty at home while the heart beat of the town's plaza is only a 15 min. walk. Maid Service and gardener.
