Photos and Description of the Centro Historico vacation house rental

A +/-3900 square feet luxury home with delightful patios, terraces & roof deck.

“Casa Tranquillo” is a 2-bedroom, 5-bath luxury home on the cusp of central (“El centro”) San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, MX.

This bright and airy architectural oasis is available for weekly or monthly vacation rental. A mere ten-minute flat walk into the heart of town, it is snuggled among other luxury homes in a quiet, private, gated - and truly international - neighborhood (a 'Privada'), which offers a unique blend of country-like living and sophisticated “joie de vivre”. From the expansive roof deck you'll see empty fields, homes dotting the hillsides, and the top of La Parroquia (the largest cathedral) in the center of town.

Walk outside the gates of our Privada to the popular Mercado (marketplace) just three blocks away. Here you can mingle with the locals and buy the freshest fruits and vegetables, clothing, shoes, and a wide array of hand-crafted artisan keepsakes. Walk another few minutes to el Jardin (the Garden) - the focal point of village life from which numerous festivals and parades are launched!

This spacious +/- 3900 square foot home was originally designed with three extra large bedroom suites, each with its own full bathroom with a shower and/or a copper or whirlpool tub. We currently use the downstairs bedroom as a den/TV/family room, yet there is a sofabed to accommodate two additional overnight guests.

Casa Tranquillo offers a total of three full bathrooms and two half baths, including a guest bath on the roof deck, perfect for enjoying that delightful space.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed with soaring iron frame, a traditional brick Boveda ceiling, plus a gas fireplace to take the chill off a cool winter night. There's also a generous walk-in closet/dressing room with a wall of custom built-in cherry drawers. There's even a cozy outdoor nook for quiet reading time. The bathroom features double sinks, a quaint bronzel bathtub and a shower.

The second bedroom offers a classic queen-sized, four poster cherry bed, and a bathroom with a shower custom cherry built-in closets and drawers.

With San Miguel’s marvelous weather, you will want to enjoy the three major private outdoor areas, which are adorned with a variety of flowering bushes, plants, herbs and fruit trees.

A wall of floor-to-ceiling glass adjacent to the living and dining areas open out to a splendid back yard with a covered entertainment area that seats ten in front of a wood-burning fireplace. Bamboo trees and other shrubs adorn the periphery. ''S'mores', anyone?' A gas grill is also provided for your outdoor cooking pleasure.

The front terrace on the second floor is a great spot to lounge in the cushioned, wrought iron recliners. Lemon, orange and lime trees, in addition to bougainvillea and other flowering plants, soothe your senses.

Enjoy alfresco dining on the roof deck at the lovely round, Mexican-tiled table. You can spend the afternoon relaxing here since there is a microwave, full sink, and a stainless refrigerator in which you can stock with your favorite cold beverages to quench your thirst. Two additional unique features of this roof deck are the hand painted tiled mural, and a very convenient 1/2 bath.

The chef's kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, including 'All-Clad' cookware, a gas stove/oven, microwave/convection oven, electric juicer, blender, toaster, Krups coffee-maker, garbage disposal and dishwasher. Most of the appliances were purchased in 2013/2014. You will find a large pantry immediately off the kitchen - equipped with dishes, margarita glasses and other essential items, with enough room to store your own food.

Our housekeeper, Anna, takes wonderful care of the house. She will keep the house clean and lovely throughout your stay. Our handyman, Omar, is at the house to water the gardens and respond to any maintenance issues or questions two days per week. And, he is always on call should an urgent situation occur. He will instruct you on the proper use of the fireplaces and gas heaters.

This home is loaded with additional amenities including a security system, hotel quality water purification system, Wi-Fi throughout the house and satellite television.
