About Ariel Emmerson, Rental Manager

Hello and welcome. My name is Sarah and this is my family's home away from home. I remember it well - my parents were semi-retired when they fell in love with San Miguel de Allende (SMA). The stories of festivals, music, food, and good people filled our evenings upon their return from their SMA travels. In 2007, they started going more to SMA from their home in Vancouver, BC where our extended family lives. When they were not in SMA, they missed it terribly, and found themselves returning many times each year. They loved it so much, they eventually bought a casa and later built a casita where you will find our family's art, warmth, and joy of SMA living. They wish they could have spent more time in SMA, but since the family and grandchildren were in the Pacific Northwest corner of Canada, they decided to share their home with others. My father took care of my mother, the love of his life, until she passed away in early 2017. Hearing the joy in their voices as they talked about this beautiful family home made our family want to continue to share it with others. My mother often described SMA as her "happy place" - may it become yours as well. I'm sure you will find our community of dear friends (Ariel - our Rental Manager and Jerry - our Property Manager) are communicative, warm, and happy to help. Welcome...

Ariel Emmerson, Rental Manager purchased this house in 2014

Why Ariel Emmerson, Rental Manager chose Allende

We chose this location because it is in a diverse and safe neighborhood. We wanted a home that would be walking distance to everything that SMA has to offer. This house also attracted us because we could enjoy beautiful views from the roof-top terrace, and have elaborate gardens with fountains on the main level.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed when I went behind the front gate. It was like being in your own private oasis! It was beautifully maintained. I loved the the how the rentals were built. A labor of love.

Jerry was just the best! I felt like I had known him my whole life. So engaging and doing an excellent job of maintaining the property and the needs of what I needed. I also met Rosa. Couldn't speak a word of Spanish; but a warm smile has no language.

Just a beautiful environment. So glad I found it and look forward to visiting again.

Smiles.

Wonderful experience. Beautiful setting. Host, great!

  • 4 of 5

We spent the month of March 2018, at "Lugar Pacifico" in the Allende neighborhood and had an exceptionally wonderful time. Maid service and friendly made our visit very pleasant, especially when our purified water bottle had to be replaced. Loved the location and look forward to our returning in the future.

Very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Very modern, clean and light. The second bedroom is very small. The garden is lovely and it felt safe. A short walk to the Ancha, maybe 15 minutes, all downhill. Always got a taxi home for 50 pesos. Easy to get into Centro.

First Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The casita met all our expectations and more. It was very well appointed with all the comforts of home. We made great friends in the Casa during our stay. Flat easy walk into town and an array of good local markets and stores in the area. Ariel the property manager is very trust worthy and professional and you can rely upon the local property management team for any emergency needs. Highly recommended.

I loved staying in the casita

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just as the listing indicated, and more. When you arrive, there is a welcome basket with coffee, wine, cheese, and snacks. There was even butter and cream in the refrigerator. Jerry and his staff do everything to make you comfortable and are easily available by phone or email.

The location is in the Allende Colony, about a 20 minute walk to Centro and 15 minutes or less to the Instituto. The large supermarket, La Comer, is about a 20 minute walk in the other direction. If you have a lot of groceries, there are taxis available in the parking lot.The kitchen is well equipped, so cooking at the casita is a pleasure. And, there's a grill and patio on the ground level as well as a rooftop terrace.

Idyllic oasis in San Miguel

  • 5 of 5

I can't rave about this place enough. We LOVED our stay in the casita, so much in fact, that we extended our trip to stay longer. It is the perfect getaway for a couple looking to explore San Miguel and also feel like a local living here. The gardens and house are so peaceful and serene. Gorgeous gardens. The rooftop is perfect for a morning cup of coffee, watching the sunset or reading a book in the afternoon. The casita is so charming & cozy, we felt right at home. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need to cook your own meals (if you want a break from dining at the incredible restaurants in town). Washer and dryer with detergent - which came in handy as we stayed longer than we expected. The property managers - Jerry & Yvonne - were incredibly welcoming and met us on arrival and were happy to help with any questions we had.

Within a few blocks, you can walk to the local produce markets and taquerias. To get to the main square is about 20-25 min walk (we would usually walk one way and take a cab back for less than $3 USD).

Highly recommend a stay here! And stay a few days longer than you think you'll want. Trust me, you'll wish you had more time!

In 2013, Condé Nast magazine selected San Miguel de Allende as the #1 destination spot in the world! Since then, they have listed SMA as one of the ten best vacation destinations in the world. San Miguel is a cosmopolitan city with daily cultural events and first-class restaurants. Since San Miguel is a haven for artists, musicians and art-lovers, the beauty of the art everywhere. Music fills the streets; in the clubs, cafés, restaurants and in the Jardin (the center of town).

SMA is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Spend days wandering the cobblestone streets, browsing the shops filled with pottery, art and antiques. Many people come to SMA to learn Spanish.

The San Miguel weather is temperate, so you can enjoy a perfect blend of cobblestone streets filled with magnificent architecture, outdoor activities and cultural events.
