Last Chance! Casita Tranquilo for Rent!

The ad comes out in Atencion this Friday for renting the casita long term.  IF you are interested in it for September, October or long term, NOW is the time to make your move. 

IF history repeats itself, the first or possibly the second person to see the place wants it and rents it long term.  It is furnished far beyond the typical rentals in town.  It has grounds far beyond anything else in town - at least in the price range of $800 a month! 

With the amenities of two queen beds - one in the bedroom and the suede sofa opens out into a queen bed, it could sleep four (when you have company).  However note it does only have one bathroom which is accessed from the bedroom located upstairs.

Other amenities are Canadian satellite TV (120 channels), wireless internet, once a week maid  service, along with all utilities and a landline phone for local calls.

There is no extra charge for laying in bed looking out through the French doors to views of the canyon, sky and the nightly flights of the bats.  In addition, no charge for the incredible sunsets over the mountains.

Nothing to enjoy but cool breezes, quiet times, clean air, and waking to the sound of

Shower - no tub.  We are very water conscious since we live in a semi arid area where water is precious.

The views from the roof terrace are an added, exquisite bonus.
A table and chairs with an umbrella allow for dining, reading or whatever up on the roof.

If you're interested, please leave a comment and I'll get back with you immediately.

By the way,  there are many cultural events in the fall along with wildflowers taller then my SUV for as far as the eye can see in the countryside.

Come on down to peace and tranquility.

Hola Babs -

The last time you shared your guesthouse on your blog we bookmarked it for future trips. It's perfect.

I always imagined (don't know why!)it to be up the hill on Cuna Allende, past La Posadita. Then when Shannon posted about Hansen's - I know exactly where they are - someone commented that they can see your house in the distance, so I am confused. Of course I was going on assumption, previously.

We do not yet have my travel dates for 2014, but if your guesthouse is available when we get them we're interested in booking it. Can you email and tell us the location please?

Thanks so much,

Dean - If you know where the mercado for veggies and artesan items is located I'm directly above that up Cuesta de San Jose just below Balcones in Col Azteca overlooking the canyon.

Looks lovely and like a GREAT spot! A month for a weeks hotel cost - sweet.


Hi Babs,
I am interested in renting the Casita for October and possibly long term. Would you please send details: deposit, etc. Love your blog;makes me ever so "homesick" for my beloved San Miguel.

Fredericka - Requirement for long term is first and last month plus signed lease plus security deposit of $300 to cover damages and/or long distance calls on landline phone. Security deposit is returned at about 45 days.
Email me at with specific questions.

Yes, I know the mercado. When I project to my time there (which I spend a lot of time doing - I "live" in San Miguel more and more in my head these days) I picture myself walking out the door and to town...and I like staying where I can stop at the mercado for veggies right before I'm ready to return home, so I don't have to carry them around all day. You have a perfect location! Thank you.
