Holiday Rental in San Miguel de Allende - Christmas and/or New Years, 2014/2015

A glitch in the system, in other words, the previous tenant in a matter of days, decided that Mexico was not for her.  She has left.  Another tenant has secured the house beginning January 15, 2015.

That leaves it available for rent for both a week at Christmas and a week at New Years!  This has not happened in years!

The free standing house is surrounded by lush landscaping including fruit trees and flowers.  
Inside the gate is this lovely area to sit and enjoy the view or greet Velcro, the cat!
 The suede covered sofa opens into a queen bed for additional guests.  The furnishings are quite comfortable
 The first floor is "open concept" with living, dining and kitchen areas.  Plenty of windows provide a light filled space with views to the many gardens.
Stairs lead to the second floor which provides the master bedroom with adjacent bath.

 The bed is a queen size bed with a very comfortable mattress.  Plenty of windows along with French doors
 again provide lots of natural light and spectacular views of the canyon and hillsides.  Plenty of space to
read a book, check emails or sit out on the balcony to revel in the blissful atmosphere.  The room is 16 ft x 20 ft, which is a very large room.
The bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom with a large shower.

The third floor is the roof terrace which is the size of the entire second floor.  It has views of the mountains in the distance, the gardens below along with the canyon and hillsides.

Rental for the Christmas holidays would be from Sunday, December 21 until Saturday December 27th.
The cost would be $750 USD along with a $300 USD security deposit which is refundable within 30 days.

Rental for the New Years celebrations would be from Sunday December 28 until Saturday, January 3, 2015.
The cost would be $750 USD along with a $300 USD security deposit which would be refundable within 30 days.

I've been told by B&B owners along with hotels that there are no rooms available for either of these holidays  PLUS that is just a room, which is well over $100USD a night, for a room.  This is a house that is a ten minute walk to the jardin or five minute walk to the artesan's market along with the vegetable and fruit market.  In addition, it is very quiet!  A rarity in Mexico.

It's a deal.  If interested, please contact me at

You forgot to add the fact that renters won't have to "walk the plank." (Unless they cross you, of course.)

Kim, you could come down and stay from Nov 15th til Dec 15th....for a "special" rate. GET OUT of the cold!

I promise you won't have to walk the plank.

Let me add an endorsement. I have stayed in the casita several times. I can think of nowhere else I would stay when I visit San Miguel de Allende. The place is decorated to make visitors feel as if they have always lived there.

Thanks for the endorsement Steve. Now that you have a "grand home" in Barra, hope you still come back from time to time!

I'd love to come, but I got too much going on here this time of year.
