Casa Tranquila Available for Rent - Long Term - San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Here we go again!  To honor a friend, I rented the guest house to someone who wanted it only from January 15th until May 15th.  Now the renter wants to leave April 15th, 2015.

If you, or anyone you know is looking for a LONG TERM rental, a minimum of one year, please take a look at the photos below.  If interested, I can be reached at

                                                                      This is the house.
                                                                          And the gardens.
 Suede covered sofa opens into queen sleeper sofa.  First floor is open concept living/dining and kitchen area.
 Light, bright and cheery with many windows to enjoy the gardens that surround the house.
                                              This is a view facing west toward other gardens.
                     Standing on the stairwell that goes to the bedroom, bathroom and roof terrace.

                                                 Bedroom with comfortable queen size bed.
     Plenty of drawer and cabinet storage along with good size closet.  Cross ventilation from north, east and west.
 French balcony off of the bedroom.  A great place to sit to enjoy your morning coffee or a divine place to    read a book, or whatever.
                       Bathroom with good shower along with plenty of fresh towels and linens.
                                                         Views from the roof terrace.
The house rents for $850 USD a month.  This rent is inclusive of all utilities, landline phone, maid once a week, internet, Canadian satellite TV (120 channels).  To hold the house, the first, last and security deposit is required.  ($2550USD).

The house is located in a very quiet part of San Miguel with unparalleled views of the mountains and nature.
It is a 5 minute walk to the mercado for fresh produce with another 5 minutes to the main centro plaza (jardin).

It is a little bit of heaven in a town known for being a bit of paradise.

Your casita looks fabulous. If I didn't love where I am living I would move there myself. Hope to see you soon. I leave for Austin March 31 but will be back sometime in June. xoxo Donnis

Where we'd like to get away, but there's so much to attend to here.

Donnis, I responded to you as though it was an email! I don't know if you got that message. I asked if we could get together for lunch Wednesday or Thursday. I'll also send you an email!

Steve Cotton said...

As a frequenter stayer in the casita, I can testify that it is even better than it looks.

Babs said...

Kim, thanks for your kind words. It is quite a peaceful existence to live on this property. Of course you know that I would love for you to visit San Miguel, again some day.

You also know that all that stuff that is there to attend to will be there if you leave and come back. Well, anyway, it always was for me, ha.

Babs said...

Oh thanks Steve. I so missed having you here this that you have your own place, I hope that doesn't mean that you'll never come back to see all your friends in San Miguel!

I second Steve's recommendation. Really a "turn key" rental with everything one needs to be comfortable. Wish I was back there looking out over the terrace!

Great looking situation Babs - Is there parking off-street?

Babs said...

Take to the Highway - I wish you were too. What a great guest you are welcome back anytime.

Calypso, it is on-street parking. Now that the street is a dead end there is no traffic.

I sent you am email today. I have a very reliable and good friend who is interested in a long term rental. She has excellent references. I have been helping her look for a place.

Oh dear, I wish we were ready for a long term commitment, but for now two months is the max...

Babs said...

Peter, what two months? Possibly, my house would be available since I must travel to Texas in the near future.........
Let me know.

Peter Kouwenhoven said...

Hi Babs,

We are planning for November and December, but if we can house sit we may be persuaded! We love cats, so Velcro would be well spoiled.

Let us know when you want to be in Texeas and we will work it.

Cheers, Peter and Shelagh.

Babs said...

Hi Peter and Shelagh - It's hard for me to commit this far out, but I will be renting my house out for December and January for sure, and possibly February as well. It will rent for $900 per month, if that is of interest to you.
Thanks for your interest.

Peter Kouwenhoven said...

Sounds great Babs! Contact me at...

And we'll suss out the details.

Babs said...

Will do, Peter and Shelagh

Hi Babs, I will be moving down to san miguel in September. I think your place is lovely. It would be just me and my german shepherd. Can you contact me about renting. Thanks, Julia

Hi Babs,
I will be moving to San Miguel and coming down either in August or September to look for a long term rental. Your place looks beautiful and wonder if it is currently rented and when it would be available for a new renter.It would be just me and my 13 I am an excellent renter and would provide references.
Thanks in advance for responding.
