House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps
Location! Locatio! Location! Why do people love San Miguel? Aside from the warm and wonderful Mexicans and the near perfect year round weather, residents and guests like to walk everywhere. A car is not necessary. This newly renovated lovely home is within a 5 minute walk to the jardin-the town square. You will want to walk there 3 or 4 times a day. Renters beware: Before committing to a rental find out how many minutes the home is
from the jardin and whether the home is on a steep hill.
Casa Central is a short walk from the most popular restaurants,
galleries, Spanish schools, the theatre, plazas, lecture halls, the
The exterior of the house is over 300 years old and one would never
know what is behind the door. You enter into a wide, plant-filled
entrance-way that enters into an outside patio area with comfortable
seating. To the right is the incredibly spacious master bedroom.
White marble floors, a king bed, large white marble bathroom with
two sinks and tons of closet space. The view from the bed is of two
window walls, inspired by Gaudi, that look onto the garden. Almost
completely surrounded by windows, this room flows outside to a large
patio that is surrounded by a cactus-filled garden that has two ponds.
If one walks through the garden to the back of the property, one
finds the second two bedrooms. One is very large with a king bed
that can be separated into two twins. Gorgeous bathroom made with
white tiles as well as a shower made from small, smooth black stones
imported from the beaches of Mexico. The other bedroom at the back
of the property can be set up with a single bed or it can be used by
renters for whatever purpose they wish. This third bedroom has a
beautiful green Mexican-tiled bath.
Above these 2 bedrooms is a roof patio acessable from the garden.
Now, going back to the main part of the house, one walks up a
beautiful, cantara-clad stairway to the living area. The living room
has a fireplace and lovely new contemporary furniture. The dining
area is next to the kitchen to allow for easy living and comfort
when you have guests.
The kitchen has incredibly beautiful granite counters and all new
stainless steel appliances. Microwave. Fine pottery dishes. Gas
stove. An eating patio is off of the kitchen facing the garden below.
Also on this level is a cozy little den with a fireplace, books,
sofas, a tv.
A stairway leads to the roof terrace where there is a 360 degree
vista of San Miguel, including the lovely main church. San Miguel is
famous for its sunsets.
The main level has a washer and dryer.
The entire house has purified water.
Summer time in San Miguel is fabulous! The weather is generally in the
70's with a little rain shower at 4 or 5 in the afternoon. This is why
San Miguel is so popular with tourists in the summer. Also during this
time the countryside is filled with all kinds of wild flowers. And winter is also perfect. That is why our high season is January, February and March.
Comfortable, beautiful and unique
About the Owner
My husband and I visited San Miguel de Allende for ten days, went back to our home on the U.S. east coast, and couldn't get San Miguel out of our minds. We've now been here for 17 years. So we know the town well and can help you, should you desire, design your time here. We are serious about food...so we have a long, detailed list with our subjective opinions.
Our home is a 10 minute walk from Casa Central.

Comfortable, beautiful and unique
Unique Stay in San Miguel de Allende
Caron and Dave are awesome hosts…and if you get a chance to talk them up about all San Miguel has to offer it will be time well spent. They are very open and helpful.
I Highly recommend this house if you want to experience San Miguel in the most unique way!
Thanks Caron and Dave for the stay. It was very much enjoyed by all of us!
Casa Central A+++
The ground floor master suite is downright glamorous.
The kitchen is large and laid out so that many people can work at the same time.
Bedrooms are very private from one another.
Lounging and cocktails on the roof - spectacular
But the best thing about Casa Central is the Owners. They live full-time in San Miguel, have deep knowledge of the City and are very attentive and responsive.
Captivated by the Magic of San Miguel
The house has a huge comfortable light-filled master on the main floor with a superior bathroom and an immense amount of closet space. We didn't use the two bedrooms on the opposite side of the lovely garden but valued the fact that guests would have very private space and separate bathrooms.
The living and dining areas on the second floor are bright and comfortable with good lighting and a gas fireplace to take the chill off on cool evenings. The gas stove, refrigerator and marble countertops with all the necessary pots and Mexican dishes made meal preparation easy. And it was a delight to have unobtrusive housekeeping twice weekly.
The "Gaudi" design is complemented by tasteful art and furnishings. We made minimal use of the top floor patio but the views are stunning.
The stairs and balconies make Casa Central unsuitable for those physically challenged and for children.
Highly recommended. Go and be captivated by the magic of San Miguel.
The house was private and safe and so very relaxing with its garden and water feature, yet you could feel the pulse and magic of Mexico around you. A true sanctuary.
Thank you for the perfect vacation.

“We feel in love with Gaudi when we visited Barcelona. So some of the design features are based on Guadi's innovations. Many, might I say most, of the homes in the center of San Miguel are dark. My husband and I find light to be essential. So we painstakingly designed the house to utilize as much light as possible.”
