Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Heloc is everything we hoped for and more. It's beautiful and

full of conveniences which we really really appreciate. This rental

house is just a perfect spot for visiting San Miguel! We've really

enjoyed the patios, art, kitchen and beautiful furniture.

In a word: Great!

  • 5 of 5
We are just finishing up a 6 month stay in Casa Heloc and it has been, in a word, Great! The house is comfy, very light and filled with interesting folk art. The management company has been promptly responsive when called upon for assistance. Lupe and Vicente (maid and gardener) have been smiling, trustworthy and hard-working. When friends have come by to visit and see the house, they say "Wow, what a great house!" Yes, it is. We will return to Casa Heloc and highly recommend it anyone looking for a charming house in a safe Mexican neighborhood with a great rooftop. Margies at sunset - It does not get any better.

The best rental in all of San Miguel!

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent three months in this charming oasis on the hill above San Miguel - a 20 minute walk to downtown (mostly downhill). This home has a real chef's kitchen - everything you could possibly want. Vibrant colors and beautiful Mexican folk art - gorgeous interior courtyard garden and rooftop. Fantastic property manager and staff, and the owners are great too! When we come back to San Miguel, this will be our first choice. Easy access to the highway and lots of little stores around - the best place we've stayed so far in San Miguel, we'll be back! Thank you so much :)

The perfect house

  • 5 of 5
It takes a while to get to know a house. As my husband and I spent more and more time in the lovely Casa Heloc, it's many charms unveiled themselves. First of all, the house is really well laid out for comfort, and very light. The fact that there are floor to ceiling windows in the living room that look out on a small enclosed garden means that you have constant sunlight downstairs -- which is not all that common in San Miguel. The kitchen has everything you need -- even a dishwasher, oh joy. On the second floor, there are two bedrooms with lovely large baths and an OFFICE. As my husband and I work and write from San Miguel, having an office with two desks was totally wonderful. And it has its own bathroom. The rooftop deck has the most spectacular view. We ate breakfast there every day and often watched the sun set as well.

I have not even touched on the beautiful artwork in the house. Every wall in every room has interesting paintings, wall hangings, or sculptures, and the walls are wonderfully colorful. So unlike houses that feel like spring break rentals --you know, with the bare minimum of furnishings-- this house is a real home reflecting the interests and personality of its owner.

Finally, my husband and I adopted a tiny puppy while we were here. The owner could not have been more kind about the fact that we were introducing a dog to her home. This has been a terrific stay and I would rent this house again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Heloc - the office space is often a key feature for writers or just a place to write out notes and postcards. As pet lovers ourselves we are thrilled when a family finds a pet to adopt in Mexico and take to a forever home in the states.

Charming home with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5
I spent two delightful months in Casa Heloc. This is a light filled, warm and comfortable home, filled with the owners collection of mexican folk art. This is definitely not a "bare bones" rental. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped, the living area is a great place to cozy up by the fireplace, the beds are comfy and there is good water pressure in the showers.
Very few homes in San Miguel have central heating so I was prepared for chilly mornings. This house however, because it gets morning to mid afternoon sun,, warms up quickly.. I found using the rolling propane heater for 20 minutes was enough to rid the chill.
This really added to the comfort.
There is a lovely patio off the dining/living area and a fabulous roof top terrace with breath taking views. A great place to enjoy a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Both terraces are filled with colorful plants and a variety of interesting cacti.
There are many options getting to and from El Central. It is a 15 to 20 minute walk or one can catch a bus (5 pesos) just 3 short blocks from the house. Taxis are 35 pesos. Getting around is easy.
I was so pleased with my choice of Casa Heloc... it truly gives you the opportunity to experience a warm and inviting home in San Miguel.

San Miguel Gem

  • 5 of 5
My husband's first words were " we may never leave." Casa Heloc did not disappoint. The gardens were unbelievable and add to that the spectacular rooftop view, beautiful Mexican decor, and amenities galore. Erica, the property manager, and Lupe, the maid, took perfect care of us. We loved the neighborhood and the colorful walk into Centro. We truly did not want to leave and can't wait to return. Casa Heloc is a San Miguel gem.
