In a word: Great!
The best rental in all of San Miguel!
So happy to have you as our guests and glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have and your dogs back any time!
The perfect house
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.
Charming home with spectacular views
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.
So glad my last minute cancellation worked with your timeline, the dates meshed and you could stay at Casa Heloc. Please keep us in mind for future trips to San Miguel - it is truly beautiful anytime of the year. Thanks for taking the time to share your experiences at Casa Heloc and please feel free to reach out to me at any time for more info our lovely town.
