traveler reviews for this san miguel de allende house rental

The perfect house

Review submitted: April 5, 2014   Date of arrival: March 7, 2014

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.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners 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

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: January 2, 2014

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.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: Candace,

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.

San Miguel Gem

Review submitted: August 3, 2013   Date of arrival: July 1, 2013

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.

Owners response: Dear Sandy,

So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Casa Heloc. Please keep us in mind for future trips to San Miguel.
