Imagine this, start your day with morning coffee on the roof-top terrace with a view overlooking the church steeples of San Miguel. In the afternoon, relax poolside with a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
Our condo is located in the Villas de Allende, a small gated complex with a 24 guard and secure parking. The tranquil landscaping includes a garden of flowers, in bloom year-round, flowing water, two ponds with turtles, frogs, and water lilies, tropical plants, a carpet of grass, and an abundance of shade trees. The location is on the edge of the hustle of the city. Yet, a short, 20 minute, flat walk will take you to the heart of colonial San Miguel. If you prefer a taxi, you can catch a ride to the center for 45 pesos, about $2.50 US or the city bus is a quick 5 min walk away.
We have recently remodeled the condo—three outdoor patios, two bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, dining area, living room--where traditional Mexican color meets contemporary design. The furnishings include a teak dining room table, and hand carved, hand painted furniture.
Both bathrooms have recently been updated with new fixtures, Mexican tiles, and colorful ceramic painted sinks. The kitchen is equipped with stone counters, new appliances, and everything you need to prepare home-cooked meals. A separate faucet with filtered water provides safe drinking water.
The interior lighting can be controlled from soft and romantic to bright and hard-working light. Three skylights provide plenty of natural light in the hallway and bathrooms. The kitchen has glass doors to the back patio and a large window facing a tile mural of old Mexico. Soft mini-lights under the counter provide atmosphere. The living room has soft wall lights that flicker like candles from the wall scones as well as spot lights highlighting various pieces of local art. A stained glass lamp hangs above the teak-wood dining table. All rooms have bright lights for reading. For your safety we have installed motion detector lights at the front door, on the stairs to the terrace and up on the terrace to guide you to the light switch which turns on a series of hanging retro lights.
The large master bedroom has a king bed with new mattress, leather chair, large closet with built-in drawers and a bath with a shower and soaking tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed (also with new mattress), desk and chair, and a shelved closet. The second bathroom, with shower, is located just outside the second bedroom. Both bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. And for the cool winter nights portable room heaters are provided.
There are three outdoor lounge areas. The one just off the kitchen is a wonderful place to enjoy your first cup of coffee in complete privacy. The second area is the front patio, 15 or 20 steps from the pool, with a wonderful view of the landscaped grounds. The highlight is the roof-top terrace with a variety of sitting areas, hammock, and hanging chair. The terrace also has a food preparation counter, double sink, grill, and lounge chairs. There are screen-type curtains to use if you prefer afternoon shade.
The flowering heart at the entrance to our condo is an invitation to enter, relax, and love your stay in beautiful San Miguel de Allende.
