OMG ! Where do I start ?!?!? This place and these people will make your stay so memorable, you will want to return year after year. A five minute cab ride from the center of town, takes you to a very special property high up on a hill with a 360 degree view of this ancient colonial city. Sunsets from the home's mirador have an almost spiritual feeling of peace, and at the same time, highly romantic. The architecture, interior design, and lighting reflect the gracious old world elegance that is the very essence of San Miguel de Allende. Every modern aminity is provided by Michelle and Lawnie, the owners of Casa Grande. At the end of your stay, you will feel as if you have made friends for life, AND indeed, you have. I can not say enough.
Casa Grande exceeded our expectations! The property is absolutely beautiful, and the owners and staff very welcoming and helpful. We feel that the view from the rooftop garden is among the best in San Miguel de Allende!
This property is about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the Parroquia, so far enough to be away to be very peaceful, but close enough to be part of the action ... in any case we often used one of the plentiful taxis, and no ride was more than 50 pesos, currently about $2.50 US.
While there we took a day trip to Guanajuato. This was well worth a day of our trip.
I can't see why anyone wouldn't love staying at this exceptional property.
We spent 6 days during Christmas time in Casa Grande (4 days in Jacaranda room and 2 days in Margarita room.) We booked the place without reviews and were basically taking chances.
When we arrived late on Christmas eve, the owners greeted us with a snack tray and bottles of wine. The place was above and beyond our expectations. The place is upscale newly built with stunning architectural details. The rooms we stayed in were beautiful, clean, with nice bathrooms. There is a common area on the rooftop that has the most amazing view and amenities.
We had made plans on Xmas day elsewhere but ended up cancelling and joining the owners and their lovely expat guests on the rooftop. Lawnie and Michelle make you feel like you are home. They are one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. They cater to your every need, help you plan your day…
Casa Grande in the nice part of San Miguel. It’s about 15 min walk to El Centro, away from noise. We walked most of time. Also, it’s easy enough to get a taxi. They are cheap.
I highly recommend this place. When we go back, we’ll definitely stay there again.
