“Excellent value and quality”
Reviewed 15 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

This vacation rental property, known as "Casita del Sol" (House of the Sun) is a great option for families or groups wishing to visit San Miguel de Allende.

I recently stayed at Casita del Sol for ten nights. My group was composed of two couples and one single person. The house is ideal for a group this size, as it has several common areas in which individuals and groups can hang out - there is a terrace with a nice view of the city / valley, a yard with a pool and a quiet area with a hammock, and a living room / dining room.

The house is exactly as advertised on the internet, and in fact is in some ways even nicer than it looks online. The house is not new or luxurious, but it is clean, functional, and fully equipped for shorter or longer stays. The pool is fantastic - it is clean, a nice size, and for most of the day has areas that are both shaded and in the sunshine. The sunset views from the terrace are excellent, and the neighborhood is quiet.

A few other positive features:
* kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for cooking;
* a briquette barbecue is available;
* the location is excellent - walking distance (15 minutes perhaps) to the central square, as long as you do not mind walking downhill / uphill (and taxis are plentiful and cheap if you do not want to walk);
* the staff (housekeeper, gardener, pool attendant) are polite, well-trained, and effective at their jobs;
* the location, being just up the hill from the middle of town, allows you to get in and out of the city without getting caught up in the sometimes heavy traffic in the middle of town;
* there are heaters provided in all rooms (necessary in winter months);
* there is good water pressure, and plenty of hot water for a group of five;
* there is a dishwasher and clothes washer, with soap provided;
* the area is very quiet at night;
* the yard and terrace face southwest, and as such are nice and sunny in the daytime.

There are only a few downsides to this rental property:

* grocery stores are not within walking distance (but they are easily reached by car or inexpensive taxi).
* as of January 2018, there is some construction noise, in the daytime, from condominium projects being built nearby.
* for those who are challenged with walking up or down hills, you will be restricted to driving or taking taxis, since the home is located up a rather steep hill from the center of town.

“Beautiful home, private and perfect for relaxing!”
Reviewed 10 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This vacation home is a fantastic deal. It's very private and a perfect place to get away from the activeness of the city. But when you do want to go out, it's just about a 15 minute walk to the Jardin. It's a pretty easy walk down, although we always took a taxi back up because it's a steep hill. We really enjoyed the walk though - everything about the roads and the houses and the city as a whole is quite beautiful. I really appreciated how helpful the housekeeper Chila was in meeting us when we arrived. All the staff involved were very accommodating. Overall our experience was great and it was worth every cent!

“Wonderful Home & Grounds”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Our family stayed in this beautiful home over Easter vacation 2016 and we really enjoyed the home, gardens and pool. Everything is as advertised or better. The city views are awesome and the gardens around the house are just beautiful. There are quiet secluded places in the gardens to sit and read, the large pool is very private and the house has every convenience we wanted.

Joseph and his staff are easy to do business with and very welcoming.

The city is a short 5 minute taxi ride away, grocery shopping is just minutes away at Soriana and there are a multitude of excellent restaurants close by. Nothing is missing in this home and the surrounding area, and personal security is never a concern either day or night.

We had two very minor issues which may not bother most people. First our teenage daughter was with us and none of the TV control units worked which was an issue for her. We asked Chila (the house keeper) for help with this matter, but she was not willing to correct the situation. Second the house keeper, gardener and pool caretaker come every other day starting at 7:30 am for the morning which we found a bit intrusive. We prefer our privacy and the opportunity to be late risers. But as I wrote, on the whole we had a wonderful experience and we recommend the house to anyone considering a stay in SMA.

Dear Gloria,
Thank you so very much for your kind and generous review. It was a pleasure having you and your family as guests and I hope you return soon. I'll try and sort out the TV control unit....it's a new system (Shaw - via a Canadian satellite)) and perhaps Chila, the housekeeper felt unfamiliar with it and reluctant to offer advice. The usual "start" times for the staff have always been closer to Nine A.M. I regret any inconvenience and will check on their schedule. Thanks again for your helpful comments. best, Joe

Although it is advertised as sleeping 1-6, the third bedroom (twin beds) is not ideal for seniors. In this room, guests have to go outside to enter their bathroom. The other two bedrooms are comfortable and attached bathrooms fine. The kitchen is well equipped with new appliances and lots of dishes and glasses. The many outdoor sitting areas offer shady or sunny spots for quiet time or socializing.

Thanks for the generous review. Yes, the twin bedroom and its bath are not "en suite"... Their entrances are side by side, and inches away from each other. I regret that your senior guests found this to be inconvenient. As described, this bathroom also serves as a changing room for guests using the pool. It would be inappropriate to have visitors going through your bedroom. Sorry.
Thank you again for your review and your stay.
