Color is everywhere in Mexico, streets and markets, food and flowers, homes and gardens. Our casita is no exception, and it clearly reflects the exuberance of rich colors freely combined in the unique Mexican way. This Mexican relationship to color is alive in our light-filled one bedroom casita, recently converted from a wing of our antique colonial home in the historical center of San Miguel. The main room with gas fireplace combines living/dining area, and kitchen with full sized fridge and stove. Sunshine beams in through skylights and two glass paneled double doors open out to your own private patio, the perfect place to enjoy meals alfresco. The bright sun filled bedroom with queen size bed has skylights for star gazing and a window facing the courtyard's fountain and flowers.

The bright sun filled bedroom with queen size bed has skylights for star gazing and a window facing the courtyard's fountain and flowers. The en-suite bathroom is decorated with a colorful hand painted ceramic sink. Casa Mandu is a large walled garden property containing the Casita, the owner's home, a historic adobe hacienda,and a two bedroom Garden Villa rental unit. As well, a guest suit in the main house with queen sized bed and attached bathroom is available for short term rentals for guests of our Casita or Garden Villa. The lush walled garden behind the main house is a quiet retreat for all. Our bubbling fountains will soothe away your cares as you read or relax in the shade of our 100 year old mesquite tree. Pomegranate, avocado, orange and lime trees also compliment the garden and butterflies and hummingbirds visit daily. Maid service is provided daily and is included in the rental price. Located in the Historic Center of San Miguel, a 3 block, level walk finds you in the main square. (El Jardin). Colonial architecture, historical landmarks, fine restaurants, cinemas, pharmacies, artisan markets, art galleries and supermarkets are all within easy walking distance. The Canadian owner lives on site and can advise you on dining out, places to visit and arranging transportation to and from any of the area airports. More
