Lovely Home in Great Location
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Joanna. The house is full of Mexican charm with a lovely garden with a pool. Hummingbirds were always feeding in the garden. The house is lovely and cozy with two separated bedrooms and two baths. The location was great — right between the main square and Juarez Park. The house manager and housekeeper were very professional and all was in good order throughout our stay. Joanna was very responsive and touched base several times after our booking. Would stay in Casa Joanna again on a future visit to SMA.
An Oasis in San Miguel de Allende
With its lush garden and pool, Casa Joanna welcomes you to an oasis in the heart of San Miguel de Allende. Nestled a half block away from Benito Juarez Park, Casa Joanna is the perfect place to relax or from which to stroll the historic center with its magnificent San Miguel Archangel church. The house is also walking distance to venues such as the Rosewood Hotel complex, Instituto Allende, Cava Sautto wine store, Hotel Matilda and its wonderful restaurant, Belmond’s Casa de Sierra Nevada, and other points of interest and gourmet restaurants. If you want to take advantage of Casa Joanna’s kitchen and need provisions, hail a cab to La Comer, a modern and large grocery store where you’ll find almost everything under the sun. For those with a sense of adventure, walk through and shop the historic Mercado Ignacio Ramirez just south of the main square. There, you will also find fresh veggies, fruits, and meats. Casa Joanna provides a peaceful spot to unwind. The bedroom and bathroom on the second level are well appointed and airy. The second bedroom and bathroom downstairs are cozy and street level. The living room, with a wonderful fireplace, has double wide glass doors which open onto the garden and a round glass top table with four chairs next to the pool. Conveniently underneath the stairs, you’ll find a washer and dryer. From the second-floor main bedroom, you have access to a corkscrew staircase that leads up to the roof terrace. From that advantage point, you can sip on a premium mezcal while admiring a stunning sunset. Joanna, proprietor, is friendly and easy to reach at any time. Housekeeper “LuzMa” (Luz Maria), who stops by the property three times a week, is absolutely wonderful and can answer any question (Spanish speaker only). San Miguel de Allende is one beautiful town and Casa Joanna is the perfect place to partake on all there is to enjoy.
Dear Tony....your review is much appreciated....gracias muchísimas!
We hope you will return to visit us soon!
Saludos Joanna and staff.
It really was the best ! This is the place to stay
We stayed at Casa Joanna in early December of 2017, choosing the great city of San Miguel De Allende after our usual villa was destroyed by hurricanes and we wanted to revisit after a twenty year absence. We could not have been more satisfied with our choice of accommodations. It really was the best!
Arranging for the stay with the property owner was effortless, and she was professional and very efficient. Joanna was more than accommodating to our questions, and the casa itself was proof of the care and considerations provided by the team, including the manager and staff on site. We have stayed at VRBO houses before, and although an easy process, in general, I would say Joanna’s system was one of the best. The casa itself is situated within blocks of San Miguel’s historic district, but despite its nearness to the important sector of the city, it was a wonderful refuge from the outside world. Once you stepped inside the street gate, you entered a comforting court yard and house, very well appointed with every tool available to feel at home. On-site manager Aida was there to meet us. She provided complimentary provisions for our first breakfast, and had flowers arranged throughout the house. Luzma, the housekeeper, was there on schedule and kept the house orderly and clean throughout our stay. We felt as if we were family immediately and throughout our stay.
If you are considering San Miguel as a travel destination, Casa Joanna's two bedrooms and two baths was more than sufficient. The kitchen was well equipped, and was the basis for many sumptuous meals at home. Provisions of all kinds are available in the town, including meat, fish, and vegetable markets. Stores with vast selections of cheeses and several bread and sweet shops kept the pantry well stocked. We walked everywhere, taking dinner at many of the fine restaurants that offered everything to suit one’s tastes. The city is beautiful, its residents are friendly and very kind, and one is absolutely safe walking at any time of the day and night within the historic district. And what an historic district! Make sure you take advantage of the many walking tours.
Needless to say, we would recommend San Miguel as a travel destination, and Casa Joanna as the place to stay.

Thankyou very much for your review! We aim to please!

Beautiful Jewel behind the doors of San Miguel
Casa Joanna is a beautiful jewel behind the doors of San Miguel. It was much more than we ever expected. Beautiful inside and out. It was very charming with a patio and pool that made us feel like we were in our own private resort. The roof top deck was lovely and a place where we could see the highlights of San Miguel.
The house is a short walk from the El Jarden (the centre of the city for all San Miguel activities. We went their daily to enjoy the people,the restaurants, and the culture of San Miguel.
The house is close to shopping, activities, guided tours and a short walk to a great park.
It really is a great find and a very special place to stay.
We would highly recommend Casa Joanna to everyone. It was a great experience and a Great Holiday!!!
"Truly a Gem"
We recently stayed at Casa Joanna and it is truly a jewel with a pool! With beautiful accommodations, gorgeous pool and surrounding gardens, as well as a fabulous roof top terrace, Casa Joanna is a real find! We loved how close the Casa was from the park, just a few doors down the street and it was also so easy to stroll down the street to shops and restaurants. When we walked into the property it took our breath away, turquoise pool, lush gardens and beautiful stone wall set the ambiance and we hadn't even stepped foot into the Casa. The bedrooms were lovely, really comfy beds and bedding, beautiful open air concept and well equipped kitchen all made for a fantastic stay! Candlelight dinner by the pool with fresh veggies and fish from the market and a great bottle of wine from the fab wine store near the Jardin made our stay even better. We took the architectural tour which was really worth doing, strolled through galleries and churches and enjoyed some delicious dinners at some of the many restaurants. Casa Joanna is a "Must Stay" and we hope you enjoy yourself as much as we did!
