1 Bedroom, en suite, with desk, fireplace, ceiling fan, courtyard
In the internet age, it's easy to check out your potential hosts on affiliated sites or About Me (check out my profile there, it's full of easy hot-links to see more about me), but let's get acquainted here first! When my AARP membership kicked in, I became a full-time expat in the Conde Nast Traveler-ranked Number One City in the World, which happens to also be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, like Florence, Italy. If your visit here is simply for some experience-rich R&R, I'm great at offering suggestions and pointing out the hot spots in town, but if you're here to also explore San Miguel as a potential home, I'm an expert. I'm a top Realtor here--originally trained as an architect in undergrad--a Mexican business owner, a published novelist, have built a home here, and can share everything you might wish to know about life in Mexico. I live upstairs, so I'm around to answer your questions! I'm also an Italophile--perhaps I was Italian in another life?--and my home is very European in style. I love the indoor-outdoor lifestyle our weather here encourages, and you'll find my home flows seamlessly with the outdoors--the French doors at the foot of your bed open directly into your fountain-anchored courtyard in the main photo. You'll see from the home description that I work full time and am in-and-out with appointments or sequestered away in my upstairs office, but I certainly enjoy playing the role of host--plan on a Happy Hour that I try to host when time permits so we can chat! And remember, your living quarters here are also perfect for hosting a dinner party with new-found friends--I'm happy to provide a referral to resources to maximize your enjoyment, from groceries & catering, to in-home massage services or personal tour guides. I'm thrilled to welcome you to San Miguel, and to Casa Dos Angeles!
Greg purchased this House in 2013
Why Greg chose Zona Centro
As I mentioned, I'm a top Realtor here in San Miguel de Allende, so I know the best locations to live, the safest in terms of both lifestyle and investment, and Casa Dos Angeles tops all locations. I chose to move here because it's such a short, easy stroll to the heart of our town (called the Jardin, or garden, the town's 'city plaza'), yet it's just far enough away from the noise of the city center (think church bells and fireworks) that it's tranquil by comparison. Casa Dos Angeles sits off the city street (no bus or auto traffic noise) on its own private, gated cul-de-sac, an extremely exclusive location with only seven homes, and offers a sense of serenity rarely found here in the heart of our city. Oh, and if you're wondering why I moved to San Miguel de Allende, your visit will soon answer that question: we enjoy a Manhattan-like lifestyle on a, say, Des Moines budget. I once penned the social column for our local bilingual newspaper and can assure you that you'll never run out of activities to enjoy, be they an active day of touring the historic sites, an instructive day learning Spanish or a new artistic skill, or a lazy day lounging at the pool or at one of the nearby natural hot springs.

Perfect house, perfect location and Greg was just wonderful
A very elegant home.
From the moment we booked this property everything was first class. The correspondence prior to arrival with Greg, the owner, the arrival procedures, the time Greg spent with us introducing us to his home and all the information he gave us helped to make our stay in his home and San Miguel De Allende absolutely perfect.
Thank you, Greg.
Elegant and Quiet
A beautiful property and welcomed by Greg who had laid in fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal and milk for a welcome morning's breakfast. We had a glitch in our arrival, but that was my fault. While we were a bit uneasy about shared kitchen, that was never a problem. Best of all was the enclosed patio garden, where we spent time reading/having a glass of wine. There is also a beautiful park a block away. It's a fair hike to the center of the city, but taxis are omnipresent and inexpensive (60 pesos--a little over three dollars) to any place in the (large) central zone. Excellent restaurants nearby (and downtown). Louisa, who takes care of the house, was extremely accommodating and washed our clothes for a minimal charge. We could not have been more pleased.
Excellent property. Would highly recommend staying here. Our host was very helpful in suggesting sights to see and places to eat. Location was excellent. Property was very quiet , safe and extremely comfortable. We hope to return again.
Perfect getaway palace
Casa Des Angeles is more like a palace that a vacation spot. The living dining room is massive with very high ceilings and great art and decoration to match the scale. Kitchen is large well fitted out and and comfortable. Bedroom, off the LR is perfectly fine with a big four poster bed. Nothing whatsoever to give us a second thought. Maid was lovely. Gate attendant very accommodating. Property is utterly secure but not intimidating. Neighbours all said a friendly hello as we cam and went. Our host is obviously popular with them all. Location is to die for. All easy level walking to Centro and the pool at Rosewood resort hotel. A great choice for a stay in beautiful SMA.
Google the city "San Miguel de Allende:" you will see that we were named by Conde Nast Traveler & Travel & Leisure magazines as the #1 City in the World four times...it is easy to research our city online!
