About our home

Our home represents an unmatched value for properties in the historic center and the points required to swap reflect an adjustment because of construction which is now limited to finishing interiors in 1 house 3 houses away from us.

Our beautiful home is centrally located on Zacateros Street within the gated development of La Fuente, and is just a short walk to the town square, also known as the “Jardin”, the heart of San Miguel's historic center, surrounded by great shopping and fantastic restaurants.

On the first floor is one of two master suites as well as a study and powder room. Both of these open to an interior courtyard which has a tranquil fountain and seating area.

On the second floor is the living room with tall dramatic, hand-stenciled ceilings and a large fireplace. French doors open to an outdoor sitting area. Enjoy brunch or dinner al fresco among the bougainvillea and jacaranda trees while listening to the songbirds or eat inside in the formal dining room with fireplace. Off the dining room is a bright and sunny fully-equipped kitchen as well as laundry services.

Further up on the third level is a lovely second master suite with fireplace and ample closet space. Finally, on the fourth floor is a large rooftop patio. Reserve at least one night to enjoy sunset cocktails as dusk sets in and the magical city lights come to life.

Just a few steps away is a the pool and jacuzzi, ideal for unwinding and taking a break from the busy streets of El Centro. Truly a peaceful oasis right in the heart of this four hundred year old town. The pool area has been fully renovated and looks better than ever.

The courtyard/garden has an entrance onto a private driveway giving you easy access for unloading groceries and luggage.

Smoking is only permitted in outside areas (roof, terrace and courtyard).

Children of older age are welcome, however we discourage little ones due to the large stone staircase that does not have a handrail.
no pets are allowed.

We require a Security deposit of $500, refundable one week after check out and once we have verified the condition of the home. In addition a $150 fee is required for cleaning, check in and check out and 7days a week assistance from our Management company.

Housekeeping is once a week.

Our preference would be to swap houses for Hank and I alone or on occasion with our daughter, her husband and 2 kids, however this would be rare especially if we swap internationally.

Within the USA we are interested in swapping for homes in California, i.e., Santa Barbara, La Jolla, Del Mar, Palm Springs, Carmel and internationally we are open for ideas.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home!
