“We had a great time at Gilbert's place in San Miguel de Allende! Gilbert is an amazing host, very communicative from the time we agreed on the trip, was available throughout the trip for not just house related questions, but anything to do with our trip overall. I can say Gilbert's hospitality made our trip from good to awesome! The place was spacious, very nicely furnished and thought through for a stay of 8 days. The beds are so comfortable and the water nice and hot for showers. We used the large furnished patio for our breakfasts every day and maximized the sunshine! The rooftop was perfect and we wished we spent more time, but November evenings got a bit chilly to spend that much time there. I can only imagine what a great treat it can be in summer. The little uphill walk to get to the house is something we miss terribly - it was a great way to end the day, to burn off all the calories from the delicious food we stuffed ourselves with. We never felt the need to get an uber to go anywhere, the city is so walkable and so pretty that you would miss out if you did not explore all the little streets. We made good use of the swimming pool, sauna, jacuzzi at the club house and the gym. We fell so much in love with SMA and the place, that we are seriously considering getting a little condo for ourselves there. Maribel, the housekeeper, made us good lunches and dinners (she even did the groceries herself) and kept the place clean and helped with our laundry for a small fee. She watched our son on a couple occasions when we had to attend to some work-related stuff - she brought along her little girl who became an instant friend for our son. We cannot thank her enough for that! What a great experience overall! ”
Gilbert's reviewsAs a host (5)
“We had a wonderful time in San Miguel de Allende. Gilbert was great with clear communication. His manager met us and showed us around the spacious and beautiful condo with all the appliances you can imagine , even a capuccino maker. A lovley cleaning lady who can also provide meals . When our family joined us we found the condo has a porta crib which made our daughter 's travel easier to not have to bring theirs. Plus a large dining table for our family meals. The view is spectacular and on two early mornings we gazed at the hot air balloons floating by across the coral colored sky. We used the heated pool with a view and the jacuzzi. No one went to the gym but we had lots of excersize walking everywhere in town The shuttle was so conveinent with frequent stops to town and even to a mall with a grocery store. San Miguel has continuous festivals , films , music and art. The Aurora art center is an amazing place with expo of several artists , art classes, antiques and two restaurants. We did day trips to Guanjuato city , Dolores Hidalgo and Atotonilco. All full of historic impotance and beautiful architecture. Gilbert checked in with us several times to make sure we were comfortable and offered suggestions of excellent restaurants in town. We don 't have enough words to express our thanks to Gilbert for our wonderful vacation and family reunion. Carolyn and Fernando”
“I spend an entire month at Gilbert beautiful home in San Miguel de Allende. It was hard leaving this Amazing city filled with culture, old world architecture, and friendly warm people. Gilbert was so informative and helpful with all my request, he would always check in on me. Also Maribel his Housekeeer/Cook was outstanding and very easy going, she is good with anything you request I’m fairly healthy and cooked lots of healthy meals for me. Gilbert I can’t thank you enough! Hope to have the opportunity to return in the near future. ”
“I don't know where to start. First off, Gilbert was a fantastic host. He was so responsive to all the many questions I had, he was thoughtful about what we might enjoy doing while there and he checked in to see how we were doing. He was a wonderful host. The apartment itself was large, comfortable, well equipped and completely provided for. It lacked for nothing. All in all, it was a first-rate experience and I would repeat in a heartbeat should I come back to the pretty town of San Miguel. Frankly, now that I'm back home I would rather be in Gilbert's apartment enjoying the good life.”

Where is it?
The atascadero neighborhood is a gorgeous quiet neighborhood a stone throw away from the hustle and bustle of Centro "downtown" yet a short walk away from all the action.
This neighborhood is perfect for anyone looking to relax in San Miguel but still be able to walk to dinner, drinks etc yet be away from all the noise.
