My personal home (2bedroom, 2bath) is available for home exchange. I also have 7 one-bedroom casitas/suites that I own as vacation rentals in San Miguel which are also available for non-simultaneous exchanges if needed. Each bedroom has a king size bed or two singles. My home and the casitas have wireless internet, tv, cable, dvd, ipod docks, etc... There's plenty of garden and outdoor sitting areas to relax and enjoy the sun or shade. My home has a full-size upright piano (we are musicians). The casitas have access to two pianos in a community/shared room.
The house was built in 2004-2005. Bathrooms are tiled with handmade tiles from Dolores Hidalgo. Rooms are decorated with art work and artisan crafts from around Mexico and abroad.
A full-time house manager lives on the property and can help give you advice or help you with your travels. There is also 3-times a week maid service, and a cook available for daily lunch or dinner.
In San Miguel de Allende, my home is located a 7-8 minute flat walking to the main square. A very safe, well-lit neighborhood. We are located in Centro, but on the border of the neighborhood of Guadalupe. Our neighborhood is convenient to walk almost everywhere, steps from the artisan market. Public transportation, when needed, is available right on our block. Our neighborhood is a great home base for exploring San Miguel. Although we're in a central location, you'll feel your living in a more Mexican neighborhood than much of what the average tourist may experience.
