“Thank you Luis and Marisa for sharing your beautiful home with us. Our stay in San Miguel was magical! We enjoyed our daily walks to the centre to experience the exquisite restaurants, galleries and shops. Patrick and I love to golf and had an opportunity to play Ventanas which was a short taxi ride away. Ana and Thomas made us feel very welcomed, it was a pleasure to know them. We made good use of the heated pool, extremely relaxing. Luis and Marisa are planning to come to our home in Canada on a swap. We look forward to welcoming them with open arms. Patrick and Dee ”
Luis's reviewsAs a host (10)
“ This property is one of my all-time favorites. It has a tranquillity and beauty that invites quiet moments and serenity. The aesthetics of the property are exquisite and the artistic touches make living there a magical stay.. This is the second time we have had the privilege of staying at Luis and Marisa’s San Miguel home. Anna and Tomas are like old friends and the area is a perfect distance to the zocalo. We hope to make this an annual experience :-) ”
“Very nice place to stay, quite and confortable, just 5 mns away from the very center, all the restaurants and the market. San Miguel is such an interesting place to visit with lots of art and gorgeous old monuments for art lovers. We found the town just perfect, not too hot, while wandering around with sparkles in our eyes. Thank you very much Luis for your lovely hospitality...”
“We loved staying in this wonderful oasis. Marisa and Luis are an exceptional welcoming couple ,we had the pleasure to spend some time with. This little paradise on earth is beautifully designed and furnished. We felt very comfortable using the house, the very well equipped kitchen and the garden. It is just a short walking distance to the Jardin ( heart of San Miguel historic center). We enjoyed walking up and down the pebbled streets ,joining cultural tours and visiting the Fabrica Aurora ( design and art center) Anna and Tomas were very helpful and welcoming. Everything was beyond our expectations It was truly an unforgettable stay and we felt privileged to experience it. We will highly recommend this swap Thank you very much Marisa and Luis.”
“Working with Luis for this wonderful swap in Mexico was one of the best! We’ve been exchanging homes simultaneously and with points for over 5 years now and this by far was excellent! Luis’s home is perfectly located near town center so we were able to walk down every day. It’s quiet and like being in a miniature paradise before going out to explore San Miguel. We looked forward to coming back every day to cook and relax in the gorgeous gardens and all the comforts of home. Tomas and Anna were so good to us and made sure beds were made, gardens were swept and we had everything we needed. We’ll be back next year Luis and hope that we’ll get the chance to meet you! Thank you kindly. Jack and Cheryl Cardiff by the Sea, California”
“Knowing your work as an architect, we expected a great property and were not disappointed! The house is stunning, the location perfect, we couldn't have been happier. SMA is a great place to visit and to be in walking distance of the Centro area is a real bonus...but to return in the evening to such a lovely property with its trees and gardens and different areas, made if extra special. The gardener and the maid were unobtrusive but very helpful. We would return in a heartbeat to this property and can recommend it highly. Thank you Luis.”
“Luis is the very best host I could have asked for! A gentleman by the book and with great taste. I am his palace is just FAB ! The right balance I believe ;) Thanks to become your friend !”
“Luis's house was beautiful, and held such amazing history! You can tell that he's put a lot of time and love into restoring the property. The location is also very close to the main square, and just a block from a wonderful bistro (Antonia's), from which to catch a skyline of the city. As a family with 4 young kids, the separate bedrooms weren't the greatest fit for us, and combined with the abnormal heat and a few scorpions (also abnormal), we left 6 nights early. But Luis was so kind to give us back points for part of the time we did not stay. ”
“The house is beautiful - we could not have asked for a better host or location. Tomas, the house keeper, met us and explained all the details. We had a great time in San Miguel De Allend and would highly recommend it for a visit.”
“Luis and family are so very lovely. They actually never made it to our house during the house swap because so many people in California knew them and wanted their company. They had people stop by to clean and take care of the garden. We had the option of having a cook. It was on the luxurious side!! But, they let us carry on with the swap and their home was magical and amazing as was San Miguel de Allende and the surrounding countryside! This was our first home swap and it was an exceptional experience. While we were in San Miguel de Allende, we took Spanish language classes, we took some cooking classes, we hiked, we shopped and we traveled to other World Heritage sites. We also spent a lovely day at a hot springs with pools and gardens. Fantastic vacation! Thank you thank you for the swap!”
