About Casa de la Vista

For a stay in the heart of the old historic district of San Miguel, with expansive views from the roof terrace, visitors will delight in all the "extras" to be found at the charming Casa de la Vista.

This 3 bedroom, 3+ bathroom house retains the charm of its original structure from the 1700s, but also features all of today's conveniences as well.

Recently fully restored and modernized, Casa de la Vista features carved cantera fireplaces, traditional wooden ceiling finishes, hand-painted tiles with colonial designs, and other beautiful details.

On the main level there is a cozy library/media room in addition to the large living/dining room and completely outfitted kitchen. A half bathroom is also on this level.

A patio boasting a countryside view is off the living/dining room, complete with fountain, fish pond, and meditation garden.

One level down from this patio is a guest casita -- a private one-bedroom retreat with twin beds, en-suite bathroom, and its own kitchenette, plus the added bonus of a game room with a 4.5 x 9-foot pool table and all the equipment. Please note: the two twins can be made up together to create a king bed - let us know your preference!

On the second floor, you find a large office space with Vonage phone line for free calls back to the States and Canada. This room has a cable for high-speed Internet, and there are outlets in every room of the house to move the Internet cable with you.

This floor also includes the master bedroom/bathroom (with king bed) and another bedroom/bathroom with queen bed.

Up one more level and you are on the top of the world — the large roof terrace has an open area for lounging in the sun, and a covered area with comfortable seating, wet bar and half bathroom for entertaining and/or relaxing at any time of day or night, although enjoying a sunset margarita from this spot will soon become your favorite past-time!

The broad vista of old churches and historic buildings in the foreground and the surrounding Guanajuato countryside and distant Santa Rosa Mountains in the background will never cease to amaze you. . .

- Whole-house water purification system with good pressure system and water-softener as well
