About Casa Encanta

A most luxurious two-bedroom retreat, the beautifully appointed Casa Encanta will fulfill your San Miguel dreams.

Located in the western part of the historic Centro, just a 10-min walk from the Jardin, this lovely home was recently constructed in the old colonial style employing the finest craftsmanship. All of the custom-made wooden furniture, stonework, tiles, windows and iron railings were hand-crafted by local artisans using classic designs and the highest quality materials.

One enters Casa Encanta from the quaint narrow street into an unusual open-air hallway with an arched brick "boveda" ceiling. This hallway leads you past the downstairs queen-bed guest room with its amazing tiled shower and carved stone sink in its en-suite bathroom. The bedroom also has a corner fireplace, flat-screen TV on the wall and beautiful bed linens.

The hallway continues up a few steps and into the central "great room" of the house, including living room, dining area and kitchen.

The living room has a custom-made sofa and chairs in front of the carved cantera limestone fireplace. Another TV is discreetly hidden away above the fireplace, behind hand-carved cabinet doors. The square dining table seats four comfortably in fine upholstered high-back chairs. The tiled gourmet kitchen has polished concrete counters and specially lit display niches for the owner's collection of exquisite talavera pottery. Every cooking appliance you need, plus fine dinnerware, is available for your cooking/dining pleasure.

Outside the French doors from the living room is a charming "sala abierta" — or covered open-air terrace with sitting area and fireplace. This terrace looks out upon the central patio with its beautiful fountain and tropical landscaping. To complete the picture, there is even a resident parrot in a cage at the edge of the terrace.

Also on the ground level of Casa Encanta is a perfect little powder room, tiled from floor to ceiling in striking red tiles and accented by a stone pedestal sink.

Upstairs is the master suite, complete with "his" and "her" bathrooms decorated with lovely local tilework, a separate sitting/TV room with leather loungers and fireplace and the king-bed bedroom with yet another carved limestone fireplace. This room has doors opening to two Juliette balconies that overlook the central patio.

Also on the second floor is a den with daybed for afternoon naps (plus an extra bathroom), a separate office with desk where guests can connect their laptops to a high-speed DSL cable, and a small roof terrace with two lounge chairs with a western vista of the beautiful San Miguel sunsets.

A maid comes to maintain Casa Encanta in tip-top share from Monday — Friday from 9 am to 2 pm and on Saturdays from 9 am to noon. She also can prepare breakfast and an occasional mid-day comida, if you tip her extra. The maid also can do personal laundry in the washer/dryer on the property.
