This beautiful home away from home is a wonderful combination of history and modern conveniences. The 22 inch thick walls keep the quiet interior comfortable and the terraces have some of the best views in town. The outdoor covered living room, with cozy traditional furniture, is a guest favorite. Here you are surrounded with beautiful plants and the sights and sounds of San Miguel. There are two lovely, private terraces just outside this area, with views of cathedrals, jardins and all of San Miguel. The entrance to the apartment is a wall of windows which keeps the 34 ft. x 24 ft. living room, dining area, and kitchen light and bright.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, dishes, pots and pans, and filtered drinking water for cooking and serving your latest Mexican cuisine. Or, you can just relax while enjoying a CD, television, or surfing the internet. We also provide you with free Vonage phone service for those calls to the U.S. or Canada (from Alice's house if you need to make a call.) Down the Penthouse hall you'll find the 24 ft. x 16 ft. master bedroom where a luxurious king size bed offers you a scenic view of cathedrals, flowers, greenery and blue skies through the bedroom window. The linens are 100 percent cotton and the pillows and comforter are fluffy, down-filled. Just off the bedroom is an 8 ft. x 16 ft. full bath decorated with blue and white tiles uniquely installed by a well know San Miguel designer. There is also a studio apartment on property that is not listed but just ask; we'll be happy to fill you in. M-F maid service is included. More
