For the next 3 months, we are resting our heads in lovely San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Just a few minutes flat walk away from the Jardin, the town square, we’ve found a wonderful home that we are renting for $1000 a month. What do you get for $33 a day?
3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 12 foot ceilings, 2 private terraces, 2 fireplaces, maid service twice a week, a gardener visit once a week, a washer and dryer for laundry, and is fully furnished with all utilities included… a lot more than we need. The location is fantastic, and we are once again living in the lap of luxury.
We’ve rented such a large space partly to make it easy for friends to visit, since we are just 4 hours away from LA or SF or Houston.
Just inside our front door is a small courtyard with an illuminated fountain and a wall of ivy. The heat of the day stops at the door, as we enter a lush oasis behind the thick brick walls.
Just up the stairs, we find the first of our two terraces, a great place to have morning coffee or some lunch amongst the aroma of flowers and citrus. We even made some kumquat jam with the harvest of one of these shrubs
Inside the ground floor is a wide open space with living room, dining area, and kitchen. We have a choice of eating our meals at the kitchen’s bar, in the formal dining room, or on the main terrace. The living room is a comfortable space to play guitar and watch the next episode of Breaking Bad on our laptop.
Also on the ground floor is a guest bedroom, which is currently used as a sitting room, and a full bath.
The terrace leads to the master bedroom, and a flight of wrought iron stairs leads up to the main guest bedroom and a rooftop terrace.
The Master Bedroom is an oasis within an oasis, with king sized bed, fireplace, and chaise lounge, along with enough closet space for a family of 8.
The master bath has a hand crafted tub, hand laid tile, and an unlimited supply of hot water with incredible force, enough to work out those knots in your shoulders and lower back. Ahhhh
The guest bedroom and bath are open for business, with a comfortable bed and equally impressive shower.
The rooftop terrace is a great place for some evening wine and tapas, watching the sun set and the city lights come to life. All of the main architectural landmarks are within sight
It’s hard not to love returning home everyday. We like it so much we may never leave
