About the property

4 bedroom, 4 1/2 baths in a beautiful, park-like setting with many mature trees

The Treehouse is an incredible three-story home (with its own 4-person Otis elevator!!) located in an exclusive, gated community of only 6 grand residences. Set in the most sought after part of San Miguel, the homes in this private enclave were all designed and built by the famous Hawaiian architect, Norman Lacayo. His vision was to create a seamless juxtaposition of modern angles with the warmth and charm of old, colonial Mexico and the tranquility of nature. Because 2 large, mature trees on the building site were saved and incorporated into the walls of this home when it was designed, locals often refer to it as 'The Treehouse'.

Hallmarks of this elegant home are the soothing shades of charcoal, cafe, cream, gold, deep red and violet. The clean lines, contemporary furnishings and soothing decorative style are a refreshing change from the sometimes overwhelming bright Mexican colors and tiles!

Besides its beauty, the Treehouse also enjoys the most prestigious locale available in San Miguel; one block south on the beautiful tree-lined street, Cañadita de Los Aguacates. It is situated right next to the historic Sierra Nevada Hotel and very close to the luxurious Rosewood and Matilda boutique hotels. Only 1 short block away is the Parque Juarez (our beautiful, tree and plant-filled park), where you'll find a popular basketball court, morning exercise classes (yoga/Zumba/tai chi), a myriad of walkers/runners all hours of the day, a modern playground for the kids, various ice cream and snack vendors, local marching bands practicing for their upcoming parade, and possibly even young men honing their bullfighting skills - without the bulls of course! Only 4.5 blocks away, along the charming street Calle Recreo, is the Jardin Principal (the main square in the historic center), where you'll find daily/nightly music and art events and various local food vendor carts.

When staying at the Treehouse, you'll enjoy being within an easy walk to almost everything. Yet, when you are ready to return, you'll enter a peaceful, private and safe abode. Guests frequently comment on the utter tranquility one feels while relaxing in this quiet, extremely comfortable and safe home. Usually, the loudest thing you'll hear is the mourning doves singing outside your windows!

When you first enter our home from the front (ground floor), immediately on your right, you'll find our large, guest bedroom with king-sized bed, private bath, wooden desk, and leather desk chair - if you must work while on vacation! Its wall of windows look out onto our cobble-stoned entrance area (with parking for 1 car) that's shaded by large, mature trees.

Take our elevator, or the stairs, and ascend to the first floor where you will find the other 3 bedrooms. These bedrooms are comprised of 2 master suites, each with a king bed and private bath and an additional small, but cozy bedroom next to the guest suite that's perfect for children, teens or a nanny, as it has its own private bath and a twin daybed with an additional twin pull-out trundle bed beneath. Ascend one more floor to the second level (top floor), for amazing views of the park and the multiple church spires of San Miguel. On this floor, you'll find a very well-stocked kitchen, wet bar, living room, dining area for 8 and a glorious, outdoor entertainment area. Another more intimate patio is just off the dining room and kitchen; a quiet, restful spot where you can take your morning coffee while listening to the soothing sound of water flowing in our pretty, Cantera-stone fountain.

To make your stay even more sumptuous, all beds have 3-inch thick memory foam toppers, luxurious, Egyptian cotton sheets (400 and 600 thread-count) and super-soft, micro-plush blankets. To keep you warm during those chilly times of the year, we also have micro-plush electric blankets and warm duvets.

Our state-of-the-art, whole-house water purification/treatment system (with ultraviolet (UV) light sanitizer, 3 different levels of filtration and water softener) allows our guests to safely drink water from any tap in our home. Our new, stainless steel refrigerator uses this same purified and filtered water to provide cold water in the door and ice in the freezer.

All utilities and housekeeping/gardener service 3 times/week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) is included in the rental prices. If needed, additional housekeeping, gardening and/or a private cook can be made available for an additional fee.

About Owner

Over the years we've had the opportunity to travel to many incredible places in the world, and have been exposed to a myriad of amazing cultures, languages & people. These international experiences had a huge impact on us, shaping our world view in a big way. So much so, that we decided to set about crafting a part-time ex-pat life for ourselves in 2 of our favorite countries - Mexico & France - and we are thrilled with the unconventional life we've chosen!

We currently own homes in the US, Mexico and France & when we aren't able to use them, we offer them to other adventurous people like you!

Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner chose Chorro

We first saw San Miguel 20 years ago & swore that somehow...someday...we would find a way to live here! We began our search for a home here 8 years ago via the internet. Then, 7 years ago, we took the plunge & starting living in San Miguel part of the year, still looking for our dream home, while renting other people's lovely homes in the meantime.

We found that most homes in San Miguel don't offer a lot of privacy and outdoor space because they are essentially townhouses (sharing 3 of their walls with other homes). We also found many homes are often are quite dark and cave-like inside. So, when we saw the Treehouse, (located right next to Parque Juarez), and we saw the extensive, lushly landscaped gardens with large mature trees and how incredibly light-filled, spacious and private this property felt both inside and out, we knew we'd finally found our home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Cindi -

We had a great stay in your house in San Miguel. Thank you. Everything worked perfectly and the house had everything one could want. Lulu and her husband were very helpful.

Thanks again.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to let you know that the kids and I had a great time in San Miguel! We loved the house and got plenty of walking in, going back and forth between our favorite spots in town (including the little tiendita on Recreo, where we stopped almost daily for limonada).

We loved the tortas en el Mercado and the street tacos! Went to Xote (very fun for kids), La Cañada de los Virgines, the botanical gardens (also fun climbing down a ladder we found into the canyon), and La Gruta (kids loved the cave). Had drinks and tapas at the Rosewood and enjoyed countless other culinary delights throughout town. My son played pickup basketball with some of the local boys at the park, and I think he learned to swear in Spanish in the process! :) I loved just wandering the lovely. The town was reminiscent of Antigua, Guatemala to me.

In the heat of the day (and it was HOT), we lounged around and watched tv. Your house stays amazingly cool, which was nice. All in all, a great trip!

terraces extraordinaire

  • 4 of 5

This lovely home was a replacement for us at the last minute due to the original home's unexpected unavailability. The main living area is very light & airy, with lots of seating for morning & evening activities. Our housekeeper/gardener couple were very accommodating, and were a pleasure to get to know during our 1 month stay. The kitchen was adequate for our meal preparation, and if we didn't have something, we got creative. We enjoyed the many church bell chimes during the day, and some of the music at night. On Monday evenings, the local high school band came into the park (fantastic park) to practice. It was a joy to listen to them, or mosey down to watch. Saturday's are fun to go watch the local basketball game in the park as well. There's a fabulous hotel/restaurant right down the hill that we frequented for both cocktails & dinner, but on Saturday nights, the wedding music went until 2 A.M. Ear plugs might be handy to bring along. Thank you to the hosts for this lovely home!

Could not have been lovelier

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (3 generations ) spent our Christmas Holiday at the Tree House and we LOVED it. The house is perfectly situated to be very convenient to the central Historic district without being in the middle of all the hubbub and action. It overlooks the Parque Benito Juarez and has an amazing view of the city from the most comfortable and lovely veranda imaginable. The house is an architectural gem and is beautifully appointed. The kitchen is well equipped. The Wifi worked great. The caretakers took great care of the house and US! The list goes on. We really really loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat. I hope we do!

Beautiful eclectic house at a great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is just perfect. It’s large rooms are comfortable with fantastic beds. Its humongous terraza has A wonderful view over San Miguel. The living room and the kitchen are also what you are looking for for relaxation and comfort. Additionally, the service from the property personnel is incredibly friendly. Downtown is only a 10 minute walk away by crossing the Parque Juárez. Great hotels like The Rosewood, are also within a 10 minute walk. Just perfect.

Too short a stay in this fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are a couple in our late 60s and although I am not suffering from any disabilities or ailments, my wife has had some issues with walking since receiving some arthroscopic knee surgery three years ago. I begin with this to set the tone of this review for reasons that will be apparent later.

The house could not have been better suited for our needs; three tastefully decorated rooms with full en suites provided privacy for all (there was a fourth room which was not needed) while we limited our socializing within the house to the dining room and fabulous patio area overlooking the surrounding area.

The location of the house was particularly good for us all. We could easily walk into town and despite the cobblestone roads and narrow sidewalks; we did not feel impacted by it all. A park sits within a few hundred yards of the house and offers entertainment of all kinds on any given day such as watching a group play basketball, local artists displaying their goods or a pre-wedding parade in honor of a future bride and groom.

Cindi (the owner) has been nothing short of extraordinary in accommodating us. This was a trip that was more than a year in the planning to celebrate my wife’s 70th birthday and Cindi was with me from the very first day. She supplied me with countless bits of information beyond what the house had to offer, from a list of restaurants, to emergency telephone numbers and to/from airport reliable transportation needs. The elevator in the house was defective and offered to re-imburse our deposit should we wish to cancel because of this. The need for the elevator, although a very nice addition to the house was never an issue. Cindi was a terrific host, the Tree House a fantastic residence and San Miguel an exceptional place to visit if not reside.

Finally, the piece-de-resistance, Lulu. Siñorita Lulu is an employee of the owner whom I hired to provide our group a few meals during our stay. She prepared and served us some of our best meals during our stay. She managed to exceed all of our expectations and we could not have been more pleased. The meals were authentic Mexican by design, plentiful and simply delicious. I highly recommend to anyone wishing to have some home cooked meals while visiting the Tree House, please ask Cindi if you can hire Siñorita Lulu. You will not be disappointed.

Enjoy San Miguel de Allende and enjoy the Tree House, we have.

Great visit

  • 4 of 5

The house is as described. We were there during the rainy season and had to deal with mosquitoes. We bought a device at LaComer, plugged it in, and were pretty comfortable from then on. Need one for not only each bedroom but upstairs living area as well. Staff was kind and helpful.
