An apartment with a view
Charlotte is a lovely host, very helpful and friendly. Chela, the housekeeper, is kind and conscientious. The apartment was perfect for us--had everything we needed.
View from the top
We loved staying in the street level apartment for four weeks in San Miguel de Allende. There was a guest room close next to the apartment for our guests to come a stay. The place is well equipped and comfortable. Our apartment even had a small balcony over looking the city. The roof top patio is a wonderful place to watch the sunset or just to relax. The walk down is all downhill . Some days we were ambitious and walked up to the casa. But most days we took a cab. ( about 3 dollars).
The owner kept us very informed. We felt very safe here. I would highly
recommend casa Caracol.
Thanks so much for your kind review Jennifer. I just hope one day when you return to SMA we can spend a little more time together. You were delightful guests.
An Interesting San Miguel Place
I have stayed at this property several times. It has some pluses, such as the incredible rooftop view of town (and partial views from Apt #2), and really neat design features. It is in a quiet neighborhood (by San Miguel standards). It is a beautiful (if long) downhill walk to center. For most folks, it would be a taxi ride home. While there is a small tienda store just steps away for drinks and some supplies, most shopping will require a taxi or hike to larger stores.
The kitchen in apt 2 is adequate, and well stocked with implements. The furnishings are simple and usable, and the full size bed is better than many in Mexico.
The owners (who may not be on property when you are there) are great to deal with.
Thanks for the review Randall. Glad to have you back again
My husband and I spent five nights at Apartment 2 in Casa Caracol at the end of 2012. It was a beautiful, clean, well-maintained apartment, and we would stay there again in a heartbeat. The kitchen was well equipped, and even though the bathroom was kind of small, it was fine for two people. Thanks, Charlotte, for such a great getaway.
Thanks so much for the lovely review.
Soar with the Eagles!
We spent most of April in Apt #1 at Casa Caracol. I had chosen this Casa from the website
pictures. They beckoned me upward. Wow! What glorious views--180° from inside; 360°
from the rooftop terrace. Truly incredible! We even got to meet the gracious owners,
just before our stay.
My husband uses a cane, but he remained a willing and able walker, inspite of the upward approaches
from Centro. Buses and taxis easily filled in the spaces between longer walks.
The apartment was tastefully and artistically decorated. The open floor plan added a spacious feeling
to the apartment. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom roomy.
I was able to find tennis and swimming right down the hill, on Ancho de San Antonio,
along witb good restaurants.
Maria, the plant tender , did our laundry (for a fee). She even ironed everything!
We loved Casa Caracol. It added to the Magic of San Miguel!
Thanks so much Carolyn,
I only wish we could have stayed longer to get to know you.
So glad you enjoyed our Eagles Nest.
