Our home

Enjoy the wonderful year-round Mexican weather in a beautiful Spanish Colonial home that is fully equipped, artistically decorated, and comes with full maid service. There are three outdoor sun-filled terraces and patios, fully and comfortably furnished to allow you to enjoy the warmth of Mexico. Each of the two bedrooms has an ensuite bathroom with fabulous rain showers. And, the casita has a pull out sofa and a private bath with shower for the occasional extra guest. The kitchen is a gourmet delight and is fully equipped with all the latest batterie de cuisine. The living space is comfortably furnished with plush sofas and chairs and lots of sitting areas for reading and relaxing or for small conversation groups. The best part is our housekeeper, Alejandra, who is charming, capable, hard working and a pleasure to have around. As well as running the house, cleaning and doing the laundry, she is available at an extra charge for cooking and parties.

Who we are

  1. We are Bonnie and Rupe, a retired professional couple, both former IBMers. Rupe is a well-known sculptor who creates beautiful works in bronze which you will see in our house as well as in galleries in San Miguel. (See the website). We are both non-smokers. We have owned and lived in this house for the past ten winters and love it. Now we feel that it is time to experience some other world destinations. It is our second home so we can be flexible with your exchange. Our primary home is on the coast of Maine where summers are beautiful so we are interested in winter, spring or late fall exchanges in a warm destination. We are avid readers, art aficianados, love experiencing different cultures, speak Spanish and would love a new and unusual experience. We care very much about our home and would treat your home with the same respect we have for ours. We have a small, intelligent toy poodle who is well trained and an experienced traveller. She charms everyone and would be trouble-free if we are allowed to bring her with us.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

San Miguel is rated one of the top destinations in the world year after year. Perhaps it is because of the near-perfect weather year round. Or maybe it is the picturesque cobble-stone streets or Spanish Colonial architecture that has inspired artists for generations. It offers a vibrant mix of artists, musicians, writers and wonderful Mexican folk traditions, fiestas, and religious celebrations. Shopping is a dream with Mexican handicrafts, boutiques, art galleries, and furniture and home-decor shops to choose from. The town is a Mexican National Historic Treasure. And, an unusual benefit, the most interesting people from all over the world visit and choose to live in San Miguel. You may make wonderful new friends.
We are beautifully situated in a neighborhood that is a ten minute walk from the historic center and fabulous restaurants and yet is an authentic Mexican neighborhood with beautiful views of El Centro, from the upper terrace where you can enjoy a cocktail, and a beautiful sunset. There is also the opportunity to study Spanish, Art and Crafts of any kind, writing, photography etc. It is endlessly interesting...
