Located in the heart of Colonial San Antonio, you will discover Casa de la Buena Vida. As you step into the professionally landscaped courtyard anchored by a central fountain, you will see that Casa de la Buena Vida embraces traditional Mexican architecture with expansive indoor/outdoor living spaces but with every modern-day convenience. Situated on a quiet tree-lined street, this 3 bedroom/3-bathroom home is located just a short 10-12-minute walk to the Jardin, the heart and soul of SMA.

The space
Upon entering the casa, your eyes are naturally drawn skyward by the towering natural stone staircase and majestic tree that grace the entryway. But quickly one is captivated by the blue and white painted pots that envelope the entryway and courtyard and the gurgling of the fountain that creates a tranquil oasis. Conveniently, the main floor is designed to accommodate much of the day to day living needs. With floor to ceiling arched French doors and screened windows that allow for great airflow, Casa de la Buena Vida is bathed in sunlight and warmth. Settle into the master suite that includes 2 walk-in closets, a smart television, gas fireplace, a walk-in shower, bathtub and blackout curtains for your sleeping pleasure. Also found on the main floor is a 2nd bedroom with a full bathroom right next to it, a living room, a formal dining room that seats 8 and of course, the heart and soul of any casa, the kitchen. You will be mesmerized by the crying wall that borders the dining room. Both living room and dining room include a gas fireplace for those cooler winter nights. Not to be missed is the fully equipped gourmet kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances and abundant kitchenware, small appliances and serving platters for all your entertaining needs. If your visit should require that you stay connected with work or friends you will find a well-equipped desk that includes a wireless printer, WIFI throughout the house and both local and US phone service is available.

But there is so much more to this home than initially meets the eye. As you ascend the main staircase to the second story, you enter into an amazing outdoor space adorned by multi-color painted pots and colorful foliage. To your left you will discover the Tequila Room, outfitted with a wet bar, bar stools, beverage refrigerator, smart TV, gas fireplace and comfortable seating. This room is perfect to accommodate a Super Bowl get together or after dinner drinks with friends. We have also added some workout options for the fitness buffs in your group. There is an echelon bike (same as peloton), yoga mats and resistance bands. Take the mats and resistance bands up to the vacant third floor terrace above and start your day with a meditation or workout session while taking in the beautiful SMA sunrise.

This second story terrace also includes an outdoor dining area that easily seats 8 complete with a covered outdoor kitchen, two outdoor fans and an entertaining area well suited for afternoon Comida. There is solar and ambient lighting that creates an intimate environment if you should choose to have a chef-inspired dinner party. Along those lines for the gourmands of the group, we have added a diverse herb garden and the property includes orange, lime and kumquat trees. The second level also includes a private and comfortable 3rd bedroom with a Moroccan themed en-suite bathroom as well as a laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board.

As sunset approaches, be sure to check out the third floor terrace with your favorite cocktail in hand. You will find lounge seating, tables, a wet bar and panoramic views of the Parraquoi. We have recently added shading to allow for enjoyment of this area anytime of the day or night. As the description highlights, the possibilities with Casa de la Buena Vida are endless. For the music lovers in the group, the home is outfitted with a Sonos stereo system throughout. For the safety and comfort of our guests, the home includes a full security system as well as a security camera at the entrance so that you can see who wants to enter, ensuite safes for any valuables and a whole house water purification and pressure system throughout, but if you prefer bottled water, that is available as well. The home is well stocked with the basic amenities you might need for your stay: towels, linens, blankets, robes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hairdryers and much more.

The property also has a one-bedroom Casita with a separate entrance. If you are in need of additional accommodations, check out Casita Alameda.

We look forward to welcoming you to our little paradise in San Miguel de Allende.

Location

San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico

With good weather all year long, SMA is one of the most visited cities in the world. Colonial architecture has been greatly protected as a national treasure in this walking city. Excellent restaurants abound and with copious art galleries, English theater, music venues, dance, hiking, biking, (even Pickle ball) with glorious bougainvillea, it is sometimes said that we are the "Santé Fe of Mexico” with San Diego weather.
