Casa Cielo - Centro Colonial Charm
You can have it all! True 18th century charm and 21st century convenience on one of San Miguel’s oldest streets, in a quiet, desirable neighborhood just three blocks from San Miguel’s elegant, festive Jardin. This beautiful home is charming and comfortable, offering bright, colorful interiors, gracious outdoor living, and stunning views.
The first master bedroom has doors leading to a plant-screened terrace, with a king-size bed, a walk-in closet, and tiled bath and shower.
The second master bedroom has a garden balcony and a vaulted boveda ceiling, with a queen-size bed, and its own walk-in closet, tiled shower, and private studio.
The guest bedroom has twin beds, a walk-in closet, and tiled bath and shower, and its own living area.
All bedrooms share an internal stairway to rooftop terraces with extraordinary views of the Parroquia and town, lake, mountains, and sunsets. Lie in the sun on chaise lounges or sit in shade under the tiled veranda.
You’ll love your choices for relaxation and enjoyment throughout this thoroughly modern home with 18th century walls. In the living room you’ll find overstuffed sofas and chairs, a hand-built fireplace, and thick, warmly colored walls. In the dining room you may gather for meals at a long country table. The brightly tiled kitchen is ready for cooking or for being served.
Relax in the stone patio by a sprinkling tile and stone fountain. Sit outdoors at stone tables or in the cool shade of the outdoor sala with its overstuffed sofas and chairs.
This home is in the best area of town, across the street from the home of actress Margarita Gralia, close to buses and within short walks to everything, only three blocks from the Jardin. There is parking on the street and a supervised parking lot is close by. Though very quiet by San Miguel standards, the neighborhood has its own wonderful little bar, the Fat Mermaid, recently featured as not-to-be-missed in the New York Times.

This is a wonderful, spacious and very unique home. We loved all of it. You can easily and quickly walk anywhere in town from here. Jay provides a great walking guide and house manual with restaurant recommendations and more. I would highly recommend this home. ”

This is a very unique home with lots of outdoor space and an awesome rooftop patio. Very characteristic design for the area and loaded with charm. This city totally took us by surprise and we look forward to a return visit to pick up where we left off. The owner was very responsive to questions and made planning a breeze. Would 100% recommend San Miguel with Casa Cielo as your base!”

We were in awe of this beautiful home. As persnickety designers we were very impressed how grand and well appointed the house is and the views are amazing. The city is beyond what we expected and the food was incredible. What a jewel!”
