NOTE: MORE PHOTOS WILL BE AVAILABLE SHORTLY! BRAND NEW APARTMENT!
OVERVIEW of your perfect home away from home:
Apartment AGNES (AFTER AGNES MARTIN) is A BRAND NEW (DEC 2013) DESIGNER LOFT-LIKE SPACE IN CENTRO within walking distance to everything. This gorgeous all white and wood, modern-rustic apartment is a wonderful alternative to pricey boutique hotel rooms. Located in an EXCELLENT location, the apartment is a 5 minute walk from the Jardin, where many historic monuments of Centro San Miguel, including the world famous Parroquia, are located. An array of good restaurants, cafes and shopping are also located within a few blocks. Hotels within a stone's throw of this special apartment start at $350 USD per night. Please check out Dos Casas Hotel for an example of pricing - we are 1.5 blocks away.
Here, you will have complete privacy in a thoughtfully designed, warm and lovely space.
AGNES has a new, designer ivory colored polished concrete kitchen with fridge, counter top stove, nice pottery, drinking/wine/shot glasses, coffee mugs, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, and all cooking utensils you will need for your stay including pots, pans and a few spices. There is as a nice counter for eating or hooking up your computer as well.
The living area/bedroom has a queen (or king) sized bed for 2 people, down duvet cover, wonderfully comfortable mattress, Restoration Hardware Italian linens, flat screen HD TV with 200+ channels (including US channels), WIFI, excellent space heater and a window where sunlight streams in during the day. There is a custom ivory sofa and wooden coffee table for relaxing and reading. Outfitted with gorgeous modern lighting, this room is simply fantastic.
Off of the bedroom you find a new, ivory colored polished concrete rain shower in the bathroom with designer turkish towels, new toilet and lovely rustic wooden bowl sink from India.
This apartment is one of two identical apartments in this two story building. If you are traveling with another couple or want a separate space for your kids, you may wish to rent the entire building and have the privacy you each require.
ROOF TOP DECK:
A few steps up the common staircase, you arrive at the rooftop deck where the sunset views are completely unobstructed. Lounge in a lounge chair, roll out a yoga mat, or have your morning coffee overlooking the Sierra Madres and the hilltops with small pastel colored houses dotting them. A relaxing and private spot. Flowering plants add a lovely touch of green.
WHY AGNES is DIFFERENT?
SAFETY: On a safe block in the heart of Centro Historico. Friendly neighbors, easy walk to town. Inside doors lock and are made from steel. Bedroom door locks for extra security, however, in 7 years, we have had absolutely no incident of theft or other. Totally safe for single female travelers.
WARMTH: Houses and larger apartments can be FREEZING in the winter in San Miguel as the evening temperatures drop into the 30's and 40's F. BLANCA is a perfect small-ish size that heats quickly with efficient heater and natural sunlight throughout.
STYLE: simple, non-cluttered, stylish, comfortable space with the best of all amenities.
LOCATION: Walk everywhere! You can not beat this location! Plenty of safe street parking at all times of day or night. One way street that does not allow buses and trucks makes for quiet!
This apartment is a totally unique concept for San Miguel. It's a way to stay in a designer suite with the ability to cook and have peace and quiet. It is the BEST alternative to the expensive hotels in the area. It's simply a peaceful retreat in the heart of San Miguel. Perfect for a couple or a solo traveler.

The service was great. Amenities were thoughtful, such as the cell phone, suggestions on restaurants, the basket of goodies upon our arrival. The cleanliness and simplicity of the place. We enjoyed the view from the terraza as well as the ambiance of the whole place. Read more

"Lean design - a quiet and lovely refuge in beautiful San Miguel."

My wife and I stayed here for two weeks and loved the minimal design of the place and its convenient location. We had only to walk a few blocks to find great food and the Jardin at the town's center. Every morning we made coffee in the modern kitchen with its polished concrete counter and casement window letting in the sunlight. Then up to the rooftop to relax before the day's sightseeing. The bed is very comfortable and the area is quiet and charming. We will be coming back to the Lofts for sure. Read more
Thank you Allen. You were a wonderful guest and we appreciate your review very much! Glad that you like the space and we will see you again next year! Thank you again. Lisa
"An amazing trip"

A wonderful experience, a beautiful, perfectly located spot for travelers.
Great design, all needs are considered, gorgeous poured concrete kitchen allows you to have meals at the loft and makes it perfect for short or long term stays.
Rooftop area with great views, perfect spot to watch sunset, or for morning coffee.
Great restaurants nearby, close to Centro, but quiet.
Highly recommended, already planning our return trip.
Lisa is a pleasure and has created a peaceful retreat. Read more
Thank you for your review Ariane. You were the perfect guest and we would love to have you back soon! All the best to you, Lisa

"A great little space in the heart of San Miguel"

This simple one bedroom apt was a great landing pad each night after walking and touring around this wonderful Mexican Town and region. It is Central, near shops, cafes and really close to everything. It has all the basic modern amenities while still feeling like an authentic, local experience.
The price is great and Lisa who rented it to me was great.
I would return!

I am very glad I stayed here during my visit to San Miguel de allende this past November. The apartment is clean and simple, and the location is hard to beat, just blocks from the central plaza and within easy walking distance of everything else. The best part of my experience was dealing with the owner, who was accomodating and generous from start to finish. Highly recommended.
