Walt was very attentive to our very few questions. The internet worked well 99% of the time. Maru, our "maid", was wonderful. The location to downtown was great - easy, relatively...

Many thanks, Jim & Linda. Hope to see you back in SMA. Walt

Not only are we renting the house next winter, but we also hope to return every year!

We rented Walt's place for the whole month and found everything super comfortable and easy - I can't imagine Casa Francisco ever getting less than a 5 star rating, which is honestly how I picked it in the first place. That, and the fact that it is perfectly located. We had everything we needed for the month. Never ran out...

Many thanks, Lix & Frank! Hope to have you back in SMA in the future. Walt

About the neighbourhood
The neighborhood is within the perimeter of the historic Centro area of San Miguel and among houses inhabited by wonderful full-time residents, about 25% of which are non-native expats.

Buses DO NOT travel on our street, which is a benefit in terms of lower noise levels. The house does front the street, so a bit of car traffic could be heard in the late evening, but I have had very few complaints about it from guests.
Getting around
Taxis to get around town are quite inexpensive (about MN40/trip within the town center). Taxis could also be hired for short excursions outside of town. Shuttles to/from the airport or to other cities could be contracted at reasonable prices with Bajio Go (check Google for website link, from which reservations could be made).
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Leon (BJX): 105.0 km

Activities nearby
There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Nearest Beach: 520.0 km.
