    We loved our stay and it was home away from home. Janis was wonderful anwering all my questions. She made sure we were settled and gave us a short explanation of what to expect during our visit in San Miguel. We will definitely return! Another thing I like to mention is that the view from her rooftop is beautiful!

    Very much enjoyed our 5 day stay at Casita Aurora. Nice to have a separate bedroom with a comfortable bed and lots of storage. Coffee in the morning on the little deck and wine on the rooftop was perfect. Nice views. Kitchen was well equipped for those who want to cook. We walked everywhere from there morning, noon and night. Safe neighbourhood. Also did day trip to Guanajanto. Taxi to the bus station came by in minutes. We would recommend Casita Aurora to anyone who asks.

    I loved everything about this place! Janis is terrific re: rapid communication and is available for any and all questions (and many thanks for the local papers so I knew what was being offered – there’s *so much* going on in this lovely city!). The apartment is as depicted and so much more. I was welcomed with fresh flowers and lovely wine (which I enjoyed on the rooftop terrace overlooking the garden, and mountains beyond), as well as coffee, tea, milk, sugar and fruit to get me started. Not a thing was missing in the kitchen, bedroom or bath, and the colours and decor were a delight. And the location is absolutely superb! Minutes to La Fabrica in one direction, markets and restaurants in the other, 10 minute flat walk to El Jardin and such, bus stop across the street if you don’t want to walk or taxi to the terrific Saturday organic market (not to be missed!), and so much more. And yet the street is quiet (but not secluded, so felt really safe) in the evening. And the gym below is fabulous – as is Joe who also works there during the week – so while I enjoyed my privacy, I also enjoyed Janis’ and Joe’s company when I sought it. Janis’ apartment was a terrific find, and she was wonderfully flexible re check in and out. No doubt others will recognize and enjoy it as much as I, so I hope it will be available when I return to this special city. Highly recommended!Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+.

    Review #21028546 “Centro, Light-Filled, Airy Apartment Location, Location, Location, 8 min to town”

    Great location! Lots of light, bright colors and outdoor space!

    This location was absolutely perfect for me, as it was close to the laundry, small shops, La Conexion, and my spanish class. Loved being able to quickly walk to Via Organica for groceries or dinner, as well as Gil’s market. I felt very safe at all times! I loved the bright colors of the apartment, the large terrace with so many flowers and cacti,all very well-maintained, the lawn behind the terrace, with birds coming and going throughout the day. There was more sun and daylight coming through the windows than in many apartments in Centro. I hardly knew I had neighbors, they were so quiet, and only a few. Janis was very responsive to anything I needed, such as light bulbs, a kitchen appliance part. The linens were of a good quality. The bed was very comfortable, with plenty of storage space in the bedroom. Everything was there for the small amount of cooking I did. I appreciated use of a landline and a Vonage phone line, as well. The space was quick to heat, when needed, and refreshingly cooler in warmer weather. The rooftop terrace was delightful! I would return in a heartbeat!

    We had a wonderful stay in San Miguel de Allende at Janis’ adorable Casita Aurora. Janis met us when we arrived and showed us around her place. She was very helpful and even suggested things to do and places to eat. The casita is a lot bigger than it looks on the website. There is a huge garden and patio as well as a lovely rooftop terrace with a swing. We did yoga up there one evening. Her place is spotless and decorated with a Mexican theme. Everything worked great and we even used the gas stove to cook while we were there. There is no air conditioning, but the weather was so nice, and we never needed it. It was great to keep the windows open at night. She has a fan, hair dryer, coffee maker, and iron and all the amenities that you will need. Her place felt very safe and the walk into town is only about 10 minutes. The casita is located right between the Artisan Mercado and the Fabrica Aurora. Great location! I recommend staying here highly.”

    Cozy, charming, and clean. Everything one person would want to have for a vacation rental. Decorated with a few lovely Mexican pieces and a bed that is the best. I slept very well. There are lovely places to sit outside, a fine Health restaurant and market across the street. On my next visit, I plan to spend 4 months with my two small doggies. Can hardly wait to return. Oh, I forgot the owner, Janis has a super fun personality and is totally eager to please you. Have a wonderful time in SMA. Stayed 4 months, loved it.

    Janis was wonderful to work with from the start – very responsive and helpful. The casita is very clean and comfortable, and super convenient to the center (10 minute walk) and a 5 minute walk from La Fabrica Aurora – plan to spend lots of hours exploring this gem! Thank you for a great time Janis!

    Dear Julie, Thank you so much for your review. Loved having you both, come back soon, Janis

    We enjoyed 4 days in this little hideaway. The casita is barely outside of the centro historico yet close enough to walk off breakfast and be in the hub of it all in 10 minutes! The casita has anything and everything you may require for a comfortable stay. As Janis was out of town, we were greeted by her two employees Juan and his wife Veronica who explained all we needed to know about the casita. Many thanks to them both. Don’t forget to take your glass of wine to the rooftop at the end of the day for a fab view serenaded by the ubiquitous Mexican roosters. Many thanks Janis for sharing this beautiful space. Great breakfast spots – Buen Dia on Pueblito , Via Organica , and Flo’s all within a couple of blocks.Recommended for: Sightseeing, Tourists without a Car, Romantic Getaway.

    This is a fabulous place to stay! The neighborhood is easily accessible to anything you could want or need in walking distance, and I always felt safe, day or night. The casita is extremely clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Janis is a terrific host–very personable, helpful, and generous. Great value…. couldn’t have asked for more! ”Recommended for: Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Age 55+.

    Casita Aurora is a perfectly located, cozy, welcoming, light filled, well appointed, one bedroom vacation rental. Its charming and comfortable bedroom has ample closets and a closeup view of a mulberry tree growing against the window. I was delighted, as during the length of my stay, it came into full bloom and became the ongoing resting place to a bevy of finches enjoying its lovely canopy of leaves. The Casita has all the equipment and supplies you need to feel at home, a relaxing patio and roof terrace and is a short walk to restaurants, cafes and shopping. The proprietress, Janis McDonald goes out of her way to assure that your stay is enjoyable
