The outdoors comes in through floor to ceiling windows that fill the spaces with light and give views of the lush gardens. Terraces, living room, TV room, bedrooms with queen beds, the location in a gated community, private, secure, comfortable and helpful hosts that are fluent in Spanish and English as well as very basic French ensure that you enjoy your stay in our lovely city.

The space

Local folk art brightens the interior and the terraces are furnished for outdoor living. The kitchen is more than adequate for cooking a meal if you wish, and whatever it lacks you can borrow from our own kitchen.
The curtains provide privacy, shade and insulation, or can be opened for light, a better view or to let the warming rays of the sun into the apartment.
With the exception of a few antique pieces, all of the furniture is new and guests remark that it is comfortable, especially the beds. There are plenty of towels and a solar hot water supply that never fails, but because San Miguel is short of water, so please do not overdo your showers. However water from showers, washers and sinks is used to irrigate the garden no water is actually wasted.

Guest access

Guests have access to the garden where there are benches where they can sit and watch the birds in the aviary or the fish in their pond. The terrace is just outside the door, convenient to the kitchen if one is tempted by al fresco dining. The common area of the condos is paved and a because there is no traffic, is a safe place for children to play. There is plenty of secure parking there too and the gates are closed at night for an extra layer of protection

Interaction with guests

Of course we always greet arrivals and wish a safe journey to those departing. For those who want to chat, need help or who want to learn more about San Miguel we are always available but otherwise we leave guests to relax without interruption.

Breakfast fixing are available for those who do not want to eat out and also we offer another option. By previous arrangement the hosts will prepare and serve an outstanding homemade breakfast. A few of our specialties are: Swedish waffles with whipped cream and fresh fruit, eggs Benedict prepared with our own hollandaise sauce, Danish, our special jam or marmalade and for those who want a sustaining breakfast there is granola made from Adele Davis's original formula served with fresh fruit and yoghurt.
Naturally authentic Mexican breakfasts are available too. Chilaquiles made according to Emma's recipe are the best! Huevos rancheros, Mexicanos or molletes with homemade salsa will start the day right. You choose.

Other things to note

We love our new house, and it is ironic that after years in the business of buying and selling antiques, after 40 plus years living in a 200 year old home, that we opted to build a modern home with no architectural frills or decorations, with floor to ceiling glass on many sides. Unlike so many places in San Miguel, especially the colonial and pseudo colonial buildings, it is warmer in winter and cooler in summer. It is never damp or stuffy because open doors and windows let the breezes in. And being below street level, many noises are filtered out or muffled.

Carmen and her helper Mati are compulsive cleaners so the apartment is always spotless.

Carmen and her husband are amazing Airbnb hosts. They were gracious enough to meet us in person even though we were arriving late. The space is very large and very nice, they left fresh fruit and pastries for us which were delicious and there is a full kitchen in the suite! It is really a awesome home. There were a couple of annoyances that were out of our hosts control. Construction on the home next door and a dog that barked several nights during our stay that lives across the street. Other than that it is the perfect spot!

Carmens house is by far the most beautiful Airbnb I have ever stayed in. No pictures can do justice to how incredible this place is and it is perfect for exploring San Miguel. Carmen is incredibly responsive and friendly and has plenty of tips for places to eat and things to see in town. If you are looking for a place in San Miguel, look no further!!

Carmen and her husband, Jerry, are the kind of people you really enjoy to drink a coffee and talk to them for hours... They are really nice people, very lovely and so kind! And the place is even better than it looks on the photos! They built an amazing home and are very pleased to share with their guests. Me and my wife really loved our stay there and we're looking forward to visit SMA again!

Carmens house is by far the most beautiful Airbnb home that we have stayed in. Carmen was there to receive us at the gate though we were a little late. She was in constant touch with me to make sure that we had the right directions. A gorgeous, clean house with all the upgrade amenities. The refrigerator was stacked with milk, bread, eggs, jam etc and some fresh fruits. An exotic garden with plants indoors and outdoors. Can't say enough about the house. Carmen and her husband were so sweet and kind, and gave us tips for all the places to visit in San Miguel. I would highly recommend La Barda Azul to all Airbnb travelers who are looking for a relaxing stay.

Carmen is such a sweet friendly host! Her place is so beautiful! As a photographer it was like a little slice of heaven with all the lights and textures and colors and the garden and greenery in the house, loved it!! It's just far enough from the town that you don't hear the commotion and craziness of the jardin but can walk there. Everything was clean and well-kept, we'll be back I'm sure!

This was my second time staying at Carmen's home. And like last time Carmen and Jerry are both incredible hosts. They are there to help you with any questions you have. Their place is absolutely lovely. It's very close to el Centro. And very beautiful and peaceful place to stay in. When we visit San Miguel again this will be our first choice. We had an awesome time.
