“You'll Be Glad You Chose Casa de las Ventanas!”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in March 2014

For those who are contemplating travel with family or friends—or who seek an inspiring "retreat" with like-minded peeps or professional colleagues—Casa de las Ventanas is a dream come true.
Kate Joyce, owner and host extraordinaire, knows every inch of vibrant San Miguel de Allende and its rich history. Her connections to local artisans, shopkeepers, entrepreneurs, and, well, colorful characters—built over the course of more than two decades—inform and enrich every guest's stay and experience. In addition, Kate Joyce's extraordinary sense of design and painstaking attention to detail illuminate all aspects of her comfortable and colorful casa. Good spirits and energy abound throughout, and even die-hard sticks-in-the mud may be tempted to kick off their shoes to sing and dance in her home. Even so, the deck andgenerous living-and-dining space are just right for quieter, more reflective moments in the warmth of the sun or the glow of the moon. Each of the five bedrooms is uniquely and cozily appointed—you're all but guaranteed to sleep (and dream) well. Your stay at Casa de las Ventanas is likely to be as soulful as it is energizing.
Casa de las Ventanas is well situated—it's close to great shops, restaurants, and landmarks but removed from the hubbub of tourists. Kate Joyce will happily guide you to can't-miss stops in town, and she will also help you make arrangements for longer excursions to other points of interest nearby.
San Miguel de Allende lives up to its reputation as a travel destination, but a stay at Casa de las Ventanas in Kate Joyce's good care and company may turn out to be the very thing that makes you want to return again and again. The bottom line? The reasonable cost for booking Casa de las Ventanas is the icing on the proverbial cake of a delicious detour to San Miguel de Allende!

Robin,,,You are such a good writer I want to book into my own house,,LOL.
thank you for the terrific review and I look forward to your return to SMA one day, As you mentioned, the house is a good place for friends or colleagues to book. I have consciously designed the house for both privacy ,,,,with each bedroom having its own bathroom, and togetherness in the large living room, open kitchen and long 9 foot table for meals...The roof deck is a wonderful spot to start the day with a cup of coffee or some yoga! All the best to you Robin.

“Beautiful, warm home perfect for a Yoga or Writing Group”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in April 2015

I have stayed with five different yoga groups I took to Kate Joyce's warm and welcoming Casa de Las Ventanas. As the name implies the house if full of light and air and mountain breezes. The rooftop patio has a panoramic view of the colorful colonial city of San Miguel de Allende, a spot that has drawn visual artists and photographers with the soft golden glow of the light and the openness of its people. Kate is a gracious and charming hostess, with a keen sense of design, and a great feel for entertaining. We always have welcoming dinners with neighbors, daily yoga on the rooftop and yummy breakfasts in the open kitchen and living room. It's ten minute walk from the many shops and galleries of Aurora Fabrica, and another ten beyond that to the heart of this paradise. With five bedrooms and five bathrooms, the house can easily accommodate ten people if some are couples. I will definitely be bring a sixth group back there in 2017 -- assuming there's a vacancy, then!

“Casa Los Ventanas feels like Home”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in February 2016

When in San Miguel de Allende I go back and back to the same place, Casa los Ventanas is a wonderful place where you feel at home,. The friendly hostess always ready to help and see you feel at ease. The Casa is located in a quiet street 15 - 20 min.walk from the center where all the attraction is and where we found nice restaurants, art galleries , and some boutiques ..
I am going back in November for the Day of the Dead.

“Casa de Las Ventanas”
Reviewed 15 July 2016 for a stay in October 2015

This house is a great place to stay. Easy walking distance to great restaurants, coffee houses, art galleries and all.things interesting in San Miguel. My boyfriend and I stayed there last October for a week while on a trip we did to San Miguel and Oaxaca. Kate is a great host, the place is decorated very hip and cool. We had a spacious bedroom and ensuite bathroom that was very cozy and comfortable. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view of downtown San Miguel and the Parroquia, the cathedral on the town square, which is known as the Jardin.
San Miguel is a super cool smaller Mexican colonial town. I hope we can return again to stay with Kate and enjoy San Miguel once again.

“Big birthday celebration”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I have stayed at this house a few times with groups of friends, designers from San Diego, friends from New Zealand and this time with family and friends for a birthday celebration.
Kate is a wonderful host, she organized a dinner at home with her terrific cook, the house is very comfortable for large groups, each bedroom has it's own bathroom and the great room upstairs is fabulous for parties or just to sit and read and enjoy the view. There is also a roof deck with lovely views.
It is a bit of a walk to the center of town, about 10-15 minutes, but close to Fabrica Aurora (5mins away) where there are art galleries and restaurants. Taxis are readily available and very inexpensive. You are living in an authentic Mexican neighborhood, not surrounded by tourists and I would go back again in a heartbeat.

Liked best: Feeling like we were living in the town, great size house for big groups and to take tours from
Liked least: The cobble streets are a challenge at first, good shoes required, stairs at the house so need to be fit.

Thanks Pam. I too enjoy having a casa out of the very busy Centro area of SMA. The CASA is in a quiet area but still close to the Jardin. There is also a bus which stops at the corner in front of my house which takes one to the centro, but the walk is pleasant with lots of little shops and restaurants to peak into along the way! Look forward to your return to SMA Pam. Muchas Gracious for your review. Kate
