COMMENTS FROM THE INNKEEPERS
Steve (aka Rocky) & Gwen
Prior to acquiring Las Terrazas San Miguel, Gwen and I were guests of Las Terrazas and fell in love with the city, the culture and the safety of San Miguel. We enjoyed the privacy, comfort and location of Las Terrazas and decided we would love to continue our lives living in San Miguel de Allende.
We have been so delighted and rewarded by what many people have said about Las Terrazas and staff, and felt we wanted to share their comments. Please don't get the impression that we are ever-present in the lives of our guests. On the contrary, it is our intent to give every guest all the privacy they wish.
What People Have Said About Las Terrazas San Miguel Over the Years
We want to thank you for such a wonderful experience here at Las Terrazas. It has been better than we could ever have imagined. Not only is everything gorgeous, but you go "beyond the call of duty." I only wish you weren't so popular!! Anyway, thanks again and we will see you back here at Las Terrazas, soon.

Las Terrazas is a fantastically beautiful and comfortable home away from home in San Miguel. The casitas are lovely, spacious and private. Our place provided an island of peace after a great day of exploring this wonderful city. While security really is not an issue in San Miguel, you feel even more comfortable in this walled compound. Don't miss this place. You will want to come back.
The Casita Colibri is a "sweet" place. Thanks so much for sharing with me along with the rest of Las Terrazas. You have such an outstanding property in a fascinating city. It is fun (and good exercise) walking up and down the streets of San Miguel. You never really know what is around the next corner. I greatly appreciate the city's efforts to historically preserve its beautiful architecture. My trip to Mineral de Pozos intrigues me and I found the landscape breathtaking. The best part of my visit to San Miguel has been the wonderful people I've met along the way, and of course staying here at Las Terrazas.
We thoroughly enjoyed Casa Colibri and our entire stay at Las Terrazas. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained, the staff friendly and their service was appreciated. The casa is perfect, the new fountain and fireplace are wonderful! We loved our flowers, wine, pastries and coffees that were waiting for us. Things we also appreciated were the purified filtration system for the water, excellent plumbing and abundance of towels (better quality than many nice hotels). The bed and linens were very comfortable. The kitchen is wonderful, you have provided everything needed. The attention to every detail did not go unnoticed! The location of Las Terrazas is perfect, the views from Casa Colibri are beautiful and much quieter than being in the Jardin. Again, thank you for a wonderful stay in Las Terrazas.

We loved our accommodations here, wonderful place with all the beautiful flowers. We really enjoyed our trip to Santa Rosa, Dolores Hildago and Guanajuato. Thank you for making all of the arrangements. San Miguel is a wonderful place, the people are extremely friendly and helpful. Thanks again for all your help and a wonderful time.
Cliff and Pam Del Rio
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You helped make our first visit to San Miguel so wonderful. From fresh cut flowers, to the bottle of wine to making our transportation arrangements, you were so gracious. You have a lovely home and we look forward to seeing you in the future.
What can we say? An amazing and beautiful “home” run by equally amazing hosts. A safe, convenient and quiet “oasis” to call our own (for a week, anyway). We are already planning our return and will think of no other place to stay. San Miguel has stolen our hearts, thanks in large part to Las Terrazas.

We had a wonderful visit, thoroughly enjoying this lovely space, especially mid-late afternoon in a cool casa when it was hot outside. With your orientation we found some terrific restaurants and also ate well here in our casa! We made lots of excursions and definitely recommend both Guanajuato and the Botanical Garden. Many thanks! Las Terrazas was better than expected. You have created a wonderful space and you clearly take pride being attentive hosts. We will certainly recommend Las Terrazas to others and hope to return in the future.

Las Terrazas and Casa Mariposa are food for the soul…artistic, adrift with beauty, elegance and comfort. Thank you for making our stay one to always cherish. Your “labor of love” shows in all you have done to create this oasis. It is not just your homes you’ve created. It is immersed with both of you..your generosity of spirit, kindness and humor were the essence of our stay.

You walk into the entrance courtyard and are immediately surrounded by a lovingly tended garden with a softly babbling fountain on one of the terraces. But wait, it gets even better! The casa we rented (Casa Grillo) carried forward the same loving attention to detail. The décor of the house, the flowers on the table, the wine that greets the thirsty traveler, coffee and muffins for in the morning, the local Gringo newspaper. Ah, perfect, you are home… The location is great as the casas are just a short downhill walk to Centro and with the map and guidebook that was thoughtfully provided by our hosts, it is easy to find your way to the many places of interest. Need a recommendation on a place to eat? Need to find a tour guide? Las Terrazas staff is very happy to accommodate!
Thank you! I cannot think of a better place to stay while visiting San Miguel. I know that I will definitely be back!
Our first superlative has to be unforgettable! Las Terrazas is a place where memories are made…pictures that never leave your mind. From the evening breezes on the terrace to the beautiful vistas at first sunlight, we will treasure every moment of our stay.
Mark and Wendy
Ron and I both enjoyed our stay tremendously. I will be happy to recommend your casas to my friends. I'll make sure they're worthy customers!
Thank you again for creating such a heavenly place--all our friends have been waxing poetic over the pictures of the beautiful flowers and the Architectural Digest shots I got of Anne in her elegant casa. I'm sure you'll be seeing us again.
Fondly, Ellie J.
We want to thank you for a wonderful experience at Las Terrazas in San Miguel that started long before we arrived. Your advice and help on arrangements for getting there made it all so easy and pleasant. We were overwhelmed with the setting--comfortable and carefully selected furnishings, abundant flowers, creative touches everywhere. It was so pleasant that we were reluctant every day to leave and explore San Miguel, even though we were just a short walk from the center of town. We will always remember the hospitality that continued throughout our visit. We felt like we were in a lovely home. We plan to return as soon as possible.
We decided to escape the cold and rain of November in Canada, and hide out in San Miguel for the month. After thoroughly searching the internet, we settled on Casa Mariposa at Las Terrazas San Miguel. The pictures and description of the site looked to be exactly what we needed.
We were quite surprised upon our arrival, as Casa Mariposa is, believe it or not, nicer than what was pictured on the internet site. It is a completely equipped oasis minutes from the center of San Miguel's attractions. Its serene atmosphere, fabulous terrace and in fact the entire complex, made us feel at ease.
We felt totally secure and at home immediately, (we were treated like old friends by the staff). Las Terrazas proved to be the ideal base for exploring and appreciating the culture, the texture and the many activities of San Miguel and its friendly, welcoming residents.
The owners and staff could not have been kinder or more helpful.

I'm already missing the church bells, warm breezes and friendly smiles of San Miguel.
Thanks again for all your generous hospitality. Las Terrazas provided the perfect place for me to feel at home while exploring both my inner world, and my outer world of your wonderful town of San Miguel de Allende.
Just a note to express our appreciation for your helping to make our two weeks in San Miguel as memorable as they were. Of course, Casa Mariposa was everything we could have hoped for. And More. Thanks also for your most cordial hospitality on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve, as well as for your help in recommending and making arrangements for side trips to Pozos and Michoacan (the Mariposa Sanctuary). As you know, this was our second trip to San Miguel. Our third will most certainly be as your guests.
Leonore and Michael
Thank you once again for being a gracious host and making our stay in San Miguel even more special. Joe and I loved the town and the people, but I know our experience was greatly enhanced by your hospitality and being a part of our own little compound.
Amy and Joe
We had a grand time in San Miguel. Our Casa felt like home. Thanks for all.

One Family's Favorites:
Karen’s Favorites: Every recommendation you gave us was wonderful, from the tours, to the restaurants, to the shopping, we could not have had a better San Miguel experience. Las Terrazas felt like our home away from home!
Savannah ’s Favorites: I loved my room! I call it the “Beach Room”!!
Mike’s Favorites: We arrived “as guests” and feel like we’re leaving “as family.”
You saved me from having to buy a second home here! Many thanks for the warm hospitality. We will be back!
This was my second visit to SMA and my first stay at Las Terrazas de San Miguel. I will never stay anywhere else again! You are treated like family from the moment you are greeted until you depart. The premises are beautiful, meticulously kept, breakfast is delicious, the casitas are heartwarming. AND the sunset view from the Buena Vista Terrace is an AMAZING way to end (or start) your evening.
Rocky and his wife are the the BEST hosts. They are there for you every step of the way to guide and assist you throughout your visit. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Las Terrazas. It is hands down the BEST place to stay in SMA during your stay.

Las Terrazas was everything I hoped it would be and more. Every apartment on the property is beautiful and the sunsets on the rooftop looking down at the city were downright magical. I felt so at peace here. And best of all are Rocky and Gwen, the couple who oversee the property -- they were so kind, thoughtful and fun. My friend and I had a blast hanging out with them on the roof. They feel like new friends who I can't wait to see again. San Miguel is one of the most breathtaking places I've ever traveled to and I will definitely be staying here again when I do. Other things of note: each apartment has its own internet router, so the wifi is pretty good. Each apartment has cable TV with US channels as well, which was welcome. Because the property is located up the hill and a few blocks away from the town square, I slept like a rock on the super-comfy bed. And Gwen's breakfasts each day were delicious and filling. Just do yourself a favor and stay here. I doubt you'll regret it.

Wonderful Stay, Magical Place, Charming Owners
My husband and I stayed at Las Terrazas for a long weekend and had the best time. The owners Rocky and Gwen are incredibly kind and accommodating. The space itself is rich with history and extremely cozy and quiet. Centrally located, but tucked away from the noise of Centro, you can walk everywhere. I would absolutely recommend and return!
