Why Cheryl Finnegan chose Zona Centro
Suite Tallulah is a small house in a sea of huge colonial estates in the toniest part of San Miguel de Allende. I bought the house for its charm and location, and renovated it to make it exactly the kind of place I would love to stay most on a romantic getaway.
What makes this House unique
Suite Tallulah has a magic bed for the best night´s sleep ever. You will feel like you are in dreamland, waking to San Miguel´s bright blue sky and morning sun. You can have a morning coffee on the rooftop deck and enjoy the colonial view, with quaint rooftop gardens and views of the hilly town.

Suite Tallulah is a wonderful property with a great location. Well stocked and clean...and easy to live in. Cheryl (and her team of people) were responsive, helpful and available at all times!. I would highly recommend and would stay there again should i return to San Miquel.
Thank you for choosing Suite Tallulah...and I hope to see you in San Miguel again!
Very good location and accommodations.
Excellent location for seeing SMA. It is an easy walk to the most interesting attractions. We enjoyed the rooftop lounge and the accommodations were very comfortable.
Great Central Location
We loved our visit to San Miguel de Allende. This location was perfect for walking everywhere. The accommodations were cozy and comfortable!
We're 15-year seasoned travelers to SMA so we know our way around town. Suite Tallula is well located at the corner of Recreo and Huertas. The main plaza (Jardin) is a relatively level walk of 5-minutes. Several good long-time restaurants are nearby including El Correo, El Pegaso and Panio bakery. One of the top new restaurants in SMA, Casa Nostra, is just a half block away.
The house is fine, if not high end. The rooftop is up two flights of stairs, one a narrow spiral, so that's quite a climb with a pitcher of margaritas. The kitchen is well stocked and the upstairs bath has a good strong shower. Salma the maid was dependable and efficient. We managed to communicate through google translate (and my poor Spanish). We did not ask her to cook.
This casa is a good choice for a couple who plan to spend most of their time in SMA at the Jardin, shopping and dining. The care of the plants upstairs was a bit disappointing.
Casita was a short walk to Jardin/Parroquia, Parque Juarez, restaurants, cafes and shopping. Easy to get taxis too when you want to a bit farther afield. Comfortable and clean place to stay with everything you need plus a nice rooftop terrace. Internet worked well. Double-paned windows kept out most of the noise you'd normally expect staying in Centro and street is quiet/residential. I would stay here again.
Thank you for the lovely review. Margaret. You & your husband are welcome back any time.
SMA style living
A big one bedroom house in Centro ideally situated between the Jardine and Parque that offered everything a couple migh need for an enjoyable stay in SMA. This house is close to Recreo which I consider one of the best streets in SMA. It is a short early morning walk away from the finest bakeries and coffee shops. This a prime location and a comfortable base to explore SMA.
The rooftop patio is a great place to have your first coffee and to enjoy a pre-dinner drink and enjoy the sunset. I set up a couple of hummingbird feeders during my stay and had constant entertainment every morning and evening. The patio gets hot during the day and could benefit from an umbrella although there was a covered Anders closed lounge chair.
The owner, Cheryl, was helpful with travel info from Mexico City airport and all my tedious enquires. The housekeeper accommodated our schedules and kept the place tidy and well organized.
There was some nearby construction and road work going on during our visit but it did not ruin our visit. SMA is an old city, which is part of its charm so some renovation work should be expected from time to time. Don’t let that stress you out too much, just enjoy your stay in this apartment and the city.
Perfect weekend getaway. Short flat walk to Jardin. Restaurants and bars are an easy walk.
