The Penthouse in the Balcones is easily the nicest Airbnb I've stayed at so far. My wife and our 10 month old daughter stayed for a week in July of 2017. The location is a bit out of the center, and up on the hill but it actually turns out to be perfect because you don't have to deal with any of the noise and traffic while you are treated to 180 degree views of the city and beyond. The place itself is gorgeous -lots of neat antiques and high end furnishings. We felt very special staying there! As we were staying with our young daughter it was wonderful to have a place that was super comfortable to just relax in - and with beautiful views! Andrea as a host is the BEST!! She arranged transportation to and from the airport in Leon for us, Kokis is a great driver and a nice guy. She also arranged babysitting for us one night so we could get out - Natalie is a new mother and is great with kids. Andrea even brought us some dinner the night after we arrived - which was awesome :) I'll recommend to all my friends to stay with Andrea - she's super!

The penthouse apartment was fantastic, even better than expected. It was elegant while being warm & comfortable. The views of the city were magnificent and yet an easy walk into town. The communication with Andrea was easy, friendly and efficient. We would absolutely stay there again.

Andrea met us at her home with the beautiful bouquet of lilies and a lovely bottle of wine. Such a gracious host and a stunningly beautiful apartment, not to mention the most breathtaking view of all San Miguel, truly stupendous. Andrea’s sense of design and sophistication was most evident in her attention to detail and ambiance, from roses on each of the bedside tables to candles on the balcony, it was a luxurious experience exceeding all our expectations, our hopes of sanctuary. From the steam-bath in the morning to the evening’s cozy comfort, be it the chiminea on the veranda or the grand fireplace in the spacious living room – there wasn’t a moment beyond pure relaxation. A gourmet’s kitchen, an exquisite dinging room and the perfect bed; made for a respite that won’t be forgotten – a place we so anxiously want to return. My wife and I traveled quite often in our 30 years and have stayed in some fine hotels from Paris to Tokyo, but I can say with all sincerity, this penthouse apartment is beyond comparison. An easy walk to town – downhill, and a short taxi ride home – uphill. The botanical gardens can be seen from the apartment and are just a short drive away; as is the supermarket and town’s commercial shopping center – fortunately, not seen from the apartment. From the cathedral bells at sunset, to the rooster’s crow at sunrise – we became fully immersed in the pace and essence of Mexico’s spirt and heritage. From the moment we arrived and Andrea welcomed us into her home, I could see in my wife’s eyes, and with my own, we’d found a place that was truly gasp-worthy. Thank you Andrea for such lovely memories.

The Penthouse Apartment was superb - could not be better for a couple or a single person. Breathtaking views of Mexico's most beautiful small city. Host (Andrea) went out of her way to make me welcome and help with local knowledge.

When I arrived I knew the house was going to be great. The neighborhood was really very upscale. The pictures of the house don't do it justice, it is much nicer. The view from the outside terrace was unbelievable. The penthouse, which I called it, was much bigger than I expected. Because it is such a nice area, I felt safe my entire visit. I did meet Andrea and she could not have been nicer. I will be returning to SMA in a couple of months and will stay in the penthouse again.
