We spent a month at Glen's place, which is exactly like the photos. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are very comfortable, and the roof terrace is wonderful for breakfast, dinner under the stars, or just lounging around. We loved the local neighborhood vendors such as the tortilleria on Refugio, just three blocks away, where we bought tortillas hot off the press nearly every day. I may never buy another cold tortilla from a store - they are that good. There is also a very good fruteria on Sterling Dickerson, to the point that we pretty much stopped going to the central Mercado after the first week. We also enjoyed the walk to the historical center every day, feeling fit and healthy by the time we left. A few times we took a taxi home after a late night ($2.50 ISD), but otherwise walked everywhere, taking different routes to explore the neighborhoods. Glen is the perfect host, organized, prepared, and responsive. His house manual gives an immediate feeling of comfort that everything is going to go well, and that promise is well delivered. Maria keeps the place immaculate. I can recommend Glen's place without reservation.

This is a great place to stay especially for two couples. Glen was awesome from first contact through checkout. The house is top quality construction and tastefully decorated with Mexican art. It is the best prepared house I've stayed in and the instruction book was complete and thorough. We had everything we needed. The place looks like the photos. It is extremely clean and well appointed. Wonderful bed and bedding. We stayed for New Years with another couple. Easy walking distance to the city and part of a neighborhood. The only issue my group raised is that that the location might seem a little loud for a person who is really looking for silence all the time. You feel part of the neighborhood, in part, because you hear the neighborhood. The owner acknowledges this in the instruction book and provides earplugs which is a thoughtful touch. Highly recommend and look forward to returning.

Response from Glen:
Thanks, Amanda! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay at our house.  Several of our guests have commented that our location is very quiet at night, and we are lucky that we don't have the buses and traffic of Centro.  San Miguel is so densely populated that we sometimes hear children playing in the street, families living nearby, etc.  It's the energy that makes Mexico so wonderful!

Hospitality was faultless.

Our stay at Glen's place went better than expected. It was super convenient to have a washing machine on-site, a fully-equipped kitchen, and to be an inexpensive cab ride away from the city center. I should have known that it would be a great stay when Glen sent a multi-page manual anticipating and addressing any potential needs and questions, including recommendations for things to do in the area. Even with that, Glen was responsive when we had additional questions and concerns. My friend and I were delayed in Queretaro, but Glen was able to coordinate a later key pick-up even though he was several timezones away!

We cannot imagine a better experience! This was our first use of Airbnb, and we can only hope that future arrangements will be half as great. From the initial communication, to the discovery of a truly beautiful home, we were absolutely delighted. Glen is a wonderful host; we sent numerous questions via email, both before and during our stay, and they were always answered graciously and generously. This home is spotless, tastefully decorated, incredibly comfortable, stocked with anything one might need, and we feel as though Glen is a friend. Anyone would love staying here!

My husband and I spent a week in SMA at Glen's home and were extremely pleased. The neighborhood was fine and although not in the center of the city, we usually walked back and forth, only getting taxis when we were tired. Glen had a detailed pack of information for us from how to operate the appliances to suggestions for places to eat. He was also prompt to reply to a few questions that I had. The house is well-equipped and beautifully decorated...and the bed was a delight! We enjoyed relaxing on the terrace in the late afternoons after busy days of sightseeing.
