Casa Katalina - San Miguel de Allende
While we were in San Miguel, our friends Dan and Larry were staying at Casa Katalina. They were in a very fun and funky 2 bedroom casita that sits above Kathy Leutzinger's shop. The casita consists of a full kitchen, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a sitting room and a nice large balcony with views of the beautiful church in the town center. The space is decorated in a very fun and functional style, with great splashes of color in places that you would not expect. I believe that Kathy said the place rented for $500 a week or $1500 for the month, but you would have to check with her on those prices.
Her shop is full of one of a kind vintage Mexican art pieces, jewelry, home decor and custom made furniture. Kathy scours the Mexican countryside to find items for the shop. The shop is as eclectic as the space for rent above and worth checking out.
She is located close to the town center and within walking distance of many restaurants, galleries and other shops. The address is Jesus #26 Zona Centro 37700 San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico Tel (415) 150-0061. You can e-mail Kathy at email@example.com.
