Who out there knows the streets of San Miguel?

I'm looking for advice from someone who really knows the layout of San Miguel.

We've been offered a house rental at the corner of San Antonia & Guadiana.

Is it too foreign-laden? Is it (and this is vague), charming?

I'll be arriving on Monday and will give you an update next week.

thx. mikemo, I appreciate the help.

We'll be there in late July so maybe the construction will be over?

yes, the price is insanely cheap but the house really does look good in the photos...I found it via Craig's List...the Mexico City version of it.
