About this listing

Ruby is the crown jewel of the property, it has it all. The terrace is amazing and can be seen from anywhere in the casita, even from the tub (the bath is glassed in and extends out to the terrace). Now Ruby has a full kitchenette, even with an oven! The furnishings are comfortable and inviting. The wall facing the city view is all glass, the terrace has recliners and a table for eating out, al fresco, with a lighted umbrella for evenings. Our reviews say it all.

The space

Nestled above San Miguel, minutes from the Jardin, are three amazing "Jewels". Three very different casitas staggered on the hillside offering privacy and a town view from inside the casita, no walking up a spiral staircase with a tray of Margaritas to go and sit on an exposed rooftop. Within this Casita, Ruby, you can view the town from your BED or SOFA or from the sunken BATHTUB/SHOWER. You can sit in the living room area and watch the evening fireworks or the frolicking birds are at eye level in the afternoons from the "Jewels". These are Boutique Casitas and each has its own style, Ruby is woodsy and has the most amazing terrace, it's for people who love the "al fresco" lifestyle, love to sit and read, and dine outdoors under the stars. The glassed in, sunken tub bathroom is a luxury soak and soothes the aching muscles from sightseeing all day. These casitas are for the visitor that wants quiet serenity, a refuge from the hustle and bustle that can be San Miguel, when they return home. Our Casitas have all the modern amenities of home:
40 in. flatscreen Samsung Smart Televisions with tons of Apps as well as traditional Mexican cable
Complementary Netflix Acct for your enjoyment
DVD player
Local phone line
Free USA line to phone anywhere in the US.

Location: In Centro, above but just less than 4 blocks away away from the Jardin and Juarez Park, across the street from the home built by Actor/Comedian "Cantiflas" and next door to famed Mexican Tenor Pedro Vargas' estate.

Topaz - Kitchenette (coffee maker/sink/fridge/2 stovetop burners/microwave oven/toaster/dishes)
Ruby - Full kitchenette, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, sink, 4 burner stove top, oven & fridge. All dishes, pots & pans, etc.
Opal - Full size kitchen (stove/oven, Full size fridge, everything you need in a kitchen)

We do prefer weeky rentals, even in the high season, and try and work with our guests to insure their stay with us is a memorable experience, not just a bed for the night.

Guest access

Once inside the property and off the street, there is a central courtyard that is the heart of the property, all three casitas surround it. Each casita is its own separate space and each terrace is designated for that particular casita. What you see in the picture is what you will have, each casita is private and separate. All casitas share the front entry to the property but once in, you have separate suites.

The Jewels of San Miguel are quiet refuges, a place to get away from your busy life at home. Yet the excitement of the town of San Miguel is just blocks away. We are looking for guests that are considerate of the property and others that share the property. Guests that are mindful of the property's security so everyone can feel safe and secure. Our casitas are appointed with fine decor and accents and antique furnishings, we would like guests that respect the quality and appearance of the casitas. We only allow smoking on the terraces and only the guests which have been approved may stay in the casitas. We will consider pets on a case by case basis.
If there is a major violation of these house rules and steps must be taken to evict, then the guest forfeits their payment as the casita was taken off the market for that time period. We have been fortunate so far....

Casita Ruby and the jewels are unquiet positioned for prime views in the city. We loved the perfectly styled decor and Bebe was a gracious host. Would stay again!

Great location! Great views! Everything we needed was there. You'll definitely want to use the bathtub, what a treat after all the walking. Ten minute walk to center, rocky streets so wear good shoes for the town. Cab rides back were about 40 pesos. The Ruby room was great as was the rest of the property. Bebe was very sweet and helpful with everything we needed. Highly recommend staying here!

Thank you so much for staying at the Jewels. With the rains we've had lately, it has brought mosquitos with it, thanks for the suggestions and I'm now going to stock the casitas with citronella candles! Come back again, you're always welcome!

Wow! The place has an amazing view. We were always glad to come back to our place after walking around town. Casita Ruby was definitely the best part about our trip. I highly recommend Casita Ruby!

Amazing view, lovely design (love the paint colors, windows, bathroom), great porch (sat out there and read every day at sunset). The entryway / courtyard is also beautiful, full of plants and art. All around this place was a dream and a great value! The kitchenette is bare bones, yes, but we were happy to do meals out given all the great food in town. As others have mentioned, it is a steep walk from town, but taxis are very inexpensive, so we took taxis home after dark. Going into town, it's a 10-15 min walk to main square. Definitely take ear plugs -- the bells can be heard all over town, but this location also has two very noisy roosters nearby that started up around 4am everyday!

Response from Bebe:
I know what you mean about the roosters, they are not nearby but you can hear them! If I ever see them in person I'll be serving gumbo that night, you know I'm kidding, but as far as San Miguel is concerned, it could be worse!

These little casitas are indeed "jewels!" The location is amazing and the rooms themselves are thoughtfully and beautifully appointed. We loved every minute of our visit to San Miguel and were trying to find ways to return even before our first trip ended! Thank you!

The "Jewels of San Miguel" is a joint partnership between myself and two other very active co-owners. One owner, Beth, is retired, the second, my sister Gay, works in the Oil Industry and I work for United Airlines as a Flight Attendant. We love the Jewels and hope to spend our retirement years going back and forth from the USA and Mexico, but in the meantime, we invite you to share our lovely casitas.
