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 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
Local phone line
Free USA line to phone anywhere in the US.

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.
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....
Fue espectacular la estadía en la casa de Elizabeth! El lugar es precioso y su atención impecable. Una gran anfitriona!!! Recomiendo una y mil veces este hospedaje.
I can't say enough good things about this location. We picked Casita Ruby based on its great reviews and beautiful pictures. It did not disappoint! The views are incredible and we enjoyed laying out in the sun after mornings of exploring San Miguel de Allende. There are great michelada places around the corner! The space was perfect - it was clean, well maintained, and it felt like a home.
Lupe checked us in and she was wonderful! Super friendly and welcoming. Bebe was great with communication and helpful in every way. She had great recommendations for everything from a shuttle company to restaurants.
I will say that view comes at a cost - you are located up by the mirador and it's a hike to get back up from the city center. It's not a long hike, but it is a steep one! We enjoyed the workout and there is always the option of taking a taxi (they're easy to find). I would recommend this location to anyone and would love to stay here again!
This was by far the best vacation we ever had! San Miguel de Allende is a magical city and Casita Ruby is exactly what you see in the pictures. The view was simply spectacular and even better than we expected. My husband and I are very thankful to Bebe for making sure everything was ready for our arrival and Lupe who greeted us at the house.
La Casita Ruby es el paraiso. Todo estuvo mas que bien . Mi marido y yo estamos muy agradecidos por la atencion de Lupe y Bebe.
Fue maravilloso estar en casita Ruby! La vista es la mejor de San Miguel. Encantada de estar alejada del bullicio del centro, ir y venir en taxi bastante barato y vale la pena para dormir tranquila y disfrutar la terraza. Definitivamente un lugar para regresar, limpio, cómodo y bien (website hidden) gracias
We had a really great stay at Casita Opal (had originally booked Ruby but we switched to Opal due to a double booking and are glad that we did!). The host was incredibly accommodating prior to our arrival. The casita was incredibly clean and well maintained with great furniture and lush landscaping. The view was incredible, as it is quite elevated above the town. The location makes for a somewhat difficult walk during the heat of the day, but taxis are very inexpensive. We loved the massive outdoor loggia, and sat most days drinking coffee and reading... definitely the best aspect of the space. We weren't aware that the street is is on is a very busy street, and Mexican buses are incredibly loud, so it wasn't always 100% tranquil, but it was worth both the hike up the hill and dealing with the noisy street.
Casita Ruby in SMA was wonderful, Elizabeth our host was always available to give us recommendations and answer our questions. Ruby had everything we needed and more, a breathtaking view of the city, a great neighborhood far enough away from the noise of the jardin, and a lovely walk down the hill to central SMA. The room was very comfortable with a nice HD tv with Netflix and relaxing chairs out on the balcony. Loved the open space of ruby along with all the plants and lighting accents. My wife is 32weeks expecting and says our stay at Ruby was wonderful, she's already planning our return trip. Thanks for a great Babymoon.

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.
