Interaction with Guests
I live on the property and love assisting my guests in whatever they may need. I aim to be invisibly available. I can also help you plan personal retreats.
Our location is very special. We are tucked away on a cul-de-sac. Close enough to the action yet removed just enough to provide a sense of spaciousness.
There are taxis and buses available throughout town.
Please let us know in advance when you will be arriving so that we can figure out the best way to get you the keys. Please be respectful of others in the compound. It is OK to party but do so quietly after 12 am. Please lock all doors when you leave the building. If you lose your keys please let us know immediately.
Patricia is an excellent host. My wife and I stayed at her charming Casa Dharma home for a few days during our honeymoon.
Upon entering the courtyard, we were delightfully greeted by her adorable, tail-wagging dogs. They kept us in good company throughout our stay.
The house itself is simply beautiful and very comfortable. Wait until you see the incredible doors to the master bedroom. :)
I got a little sick on the second day of our trip, I think from accidentally drinking some water. Patricia brought me medicine and soda. Exceptionally helpful and kind.
We would definitely book her home again, next time we find ourselves back in San Miguel. Thanks Patricia.
Muy bien todo , el lugar con mucha armonía y descansamos toda la familia .
Los perros muy amigables
Patricia was awesome always available and flexible to whatever we needed. Place was clean and comfortable. It was a tranquil beautiful place with great view. It was safe and good location, we parked our car there and didn't use it until we left. We walked everywhere we needed at all hours even late at night. Casa Dharma had pretty much any random thing we needed from towels, drinking water, matches to a lemon, mango or extra sheets and pillows! I slept great, the beds were amazing and the apartment was cozy. we really enjoyed our stay and will be returning.
Patricia is a great host and a lovely person. She answered all messages super fast and came by to check all was well.
Beautiful and creative property, very peaceful with trees all around. Short walk to all cafes and the centre.
Would definitely recommend!
The overall place was beautiful and I would have loved to live in the space. The host kept fruit out on the table which was lovely! Everything was clean and very nice. There were three nice dogs out in the front courtyard that we enjoyed interacting with. Would recommend this place.
This sanctuary in the woods was so lovely. The location is very convenient, just a short walk to the main square and markets, but also feels as if you have escaped to a private retreat as well. The terrace view over the valley was divine. Patricia was welcoming, communicative and easy. Her dogs were sweet and always close by making sure we were enjoying ourselves. Thank you for your hospitality!
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Dharma Retreat. San Miguel is beautiful and having a nice place to stay really helped us enjoy the experience. The house is located just a few minutes walking distance from the main square and it is very secure. The only thing that we commented to Patricia is that the bathroom could have been cleaned more before we arrived, specially the floors and we also found quite a bit of spider webs inside the house. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay and Patricia was very friendly and attentive. Thank you!
