We had a terrific stay at Casa Bella! Everything truly exceeded our expectations. I like to think that I am an organized and experienced traveler but the owner provided me with great resources to plan every aspect of the trip. He made it his mission to ensure that everything from our arrival to our last night in San Miguel was special. His recommendations of restaurants, drivers, and tours are spot on. Follow his advice and you will have a great trip. The house and gardens look beautiful in the pictures, but they are even more beautiful in person. We have rented many vacation homes and none have ever come close to providing the kitchen provisions at Casa Bella! We loved the neighborhood. It is an easy uphill walk to El Jardin, which means it is an even easier walk home. I loved the pedestrian-only short cut to the Instituto. Cabs were plentiful but we rarely hailed one because we enjoyed the walk. The street where the house is located is quiet. The neighbors are a nice mix of helpful expats and friendly Mexicans. Mari the house keeper spoiled us. She encouraged our rudimentary Spanish, cleaned up our breakfast dishes and kept the house and garden spotless. This home is beautiful and the host is wonderful. You will have a magical stay at Casa Bella.
