We found three 'Jewels' nestled in the hillside overlooking San Miguel, above the hustle & bustle but still in Historic Centro. In fact, just next door to the million dollar estate of Pedro Vargas and across the street from the former home of 'Cantiflas', Mexico's favorite comedian/actor of the past. Just a few doors from El Mirador, you needn't come up just for a view of the city, you will have that view from the Jewels, all day, every day.
Just blocks from the Jardin & directly above Juarez Park. From the moment you enter the entry way into the 'Jewels of San Miguel', you are transported from the colorful streets of San Miguel through the manicured garden - lush with evergreens, flowers and a trickling fountain...all sheltered by an overhanging 100+ year old Mesquite tree with the 'Jewel' pendant hanging over the central courtyard. The gardens and fountains are beautifully illuminated at night providing the 'setting' if you will, for each 'jewel'.
You can see all three Casitas by going to our website (see link or type in Jewels of San Miguel in your search engine) as each of them is so different but all share in being exceptional even for San Miguel.
Entering the stunning Casita TOPAZ, you enter a different world - not that of Colonial Mexico, as you might expect, but rather the beauty of Morocco.
This spacious, Moroccan-inspired one (Queen) bedroom retreat, (with kitchenette) has colorful interiors, high ceilings, with windows and skylights that bathe the apartment with lots of natural sunlight. Enjoy evening cocktails on the private terrace while watching the churches illuminate at dusk. On those rare chilly nights, light the beautiful (hand carved) fireplace for those cozy, romantic evenings at home.
The integrity and elegant design of this gorgeous gem is unquestionable: It includes floor-to-ceiling glass windows, warm/soft lighting, stone floors, Talavera tile, hand carved columns and several niches displaying fine art/sculptures.
Uncompromising attention to detail was given to this majestic property by the previous owner (one of San Miguel's finest architects). Using only the finest materials, master artisans have skillfully crafted your 'home away from home.'
Rarely will you find an upscale casita in the Centro that offers this level of style and sensual sophistication, combined with its convenient location and magnificent vistas of Historic San Miguel.

About Elizabeth Gordon
We are three 'sweatbirds' from Louisiana who simply love San Miguel. We teamed together and purchased the Jewels as we were smitten the moment we saw it and knew it was special, even for San Miguel...
Elizabeth Gordon purchased this bungalow in 2013
Why Elizabeth Gordon chose San Miguel de Allende
As a rule, Centro's Colonial architecture makes me feel 'boxed in' and so often in San Miguel, the view is for the main house or is marred by electrical wires or excessive noise. When we found the Jewels, it has a natural setting, feels incredibly open and airy and is a quiet refuge from the activities down below but is just minutes away by walking or transportation.
What makes this bungalow unique
It's unique due to all the touches it has, we don't furnish it with 'rental' type goods, we try to have the best quality furnishings yet, we're not asking 4 star prices.
We try to give added value to the guest's overall experience yet, not burden them with excessive fees and hidden costs. This is why we have free WIFI, Cable, long distance phone service to the US and Canada, and usage of our Netflix account. We furnish purified bottled water and housekeeping once a week with free light laundry service if you care for it.
We feel you get the value for your money at the Jewels and on top of that, you get unmatched beauty in your surroundings.

Our time in the beautiful Casita Topaz was magical!! Elizabeth made it possible for us to feel at home in the most beautiful surroundings. It would be impossible to put into words the magic and peace we felt during our stay. We shall always treasure our time there and yes, we will return again and again to the magic of San Miguel De Allende and to the peace we found in Casita Topaz. So much creativity took place during our time there for we were inspired to paint, draw, write and both Jody and I are ever so grateful we found this wonderful home away from home. Thank you Bebe!!
