San Miguel de Allende Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

We have THREE casitas PLEASE DISREGARD THE CALENDAR-CONTACT US FOR AVAILABILITY

PLEASE NOTE: WE HAVE 3 CASITAS WITHIN THIS PROPERTY, THE CALENDAR ONLY SHOWS AVAILABILITY FOR ONE CASITA (ANY OF THEM), PLEASE CONTACT ME VIA AN INQUIRY FOR AVAILABILITY, WE BOOK THROUGH VRBO BUT YOU CAN SEE MORE PHOTOS AND DESCRIPTIONS AT OUR WEBSITE.

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!!

An incredible view

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Jewels of San Miguel far exceeded any of our expectations! From the moment of our registration, the owner was extremely helpful - answering all of our numerous questions about the cassita, the city of San Miguel, transportation resources, restaurants and local attractions. It would have been impossible to ask for a more responsive and hospitable host! The cassita was exceptionally beautiful, clean, comfortable, convenient and has an amazing view - day and night. There was absolutely nothing negative about our experience at the Jewels, except that we had to leave! We would go back in a heart beat! We have already begun to recommend it to friends.

A REAL GEM

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit in San Miguel de Allende, my friend and I decided on staying in Topaz after looking at our options online and had no problem deciding on staying here in spite of a friend's recommendation who has a home close by to stay in Centro.

The pictures and descriptions was spot on and exceeded our expectations. The walk to Centro through narrow cobble stoned streets down hill to Centro was the most enjoyable part of our stay and we always took a cab back home for 30-40 pesos.

Topaz was such a relaxing setting and having a view out the beautiful arched glass doors as shown in the picture especially in the evening was a delightful bonus that we chose to stay in all but the last evening there.

Bebe, one of the owners was our contact before and during our stay in Topaz, she was very informative, helpful and accessible. Thank you Bebe, you've done a great job in providing us a comfortable stay and greatly enhanced our impression of this charming town! No kidding, the bed IS one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, including my own at home. Aloha...

Amazingly Affordable yet luxurious option!

  • 5 of 5
We recently traveled to San Miguel on a last minute scouting trip for our wedding. Most places were already booked up but a few days before, we checked back and noticed this amazing property was available. We emailed Bebe and she immediately confirmed, nice and easy! And boy did we score!

The pictures are fantastic and do it justice (at dusk). You want to spend at least one sunset in the room, it's amazing. What the pictures can't articulate is that the room is HUGE. Lots of room, everything you need, from jugs of bottled water for brushing teeth, drinking, etc.

Bebe and staff are so accomodating, checked in all the time, made sure we were set. And though locals will tell you it's not in the Centro, it's SO EASY to walk down, we did it everyday. If you like to walk (we're from walking city) you'll be more than fine. If you don't like to walk, taxis are very easy and affordable. Never had an issue.

Cannot wait to come back soon, this time with our family and rent out all three rooms. If you have a group, seems like a perfect house!

Highly recommend. House, location and owners are fantastic. Can't go wrong.

Car: not necessary

The location is just steps away from the city's tourist lookout, El Mirador, a breathtaking view that you will have from any of the Jewel's private terraces. Quiet, private yet both busses ($.35) and taxis ($2.45) pick you up just outside the street entrance door. Such an easy location to navigate the town. Stay above the fray, the noise and traffic at the Jewels of San Miguel.
