“Cozy, charming and close to everything”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A friend and I stayed at Casa de las Divas in SMA a few weeks ago! Was greeted by the sweet housekeeper and a beautiful flower arrangement on coffee table. The casita was perfect for us, we each had our own space and found that it was very well equipped, charmingly furnished, and very cozy and cool, in spite of the temperature outside. That was a very convenient little grocery store across the narrow street that had everything we need for our daily breakfasts which we cooked in. We took advantage of the great restaurants in SMA and ate out for rest of meals

I will definitely return to this sweet casita again!

I also recommend anyone considering Casa de Las Divas to use the transportation company they kindly recommended: Angelica's Tours

“My favorite place to stay in San Miguel!”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This is my absolute favorite place to stay when I visit San Miguel. This was my third visit to 'Las Divas'. The casitas are so charming with luxuriously comfortable beds.
Lorena does a lovely job of keeping everything spotless and Melissa is a wealth of information about the area.

The location is really central to everything. There are several restaurants within a 1 to 5 minute walk outside the door. My favorite (super clean/safe) taco and ice cream stand are just on the corner and an amazing tamale and atole stand are just up the street as well. I feel super safe as a single woman with a child staying in the area. I have walked home as late at 11pm and felt safe and confident since it is right in the heart of the town.
As long as there is availability, I will continue to stay at Casa de Las Divas on all of my future visits.

“Fabulous place to stay!”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I love the Casitas at Melissa's. It's like a home away from home....beautifully furnished and everything you need is there...WIFI, TV, Kitchen supplied with what you need, comfy beds and plenty of closet space. Melissa is a gracious host and makes it so pleasant. The location is PERFECT. You can walk everywhere and it's very safe at night. It's close to all the restaurants and music in the area.
I can't wait to return. My friends loved it too! and want to come back for more charm and fun!
I respect this beautiful Casita and home away from home!

“Did someone say the customer is always wrong?”
Reviewed July 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Towels and wet washcloths not changed out for a stay of 5 days.
LIghting not conveniently accessible. Must walk across dark room to turn living room lights on.
We were erroneously blamed for breaking a DVD that we did not do. Did not find out about it until begging the question of what else decreased our refund on this web site to discover additional issues other than just a broken light bulb. An itemized receipt would have been helpful. We as clients cooked a fantastic meal from scratch and cleaned up after ourselves. Kitchen dishes cleaned, etc. Probably didn't notice the good, only the bad. We heard every
word of our raucous neighbors upstaters, but did not complain.This rental may be suitable for family reunions - i.e the owner's family.

These renters are upset that Tripadvisor accepted my receipts for the broken dvd player and tv and cable disconnection. I had provided proof with pictures. The renters were heavy alcohol drinkers and told me that the husband had fallen into a lamp and they broke the shade and bulb, my housekeeper fixed the shade, locked a bedroom door leaving a key inside requiring a locksmith to come, and broke the dvd player and disconnected the cable and television for some reason.

There is a light switch for the living room upon entrance and if they wanted new towels all they had to do was ask. No complaints were made about noise from these renters.

“Simply not a good value for the money”
Reviewed February 1, 2016 for a stay in July 2015

The strong pluses are that it is less than 3 blocks from the Jardin and 1 block from the Biblioteca. It is also just a few hundred feet to an intersection where it is easy and quick to catch a cab.
The negative and it's a big one, is that the ground floor casita is in poor condition with worn and very uncomfortable furniture. This was my 6th rental in San Miguel and it is by far the worst in terms of the condition of the unit, furniture and especially the kitchen.

The casita is a good value for a 2 bedroom 2 bath in a great location. Have not had similar complaints from many others about the furniture

“Wonderful”

We stayed at "Casa de las Divas" for 5 days and had a wonderful time here. Melissa made sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The tastefully decorated house is located in the town "centro," so it's within walking distance to all the wonderful sites that San Miguel has to offer. Our daughter learned a lot about the town and loved her time at the casita so much that she was reluctant to say goodbye to her new friend Horchata, Melissa's calico cat that came to greet us every morning!

“My new home away from home in beautiful San Miguel de Allende”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

My friend Elena found this 2 bedroom 2 bath casita and I'm so glad we jumped on it and booked this place. Why? First, it was so wonderful to have a full house to return to when staying on one city for a week. This place is located on the top floor of a two story building that houses to separate residences. SMA is a beautiful, safe little city and the location of the casita was an easy 5 minute walk to the Jardin, the central plaza. The location was quiet by SMA standards which means one could still hear church bells ringing or fireworks intermittently. You have to take into consideration that there are lots of churches in the city and fireworks are fairly common. The entry is very private and the casita itself is set well off the street in a private courtyard. We had access to the rooftop garden and were visited on and off by the resident cat, Horchata. Being animal lovers, it was great to have someone to pet and Horchata is a very sweet cat. Melissa warned us that she would visit us if our doors weren't closed, but the fresh air was wonderful and we welcomed Horchata with open arms.
Although we were told the housekeeper would clean three times a week, we found that there was tidying up done every day and I was impressed by the cleanliness of the place. The kitchen is well stocked and each bedroom has its own full bathroom. The only appliance we needed (and brought) was a small travel flat iron.
The casita is well furnished with all the comforts of home plus a beautiful floral arrangement in the living room. The only thing missing is a clock, which was good because we were on VACATION and it was great to get up whenever and not be bound by having to be anywhere at any certain time.
Melissa, the owner, was very helpful in telling us about restaurants and other places of interest and she also had a well-stocked library of books about San Miguel de Allende. I have mixed emotions about writing such a positive review because this place will only become more popular as word gets out. We met new friends who were staying in a "green" B&B, paying more for their one room plus bath than we did for our whole casita. They were very impressed with our digs and we are talking of returning and renting out both casitas next year.
