From the moment you enter the 'Jewels' through the entry way, 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. The gardens and fountains are beautifully illuminated at night! This gem was designed and built with wonderful architectural details. The craftsmanship, by talented Mexican artisans, is unquestionably brilliant. Casita Opal is a gracious apartment that integrates modern style with thoughtful artistic design.

The gardens and fountains are beautifully illuminated at night! This gem was designed and built with wonderful architectural details. The craftsmanship, by talented Mexican artisans, is unquestionably brilliant. Casita Opal is a gracious apartment that integrates modern style with thoughtful artistic design. Within these walls you will be enchanted by the serene beauty and comfort of this apartment. The interior of Casita Opal features a neutral color palette, enlivened by splashes of color in the carefully chosen furnishings, vintage rugs, accessories, sculptures and folk art. The spacious (Queen) bedroom with a kitchenette (fridge, coffee maker) and large fireplace is perfect for lounging with cocktails in the evening. The glass doors lead from your bedroom into your secluded courtyard with a “crying wall fountain.” Beautiful dreams are inevitable while Casita Opal envelopes you in this peaceful atmosphere! The fully equipped kitchen in Casita Opal is spacious and well equipped. (See photo) The ground-floor exterior patio (adjacent to the living area), brings ample sunlight into the Casita, but its huge Mesquite tree also offers shade from the mid-day sun. The natural warmth of the sun keep interior temperatures quite pleasant, even in winter. The fireplace keeps the home toasty on those cooler mornings and evenings. As temperatures rise in late winter and spring, the thick walls and courtyard keep the Casita cool and comfortable. Your (private) rooftop loggia is a tree-top perch with a spectacular view of the Historic Centro. Relax on the loggia to the sound of the church bells tolling and splashing fountains, while watching hummingbirds flit from flower to flower. Its a wonderful place to sunbathe, read a good book or sip a Margarita in the evening while admiring the sunset in the perfect climate. An added feature of the rooftop loggia is the newly built wet-bar with refrigerator. In the land of vast blue skies and forever reaching sunsets, Casita Opal is a perfect balance of comfort and elegance that defines a true retreat. NOTE: If you love to cook, then Casita OPAL would be the best option with its fully equipped kitchen. ----------------------------------------------- These upscale Casitas are all in mint condition and provide all the comforts of home: Wi-Fi Internet access, 42' Flat screen/Cable TV, Blu-Ray DVD system, “Free” calls to the U.S. and Canada, a spacious terrace, stone floors, antiques, ample work space (office desk), luxury bath/bed linens, down pillows/comforter, an iPod docking station to enjoy your favorite music, a hair dryer, (two) guests bathrobes, decorative sculptures by local artisans, along with other desired amenities required by today’s sophisticated traveler. FAMILY REUNIONS and LARGE GROUPS: For large family vacations or reunions the Jewels (Topaz, Ruby and Opal) may be rented together or separately. HOUSEKEEPER and GARDNER: The Gardener and Housekeeper cleans each Casita once a week and will do light laundry along with your bed linensMore

Everything advertised on Trip Advisor was accurate. The Casita is spacious, charming, well-appointed and well-serviced. The location is accomodating to Centro, affording a lovely walk down the hill to activities and restaurants. Going the other way by SM's inexpensive taxis, one finds a shopping center...More

About the neighborhood
Tourists by the bus loads come to El Mirador, San Miguel's lookout spot, to take in the view of the city. Just one estate down, you will find the Jewels of San Miguel, with the same views day and night from the casitas and Loggia. Our views make our location worth a million dollars, at least to us they do, and to most of our guests. No need to know Spanish when giving directions, just say 'El Mirador' and everyone knows where you're staying. Our location is quiet, set above all of the hustle and bustle of the center of town, you have space and air to breathe and combine fun and excitement with rest and relaxation when you stay with us, down time is really down time, sit out on the terraces and sip a glass of wine and watch the birds do their afternoon show just in front of the terraces...
