The Romance of Casita Topaz
1 of 14The Romance of Casita Topaz
Overview
Holiday Rental House -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
San Miguel de Allende, Central Mexico and Gulf Coast
San Miguel has just been named #1 best city in Mexico by Conde Naste readers!!!!

The Jewels Of San Miguel are the three Casitas making up a tri-plex located in Centro, just blocks from the Plaza Principal or Jardin, they're nestled on the hillside overlooking the city. This casita, Topaz, is truly a one-of-a-kind oasis in San Miguel. This architectural gem was designed with tranquility and privacy in mind. You will be enchanted the moment you enter this luxurious sanctuary nestled in the lush courtyard, with its cascading gardens and 100+ year old Mesquite tree. Entering 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 Queen bed casita with its large, open floor plan (765 sq. ft.), has colorful interiors, high ceilings...

After staying in B&B’s and renting houses for many years we came across THE JEWELS of SMA. This was our 4th visit to Casita Topaz. Although it is only one large room, the Casita offers the comforts of a small home. The efficiency kitchen comes...More

Reviews of "Jewels of San Miguel" were so wonderful and pictures so pretty, that we were hoping to be extremely pleased with our accommodations in San Miguel... but it was just the opposite. There is absolutely no light in the casita, except on the patio....More

Mrs. Richens is allowed her opinion on Casita Topaz and her trip in general, but at no time did she express these problems to me during her stay. Had she done so, I would have done all that I could to remedy the situation. Topaz's...More

About the neighbourhood
The Jewels are up the hill from the Jardin, but still close enough to be in Centro, roughly 4 blocks. In order to get the spectacular views we have, you must be above the city, however, we are on one of the best streets in SMA for public transportation, but because the casitas are below street level, we have none of the street noise. We have no street below us either (nor a bird's nest of electrical wires), so it's a quiet refuge from all the ruckus down in the Plaza. It's a .35 cent (5 peso) hop on the bus (every 2-3 minutes) for a 4 minute ride up or down the hill, or a $2.40 taxi ride right to anywhere in town. Most of our guests walk everywhere in SMA as the air is brisk and the nooks and crannies in the winding streets reveal different shops and restaurants each time. In the flats, the tight buildings and lack of wind can make for warm weather sometimes, the Jewels are up and tend to be around 5 degrees cooler and there's always a cool breeze passing through, and if too cool, each casita has a gas fireplace to take the chill off. The busses can also take you directly to the big mall if you go in the direction away from the Jardin, there's an Office Depot, 8 cinema complex and large grocery store. The location is great, we couldn't have been more pleased.
How to get there
There are two airports that service San Miguel. One is Queretaro (QRO) and the other, is Leon (BJX). My favorite is Queretaro as it is smaller, closer, and a smoother ride into town. If you are not traveling alone, we have a private car service that can take you to and from the airport for the same price as the Siri shuttle. This avoids waiting at the airport and dropping other passengers off. My favorite Shuttle in the city is Bajiogo Shuttle. The rates for both services (private car or Bajiogo) is $25 USD per person, one way.
