Hellos and Goodbyes

Guestbook

Casa de Los Chiqueados is the gold standard for any vacation hideaway. The casa consists of different suites, all appointed with the finest furnishings and elegant details. The casa caretaker, Jose Luis, was so helpful and kind. All the staff were exceptional, gracious and so welcoming. They took care to help with anything we needed. The Casa is located on a very quiet street in an elegant neighborhood right in the center of town. You can easily walk to all the top locations and shopping areas. The owners provided a beautifully detailed guide to the premises, as well as all the info you could want on necessities and the area. We arrived and had beautiful fresh flowers and a bottle of good wine awaiting us. We can't say enough good things about Casa de los Chiqueados and it's fantastic owner, Christina Ruckel.

We are staying in the Esmeralda suite. It’s so nice you don’t want to leave the room. It was filled with flowers and the decoration was incredibly done, elegant and comfortable. But when you do venture out you are just a couple of blocks away from the center of city. It’s an amazing place and we wish we could stay forever. The people, the shops, and the endless wonderful restaurants and cafes. And romance in the air everywhere. We will be back as soon as we can, and we found our new favorite place to stay when we are here.

Casa de los Chiqueados is amazing. I stayed in Esmeralda for the second time, staying for over a month. Everything is wonderful. Beautiful building with everything perfect inside the unit and in the building. Christina has a gift for decorating. You arrive to fresh flowers and fruit in the unit. The location is one block off a main street so convenient and safe, plus an easy walk to the Jardin or anywhere you want to go in Centro. Blocks from the Artisan Market and vegetable market - I highly recommend the building. There are multiple units to chose from - just don't take mine when I want it!

Recently had the opportunity to stay in San Miguel at Casa de los Chiqueados again. I plan my trip to San Miguel around availability of rooms. I love the city of San Miguel, the food, the smells, the people. If you don't stay at this Casa you unfortunately get runner up lodgings. I love this place so much!

Casa de los Chiqueados is in the top three on the list of the best places I have stayed. I am a world traveler so that is saying a lot. Christina, the owner, goes above and beyond to make each guest feel special and to make sure the needs of her guests are met. Christina possesses the gift of hospitality. When you see how she makes each guest feel welcomed and part of the Casa de los Chiqueados family, you have to recognize this as a gift. She is also a gifted decorator. The apartments are stylishly decorated. In each apartment it is very obvious that a lot of thought went into planning down to the smallest detail. The rooftop was actually my favorite place in the complex. It was so comfortable, if I was up there more than ten minutes I’d fall asleep. If I needed anything Rosa or Jose Luis was right there to help. Rosa takes care of the property and Jose Luis manages. It was always a nice surprise when treats from homemade cookies, brownies and even the best homemade pasta sauce I have ever tasted were delivered to my apartment from Christina. Christina is an excellent cook. She is a master at everything related to Casa de los Chiqueados. You will want for nothing when staying at Casa de los Chiqueados. As a solo traveler I felt safe the entire time. The apartments are central to restaurants, shops and the main square. Would I visit again? You bet. I am planning on returning in 2016 and staying longer.

This our 2nd visit to San Miguel. Both times, we stayed at a property owned by Christina and Gary. They have beautifully furnished casas. We do a fair amount of cooking if we are on an extended vacation, and it is obvious they know what one needs in a kitchen. We truly feel at home. Their staff is absolutely awesome. Jose Luis is very responsive. This property on Organos is centrally located. We stayed 31 days and it has been perfect in every way.
