Spent three fantastic months at Casa de los Chiqueados, September through November, in the Topaz unit before returning home to Honolulu. The entire property is stunning! The décor and decorations are beautiful and demonstrate much thought in their selection. The Topaz unit is a two bedroom and two bathroom unit. Besides being beautifully furnished, it is extremely comfortable with great bedding. The staff are amazingly attentive. The owners, Gary and Christina, are the perfect hosts and always eager to make certain that your needs are met. We love San Miguel and are so appreciative of the time that we were able to spend at Casa de los Chiqueados.

Casa de los Chiqueados is a fabulous place. The staff, especially Rosa and Jose Luis, are exceptional. Rosa is there 6 days of the week and is always willing to help. She goes above and beyond to do her job. I spent most of my time on the beautiful roof top. It is so peaceful up there. My apartment is well appointed and each apartment is uniquely decorated. I travel a lot and stay in apartments most of the time. I must say the kitchen is the most well stocked kitchen I have ever had. I have never needed anything that wasn't in the apartment. I don't cook....but if I did I would only need food and my spices. The apartment is stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal. I will return to San Miguel and will definitely stay at Casa de los Chiqueados.

What a hidden gem! The Casa is beautifully decorated and located centrally. Especially loved the roof top terrace. The owners and Jose Luis personally welcomed us like old friends. Fresh flowers and fruit were in Casa Diamante. Everything was thought out and designed to make us feel very special. Can't wait to go back."

We spent the month of February 2015 in Diamante, the 2 BR, 2 BA penthouse with private roof deck w/ gas barbecue. We loved it and tried to rent it for next year but it's already taken. We know San Miguel well, having visited for 45 years; built two homes; and lived here for 10 years. Now, we spend a few weeks or a month in a rental. We don't need the responsibility of ownership. We like this location! San Miguel is a walking town, and at 6500' elevation, takes some acclimatization when you arrive. However taxis are plentiful (unless it's raining) and inexpensive.

There are six units in Casa de Los Chiqueados, three studio apartments; one, one bedroom, and two, two bedroom units. We have only stayed in one, but have viewed all. The attention to detail by the owner is unsurpassed. Christina has put her heart and soul into this project and it shows in the art and general decor. The kitchen is beautifully equipped with quality pots and pans and sharp knives.

I would not recommend it for children, but for active adults, it's a great choice for a second honeymoon.

We had a fantastic stay in Casa Max, the sister property to Chiqueados. The warm and welcoming property is a duplex in the heart of the city with two spacious bedroom suites, cozy living and dining fully stocked kitchen and great private upstairs outdoor terrace. The decor is just beautiful, we did not want to leave. We really appreciated the high speed internet, welcome basket and binder about everything going on in San Miguel. They even had bathrobes in the closets for us. We arrived late in the evening and the property manager came out to let us in, much appreciated! We highly recommend this property and would stay there again anytime.
