The casa is tastefully decorated w/faux painted walls of various colors and textures and interesting details including soaring ceilings ranging from boveda to tile w/wood beamed and woven bamboo ceilings w/recessed lighting w/dimmer controls for atmosphere. There are two custom fountains and numerous plantings and gardens throughout the entrance and rear of the home and up onto the second floor balcony. There are two built in murals which were hand painted, fired and installed. The outdoors literally come into the villa through triple double atrium doors, a giant atrium entranceway w/fountain and huge palm tree and other large windows and skylights well placed throughout the villa. There is a large rooftop terrace with conversation area seating as well as dining area for 8 and 3 lounge chairs to “soak” up the pleasant san Miguel sun!

Words can not describe the wonderful experience we had in your beautiful home and enchanting San Miguel. We were awestruck from the moment we walked through the door. The casa was absolutely perfect, attention paid to every detail. The roof top view could not be topped by any hotel or restaurant that we visited while there and we visited many. Thank you all for sharing your home and town with us. We plan to make this an annual event. See you next april.
I just posted 90+ pictures on my Facebook page...Denice Brent Carlile.
Thank you again for everything.

My husband and I loved every minute of our stay here! We enjoyed the influence of the surrounding area with every modern convenience you could want. We could walk to majority of places on our agenda and/or take a taxi with ease and very reasonable rates. The home was perfectly kept inside and out; every room was comfortable and charming. The only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!

Wonderful Start to an Extended Holiday

My wife and I recently spent 3 weeks at Puesta Del Sol at the start of our extended stay in San Miguel and found it hard to leave when it was time to move on. We were enchanted with the unparalleled views from the rooftop, enamored with the kitchen facilities (having reverse osmosis treated water is so convenient too), and simply delighted with the light and space of the home. And then there were the staff, Jorge the gardener and azucena the maid/cook-- they were so discreet yet personable and really catered to our personalities and needs as if we were long lost family friends. Sound too good to be true? It almost was. Of course, there is one other small "benefit" I should mention-- the hill leading up to the house provided mandatory exercise each day to help work off the calories of living the good life in SMa but you can cheat and simply catch a cab back home too). It's not often that a place delivers on everything it is represented to be, but this home certainly did, and provided us with a sensational start to our extended holiday.

From the front door to the rooftop this house is a delight. The beautiful mexican architecture is reflected everywhere, even in the ceilings. The double windows open to let in the cool night air which makes for a refreshing nights sleep. The modern conveniences completes the comfort zone for a delightful visit. From the garden for breakfast to the rooftop for evening drinks all was perfect. I wholeheartedly look forward to returning. Thanks
