We built Casa Joya to be a home away from home, making sure it was comfortable and functional as well as a delight to the eye.

Here is what recent visitors Peter and Jackie from Ontario, Canada had to say about Casa Joya:

"Our very favorite place to stay, Casa Joya has so many wonderful attributes. Among them are its stunning views of the city and the surrounding Sierra, its perfect location so close to the center of San Miguel, and the marvel of the Casa itself, beautifully designed and the terrace is so beautifully lit at night it makes one wonder if its all real. It is so light and airy that the interior and courtyards seem to be one. We spent four weeks there and we highly recommend it."
