Beautiful home in a great location. Staff was polite, thoughtful and very pleasant. We loved Mikey

  • 5 of 5

Great house for multiple couples. Plenty of space for privacy and plenty of opportunities for casual or even formal dinners and gatherings. While we did not use the pool it looked very inviting. It is a 300 year old house coupled with another to make a beautiful compound. We would definitely do it again.

Beautiful property and great location.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this home if you're looking for a large property in a great location. Booking through Katharine gave us a great resource for our trip. The staff at the property is first rate. Make sure that you have them prepare a Mexican breakfast each morning. Fantastic way to start the day!

Week at Casa Tortugas

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to stay! It is so relaxing! The staff is very friendly, helpful and accommodating! The kitchen staff did an excellent job in preparing and serving our meals; they were all delicious! And you just can't beat the guacamole, chips, and margaritas they prepared!

The location is perfect! There were 12 of us here for a week! Plenty of room to not feel crowded and several areas for all of us to gather. It was worth the extra to have the pool heated!

Incredibly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Casa Las Tortugas is one of the most beautiful houses I have ever seen, let alone had the pleasure of staying in. There are so many different areas to explore, and they are all beautiful! We had a party of 13, and it still felt almost empty, considering how much space there is. Oscar, the manager of the house, was incredibly accommodating and helped us with every aspect of our stay. We couldn't have been happier, and will definitely try to come back soon!

Casa Tortugas is truly the most stunning home/property is San Miguel and made the perfect vacation home for my family and friends!

Everything, from the decor to the upkeep of the gardens and grounds was dialed in. There was no detailed forgotten. Our stay was so enjoyable we barely left the home to see the sights of San Miguel.

AND to make it even harder to leave was Oscar and the staff. They are an incredible team and so thoughtful and attentive and kind and pleasant and talented and warm and helpful... I could go on and on! Oscar helped with organizing grocery shopping, meal planning, calling taxis and Maria Rosa cooked delicious meals everyday.

On the days we were actually able to pull ourselves from the villa we walked toward the jardin which is a 5 minute stroll away from our favorite bakery, restaurants, and the new concept house Doce18. The only regret we have is that we didn't stay longer!
