About Chet Kozlowski

I'm a writer and artist living in Manhattan. My wife and I visited San Miguel and fell instantly in love with it (a typical story) and bought this house. We share it when we're not in town.

Chet Kozlowski purchased this house in 2006

Why Chet Kozlowski chose San Miguel de Allende

Bask in light, air, sunshine, beauty, tranquility.

Great home in a great town ,

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is ideal for two couples sharing. It has many different areas with comfortable seating, (inside and out) , a well equipped kitchen and barbecue area, and a plethora of good books. The vonage and smart TV were also appreciated. Nicolas was an invaluable asset as he helped our transition to life in San Miguel. We can’t wait to return.

Me and three more friends visited for the 15 of September. Our experience was very nice, Chet is a very good host and his house is beautiful. We would definitely stay again in Chet´s place.

Views and comfort

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of January in San Miguel. We were welcomed immediately by Nicolas, who took care of anything that might have come up. The home has an amazing garden and views. It's comfortable and has everything that you might need for a stay in SMA. We ate, we drank, we walked everywhere and we lost weight! There is lots to see and do.

repeat renter

  • 5 of 5

This year will mark my tenth visit to Casa Clara. I return year after year because it is an exceptionally beautiful estate home in a quiet quaint town. It truly has become my home away from home. Nicolas the caretaker and Chet the owner take good care and have great attention to detail. All amenities are available for a more than comfortable stay. The home is perched up on a hill that provides the perfect spot for sunsets and an incredible view of the church-filled town. It is surrounded by lush garden courtyard providing plenty of serene spots to recline. I travel a lot but I rarely return year after year to the same place. I plan to continue my return visits to this magnificent home in this enchantingly beautiful town for as long as the house is available!

A Rejuvenating Retreat: I've stayed here three times already

  • 5 of 5

Every day, twice a day, I was feeding dozens of humming birds while gazing at a view that was never less than wondrous. There's a glorious garden, spacious rooms, a full kitchen, a splendid terrace, and even though there's a spaciousness that lets you feel isolated, you are in fact in walking distance from restaurants, grocery stores, a superb library, parks, and a quick taxi ride away from a cinema and shopping center.

Lovely gardens and comfortable spacious Home in Atascadero

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed in this home several times and love the quiet, sounds of birds, views of storms approaching in the rainy season and the luxuriant flowers and outdoor spaces behind the large property wall. It has a large garage with an automatic door (rare in SMA). It has a wonderful central space ideal for entertaining and a modern kitchen filled with everything one needs. The new master bath is attractive and filled with natural light. one can get to the Jardin in 10 minutes and to the botanical garden in about the same. There is great hiking around the corner.

If you want space and views and serenity without the intrusion of daily staff, this house is perfect.

The house manager is wonderful and helpful and very nice.
