Casa del Oso is a world unto itself, your own private six-star resort and retreat overlooking the town of San Miguel. This magnificent property, recently constructed over a four-year period within a lush, one-acre garden complete with pool and outdoor Jacuzzi, is a luxury selection for up to 10 people, a spectacular main villa with five master suites.
The main villa exudes elegance at every turn, with great attention to detail exhibited in its beautiful furnishings, 16 grand fireplaces, unique art and wall treatments, hand-crafted tile and woodwork, and all the other special touches that make this house also a home. The full scale of the house gives every room a sense of importance, each space built and decorated with great care and personal pride of work. Every window has a gorgeous view, either of the garden or the cityscape below. Center to the main villa is an exquisite living room, flanked at one end by a large stone fireplace and by a dramatic oil painting at the other end. Stone floors with radiant heating and large arched windows lead out to the garden patio with its romantic fountain and formal stone staircase winding up to the casita.
A gourmet chef’s kitchen is one special feature of the main villa. Tiled with the craftwork of local artisans, the kitchen has an arched “boveda” ceiling and a cozy country fireplace. The appliances are top-of-the line, set amongst fine hand-carved wooden cabinetry and accented with custom tiles in the style of an old Mexican hacienda. The kitchen opens to an inviting breakfast area and a beautiful formal dining room. There also is a dining patio just outside, complete with a built-in gas grill.
Five bedrooms are included in the main villa. Three are upstairs, all with king beds. Downstairs, two more bedrooms offer another king suite and one room with two twin beds. All of these bedrooms could be considered master suites. Each has a luxurious en-suite bathroom, and all are outfitted with the finest linens and towels. Four of the five master suites have attached private balconies. An additional lounging room (with two daybed twins is fully equipped with a large adjoining bathroom and a separate steam room that can accommodate up to 6 people. Also downstairs is a comfortable media room with large flat-screen TV.
A casita in the garden offers additional bedrooms for up to 4 more guests. The casita has its own kitchen and living room, in addition to en-suite bedrooms.
Outside in the incredible garden, abundantly planted and designed by the foremost landscape architect in town, guests can relax in the magnificent solar-heated pool, which is just one of many outdoor water features. A large Jacuzzi can easily seat a dozen guests at a time. Numerous fountains create the mood and soothing atmosphere that invite one to linger just a while longer in a comfortable lounge chair.
Casa del Oso is fully staffed, including an on-site houseman/watchman and a full-time gardener. The services of a chambermaid and a cook (who come on Mon - Fri from 9 am to 3 pm and on Sat from 9 am to 12 noon) are also included in the rental rate to care for your every need. The cook can prepare breakfast 6 days a week and mid-day comida 5 days a week.
Off the master bedroom is a massage room, complete with table, should you want to call in a private masseuse. The villa also has a four-car garage for secure off-street parking, making it attractive to guests who come with their own vehicles to this town with very limited parking.
The lovely grounds of Casa del Oso are well-suited for special events, parties and weddings. Extra fees and entertaining guidelines are required when renting Casa del Oso as an event or party venue. Please inquire with the rental agent for more details.
