“Million Dollar View, but look closely. . .”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015
people found this review helpful

The view from the terrace of this casita absolutely cannot be beat. It truly is a million-dollar view. All three of the casitas in this complex located behind a non-descript door have enviable locations. The housekeeper, Lupe, is magnificent; she comes and goes on gossamer wings. (My flight was delayed and I had to take a long taxi ride because I missed my shuttle, but Lupe waited.)
However, look a little more closely past that breathtaking panorama. Now that might be difficult in the evening because there is woefully inadequate lighting. But the abundance of natural lighting during the day does allow you to see that there are chips in the tile in the bathroom as well as residue on the fixtures in the bathroom. There is also no spigot in the bathtub.
All in all, Casita Ruby was great for this trip to SMA because seeing the jacarandas in bloom was the primary purpose and being in the hills just can't be beat.. But it's just too far away from the restaurants, galleries, and activities.
We spent our last night downstairs in Casita Topaz because the owners had over-booked. (There was confusion about moving, but it all worked out.) Again, we loved the location on the Mirador. But it was dingy and dark with too few light fixtures and an unbearably small bathroom.

The odd thing about this guest and her review is that she phoned me recently and raved about it and tried to book again for this year, go figure.
