Just spent a week here and we are both totally relaxed. Kudos to Tracy & Carl our hosts. Fabulous margaritas waiting for us (thanks for the recipe). The tribute to Frida is amazing as are all the little Mexican touches throughout. The kitchen has been so thoughtfully planned and everything of such high quality that meal prep was a dream.... more

Management response:

Have you made the margaritas yet? They sure are yum eh? So glad you two found the villa to meet all your needs and that everything was accessible for you. Thanks for the feedback on the kitchen. Carl is a kitchen designer/builder so we had an expert's touch when the kitchen was designed and built! Hope to see you again... more

We had two margaritas waiting for us in the freezer. They took the time to make a virgin one for my husband...delightful! The start-up they provided meant our... more

Management response:

We are thrilled the cottage was perfect for your anniversary and Carl was delighted to make your virgin margarita. Hope to see you again at Fridas in the future... maybe for the 10th anniversary! more
