My husband and I and our 28 year old daughter spent 3 nights here while visiting my brother who retired nearby.
Where to start....the decor is divine, to 'write home about', and is accompanied by all the amenities; terry bathrobes, hair dryer, coffee pot, microwave, refrigerator, bottled water, whatever.
We had the two rooms on the second floor, which were utterly comfortable!
Our hosts, Steve and Fernando's care, attention and laid back manner made us feel welcomed, embraced and cared for. They are pleasant, helpful, astute, knowledgeable, entertaining, there for you, cool, and the kind of people you would want to have as close friends.
Breakfast is divine (make sure to have the chilequiles' with your eggs), and the feeling of the place, enveloped in greenery, flowers, the pool, and the blue sky is calm, serene, protected, and truly welcoming - a real sanctuary. The music in the dining/sitting areas is great, (Frank Sinatra, Mary Black, Leonard Cohen, etc...) adding to the interesting ambience. You feel like you're staying at your best friends' house, but without having to be a 'guest'; with privacy, sunshine, and total relaxation.
The day we left, at 7:00 a.m., after the all-night street parties, singing, music, dancing, firecrackers, bonfires etc. of the Xmas celebrations, Steve went out to get fresh bread so he could be sure we would have 'something' to eat, toasted it and made coffee before we left; all served with cloth napkins, silver, etc. etc. The essence of graciousness!
Did we love it? What do you think?
Claire, Michael and Alexis
