We agree with all of the positive reviews other travellers have shared. We were there for only one night a few weeks back. This was our first B&B experience and we had concerns about the owner or guests being overly chatty/intrusive. That was not the case. There were also other young couples there during our stay which was another factor we were unsure of going in. The owners were very low-key and the guests were friendly, but in no way did anything feel forced.
We dined at the brew pub down the way and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. It was above the average pub food we were expecting.
As others have stated, everything was clean, quiet, and peaceful at Santosha. Very thoughtful. One thing of note is bring your swimsuits. We did not notice on the website that a hot tub was available and found out upon arrival. Next time!
We especially enjoyed the leaving ritual the inn provides. Just a cool place. We felt like we got away for much longer than one day.
