Reviewer Comments:

Spent 5 nights in this wonderful property. Very comfortable for 6 adults and 1 toddler. Close to town without being right in the center of the chaos around the town square. The casita needed some cleaning when we arrived, minor but was overlooked. Management took care of it immediately.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many houses in our years of travels, but we've never felt so comfortable and well stocked! Not only was this an immaculate and artful adobe home with charm galore, but it had every little thing that a short term visitor might need and organized and labeled...making it simple to feel at home. Lots of sleeping options, and our family of 7 was very comfortable here! Thank you!

Reviewer Comments:

This place kept getting better the more we explored. The main house is very nicely designed, comfortable and tons of space in the kitchen and living room for leisurely cooking, meals and passing time. The casita is off the charts--tons of history, comfortable, cozy and provides a bit more quiet. The compound itself is huge with great tables for outdoor dining, a terrific hot tub, and a fire pit! We were there with three families and the kids had a great time. We are talking about another trip soon!
