This small modern B and B is perfect for birding. Just a half mile from Santa Ana nwr. In farm country. Patio area with extensive foliage, hummingbird and other feeders and small water feature. Breakfast is ordered and put out night before which is perfect for early morning departure. Downsides: Need to upgrade some breakfast options. Folgers doesn't cut it... More

We second all the positive reviews previously written. Beautiful comfortable lodge, gracious hosts and great breakfasts ready to be heated and enjoyed at any time in the morning. (A great plus for photographers or birders who need to get out early). John and Judy are knowledgable about the area, its refuges and all the birds within them. If you're looking... More

While there was a small mixup in our reservation, Judy made it all right, and we had a very enjoyable stay. The room and common area was comfortable and convenient, and the grounds were very well kept and secure. The location right next to Santa Ana NWR made the location excellent for birders and anyone who wanted to visit the... More

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at Casa Santa Ana. It is right next to the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, about 7 miles outside of Alamo TX. Our hosts John and Judy McClung couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Our room was spacious. There was a common area with a laundry, dishwasher, refrigerator, TV, and coffee maker... More

Judy and John are most gracious inn-keepers! We came for a late spring migration birding and photography vacation. Our room was spotless, light and airy. The patio area was TEAMING with hummingbirds! Food selections are made the evening before; this works great for early risers who want to get out and go! The inn is within a 5 minute drive... More

Our trip to the Lower Rio Grande Valley was made so much better by our stop at Casa Santa Ana. John and Judy were great hosts with John having a wealth of information on local birding hot spots. Other birders staying there at the same time also guided us in our travel plans. Sitting our on the patio area in... More

We have visited Casa Santa Ana twice and could not have been happier either time. John and Judy are wonderful hosts, warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the birding in the area. We love having breakfast waiting for us when we get up and sitting in the courtyard, listening to the night sounds is a great way to end the... More

Hosts John and Judy made us feel very comfortable. John actually took us out on a night time birding excursion in his SUV to see the nocturnal parauques. We saw many and learned about the area and about the birds. Since the b and b is close to the Santa Ana NWR, we went over there and saw a great... More

An ideal birdwatching site, with excellent rooms, lots of space, our own "private" birdwatching site in the woods next to our B&B, doing our own thing in the big kitchen/lounge area, peaceful and quiet, friendly hosts, went out of their way to take us out in their SUV late at night to see nocturnal species (great!!)--even sighted a bobcat.

If you are planning to bird the Lower Rio Grande Valley, especially at Santa Ana NWR, then this is the place to stay. Hosts John & Judy are very pleasant and attentive folks and John is especially knowledgable and helpful with birding advice. The rooms are comfortable & spacious and open onto a common shaded porch with a garden view... More
