We had two appartments and the Belhambra Cottage. What could one say? I loved it back in 2009 and I love it even more now. The accomodations are absolutely... More

It was wonderful to stay at the Amanzi! We already knew Pam but her kindness and hospitality were over the top. We stayed at the Belhambra Cottage and it's perfect for 4 people. We really want to thank all involved with the Amanzi because it's truly a Home away from Home. We send all our Love, Patricia and Helena.

Words cannot accurately describe our stay at Amanzi.
