My boyfriend and I stayed here for about a week last winter and had a wonderful time. Our cabin was amazing--one of the best ones on the site--and during our stay, ran about $80 a night total (which in our book seemed very affordable.) The small additional fee to pick whatever fruits and vegetables desired off of the property to... More

Brian and Jody are wonderful hosts of this retreat center- I loved being part of this raw vegan awareness community for the short 10days I was there and can't wait to return. Finca is reasonably priced with raw food optional on this gorgeous and peaceful land where you can pick your own veggies from the greenhouse if you choose. Daily... More

Amazing experience at beautiful place with wonderful people. No worries if you are not raw or even vegan, the fruits here are soooo amazing and delicious they won't leave you wanting anything else. There is plenty to do around finca. You can do all kinds of excursions or do the hiking and swimming on your own, morning yoga, meditations, raw... More

Just spent a quick 5 days at Finca de Vida and it was exactly the restorative reboot I’d hoped for. It’s a beautiful property and, thanks to the hosts Jody and Brian, I immediately felt at home—even though I was a first time (and solo) visitor. The cabin was lovely –especially the hammock on the back porch and the bathroom... More

Finca de Vida is a ver special place, full of healing and beauty. I arrived there exhausted, out of shape and quite weak. I left 15 lbs lighter, happier and much stronger. Brian and Jody are very kind people who have given many a tremendous gift by creating such a wonderful place to experience health and growth on your own... More

I had such an amazing time at the farm. I spent a month there with several other guests and we had so much fun. There's so much positive energy and love from both the nature and the people. I came here mainly to work with my inner self and I got everything and even more than I hoped for! Brian,... More

How can I describe the beautiful surroundings and the experience we had on our yoga retreat. Brian and Jody are such wonderful people and gave me a very peaceful and non judgemental outlook on life. The cabin we stayed in was one of the new ones just built and had a spectacular view of the valley. It was so awesome... More

I arrived late in the night and woke up to breathtaking scenery all around me! The layout of the farm is so well thought out and everything seems as if it has been carved out by God. Each part of the farm has been built with love and that came out the more and more I sank myself into this... More

Farm of Life is a vacation of a lifetime. Clean air, beautiful environment, cleansing, clean, farm fresh, organic, delicious food are just some of the positive aspects. Jody and Brian, who own the farm, are very accommodating, loving and spiritual people who plan breath taking activities and sites to see. The cabins are lovely and very clean. You can sleep... More

I knew my retreat with the amazing Twist & Sprout girls Susan and Lorna would be a fantastic, but I had not considered how much Finca de Vida would add to this experience. I found the location breathtaking and welcoming. The accommodation, amenities and surroundings are faultless...and I am more than a little bit fussy! The hosts and staff were... More
