Breakfast was a single corn tortilla with a ground meat filling that Tom called 'Italian'. No juice or milk. Only water served. A single 1/8 c of fruit. I truly think he split a single banana amongst all 8 guests. Welcome reception was a single apple sliced on a plate with about 1/8th cup of almonds and 1/8 c of... More

This place changed names three times in one year, possibly the last one is because there was already a Sundance Bed and Breakfast open. "Desperado" is a bit of a cliche, don't you think. What's coming next "Casa Frito Bandito"? This place has a well deserved reputation for simply shrugging off customer complaints.

This past weekend was suppose to be a great girls weekend trip. The Desperado spoiled it!!!!Last December six of us booked rooms at the Inn through a Living Social Deal (three rooms) for a weekend in May. When my friend called, Tom said she was the first one to call for that weekend. Put her name down, asked her if... More

This was still the Sundance Inn when we visited, 4 of us. Nice rooms, Great location and host. Tom wears a lot of hats so he may not be there for your every need, but he is there when he says. Tom is very helpful when it comes to local knowledge and making you feel at home. Last thing just... More

I bought a voucher for 2 nights and made a reservation on their website, however there were still a few questions I needed answered. It took 4 weeks of phone calls and emails until the owner, Tom, got back to me. After answering my initial questions, I did inquire about restaurant and winery recommendations, and he NEVER go back to... More

We had a voucher as a gift from a family member. When making our reservations we added an extra night and paid the taxes for the voucher nights and the extra night. However, when we arrived immediately even before being shown our room, our host Tom asked for the taxes for the two voucher nights. I said we had already... More

All we can say is "Fantastic"!!! When we arrived we were greeted by our innkeeper, Tom, and shown to our wonderful room. We were in the Kitchina suite with a front door opening to the main inn courtyard and a back door opening to a semi private patio. The room was large and comfortable and we slept like babies both...

Wonderful experience, Kim made us feel especially welcomed. The common areas and room were very clean, warm and homey. Breakfasts prepared by the owner were great. The view of the surrounding hills from the back of the inn where the pool is is beautiful. Dvds, popcorn, and chocolate were a cute touch. Our room, the Porta Fina, was very spacious... More

This was an interesting adventure in the ups and downs of Bed and Breakfast travel. Our first hurdle was locating the place. When I made my reservation in November, the inn was in process of being renamed 'Sundance', from the 'Villa Amorosa'; when I rechecked the information just before the trip, it said nothing about another name change! Good thing... More
