If it is wellness to recovery after surgery or just a retreat from it all to "reset your clock" the CheTica Ranch Medical Recovery Retreat will meet your expectations. The accommodations and grounds provide the idea setting to heal the body, mind, and soul. You can still connect with the "outside world" via in room TV and wireless internet or just relax to cool jazz (San Jose 95.5 Jazz) that greats you as you arrive in your room. The staff is exceptionally friendly and ready to meet your every need. I had a fire built for me several times in my in room fireplace. Meals are exceptional as well. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner can be brought to your room or if you wish a dining room is available to experience community sharing, free USA calls, or any number of books, cd's, and current movie titles to play in your room. The grounds are manicured with breathtaking landscapes settled below volcanos in the distance. You are close enough to town for a quick visit, but far enough away from San Jose to appreciate the beautiful and very quite country side. The retreat is gated which brings added security and peace of mind.
Nurse Francis was an absolute Angel during my recovery. She checked in on me several times a day and called the doctor for any concern. The owner, Ruben and his wife are engaged in the day to day operations and are very visible. Their children also serve and support visitors to the Retreat. I have not met more beautiful and sincere individuals that truly made me feel welcome and that they care for my wellbeing.
If this all sounds a bit much, it is not..........the CheTica Ranch earned every bit of my praise.
