At first glance it looks like a very pretty, yet normal apartment complex. I didn't get the feeling that I was in a Hotel which at first was a bummer because I like that feeling of being away from home & traveling. That said, the complex colors were very inviting & surrounded by tons of gorgeous blooming flowers. Fast forward to check-in, we got an extremely warm & friendly welcome from Barney Villa. He answered my multitude of questions, gave us great feedback and recommendations where to visit & hike during our stay. Finally he sent us on our way with a couple of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies. Meeting Barney upon arrival really set the tone for the rest of the weekend. Oh yah, the room was great! Wonderful bedding and really nice and clean overall!!
