What a delightful place to relax! Dennis and Christine were very personable; she and I had fun chatting about our growing up experiences. We've stayed at a number of bed and breakfasts and never had anything close to the gourmet, imaginative meals that were served to us. We stayed in the Santa Ana Casita. It was just right - clean, comfortable (!) bed, a patio leading to the garden and pool area, a more private patio patio for looking at the mountains and watching the quail, lots of windows to make it feel light and airy, a circular stairway to ascend to that comfortable bed. I loved the plant window in the shower. One of the much appreciated features was the quiet and and the chance to stargaze without having to drive somewhere. Come back? Absolutely.
