This review is not difficult to write. Casa Bella Rita is more than all the good things we expected. This review is probably a bit different than most because while we were in the San Jose area, my wife suffered fractures of her tibia, fibula and a severe dislocation of her ankle. The actions of Rita and Steve were more than we could have ever expected. A Red Cross ambulance took my wife to Hospital CIMA (a wonderful facility in its own right) while Steve drove me there with no questions asked. When my wife was able to return from the hospital after a couple days, Rita had prepared a welcome tray for her. My wife and I really appreciate all they did for her (and me) while she was essentially confined to her room for the remainder of our trip.
Of course, I wish we could have done more exploring of the San Jose area (this happened on our first day in the area), but that wasn't to be. Believe it or not, our desire is to return some day to be able to complete our journey... more
