I got married at Villa Cascada in November and from the beginning it was everything I could dream of. Pam is easy to work with and she worked hard to make sure my wishes and visions were passed on to the vendors she works with. She made the planning process so easy. I felt like I was emailing her constantly,...

Pam was incredible from start to finish, working with our group and figuring out options and pricing. The house was absolutely perfect as well. It is essentially a private hotel for your friends and or family. Each room is spacious, clean, comfortable, and is cleaned by the staff daily. The food was delicious, and came with breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack,...

Hands down this was the most gorgeous, splendid, delightful and alluring places one (or many) should visit. Although there was a small hiccup in our stay; Jack Cox (owner) was there to make sure that everything ran smoothly and his guests were taken care of! I would love for my family to return next year. Oh might I add that...
