My husband and I were given this overnight stay as a gift while down in Andalusia and spent Valentines night there. Wow, we were bowled over for sure! From the minute we walked in to the time we left we were treated like family. Ricky and Laura go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome.
The room we stayed in, Bethany Dawn Suite, was decorated in its own style, as are all the other rooms. The area is a peaceful one and the grounds are large enough to take a walk. There is a chapel on the property where many weddings and social events are held and the owners take care of all the catering.
Breakfast was awesome with a special surprise for all the guests for Valentines Day i.e. strawberries and designed chocolate. Lots to eat although you don't have a choice as to what you can eat - the same breakfast is prepared for everyone at the table although I am sure the owners would make exceptions if and when required.
Two awesome people who make you feel so at home and take time to have a conversation.
Our only gripe was that the walls of the rooms are very 'thin' i.e. we could hear guests in the room next door being very amorous and that was the only negative of our overnight stay. Perhaps they were just 'audible' people at night in their room, but it was the only thing that was negative to our stay.
The decor of the whole house is something to behold and so much history in how the home came to be where it is and the changes and renovations that went along with everything is captured in albums for your pleasure and information.
Overall a definite MUST when looking for a good place to stay.
