The tea room is the most beautiful peaceful place to sit. THE spot IMHO to take a guest.

Best to see in Spring when plants begin to bloom. The restaurant there is fantastic.

Loved having lunch there at the tea room, then wandering the gardens. The art gallery in the original hacienda house still on the property from the 1920s was fantastic. Loved all the metal sculptures throughout the gardens -- and they are for sale though subtle price tags. The Docent was very helpful and took us on a short private tour. We loved this place! I wish we could have gone to the Gourd Workshop that was the following week but alas our trip was over and we couldn't do it. Maybe next time.

The landscaping is beautifully done -- all with desert plants. There is also a lovely tea house.

A beautiful place to commune with nature in all it's beauty. There are flowers, birds and animals to enjoy. We loved our trip there.
