Based on the immediate greeting from Linda and Dan as we arrived at Hacienda Linda, it was obvious we were in for a wonderful retreat. Linda and Dan were so unbelievably gracious in allowing our daughter to join us for this Mother's Day get away. Thank you. While we are Tucson natives and residents, Hacienda Linda truly felt like an out-of-town vacation retreat.
Linda gave us the comprehensive inside tour of this desert gem and Dan gave us a history tour and showed around the 6-acre oasis. We spent hours just getting to know Dan and Linda - and Gomez and Bella - the resident dogs. Bella howled a few times just to say that she liked us being there.
The house is beautiful indeed. So much of Dan and Linda's tastes, style, and hard work comes through in the house design. They have done an amazing job restoring a former Jazz musician's home. We had a truly spectacular dinner. Linda put together a seriously tasty meal and we all enjoyed more time just talking. We slept beautifully and awoke to yet another amazing meal - this time from Dan. Omelets, juice, pastries, coffee - the works. We lounged around the breakfast table and decided that we really did not want to leave. Thank you both so much for such a wonderful time at your beautiful home. We wish you all the best and can't wait to host you at our home.
