Loved it! Karen and Bernie are wonderful people, great hosts. The setting is very quiet, and the koi pond is relaxing. My room (number 2) was very comfortable and had a view overlooking the garden area. I did my grocery shopping in Tucson and brought food supplies up with me, and with the microwave, coffee maker and refriderator, did just fine! If you forget some breakfast supplies, you can get them in the "Snack Shack" for a reasonable price. They also supply a number of movies on dvd if you have time or the inclination to watch them. Everything was very clean and tidy. When I had the misfortune of a tire that was quickly going flat, Bernie pumped it back up so I could get to the local garage to get it fixed (many thanks to Bernie and to the gentleman at Dumont Family Car Repair who got it fixed up fast). I also was able to make the journey out to Kief-Joshua winery (recommended by Karen), and that was a very worthwhile diversion - if you like red wines, try the Tempranillo (and if you like white, the Pinot Grigio was tasty). thanks again Karen and Bernie!! If I'm in the area, I'll be back!
