Sorry for the late review but I wanted to make sure I did one because trip advisor comments helped me decide. Better late than never. We have never been to a b&b before but i have the feeling that Kathy & Larry may have spoiled us rotten for any other places.
I did an insane amout of research looking for the perfect honeymoon accomodations since we have a little one on the way and this would be probably our last trip alone for quite some time. We were looking for luxury, privacy, gorgeous views, and good food.
We weren't sure about the b&b thing for privacy but it turned out to be perfect. Kathy and Larry have a perfect knack of being available when you need them while at the same time offering the utmost privacy. We stayed in both rooms but I recommend to anyone to go the extra mile & stay in the safari room. You can't hear a thing really up there.
We would open our blinds at night just before we went to bed so that the sunrise over cathedral rocks would gently wake us up in the giant picture windows. I would roll over, hit the remote control for the beautiful gas fireplace and the room would be toasty by the time the colors had changed in the sky. Then padding downstairs in pjs for our custom ordered, organic yummy breakfast.
We could consult with Kathy & Larry for restaurants & plans. Kathy even helped us plan a special honeymoon reservation. They are super knowledgeable and Kathy even walked us to the paths.
The services offered were great, we had in room massages from local therapists and Kathy did a hand treatment too.
The rooms are perfect down to the last detail. They have humidifiers, door sound mufflers, radios in room that you can hook to your phone and luxurious furnishings & bathing space. While in our room (safari in particular) we felt totally alone and private. The grounds are also breathtaking, it is so quiet and peaceful. We were able to do our morning meditations outside. We walked their beautiful labyrinth as well.
I could go on and on. Also the food & smoothies & constant chocolate is DIVINE!
The honeymoon was a gift from a relative otherwise we may jot have been so lucky as to stay here the first time, but we are convinced and will save our own pennies to return one day. I would rather save longer to stay here than go anywhere else. So if you are wondering if the services are worth the price.... Yes!!! Splurge on this place. The memories from here will last our lifetime and Kathy & Larry helped to make it possible.
