Incredible views of San Jose! Nice place for a picnic in the back overlooking the city. The villas were amazing! Breakfast was delicious. Everyone was very nice and extremely helpful. Highly recommend staying here. Only 15 minutes or so to the airport.

Fantastic property with great staff! We stayed two nights and enjoyed a home cooked breakfast, great service, and nice views from the hilltop. It is an older property but it is well taken care of and very clean. It's further out in the hills but still feels safe because of the gate and security guard.
