As you enter the front door, sit on the large woven bench for your comfort, leave your shoes & slip into silk slippers awaiting you or walk barefoot. Botanicals, succulents, cactus, fruit trees & natural wildlife visit this space daily as we welcome peach-faced lovebirds, bunnies & hummingbirds attracted to the lush vegetation here. Beautiful sunsets & sunrises to enjoy & easy access to fun, the city & the airport; you are home.
