Leaves & Lizards should be on everyone's bucket list!

by jj2701

This was truly a vacation of a lifetime! Debbie & Steve (the owners) were fabulous hosts. Sally & Eric made the trip so special, and the entire staff was very accommodating and helpful and it made the entire experience very enjoyable. It felt like we were all one big happy family. My room (the butterfly villa) was gorgeous! I enjoyed the beauty of being in nature and can't complain about the outdoor shower and jacuzzi either - so luxurious! :) The food was delicious - so much so that I asked for some recipes. Everyone on the staff was exceptional and helpful. And I didn't even mention the incredible horses!! I could go on and on about how fabulous they all were. Starting my day milking Bella the cow and collecting eggs from the chickens, playing with the kittens and dogs, then on to Eric's Mindful Movement class, all before a delicious breakfast was more than I could ask for. And then on to the wonderful classes with the horses (and Debbie, Sally, and Danielle) which were truly unforgettable. I don't know what else to say except that I can't wait to go back!

The staff is genuine and truly wants to make your trip memorable! Find Alejandro and tell him the Snyder’s say hi!!

If you want an experience to remember don’t leave the leaves and lizards out!!
