A wonderful stay outside the city

4.4 on May 02, 2013

Jerry & Vonnie were very welcoming and helpful. The "Little House" was outfitted beautifully and was very comfortable. The setting, looking toward the Catalina Mountains, was wonderful and being away from the city while still being close to shopping and restaurants was very convenient. The ranch backs up to state land and offers easy hiking and fine bird watching. What better way to start a morning than laughing at the Quail & chicks running around the ranch house. For breakfast we could choose from a well stocked pantry or request special items to prepare in our kitchen. Overall it was a great stay and we have some fine memories.

Wonderful place to stay!!

If you like to hike, ride horses, love the outdoors or just plain relax, this is the place for you! We stayed for almost a week and will be back for more. Vonnie and Jerry are wonderful hosts. They were so gracious and helpful. Vonnie made arrangements for us to join a bird walking tour at our request, very enjoyable (one of the many highlights of our stay) She also gave directions, even escorted us to the trail head for a beautiful hike... right adjacent to their property. (after driving all the way for Illinois it was nice not to have to get back in the car right away :) Our room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. We loved sitting on the patio and watching all the birds, hummingbirds, and wildlife. So much fun!!

What a find!

We stayed at Casa De Caballo for two weeks in February. It was surprising to find a horse ranch located in the middle of a beautiful suburb! We were so comfortable in the casita and really loved seeing all the wildlife right there on the property -- loads of bunnies, quail and other birds, and of course the horses that live there. Jerry & Vonnie are delightful hosts and very accommodating! They made several good suggestions for activities in the area to match our interests (hiking, etc) and even drove us to one of the locations. There are some good walks and hikes available right from the ranch. We'd love to go back again next year!

spectacular hosts and location

Jerry & Vonnie are the nicest people you could meet. They took great care of my family during our recent stay - from legos for my son to play with to letting him sit up on a horse! We appreciated being able to cook some of our meals in the kitchenette and on the grill. Casa De Caballo is very clean and nicely furnished. You can't go wrong staying there!
