My husband and I spent the weekend at Villa La Casita and it is a weekend we will never forget. Donna welcomed us at the Villa and gave us a tour of this beautiful hacienda. She made us feel so welcome and she takes pride in her beautiful B & B. The decor is adorable and appropriate. The courtyard is a perfect place to have your breakfast; the sounds of the fountain were so relaxing. We drank our wine outside and enjoyed the smells of the flowers she has surrounding the courtyard. The yard itself was so lush and beautiful. We could not get enough of being "outside". The interior of the house was just as welcoming and relaxing. The scents and sounds of the music playing were so romantic. We will surely be going back to visit and we recommend this B & B to anyone who gets a chance to experience this perfect place.

this home is lovely! We have loved every minute here and wish we could stay forever. the mood, lighting, shuttered windows, and enticing odors really made walking in the front door delightful! We ate breakfast and dinner everyday in courtyard. Thank you for a perfect time!

What a dream come true! We had a very small informal wedding at Villa La Casita and it was perfect! It is beautiful and a great backdrop for photos. My teen daughter stayed in the loft bedroom and loved waking up to the balcony overlooking the courtyard. The master bedroom is very comfortable and although there is only one bathroom it is large and comfy. The house also has a fully functional kitchen and Donna keeps everything you can think of stocked up. It's just a short walk to a very nice oceanside public park with great view of downtown at night. What a unique place and great Innkeeper. We highly recommend it for a special event or just a nice weekend getaway.

We've stayed at several B&B's, but we have NEVER enjoyed our stay as much as here. Donna's wonderful hospitality, love of decorating, a touch of romance made this place magical for us. We will be back!

This place was like being transported to another place and time. I was enveloped by the comfy linens and bedding. My favorite things were walking up to the sights and sounds of my private courtyard and then starting a fire in the wood burning fireplace. This was business, but can't wait to bring my husband for a romantic getaway!

The time and care taken to make the inn perfect shows in every detail. There was artistry everywhere- every glance and touch was a delight for the senses. Music, candles, soft light and beauty made the inn an escape from real life. It was wonderful having an entire house that was so romantic and intimate. Having our very own courtyard, fountain was over the top!!

My husband and I stayed here recently and absolutely loved every moment. Everything you see here is asthetically pleasing. The coziest places in the home are the loft and the bedrooms. We wish that the couch and dining areas were a little more comfy to relax (they are gorgeous, though). This villa has everything you need: a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful blankets and pillows, lots of soft towels,and a very courteous owner. Donna even called us midway through our stay to see if we needed anything. As you enter the villa, you are welcomed by romantic music, a light snack, a bottle of wine and the most wonderful, warm aromas throughout the house. You will not want to leave. This place makes the most relaxing, ROMANTIC retreat. We did find that a few rooms throughout the home were quite dusty, and because I am allergic, it was a very minor dissappointment. We loved our time here, and danced together the last few moments before we left. Thank You Donna and Casita for a much needed romantic get-away!
