|A view from your little adobe home|
This offering is well directed to those who are serious to somewhat serious about birdwatching. The grouns of your home are heavily wooded and structured to attract birds coming in from near and far. Our area's annualized bird specie count is in the vicinity of 450.
Butterflies abound as well. We happened to have built right on a major flyway of the Monarch Butterfly. Dragonflies and all nature of interesting beasties call the Quinta's grounds and surrounding Home.
|El Gringo Viejo,|
surveying his "estate"
Your home is truly adobe, built by fellow Episcopalians, selfishly to enjoy, along with those who deign to "come down the road" to our little place. It is built in the ancient, Spanish Colonial, somewhat Spartan, military style. You have a private entrance and a private bath. And full run of the rest of the house....refrigerator, television, etc. We even have a telephone!
Foregoing or including such things as birds and butterflies, this offering is excellent for a couple who would appreciate some of the above, and a lot of time just to amble, relax, and do nothing. Perhaps relaxing on our famous "long, west-facing corridor" imbibing in any number and presentations of liquids, and eating a couple of really nice meals each day would be reward enough.
This is the perfect place to sit in your huge rocking chair (mesadora) and read your Agatha Christi or whatever and let things pass by without need of attention. At night the lightning bugs and the Milky Way are always ready to put on a good show. During the afternoons and early evenings you might even see a bobcat or some foxes; one can even be content that the bears have managed to recover their populations, but they remain up in the mountains.
Your home is truly adobe, built by fellow Episcopalians, but selfishly to enjoy along with those who "come down the road" to our little "mud hut". It was built in the ancient Spanish Colonial, somewhat Spartan military style. You do have a private entrance and, of course, a private bath. And, you have full run of the casa, including the refrigerator, the satellite television(SKY). We even have a telephone that can connect the guest to "back home'' on an at cost basis.
|The famous long,|
We do request a minimum of two weeks notice before your arrival, and we would need to know how the winner of this very pleasant "estancia" would prefer to arrive.
