Your total privacy is assured.  Typically you will be greeted by the owners who walk you through initially to show how things work.  Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can kick back and relax on your own. 

Hacienda Serena is prepared for you with environmentally friendly cleaners & completely sanitized after each rental. Quality control and the immaculate condition of the entire home are of utmost importance to us, so there is a hands-on walk through before each rental.

The almost level-in entries and single story layout are mobility-friendly for those who find stairs difficult. 

 Please do read the guest reviews! A typical comment in our guest book:
