Even tho I was working while I was staying at Blue agave, I felt relaxed and comfortable. The hosts are gracious, kind, and very good cooks! I've stayed there before, and I'll stay again. Thanks to P & D !!

We visited in april. Our Casita was beautiful, comfortable and clean. We really enjoyed the artwork that was in our Casita and all around the property, much of it apparently done by one of the owners. The views are spectacular! We were able to take some very nice hikes right from the Blue agave without having to drive anywhere.

This was a dream vacation...very relaxing with perfect weather and the scenery was spectacular. I cannot say enough about how amazing not only the casita was but also the owners. They went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience. Awesome picture opportunities mixed with great hiking made for a wonderful vacation.
