We have stayed at Secret Garden before, but it has always been in the summer and the area can be quite busy. This time we came in October, and it was perfect. No vacation crowds, the weather was great and we even got a little rain. Which was ok, because we live in the desert, so it was a welcome site. The house was in great shape as always. The outdoor grill worked great. Actually used the hot tub this time, nice. We brought our three little dogs with us and they were in heaven with the creek area in the back. Can’t wait to return. Thank you for a great vacation. The only thing I would recommend to the owner, would be to put in some under counter lighting in the kitchen. It’s very dark.

Glenn Orloff, travel expert and CEO of Metropolitan Shuttle, offered this money-saving and time-saving tip: If you’re taking a taxi from the airport to your hotel, be sure to tell the driver that you want to go via Swenson Avenue and not through the airport tunnel,” he said. The airport tunnel seems faster because it connects to the freeway and has fewer lights. However, it’s several miles longer, and your cab fare is going to be more costly,” he said.
