This accessible location (always plenty of free parking) is indeed a converted residence. It is very relaxing. I get there early so that I can indulge in their little amuse-bouches and get in the right mood.

I tried La Residencia due to a Groupon deal, and it was great. Marisol was my manicurist, and she did a fantastic job. Went back for other services, and all the staff is very friendly.

La Residencia is expensive--expensive manicures, facials, products. But let's face it (tee hee): this spa offers some of the best services around. The staff is top-notch and you'll be treated like a queen--offered tea and cookies and made to feel at home in the comfy...More
