Maki also makes the front of the house look easy and the process is all invisible as a guest. Most impressive of all is that they are running this successful... More

Two nights at Finca Las Encinas was a moment in time I will never forget. The warm greeting of owners, Clive and Maki made you feel immediately at home. This was then followed by the sweet faces of their smiling five year old, Cei, and two adorable dogs. From that moment, I knew I would be most comfortable spending time... More

If you think you can cook - think again. Our 3-night stay with lessons each evening from Clive has changed the way I think about our eating and cooking habits. We learned how to make some gorgeous sauces, baked fish in a flash, stuffed chicken breasts and restaurant-style desserts, all with minimum fuss and clear instructions. Clive's wife Maki who...
