I had the delightful opportunity to stay at Origin with a group of friends and our children... Origin at Rancho de San Juan provided the perfect setting for families to share meals together and socialize as well as luxurious comfortable private casitas for quiet family time. The children were able to roam freely within the safety of the expansive picturesque property and experience the sacredness of the Ra Paulette art caves with Jill's guidance and knowledge. Jill's gracious hospitality as well as her sense of beauty and style was woven throughout the oasis she created providing a memorable getaway for our family and friends. With much gratitude, Karyn, Aspen Colorado July, 2015 Santa Clara
