About Us 

Bed and Breakfast

El Rocio Retreat has two Bed and Breakfast units and they are Casa Luna and Casa Jardin. Casa Luna is a 3-bedroom home that three of the bedrooms can be rented. Casa Jardin is a 1-bedroom cottage that will sleep a couple. Because the majority of our B & B clients are birders and because of the early hours they leave for their bird outing, we offer a serve yourself breakfast. We offer a menu to our guests that they check off the items that they wish to have for their breakfast. This includes eggs, bacon or sausage, fresh fruit, hot or cold cereal, toast, coffee, tea, juice and milk.
