Maria and her family are wonderful; I've been taking my little Willow-Bee to her for over 3yrs now and we are extremely happy. We feel very safe and comfortable when Willow is with her.

Maria was great! We got daily updates and Dexter loved playing with her 2 dogs, along with some other dog vacay visitors. All the playing tired him out each night!

She was very calming of our worries as we were first-time dog-vacay users, and put us at ease about leaving him for the weekend. It was a no-brainer to use her after the first meet-n-greet.

Looking forward to using Maria again!

Muy dog always enjoy going to Maria's house forma boarding. Maria and her family are very good with dogs.
Maria was wonderful, I had an unexpected business trip come up and she was able to book me at the last minute. Not only that but when the call came in that my stay away was to be extended she let me extended her stay and took away the huge headache away of trying to find someone to pick her up. She had clean facilities, a lovely large backyard for lots of playing, quick communication and was willing to follow my feeding/ routine requests. When I went to pick up my pup she was, happy, and well cared for.

All and all it was a wonderful experience. I will be using her in the future for all my doggy's needs.

Thank you again Maria!
(Hopefully next time I will be able to give you a better heads up!)

This trip my wife and I went Vegas; we lost Big. It wasn't so bad because we knew Willow-Bee was the Big winner staying with Maria and her family!!!!
Another amazing Vacay for my little Willow-Bee, just as expected. Thanks Maria & Family!!!

I almost don't want to tell you all how great Maria is; I don't want her too book up. She has also been so flexible with drop off and pick up times. Thanks Maria, see you next time.
Maria and her family are great. I truly am comfortable leaving my little girl with them
Maria was very good at taking care of Simba. He seemed very happy there!
This was a very last minute reservation and they accepted our pup with open arms! Fairly big backyard and our puppy was pooped when he came home :). Service was great and I highly recommend Maria. I will definitely be booking her for the future!
Willow always loves staying with Maria.
Flux came home happy, but also exhausted from her big weekend away. They were very helpful with my picking up and dropping off schedule, especially since I had to come get her by 7am on Saturday.
It felt really good to know that our dog spent Christmas with a great family and had a yard to run around in.
Maria did a great job with our dog. Our dog wasn't dead tired or super hyper when we picked her up, so we know Maria treated her just right.
Ginger spent a week with Maria and came back home happy and exhausted. Maria (and her kids) are hands on dog people and love their four-legged guests. Will use again.
Maria and her family gave our dogs a warm and loving home away from home. From the first meet and greet until the night we picked up our pups, Maria inspired well deserved trust and confidence. And her children are as pet savvy as she is, giving our dogs lots of love and attention.

Our dogs were happy and well cared for - which became clear by the great shape they were in when we returned. Plan to use her again ... and again.

Maria was great with our pug Eli.
Maria is awesome!!! Murray and Oreo came back in great spirit and it's a plus that she's lives close.
I do daycare with Maria and she's amazing! She responds quickly to emails and texts, is laid back and accommodating and has great doggy facilities. And the best thing about it is within 15 minutes of being home my 10 month old dog is snoring.
Maria was absolutely wonderful. She is so friendly and I felt very comfortable leaving Lily with her. You can tell just by spending a few minutes with her that she knows what she is doing! Picked Lily up last night and Lily was happy and healthy! Will definitely use Maria again next time I leave town!

Molly came back in good spirits and Maria was very easy to work with.
Maria and her family were great, I got a quick response within a few hours after inquiring about a meet n greet. They have a large house with a fenced in backyard for the dogs to play. They took care of my pup like it was one of their own. Highly recommended!

After moving to California, we needed to find a new "vacation home" for our dog, Mick, when we go out of town. Maria was a great find! She was easy to coordinate with, and flexible with our schedule. Her house, yard, and family seemed to be a great fit, and Mick had a good time!
Thanks Maria!!

My dog is naturally affectionate, and would do well just about anywhere, but the connection I (and she) felt with Maria and her family was instantaneous and easy. And reciprocated. I was totally at ease leaving my dog in another's care. On another note, this was my first experience with dog vacay, and so wished I had known of this years ago!

Our dog had a wonderful week with Maria! She kept in contact every few days via text to let us know our pup was doing great, it was so nice to have piece of mind while we were away on vacation that Roary was safe and sound with Maria and her family!
