We are Bob and Maggie Stiles from San Clemente, CA (check out our VRBO listing #228019 'Casa on Cazador) and we enjoy 'dual citizenship' between southern California and the Northwest where we enjoy summers at our home in Admiral's Cove near Coupeville on Washington's beautiful Whidbey Island.
Maggie's a warm weather gal and we both love the beautiful desert landscape and opportunities to enjoy sunny outdoor activities such as walking, golf and tennis.
We begin to relax the moment we walk into our entry courtyard and it doesn't take us long to unwind in the warmth of the soft desert air. We sleep like babies after our evening sojourn in the hot tub steps away from our patio. Being able to enjoy the sunny outdoors every day adds not only energy but, lots of wonderful vitamin D to our lives!
