  • Great spot. Clean and spacious!


    We loved this place. Stayed for 4 days. The house had everything we needed (besides A/C). Would stay here again! 🙂

    Awesome stay, if I had to mention 1 negative thing is that I was planning to bake and there was no hand mixer or cupcake baking tray, but if that’s the only bad thing I had to say, you know it was great, I’m planning on going back. Great stay!

    Manager's Response:

    From the owner: "The hand mixer and baking trays were in the kitchen cabinets. However, we appreciate the guest’s feedback and will stock up on cupcake-baking trays. Thank you."

  • Comfortable place!


    We were a party of 6 and there was plenty of room for us in the place. It was decorated nicely and was well appointed.

    Had a fantastic time on our 4 day vacation.... the house is big and beautiful, very cozy, and stocked with everything you need. It's well kept and clean. The team in charge of this place is very friendly and quick to respond, even the owner is very involved and will respond to emails, calls and texts. The whole experience makes you feel at home. Would stay again in the near future.
