    We really liked this place, the house itself is great. It could use a few standard things like a sponge/scrubber, a hair dryer, some coffee to go with the keurig is usually pretty standard too. But it’s a very cute house and I absolutely love the jungle vibes and all the plants.

    That said, as others have mentioned, the fees for this place are absolutely insane. The nightly price is nowhere near what is listed because the fees are so incredibly high. Our fees ended up being 40% of the total cost. We spent way way more than we wanted to in the end and I don’t think I would book again because the fees are just wild.
