Cosy Home - Sunny location

 Great location, great view, very comfortable. Steep hill may deter some from walking to town and back. A little cobwebby, but generally clean. According to owner documents in the bach, we needed to: 1. provide our own linens, 2. run the dishwasher and wait for it to finish before leaving, 2. take out the garbage, 3. seek a place on our own to dispose the garbage, 4. turn off the hot water, 5. lower all shades. We questioned the mandatory $60 cleaning fee, esp as we are clean visitors. 

Stunning Views, All day Sun
