  • Amazing property, great location and layout

    Amazing property, great location and layout. Swimming pool was a life saver with the heat we had and the great outdoor areas both covered and uncovered were ideal for a summer vacation. All amenities were in good condition and no issues what so ever. Highly recommend this place for future travelers to the area, especially good in summer!!
