  • Wonderful location

    Wonderful location. Enjoyed the modern furnishings. So wonderful to have a place to stay and take our dog. Appreciated the 2 large fans with the extremely hot weather. When the weather got very cold, the duvet in the bunk room was not enough, suggest you take a warm blanket. The queen size bed had enough blankets. The use of a electric plug board sitting next to a cooking ring is concerning. Would highly recommend this house as a lovely place for the holidays. We plan to come back again.
