    Would recommend for a big family as it is a very great location and the house is more than big enough. Only downfall was the small fridge and kitchen for such a big place.

    Note cyclists - STarry Nights is on top of a hill! We thought we could cycle to Falls Bistro for dinner but this is not a great idea! If you are riding the trail, just make sure you don't count on cycling back to the bach after a night out.
