    Unbeatable location, gorgeous original bach with everything you need. Perfect for a family of four. We had a wonderful time and hope to return.

    This was an old 1970s style bach, and we loved it for that reason. It is a quiet and lovely spot. It is also pet friendly and that was the main reason why we initially stayed. We found it to be clean and comfortable. Thank you so much for everything.
