    Absolutely perfect, there is nothing we wanted for It was such an ideal place, solitude, no technology just peace and relaxation. The hot tub was fantastic and still hot the following morning for a hot tub in the rain. The house is well stocked and very comfortbable I will definitely stay again if they will have me
