An excellent stay for our family. We were blown away by the wonderful service, and the excellent self-contained facilities. We wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was clean and well thought out. Thanks again.

We stayed one night in a 3 person Studio Room. The unit itself was very spacious and very clean. The owner is helpful, friendly and pleasant. The rooms are modern and plenty of room for us and our 10 year old. You could easily fit another fold out bed in the room if you had another child to fit in.
