“I am short of superlatives for this beautiful house”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
people found this review helpful

We spend a couple of nights in this amazing house with the extended house and from the moment we arrived at the place, we never wanted to leave. We actually cancelled a few of our outdoor activities because we wanted to stay back and enjoy this gorgeous home.

This house sits on a hill with great views of the surrounding. The hours easily sleeps over 18 people and has tons of activities for everyone.

Pool table, outdoor hot tub overlooking the scenery, table games, lots of places to run around kept the kids busy.

I would not call it three bedrooms although it sleeps 18. Its 2 bedrooms and one overlooking room. Then you had 3 bathrooms.

If there was something that was annoying at the home it was a dog in the house next door. There was no fence and the dog did not cross the border (probably because it had a collar tazzing machine if it crossed the border) but still it was a bit annoying and scary to have kids run around on your lawn when there is a ferocious dog barking right next door.

I hope the letting agency takes care of this dog issue with the neighbors.

Otherwise it was a wonderful stay and I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
