Property was peaceful, beautiful, and just what we expected when we booked.

  • 5 of 5

Property was peaceful, beautiful, and just what we expected when we booked. We were not disappointed. Lovely location, all the amenities needed to just escape from the concrete jungle. Would definitely go back to same place. I just wish we had more time to spend there.

This is one of the best houses I've ever stayed in. It has such a beautiful view and grounds and we felt we were in paradise. Spent most of our time on the fabulous deck.
