We'll be coming back!

We’ve stayed in a few vacation rentals, and this one was our favorite. Most places are set up like a hotel, with the few amenities that you need to get by. This was like a home away from home. It has everything you need. All the dishes and appliances that you need, as well as books, games, magazines, etc. The pond water is actually blue, which gives it a great tropical feel, and the fountain makes the most wonderful and peaceful waterfall sound all day. It was wonderful to just sit on the upper deck and enjoy the scenery. The owner told us about all of the things to do in the area, and even drove his army jeep back and let my boys sit in it for a picture. We will be coming back next year!!

A perfect stay

Absolutely wonderful – the exact kind of place we were hoping for. Pond, boat, water fountain, nature, fish and turtles and one very accommodating cabin host.
