The first thing I noticed was how beautifully the house was decorated. I only wish mine looked this great! It was stylish, but really livable and comfy too. Lots of places to sit, lounge, and stare at the view. Did I mention the view? We sat and had cocktails on the deck while admiring the sunset over the wooded valley. It doesn't get any better. There were lots of little touches that I appreciated as a long-time renter on VRBO. The kitchen was well-stocked, with all of the appliances and utensils you keep at home but don't usually get in a rental (Cuisinart, anyone?). There were lots of cooking pans, mixing bowls, glassware and tableware, so no need to worry about feeding a large crew. There were fans in each bedroom, which is great for white noise even when it's not hot out. The TV was big and nice, with lots of options for streaming TV. The bedding was super comfy. The pool was nice and clean, and in such a spectacular setting. And the information they provided about the house and the area was really helpful. The house made our trip extra special. We would definitely come back any time!
