Some friends and I (party of 6) rented this property last weekend. As the title notes, the pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this property. Located on top of a hill, the views are spectacular. They truly are amazing. The house is well turned out and proportioned, and made for a very comfortable stay. The owner is an interior designer, and it is very apparent inside the house. While many vacation rentals have run down, mismatching or cheap furnishings inside, that is not the case here. Lots of care and thought have been put into this property. Additionally, the beds in the three properties are all very comfortable, and the linens provided were plentiful and of good quality. The kitchen is well-stocked and ready to be cooked in.
Our party spent a lot of time outdoors for the weekend we were there. The pool is a great place to hangout with friends and relax. There were several outdoor seating areas to sit around and enjoy the breathtaking views. Additionally, as the property is quite large in acreage, there are many trails and valleys and outdoor areas to hike and explore. The property has a barbeque (and the owners provided charcoal) and we had a wonderful time cooking burgers and hot dogs on the grill. Also, the owners have provided lots of chopped wood and kindling that was able to be used in one of the two fireplace/stoves in the house. We made a fire in the living room each night we were there (yes, it was June, but still chilly at night), and the ambience provided made a great area to play games at night.
The owner, Susie, and her husband were very nice. All of our dealings with Susie prior to rental were very prompt and pleasant. Once we arrived at the property, Susie and her husband met us and showed us around, answering any questions we had and providing some good suggestions for activities.
I guess the most important question to ask oneself after visiting a rental property is would one return. For us, the answer is an enthusiastic yes. This property truly exceeded our expectations. The views were amazing, the house was, charming, and I can honestly say we had a great time at this property.
