Amazing house, with a couple of footnotes on our stay

The house is beyond spectacular. Wraparound distant valley views, spacious and very cool layout, tons of space, good WiFi and giant TV, very well-stocked kitchen, easy-to-use, warm pool that the kids went nuts over!
On our first morning--a Saturday, and our wedding day--we were awakened at 7:20am by the sound of a gas-powered weed whacker outside our bedroom window. We asked the gardener to stop; the property caretaker was insistent that the gardener continue. We finally called the owner, who was aghast and apologetic and made the problem go away.
There was no hot water for showers for the first two days. When the owner finally returned our call, she was, once again, deeply apologetic. She sent the propane company over to rectify the problem immediately, she offered us a late checkout, and treated our entire wedding party to drinks at the restaurant where she knew we were having brunch. That was a wonderful gesture.
Assuming you don't run into these unfortunate one-time events, and as long as you don't mind the 10-minute, steep, winding road up and down the mountain, you'll absolutely love this place.
