This house is a magical place!

Sometimes the pictures & description overstate, but in case of Penelope's home, these pictures don't do it justice! The home is magnificent. It has everything and we just were swept away with the home's beauty and the great experience we had. From the outside, the house is covered with colorful plants, tropical flowers,beautiful climbing hydrangeas and ivy's and you can see and hear the waterfall! As you enter, the home is so beautiful and tastefully appointed. Her use of Pierre Deux wallpaper & color throughout the home is amazing, lovely furnishings and paintings that capture the owner's love of dogs and horses, and a big, homey French country kitchen with beautiful views.
There are both formal and informal spaces throughout the house depending on your mood & the moment. The living room is like a petite salon from Versailles; pocket doors open into the beautiful dining room where you feel like you are living in grand style. But the kitchen is my favorite room -- big, bright, a fabulous kitchen to cook in. There is a restaurant stove & a Delongi espresso machine for absolutely delicious coffee with the touch of a button, plenty of utensils, pots and pans to use and lovely dishes.
The upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs are beautifully appointed and beds very comfortable with beautiful linens and towels. The house has all the latest technology, computer/office room, a TV in every bedroom, Bose system & iPod for music. The owner, Penelope, is very lovely to deal and truly made our stay a magical experience. We can't wait to return again!
