A Grand New Year!
Myself and 5 other adults spent the last few days of 2012 relaxing in this gorgeous home! Overall we had a wonderful experience! The home is absolutly stunning, but there are a few things to be aware of before booking this property. When we arrived we met the caretaker and she showed us around the house and explained "all" the rules and there were plenty! Don't touch, don't use, etc. etc! The kitchen was well appointed but very unorganized and we had a difficult time finding the basics. There are two small dishwashers, but the plates were too big to fit properly, so we tried to wash them by hand, but there was no dish liquid. The trash drawer was broken and difficlut to use, not to mention very, very dirty. The bathrooms looked clean, but all three showers still had used bars of soap full of hair in them. The sheets and towels are not white, therefore have not been bleached, which creeped me out a bit. The front downstairs bedroom had a nice king size bed, but it had a very soft memory foam mattress thrown on top, the kind you buy at Costco, we had to finally take it off all together to avoid sinking into holes. I would also not recommend this home if you have small children. The house is cluttered with expenisive breakables and artwork and made things feel very unkept and dusty. Besides the few negatives, there are also a lot of great things to mention! The house has an elevator which was great seeing as how my mom had just had foot surgery and was nonweightbearing. The hottub and deck were awesome and worked well! The very large flatscreen tv in the main family room was perfect for watching football and movies! Overall this was a great place, just be aware of the small things mentioned above before you book. If the owners take care of changing out the towels and linens to white, get a new matteress downstairs and complete a more thorough cleaning between guests, it will be top notch!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your four star review. We are happy to work for a five star review on your next visit. We take all guests' comments seriously and vow to always live up to your expectations. Matters of housekeeping should always be dealt with on an immediate basis and the housekeeper's cell phone is always on call for your comfort and security, as she takes her job seriously about showing the intricacies of the elevater, fireplaces, hot tub, etc. I am very happy that you enjoyed the large TV, and hot tub, but I am sure your biggest memory is that of your family gathering in our beautiful setting to bring in the New Year.
