I was in the area on a "working vacation" and brought my dad and dog. The house is beautifully laid out and decorated. My dad had his own bathroom and his bedroom overlooked the pool. He loved the angle of the morning sun and spent every afternoon poolside reading or dangling his feet in the pool. There were some hiccups in my work plans so I got to hang out at the house a little more than planned and I just loved it! Owner Ann and her daughter were wonderfully accommodating and so warm and friendly. We had a great email exchange going and I loved chatting with her. We really enjoyed the lovely welcome basket after driving for 3 days, it was nice to have some food waiting. Bridie the Wonder Dog loved the dog run and had a blast chasing lizards. You don't need to bring anything but your bathing suit and maybe a couple of nice outfits for on the town fun. Anything you need is provided. Ann even put together a beautiful binder outlining how to use the house and the pool features, pamphlets for day excursions, restaurants and other fun places to go. Fantastic location, near everything, and we had a wonderful time. I am so glad we chose this home, it was perfect!!!!
