Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We first booked this house about 6 years ago. We have been very happy here every time we stay. Owners are great people to rent from. If we had a problem they fixed it immediately. They are animal lovers and they treated our Sadie like one of the family. Will try to rent here as long as we can. Love the place and the location.
