I would not say it sleeps 25. The correct # would be 14. Adult couples would account for 10, 2 in each of the 5 bedrooms. The bunk room is right off the garage and it is really not a room. It is perfect for kids though. I would say 4 should sleep there. You could have them share the bottom bunk and make it 6. That would require kids sleeping together. We had 5 couples and 2 kids. It worked out perfect. 2 more kids would be fine in my opinion. Everything was excellent. Nothing to complain about. The elevator is a little tricky, so don't count on it. It works fine, just needs to be done correctly and that takes everyone knowing what to do. If one doesn't, it'll stay on a floor and not move. It is decorated great. Kitchen is awesome. Outside kitchen is awesome! Pool is perfect. Watching TV in the jacuzzi is cool. Have fun on your stay!
