We had a really wonderful time and the house was everything we could ask for.
The home was beautiful and spacious. We loved that is was so well stocked with everything needed. The managers were the most responsive and helpful of any I have ever worked with. We were a little disappointed that the misters on the patio did not work since they were included in the property description.
Really perfect weekend, and a perfect house. Only thing I'd suggest is to change out the oven... it was a little hard to use.
We stayed at the Mel House for my birthday and it was great! There was one hiccup that was handled brilliantly by Luxury Retreats. The hot tub wasn't working properly. We texted David and he had someone out the next AM to fix the problem. Overall, our experience was amazing and I would recommend this place (and management company) to anyone! Thanks!!
We want to thank David and his team for organizing everything at the house. The set up and house layout was perfect for our group. The kitchen counter size allowed for group prep and we enjoyed the different dining areas of the house.
