Watch for snakes.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. Best jumping off point for the park and fishing the Merced. Unfortunately our last night our dog was bitten by a large rattler, likely in the bush by the bird feeders. The birds were awesome but the ground squirrels and rabbits attracted to the dropped seed definitely attracted the snake. Closest antivenin is in Mersed. Awesome vet. Still loved the stay. The dog will survive.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

The house and location are fantastic. Our only complaint is that the pool could have been cleaner. A pool cover could help keep all the leaves out.

Peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The area is really peaceful, yet close to town for eating out. Lots of turkeys and hummingbirds to watch. It was great. Thank you!

Great Couples or Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here with our doggies. The property had everything we needed. The only thing is that we suggested that they place curtains in the front area of the house as it gets really dark and you cannot tell if anyone is looking into the property and it would be great for secured privacy.
