Gorgeous pool property and well stocked house
The highlight of this property is the pool and magnificent patio layout which are designed for spending the entire day outdoors in comfort and beauty. Well stocked is an understatement - were there 8 shade umbrellas? Everything high end quality. Full outdoor kitchen including dishwasher, ice machine, shower, bathroom, pool toys, cushioned couches, hot tub, Pool appropriate for all ages, with a series of wide steps at the shallow end providing good wading area for little kids and diving board and sitting ledge at deep end for adult relaxation.The properties plantings were as lushly tended and beautiful as the pool area - a garden paradise of lemon trees, specimen plants, rose bushes overlooking a private valley with mountains in the distance. Really spectacular setting.
Interior of house was well stocked and spacious, but not cozy homey. Good for serious cooks, even good knives, and in copious quantities. Very high end infrastructure and comfortable bedding. Oddity of no dressers in the bedrooms nor towel bars in bathroom nor bedroom curtains - inconsistent with a high end priced house.
Clearly a house that's used for large groups. Only 2 bedrooms (Master and guest) have doors. 3rd bedroom is a fancy dormitory set up, good for kids, can be separated with a curtain. 4th bedroom dorm style arrangement of beds , off living room, no door. Oh, I didn't mention the 2 guesthouses! Both adorable - and private - and clean and well appointed. One has bathroom, located down charming walking path from main house, but could be tricky to navigate at night; other is near house but has no bathroom.
A beautiful property, I would rent again. Our family - 2 grandparents, 2 adults, 3 little children (ages 6 and under) - were enchanted.
Just want to clarify that there are 3 proper bedrooms in addition to the den. All 3 bedrooms have doors as does the den - not sure how you guys missed this?
It is a Beautiful Property!!
The house accommodated our large family very well. The pool and spa area was gorgeous and we enjoyed the fire pit. We absolutely loved the den windows/doors opening completely and we enjoyed a couple meals out on the deck. The kitchen handled all our traffic including baby bottle stations! We liked the peace and quiet and especially the gorgeous view. We had a delightful time!
Great Retreat From City Life
We spent the week in this wonderful home with my parents and our two children (ages 7 & 1). The outdoor area is even better than advertised with a resort quality pool and pool furnishings (7 high quality pool umbrellas)! The yard and landscaping were immaculate with many producing fruit trees (lemons, oranges, apples). The house is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen and grilling patio were fantastic and we found ourselves staying in to grill (rare for us as we usually head out for dinners). The only thing to be aware of is this house is only setup with one "master suite". The setup was perfect for us with our varied family but renters looking for a multi-couple get away should be aware in case they are expecting an equal split. The one master is materially better than all other bedrooms. Overall this is an amazing house that provides a wonderful and relaxing experience both indoors and out. We could not be more pleased!
Breathtaking Vacation Spot - Mind Blowing!!!
My title might be overkill, but so is this house. Pictures really don't do it justice. You have to see it to believe it. The house is HUGE - it says sleeps 12, but it is still plenty spacious. I went up for my 37th birthday with friends and we had a fantastic time. Carlos, the property manager, was very accommodating, he checked in on us and made sure we had everything we needed.
I took the master bedroom suite (huge cal king bed!), which has its own private balcony and a walk-in shower that is bigger than most studio apartments in the city. There is also a bidet, so if you haven't tried one before now is your chance. Haha.
The kitchen is very large, we did a lot of cooking and BBQ'ing (there are two grills attached to the kitchen and another grill down at the pool!). Everything is top of the line. The toaster seriously has AI capabilities. It lowers and raises the toast for you. It's nuts. Plenty of whatever you need - cups, plates, utensils, citrus squeezers. Some bar stuff is not available (we brought our own muddlers and stirrers), but they did have shakers. So if you are serious about your cocktails, you may want to check in about that before you go.We ate our meals on the outdoor veranda. It overlooks the hills and is a perfect place to eat.
We hung out at the pool most of the time slurping on mojitos (hence the need for shakers) and having water gun wars with the house provided pool toys. There is a massive ice machine down by the pool, so no need to bring your own, as well as a small ice chest and a large ice jug with spout so you can have water at all times (in between said mojitos...). There i also an outdoor refrigerator, so that is great to chill your beer! The deck is incredible, tons of furniture to hang out on, and the fire pit was incredible late at night.
There is this really large lawn that we didn't even make it to. We had every intention to play croquet, but we sort of ran out of time - slash - were too busy doing nothing at the pool.
This place is great if you want to stay in and just enjoy the house. It wasn't hard to get to, but I found no reason to want to leave. It is perfect for a friends get together or a family reunion. We have already booked it for Thanksgiving and can't wait to get back.
I've never seen such a gorgeous rental property. Everything in and outside was fit for a queen and king. Whole property is spotless. I agree with other review that the pics don't do justice. We literally jumped for joy as we entered the house and walked around exploring the vastness and views. The views and nature around the property are a delight. The grounds are immaculate. The pool and hot tub are top notch. Lots of high quality appliances and all the amenities were high end. Kitchen fit for a gourmet chef, tons of pans and all you need to make any kind of meals.
If you have someone that needs some privacy or goes to bed early, the guest house is perfect. I stayed there and couldn't hear any noise from the house. Plenty of nice towels, blankets, every bathroom and kitchen amenity you can think of. Even a huge basket full of sunscreen if you forgot yours! Carlos the property manager was a joy to work with; reachable, very helpful and accommodating.
Amazing house, such a great weekend!!
The most amazing house we could've asked for. Spectacular views, great pool and hot tub, beautiful indoor/outdoor entertainment. Carlos, who was the property manager, was incredibly responsive and accommodating. Adults, baby and dog all had a wonderful time. Thank you so much for the best weekend!
