Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in this property as a family and were pleasantly surprised on the friendly neighbours, size and location of this property. Although lacking some of the finer details and kitchen supplies for a family who stayed in to eat we made do. We had 2 dogs and the outside area was plenty big enough for them to be comfortable although the front fence is not as secure as we would have liked. All was fine though. It should be noted that a new couch was purchased as was a very comfortable queen bed for one of the rooms rather than a futon. Also the day we arrived it had been 38 degrees and we couldn't get the upstairs bedrooms below 30 degrees all night with only one fan and no AC upstairs. The other cooler days were fine

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great short stay at this property. Great location, and a good little property and exactly what we expected from its description on stays. There was a stale smell in the kitchen but everything seemed clean so I'm not sure where this came from. If not for this, it would have been 5 stars all the way.
