"I rented this home for a family get away over the 4th of July holiday for my family of 4. This home is amazing! The home is secluded and quiet which was an absolute must for us. Having rented vacation homes before, my husband and I were prepared to be underwhelmed from the photos vs what we saw in real life. In reality, we were pleasantly surprised with how much we loved the house! Photos do not do the home justice. The house is decorated beautifully in a way that looks great but is still inviting and not overly stuffy. This is important to us as we have 2 small children and do not want to worry every second about our kids touching something they shouldn't. All bedrooms are decorated well, have remote controlled ceiling fans and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is top of the line and has everything you need to cook and entertain. Candidly, we spent the majority of our time in the salt water pool and deck area. The pool is located in the front of the house but is very, very private. Access to the main yard is controlled by a locked gate so you need not worry about surprise visitors while you're catching rays. Everything about the pool area was fantastic from the covered patio with ceiling fan to the comfortable pool chair, to outdoor grill. One special perk to this house is that there is a patio on the roof with several seating areas so you can enjoy the view. We did some star gazing and watched fireworks across the valley. Aside from grocery shopping, there is really no need to leave this house.
While the house was wonderful, I cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful customer service we received throughout the rental process and during our stay. Bill, the owner was very responsive and kindly responded to the myriad of questions I kept firing at him. Despite me having access to an app that identified restaurants and activities in the area, Bill shared some of his favorites with us. Christina, the house manager was a gem. She did everything she could to ensure we were taken care of throughout our stay without intruding on our mini vacation. The pool was scheduled for maintenance on the Friday of our stay and she took special care to reach out to the service company to advise we had children in the pool and asked them to take special precautions with the chemicals they were using. Had we experienced any problems, I am confident that she and Bill would have addressed them immediately.
We will definitely be back!"
