Quiet residential zone with large lot and huge oak trees but loud party had noise complain from neighbor and police got called in. So loud party is prohibited as any other home should be. Specially after 10 pm. House is walking distance to small village that has breakfast, brewery, popular Spanish food restaurant , Star bucks also about 1/2 mile.. Rain forest feel Bridge are in walking distance.

The house was so great with such a beautiful setting. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Deer wandered through daily, and the area had plenty of stuff to keep us occupied.

Great house for a traveling team.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our experience in this beautiful home. The backyard was so lovely and the house was a good fit for 7 of us. We had some problems with the dishwasher, but the owner was very responsive to our needs. Would stay here again.

Beautiful yard not a beautiful experience

  • 2 of 5

The experience was not a very good one. We paid over $1k for one night and the home was in poor shape due to the prior renters trashing the house. We had requested to check in early months in advance. The home had not been cleaned well nor were we able to get in early yet due to no communication in this, we did arrive at the house only to find many cars and a mess. We then woke up our family at 2am since they clearly were not ready for us. The next day, the owner who was confused apparently, was not very professional when sending me an email and confused us for the renters who trashed her home. The house was nice but dull knives, dirty dishes in cupboards and overall NOT the quality expected for the price paid. We woould only request again if able to actually speak with them vs email. I travel internationally each month and have not had this type of experience in many years.

Lovely house - does not sleep 10 as advertised

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful house in a delightful setting but to say that it sleeps 10 is an exaggeration.
