What an amazing home and pool

  • 5 of 5

The property was everything that we thought it would be. The pool itself was amazing, and we were so happy to have experienced it. Seriously we have been asked by so many people about this house. I seriously think we should get a commision for the amount of referrals the home will receive haha.

Serene and tropical

  • 5 of 5

Home is expansive and great for large groups. If you love the sound of cicadas, you've found the right spot relaxing in the tranquil backyard.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

A group of ladies came for my 40th birthday and we all absolutely loved the house. The lush backdrop made for amazing photos! I felt like I was in Thailand. The best part is that the pool is SHADED by all the gorgeous trees!! What a score in the July heat. The beds were so comfortable. I didn't want to leave. :) I highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.

Lush, shady, secluded, tropical paradise!

  • 5 of 5

PROS: shady pool in AM and PM (gets some mid day sun), plenty of space to spread out around the house and exterior, grassy area for sun bathing, several patio lounge areas with fans and lights, 100% privacy fencing, gated, Balinese-like decor through out the entirety of the property, very comfortable beds and linens, fully stocked kitchen, friendly and helpful owner, very clean, kid friendly

CONS: (none)

OVERALL: Highly recommended, great for families, already planning our next vacation to this house!

Absolutely beautiful! We didn't want to leave the property. Very tranquil and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The property was as pictured. Very beautiful with lush trees, surroundings helping keep the overall temperature 10 degrees cooler in the middle of June. Grounds very private with automated entrance / exit gates and high walls. The house and accommodations were great. Note the "4th" bedroom with twin beds actually part of the master suite (converted closet?) so bathroom situation odd but workable if everyone knows each other! We loved our time here and will likely come again!!

Amazing property! Would definitely go back.

  • 5 of 5

After posting some pictures and videos from our trip this past Memorial Day weekend, friends have asked where we stayed because it looked so nice. Karen was great to work with and very accommodating. Everything ran smoothly. Place was well maintained, and there were plenty of things to do just lounging at the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.
