5 views and location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful week visiting my son before he deployed. We all thoroughly enjoyed the views from EVERY room in the house. The location is great, plenty to do and places to eat. Fixing meals at the house were easy and fun. There is nothing we would change.

We look forward to coming back to the house for another visit.

Beautiful home and view!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at this house! We were 6 adults and fit very comfortably. We loved sitting around having coffee in the mornings while enjoying the view! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals for the 6 of us. We would definitely stay again!

This is a wonderful and beautiful home. It has great views and allows for privacy. We enjoyed the walk into town and the local food shops. The owner is attentive and very nice. We stayed here for Thanksgiving to visit our son in the Army. Had a great time and loved the area. You will not be disappointed with this rental. We loved it and had a great time.
