"First, the owner was a pleasure with work with. I think that is the first thing anyone should consider when renting a home for a vacation; how well the owner works with their tenants.
Anyone who is looking on VRBO knows that there are so many houses to pick. If you are lucky enough to land on this property, I recommend that you end your search as your perfect vacation home rental has been found.
The home itself was a blast. I was able to use each space of the home so well that it made the home feel huge. Good kitchen, the only need for improvement is the stove top. Every basic kitchen need will be found, even a pizza slicer! The Dining room positioned well next to the kitchen, patio with gas BBQ, and a great view of the marina. living room has AMAZING lighting for evening relaxation; it has two patios, one that opens to the mountains, the second that opens to the marina. created such a nice breeze and view.
the master bedroom is extremely private, spacious, and unique with a spiral stone shower, private toilet closet, and secluded sauna. Very nice view of the mountain.. if you don't like the sun to grace your face in the morning, bring some eye guards as the skylight directly above the bed is either a blessing or a curse depending on your presences.
Downstairs is where the fun is, as well as a second master suite, and a junior suite. I personally slept in the downstairs master suite with views of the marina and private Safari bathroom. the junior suite is perfect for those who like a darker sleeping environment. it has a good private bathroom and nice built in day bed for getting away, reading a book, or even an extra space for a small one to sleep.
The fun.. built in bar with nice flat screen TV, pool table, two day beds, access to the third patio with a ping pong table (didn't use) and the SPA! the wine cellar is a nice feature to look at, but for short term visits it is not likely you will need to use.
having the rare ability to rent PPV on your own was great. you can use a personal credit card to order and it was so easy to take care of (just get the receiver information from the TV and call the number provided on the station you want) Other properties refused this ability which is shame.
you may wonder about the bathrooms as there are no photos, take it from me, you will be pleased. there are plenty of showers, toilets, and sinks.
Overall, this will surely be an annual vacation rental. I won't be looking for another property."
