"My large family stayed at this home and really enjoyed our time. Gorgeous views, spacious rooms for hanging out, and the house has several different levels, so kids can sleep in one section while adults are playing games and laughing in another.
Liviu is really good with communication and always responds quickly to messages. That is a huge plus in my opinion.
TONS of natural light
Big outdoor deck with a metal fence
Great view of mountains/golf course
Quiet, peaceful environment
A study and reading room for reflection or reading
Lots of DVDs and some books
Two kitchens on different levels, so food prep can happen quickly
I have to nitpick to say negative things, and each guest has certain things that they care about or prefer, so these things may not even be an issue for other guests.
-Steep sloped driveway (which can't be helped due to the terrain) may be scary for some drivers and difficult for unskilled manual transmission drivers
-The steep roads driving up the mountain to the house were very taxing for 4-cylinder Camrys with even light cargo/few passengers, so we had to leave a few cars at the base of the mountain and use the SUVs for a few extra trips to ferry people up and down
-The wifi was very inconsistent and not enough for internet usage, so computers/netflix/facebook/etc... were not an option. This house and location are a place you definitely would want to visit to get away from computers and the busyness of everyday life, but since a few of us are self-employed we were unable to do any of our admin/business upkeep work at the house and had to drive approx. 25 mins. for internet access. The mountains also blocked AT&T phone reception, so several of us were completely and hopelessly off the grid while at the house. Again, being in the home and away from everything was great and I treasure the memories we made at this beautiful place, but it was difficult to keep current with potential clients and work emergencies and such.
-I think our family was one of the larger groups that have stayed here and so we used all the towels that were at the house. There is a good washer/dryer and laundry is no problem, but you may consider bringing a few extra towels is you have 15+ people in your party.
-The bathrooms didn't have shower curtains, so shower water splashed onto the floor. That may be a European architectural thing, but it just necessitated an extra towel on the floor to catch that splashing"
