    This place is amazing, its very spacious, pool is awesome and the house is just beautiful. Cecilia was great as well, she answered all the questions I had and did an awesome walkthrough of the house for us. We had a great time BBQing, hanging out by the pool and enjoying the summer with friends. Would highly recommend this place. 31 July 2017 - 17:16:00

    We were very pleased to stay in this lovely home. It is exactly as pictured...with a large kitchen, inviting family room and wonderful backyard/pool area. Terrific for a larger group or family. Cecelia was great to work with and very accomodating to our ever changing schedule and needs. Thank you! 10 August 2017 - 16:21:00

    Thank you so much Cecilia for sharing your beautiful home! From the moment we met you we felt so welcomed. Your home was the perfect fit for us. My daughter and her bridesmaids were able to get ready, giggle and have real girl time. In the evening they were enjoying the gas fire pit and anticipating the wedding. On the wedding day we were able to get amazing photos, from getting dressed, posing around the piano and having the first look in your beautiful garden. Cecilia, you helped make my daughters wedding special and one that will never be forgotten. 18 September 2017 - 19:29:00

    Cecilia was a wonderful, responsive host. The home is very large and great for entertaining a larger group. The outdoor space is stunning, you feel secluded with your own private oasis. I would definitely rent here again. 11 October 2017 - 17:16:00

    We had a girls night for 7 of us at this beautiful property. It's is gorgeous inside and out (unfortunately with the fires, we didn't get to spend too much time in the beautiful backyard). There was plenty of room for all of us and it was the perfect setting for our "slumber party". Cecelia is a great hostess and very responsive to phone calls. Thanks so much!! 14 October 2017 - 21:20:00

    We really enjoyed our family Thanksgiving at this home with plenty of space for our extended family. Amazing kitchen, gathering spaces and outdoors too. 25 November 2017 - 04:29:00

    This is a beautiful home in a nice location. The owner is nice and hospitable. I discourage anybody with little kids because it has a lot of beautiful antiques. My children are all above 12 so it worked out well. The only down side was a tenant that is not disclosed in a separate apartment and it needs a detailed cleaning. We could not use the pool because it's December, but it does have a beautiful back yard to enjoy in the summer months. I did not realy feel comfortable. There is no closet space to hang your clothes, we had no iron to iron our clothes for our event, and you have to hand wash everything. If the home felt cleaner and more inviting I would give it a 5. It felt more like a two star home for a five star price. 04 December 2017 - 19:05:00

    We held a team offsite here and it was absolutely perfect. The owner was flexible with the check in time and met us in the morning to show us around. The amenities were outstanding and the space is just beautiful. I highly recommend this property and we'll certainly keep it in mind for future offsite meetings - especially in summer so that we can use the pool. 26 January 2018 - 20:35:00
