November 2021

We had a great 5 days for a family reunion there. Perfect set up. Loved that each of the bedrooms had its own bath and there were none that were less desireable. A delightful stay overall. Wonderful house.


October 2021

A beautiful home with all the amenities! Beds were so comfortable, and our stay was great!


October 2021

Beautiful house, as good as photos. Nice common areas for large groups to meet up- in the house, patio/balcony, and shared plunge pool. Also lots of privacy and comfort in all the bedrooms. Ample off street parking. True luxury experience.


September 2021

Beautiful homes, great location. Every single room has a private full bathroom which was absolutely amazing. The house was very clean and cutely furnished. There was also way more parking available than we realized, which was great! Be mindful of the video cameras set up in the front and back of the houses and the noise detectors within the house. We felt like we had very little privacy on one of the back decks and I was constantly worried that the tv or speaker was too loud. Overall we had a wonderful time but I was extremely stressed out about the potential noise violations or the noise ordinance violation fine that we were threatened with even though it was 8pm at night which was well before the 10pm quiet hours.
