A Perfect Getaway.
To be honest, we were a little worried after reading the two one star reviews from earlier this year. Because of that I called the owner and was assured that the issues that the previous renters had were taken care of. Once we arrived and checked the home out we were totally relieved - it was wonderful! His cleaners did a wonderful job - the stovetop, the grill, bed and bathrooms - all perfect. Starting with the deck and deck furniture, I almost wish we hadn't had so many day trips planned as it was so inviting. Great views and solitude from the deck overlooking the squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits playing. One squirrel is exceptionally friendly and came to within a couple of feet of my wife while sitting on the deck. The deck furniture is very high quality with nice cushions. Easy to spend a few hours on. We had no problem whatsoever with the grill. It was clean and the tank was full when we arrived. It did a great job of grilling everything we put on it - that is all I ask of a grill. The living room / kitchen / dining room are one large room so visiting with our friends was easy as we took turns cooking and cleaning up. The dining room table has a great view as does the living room. The owner has even equipped the dining room with a wine rack. We did have a small problem with that however. Every morning there seemed to be two less bottles than the night before. The sofa and two chairs in the living room are incredibly comfortable (especially the two chairs which are faced toward the large window over the sofa) The natural gas stove in the living room was perfect for the cool mornings. Be sure to have a good look at the control panel though as we found a fan switch that made it even more appealing. The kitchen separates the dining and living room and is very well stocked with condiments, spices and other things that we sometimes forget to pack. The plates, silverware glassware etc. were all of very good quality for a rental. My wife and I slept in the second bedroom and our friends slept in the Master. Our bed was wonderful and our friends had no complaints about theirs either....and I think they would have said something if they had had had a less than good sleep. Yes the shower if pretty small, but in the scheme of things, how long are you in it? All in all, I can't find a fault with this property. It is fairly priced and gave the 4 of us 5 days of wonderful relaxation. Now if I could just figure out where the wine disappeared to???
