5/5 Excellent

Great house!
This house was perfect for a family; we really appreciated how easy the rental process was, and that the house was well stocked with kid-friendly dishes, games, etc... Location was nice, close to National park and Oakland. The king mattress in the upstairs suite could use an update, as it felt a bit like we were rolling to the middle of the bed. Wonderful house overall!!

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous house
This was a beautiful home away from home. The bedrooms get very warm when the heat is turned on. That is our only small complaint.
