1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Outside pool area is great. Room quality is not up to standards. No hair dryer, toiletries or iron were in the room. Mattress on bed is horrible and needs to be replaced. Blood stains on the mattress cover. Poor girl on site has to clean and take care of everything by herself.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
This place has a very "silent pool party at my rich friend's house" vibe. Because it's so small, it's an extremely intimate space, which can make interacting with fellow travelers pleasant or awkward--truly a case-by-case experience. When we went, there were two pools available, they were lovely, as promised. The place seems to be a little bit understaffed, however--it was hard to get towels replaced, and there never seemed to be enough breakfast foods for the number of people staying, which seemed odd. The rooms were also curiously furnished, with a little bit less of everything than you might expect (we only had two sleeping pillows, which seemed weird). In number 2, where we stayed, there was no overhead light and nothing that could pass for a reading lamp, so at night we had to rely on the light from the kitchenette and two very dim basket lamps when we wanted to read at night.

A Tranquil Getaway
While the Good House may not be everyone's cup of tea, for anyone looking for a relaxing getaway, it is an ideal location. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and the grounds are an oasis of calm and beauty. The Good House is an intimate environment where you can really connect with your neighbors over a delicious breakfast. The warm pool and even warmer tub feature the best water in the world. Bring a good book and really unplug. The rooms are basic and charmingly rustic, so if you are looking for 5-Star accommodation, look elsewhere. That said, there's little reason to be in your room beyond sleep time. There are plenty of shady outdoor spots to catch a quiet nap in a lounge chair or hammock. The sauna is top-notch. Except for breakfast, there is no food service on premises, and local options are limited. Plan accordingly. All in all, if you really are craving rest, relaxation and a no-fuss vibe, the Good House is your place.
