The room was very nice and the views gorgeous. It was unclear to us that the rest of the house is locked up unless you rent the whole house. Important to know as there is very little open in the area.

This was a wonderful place to stay while on our journey. Bed was superb, comforters were divine. My only issue was that the room I booked based on the photos on the booking page was not the one we got. That was a bit misleading and disappointing. But I did enjoy the room I had, just wish it had been the one I booked.

It was sit but the pretty waterfall. Nice view with the room. Comfortable beds, clean room, nice shower. They had everything we needed. There was a guest car parked in front of our unit and blocked our view. Which was not pleasant little bit but I just mentally erased it from the view.

When we checked in, they have a lock box in front of each room. The instructions they gave us provided the wrong room. We ended up in an awkward situation with people staying in our assigned room. We called the property owner and he explained that their systems were not working properly and did the same to other guests. Why was I not noticed of this issue before check in if the owner was aware??? He gave us a new room and when we got in, the electricity was not working except for the bathroom. So we had to call again and at this point it was 11pm and we were both tired from traveling all day. They had to send out someone to troubleshoot the issue and that took an additional 45 minutes and they were unsuccessful. So we went the whole night with no electricity. The worst part is the owner didn't offer any money off our stay for the inconvenience and just said there was nothing they could do until the next day but we were checking out.
