Wow, what a place to experience!! From the moment you drive in, you know you're in for something out of the ordinary. Beautiful home, with all the modern conveniences including the best estate assistant, Elvis!! Perfect for families or a small group of friends, it sleeps 10 people. My advice is to stay a minimum of 2 nights to truly appreciate the home and it's surroundings. Don't forget your suntan lotion and insect repellent, you are, after all in nature. We'll be back again and again!!!

"cleanliness is next to Godliness. "

the entire house is beautiful, the only challenge experience was the drainage system not working. the water was coming from the shower drain pipes and filling the shower in the main bedroom. this is a maintenance issue that can be addressed. A proper maintenance/cleaning of the house is also key (showers, bathroom and bedrooms)
