We ended up needing a last minute place to stay and the owner accepted us with ease. The entire transaction was seamless and so comforting.
The rooms and view were absolutely incredible. Not even 24 hours after leaving, we booked our next stay but for longer We can’t wait to come back!
We raved, and a few friends also booked their stay.
The entire experience was wonderful.
