Wonderful view, comfortable to relax in. We enjoyed our stay and loved the area. Kitchen is well equipped and its clean and cozy. The only downside is that WiFi is terribly slow and cell service is spotty at best. Not bad if you're looking to disconnect but I intended to work a day or two while there for an extended stay and had a tough time doing so. Owner was super responsive and gave some good recommendations. Would definitely stay again!
