The owners were incredibly helpful in providing overview information on the house/area and were generous with their time answering questions and making sure we had what we needed. The home was thoughtfully outfitted...what a treat to have a Mac & WiFi, lots for kids to do, as well as a kitchen that was ready for anything. We were amazed by the sweeping views and best possible location. We were relieved to find that it was a comfortable house - nice and clean and not a museum where we were afraid to touch things or sit on the furniture. We loved watching the shooting stars at night from the roof deck & being able to allow the kids to ride their bikes to get ice cream and have some independence. Living at this home was a pleasure and just easy. We hope to return!
