It reminds me of a Four Seasons property: that is how high the quality of decor, furnsihings, line and towels are. The owners even have a gigantic basket of oils, soaps, shampoos, lotions and potions to choose from. Forget a toothbrush? It's there. SLIPPERS? Razors? Toothpaste? ALL THERE. It has a sumptuous feel but is not ostentatious or uncomfortable. On the contrary, the home just feels like one big dreamy spa visit! The owners take their role in your vacation very seriously: recmmending spots to try, asking for suggestions on how to improve the home. It is a very special place and I implore you to book for next year and begin dreaming today.... Thank you for your hospitality and kindness.
