The property is very safe with game wardens monitoring the estate on foot and on horseback 24/7, all you and your family have to do is relax or take off on on one of the many exiting sports and enjoy your stay with us.
The views were simply astounding. I could set on the patio all day and just stare at the mountains and watch the wildlife. Upon arrival, we found a very clean and well-prepared home for us. We like the layout with two bedrooms at one end of the house and the other bedroom at the other end, it allowed for some separation. Very clean and well equipped. We were unable to take advantage of all the outdoor options available due to the weather, but we are anxious to go back and take in the hiking trails. Communication with the owner prior to arrival was excellent along with the local property manager. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return again.
We had a wonderful stay, the house is very well equipped and the views are spectacular... There is so much to do around the estate and wonderful hiking trails even within the estate itself. You will definitely be seeing us again!!!
