She was a beauty!

  • 4 of 5

Close to mountain, had a great time, great layout and it was all done under a Welsh flag... Go figure... One of the best ways to ring in the new year!

Perfect for a large group or families

  • 5 of 5

Although I felt like we were in a massage parlour with the layout of the rooms, the overall layout of the house was amazing. Plenty of space and privacy can be had at all locations.

You must however ensure that the tenants downstairs below the property are away, because the place does carry noise due to it's vast enormity and layout.

Great property manager to deal with, and relatively quick to respond. The only caution I would say is that you are required to put a large Damage Deposit (out of pocket, no exceptions) or you face interest by using your credit card. It will increase the overall cost by roughly 10% if you are unable to pay off, which unfortunately not all of us have $5000 sitting around.
