Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, it was everything we needed and more than we expected, peace and nature, just perfect! Max and Ann were wonderful and loving host and very accommodating. The rental was very cozy, and had everything you will need to stay within a farm atmosphere. yet very contemporary. it was kept very clean and all our essentials were at hand.. Our time was amazing , everything I needed, some R & R in the middle of nature and away from the daily rat race.. Thanks Max and Ann and Champ!

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here! Is is a wonderful place to do nothing. Yes, it is centrally located to many attractions, but why leave the provided pool? Anne and Max were gracious hosts.

Beautiful property. Quiet and serene.

Loved hearing the rooster every morning and watching the horses graze. Definitely paradise found. Highly recommend if you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and want to commune with nature! House was adorable and provided everything you needed. Great fenced area if you have pets. Loved it!

What a special place for relaxation and enjoying nature; rolling green acres, peacocks calling and horses on every paddock. Quiet, comfortable and pet friendly. Definately will come back to see Anne and Max.
