We love this home! It’s beautiful, well laid out and very well stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The house, pool and garden is lovely! A few issues with lights to begin with, but they were quickly re-solved.

Our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grand-daughters joined us for 6 days and they would now like to make it an annual family event.

Kitchen is huge! Lots of room for multiple cooks without running into each other.

1 or 2 extra cutting boards would be helpful, but we managed with the 1 large one. Pretty much everything a person could need is here!

I had checked off “mountain view” on my list and there’s only one small corner where you can see any portion of a mountain. (Mountains and palm trees are important view items for me😁�)

When my husband golfed, I was very happy to stay home by the pool to read, swim and enjoy the quiet, private yard with music in the background. 👍�

Owner's Response: Hi Barbara: Thanks for writing back regarding your experience, and we are delighted you and your family enjoyed a wonderful vacation at the home. We are so glad you will be returning again for another stay. We will add your helpful suggestions to the list of continuing improvements to the home! We will also ask the landscapers to thin out the mature trees in the rear yard to afford an even better view of the western mountains for our next guest visits. Have a joyful holiday season and safe travels! Jeff Grohs

Perfect luxury vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute of our stay here. The owner and property manager were so cooperative and accommodating. The home was wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything we needed other than bathing suits and food was supplied. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare all our meals. The pool and spa were perfect and pool toys etc.. were also supplied. The location was great and we all felt so safe and comfortable. This is a very luxurious house but it felt so homey and comfortable. We will be back !!
