Thank you for making this home so peaceful, the touches of large gemstones and shakra pieces ensured calmness and everything I wanted for my mothers 60th birthday getaway experience. I have an 8 month old and the host made sure to leave the play prn and high chair for me. My family enjoyed all this home had to offer, the smart TVs were enjoyed by the teens, the kitchen was the hub for food and entertainment for all 15 of us (mostly kids) . My mother had the pleasure to sleep in the master and that is a true suite. The batheoom was magnificent. Thank you we truly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful as well as spacious home with an amazing kitchen and pool. The pool and backyard has a lovely view of the golf course - it looked amazing during sunset! There were plenty of towels provided (bath and pool towels) and all the bathrooms were super clean. The beds were all extremely comfortable too. The host was very easy to communicate with and provided detailed instructions for check-in and check out. Highly recommend this home!

This house was so beautiful! A lot bigger than what it seems in photos. I went with some of my closest girls for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect spot. Extremely clean and whenever I had any questions, They responded within minutes to help me. We are going back again in a few months after the wedding!

It was fantastic, we plan to come and stay soon!

Jennifer H. June 26, 2019

Definitely a home away from home. Had all the amenities from the inside to the outside. Backyard was perfect for sun/shade. Quick response from host. Who was very pleasant and never made you feel like you were bothering them. Hope to stay with them again.

A True Gem

We had a wonderful weekend here in this beautiful home. All the adults and kids really enjoyed our stay. The furnishings and supplies the house was stocked with were of great quality. The rooms were quiet so the adults were able to stay up and hang out in the living room without having to be quiet for the sleeping kids. Definitely a top of the tier rental in our experience of renting homes for the past 10 years.

Great house!!

What an amazing house! Beautifully decorated and spacious and clean! We had a large group and it never felt crowded. The backyard was a fabulous place to relax and enjoy guests. Would definitely recommend this house and hopefully will be back to enjoy.

Gorgeous! Perfect for bachelorette weekend with a group of girls. There were 9 of us and there was so much space.

Rachael H. May 9, 2019

Expect to be wow’d by this amazing location. Wonderful for an extended stay or a weekend getaway. This house is very luxe with every detail considered. The host and concierge were responsive throughout our stay to answer questions or arrange activities.

Robert H. April 4, 2019

Stayed as 2 families of 5. More than enough room. Wonderful home. Exactly as described (or better). Would highly recommend and we will be back.

Doug G. March 20, 2019

The home was good. Accommodated our family well. Didn't like the sand pile of a golf course and the dust it created in the pool area and outdoor living space.

Carole L. March 6, 2019
