The location couldn't have been more beautiful and being right on the water and able to walk along the lake was incredible. Everything was provided as represented which made the stay easy and comfortable. Having the local management escort us to the unit when we first arrived was extremely helpful and allowed us to quickly aclimate and start enjoying our... more

The garden space is mainly vertical. 2 full bathrooms were shower rooms . The bedrooms were very basic and disappointing.The third bedroom was windowless. The views over the lake were sensational but the... more

To be fully transparent during our entire 8 years of renting our property, we have always provided each guest with over 100+ pictures and... more

The large balcony on the first floor had panoramic views, a lovely place to eat or sit with a glass of wine... more
