Every detail, no matter how small seemed to be addressed here. Snacks, beverages and drinking water were stocked, even fresh non tap water ice cubes were ready after a long journey. Room, bathroom and deck were much larger than the photos and there was storage...More

Hello. We would love to have you stay with us. January would be your best option for a 2-week stay, as February & March are a little full. Thanks, James
