Great location because of the view, but pretty off.
The british lady who owned the place was very nice and helpful. And the guy with the long curly hair.
Broken toilet seat
Instant coffe and milk poweder for the breakfast (I know, the rent was cheap, but at least the milk could be real)
Despite the cons above I was going to give Rocky Mountain 5/5 BUT....
...We ordered a ride to Aqaba (charge 45 JD). I talked to one of the co-owners the day before about it and told him that there were four of us with a big bag each, "No problem" he said, When the car arrived the day after, both the driver and the same guy from the day before reacted to our luggage and said "it's impossible to fit all that luggage in the trunk". Stil they "would solve it". One of the employees arrived with a pick up and he was going to take us to Aqaba instead. The guy was young and acted like he was on meth! Driving really fast through the dark and bad roads of the mountain texting and talking on the phone all the time. He missed a bump at one place beacuse of texting and one of us hit his head to the ceiling pretty badly. He also landed on the WRONG side of the road for while after that bump, and couldn't come back until a opening in the concrete in the middle of the road. Imagine sitting in a car on the wrong side of the road for 3-400 meters wih no lights litting up the way in mountains of Jordan, I had my pregnant wife in the car and all four of us thought that was the most terrible ride of our life.
So Rocky Mountain; don't be greedy, you can't sell everything to everyone. A simple "sorry we can't help you with that" would get by sometimes,,,
