Breathtakingly Gorgeous Property
Everything about this property is on point and first rate, except there was some intermittent air conditioning unit or grinding motor noise all night which made it hard for my husband to sleep well. The great news is that upon disclosing this information to management upon checkout, they could not have been more gracious and took $50 off the invoice. We can't wait to return again next year.
