Clean, safe & comfortable
The hosts Agnes and her husband were very lovely and welcoming. The property is beautiful, big enough that guests don't bump into each other. Ample and safe parking space and a beautiful outdoor area. The fan was a welcome addition. Great for large groups and super great for families.
