Clean and new
Nice and clean room and premises. The only challenge is accessing it ... it’s a steep walk up of around 10 mins.

Best In the Villages... little things lose star
Overall, the accomodations were great. Don't think we could have found a nicer place to stay in the villages. Why I give it a 4 instead of 5 is a lot of little stuff... The WiFi is painfully slow (and I was around to remember dial up) and listing says there is Netflix (it was downpouring one day when we were there) and Netflix didn't work at all. Also no slippers and robes like the listing says. There is also no physical lock on the inside of the room door. Everything is electronic which is modern yet I still would have liked a physical lock. All that said, I would happily recommend this listing. The actual listing seems to need some slight editing but overall good stay.

great view and beds , but was not secure
Loved the view and the bed was very comfortable! Unfortunately you are high above the train station so you keep hearing bells and announcements. The couch was dirty as was the comforter ... the curtain for the shower door (that is right beside the bed) kept going up and down by its self !!! We also found that the master key to all the rooms was left in an open closet for anyone to use ... we alerted the property contact and closed the door but no one came to lock it .
