We felt like welcome guests as soon as we arrived. The hosts, Robert & Karen, are a delight and were very informative about the surroundings. We were shown two rooms and chose the extra special upstairs bedroom which felt more like an apartment which made leaving the house to go exploring very difficult. If you need to relax and regenerate your energy levels, put this property on your list! We have!... we will be returning!!
