The property was SUPER dusty. The window sills were dirty and there is no excuse because the property did not have shades. Also under equipped. The property is nice just needs major cleaning and TLC. We called and reported the property not being clean enough. They sent the cleaning crew.

We loved it! We were really pleased to be able to take advantage of the pool and the golf (even if we had to pay for the that). Great location not too far from the supermarket and other activities like mountain bike trails, go karting etc. Lovely house and very comfortable.

Although the sleeping arrangements said 12, thank goodness we only had 9 people. The fold out sofa mattress was completely flat, and no one could have slept on it. The bedroom bath arrangements were excellent. The main complaint was there were no blinds, shades, or curtains on the windows. The two master suites were almost wall to wall windows, and you felt so exposed. It would really help to get some blinds on those. The kitchen was well equipped and beautiful. We loved the fireplace. We loved Hounds Ear, and the location for Hawknest, and Sugar was close enough for us.
