I liked the location. The view is incredible. Unfortunately, there were spiders everywhere. The property managers were responsive and came in to clean the place. However, all night we were killing these spiders. The place is a bit rustic but I quite liked that

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
A basic cottage. Open design (no closed bedrooms). Was quite clean with the exception of the shower. Kitchenette was very old, misaligned cupboard doors, and minimal counter space. The shower was also very old and in need of an upgrade. An old small plastic unit with missing door, and jury rigged with a cheap plastic shower curtain. A bit disgusting. With the exception of the kitchenette and the shower, and the lack of Wi-Fi and cell service, it could’ve been a reallyq nice place. Would not go back there

Did not get an email with the key code. Had to find out how to reach the owner when I arrived in bad weather. The sell the place as having WiFi, but that is oversold. There is a one bar wifi and zero internet connections. Furthermore, the phone reception is so bad that internet over the phone is not possible either.
