The house and its setting are just as pictured. As other reviewers have noted, it's away from the city but a only ten-minute drive to the HEB grocery and Target store. If anyone is wondering about the tram... Keith provides really clear instructions on how to operate it and what to expect. Any remaining nervousness went away a few seconds... more
