We booked and stayed for one night in a one bedroom with spa pool outside in private courtyard. Place was clean and spacious, had everything we needed and more (including a complimentary snack platter). Hosts Peter and Debbie were most welcoming to my family and I, friendly and professional. Thank you for an enjoyable, pleasant stay. Definitely recommend!
