We arrived here after a hot day in Kings Canyon/ Sequoia National park and an even hotter drive in the car. So it was just wonderful to be able to just check in and get into the outdoor pool straight away. They provide bath robes (in your room, which is handy) and towels are next to the pool. There are lounge chairs around the pool, you get a really nice view of palms, a cute garden, and the mountains... all in all, really nice!
The "different" touch is that the whole hous is "Gone with the wind"-themed, which -no matter if you've seen the film or have liked it- is something to look at for sure.
The couple who own it have put a lot of love and detail into this place - there is the above theme, nice paintings on the walls, self-made photos, self-made breakfast.
Now, the breakfast seems to be generally hyped there, but ours was... well, average. However, it was fresh and contained of fresh fruit and a self-created recipe which tasted nice. I think they have something different every day, so I am sure you can get really lucky with that, as they seem to like cooking.
On the other hand, the bathroom door (ensuite) didn't close properly (or maybe that's an American thing, that there's always a little space in between doors for no privacy), the fan didn't work (still had air-con, though) and there was supposed to be wifi, which my friend couldn't get to work.
All in all, though, I think I would recommend this place as the hosts are very nice and welcoming and the place is so cute (see photos).
