I researched for hours to choose the right place for a special celebration during Christmas week. I chose Casa 325. It is a tough place to find and I have to agree about the guy at the end of the driveway. He was painting the numbers or something and that was why we had such a time finding the place.
We made arrangements to have a suite but at first were being sent up stairs to a room. Once it was clear why I requested a first floor room we were taken to the suite we had reserved. Apparently there was some other party coming in and a switch was going to be made without our consent. Those two things didn't make a very good impression but we were determined to enjoy our stay.
The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere and we love being at that end of the street. The price was very high as it was a holiday week but I was expecting a lot from the reviews too.
The suite was immaculate and on first sight great. Unfortunately the furniture was not comfortable to sit on and the bed was not very comfortable either. The air conditioner blew right on us while we were sleeping. It was supposed to be a queen bed but didn't feel much bigger than a double. We have a queen at home so I has something to compare. The suite has a little fridge and microwave which is very convenient. The most comfortable place to sit was the table and chairs in the kitchen area.
There is a really great porch in front of the room that is shared with the suite next door. That was a big issue for us. We don't smoke and the other suite did. They were at the table 24/7 most of the time in their pajamas! We couldn't leave our doors open and enjoy the beautiful weather because of the smoke. We love to sit outside and it was simply impossible unless we went to another outside area to sit. Our bedroom also was right over the maintenance shed/area where the staff gathered at 7 a.m. and then started the leaf blower!
We loved the kitties around the Inn and certainly the location. We didn't get off on the right foot and that was hard to overcome for our visit.
I can certainly see why others would love the place with a large group because you could have the porch and pool area to visit. It just wasn't what we were hoping for and probably won't stay again. Just not our cup of tea.
