Recently stayed for 3 nights with my husband for our anniversary. Overall a great place. The set up was great and would love to go back. The location was great-two blocks from the main strip so you can walk just about any place. It had all of the comforts of home and great attention to detail for the most part. I did wish that at night there was a tad more lighting since the road is dark. The hot tub was very relaxing just wish that the pool had been cleaned. Granted I didn't want to swim in November but didn't want to look at patches of leaves on the bottom and some algae starting to grow on the steps either. They did have a gas grill which would have been nice since we did want to cook one night but it was dirty inside and out (under a tree) and there was no brush to clean the actual grill and only plastic cooking tools inside so that was kind of a bummer. Also when we booked the room it showed a turn down service but never received this perk-not a big deal though. There was a miscommunication that could have been avoided. The owner apparently had gone out of town and his in-laws were watching the resort and they didn't realize that we had the rental for several more days and not just the weekend. We went back to the room and up to the door at the same time the father in law was going to clean it for the next guest. He asked how long we would be in the room and we said two more days-he looked shocked. He apologized and said I almost locked you kids out....Saw the owner the next day (the only time we saw him) and mentioned what happened-he apologized and said that it wasn't a big deal if we would have gotten locked out that he could have unlocked the room. The only problem was that the contact information was inside along with the car keys so we could not have walked to the B&B reservation office to notify them so it could have been a wasted few hours not to mention of the in laws would have just walked right into the room!! Other than those minor issues it was a great place to stay and would probably stay there again. Very contemporary with the exception of the wing back chairs. They didnt really fit the theme.
