memorial day relaxation

  • 4 of 5
This place was calm and relaxing. 2 couples, 1 monkey (not a real monkey) and 2 dogs.

Heather was awesome and very helpful.. (we had to contact her regarding the internet password :( )

The place was nice and clean... the pool was already heated the jacuzzi was ready..

Unfortunately she made the mistake of telling the boys to help themselves with whatever was in the fridge.. and boy did they... (I'm REALLY sorry about that!)

It was calm peaceful.. VERY close to downtown ps almost within a walking distance if we wanted to die of the heat. Much better than most of the rental companies we usually rent with.

The pool was way too good.. much better than the picture and the firepit was great as well...

Only downside to this place was.. not enough lighting in the backyard to do bbq at night.. but it was ok we all had smart phone and we were all smart enough to use the flashlight application which worked out great.

no regrets on my side here. was worth the money..was worth the drive.

fyi heather and linda were very helpful and very nice... (i happen to be a rush rush type of person.. sooo im sure i bugged them both alot trying to get the place and the process...)

Would love to come back to this place if they would allow us! :)
