Lara's place is stylish and stunning. It's isolated, but neighbors are nearby and within an earshot. The fire pit and accompanying stars are arguably the home's greatest asset. Unfortunately, the place wasn't particularly clean, but its features more than compensated.

Hi Matthew. I'm glad you enjoyed the fire pit and stargazing! I'm sorry to hear about the cleanliness. This is the first time i have had a complaint and have now switched house keepers and will ensure that the new housekeeper will make sure the house is impeccably cleaned. Thank you for your feedback.
