Victoria was a great host! The place was cozy, comfortable, and clean. She forgot two towels (we had four guests), and Victoria was VERY quick to reply and pop over with the two we needed! Overall a great experience

Absolutely beautiful place, the only downside is the steep hill to drive up to get there, but it's so worth it! There was a little notebook full of places to go, things to do, and places to eat and drink nearby, so if you don't know the area, you have a helping hand. Victoria herself was polite, didn't intrude at all, but was easy to contact. Honestly, just go there!
