Comfortable house, interesting area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this modern, comfortable house. The area has lots of attractions with walking trails close to the house. The house is well supplied with games and videos for children. The restaurant above the hardware store which is a 10 min walk from the house is a gem, great lattes and yam fries.
