Loranne L. Sep 2021
This house is super cute and nicely done. It was also well equipped and obviously meant to be used.

We did wish we had known that the backyard did not have a complete fence. Given that we had our dogs, it wasn't as easy as just letting them out. Easy enough to walk them but we were looking forward to letting them run as we are currently in an apartment while our house is being built. Also, it would have been nice to know that the back door is in the bedroom meant for kids. I'll be honest...my 9 years old twin boys were not very comfortable at all with that. Only other "major" complaint is the curtains (or lack of) on various windows. In the family room all west facing windows had curtains that could not be pulled over the window. Made it hot and bright and led to sun in the eyes for those not sitting on the couch. Same scenario in the dining room. And in that tiny little back bedroom for the kids, with the backdoor in it...not even curtains, but valences. One window had absolutely nothing. Again, didn't make my 9 year old's very comfortable. All told, makes for a cute space. But practicality definitely doesn't play in. And while I wish I had known the backdoor was where it was...I'm not sure it would have changed our booking this cute house. And I realize...I have no idea where else that backdoor could be placed.

We were comfortable, to be sure. It was nice as a bouncing point to meet up with friends. One day, headed to east beach. Next day, to dinner at a friend's house that lives on the island out towards Campeche. Easily accessible to most everything. While that was nice, I definitely did miss being beside the beach. For our quick little getaway that was rather spontaneous, it worked great.

Everything was good the house is beautiful the only thing that we didn’t like was that there was a lot of dog hair everywhere , the main bedroom had a dog smell and the kitchen floor looked like it hasn’t been cleaned but other than that it was good thank you so much
