“Nicest House I Have Ever Stayed In!”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

My wife and 15 or so of her friends had staying in this house a couple years back (when it was probably only three years old). Many of them had such a good time they wanted to come back with their spouses/partners, etc. Lucky Me!

After hearing about how great this place was for almost two years, I can say that I was not disappointed. In fact, the actual place far exceeded my expectations. And my expectations were pretty high.

We had 6 couples and three singles. Two of the singles shared the bedroom with the twin beds. The other single had a bedroom to herself. And every bedroom had its own bathroom. I can't express how important that was for me. That on a couples trip every couple had their own private bed/bath.

Then there was the food. Yummy! I have never had a chef prepare two out of three meals for me every day. What a treat. Chicken, Steak, Shrimp, Pasta, ceviche, banana pancakes, French toast, etc. All fresh from the market every day.

Then there was the maids. They arrived in the late morning and left in the late afternoon. They worked their tails off. They were polite and were always willing to share a smile.

Things to note:
1. Theatre room is awesome. Unfortunately one of our experiences in that room was to watch the 49rs lose in post season. But what a great place to watch it. Very comfortable. BUT, there is a really strong musty smell in the room and it could use a more powerful air conditioner. I understand that this house is in a tropical climate, but the musty smell and heat in that room made it too hard to use for an extended period of time.

2. One of the three bedrooms on same level as the games and theatre room also had a strong musty smell. None of that portion of the house was underground, so I am not sure what the source of the smell was.

Other than those two minor things, this house is off the hook.

Thank you for your review and the notice re: the theatre room. We've since installed a new A/C unit there so guests can be comfortable for movies or watching their favorite team win a big game!
