We loved the house, it was perfect for our stay with children. They loved the creek out back and played there happily the entire morning until we went out. That made our trip very pleasant. The entire community is wonderful to stay in! We would rent again!
Me and my wife, daughter(7) and god daughter (8), stayed here for nine days. We absolutely loved it. Then home is welcoming as it sits back from the road. Inside it cozy and really lets you see the surroundings. It's hard to explain how gorgeous the creek and the scenery really looks. We enjoyed the hot tub and hikes up and down the creek. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen and living room are fun spaces. My wife locked the keys in the house and the owner was quick to call us back. We hate to leave, but reality awaits.
The "Copacabana House" is the perfect little home tucked away just far enough into the woods to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but close enough for a 15 minute drive to get the groceries. Very quiet location and the mesmerizing creek right off the back deck is perfect! One thing I loved about the house is the hot tub. I was not planning on spending as much time in it as I did, definitely a BIG plus about this house.
The owner Steve was very easy to work with. We had a bit of a hiccup at the gate with not being registered properly and I called Steve and he got it straightened out within minutes. Things happen, and I do not hold that against him one bit. It actually showed how quickly he will solve a problem for you. Very highly recommended.
The only complaint whatsoever that I have is that some of the pictures on Trip Advisor are out of date (some of the furniture is different than shown in the pictures, which isn't a big deal, but the grill shown in the pictures is a much nicer grill than the one that we actually got to use. Not a huge deal, but fitting 6 steaks and a bunch of asparagus on the grill we got was a bit of a challenge, which wouldn't have been a challenge at all with the grill shown in the pictures.
All in all though, very very satisfied with my experience in Steve's home. The house was very clean and well prepped for our stay and I would highly recommend staying here if you like being nestled in the woods for the weekend!
This is one of the most luxurious and spacious homes that we've ever rented, everything worked perfectly and Steve's instructions were clear and concise. All features, both big and small were exactly as described, although the beauty of the location and in particular the flowing stream right below the house was almost undersold.The sound of the water was a perfect antidote to stressful city life and walking along the stream was ideal for family bonding time-no cell phones required! The house is set in a gated community, which allowed us to use a good indoor pool, without compromising our peace and privacy.
All in all a perfect combination of tranquility, nature, and luxury.
Absolutely loved the place! Everything was clean and well maintained. Owner is very nice and accommodating! Would absolutely refer to a friend!
