No RV's, trailers or boats and cars must be kept in the garage or in the driveway overnight due to neighborhood restrictions.

Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to hosting you again!
So glad that you enjoyed your stay! The airport is certainly convenient and it's especially nice that you can enjoy seeing the planes from the neighborhood without much overhead noise.
Thank you for your review and are glad you loved so much about the house. We care about feedback and use it to decide when improvements are needed. We asked the next guests about the mattresses and they said they were fine, however to be sure that we were providing the best possible experience we bought a brand new Brentwood Home gel memory foam bamboo mattress for the master guest room as this mattress has given us rave reviews in other properties. Some guests have gone out of their way to ask us for the name so they could buy it for their own home. Hopefully you will love it. Our description of the property clearly mention the details on the 3rd bedroom. It's suited for teenagers and adults. The 2nd bedroom is fine for younger children. Thanks again for staying with us.
