This place filled our needs beautifully. The unit was clean and tidy and well configured for our family. Bret was a welcoming host who greeted a rather frazzled mum & dad with two car sick lads, with a smile, muffins, and directions to the onsite laundry (fabulous). The muffins were AMAZING! A lovely touch. Would stay here again.
