ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! The house is AMAZING, the view is AMAZING and the owner Victoria is AMAZING! The booking procedure: Victoria responded immediately to every question I had. This was my first time renting from Airbnb so I am positive I was asking slightly odd questions. Victoria was kind and patient with me. Very accommodating and excellent communication! (When I finally got to meet her, she was just as kind and sweet.)
Checking in and finding the house: Victoria had given me great directions but my GPS was a little off. We could see the house on the side of the mountain as we were driving up but my GPS took us right by their subtle little driveway. I called Victoria and admitted I was lost. She was very understanding and patient and guided me in like a tenured air traffic controller. :)
(Hint #1: The drive way is on your right side as you drive up which goes against your natural instincts cis it appears as if you would drive off into the valley...lol There are two small palm trees guiding you in.
Hint #2: Do not attempt to find this beautiful house in the dark. It gets pitch black along the roadway at night. Once you locate the property once, you will have no problem finding it at night. ) When we arrived at the house, we were all giddy. We took Victoria's advice and stopped for groceries on the way up.
The sky was so clear and the view so addicting that none of us wanted to do anything but have a cocktail in the hot tub and just soak it all in. The view is THAT incredible!
Victoria arrived and showed us all around. A very unassuming lady but sweet as can be. Very laid back! We instantly hit it off as the house is primarily decorated in a Thai motif.
I just returned from a long visit to Thailand so I felt right at home. Amazing energy in this house! The house: The floor plan is like being in a modern Thai, Winchester Mystery House. We LOVED it! The upper floor where the driveway is has the two bedrooms and a wonderful family room with traditional Thai decorating. There is an amazing deck and a very inviting hammock that is a must try.
The views from here are the best on the property as they sit above the power lines to the house. I'm a photographer so unobstructed views are important to me. The lower floor with the boasts the master bedroom where I slept. Amazingly large space with grand windows facing the ocean. There are sun shades you can lower if you like but if you do, why are you even staying here? Waking up to that view was energizing! A decent sized eclectic bathroom with a nice comfortable bed. This floor also contains the spacious and more modern family room. Nice big tub and bathroom on this floor too. Big screen TV with all...
