Everything was clean and comfortable, lovely furnishings. Having the cafe downstairs made dinner so easy the first night when it was rainy and we didn't know where we were. The cafe has lots of guitars, a piano, and a mandoline so if you play you can here! Our children enjoyed playing with the owners' family and the foosball table made their trip! There were also loads of great English language kids books for reading and our new favorite board game. I love that they provided a dirty clothes bin in our family room, it made it much easier to keep the room clean! The air-conditioning unit on dehumidify kept the room so comfortable, and the blinds blocked the common room light out nicely
