      I loved the overall stay. Please deal with the water pressure, as a place that accommodates 9 people it's unworkable for only one person to be using the bathroom and no one can have access to water in the kitchen or in the other bathroom.

      I really loved the fact that only the best crockery and cutlery was available for our use. I found all the furnishings very classy and comfortable.
