Great home and great experience. Comfortable, clean, with nice ameneties. Surroundings were awesome. Peaceful, quiet, great for a weekend of reflection. Thanks for having us, Joe. Hope you're available again next year,
Joe was an amazing host! I was pleased with the Beautiful secluded home and the wonderful scenery. His home was gorgeous, warm and entertaining. Joe and his son were very nice to deal with. Very helpful and responsive in making our experience perfect. I will definitely contact Joe again to inquire on coming back next year.

The property and house were amazing!!! Even more beautiful than the photos! Beautiful and functional. I can not wait to return again with a group of friends - there is so much to do just in and around this spectacular property.
Joe's house was beautiful. We were impressed with orchids and the thoughtful interior design. The house was also very livable, and perfect for our group that included a toddler and a dog. The open floor plan helped my group stay connected and close. We had a wonderful experience!
Great experience. Joe runs this like a business in all the best ways: extremely responsive, positive, helpful, but also flexible and easy going. The accommodations were fabulous and lovely, but we also all felt very comfortable there. Questions we had for Joe during our stay were answered quickly and helpfully. We loved the space- both indoors and out- and hope to back again soon! A great find for young and old alike!
Our family had a wonderful time staying at this uniquely decorated, cozy, very comfortable and relaxing country home! It is perfectly located for a day at the beach or a hike in a nearby park. The 3-D TV, sound system, and outdoor hot tub were icing on the cake. Joe was a great host, and we would definitely come back.
Couldn't have asked for a more perfect weekend get away! The place was a bit tricky to find since it's very secluded but either follow Joe's directions or (website hidden) maps brought us there correctly. Got in a bit late so Joe had the fire going for us, lights on, and some soothing music going when we arrived. Walked us through everything and was in constant contact through the whole weekend if needed. A beautiful house with own pond, hot tub, fire pit, etc. You can tell a lot of thought and love was put into every corner of the house. If I get another chance I would love to make a trip back. Thanks so much Joe!
For me, after seeing the pictures of Joe's place, I was sold, unwaivering in my ability to be swayed for anything less, after searching through dozens of posts. With a family effort and Joes patience, we made it happen...and I am beyond happy in how it all turned out! Mom & Dad both said that “this was the most relaxing vacation they have ever taken”. The entire family hopes Joe keeps the property on AirBNB so we can make it an annual family reunion event!
What We Liked Most:
•“Open and inviting indoor floor plan for family gatherings neatly blended with outdoor areas like the gardens and fire pit area”
·“Rustic architecture/decor set us at ease while modern kitchen facilities made Mom’s cooking enjoyable as well as delicious”
·“Family amenities like the pool table, foosball table, golf green, pond with paddle boat and newly installed Bow & Arrow target site ;)”
· “The Fire Pit was Dad’s favorite location.”
· “The Host – Joe is an awesome host-none better!”
Thank you Joe for your house, the property and your hospitality! And we will keep in touch! If you ever want to come out to the East Coast...you have a place, although much smaller ;), to stay!

We had a wonderful time. We are a family of four with a five and an active two year old. The kids loved exploring, playing by the pond, sleeping in the loft and a Saturday night campfire. The grownups appreciated the big, well-equipped kitchen and the overall flow of the house.
We've rented a lor of houses and usually find several things missing or wanting. Joe's house is the exception. Everything was well appointed and thought through. We'd love to go back and highly recommend it.
