Airbnb limits the requests to 16, but we sleep up to a total of 30 adults and children! (24 if only adults are staying unless special exceptions are made.) We do allow weddings within certain parameters but please start a conversation vs. a 24 hour request.

There is something for everyone at Karin’s Place–from the peaceful and tranquil gardens, gazebo and pool, a pirate ship playground for the kids, to a full-size movie screen with surround sound and enough activities to last several lifetimes!
