The cabin was nice, clean and met the needs of my family. We stayed in a 2 bedroom cabin, which had 3 beds and a fold down bed, which we didn't need (2 adults, 2 children), but was happy to see. The location is close to Lara, but outside town, so it's quiet and peaceful. TV had Netflix, my kids got to pat the horses and the beds were comfortable and soft, so they enjoyed the stay. There is air conditioning in the lounge, and ceiling fans in all rooms. The owner was polite, accommodating and even explained about the property and introduced the horses, telling us that we could pat them if we wanted to. It has a kettle, toaster, full size refrigerator with freezer and microwave, but no built in stove, we did find what looked like an electric grill on top of the microwave cupboard, but didn't check as we had takeaway with us. Sachet coffee is provided, we found Moccona cappuccino and latte, but if you want normal coffee/sugar, bring your own. There was a small milk in the fridge. Shower pressure was perfect, not like either the overly soft or the hard "like bullets" pressure you normally get from accommodation... I'm sure you know these pressures! We will definitely be back! I give this 5/5 easily, as it had everything we needed (except that coffee thing, but that's personal taste, and really a non-issue) and more.
