    Sijainti oli rauhallinen. Lemmikin kanssa erinomainen paikka. Tarkka katuosoite olisi helpottanut oikean paikan löytymiseen.

  • Hanna M, Kesäkuu 2021

    Kauniilla paikalla kiva mökki, upeat maisemat ja hyvää omaa rauhaa. Naapurit eivät olleet liian lähellä. Nuotio/grillialusta oli aika huonokuntoinen, mutta mukanamme oli foliovuokia jolloin onnistui ruuanlaitto ihan hyvin. Kotoisa paikka!
