  • “The kitchen appliances were substandard.”

    The frying pans were scratched, full of rust, so not usable. The kitchen table was too small to use properly with a family of 3.

    The frying pans were scratched, full of rust, so not usable. The kitchen table was too small to use properly with a family of 3. The view is unique and the biggest plus of the Boathouse. The outside terrace sets were great and we could eat outside in great comfort.
