Dell House is situated in a beautiful, secluded location, where the sound of nature is all you hear. The house is very welcoming, clean and well equipped. The housekeepers, Angie and her husband, are really nice and they live nearby in case you need anything. We had an amazing time and after one week there, we all wanted to stay longer.
