Thank you Mel for your review. We are definitely a county property, frogs and all. While we do use pest control, I can't stop Mother Nature :). We apologize for the rooster, I'll make sure future guests are aware. As advertised wi-fi is weak at best. I'd like to clarify that our pool is fenced according to code. I'm hoping you noticed our entire 2.3 acre property is fenced and the pool area is also fenced within the outer fence according to the California building code. The pool area is large so that might be confusing. Our guests can enjoy the outer part of the property independent of the pool, which is important for families with small children. Rails on pool steps is mandatory for hotels and resorts, which you pointed out ours is neither ;). We appreciate your feedback and trust you enjoyed California.
