3/5 Okay

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The parking was a grassy area of the lawn, but it was too muddy to use, so we parked on the street. The apartment was very nice, but for the price we were paying, I didn't like being asked to cut back on our comfort for the monetary gain of our host. There were two written statements asking us to be very sparing on water use because a tank of water is expensive, and asked to turn off the heat when we left the property, which meant returning to a cold apartment that took quite a while to warm up. The neighbor told us that the owner lives on the property, but we never met the owner.

If you’re staring in one of the bottom apartments it is very noisy.

Kokomo Retreat was pristine with a spectacular setting. The kitchen was meticulously organized and the linens were hotel quality. The view from the hot tub melted all your troubles away. Jo was very accommodating and eager to please. I highly recommend staying here whenever possible.

Jo is a wonderful host and we loved staying at Kokomo. The view from spa is wonderful and it is a lovely place to spend a few days. Jo went out of her way to make us welcome.
