    Not Green Enough.

    Greenery in pictures is different to actuality. Property wasn’t Green at all. Lake is good. Overall the property is arid and needs maintenance to call it beautiful. Though they were short of staff (but that shouldn’t be an excuse either), they did service best to their ability.
