there was a leaf in my bed Not the worst thing to find

Quiet and private the best beds I have ever had in a rental

Upon entering the place "looked" clean
not one person mentioned roaches
So friendly as easy more than we expected
I did because they only left us 1/2 a roll
Well that night we must have killed more than a dozen of these little pests
this was the absolute worst
but how did a leaf get in my bed???
my sister screamed "cockroach"
A nice getaway Peaceful but close to everything
Great location somewhat easy to get to very private and quiet
The TV is something from the 70's
