Also when we did get in there was a key in the back of the main door so the key wouldn't have worked anyway. Because of the remote location we had to drive to get a phone signal in order to call the office.

    Beautiful property in beautiful location. We did have difficulties with the key box not opening. Luckily there was an extra box with keys for maintenance which we were able to access. Also when we did get in there was a key in the back of the main door so the key wouldn't have worked anyway. Because of the remote location we had to drive to get a phone signal in order to call the office. I am thankful there was a second key box they were able to tell us about otherwise it is likely we would have had to wait for upto an hour. With significant effort my partner was eventually able to open the box but it was not at all easy and other customers may experience similar issues.
