          Are the patios off of the first floor a shared patio? Or is it a private patio? Also do any of the rooms have jacuzzi baths? Not essential but thought I would ask since i was inquiring about the patio rooms. Patio is very important to us.

          The patio is a large open patio with curtain dividers so not entirely private. We do have jet tubs in select rooms.
