A DREAM COME TRUE
The property was wonderful, clean, beautiful and efficient. Our host were wonderful to us. Such magnificent and caring folks to complete strangers. We had also put them in a new situation for them, which was a long term stay(a month). I can only say I hope they would be willing to do it again. They live in a town that we fell in love with and hated to leave when it was over. Thanks for making us feel at home and taking such good care of us. To sum up you probably will not find a better place to spend time or better folks to take care of you.
