Feb. 3, 2008 We know you hear it a lot, cause it is very much true, yawl have a beautiful, home. Our girls loved coming here so much they don’t want to leave. Our Middle daughters took a whole bunch of pictures of the house and backyard so she could remember it. This was something very different from all the hotel’s we are always staying at. Your cottage is very comfortable. The fishing, BBQs, relaxing in the hot-tub was wonderful. The view is very breathtaking. It would be great if we had caught some fish, but it still was a wonderful stay. Thank you so much, you’re a very kind man and trust-worthy. Please be careful with that. Thanks for everything. Take Care & God Bless
It was wonderful meeting you and we hope to see you again. Truly Grateful: Joe,Leana Isabel, Tina, Ela Rios.
