  • I loved staying with Sheila and Jim. They were warm, welcoming, helpful and their home is very cozy. Jim was great with making sure I had proper directions for everywhere I went and actually provided transportation for me when ever possible.
    Highly recommended!

  • Sheila y Jim son excelentes anfitriones. Disfrutamos mucho de su compañía, las charlas y sus sugerencias. Nos hicieron sentir en todo momento como integrantes de la familia. El primer día nos fueron a buscar a la estación de tren y nos brindaron información sobre cómo viajar a Morriston.
    La casa está a 3 minutos de la parada de colectivo y a unos 7 de un parque precioso, singleton park. La habitación es amplia, luminosa, comoda, silenciosa, ubicada en la planta alta con un baño; tiene tv con cable y la señal de wifi es buena.
    Las comidas fueron muy buenas y completas, siempre nos consultaron por nuestros gustos a la hora de comer.
    Los dos son sumamente amables y estan pendientes de uno durante la estadía.
    Altamente recomendable.
