Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Richard and Sharon are very nice people and it was a real pleasure to stay in their lovely house. We haven't got time to try the pool as we were really busy by our jobs but it seemed to be amazing.
    I would definitely recommend it.

  • Staying with Richard and Sharon was wonderful. They are great hosts and so thoughtful and caring. Never a repeated meal in 15 days...Sharon comes from a solid tradition of good, real home-style cooking. She never disappoints. Travelers of any background or country will feel at home here. I have made two new, wonderful friends that I hope to visit again soon.
