This was an amazing AirBnB experience! Gerald was a wonderful host - very responsive in communicating in advance of our stay, and very welcoming. Once we arrived he showed us a map of the town, asked if we needed anything, and provided access to all amenities that were listed on the web site. The home is beautiful - open, spacious, creative, artistic. The Lakeview Room is bright, clean, and comfortable with a gorgeous view of the sunrise in the morning. A lovely experience from start to finish! Thank you very much, Gerald, and I hope to visit again another time!
