Wow - how gratifying it is as a property owner to read such a complimentary review. We work hard to get it right, and reading how much this is appreciated, makes it all worthwhile.
We thoroughly enjoyed meeting this truly lovely professional American couple and their equally great family. To use their own words, we would welcome them back 'in a heartbeat' and we very much hope to see them again in 2014. This review has made our day.
