Thank you for a wonderful time here at Paradise Found. We enjoyed every moment. Jenny, thank you for your caring hospitality and every little detail. The breakfasts were served with so much care and love and we enjoyed it every time. We loved the view from the balcony and even the thunderstorm was an experience. We will always remember the drongo birds watching while we enjoyed our breakfast.

Thank you so much for your hospitality as well as the wonderful places you recommended we visit. We had fun! Paradise Found is indeed a home away from home. May God keep you both so that others can experience the same thing we did.

Thank you for the lovely, homely stay @ Paradise Found. Your love, warmth and smile made us part of this beautiful place. Our honeymoon was great because of the info you gave us. We loved the peace & a breath of fresh air your home provided. We’ll most definitely miss the breakfast feast on the balcony and will come back for more.
