Verified reviewexcellent

Sorry M, but we have absolutely and utterly no negative feedback. None whatsoever. The bed was soft and warm, the logs plentiful, oh I did say to Michael there’s no colander to drain the salad leaves, then I found your beautiful one! It is all so exquisitely furnished, antiques and the merely old and the new. We LOVED it. And the deck, and the view from the deck. We were gobsmacked, it stopped our breath We were almost overcome by Hanne’s kindness when Ginger Snap vanished, and by Stoffie’s immense energy in so generously driving him home. Thank you all for your extreme professionalism and extraordinary kindness.
