About the owner: We love our town, our home and immediate neighborhood - if you are interested in having a private, fun and enjoyable week - this house is for you. It's healthy, sunny, active and a great place to relax and enjoy. Our rugs are beautiful and floors are amazing - but, we also love sandy feet. Do what you can to help maintain this great house in the excellent condition, but we also understand what it means to be comfortable. We love animals, birds and fresh roses. Our grass is organically kept green and the landscape is almost perfectly groomed. Eating on the front porch is our most favorite past time with friends and family. We're excited to share with the right family, person or group.
