About alvaro Ibañez & wife Denise DeVries
Like most immigrants, after many circumstances I was experiencing in my birth country, I chose to start a new life in a new land. That country was the United States. Art is my life. “I live for art not from art.” Since my arrival, I have dedicated all my potential to sponsoring art and artists in all the creative fields. I promote, encourage, and mentor all of them that never were touched by art, or don’t believe in themselves, or are afraid to show because they are afraid of comments. I open shows and spaces to display their work regardless of their experience and background, as long as they have the idea and or need to explore creativity. Many became very well known creative people, some found their lives changed, with a lot more to live for, because whoever is involved in art lives a great life. If you have a disastrous place, as soon as you move art in, it becomes enchanted and shines. It is the same with life.
alvaro Ibañez & wife Denise DeVries purchased this House in 2002

It was a very charming/unique house!
My family and I had a wedding to attend in Heathsville. This house was centrally located to the wedding and to the water. Very close to a lovely beach area, we enjoyed the outside space very much. The house was very charming and open. It suited our family perfectly! The owners were most gracious and very attentive! We had a wonderful weekend!!!!!
Thank you Janie much appreciated. Sorry I was not there to meet you all. It is first time I let 8 people stay at the house instead of 6. Jason the manager was not there for you? Kind of surprised with your great comment and only 4 stars. Please let me know how we can be more efficient. Best wishes
A unique, wonderful getaway
While it's a few miles to the closest public beach, the bright colors and open spaces give this property the feel of a beach house. We loved having the choice of eating and relaxing outside or inside, on comfy couches or at a big table. The kitchen was well-furnished. While the location itself is secluded and wonderfully peaceful, we were able to ride our bikes to the towns of Kilmarnock and Irvington one day and to Burgess and Vir-Mar Beach (32 mile round trip) the next. (There are few bike lanes, so we'd recommend staying on side roads as much as possible.) The owners are close enough go over and chat with, but not too close. The only downside is that this region has its share of mosquitoes in the summer, so we had to be vigilant about shutting screens and doors (which did a good job of keeping them out), and the insects did keep us from enjoying the outside decks at night. That is probably not an issue for most of the year, and comes with being so close to nature. All in all, we considered this house a great find and would recommend it wholeheartedly.
Thank you so much, Thank you for taking good care of the house. Yes since we have so much rain mosquitos get very bad this daus. I'm glad the rain was not in your time here.ow in Dallas. by Monday in Tucson
We respect your privacy but as I mention on the profile we are always available. Hope you return. Our neighbor is taking care of the rental so our landscaper company. They have a long waiting because the rain.Best wishes.
