Karyn and John really made me and my family feel welcome. The self contained apartment was lovely, and so was the view. I couldn't be happier with the stay, and would recommend this spot to everyone. Will definitely back in the near future. Thank you both so much.

We had a marvelous few days staying at this lovely apartment. The view is extraordinary as are the wonderful flowers in the garden and the suite is relaxing and comfortable. It was a pleasure to meet Karyn and John who were very thoughtful and kind hosts and who welcomed us on very short notice . Highly recommended !

The house is amazingly beautiful and Karyn is such a warm hearted woman who made us feel at home. They even let me watch the Formula 1 race in the middle of the night! Amazing location, beautiful house and fantastic hosts. Couldn't be better!

John and Karyn's development of the self-contained part of the house is beautifully designed, comfortable,...
