The name of this home is inspired by an elusive yet exotic tropical bird that is a splash of black, white and yellow. It has a distinctly elegant, quill-like tail and is often spotted wondering about on lily pads. It’s the perfect place to soothe your senses after the heat and dust of a safari through rugged terrain....The name of this home is inspired by an elusive yet exotic tropical bird that is a splash of black, white and yellow.
