We had a wonderful stay at Nelly's home and Nelly is a great host. The house is really nice and family-friendly. The kitchen is large and has anything you might ever need; perfect for anyone who likes to cook. Probably the best feature of the house though is the outside area in the backyard. It is a great place to sit, eat, splash in the pool and just enjoy the wonderful weather. Definitely recommended.

It was my pleasure to meet and host this wonderful family. They were very respectful of the property and friendly. I was invited to partake in one of their dinners at home and it was a great opportunity to taste each other's specialties and to know a bit of each other's culture. Great experience!
