The best part, though, is the amazing breakfast which Doug and Roxy present each morning! You hardly need lunch later in the day. The house is very...

Doug and Roxy were amazing hosts and went above and beyond for our surprise getaway. I cannot wait to get back to this place and am actually seriously thinking about retiring in this community. Sitting on the porch and taking in all the simplicity was a very powerful thing for us both.
