Above and beyond!

What a great place to rest for a few days! We loved our stay there. So beautiful and peaceful. The host went beyond hospitable. This was the perfect spot to get away from it all. Thank you so much for this experience.

Our favorite BW stop yet!

Not only is this in a peaceful and beautiful location yet close to downtown and beaches, but the hosts are fantastic and so gracious. Hard to leave but there is more to see. We now feel fortunate to call them friends and hope to see them again.

Well... what can I say about this family? AWESOME!!!

DUKE and I had a great few days here. The home is beautiful , the city is beautiful, and the family is extra beautiful. Very welcoming... we even had a pot luck while enjoying the football game on my last night there. We will always remember our experience in Venice! You would be blessed to stay here. Talk soon on our FB page.

Not enough time!

What a gorgeous location with the most wonderful hosts! We could not have imagined being welcomed with such love and hospitality. We only regret not having enough time to spend at this lovely retreat however, we will be back when our adventure brings us around again someday.

Magical retreat, groovy family, beautiful bonfire!

Wow! Our host couple and their groovy family were absolutely amazing! Words cannot properly convey our gratitude for their extreme kindness and generosity. We are SO grateful that we have made lifelong friends! We look forward to seeing them again. Beyond all that their property is magical. We found a little slice of heaven.

Had the best time staying in the Beautiful shady yard of Terri and Steve. They were so kind and helpful and I count on us to be friends, real friends, from this point onwards. Loved staying here and feel very grateful!
