We have both blessed & grateful since we started our airbnb in January 2017. After a very sad year this has been an amazing experience - meeting such wonderful friends from all over the world. We are looking at operating the entire 2 levels to host 14 people within 12 months & also allow charity stays for the brain cancer foundation.
Thanks for all your support and lovely reviews.
Lorna & Martha :)
