We have solid renters

Thank you so much for this forum. I felt Sabbatical Homes was a much safer way to advertise than any of our other options. This was the only place we listed and it took about six weeks. We have solid renters and now we can be away without much worry. I might add that we were looking for tenants six months out so we didn't know if we would get any hits on our site that early--but we did! Peace of mind for me. Thank you for the work you do and your wonderful site!
