I stayed in Ray and Nicole's beautiful home for around 2 months. Everything was prepared for my stay down to the smallest details, with extremely helpful and considerate information being made available. They were extremely helpful in all matters and they made it very easy to enjoy the stay and focus on the work. The house is very both very functional and pleasant, with a fantastic view and up-to-date amenities. A truly friendly, pleasant and positive experience, and highly recommendable!
