"We all had an amazing time at your dream home, we all fell in love with the whole experience, the house, the setting, the garden and all the finishes you've done to the property. You will definitely be seeing our group again as we've found a jewel. May we compliment you on the cleanliness of the property Mandy and Elizabeth keep it immaculate , which is how we like to leave it when we leave. We pulled straws for picking bedrooms as we thought that was the fairest way to pick. But we loved all of them, River View is so relaxing, all the birdsong and sound of the river."
