This was an amazing experience. Lela was a gracious host and amazing cook! She showed us around her beautiful garden, made us comfortable in her home, and cooked us an incredible meal. The evening was full of laughter, great conversation, and great company. I think this is what the ideal Air BnB experience is and can't recommend this experience enough.

Lela is a doll - she made everyone so comfortable and her food is out of this world. That chicken ! The curry shrimp - EVERYTHING WAS INCREDIBLE. Thank you Lela you will be seeing us again soon!
