This is the second year we have stayed with Toni. She is a very gracious host and opens her house up to guests. The neighborhood is very quiet and a short drive to many restaurants and malls. The backyard pool comes in handy on a hot sunny day. Her three dogs are very friendly. Toni even guided us on an afternoon kayak trip down a local rive. We hope to be back.

Also winter is Perfect for the garden where I grow lots of vegetables, greens and peas. Lots of original paintings in the house....many for sale to if you are interested. I like having guests as I love getting to know people from other places and other countries. I have traveled in Europe, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy. I will be around but I will also be working at times. I speak a little Spanish, but it is limited to the basics.
