Due to an overflow of guests for a weekend party I was looking for an additional place for family and friends for overnight stays during that time frame. Janice and Jim's place seemed really nice for it's spaciousness and tranquility. My ( 8 plus a baby) guests all told me they loved staying there. They said the heat was no problem as there is some kind of a general airco system that keeps the entire house cool, plus additional fans. There was plenty of space for all of them, it was very clean, and they loved the swings and the lights in the tree(s). Of course most of them were at my place for a lot of the time but I can honestly say that they were all very happy with their accommodations.

It was an exceptional experience staying here. Entire home is immaculate beautiful and provided a relaxing Zen like atmosphere. The setting allowed our family to connect and bond in a inspiring new way. It's completely beautiful, completely private and simply amazing! We enjoyed the high quality craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout. Highly recommended!

We rented the Sunshine house for a girl's getaway with my sisters-in-law. The house was amazing - well equipped, comfortable, beautiful, located in the forest with 2 ponds on site. We enjoyed Thai massages up at the massage studio with Janice. It was one of the best massages I've ever had, and I get them regularly, and have been to Thailand. You must experience it! Next, we picked blackberries outside our house, and our host lent us ingredients to make a blackberry crisp for dessert. We grilled and ate dinner al fresco on the patio and enjoyed the magical sparkling green lights that lit up the giant tree out back. Two of us slept in the tent equipped with comfortable mattresses out by the pond, where the sounds of crickets and frogs lulled them to sleep. In the morning, we had a Restorative Yoga session with Alex, who was sweet and incorporated an original song composition into her relaxing yoga session. We only regretted we couldn't stay longer, since we didn't get a chance to use the 2-person infrared sauna in back of the house during our one-night stay. We are already talking about coming back! Such a great spot.

This is my second stay at the sunshine house - last time was in winter and this time was in summer. Property is equally beautiful in both seasons, but this time I got to enjoy the hammock and swinging chairs, and hear the chorus of frogs in the pond. An idyllic place!
