Greetings from the Shonka family! We are a tight family of 4 (5 if you count the dog), who enjoy hosting company. We love art, crafts, science, discovery and anything that allows us to be creative. We like to live as eco-friendly as possible and we prefer experiences vs. things. We enjoy gardening in the backyard and share the produce with friends and neighbors. The whole family loves sushi (yes, even the kids) and we love to try new amazing food places around town.
Hospitality is in no short supply at our house. We welcome those visiting us to join in our family's activities if they so wish. Or, if you prefer, you may remain in your private suite, undisturbed, for your entire stay. Have a great day! Hope to see you on your stay in our town.
