Our au pair’s mom visited from Germany, and we used Margaret’s guest house as a guest room. It worked great. She was very responsive and accommodating. If available, I’ll rent her place again.

Margaret’s place is akin to staying in. Paradise like place. It is peaceful and surrounded by endless gardens. Margaret and her family were exemplar hosts. We felt as if we were with our own family. Thank you Margaret
