    I loved having Zachary in my house. I won one more son! It was 6 months of exchange of experiences and harmony. Zach is a very educated young man and focused on his goals. I hope he is very happy, because he deserves all the best in life. Thank you for everything!

    Uma amiga e eu nos hospedamos no apartamento da Marcia durante o carnaval 2015 e foi uma experiência maravilhosa. Local limpo, arejado, organizado e com uma localização excelente! Nossa anfitriã sempre muito simpática e atenciosa tornou nossa estadia muito agradável. Recomendo!
