I'm very grateful for having met Sandra and her family. My stay at their home couldn't have been better. Sandra is very sweet and caring. Her home is always clean and she makes sure we have a safe and comfortable place to live. She cares about each of her guests and is available whenever you need help or just want to talk. Anthony is very nice and helpful. The kids are very sweet and funny. It's always great to spend some time with them. Thank you, Sandra! I appreciate everything you've done to help me.
