Mrs. Ali and her son were beyond kind to me. I can’t express how much love I have for them. She always made sure to check in with me, have a chat, and make sure I was comfortable. Beyond kind to both me and my sister. If I were ever back in Philly, she is the first person I’ll reach out to.
(Mrs. Ali, if you see this, hi I miss you!)
It was great experience to stay at Rebecca’s lovely house.
Rebecca is super nice and funny and helpful. she didn’t just chatted with us; she taught us so many important things about raising a child she got great knowledge in verity of fields.
And her son was so nice and helpful all the time.
She takes good care of her beautiful garden and the house is spacious. With cute little dog we enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend it.
