Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you Pam. And yes we had a very good time. The townhouse was perfect for the three of us and then my daughter joined us for the last 3 days. She liked the place very much. She said you had great taste especially since she loves the theatre and she noticed your pictures from the movies by the stairs.
