She's American, he's French and together they've created a special place filled with the best of both worlds.
Location, Location, Location. We wanted to be close to the action, yet far enough away to enjoy a quiet night of sleep. It's easily accessible to major attraction and highways. The house was originally built in 1920 and totally renovated to include the most up-to-date amenities.
The unit is equipped with everything you need. Whatever is missing is only a request away. We're always available to assist. One quest described their visit as 'it was like staying with friends'. On the other hand, if you are totally self sufficient, you'll never see us. Only know we're a phone call away.
