“We had a great stay at Jennifer and Grant's home. The home is stunning with a lovely private pool that we struggled to drag our daughter away from. We enjoyed bbqs on the terrace each evening watching the sun set over the river. Jennifer was a great host and we would love to stay there again. Cannot recommend this place enough!”
