We have a few new requests that we have to spotlight now and the rules are - NO BBQ sauce is to be served at the house. The damage and stains to the furniture have recently been very extensive so we have to ask that our guest just skip serving BBQ ribs at the house. Sorry about this but it's impossible to get it out of the linen and cotton upholstery and white cushion covers. Also, tell the kids that the fire logs in the fire pit are ceramic, not wood. Please don't allow them to pull the fire pit logs out and break them. Super important that this doesn't happen again.
Bonus: Large Outside enclosed shower.
Gorgeous, Soft, Turkish Pool towels provided.
