"Caz, thanks for sharing your wonderful home. We had a great time on Cortes. The scenery and gardens you have are a work of art. Your home is cosy, charming and made us feel at home. The children had a great time collecting oysters and making a fire in the fire pit. It was truly an unforgettable experience for us all. We hope to return next year."

"Hi Caz thanks very much for a great visit. The beds were so comfy it was difficult to get out. Very relaxing and we enjoyed walking to Smelt Bay and Hollyhock and taking a motor boat out from the Gorge Harbour."

"With the exception of our own "cottage "by the sea in Nanoose bay, there are few places in the world, (Lapa Rios on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, the Mena House in Cairo, with the great Pyramid framed by the front window of our room; the B&B in Istanbul behind the Aya Sophia, with the sounds of call to prayer filling the pre-dawn air during the first days of Ramadan; the back street hotels off St Germain Du Pies in Paris, or Assisi after sunset when the last tourist bus has returned to Florence) which have the perfect combination of "magic", beauty and energy to inspire us to our depths, as this fairy cottage of yours Caz. It is filled with the love and beauty that nourishes the heart and soul. Thank you for your devotion to the "cause". May you be blessed to continue it."
