Warm and cozy

"Thanks Phillipa. We had a great time staying at your place. We loved the sunshine and the views! Best side of the lake to be on in the winter time. Traffic was a non issue and it was really easy to get everywhere we needed to go. Having a water taxi just down the hill was excellent, saved us with the hassle of parking in Q-town. Your house was really warm and cozy as. "
