  • Description


    We are a family of ten including myself, my two teenagers, our two dogs, the cat, Gnocchi and our tiny flock of two chickens and two ducks. A year ago last March we left our home in Cape Town South Africa for a new adventure in Savannah, Georgia. We were fortunate to find our 1920's Arts and Crafts home in the historic Gordonston neighborhood. We are working to restore our wonderful home and its gardens to their original splendor.

    For the months of July and August we will be roughing it at our waterfront home in Maine. We would love to have company. Please contact me for more info on this opportunity.
