LOVE NOTE: “we will absolutely be back”

“Cyndi & Staff.

Thank you for everything! All the special details and warm welcoming atmosphere made for a most wonderful weekend. Your house is beautiful and elegant, we will absolutely be back. 🙂

It was a pleasure getting to know you and sharing stories. We loved The Alligator Farm (will be doing the zip-line next time) and the Haunted St. Augustine Ghost Tour, visited/walked all the way up to the light house and more memorable of all was Anastasia State Park…where he popped the question in the perfect spot between the sand dunes. I foresee future anniversaries being celebrated there.

Much much love,

Jen & Matt Rinder.

p.s. – Breakfast was fantastic! Thank you for accommodating our unique diet, truly delicious.”
