I have never responded to a review of my house before, as I thought it would look tacky and kinda self-interested. Now that I'm closing up shop for the year, I really want to thank each and every single of you who stayed here and left nice comments. After what I went through with my dogs, this place became my mission and my sanctuary, and I have thrown most of the money I've earned back into improving the house. I love surprising people. And though it's not always convient to have to leave with my new pups while people stay, it's enabled me to both pay off bills and improve the house over and over again.
So a huge thank you to all of you who have made this possible. I coined this place the 'Oasis' because of the views, but wow, it's become so much more than that now.
It serves as a lesson to me: that when you go through something painful, yet channel that hurt/anger into something positive, rather than becoming cynical or bitter, dreams can come true. Love to all.
