Dear Rebecca & Jack, Congratulations on creating this glorious haven. I love all the design elements, the lighting effects inside and out & the way the garden is incorporated. A late afternoon bath, sipping the bubbly was divine. Thankyou!
“A sensual and captivating experience, living art, living in art, tasting art, seeing and feeling art…The expression of another’s dream shared with others is a way of connecting the beauty in you to the beauty in me…tasting the food cooked by the famous chef in the artful home of the beautiful couple, drinking the Devil’s wine…aaaah, A sigh of joy, thankyou.”
