Tan family from Singapore said September 2018 “We stayed in quite a few places this trip, and this place was not only the best overall, it was the one that truly felt like home. I actually wished this place was my own place. Kylie has a small CD collection, which was really cool- we played it throughout breakfast! Preparing breakfast on the counter felt like the set of Nigellas Kitchen. It was AWESOME! The ducks were also really hungry and ate a ton of bread. Thank you Kylie! WE hoped to stay longer but its time to go. Your home was indeed one of the highlights of our stay.”
