Hello there!
We are the Host family; Steve, Millicent, Jaxon & Walker Hicks. Steve is the great nephew of Edna Russell. Edna lived to be a ripe age of 101 and was the kindest, sweetest soul you'd ever meet. She always had a cup of tea and a lunch ready to go for her many friends and neighbours to drop in. Edna tended to her gardens until she was well into her 90's, bringing kelp from the nearby beach! When Aunt Edna passed we purchased the house from her family who reside in the USA. We find that Edna's welcoming spirit lives on in this house and is felt by all who stay here. We strive to bring the same delightful experience to our guests as Aunt Edna would provide for her friends and family!
