All the housemates of S.O.A.L. house (sheppard's of abundant land) are friendly and helpful, we all have multiple schedules; so we are not always right in front of our guests. Christy is always reachable through her cell (text preferred) to help with any questions or concerns - guests are welcome to contact her at any point during their stay for any reason they might have.
Our sun room and certain bedrooms have plants in them, but they are fairly innocuous and shouldn't trigger any allergies. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me to discuss how we can make your stay perfectly comfortable and absolutely amazing!
