Thank you so much for our warm acceptance and your gracious hospitality on our recent stay at Elephant Walk. Without your advice and constant attention to detail, we would not have enjoyed ourselves nearly so much. Thank you again for such an enjoyable, as well as profitable and understanding. Hope to visit soon, again.
