Hi, Sarah and Michael would love to invite you to come and stay at our modern Tango castle called "Taic Mhor" - in Gaelic this means "Strong Tower".
We enjoy having people around. Monthly dances and weekly tango lessons, harp concerts or just a gathering of friends. Come and join us for a quiet night in, or a jumping off place to visit the city or new found friends.
We live in a quiet suburb close to shops and a good transport network of buses. We enjoy travelling to many places, the most recent being South America on a dancing odyssey and Philippines.
Easy going and relaxed, peace and quiet in our back section means we hear birdsong at sunrise and even the occasional delight of bell bird song or fantails playing at dusk.
Our cat, Moxxy, frustrates and entertains us, sometimes both at the same time! She loves dances as it means the have unlimited love and attention for two solid hours from various willing and unwilling people....
We are a busy married couple living in a gorgeous home. We are blessed with a very wide circle of friends.
Michael is a self styled gourmand who creates the odd disaster both within the kitchen and without. He tends to be casual so be very explicit with your instructions as no two meals are the same!
We are both warm and dedicated to your comfort and well being.
