There are absolutely no words to describe our stay with Carol. As a missionary I travel al over the world, this year I have already traveled to 5 continents. I stay in people's homes all year around and have personally met thousands of people. Yet in my 3 decades of travelling, I have only met a few people as amazing as Carol. From the communication before our trip, (our first trip to South Africa, so I had many questions which she all patiently answered) to the picking us up near her house, to the outstanding, loving reception when we got there, was all very overwhelming to us.
She made our whole family (my wife, my 2 adult sons and me) feel so loved, accepted and welcome.
There is really not enough space to share our feelings and positive impressions here. I highly recommend staying at that place. Should we ever return to Johannesburg, we would stay no where else but with her.
My wife commented the second day that Carol doesn't feel like a host, it feels like she is our friend.
The breakfast she fixed us, (which she didn't have to do) was so good, and so lovingly prepared. The interaction with her was so wonderful.
I wish that there would be more people like Carol in this world, it would be a much better place.
There is not one thing that I could imagine she could have done better.
The room was really nice, we could use her porch, enjoy hanging out, playing cards, interact with her amazing dogs and birds.
When we just wanted to have time as a family, she gave us the space, when we wanted to interact with her, she was there for us. She was so kind and sensitive.
If I would ever need a place to withdraw in order to recuperate, I know where to go.
