Great old Wichita home, beautifully landscaped. Sean was great to help us pull into the "very level" driveway. And back out the next morning. Enjoyed swinging on the front porch swing.

Unfortunately, busy schedules didn’t allow for me to meet the Rafferty‘s, but I know I’ll be back through at some point. Communication was clear and complete allowing for an easy arrival and set up. Thanks so much for your hospitality and generosity!
