Goeiemore Sudwala,

Net 'n kort boodskap om julle te bedank vir die heerlike week wat ons by julle gekuier het.

Baie dankie vir elke warm vriendelike glimlag vanaf die oomblik wat ons by die oord aangekom het totdat ons weer vertrek het. Julle het ons elke oomblik laat welkom voel. Dit is so aangenaam wanneer die skoonmaker aan die deur klop en as jy oopmaak begroet word deur 'n vriendelike persoon wat gimlag van oor tot oor. Mens kan sien dat julle 'n wenspan het en dat almal lekker werk self die mense wat in die tuine werk begroet jou met 'n glimlag en 'n vriendelike wuif wanneer jy ookal my hulle verby ry of stap.

Dankie dat julle agteroor gebuig het om ons te akkomodeer toe ons 'n misverstand gehad het met die bespreking ons waardeer dit ongelooflik baie.

Die programme wat deurentyd gereel was op die oord was pret gewees en die heerlike ete met Mom's Night Off was absoluut 'n bonus - komplimente aan die sjef!

Julle kan trots wees op die pragtige oord wat ten alle tye pragtige skoon en ten alle tye onderhou is.

Dit was 'n voorreg om by julle te kon kuier - hou aan met wat julle doen - dit is 'n wen resep.

Vriendelike groete.
Les en Jeanette Oberholzer
