***We have a few requests that we must spotlight. ***
Please, NO BBQ sauce is to be served at the house. Recent damage and stains to the furniture were very extensive. We have replaced and reupholstered and so we ask that our guest just skip serving BBQ at the house. Sorry about this but it's impossible to get it out of the linen and cotton upholstery and white cushion covers. :)

Gorgeous, Soft, Turkish Pool towels provided.
