During your stay
The host doesn't live on-site but is always available by phone text or call.
In 1972 I made my first trip out of the United States, to Paris, France. Since that time I’ve been to over 53 countries. I have just returned from Cuba. Believe me when I say Heaven is on earth right here where we are. I love to travel, but there is no place like home.
No matter where in the world I would be, I would never be ready to leave it. I always felt like I was unfaithful to my home, in Texas, when I would yearn to stay longer.
I solved that problem by returning to some of my favorite countries at least one more time and sometimes more.
Now I am hosting. I’ve taken all the things I could think of that are essential to me, when I travel and have implemented them in the Pecan Grove.
I have declared myself the Leona Helmsley (Helmsley Palace of New York) of Melissa, Texas. Of course, this is a joke but not totally.
Sleeping is vital. When you sleep is when your brain and body heal. All the sheets and towels are 100% cotton. 
After my first in the ’70s to France, I became obsessed with third world countries. I made two trips to India and stayed six weeks each time. I visited the city where Krishna was born and sleep on the ground, like a camper.
Today, camping to me is “slow room service.” 
Pecan Grove, named appropriately because the ranch house is nestled and surrounded by 200-year-old Pecan and Magnolia trees. The gourmet kitchen is enormous and has at least one of everything one could think of that you would want to use while cooking. It has rice cookers, bread machines, and other gadgets, some you may wonder what they are used for. I even brought over a beautiful set of china for 12.
Enjoy and take care of our property as you would your own. No smoking allowed. We prefer no one runs around the house outside, naked.
