Interaction with guests
SANA is a cooperative, in that any services provided to you by our cook, driver or manager are done directly for you. I do not profit financially by their working for you. SANA benefits enormously because our guests rave about the service they receive from The SANA Crew: Erick, Noami and Frank. Yeudi is our house sitter. The property is gated and locked with an intercom and a bell to ring at the gate. An ETA is helpful Shuttle is available upon request. Flight details etc would be required
