Barbara & Ed, Thank you for the wonderful time. Both of you brought me coffee almost everyday by the pool. My wife doesn't even do that!! We definitely will be back if you will have us. Myron B.

Barbara and Ed, Thanks so much for your friendly hospitality! We had an awesome time in Boston and Gloucester and the house worked wonderfully as our hub of activity and rest. It was so nice to relax in and by the pool and to BBQ in the evening. We head to England in a couple of months for a 2-3 year period. Staying here with family and friends was a wonderful reunion before we leave. We pray that God will bless you for being 'a blessing'. With Love, Tim & Patricia P.

Barbara & Ed: Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts this week! Your love for Christ Jesus shines through everything you do and your service to others is unmatched!

Thank you! Thank you for your gracious hospitality to us during our first Boston experience! We so appreciate the lovely accommodations and were amazed at all the extras you provided. We especially enjoyed getting to know you and learning your faith story. God bless you both as you reach out to so many, many people. Jim & Vera, Austin, MN

Wow! What an incredible experience we had at Seaside Escape. Ed & Barbara are the most kind-hearted souls we have ever met. Their hospitality & generosity were beyond what we could have ever imagined. We felt at home & a part of their family from the moment we arrived. Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay. The family BBQ's at Ed & Barbara's pool, exploring the beaches of Winthrop, taking advantage of all that Houston has to offer has been such a memorable experience. We feel so blessed to have met such wonderful hosts! Thank you Ed & Barbara for embracing our family! Love, Marc, Rachel, Mara, Benjamin, Audrey & Genevieve
