When I arrived at Edith and Leon Tuback’s place at the top of Pigeon Valley, I instantly felt at home. They greeted me warmly and made sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. Their hospitality set the tone for the rest of my visit.

Their place is a haven for nature lovers. The tropical garden attracts a variety of beautiful birds, creating a colorful parade of feathers. And on those hot summer days, the swimming pool is the perfect spot to cool off and relax.
