This place is absolutely magical and whats even more amazing is Julias warmth and nack for hosting. Not only did she design the space but she adds so many sweet touches. This litte get-away was perfect for my husband and my wedding anniversary! She went above and beyond to make us feel pampered and relaxed.

I would absolutely recommend her Tiny Tiki Hideaway to everyone i know. :) :) :)
