I'm not sure if this helps a bit at all, but simply knowing that there are options out there (the villa owners who are here) makes a difference to me.
I can (and do) remind people who are coming here for a visit, that if they want offsite, there are reputable villa owners available.
I know that one of our Mods works with a villa owner here.
Growth is a slow and steady pace, quite often.
Not sure what the down on the list means, though.
