The Cross family: Anthea is a born and bred South Australian native and Stu a bit of a mutt from all over.
For a decade, from her mid-twenties, Anthea travelled the world, and Stu, who lived in the UK until he was sixteen, went to University and lived for twenty plus years in Southern California.
As a couple, they have lived in Sydney, Colorado and California before settling in South Australia with their two young boys.
Having seen a fair bit of the world they both feel lucky to be able to live in The Vale and bring you an accommodation offering on par with luxurious accomodation world wide.
