It wouldn't have been wise if she told them that. They might have hassled her about taxes on the property and she isn't supposed to live here permanently on a tourist visa.
I always ask for 183 days and if they ask me why I want 183 days, then I explain them that my gf is Peruvian and I want to visit her for a long time or I tell them that I am intending to start a business and need time to arrange all the required paperwork. I always worked. I never got less than 183 days.
