Do you think the sentence is natural? Thank you.

It sounded too good to be true, but I replied, thanking him for his exceptional generosity, that we had no plans to go back.

    In my opinion, the "I replied" does not sound "natural." I would probably say something like:

    It sounded too good to be true, so I thanked him for his generosity and told him (that) we had no plans to go back / return.
