The Diamond Door studio apartment is a quiet and pleasant stay, just a few minutes walk from downtown Belfast and the Atlantic ocean. Situated over an unused garage in an 1800s colonial, a flight up from a sweet peas and poppy patch, the studio is private, artful, and cozy.
The Diamond Door studio is neat and minimal. Just the basics, but the right ones. There will always be freshly ground 44 North coffee (roasted in Deer Isle!) on the shelf and local raw milk in the fridge. Summer flowers in the vase. And a morning treat...
I am a new Mother, and the Studio has become a handmade world for my family. The couch I upholstered with fabric I made, the ceramics I turned on the wheel, many of the fabrics I quilted. The built ins, and woodworking was all done by my ever talented partner.
There are loads of books, and a couple of old music makers. Some wooden toys for kids. And a TV set up with a collection of VHS/ DVDs. A full kitchen. Counter space with bar for sitting. Small closet. Queen sized bed. Tiny, but full bathroom!
We hope the Diamond Door can act as haven and home on your travels!
The studio is set behind the Main house, which is a private home. The parking space for the studio is in front of the Main house. Guests will park, and walk (quietly and respectfully for the Main house tenant) down the driveway to the Diamond Door.
Please note... The studio is up one steep flight of stairs (with a banister!) We've enclosed the top of the stairwell and put in a wooden gate, so parents can feel safe with young children.
Общение с гостями
I live 15 miles outside of Belfast, and am available to help in case any problem arises. Also of course for suggestions and help.
That said I am a full time mom to a toddler and a newborn... so not always at arms length from my phone. On check-in day I will txt you when the studio is all set for your arrival (usually earlier than the designated 'check-in' time). You will most likely check yourself in as usually I find people check-in on the later end of the day...right during our 'bed-time' routine.
