***Some reviews for the downstairs listing have implied that this property is very elegant. As pleased as we are with that impression, the accommodation is not 5-star. We do hope, however, that it is always relaxing and comfortable and that guests will feel entirely free to ask for anything they need.
If your vehicle is towing a trailer, the driveway has one tight turn that could potentially be unmaneuverable. Best to unhitch for that corner and walk it around.
We welcome families, but our house is not toddler-safe; we are best for families with children under six months (not yet mobile) or over six years old due to the hazards of stairs, pool, and balconies. We have a wonderful collection of toys, stuffed animals, a dress-up basket, and our favorite children's books.
— Check-in and departure times can be flexible. Let us know what you need ahead of time.
— Because the pool is not fenced, children will need an adult watching them whenever the pool is in use.
— Please respect the property and that of our neighbours.
— No smoking inside.
— Events and parties are considered individually. We want to keep our neighbours happy.
— We welcome all families, but our house is not toddler-safe; we are best for families with children under six months (not yet mobile) or over six years old due to the hazards of stairs, pool, and balconies.
