Nice comfortable and "homey" property. You really feel like you are sharing a home with the owners who are very nice.

Lovely home that has several shared spaces that are beautifully appointed. We stayed for 2 nights, choosing this location primarily for convenience. We felt safe and secure while we were sleeping and the breakfast was very nice. We only experienced the garden through the windows because of the weather but it was simply beautiful.

The host has taken the theme from the book, The Secret Garden, and fully manifested the spirit of this wonderful story in the development of the property. There are many thoughtful touches and hospitality is abundant. The entire upstairs floor is what you get when renting this property. The upstairs floor would be shared with whomever is renting the other bedroom. This would be a terrific place for a family of 4 as you would not be sharing with anyone else and you could prepare dinner here, play games, read, work on the jigsaw puzzle, etc.

The room was clean and comfortable and the hosts were friendly and helpful. The common areas (living room, kitchen, dining area) were clean and well stocked. There are 3 bedrooms with a private bathroom and shower for each
