10/10 Exceptional

This place exceeded my expectations. I stayed in room #4, and it was immaculate. The room had a lovely little living room, and then stairs that lead to the sleeping area. The sleeping area consists of two queen beds and a twin. On the outside of the room on the main floor it had a nice sitting area that was shaded, and another that was on the top floor right outside the bedroom. The little shop they have attached is so convenient, and the employees were all so helpful, and kind. On a side note the place is in walking distance of a great restaurant, breakfast cafe, icecream shop, and local bar.
