One living area has a daybed, and one has a sofa that converts to a full bed. An inflatable full bed available upon request. Each bed has high thread count linens and ample pillows.

The kitchen has been recently remodeled and has a full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and a tea kettle. Lots of dishes, glasses, pots and pans are also available.

Both bathrooms have walk in showers. The hot water is on demand on we provide ample fresh towels. The house has a washer/dryer if you need to freshen your clothes during your stay.
