Your own private entrance next to your reserved parking space leads you behind the private gate to a double paned glass sliding door for your own private access to the bungalow. Inside you will find a brand new build out, impeccably maintained and with all new hardwood floors.
With the lighting you have the ability to design your own personalized ambiance throughout the space.
Enjoy the main room which is 600 square feet and offers luxurious and grand comfort with a very roomy lounge, including two plush comfortable couches and coffee and side tables perfect to hold a glass of wine, an inspired book you are reading or for your morning cup of coffee as you catch up with the news on the Samsung flatscreen TV.
There is an old-world writing desk in the lounge to inspire every artist within us by the energy and vibe of a recording studio that has been visited by some of music greats -Warren G, Jeff Tweedy, Raul Malo, Snoop Dogg, Butch Walker, Puddles the Clown to name a few.
With the intimate lighting all controlled for your pleasure, there are old-world sconces throughout the lounge romantically accentuating the space with crystal chandelier candle lighting.
The natural light source is delivered through two large windows and a double paned glass large sliding door all in the ‘Adjacent Room’. Thus if you ever prefer complete darkness during your stay it is yours with a single door being closed.
The queen-size bed has a most comfortable memory foam mattress and is located in this roomy lounge and adorned with soft high-end linens and bedding.
