This is a very charming, beautifully furnished, immaculate and sunny two-story home with an upstairs Rental Flat and the owner's Flat downstairs. The home is located on a dead end street at a lagoon, so there is a peaceful water view from upstairs. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. Parking in the driveway is reserved for one (1) guest's automobile. Visiting guests just drop off and pick up. I share the driveway. The Flat is 1200 sq. and quite spacious. There are two large bedrooms both with pillow top queen mattresses. Can accommodate 4-5 guests with a 3-day minimum stay. The bathroom is also quite large. One bedroom rented as a single or two guests in one bedroom at the standard rate of $189 per night and $199 on Friday and Saturday nights. Please note: Holidays and summer months will have an increased daily rental fee and also a 4-5-day minimum stay in summer months (see rates). If the second bedroom is used for additional guests there is an additional fee of $25 per person per night. Cleaning fee is $125. There is a twin mattress that can be used for an additional $25 for a 5th person or child. The white bedroom has a mini office/study off of a walk-in closet with a panoramic view of the lagoon. The dining room and living room are combined and adjacent to a newly renovated small kitchen that is fully equipped. It has a gas stove and microwave and a gorgeous view of a huge, whimsically landscaped backyard and a small peek of the lagoon. Beautiful, original hardwood floors throughout. Plenty of closet space. The large bathroom has also been completely renovated with new slate flooring, bowl sink, brand new shower doors, The linen closet is also fully equipped! There is a separate water closet next to the bathroom with new toilet. Gorgeous diamond pane windows with wood blinds throughout. Forced air heating and a cooling system (but not air conditioning), and ceiling fans in most rooms.
What makes this Flat so desirable is the privacy you can have, if there is more than one guest. The two bedrooms allow that and also the small office area off the white bedroom for a quiet place to work as it has a door that closes. Everyone can have a place of privacy to read, take a nap, watch their own TV, have a private telephone conversation, etc. Also, you can access Netflix & HBO for movies in the Living Room TV, and a DVD on the side of the TV in Living Room . WiFi is provided. There is also two luggage racks in walk-in closet.
The backyard is available for a quiet place to read, sit and have coffee in the morning, afternoon wine, etc. No type of parties are allowed.
