Charming! Great location

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed in the house for a long weekend. We all had our own room and bed. It was really perfect. Location is within walking distance of almost everything we did. Though we did take pedicabs and a carraige to dinner twice. Uber is cheap to the airport. The house is fully stocked with kitchen stuff, plenty of cozy towels and linens.

Would be a great house for a larger group as well.
