The Garden Suite has been newly renovated and is beautifully decorated with eclectic art and a blend of vintage and modern furnishings. There is a flat screen TV and blue tooth MP3 player in the living room. Each of the 2 bedrooms has a queen bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need, including coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave, dishwasher bakeware and serving dishes . The bathroom has a soaker tub and both hand held and rain shower heads.
Note: The suite is located in our private family home and there is some sound transfer between floors. We make an effort to be quiet, especially during sleeping times, but please let us know if you have any specific needs or requests. Also, being on the ground floor, the ceilings, (8', 7') are comfortable for most but low for some. There are a couple of low spots in the hallway.
The suite looks out onto the garden, which has three separate areas: one secluded spot with hot tub, (shared with upstairs guests); a large private covered area with table, bench, chairs and BBQ; and a quite corner for relaxing with a book. There is one parking spot off the garden.
