Our Home space is great for the casual traveler coming through town on a very short term stay. It also works well for the children or travelling companions of those guests already booked for one of the private rooms on our calendar. We've basically added some cozy spaces to accommodate your needs here, by special arrangement. Some have said that even the couch is one of the most comfortable ever experienced!! Please note, there is a washroom with sink, but no tub or shower in this listing.
This is non-private, shared space, in the open common areas of our home, with no tub or shower (there is a lovely washroom). The comfortable single bed is in the DEN at the back of the house, which opens into the back garden through a sliding glass door. This room is also accessed through the kitchen and garage by host and other guests when preparing their meals. But it IS pretty nice and relatively quiet, with a lovely view to the garden. There is a second mattress which can be pulled/slid out from under the bed for your paying companion, as well as the amazing couch out in the living room ! Either way, you're only a few feet from the French-pressed coffee!!
You may access the kitchen, living room, downstairs toilet/washroom, and of course the den to the garden. **There is NO shower or bath associated with this space unless specifically approved by your host by special arrangement**. AND,
**ABSOLUTELY NO THIRD PARTY BOOKINGS WILL BE ALLOWED**
