Are you looking for somewhere a little different to stay? This back house is a converted artist's workshop situated in the shade of a giant oak tree. It invites reflection amidst stained glass views and tree-lofted contemplative ease. It is where delight and the unexpected meet, through a secret garden gate, just for you. Amidst items that tell a story, the sanctuary will encourage you to reflect on your own. Awaiting is your own creative retreat and quiet time for connecting within.


Entire place
You’ll have the space to yourself and will only share it with those you’re traveling with.

After reading so many reviews raving about this place, I had high expectations. I was not disappointed. The ambiance brings a certain peacefulness that is hard to come by. The location was great, hidden away in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen had many tea options which I loved…

Julie and Pete's place felt like a rare find. After experiences that felt more substandard than not on AirBnb, I was starting to not even want to go through it anymore, but this place restored my faith. A lovely oasis away from the busy-ness of it all. A reminder of a slower…

Oh my gosh, this place was out of my dreams. I felt like I was hidden away in a secret bungalow. Lush gardens, mysterious, intriguing / felt adventurous as I arrived when it was quite dark. The exterior iron gate entrance was a hidden, safe and unassuming beginning. Once inside…
