Charming old European-style terrace. Outdoor grill. Herb garden.
Everything you will need for your stay is provided other than food. (We supply all linens, towels, dishes, cleaning supplies, etc.)
3 Bedrooms: 2 of the bedrooms rooms have a double bed, the third has two twin beds. Very comfortable beds with lots of pillows.
This is a home that is currently lived in by the owner. We travel a great deal and let the house when we are not at home. So it is not an empty house. Plenty of storage areas are provided for guests, but some closets and bureaus are in use and unavailable to guests.
The house is normally only let by the week. We can make occasional exceptions so please inquire if you are looking for a shorter stay.
Our cat, Maggie Mae, lives here full-time. But she's very quiet. And friendly. Unless you're allergic to cats you will not find her a problem. My assistant, Donna, comes in daily to feed her and to check on guests to see if any assistance is needed.

Huge beautifully furnished home with everything we needed for a family vacation
The owner Kate, and caretaker Donna took great care of us. Donna promptly responded to all questions amd is a great problem solver. She even decorated a Christmas tree for us! My whole family loved the house which is equiped for anything. Plenty of space to spread out or all gather. There's a lovely large dining room and well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and lots of space for parking. I would jump at the chance to stay here again.
Thank you, Laurel. Donna and I try very hard to make a our guests comfortable. It's so good to hear when we've succeeded. I hope to see you and your family again one day. Best regards, Kate
