The space
We have renovated our 1960s villa to include this purpose-designed studio/apartment, which is physically part of the main house, but has its own separate entrance and is quiet, private and self-contained. There is also ample off-street parking.
Amenities include: a queen-sized bed, a double sofa-bed, top quality linen and fluffy towels, electric blanket, heating and air conditioning. The main room is fully carpeted and has a comfortable sofa, a flat-screen TV, DVD player, free wifi, digital clock, clothes rack and hangers, suitcase rack, bedside tables and reading lamps. One of the power points also has a double USB charging outlet for your phone and computer; there is also small table and chairs. Outside, your deck, with views of the inlet and orchard, has a table and chairs where you can enjoy a glass or two at the end of the day.
The kitchen area includes a bench and sink, fridge, electric frying pan, kettle, toaster, microwave, cutlery, chopping board, crockery and glassware. We supply tea, coffee, milk, sugar and salt and pepper. We can also provide a simple continental breakfast (extra charge applies) on request, with advanced notice. There are basic cooking facilities in the room.
The bathroom contains fluffy quality towels, a spacious glass shower, a hand basin/vanity unit, a toilet, a heated towel rail, a room heater and a night-light. We provide quality shampoo, conditioner, shower and hand gel and a hairdryer. The apartment sleeps two but there’s provision for additional guests as the sofa turns into a double bed.
We are located in an area with working orchards so at certain times of the year you will hear machinery working in the background during daylight hours. Some road noise is also possible during morning/evening peak hours in daylight hours.
