Top Tips

Expect to find yourself in a pleasant house with a well-facilitated kitchen and a swimming pool. It’s in a calm neighbourhood (Richmond Hill) right next to the excellent restaurants of Stanley Street.
One of the double rooms with private bathroom has a bath in it. If you’ve been on the road for a while, you might want to request that room to take advantage of said bath ;).
Don’t come here looking for a party. This accommodation almost has more of a pleasant homestay feel about it.
If you want to cook, the is only a 10-minute walk away.
