Interaction with guests
We're available to answer any questions that may arise, plus we will provide a folder in the studio with relevant information for all electrical appliances, as well as additional local information regarding tourist attractions and restaurants etc.
Please remove shoes inside the front door in basket provided.
Please feel free to engage with the two very friendly pugs who reside in the pool area - always taking care to close the gates so they don't get out!
The pool will not be available after Easter, until early December.
Interior Designer - I'm retired now but still have a passion to decorate, whether it's an interior, exterior or my garden - plus anything I'm asked to do for family and friends. I'm also a passionate family person, with children, grandchildren and elderly parents who keep me busily involved. Also, I adore my animals and we have two active little pug dogs and a beautiful cat, who with my hard-working husband, complete our family. We hope our Airbnb guests will enjoy the hard work that has gone into presenting our studio. We look forward to hosting you.
