We arrived after dark and the house is a little difficult to find as the streets are poorly lit but with a GPS, it wasn't bad at all. The house itself is well-lit and on a street corner. There just don't seem to be any street lights other than the corners and the neighbourhood is definitely older and a bit run-down. It is a five or ten minute drive off the I-5 when you don't know your way.
That being said, the house itself was lovely. Lots of antiques and decor to look at. Very clean and many details attended to. We stayed only one night. My back has been bothering me a lot lately and I managed okay on the bed in the Matisse room. Enjoyed a really tasty dinner at The Ring of Fire, very nearby drive.
The lounge areas are furnished with antiques as well which are so pretty but not the most comfortable to sit on for long. However, it is a Heritage house so part and parcel of it.
I appreciated the efforts in the morning to accommodate my gluten-free, dairy-free diet. Breakfast was simple, but very nice thank you.
