Interaction with guests
We want to provide our guests with optimal service so we are available to them if anything should go wrong or just to suggest our favorite breakfast spot within walking distance. Guests receive our phone numbers and we make it a point to greet all guests personally to put them at ease with our property and the neighborhood. Although we are always available, we understand the importance of privacy when one is vacationing-so we are happy to respect that.
