Sirpa was super nice, I had arrived earlier than we both anticipated and she was extremely accommodating. The home was super cute and had a lovely porch to lounge around in the sun.

My host was unable to be there, her son did greet me and explained the basics. Love the original art everywhere and would have enjoyed meeting Sirpa. Very nice walk from the house down to the bay and only 25 min. to Picton and the ferry.
