Interaction with guests
I like the guest to have their privacy but also to feel free to interact if they would like to.
Living so close to the city and being able to wander around the waterfront to get to whatever it is that you feel like doing gives you plenty of choices. I have had many a guest come back from a day out exploring wishing they had more time to stay and play .
Due to the closeness to town you can easily get around on foot. Bus stop and the end of the street. Taxi ride is normally 5 minutes call away. Railway station is a 6-7 minute taxi ride. Ferry terminal maximum 10 minute ride. Airport is a 11-15 minute ride by car.
