When we have guests, we generally do not use the outdoor area so that our guests have full access to the area.

Inside, an open-concept retreat awaits. A TV is available in the space and our WiFi is fast and great for streaming your favorite Netflix shows. Pile into a super comfy L-shaped sofa in the living area to watch your shows, read, relax, cuddle and chat with your friends, family or colleagues.

Your own private bathroom has a tub/shower combo and a spacious double vanity, equipped with clean and soft bath towels, hand towels, wash towels and a bath mat and the essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, body wash, Qtips and a hairdryer.

We are a young married couple who has always daydreamed about restoring fixer uppers and bringing new life into good neighborhoods. In 2016, we finally found our home with great bones, took a plunge of faith, and made our dream a reality! Our historic home has been wonderfully updated and remodeled into a modern inside that reflects our own personal style and feels like a relaxing retreat for our little family each day. We hope you love it as much as we do!
