.You may even find you have the house to yourself....You do need to have an adventurous spirit to be able to deal with living with strangers....however I do try to be the cement between people and find things they have in common and place them accordingly....The accommodation is economical and suits the traveler on a budget.

Other Things to Note
We are near a free outdoor swimming pool open May til September. A picturesque 17th century harbour and seafront parade is a 5 minute walk away (Mutton Cove and Mount Wise)
No excessive drinking.
I would just like people to respect one another and be considerate with other residents
Jean was really welcoming and was very chatty. She gave me some good tips about where to pick up some food etc.
I think she is used to hosting in the summer, as she mentioned, so a visit in March caught her off guard slightly but we got the things in order soon enough.
Nous avons trouvé le logement très facilement. Nous arrivions par bateau en soirée et devions rouler à gauche pour la première fois. Une place était disponible juste devant le logement. Jean nous a accueillie et invité à visiter le logement. au premier étage il y a un salon avec une cuisine et la salle de bain/wc. Au 2ème étage trois chambres une avec un lit double une autre avec un grand lit et la troisième avec trois lits simples. Il y a un grenier avec d'autres couchages. Nous sommes restés une seule nuit.
The experience was horrible. I say this in all honesty. The photo does not in any way reflect the actual appearance of the place. Walk thorugh the scruffy front door and you are met with a damp and musty smell. Jean is friendly and jovial but thats where it ends I m afraid. I felt reliefved that she allowed me to shorten my stay from three days to one day - and that was only because I felt bad. I had booked three nts because I had just had horrible airbnb experiences and was tired of having to pack my bags. Looking at the photo I was convinced it looked beautiful and she charged for cleaning and i thought therefore it was profesionaly managed (a proper B&B) - not the case Im afraid. I could go into detail but feel I just want people to view it first before ever staying. That will do.
Jean is definitely a great host and she provided me with a lot of useful information such like sightseeing and bus information. The house is near to a bus stop and it takes 10 mins to the city center. However, the house is a bit different from the pictures on the website. More simple I think. But it's absolutely clear and comfortable, especially the bed.
