Other Things to Note
Room 2.5 has a lower price because it has French Doors (sealed) and above them a large glass skylight overlooking rm #2 and thus not the greatest sound proofing. Great for families needing two adjoining rooms. Actually we're a quiet place so noise is a negligible issue. If your neighbor is talking loud on phone, just knock on their door.
Please lock the front and back doors after passing through them. You are welcome to use the kitchen, but please store food in containers and help keep it clean. There is no smoking in the house or in the garden.
