We were able to get a late check in - which was really great. We contacted the owner who was super helpful and the room was nice.

Nice and spacious
We had quite a nice stay. The house is new, well furnished and thought through. We really enjoyed the stay as we were the only people there overnight, but could see how it might be more rowdy and congested if fully booked. In saying that, there is ample space in the house with each room, dinning area and a games/tv room, so plenty of space to escape to if needed. Breakfast was quite basic, but all you really needed. Small variety of single serve cereal packs with fruit, toast, and condiments available.
