The central staircase is open entirely to the skylight which is about 34 feet high from the main floor. This skylight floods all three levels with lots of light all day.

The entire townhome was recently renovated except for the master bedroom.

Guest AccessYou will have access to the three-level townhome, plus the outdoor patio with chairs and a barbecue. No backyard access, but there is a small courtyard outside in front of the townhome, with some benches and flowers... it's a great spot for relaxing outdoors or taking wedding photos.
I tend to leave behind some food in the fridge and cupboards (e.g., tea, coffee, staples, etc.), so feel free to help yourself to anything in the house, including some bottles of my home-made red wine in the living room. Also, in the high cabinet pantry in the kitchen, there are lots of bathroom and kitchen supplies you can help yourself to. You will find stuff there such as extra soap bars, wine bottle openers, thermos's for day trips, water jugs, etc. Interaction with GuestsI live just 5 minutes away, so I am available to assist you any time during your stay. I have also put together a very detailed welcome package that include lots of details such as web site links and phone numbers for nearby restaurants, malls, parks/trails, workout facilities, churches, transit options, etc. Once you confirm your booking, send me your email address and I will send it over to you.
