I knew accomodation was attached to hosts home but expected to be more private from the description given. I did not like that we could hear hosts moving around inside house & outside our room and it just felt like there was no where private for us to be as room opened into house or drive way. The driveway entrance is very tight and drive itself very steep, with no turn around space at the bottom. I personally felt it quite expensive for the facilities provided.
There is plenty of space to turn your car around - unfortunately I had parked in the turning area briefly and would have shifted if I had been asked. Everyone else, including large SUVs, have managed fine. We have taken care to separate the studio from our home acoustically and many of our guests have commented on how quiet and private the studio itself, the garden seat and spa pool deck are. We live on site so are available to respond quickly to all requests if you call us or knock on our door.
