The space

This detached space was built with an au pair or man cave in mind. We believe that life should be spent outdoors in nature and the indoor space should be a space where time is spent to rest and rejuvenate therefore it should be simple. It is built cozy for someone traveling light and solo with a minimalist mind. Sea grass twin bed frame with modern quilt. Separate entrance through the side gate of the property for added privacy. Modern, yet quaint bathroom with a corner shower. A laundry room is within the space. Space heater and fan available in addition to a mini coffee maker for guests who need one.

I only stayed here for 1 night and didn't get the opportunity to meet Kim and Marcus. But they accommodate for my late arrival which was much appreciated. The buglowe is cute, clean and private - just perfect for 1 person. The coffee facilities and bottled water were nice touches. Thank you!

The space was very clean, the backyard was lovely with a foundation and water falls which was very pleasant to hear as I rested with the window opened. The host offered coffee and water in the room which was very nice. The room is very small, as is the shower, there was no place to really sit other than the bed. The bed is very squeaky but still comfortable. The host allowed me my space which was very much appreciated because I was on a work visit and didn’t have much time to socialize. Would is stay here again? Absolutely.

Perfect little retreat room in a sweet and friendly home, located in a quiet neighborhood close to good food. Clean sheets, private bath, excellent morning coffee and the babble of water outside the widow from a fountain in a charming courtyard. Delightful! And the hosts are extremely nice.

This was such a lovely place to stay! You can tell that Kim and Marcus take great pride in their home and in this little unit, too. It was very comfortable and cozy, and they provided me with a space heater since it has gotten colder at night. Very great experience! Oh, and if you love the sound of trickling/babbling water just outside the window, this place is for you! :) Thank you so much, Kim and Marcus!

The best thing about the unit is that it's self-contained so I was able to let myself in without disturbing the family despite a late check-in. The bedroom is very small, but very well organized and accommodated with amenities. You can leave the door open to the laundry room to enlarge the space, but this area is shared and connects to the bathroom. The hosts thoughtfully left a heater on for me so that the room was warm when I arrived. The generously oversized bathroom cabinet makes it a bit difficult to bend over the small sink, so watch your head. Shower is very nice but hot water may be limited in the early morning. Mattress was moderately firm and comfortable. Pillows were thin but soft. There is a water fountain outside which is very pleasant to listen to while going to sleep. The only minor downside was the lack of a solid shade, so that light could not be entirely blocked out for sleeping, and privacy may be a bit of an issue during the day when the children are outside. The residence is located very close to a nice coffee house.
