Landscaping Underway

Great news everyone we have started landscaping the (soon to be) private garden outside the studio. We have purchased plants and have been busy preparing the ground for them to go in over the next few days. Here are some pictures to help you visualise our plans.

The pathway leading to the studio. We will have ferns growing among the rocks that line the path and there will be a pair of rose bushes on either side of the door.

The rose bushes waiting, patiently to go in. The bricks in the background are going to be used to pave part of the garden and build an outdoor table. Al fresco dining in summer. Pure bliss!

It looks a bit bleak now, but once the plants are all in it will be lovely and green… We are going to be planting bamboo along the paving and that will screen the garden from the parking area ensuring privacy.

The garden will improve the exterior aesthetics immeasurably and greatly contribute to the quality of your stay. We look forward to hosting you.

Renovation update

We are steadily making progress on the renovations and decoration of the studio. The outdoor painting is well under way, although not yet finished.

First coat done, but as you can see still not finished…

We have also managed to furnish and equip the kitchenette and dining area.

We have also abandoned the sleeper couch idea in favour of a full size double bed. We lose some comfy seating during the day but gain a more comfortable night’s rest! We think that was the right call.

We look forward to hosting you soon. Please use our contact page to make a booking, or indeed to ask any questions you may have.

Open for business

The amazing news is that with effect from 15 March 2017, we are open for business. We are able to accommodate you for your short term stays at our stylish, comfortable, quite and private studio apartment.

Just a reminder we offer self catering or bed and (continental) breakfast accommodation. we have already received bookings, so please contact us soon to secure your booking and avoid disappointment.

We are still doing some work to the exterior of the studio (painting the outside walls, landscaping the private garden etc)… As the pictures below show.

The interior however is done (although we will still decorate the walls with some nice pictures in the very near future).

Keep an eye on this page for more progress reports on the exterior paint job!
