The space

The cottage has a cosy feel, with good sun and light in the summer, and a heat pump for use on winter evenings. The living and bedroom areas are a reasonable size for a cottage and there is a separate study and laundry area for your use if you wish. The lounge opens via french doors onto a deck and open lawn/garden area.

- Harry the cat may want a feed and to enjoy your company. You are welcome to accommodate him or lock the cat door as he has a feeder.
- I have an excellent relationship with my neighbours - while it is private they are close by. I have a large driveway for your use but please be mindful of noise if running large diesel vehicles or boats for lengths of time.
- Please park on the driveway and not up on the brick pathway beyond it - the pathway is not quite strong enough to support vehicles.

Thank you!

Definitely a comfy place to stay before you take the ferry in the morning at Gulf Harbour! Johanna provided some thoughtful touches around the house to make us feel welcome. Would recommend!

Johanna's place is perfect for a time away from the city. It was comfortable and well equiped, we found it perfect for our needs. We were lucky enough to find a little music keyboard in the house. The neighbourhood was nice and pleasant and a short drive away from the shops.
