This is our second time staying at Carolyn’s house and we would definitely stay again. We are 5 students from McTimoney College of Chiropractic and having Carolyn put us up again was like coming back home. The house is very spacious and extremely unique in style and decor. The kitchen is fantastic as we all love to cook and she has plenty of cafetière’s for the coffee snobs among us ;D! Carolyn made the check in swift and without and issues even though we did not meet. She kept in contact trough out our stay to ensure we were having a pleasant stay. The beds are super comfortable the bathrooms are spacious and one has an olympic size bath tub! All of us would sit on the huge corner sofa and watch Ironfist on Netflix, being served tea by her butler coffee table (if you stay you will know what we mean). We all would highly recommend and will be back next year…. If Carolyn has us back :D Ben, Marielle, Tom, Louis and Karin.
