Right in the zone.....

  • 5 of 5

......of everything peaceful, serene and perfect. This is a little slice of heaven, with endless views outside, hosts who make your stay memorable with little touches of delightful hospitality, and interior charms like a spiral staircase, color-drenched art, eclectic and comfortable furnishings, vintage and modern touches all combined to create an oasis for the senses. This home is close to everything but if you sit and let yourself feel the pull of its magic, you won't want to leave. It's in the angles of each room, the slant of the sunlight, the placement of furniture and abundance of books, cozy corners to curl up in and read, bluetooth music player if you want that, silence if you prefer, the hot tub just outside the door and did I mention those views...add in a superb massage by Suzan, and there is nothing else you could want. Charles and Lisa are the perfect hosts and we can't wait to return!
