Enjoy a unique, colorful, whimsical home on a private, forested 3/4acre. Within close walking distance to Grassy Point, Sandpiper beach and spectacular sunsets. Arthurs’ Court is also close to the Farmers’ Market, the Community Hall, Ford’s Cove marina and store, plus a Diving school. Most special is that we are very close to where the Mt. Geoffrey’s hiking and mountain biking trails begin.
Our home sleeps eight comfortably (4 adults and 4 kids, and a smaller child), plus two fold-out futons and a single fold out portable bed. Upstairs is the master bedroom, which has a double bed, and kids’ room, which has a bunk bed with a single on top and a double on the bottom plus a nook in the wall for a child, although others have slept there for the novelty. Downstairs is a queen-sized bay window bed with dressers in a curtained off area.
We have two bathrooms. Upstairs is literally a bathroom, with a sink and a large claw-foot tub surrounded by mosaics, driftwood, a large skylight above the tub and a large window to the side to stare into the serene forest and watch the birds. At night relax, light candles and stare up at the stars. Downstairs is a flush toilet, composting toilet, a urinal and a shower.
Our home is an open concept with the kitchen and living room. There are three entrances into the house with a sliding wooden door to the downstairs bathroom and a colorful stairway leading up to the main bedroom, kids room, and the clawfoot bathtub room.
Everything you might want will be there, including lots of board games, a trapeze, landline and internet. We provide: bar soap, dish soap, dishcloths, tea towels, toilet paper, and paper towel. We don’t have a dishwasher, but pretty much everything else, including a juicer, large dehydrator, a microwave, stand up popcorn maker, a deep freeze and much more.
Guests bring their own bedding and towels, but these can be included for an additional fee of $10/ bed and $5 for each set of towels (bath, hand, and face). We live on a dead-end with no neighbours usually, so you can be party it up, or enjoy the peace and quiet. Outside you will find hammocks, a beautiful garden, lots of flowers, fruit trees, a tire swing, a hanging silk for aerial yoga, a firepit, a propane fire pit ($30/week), propane BBQ, a tree-fort, a trampoline and three outside cats.
My adult son and I live on the property, but we have a separate entrance and although we aren’t’ very visible we will be there should you need anything at all to make your holiday the Best Ever!
A great place for kids of all ages is waiting to provide you with bonding family time and lasting holiday memories.
