          Do you offer a pool or splash area for guest to cool off in the summer?

          Response from HanniaW | Property representative |
          We do not have a pool , but the local Municipal pool is 3 blocks away.
          How many individual rooms are there & do they all have en suite/ private bathrooms? Are there rooms of different sizes/ sleeping space that can accommodate families or friends traveling together? Do any have two bedrooms or bedroom & separate living room space? Do any of the rooms have refrigerators, coffee/tea makers, cooking appliances? Or offer space for guest to store drinks/foods that need to be kept cold?
