While this home has three bedrooms, just know one is used as a study/library but with futons suitable for a child. As you enter this lovely Colonial Townhouse, on a corner in a small, twelve unit gated complex, you will find on the ground floor, a modern kitchen and breakfast area leading on to a large living room with adjacent dining area and a further sitting area in a three story glass atrium. On the second and third floors are the same –sized master/guest bedrooms, each with a full bathroom and bathtub. The icing on the cake is two-fold: the jaw-dropping views of the Parroquia from rooftop patio, previously mentioned or your morning coffee view from the lower, east-facing covered patio! Airfare for two and accommodations for a week included. Subject to availability, not available February 2020. Use by April 2020.
