Located just 20 miles (32 km) from Canal Park, it only takes about 25 mins to drive there. If you’re coming from downtown, its only 18 miles (29 km) away. Since the premise has one room, the space is a bit limited. However, guests get an opportunity to enjoy the DVD player and SmartTV as they chill out on the couch. The studio is also located on the water edge. The host has stocked most of the necessary kitchenette items that a guest needs to prepare their meals, including toaster, Keurig K-Latte, tea/water kettle, small fridge combo unit, a sink, and a convection oven.
