I had booked with Calanthe artisan upon my friend's recommendation and it was a great decision. The house is very spacious and my children enjoyed just by staying in the house. Large dining table is available and definitely a good dining option to beat the queues at popular eateries. And I was totally taken away by how responsive Katherine was....

The house retains a lot of character unlike the overly furbished in some. It is very well maintained that you cant even find a speck of dust! A great location where most places can be explored within walking distance! A great space for family and big groups!
