The Artist Residence is a guesthouse run by very nice young people who try hard to please. The location near the harbor and main shopping areas is wonderful. There is a lot of art on display within the premises, from the dining room downstairs to the bedrooms. Some of it is pleasing to the eye and some of it looks odd and junky. The bedrooms are crammed with more furniture and knick-knacks than seems to be either necessary or enhancing. The bathrooms are poorly equipped for travelers, because of a lack of shelving and decent lighting. Breakfast choices are quite good, innovative and healthy. Artist Residence neither pleases nor offends its guests. It could use some tender loving care.
