We also have inflatable beds for extra guests. The lounge / dining area is app. 26' by 18', with two oversized sofas and a recliner chair (all new in 2012). The carpets in the lounge, master bedroom and guest bedroom were all new in 2011. There is a 37 inch cable TV and DVD player provided.
The home has a split floor plan, with a huge ensuite bathroom with large round tub and separate shower to the master bedroom, and a smaller family bathroom for guests,
The kitchen is fully fitted with all appliances including dishwasher, and there is a small laundry cupboard with washer and drier.
At the rear of the house is a fully screened porch, 26' by 9', giving access to a west facing patio / sunbathing area to the rear of the utility shed, with loungers and recliner chairs, and a view overlooking the lake to the right. The nearest pool, is literally a couple of minutes walk away, and usually very quiet. The other two pools and facilities at reception are just a short walking distance away.
We have provided four bicycles (two adult, two childs) for the use of guests, tennis racquets etc, free wifi internet, sat nav etc. Our caretakers, Greg and Julie, are a great couple who are very helpful, and live just a short distance from the community.
