A safe-deposit box is located in the second bedroom which is available for all guests.
The en-suite bathroom comprises stunning White Italian tiling with a striking Karndean slate floor to compliment the modern white ceramics and ultra-chic chrome fittings. The suite has twin wash basins with superb individual touch-sensitive individual lit mirrors. There is a wall-mounted WC and over-sized 1800mm bath, overhead shower and funky three-way wall mounted valves. It makes for a very nice place to be...as the resident family of yellow ducks will testify!

The shower room has the same dynamic look, with single basin and touch-sensitive individual lit mirror, WC and huge double sized cubicle with both hand held and fixed-head 'rain shower.

The 24' decking area is accessible from the master bedroom or the lounge. There is a Rattan patio table and four Rattan chairs which convert into loungers making for a fabulous space to either wine and dine alfresco, or simply take in the sights and sounds of the beautifully manicured tropical gardens which lead down to Carbis Bay beach.
