House is really well equipped and has 2 large lounge areas so lots of space for everyone to relax. The huge garden has plenty of room for the kids to explore and there is a path down through the trees to the private lake front with outstanding views of the sandbar, the children loved having "their own beach". We had a great time at Bower Bird House and look forward to staying again.
