ABOUT THE PROPERTY
You'll love our place, as the house itself is unique with 3 split levels on a lovely big property.
As you enter the red door, you're in a feng shui inspired tropical atrium with 2 rock ponds under a timber walkway which leads you into the house. The pond is home to 4 large turtles.
Once inside, you're in the kitchen & living area which are divided by a 6m high brick fireplace with soaring cathedral ceilings & exposed timber beams. Glass sliding doors open onto a balcony overlooking the pool, perfect for afternoon cocktails or having a drink while watching the kids in the pool. The living area has a large round leather lounge plus a 3 seat chaise leather lounge, aircon, 50inch Smart TV, Telstra TV with Netflix Stan YouTube etc plus PlayStation 2 & DVD player with a large selection of DVD's
The large kitchen is fully equipped with wonderful gas cooking, pots, pans, utensils, crockery etc, everything you need to cook up a storm, plus an 8-10 seater dining setting that looks into the atrium.
The top level has 2 bedrooms & main bathroom. Both bedrooms have queen beds with high quality mattresses, lovely fresh linen and extra pillows & super soft blankets available. First bedroom has a queen bed, small single sofa/bed, portacot and TV. Second bedroom has 2 queen beds. Both rooms have aircon, ceiling fans, built ins and sliding doors that open onto a balcony with an outdoor lounge. Fresh bath towels, hand towels and face cloths are provided.
The bathroom has a large corner spa bath, separate shower, toilet and double basin stone top vanity.
Down the stairs you’re in the sunroom turned ‘bedroom’ which opens directly out to the pool & alfresco area. This room has 2 sets of bunks, one having a bottom double bed and a desk. Third bedroom has a queen bed and TV and also opens out to the alfresco area, with double glazed windows and sliding door. Both rooms have ceiling fans. Second bathroom/laundry is on this level.
The pool & alfresco/dining areas are perfect for large groups or families. Great for spending the whole day outdoors cooking, eating, swimming, playing table tennis or just relaxing. The large beautiful salt water tiled pool (10m x 4m) is great for laps, with specialised mineral salts that are kind to your skin and hair & helps relax muscles. The alfresco area has a large outdoor bench seat dining setting (seats 20), an outdoor kitchen with a 5 burner gas stove & extra large oven (great for keeping the house cool in summer) BBQ, sink & fridge. Amongst it all we have table tennis which is a favourite with many of our guests who enjoy a friendly game or ‘heated comp’. For those who don’t want to miss their favourite show or sports game, there’s a TV you can watch from just about anywhere, perfect in the warmer months. No need to sit inside and miss out on a beautiful sunny day, just swing the TV where you want and watch while having lunch, cooking a barbie or in the pool with a cool drink.
The house accommodates 12 people comfortably with the beds provided but we can and have accommodated more using the lounges, queen air bed or porta cot.
PLEASE NOTE: We live in a villa on the property which is detached from the main house, a completely separate dwelling, with our own private side entrance & private sitting area that is sectioned off with bamboo blinds to provide some privacy for both hosts & guests.
The large outdoor and alfresco/dining areas are for your use and enjoyment but are shared with us, as we may on occasion use the outdoor kitchen, BBQ & pool
