It truly feels like a home away from home, and it goes to show that you don’t have to give up modern luxuries while vacationing in a more quiet and secluded area.

There’s a comfortable bed that’s plush and just about perfect for anyone. There are also modern luxuries included such as a TV and a phone deck, so make use of those for a romantic night in? This bedroom is decorated simply and is extremely comfortable. The fan will help cool the entire room down so save some time for yourself and have a day inside. There’s another bedroom that is smaller but still equally as comfortable, so it’ll be perfect if you need to accommodate a large group of people. There’s also a bright and spacious game room, from the TV to the pool table, there’s surely something for everyone here. So… Does anyone fancy a game of pool? Be it rain or shine, you’ll be able to enjoy a warm and relaxing soak under this covered terrace! The view isn’t half bad either, so why not enjoy making use of this hot tub.
