Features & Facilities

Bedroom: All villas have one bedroom with a Sleepyhead Elegance Plush kingsize bed (can be made as two singles) that faces out towards the sea through bi-fold windows and is supplied with high-quality linen, bathrobes and beach towels.

Capacity: The villas are designed as luxurious accommodations for two. If you have 3 people in your party, our Beachfront Studio may be available to accommodate the additional guest, please enquire.

Living space: The spacious, open-plan living/dining room has quality dining furniture, a lounge suite, either a gas or electric built-in wall heater, smart TV with Chromecast (allowing you to access your own Netflix, Sky Go, Prime etc from your smartphone), DVD player and Bluetooth speaker.  Bi-fold doors open outdoors to connect the living room and the deck.

Outdoor space: Private outdoor space is generous.  At the front of each villa is a large deck equipped with quality wooden outdoor dining furniture, sun umbrella, sun loungers, deck chairs and an extensive groomed lawn looking out to the beach.  Behind each villa is a large enclosed courtyard with Weber BBQ.

Kitchen: The kitchen includes a 4-burner gas cooktop, full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, blender, cookware, crockery, cutlery, & glassware.  A hooded Weber barbecue is located in the villa courtyard, for alfresco dining.  Milk, a selection of teas and freshly ground organic, fair-trade coffee is provided and replenished as required.

Bathroom: The stylish, tiled bathroom features a large two-person 18-jet hydro-therapy spa bath, shower over bath, under-floor heating, heated towel rail, Egyptian cotton bath towels, hairdryer and locally produced artisan toiletries. 

  • The villas have a large indoor floor area (45 square metres), a deck facing the beach (20 square metres), and an enclosed courtyard at the rear, with the addition of at least 200 square metres of private lawn at the front of each villa.
  • Privacy has been a major consideration.  With this in mind, the villas have no side windows and each deck is screened from the deck of the adjacent villa
  • The floors are solid Eucalyptus; the Lawson Cyprus ceilings have exposed Douglas Fir rafters.  All woods are plantation grown - we have avoided the use of native timbers (please see our Environment Initiatives page if you're interested in reading more on this).
