Ideally suited to 4 persons, however can accommodate up to 6. On request, there is single fold-up bed for adults and a port-a-cot for children (there is also a bumbo for infants). The bathroom has a shower over a small bath and toilet. Reverse cycle air conditioning and heating is provided. There is a kitchenette with microwave, kettle, toaster, electric frypan, hot plate, slow cooker and fridge. While there are limited cooking facilities, a Webber BBQ is on the large verandah.
