INDOOR APPOINTMENTS ~The main living/dining area has dining for 6, conversation pit, queen sleeper sofa, working fireplace, ceiling fan, flat-panel LCD TV/DVD with free cable service, vaulted ceilings, 2 skylights & lots of windows. In the fully equipped chefs kitchen you’ll find s-s appliances & granite counters, salt & pepper, paper goods, cleaning/laundry soaps, and a dining guide. French doors open from the kitchen into the screened Garden Room…affording an extraordinary entertainment venue containing 2nd dining/living area. The ‘Bamboo’ bedroom features bamboo 4-poster bed and chests, extra wide armchair/foot rest, and skylight shower in bathroom….views of the gardens & bed netting lend to the feel of an Indonesian rainforest adventure. The 2nd bathroom features a roman Jacuzzi tub, phone, and linen closet…beach towels of course. There are 3 additional phone sets in the Cottage…and free long distance service. The “Indian Elephant” bedroom is done up with brass 4-poster & elephant accessories. Cottage walls are adorned with faux painted surfaces, art, and many fine details throughout (see if you can find the mermaids). We even provide 2 umbrellas…after-all, it is a rainforest.
OUTDOOR APPOINTMENTS~ We’re not sure which category the Garden Room falls into…indoor or outdoor….because it so seamlessly brings the two together. In either case it’s a place to enjoy the comforts of indoors…outdoors. If you want to take it a step further…then make your way into the back garden & enjoy conversation around the firepit or under the jungle umbrella, feed the squirrels & birds, or char up a meal on the BBQ. Nite-time ushers in a completely different venue…the gardens lit by tiki torches.
