The townhouse is perfectly positioned on Lighthouse hill to capture magnificent views and breezes and sleeps 4 comfortably with a maximum of 6. The units soft furnishings have recently been upgraded to create a fun beachy feel. The middle level has a master bedroom with queen bed and a second bedroom has two king singles. The top floor with stunning views has a double sofa bed that can sleep an extra 2 people, (Please note the double sofa bed is really only suitable for 2 children or one adult). There is also a short daybed that captures the expansive southerly view of main beach. The ground floor kitchen and dining opens out to an entertaining deck and there is a claw foot bath in the bathroom to soak away the salt at the end of the day. Lighthouse Hill is very close to the beach, shops and cafe, so you can throw the car keys out the window, though mind you watch where they land for when you leave.
The kitchen has a microwave, electric oven and a gas cook top. The lounge has a TV and DVD player. There is a BBQ on the deck and a washing machine in the bathroom.
The unit is connected over all three levels with a narrow spiral staircase and is not really suitable for small children or elderly people with mobility issues. Linen is an additional $20 per person per stay and must be ordered at the time of booking by sending me a message requesting linen, I will then amend the amount for your confirmation.
