The bathroom is right next to your room. We have one other guest room that will share this bathroom with you if that room is also booked at the same time. The bathroom will alway be kept very clean for you. A hair dryer and iron/ board are also available.
In the large kitchen, you are welcome to prepare a fancy meal or just enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or hot chocolate! We have ice cold filtered water through the refrigerator, a four burner gas stove, outdoor BBQ, and microwave -- pretty much anything you need to prepare a meal!
