All public and communal space is located outdoors. Sorry, no kitchen or laundry facilities are available.

A variety of coffee inserts are available to choose from.

Grab a beach towel and plunge into the pool or hot tub! Want some tunes to go along with that swim? Plug your iPod into the outdoor CD/Tuner/IPod system.
