The downstairs study with its queen size sofa bed can easily convert into a 5th double bedroom with A/C and ceiling fan, using the adjacent full guest cloak/shower room as its own private ensuite.
A separate, fully air-conditioned guest cottage with sitting room and kitchenette contains the 6th double bedroom with its own shower room, cable TV, telephone and CD/radio as well as a breezy balcony with sea and sunset views.
Further down the hill, a romantic gazebo seating just four is perfect for sipping cocktails at sunset while watching fireflies dance in the dusk.
