The ground level of the cottage has an open kitchen, dining and living room and toilet. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms separated by the stairs, where 5 people can sleep.

Within the walls of the garden you will find the generously sized swimming pond, which is positioned between the plants of the garden. No chemicals are used in the water, so you can enjoy swimming without irritating your eyes and skin, or impacting the environment. This also means that some frogs are also able to enjoy a swim in the clean, fresh water. The water is cleaned naturally through lava stones and plants, and then finally filtered through an ultraviolet light in the pump house.
There is an outside shower where you can wash off your sunscreen before getting into the pool, and we respectfully ask you to use organic sunscreen, so that you reduce what you take with you into the water.
