Outside smoking is fine. The deck is roofed but the night sky views are amazing!

  • this is an excellent house! home away from home

    this is an excellent house! home away from home. HUGE deck, fully covered. Super place if you come with kids - they have heaps of space to play - outside, or still outside but under roof if it's rainy. inside - it's great as well. the house is really big. very quiet location. we just love it and definitely will come here again.
