We loved the stunning location over the water. Our room was lovely but unbearably hot, although there was a fan it had little effect. In cooler weather it would be perfect. There was just a raised bath with a shower attachment which was difficult to get into. There was a beautiful patio with an assortment of comfortable chairs with a fire pit and blankets.
