The main kitchen, living areas and main bedroom are on the first floor to maximise views sea views. Covered verandas, opening up to the living area with sliding doors, to both the south and north allow for outdoor living in either of the predominant weather conditions, namely summer south easters, and cold north western in the winter months.
