Original paintings hang on most walls and there is an upright piano in the dining room. The main verandah has a teak dining table suitable for 8 and a sofa / armchair / stone coffee table corner which offer a great place to enjoy the panoramic views.

Outside, the landscaping includes terraces and decks with stone paths through flower beds of indigenous aromatic plants and herbs surrounding the house. A heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi finished in Pebbletec and natural rocks are inspired by the fresh water pools found in the streams and gorges of the White Mountains and create a feeling of being close to nature. The stone decks surrounding the pool area have been selected to remain cool even in the August mid day heat, for barefoot comfort. The wide stone kitchen window ledge extends out to the pool area to form a breakfast/drinks bar. The tall stools underneath make this an ideal place to to enjoy a drink or two and also allows dishes and drinks to be passed through conveniently.

Sunbeds and a table and chair setting for 8 are located on the pool deck underneath a shady pergola, with magnificent views all round. A BBQ area is provided near by.

Two free standing hammocks can be moved to shady or sunny spots on the deck, according to preference.

At the top of the drive, close to the main entrance of the house, are two wide, shaded, private parking spaces.

4 bicycles are available for use by our guests. We also have some gym equipment which our guests can use.

For families with babies we can provide a cot with linen, a high chair, a changing mat, a baby bath, bottle steriliser, play mat and a variety of toys.
