The Space All alterations to the home have been made to bring this ocean experience to life. Entrance: At the end of a gated driveway, you will come to a private retreat. Leaving the vehicle behind, six wide steps lead to a courtyard and immediately in front an eight-foot-high glassed door with views of the ocean beyond, speaking of promises to come. Enter and leave stress, shoes, outdoor clothes and everyday life behind and enjoy the heated stone floor while the ocean beckons. Off the entrance conveniently located is the laundry/mudroom with all the necessary facilities to ensure warmth, dryness and cosiness, including that special warm floor. Turn around and see the ocean right in front of you. A sliding door separates the area. A convenient Powder Room completes the space.

Leaving the vehicle behind, six wide steps lead to a courtyard and immediately in front an eight-foot-high glassed door with views of the ocean beyond, speaking of promises to come. Enter and leave stress, shoes, outdoor clothes and everyday life behind and enjoy the heated stone floor while the ocean beckons. Off the entrance conveniently located is the laundry/mudroom with all the necessary facilities to ensure warmth, dryness and cosiness, including that special warm floor. Turn around and see the ocean right in front of you. A sliding door separates the area. A convenient Powder Room completes the space. Living Room Wing: Stop the clock—ocean views through the sliding glass walls are all encompassing. Sink into the feather cushioned sofas and slide into another world. A feather touch opens Cero sliding glass walls to the real world and lets you wander down the stepping stones to the Secret Cove and beach just there. ~ Sit reading ~ Kayak to nearby islands ~ Swim A world apart. Read from the many eclectic books available, with heated floor and floating Gyrofocus wood fireplace available for your comfort. Dining Room: Listening to your choice of music, choose what to eat and enjoy a glass of wine at the table with the glass walls completely open on both sides to experience nature, or with the glass walls closed to make you feel snug and warm. Or take a picnic down to what feels like your own small cove. Kitchen: A well-fitted kitchen awaits. Fully equipped with two ovens, microwave, pans, cooking pots, cooking utensils all available. There is a full-size fridge/freezer which you can stock with your own food. Glasses, plates, sideplates, bowls, knives and forks for a table setting of at least six. Salt, pepper, coffee and tea are supplied. For those special moments there is a selection of wine glasses. A whisper-quiet dishwasher is on hand for easy clean-up. Master Bedroom Wing: The Master Bedroom houses double doors that lead out onto the ocean. Its corner windows fill with the twinkling lights of Ganges which you can watch while snuggled up in the king-size bed, featuring a feather-top mattress and luxury cotton sheets. Extra pillows, blankets and sheets are there for your convenience. From the ensuite bathroom, a wide opening allows ocean views from the free-standing tub, and a choice of separate lighting creates its own ambience. There is a Dornbracht rain shower to start your day on heated floors and a warm towel from the towel warmer. Towels and toiletries abound. A well-lit walk-in closet allows for ample clothes storage. Quiet Wing: When the time comes for those intimate moments, the ‘Snug’ offers just that. A gas-fireplace turned on with a flick of a switch and with the sliding fir partition closed you can create a world of your own. The glass Nanawall corner completely opens to the small private garden with the bonsai apple tree. Lounge back on Ligne Roset sofas; read, watch your favorite movie on the 65 inch TV, or listen to music. Second Bedroom: This spacious bedroom is entered off the Snug and also has its own separate entrance. It has a queen size bed with soft cotton sheets, plenty of extra blankets and pillows and with its own spa bathroom entered through a corner of the Snug. Spa Bathroom: The spa bathroom has its own heated floor adjusted by yourself for your own comfort. It has two rainhead showers and a waterspout for your enjoyment. Upstairs: Floating stairs take you to a special place. Through the windows are the old apple trees on one side and views across to Goat Island and far up the bay towards the open ocean on the other. It’s an office or a third bedroom for a single with a futon. Why you need to come here: This home is a quiet luxurious retreat for those who wish to get away from it all and consider themselves deserving of something special. ~ A quiet retreat for two couples ~ A honeymoon destination ~ It may also act as a daytime Yoga space with teacher staying overnight with participants staying elsewhere. The home offers multiple opportunities for people to partake in different activities in various parts of the home. Every detail has been done to the highest standard to make guests feel special. Unfortunately, dogs are not welcome. No wild parties. Provision for concierge services can be made if required More
