The SpaceThis is vacation home that is well maintained and equipped to a standard above the average vacation home in western Europe. This is because it is our own personal vacation home and it is very important to us that the house provides above average comfort. As it is our own home, we have taken a lot of care and effort to renovate and finish the house in a way that appeals to us.
Recently renovated, the house has 3 bedrooms, a spacious multi-purpose room which can be used as a bedroom or office, two spacious halls, two bathrooms (one ensuite and one shared) with showers, sink and toilet, a kitchen with storeroom, guest toilet and sink, corridor and verandah, back terrace behind kitchen and outdoor parking space for up to 3 vehicles.
The house is very airy and light throughout, due to the many windows (louvres) and elevated location close to the sea. It also offers beautiful views of McCarthy hills and surrounding towns and overlooks the salt ponds (great for Christmas and new years fireworks viewing).
Room details: the bedrooms have solid wooden beds, a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, a queen-sized bed in the second large bedroom, and a double bed in the smallest bedroom. There is an inflatable double bed that can be used in the multi-purpose room if needed. All wooden beds have matching bedside tables, with table lamps, and alarm clock radio. Each bedroom also has a real rattan sofa with coffee table and lamp, as well as solid fitted redwood wardrobes. The two large bedrooms also have air conditioning (brand new LG) and the master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.
Halls: the living room has a real rattan sitting chair set with coffee tables and table lamp, a 6-seater solid wooden dining table set, flat screen TV with satellite programmes, DVD player and an air conditioner. The visitors' hall has a full cane sitting chair set as well as a spare cane dining table and chairs set, and standing lamps. This hall doesn't not currently have air conditioning. Adjacent to the visitors hall is a guest toilet with sink.
Kitchen: the fully equipped kitchen has solid wood fitted cabinets, double stainless steel sink with two drying wings, and store room with multiple shelves for optimal storage. It offers all kitchen equipment you can find in a proper western European kitchen, including coffee maker with mill, microwave oven, electric kettle and tea pot, liquidizer/chopper/food processor, various cooking pots, frying pans, baking tins, cooking utensils, table and serve ware, variety of glasses and cleaning equipment. Since spring 2016, we have also installed a brand new full-sized European refrigerator with freezer compartment and a brand new full-sized European cooker with five burners and electric fan oven. We offer a complete western standard kitchen and a great cooking experience.
Bathrooms: the ensuite master bedroom bathroom, has a spacious shower with German armature, brand new European water heater, toilet, sink and mirror with shaving lamp. The second bathroom also has German armature, toilet, sink and LG self-heating 5 kg load capacity washing machine.
The house also offers a lovely solid redwood garden chair set with cushions which can be used on the verandah where you will have a lovely view of beautiful palms and bougainvillea flowers on a manicured lawn.
There is a laundry rack and spider which can be used to hang large loads of laundry, and several plastic laundry baskets, and clothes pegs. Guest AccessGuests will have the entire house to themselves - it will be like your own home and you will have your privacy. Except for night time security and emergency maintenance personnel, you will be on your own. You will be entirely responsible for security during the day (6 am to 8 pm). Interaction with GuestsWe (the owners) arrange rentals directly with guests and we control on-the-ground service. We are your main contact people for this rental. There are no agents involved. We tightly control access to the house as it is a private vacation home, so you need to arrange viewing through us. The NeighborhoodDansoman/South Odokor is the largest residential Estate in Africa.
