This house will entertain you. Things to do: swim lengths in our 36 x 18' indoor pool, have a sauna, watch your favourite movies in the home theatre, relax on the decks and watch the eagles and yachts sail by, curse the many deer as they eat our flowers, listen to the seals barking, play billiards, walk down to the beach. On less pleasant days you can sit in the atrium and enjoy the plants. The kitchen is set up with an eating area and entertainment centre so the cooks need not be isolated.
The third floor has a large master bedroom suite, complete with jacuzzi bath from where you can enjoy views. It also has an ensuite, sitting area with cable TV & DVD and a private deck facing west.
The second floor has two ocean facing bedrooms. The 'purple bedroom' with queen bed, also has a view of the indoor pool. The 'blue bedroom' has a double bed.

A caretaker lives in the suite above the garage and will answer any questions or concerns.
