Floor finishes are high quality terracotta paving stones except in the kitchen and bathrooms, where they are ceramic tiles. All four bedrooms benefit from air conditioning and are served by two bathrooms, one being en suite to the master bedroom. At present, the fourth bedroom is an office with a built-in desk.
The en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom has dual sinks. The second bathroom has one single sink. Both bathrooms include a large shower and a toilet.

The beautiful tropical garden includes a large tiled swimming pool with decking in tropical yew. There are two large tiled terraces from which you will enjoy the stunning views of the lagoon.

The swimming-pool is built into the ground, is tiled and surrounded by a deck in ipé (an exotic wood). There is a technical room below the pool with the pump and the cleaning system.
There is a large garage for two cars and a large storage room/cellar. A domestic well and a 12,000 litre tank supply fresh water. Internet, Wi-Fi and TV cable are connected to the villa.
