The large living room of this very attractive and spacious 2½-bedroom apartment is furnished with wide and comfortable sofa and pair of armchairs focussed around a 30-inch wall mounted flat-screen TV.
The kitchen is raised a few feet above the living area. This split-level arrangement helps to give the apartment an extra touch of individuality. The kitchen is very well equipped with a medium sized fridge-freezer, six ring bottled gas stove with grill (broiler) and griddle, microwave oven, toaster, blender, kettle and a small coffee filter machine. A range of under and over counter units provide lots of room for storage of groceries, etc.
Leading off the upper raised kitchen area is the 14m2/150ft2 master-bedroom suite. This is simply but attractively furnished with a queen-size bed, a dressing table and a small wardrobe. The old air-conditioner mentioned in our previous review has been replaced by a truly excellent Toshiba split unit. The en suite bathroom has the usual trio of facilities – washbasin, walk-in shower and toilet. Everything was well presented and in excellent maintenance order.
The 13.5m2/145ft2 second bedroom suite is accessed from the living area. It has a double bed with bedside tables and lamps and lots of wardrobe space. The bathroom acts as a general powder room for the living area, so is not quite en-suite, but as the doors to the bathroom and bedroom are immediately adjacent, it is as good as en-suite. The bathroom is furnished identically to the master suite bathroom. Like all the other bedrooms at Bayview, a good split unit air-conditioner ensures that guests sleep comfortably.
Wide double doors separate the living area from a large (7x4m) covered balcony. This offers beautiful views over Stonehaven Bay, the front gardens and the pool area. It is furnished with a circular table with four comfortable-looking rattan chairs, a padded sun recliner, a day bed, an armchair and a bottled gas barbeque unit.
It would be hard not to be captivated by this lovely studio apartment. It simply oozes character.
Located on the ground floor of the villa, Crew’s Nest is situated immediately adjacent to the swimming pool and just a few steps above the front gate and short walk to the beach. It offers a reasonably spacious 51m2/550ft2 of fully air-conditioned accommodation space and constitutes a very homely holiday pied-à-terre.
The front of the apartment is dominated by a wide terrace furnished with a large circular table with sun umbrella, a comfortable 3-seater padded swinging bench with canopy and two all-weather padded sun recliners. The private terrace benefits from partial or total shade throughout the day and overlooks the lush tropical gardens.
Entering the apartment through the wide double doors, the scene is very romantic and intimate – a description not intended to infer ‘cramped’. It would undoubtedly make a wonderful honeymoon suite. Like the larger apartments upstairs, the decoration is colourful, imaginative and very tasteful. You instantly feel at home.
The living area is furnished with two comfortable rattan sofas and matching armchairs facing a flat-screen cable TV with DVD player. A small breakfast bar with high stools separates the living area from the kitchen. Fully self-contained, the kitchen is equipped with a 4-ring bottled gas stove with grill, a medium-sized fridge-freezer, microwave oven, coffee filter machine, electric toaster and kettle. There is a small but adequate collection of crockery, cutlery, glassware and kitchen utensils.
The bathroom and bedroom are located on the other side of the living area and separated from it by a tasteful archway and wood panelled screen. With its decorative mosquito canopy and attractive light-rattan side tables and lamps, the bedroom is truly romantic.
Next to the bed is a small dressing area, with a 1.5m wardrobe, a small dressing table and desk/dresser unit with three storage drawers. The bathroom is small, but has a fully tiled shower with intriguing portholes in the wall.
