As in the kitchen, the ceiling of the ensuite master bedroom is some 17ft high at the highest point. This makes the room taller than it is wide or long, giving it an unusual but spacious feel.
The room is simply furnished with a comfortable queen-size bed, plus matching nightstands and a tall chest of drawers. As everywhere in the house, the furnishings were of the highest quality. The house is fully serviced with regular changes of linen and towels, etc.
An attractive spiral staircase leads from the bedroom to a narrow gallery. This runs around two sides of the bedroom and utilises the space above the ensuite bathroom to provide a series of deep wardrobes.
Glazed patio doors lead directly from the bedroom to the front veranda. With the doors open, the cooling breezes keep the bedroom cool throughout the day. Sadly, it would not be wise to leave the doors open at night, so guests must then choose between the overhead fan or the air-conditioner.
The fully tiled ensuite bathroom is spacious and furnished with the usual trio of walk-in shower, wash basin and toilet, plus a bidet.
All bathroom fittings were in good condition and there was lots of hot water. Towels and linen were spotlessly clean and of high quality.
Bedrooms 2 and 3 are on the upper floor and accessed via a wide staircase from the living room. The upper rooms are effectively loft rooms, making use of the floor space immediately beneath the roof. This means slightly reduced headroom at the edges of the room, but as the rooms are so spacious, this is not an issue.
Bedroom 2 is particularly large; so much so that it is furnished with two queen-size beds. The only other furnishings in the room are two built-in wardrobe cupboards. In fairness, we stayed at the house before it was fully prepared for rental and I assume that by the time guests arrive, a chair and other accoutrements will have been added to make the upper bedrooms a little more homely. The bareness of the room was disappointing because the open roof joists give this room great character. With its arched glazed balcony doors giving stunning views of Bacolet and the sea, the room could be perfectly charming.
Modern split-unit air-conditioners provide whisper-quiet cooling to both upper bedrooms. Both also have ceiling fans and glazed doors onto a small walk-on balcony. The rooms are so high above the ground that it would hardly constitute a security risk to leave the balcony doors open at night, enabling guests to enjoy the wonderful natural cool sea breezes, rather than relying upon air-conditioning.
Neither of the upper bedrooms have ensuite facilities, but instead, share an adjacent common bathroom. This is fitted with a tiled walk-in shower, washbasin, toilet and another bidet.
The spacious third bedroom lies directly opposite the second bedroom with views over the lush tropical trees and shrubs at the rear of the property. The room is furnished with two single beds. There is also a wooden built-in cupboard, plus lots of shelving for clothing.
