In spite of the stairs, the room was entertaining enough and the property was surprising.
Their lot was long and narrow. All the many odd buildings (bungalows, converted tabacco warehouse, the original owner’s house etc.), four pools, paths and sitting areas scattered throughout the property seemed private and completely protected by thick and appropriate landscaping.
The place was very conveniently one block off the main drag yet you could easily, if you squinted a bit and hummed out loud, imagine yourself in a secluded sub-tropical retreat.
