Beach Front Camp – en-suite Family Beachfront Unit
This unit (only 1 – so pre booking essential) is essentially two units joined together to make two bedrooms. A large deck runs full width across the front, and each room can be accessed separately, through its own sliding door.
Both rooms can access the very large en-suite bathroom, which can be locked from the inside to ensure privacy. Bathrooms are similarly equipped as units above.
The main bedroom has a double bed, and the second bedroom has 2 single beds. Both are fitted with same bedding and equipped with the same furniture and appliances as the seafront units above. Extra beds at the relevant price list price is possible in the second bedroom.
A nice feature is that more most of the area in front has natural dune vegetation, affording the unit a degree of wind protection, shade and privacy.
Extra beds are possible only in unit no.6, and the 2nd room of the family unit, at the relevant price list price.
Service: the rooms are serviced daily. Please notify reception what time you would like this done
