The property can accommodate up to three guests.

There is an extra long, comfy built in couch with an amazing view out the large, bifold window to the ocean that can be used for snuggling (or an extra guest). At the end of the tin house there is a queen-sized bed with luxury bed linen. The hosts provide two duvets on the bed for winter so it’s extra warm. Also included is a beautiful and clean bathroom with a hot shower and a flushing toilet. Other amenities include solar power LED lights, a gas heater for those cooler nights (please note the bus is fully insulated), and a chilly bin (Cool Stool) to help keep guests' food and drinks cold.
