There is exquisite gourmet kitchen with granite bench tops,  stainless steel appliances and a coffee machine.  It is well equipped to cope with even the most indulgent feasts, or send the Crew to the 4 burner BBQ to cook up your ‘Catch of the Day’.

There is also a separate bar area with fridge to make cocktail hour more inspiring. Then, dine under the stars at one of the 3 outdoor settings.
