A staircase is cleverly integrated for access into the loft that would make an ideal occasional third bedroom, study or studio. A wraparound deck allows for morning, midday and afternoon sun with fabulous water views across the lagoon and Knysna River. Clear Guard Trellidoors on the bedrooms ventilate both sleeping areas on those hot summer nights.
