The cottage is made from local hand-chipped rock, and has a traditional terracotta roof. Very little concrete, paint and chemicals were used in the construction, and the wood is locally grown silver oak (non-indigenous with low absorption of CO2).
The cottage has a front veranda (12m2), bedroom (20m2) and attached bathroom (6m2). The bedroom has double/twin beds with extremely comfortable king sized duroflex spring mattresses, mosquito netting for the bed, and mosquito screened windows with wooden shutters. The mosquito protection is a precaution rather than a necessity as there are very few mosquitoes on the property. The bedroom is furnished with locally made cane furniture. The bathroom has a western style dry toilet with health faucet, shower area with 24 hour hot and cold running water, and wash basin.
In the cottage there is an electric kettle, coffee, teas and clean drinking water. There are incense, candles and mosquito coils. There is soap, toilet paper, telephone, torches/flashlights, umbrellas, walking sticks and a hair dryer. There is wifi Internet in the cottage (1 Mbps), and you can access our video and music library wirelessly if you are travelling with a laptop, tablet or smartphone. If you have an Airtel, Idea or Vodafone SIM, you should, on the property, be able to connect to those companies' 3G networks (4 Mbps).
