How is the property laid out?
The ground floor incorporates a beautiful, open plan kitchen, pantry, dining and living room (all with amazing views), the master en-suite, king bedroom, a shared bathroom, a queen + single bedroom, and a third queen bedroom.

The upstairs level has a mezzanine style bedroom with a double bed. This bedroom is an open, loft style bedroom, above the master bedroom - FYI.
The ground floor spaces flow out onto a massive sun deck, or a covered side deck, or the swimming pool - making Black Star perfect for indoor - outdoor entertaining!

Complimentary WiFi is available and a password will be provided in your pre-arrival email. Please note that neither The Holidays Collection nor the owner can guarantee 100% that WiFi will work, and no compensation will be payable if problematic. If Wi-Fi is important, please therefore always have a back up plan.
What about outdoors?
Black Star is set on 5 acres and as it is a rural property, always take care with wildlife or other dangers, please. Most of the property is covered with mowed lawn areas, and there is also an enclosure for goats and alpacas. Guests are welcome to feed them during a stay.
The massive north facing deck, leading directly to the resort style pool is a key feature of Black Star, as per the photos. Black Star is perfect for indoor / outdoor living and relaxing while the kids swim in the pool or play on the lawns.
Stay warm or keeping cool?
Cooling options include opening up the full width folding glass doors across the entire width of the house to catch the breeze, utilising the numerous ceiling fans, or turning on the airconditioners (one in the kitchen / living area) and one in the mezzanine bedroom area which causes cool air to also tumble down to the master bedroom. Heating options include a wall mounted electric heater in the living room (for quick heat), and a Cheminees Philippe glass box log fire that is the centrepiece of the dining and living area.
What about sheets, towels and other supplies?
