Bongo's can accommodate up to 5 people and is a fully self-contained two bedroom villa set on 1.4 hectares of park-like grounds. The open plan living area with well equipped full kitchen leads out to the sun-drenched terrace. Cook dinner on the barbecue and eat at the outdoor dining setting while watching the moon rise over the lake for an economical and easy family dinner. DVDs, CDs, books and games are all provided for relaxing on the comfy lounge, whatever the weather. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has three single beds. A laundry is available on-site. Linen and towels are not provided.
The kids will have a fabulous time playing in the warm, shallow water of the lake right in front of Bongo's. Walk or paddle across the lake to Sandbar ocean beach or fish from the shore. Explore the lake and its islands by kayak, catamaran or dinghy, all available for hire from the famous Frothy Coffee Boatshed, just a 10 minute easy walk around the lake shore. If you have your own boat, it can be launched from the small boat ramp on our beach and left there for the duration of your stay (at your own risk of course). Use the on-site tennis court or kick a ball with the kids on the extensive lawns in front of Bongo's. With all this at your fingertips, you can pack away the car keys.
