There is a washer and dryer in the room, and it is fully furnished with a full-sized kitchen which has full-sized appliances. The bedrooms are plenty spacious with a nice master and bath. There is a gas fireplace, swimming pools, VCR and television and stereo. Every room has a view of the kelp beds where the whales feed.
