FEATURES

Each habitat sleeps up to four people with either 2 king beds or a king size and two single beds.
All the habitats are heated with in-floor heating and ethanol fireplaces for those snowy winter nights. A heated drying rack in the entry way provides a convenient way to dry your ski gear after a long day on the slopes.
Each habitat includes a self contained kitchen with microwave/convection oven, hot plate, fridge, dishwasher, kettle, toaster (and all necessary cooking utensils) – allowing for self catering (the Jindabyne Woolworths is a quick ten minute drive away to replenish supplies). There is also Weber BBQ on the deck.
