Because it was my own home, i thought , how cool would it be to have all the things in it, that i have always wanted,........ and if i couldn't find it ...i just made it

Here is a list of all the things i always wanted in resort living.....and have provided them ....and freely made them avaliable for you

 

ceiling fan in each room (however, of course, that is not uncommon)

 

This way we could have all the doors open in summer all day.....strong air movement.....no flies....cool

Complete anti mosquito living (on a wetland)

 

I had total mosquito free living, when the neighbours couldn't even go outside...... this photo taken at 6pm....everything open at the worst time of day in front of a mosquito infested wetland

Dont ask me to patent it .....there's a fair bit involved (not interested...to old...rather just bless people before i caack it)... ...but i'll show you what i did....... (i had malaria in the Congo, so i don't like mozzis....ha!)

 

6 gas heater fittings

 

Wanted to be able to heat rooms individually,..... particularly bedrooms if we had guests ......had 3 mobile gas heaters (like this one opposite) .....extremely efficient....in winter we used them in the outdoor dining area......outdoor dining in mid winter....very cosy

self - cleaning swimming pool

 

I always wanted to work out a way to have a self- cleaning swimming pool.... and believe it or not.....it worked, and i never had to clean the pool....looked like this photo all year round

no creepy crawly things in this pool

2 speed waterfall (trickle or torrent)

 

Iv'e stayed at resorts occasionaly (like you)........ and i thought why don't i have this type of living, all the time.............why pay someone else for a special experience when i can have it every day.......and staying at a resort once, where there was a feature, a  trickling waterfall,.......inspired me to build my own (and now you can too) ......

I thought, ....how cool it would be, to have a torrent of water coming over the waterfall, and being able to sit under or behind it,.....which you can do in this pool...such fun... 

Camping at the haruru falls in New Zealand, years ago, and standing under it was my inspiration

2 way air conditioning (upstairs and downstairs)

 

Split air conditioning turned out to be a real life saver in the 40 degree heat of Perth in the summer.......yes .....its expensive to run, but you only use it on uncomfortable days

Being a reverse cycle unit, they would prove to be invaluable, to take the chill out of the air, in such a big open living spacious area, in the winter......particularly if you were entertaining 

Wired sound throughout

 

Now i know, in this day and age, that you can have all sorts of mobile sound systems... ...like a UE Boom (which i have had several of).....and it's very convenient.............but im'e telling you, there's no comparison to sitting with a glass of wine,...doors wide open, vinyl record thumping out 'Santana' or 'Andre Rieu' with built in, big Bose woofers filling the whole room ....(we did that often, and believe it or not, no complaints from the neighbors).....sound was projected towards the wetlands.......the speakers were wired to the pool , both spas, downstairs and upstairs dining area (with seperate volume controls)

I used to have a backyard stereo manufacturing business in my hippie days, so setting up a system such as this , was simple for me and it will be for you to........

Tiles in the garages

 

I saw this somewhere, and i thought how cool to tile your garage floors.........so i did it

Private spa

 

hot spa,.... massage jets,....... awesome sound and volume control,.....bubbles, .......candles,....... coloured lighting and dimmer, ........fragrance

with a bottle of red on a cold wet winters night with a storm and lightning outside...so cosy!! 

Underfloor heating downstairs

 

Let me tell you....There's nothing nicer on the feet, than walking barefoot on a heated tiled floor in the middle of winter..........there's nothing worse (so to speak) than walking on a cold tiled floor in winter
