Just inside the courtyard is a private guest cabana with a spacious room that can be used as a bedroom or bonus living space with a full ensuite bathroom, walk-in shower and large walk-in closet. The opposite side of the courtyard is surrounded by sliding glass doors that lead to each room of the main home.
