Before the project, access to the deck was via a slightly rickety ladder. Guests that weren't very agile or who had a fear of heights had a great disdain for the ladder. Plus, if you wanted to carry up a snack and drinks to celebrate the sunset, it made a difficult climb. Now, the wood steps lead up to a platform that connects to the balcony of the private bedroom suites in the four bedroom house, then turns and continues upward to the oceanview deck. We're looking forward to the easy climb to one of the best spots at the hostel.
Coming up soon on the project roster:
-tiling the pool deck
-installing a fire pit
-starting up weekly outdoor movie nights
-moving the 6-bed dorm to a bigger space
