Rent a water vacation

WHAT is luxury? The Roalmans recommend this definition: to be able to get up in the morning, walk a few feet, dive into a quiet lake. That's luxury.

LET'S GET LOST...

A sweep of space right down the middle gives this compact house breathing room. During the day, it's all open from the deck and dining area to the parents' "bedroom" (a folding partition can close the sleeping area at night). Children's bunks are in the wing at left; all work-space and plumbing are concentrated in right wing. A raised wood deck rims the house on two sides --youngsters (and adults, too) can come from a swim right to shower and de-sanding room.

He gives the impression of going in opposite directions simultaneously.
