Finding your Property
From the main entrance where the security hut is positioned, drive through the gate and bear left, drive through the car park ahead, and exit right when you get to a four-way crossroads for Clearwater and Howell's Mere properties.
Continue forward over the bridge taking the immediate right towards Howells Mere and Clearwater properties. Continue along this road and you will get to a point where the road splits off either left or right. Bear left and continue along the road passing the Spa and Tennis courts on your right and houses on your left. At the end of this road, you will see a bridge in front of you.
Cross over this bridge into Howell's Mere and turn right through a couple of wooden gates. Keep following the road straight along while keeping an eye on the properties on your left-hand side. Follow the road halfway down until you get to an apartment block on your left which is bigger than the other properties. In front of it is a boat store and the parking spot is just beyond this boat store labelled with the number 86. Follow the walking path to the apartment door. Hazy Blue is a first-floor apartment.
