How many gas grills does Life is Golden have? Since it is 4 wheel drive only to get there -- where do non 4 wheel cars park, and is there a cost to park cars?

In one of the pictures it shows a volleyball net on the pool. Will that be there for us to use during our stay?
Paige, volleyball nets at pools are not standard amenities, so it was most likely just placed there by that guest at that time!
