August is not available to book yet. Pretty sure the earliest you can book is about 7 months in advance. I just booked 2 different weeks in May 2019.

I don't know the exact dimensions but I would say it's about the same as a full size bunk bed mattress which would be approximately 53 inches wide by 74 inches long by 6 inches high
