Put the head of the two beds, separated, against the straight walls on either side of the door, so a sleeper person would face the windows. Since a bedside table won't fit, you could install a medium shelf above the head of each bed, mind no one hits their head, and put a clock or ornament, some books, and a small lamp. Have a special "guest" section in the closets down that way on either side of the door, get a closet-fix thing with a drawer, a shelf, and a small hanging area, and show those to your guests. Suitcases perhaps on the floors or at the very top in there.

On one side at the foot of a bed, tucked under the eave, put the long side of a small desk or table, plus a chair, stack a couple small games and notebook, pen, and perhaps a TV set facing the beds. Then on the other side of the room, put a rocker to look out, a floor lamp, a very small table with coffee coaster, and a picture next to window or in between them. A non-slip runner rug could go down the middle between the beds. Hope you can picture this and glean and idea or so.

Good use of space having the beds face the windows. Just wanted to add a few tweaks. Some may work . Some not.

I would put an armoire or some other tall cupboard between the windows. TV could go in top shelves. Guests clothes in bottom. A little height is good for visual balance. Also makes for better TV watching.
No glare from windows.

Id put one of the tables at the end of the bed. If its under the eave guests wont be able to use it to unpack their suitcase. Eave will make it hard to open the lid.

At the head of the bed how about a deep narrow "cupboard" with a door on the aisle just wide enuf to slide in a suitcase. The top would be your shelf.
