Such a comforting, well furnished and amazing property with views to die for. Have never seen anything like it. We had the pleasure of eating breakfast on the balcony and watching whales play in the ocean. Thank you Jan for calling us about the whales, was a wonderful experience. Will definitely be back for longer next time!
