The lawn was clean and taken care of, the neighbours were friendly. The view was really pretty and we were close to the beach. Perfect place for vacation.

The beds were extremely comfortable and kitchen had eveything needed. We could have stayed there forever, just looking out at the ocean, listening to the waves and watching the sunset. The weather was not amazing, but this did not stop us enjoying the holiday. Excellent location and we most definitely will be staying there again. Family absolutely loved it there. Met Sarah at the end of stay, lovely lady! Thank you so much!
